We stayed in the purple room which was quite nice and purple. There is not too much room or space to put your stuff, but it is sufficient for 2 people and for a short stay. The steps in the room are a bit tricky. The room would need some better cleaning because there was a lot of dust at... More

We had a few nice lunches in this restaurant in the past so decided to go there again yesterday what proved to be a mistake. This time, unlike in the past we got a very limited menu. The food wad tasteless and the site dish was apparently coming from the fridge as opposed to being freshly prepared. This restaurant is... More

I stayed in the Silver room and everything is Silver! The room was a little dusty, the bed was comfortable, the stairs are very steep and I would advise taking the lift, if you've got luggage. The shower sprays everywhere and be careful of the steps in the room, especially at night! Dinner was amazing, if you've travelllng on business,... More

The food is excellent, the ambiance is fantastic. I do not know any Arab tapas place where the food is this good. Although it is not right in the center of Utrecht, it is worth the trip. Make sure to make a reservation on forehand, since it is alway fully booked in advance. I have'not stayed the night, so I... More

I stayed at the green room. The concept is really cool but there are some things that could be better. The shower is open, meaning that everything around gets completely messed when using it. The light in the room is, at some areas, too "intimate". I guess it is a bit expensive for the value. On the positive side, the... More

Interesting restaurant with a buzzing atmosphere. Very patient and helpful staff as most customers are experimenting. A little under spiced but may be for local clientele tastes. Range of Mezze from various country traditions. Serves alcohol and traditional teas too. Favourite is the fennel soup. Ned to book table even mid week. Did not stay so can't comment.

Let me start by saying that as a restaurant Badhu is fantastic and did not disappoint, it's mezze dishes were both tasty and great value. We stayed 2 nights in the red room in July. The room itself is very basic but clean, with a lovely window seat and fresh towels in the morning. There was tea and coffee in... More

Authentic Arabic, Lebanese, Maroccan kitchen; mainly soups and mezze. Excellent taste and surprising mixes of ingredients. Both inside ad outside a good athmosphere. Unfortunately the Maroccan beer was not available. We didn't sleep over here, but my colleagues did and where quite enthusiastic.

Stayed here one day in July. We reserved the golden room but at check-in it turned out that room was double booked so we were given the white room. Staff gave us a key, waved us to the stairs and that was it. Not much service here because they're to busy running the downstairs restaurant and bar. The room was... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and liked the hotel. Yes, it's a little quirky, but it's a small hotel and they're trying to be different. The staff are super lovely and friendly. We were gutted that we didn't eat in the restaurant as we have heard from the locals that they do good middle eastern food.
