Mattresses were not very stable flat / level; a bit bumpy, weird... Bathroom with bath was modern and very convenient. All in all I had expected...

The location of this hotel is excellent, at walking distance of all the shopping streets, musea and largest park in Haarlem. The hotel is good value for money given the location, decent rooms and friendly staff. Would definitely come back
