Droste

I’m a private room at the Most Local Boutique Hostel in Haarlem. I have space for five guests with one double bed and three single beds. I’m a perfect room for a family. My bathroom has a shower, a sink and a toilet. You have direct access to the glass covered and very sunny patio.

Enjoy an a la carte breakfast in my restaurant, where I also serve lunch, dinner and some local snacks.

Or come and taste some Haarlem-made beers at my bar and sit on my sunny patio. I will open the glass roof of my patio when the weather is nice enough or close it, so that you can still sit outside, even when it rains.

Hello I’m a biscuit baker from Haarlem that became a chocolate manufacturer. Before I knew it my delicious chocolate pastilles were popular all over the world. I opened my first chocolate factory in Haarlem, right next to the river Spaarne. Here I produced cacao powder and chocolates. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory had nothing on me. Did you know chocolate milk has healing qualities? That’s why I put a nurse on my cans of cacao powder. If you take a closer look at one of these cans you will see that the nurse is carrying the exact same can on her tray. This creates a never-ending image. This is called the Droste-effect. M.C. Escher used this effect in his art and even went a step further by adding rounded lines and making different worlds blend into each other this way. You’ll find the Droste-effect in this room, can you spot it?

Enjoying your private room in Haarlem? If you would like I can give you some tips on all the best local places in Haarlem to show you why I love this city so much. I know Haarlem like the back of my hand and will tell you all about my personal favorites. Wether it’s a local restaurant, a small boutique shop, a new cocktail bar or a must-see museum, I’ve got you. Enjoy!
