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

This is the second year that my boys and I have visited this hotel while attending a week long international training camp at FC Utrecht Soccer Academy. My boys along with 18 other players were treated with kindness and respect. We enjoyed the fabulous breakfast display every morning as well as the catered dinners each night (food was good!). The...

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. I have basically only positive things to say about this hotel: the personnel is helpful and extremely kind and professional, the structure is... More

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

Dear Sally, Thank you very much for taking the time to write your review. Your opinion is very valuable for us. Your tour operator organized a continental breakfast for the whole group. This was not by our choice unfortunately. The other buffet in the other restaurant was an American breakfast buffet. This was also available for just a small supplement.... More

We had a one night stay whilst passing through Utrecht and chose the hotel because of the free parking. The receptionist was the best I have ever come across. She was friendly, very thorough in the information she provided not only about the hotel but also about getting into Utrecht which was very easily done by bus which stopped near... More

The most important thing is that this is a very clean hotel where the staff are extremely friendly and courteous. Breakfast was very nice with proper orange juice not some concentrate diluted nonsense. There was a good variety of fruit and bread. The only downside to the hotel is that it is located some distance form the centre of Utrecht... More

I have used this hotel many times in the past. I returned a few weeks ago after not visiting for two months. It was just like I had never been away. The staff were fantastic, the food great and you will be asleep before your head hits the pillow. The beds are that comfortable. Look forward to returning next week.... More
