Travel directions

Did you book a parking space or do you wish to drop off your luggage in the hotel?

Hotel Harmony is situated in a car free zone (pedestrian area) so we advice to put 'Lange Steenstraat' as your last destination in your GPS. From this destination you can use our illustrated map:

  • Follow the tramrails through the 'Lange Steenstraat'.
  • At the end of this street, follow the tram rails further into the 'Geldmunt'. In this street you will see a big castle (Castle of the Counts) on your right and a sign on your left. This sign indicates you can only continue with a permit. Do not worry, as a hotelguest we will take care of this for you at reception.
  • At the end of the 'Geldmunt', turn left onto the 'Kraanlei'. So do not follow the tramrails straight ahead nor turn right because these directions are prohibited. 
  • You can park your car in front of the hotel, at 'Kraanlei 37', and the receptionist will assist you further.

For having entered the car free zone you need a digital permit. This permit is not a physical evidence, but is acknowledged on the basis of your license plate. We arrange this permit when you check in at the front desk upon arrival. It’s not possible to do this in advance, this registration works retroactively.

Please note that acces is prohibited at several places in the city centre. At these places there are cameras, road markings and traffic signs: Ottogracht (Van Beverhoutplein), Botermarkt, Phoenixstraat, Brabantdam-Kuiperskaai and Coupure Hospitaalbrug. (see pics below)

We wish you a pleasant journey to Hotel Harmony.
