The Grand Hotel Alkmaar is beautifully situated on the Gedempte Nieuwesloot in the centre of Alkmaar, close to shops and the city's famous Cheese Market. You can take many fun days trips from Alkmaar, for instance to the beach or to Amsterdam.

The listed building in which the Grand Hotel Alkmaar is established was built in a neo gothic style. Until 1916 it served as a post office and the building has since been extensively renovated to allow guests to stay in style. In the deluxe hotel rooms original features are combined with contemporary facilities such as a flatscreen television, a jacuzzi and double showers.

  • (Young couples)
Comfortable hotel right in the centre.
  • + Great service, very nice location, clean.
  • A lot of noise from the street (we had a room at top floor at the front) on friday night and saturday early morning.
  • * my tip Have a lovely time wandering through Alkmaar's little streets.
  • (Other)
Very nice stay in Alkmaar
  • + Location is excellent, hotel is lovely.
  • The shower has no curtain and no privacy which for a couple might not be such a problem but for a couple of guys was not "comfortable". The breakfasts are very adequate by Dutch standards but not North American. There are no facecloths so bring your own.
  • * my tip Three blocks from the market square
  • (Older couples)
Nice Dutch town with attractive canal system, and good restaurants,
  • + Very central location. Very interesting modern conversion of the old post office. Good breakfast buffet until 11am on weekends,
  • Nice room but no closet to store clothes.
  • * my tip Friday Cheese market at 10am is good fun, re-enacting how the ancient market worked, with good free commentary. Free 30 minute organ concerts at Friday lunchtime in the Groote Kerk venue, with a spectacular interior.
  • (Other)
Thoughtful , friendly and helpful service in the heart of Alkmaar
  • + Very friendly and helpful staff.
  • A little bit more variety for breakfast i.e fresh fruits or cereals.

  • * my tip The boat hire in town is very good value.
  • (Young couples)
slechte service
  • We hadden 5 dagen van teovoren een kamer geboekt. Bevestiging ontvangen. Echter 1 uur voor inchecken ontvangen we een telefoontje dat ze zich vergist hadden bij het boeken van de datum en dat we niet konden komen. En ze hadden alleen een alternatief buiten de stad. We waren er al, maar konden dus weer gewoon huiswaarts. Slechte service en ongeinteresseerd.
  • (Older couples)
Great location in Alkmaar close to the cheese market
  • + Excellent location and service. Loved the old fashion lift to our top floor room. Good breakfast.
  • Bed was a little soft for my liking and would have liked a more high pressure shower
  • (Older couples)
This is not a 4 star hotel
  • + Good central location, with a brilliant Thai restaurant opposite the hotel.
  • Walls in room and corridoor were bubbling with damp. Shortage of staff with reception being manned by bar staff. Towels in bathroom were threadbare! Skip breakfast and eat out.
  • (Travelling alone)
no 4 star....
  • + there is no many plus points, for a Grand Hotel 4 Star is only the nice building.....nothing else, I think the restaurant was always empty. Breakfast is rather o.k there is no fresh coffee included, free internet.
  • the rooms only small window, beds much to soft, open bathroom, the floor smells to wet carpet.... service very unfriendly in the morning...bad chairs in the bar ,also to soft and too deep. the floor not clean...
  • (Young couples)
  • + Beautifull room, good breakfast, located in the heart of Arnhem
  • Entree does not feel like hotel lobby
  • (Travelling alone)
luxury for cheap
  • Ask for a room at the backside of the hotel due to Market on saturday morning. They start seeting the market at 0500.
  • (Travelling alone)
Charming hotel in the center of Alkmaar
  • credit card system unavailable when checking out
  • (Friends)
If staying briefly, this hotel provides all of your needs,
  • + We booked in for the one night as we were in the city for a football match. The hotel was clean and proved to be adequate. The service was of a high standard, and very helpful. As our stay was only brief, I cannot find any faults. I would use again if in Alkmaar.
  • Would have liked more of a choice at breakfast.
  • (Families with young children)
el mejor hotel de Alkmaar
  • + Hotel muy bonito, recien rehabilitado ( no creo que tenga ni un año 2008)con habitaciones de diseño amplias, comodas e impecables. Bien de precio para la calidad. La ubicación es estupenda, ya que está en pleno centro de Alkmaar, sin ser zona peatonal. El servicio muy amable
  • No tiene parking, y hay que ir a aparcar a la estación de tren. El desayuno deberia ser un poco mas variado.
  • (Families with young children)
some are good , some are bad
  • + food is good. the room was comfort.
  • I arrived at night with my family, I asked to pick up because this is my first trip to this city. but they didn't help anything. also, taxi drivers didn't know this hotel. we spent a lot of time to find this hotel.
  • (Other)
There is a lot of room for improvement!!!
  • + Management was friendly and helpful. With your name "Grand Hotel", I had expected much more!
  • No Handsoap in Room. Mirrors smeary, Glass Tables not clean, Not very clean. No Towels on second day. Bad Lighting and some Lamps not working. Toilet room lacks shelving. No Kleenex.
  • (Families with young children)
  • Hotel without air condition.
  • (Travelling alone)
Grand Hotel an outstanding small hotel
  • + Very nice conversion of an old building keeping original beams and some of the original features within the overall renovation. A good clean and very comfortable stay. Also has a lift which is a great + point for smaller hotels in the Netherlands.
  • Parking in Alkmaar in general and near to the Hotel could be a problem
  • (Older couples)
Nice but somewhat surprising
  • + Fashionable hotel, very well located and integrated in the center of the town. Large comfortable room. Bath, toilet and room equipment quite new. Flat screen TV.
  • Bathroom part of the bedroom with no door, which is not necessarily a bad point but rather surprising. Breakfast service a little long: bread arrives at the end of everything, but warm. The street of the hotel hosts the market on Saturdays and no car should remain parked in the street the night before or it is towed away. I discovered it by chance. It should be better advertised at the hotel lobby or by the receptionist upon your arrival.
  • (Travelling alone)
Super Stay
  • + New, Modern & Clean hotel in the centre of Alkmaar. Perfect hotel whilst travelling alone on business.
  • (Other)
So So !
  • + Nice breakfast
  • The hotel had no reservation for the 2 rooms I booked through your website. The bathroom was not seperate from the bedroom.
