Haarlem is a lovely little town, with all the charm of Amsterdam and none of the frenetic craziness! The Carlton Hotel is well positioned for tourists - an easy walk to the shopping area. While this cannot be described as a luxurious or boutique hotel (probably a US three star),it was more than adequate and good value. The rooms (we had an executive room) are a nice size. Our double bed was actually two twins with a foam mattress topper - quite comfortable. The bathroom had recently been redone - it was small, with only a shower, but quite adequate. I loved the free minibar, with alcoholic drinks and snacks included. Breakfast was standard hotel fare - adequate but not exceptional. This hotel seems to be a favorite for large tour groups, so was sometimes very full. They seemed to cope, however. Reception staff were obliging and friendly. We rented their bikes one day - they were in excellent condition and reasonable at €15 per day.
