While I live in Texas, I am from, and my family still lives in the western part of Harlem. Therefore, hotels in Bloemendaal are the closest and most convenient available.
While Hotel Bleecker has been open for a few years, this was my first trip to the area that offered me the opportunity to check out the accommodations. My experience was excellent in every aspect. The hotel is small for which I have a personal preference over the 500-room "tower flats". This is not good or bad overall, but was good for me. The room was fairly large and had a sizable desktop, which accommodated my working hours there. The beds were comfortable, the shower was roomy and modern, and the overall hotel space was very clean.
The staff were helpful with all common and special requests I made of them. Overall a wonderful experience. For my next trip to the area I will stay there again, and I can solidly recommend it to anyone who is planning to stay in the area for business or for pleasure.
