We have stayed with friends during a weekend and we were not disappointed. The hotel is little bit further from the centre of the city, but that's nothing public transport or taxi could not solve. The rooms were clean with very comfortable beds, nice bathroom having shower and also bath tub. Our room had balcony with nice view to small... More

The Carlton President in Utrecht, is about 50km from Amsterdam. It is a low rise hotel with 3 floors. We stayed for 2 nights as part of a tour group. Our room was on the top floor and although there are 2 lifts, only one of them has access. This caused a slight delay when we checked in, as everyone... More

I was travelling on business which can quite often be very lonely. I have stayed in many bland impersonal hotels. This was very much an exception, from the welcome of the receptionist to the unique barman Frank I was made to feel a very valued customer. The free shuttle bus got me to the office without any trouble. After checking... More

I was traveling with a group of students and we stayed only one night. But that night was very good and I was hoping we could stay more, but we had to go to our next location. Bedroom was very big and bed was soft, it was like I slept on the clouds. Everything was clean and tidy. The staff... More

We liked the hotel, no real complaints, my review is solely to give a realistic impression. We got upgraded to an executive room, which was not exceptionally 'executive'. The bed was supposed to be king, but was about 140cm at most (but VERY comfy, I must say). Mini bar was included, which consisted of wine, soft drinks and liquor and... More

stayed for business, not very central for tourists I suppose, but there is a direct bus right to the central rail station. Rooms are OK, bed is to soft for my taste, and air conditioner way to loud (cannot sleep with it turned ON). Food was good, for both dinner and breakfast.

Dear Tibor, Thank you very much for your review. It is very much appreciated! Next to the new special beds we also acommodated some rooms with very firm matrasses. During your next visite we can make sure you will get one of these rooms. Hope to see you soon back at the hotel. Best regards, Bart Blikman More

I've been in this hotel just one night. I did not pick it myself, it was booked by the organization for which I was working. I traveled with my husband and we had a lovely double room.

The exterior of the hotel is not very appealing. It is located just across the industry area of Utrecht where trucks and cars pass by all the time. It has a huge parking though. Check-In was fair; the lady at Check-Out was super friendly. She asked if we enjoyed our stay and provided information about acitivities in Utrecht which is... More
