I stayed here while attending a conference at the University. It was one of the hotels arranged by the conference, and at the conference rate it was a good deal; I don't know what the normal rates are like. The setting was pretty. I had a room facing the lake, with a little patio outside a sliding door. The drawback to that was that noise from people on the terrace (where breakfast is served) could be heard in the room, plus it meant the room wasn't very private feeling, though that's what curtains are for. I was worried about noise but it did not prove to be a problem, as people typically did not linger on the patio late at night and by the time people were going out there to eat breakfast I was getting up anyway.
The facilities were all clean and pleasant and the room was an adequate size. The staff were friendly and, as is common in the Netherlands, all spoke English comfortably and were not fazed by speaking it to me (someone who speaks no Dutch).
Probably the best part was the breakfast, which included champagne along with the usual array of breakfast foods. My husband and I enjoyed having breakfast on the terrace looking out at the lake.
It is not located in the city and was not near my conference, but the bus stop is a short walk and they gave me instructions in English about how to get to the bus stop and how to return to the stop on the bus lines. I did not find traveling to the city a problem. The city center can also be walked to if you do not mind a half hour's walk.
I would recommend the Hotel Mitland to other travelers to Utrecht and would stay there again if I returned.
