The only thing that wasn't perfect was the bubble bath: it wouldn't bubble. But the tub filled quickly and the modern hotel was worth recommending. Good box-spring beds, and a great breakfast buffet. The restaurant is huge, as usual with the hotel/restaurant chain, but modern and didn't feel like a ballroom once we sat at our table. I was surprised... More

Stayed here last January during a dive show in the neighbouring exhibition center. Got a good deal because of attending. Rooms are spacious and have some great views when you are high up. Food in the restaurant was excellent but a little expensive. Close to the exhibition center that made it a perfect choice, next year I will stay here... More

Stayed here several times for business in Houten. It is a comfortable hotel with spacious rooms and baths. Has a breakfast buffet which is quite nice and a decent restaurant and a nice bar. Staff is very accommodating. Utrecht is close by, so easy to get there for sight seeing and restaurants. Only draw back is no fitness center.

We stayed here last week and were really pleased with the hotel. Quick and easy check in. My room was on the 7th floor, nice and quiet and spotlessly clean. The bathroom was good size with separate walk-in shower with fixed drench and hand heads. Big spa bath and nice sink area with magnifying mirror and fixed hairdryer. Shower gels... More

The hotel is huge tower visible for long distance. I was on a business trip in Netherlands without a car. The location was terrible, as there is nothing close to the hotel. There are no restaurants, no shops, nothing. The room was spacious and clean, and there was quite a view over the countryside. Breakfast was really good with a... More

Having stayed numerous times for work the hotel always delivers good value and very good service. The hotel is very clean with lots of attentive staff. There is a restaurant and bar that serve good food, even if the bar menu doesn't change. The rooms are generous and well appointed. The addition of a fitness centre must be the only... More

We stayed the night after a wedding in the neighbourhood. Spacious decent room with a convenient bathroom. Slightly noisy. Surroundings are not so nice but it is conveniently locaties close to Utrecht. Breakfast is more than excellent with ample choice. Staff is adequate. Good value for money.

Stayed here for business and it's a really good hotel. Clean with big rooms close the both the highway and Utrecht. Breakfast has most to service any wants and needs. Restaurant for dinner also has a good selection of choices. Service during dinner could be a little faster, were you find yourself wanting to orders. But still minor details during... More

The hotel looks nice and the rooms look nice. However, there was a buzzing sound in my room the whole night and I couldn't sleep. I finally called down at 4 a.m. and no one came to my room. I called again at 4:45 a.m. and they said they didn't hear anything wrong. I asked how that could be when... More

The hotel is fine, with big room, nice furniture and comfortable bed. But unfortunately my room was pretty noisy. Something like a fun was continuously running, even during the night. And this was unfortunately pretty uncomfortable. A part it good hotel. But this surrounding noise cannot be considered a detail and drop down my rate.
