We need to make reservations soon. Does anyone have any Bed & Breakfast suggestions for Harleem or Lisse? I checked out the Paula B&B website, it looked nice, but we are very allergic to cats. Appreciate your help.

Haarlem Holland B&B Guest Comments - Bot B&B Homepage
Bot Haarlem B&B Guest comments from tourist who visited our Dutch home in Holland.

But i do believe there are no rooms with bath/WC in the room - shared only but there are three i think for four rooms.

Hanna Bot is handling things in the winter, while her brother, who also lives there, 'is wintering in Brazil' as Hanna said.

Bot Bed & Breakfast; 40 Ramsingel, Haarlem - just a block off the end of the pedestrian shopping zone - a tad less than a mile from the train station - if coming from Schiphol Airport then the 300 bus stops really close - easy enough to drive to as well - on the south end of the town centre. On a canal and the breakfast room has a view of the canal. Great breakfast - Hanna is a really neat person as well. There is a dog but i did not see a cat and if there had been one i would have reacted immediately due to my cat alergy.

Okay I've been doing more research... Would love feedback on the following cities as a base: Haarlem, Leiden, or Lisse. We will only have 2-3 nights and Amsterdam is too big to consider now. If you are familiar with these cities tell us what you think and please recommend a Bed & Breakfast and any of your favorite restaurants. A sincere thanks for your assistance.

Talked with a travel buddy yesterday and he said I may already be too late to book near the tulips in April. Any suggestions would be appreciated for Haarlem, Lisse, or Leiden B&Bs. Thanks again.

For those who are not affected by cats here is a B&B in Hillegom, just two miles from Keukenhof. http://www.station152.nl. I might add that cats are pretty much ubiquitous in Holland.

Your other duplicate post is not helpful.

What is wrong with Palenque's recommendation for the Bot B&B? It is in an excellent location.

Have you tried to Google B&B for Haarlem, Lisse, Leiden?

spaarne's Hillegom B&B reference is right in the heart of the flower fields! And it is a sweet tiptoe thru the tulips (on paths - don't dare enter the flower fields themselves) a few miles to the Keukenhof. The Hillegom train station is obviously right by the B&B, which could interest me as well since it is right by a train station (i presume)
