When the guilder was still legal tender in the Netherlands, the maker of the currency - JOH. Enschedé - was named on all bank notes. The building in which Hotel Restaurant ML is housed was formerly the Enschedé family home. For centuries the printing-office and type foundry were also active there. Among other things, the typefaces with which the notes were printed, were made here. During the remodelling, the architect successfully managed to preserve the authenticity of this historic building whilst at the same time creating a special hotel. The rooms are stylish and modern. Some still have original decorations and ornaments.
The excellent hotel restaurant serves modern French cuisine using seasonal ingredients. The restaurant is located in the former living room of the Enschedé family and in the sun lounge on the old inner courtyard.
The hotel is situated in the centre of Haarlem, on the beautiful, authentic Klokhuisplein. In the historic inner city you will find centuries-old buildings, museums and attractive shops.
Making a feast out of every dinner, that’s the point at the restaurant. The restaurant is partly situated in the old inner court of the former Joh. Enschedé premises and partly in the old style rooms. With dedication and a great deal of enjoyment chefs Mark Gratama and Kevin Kion and their co-workers prepare a surprising five- or six-courses menu. In addition there are seasonal dishes. And of course you can choose very beautiful wines. The restaurant also caters, in a separate room, for private dinner parties.
The restaurant is opened from Tuesday through Saturday from 18.00h. On Sunday and Monday the restaurant is closed.
The terrace is located on the Klokhuisplein Square with 300 seats, as part of the hotel’s Bistro. It is known as one of the most pretty terrace's of Haarlem.
The ML Hotel is located on the picturesque Klokhuisplein Square in the old city centre of Haarlem. The historical inner city has many monuments, museums and typical Dutch courtyards; ’hofjes’. The oldest ’hofje’ in the country , the Bakernesser Hofje, is at the rear of the hotel. The hotel provides a map of the most interesting monuments.
