I had to be in Utrecht just for two days for business and the Carlton President was selected for its convenient location within walking distance of the work-place. However, in addition it turned out to be extremely comfortable with well-appointed rooms both for work and sleep. In addition it has a wonderful indoor / outdoor restaurant that serves you at...

Having by now stayed in many of the various Utrecht hotels we decided that rather than just settle with the Mitland(by far the best thus far), we would venture a little further out of town and try the President. We had hired a car at Schipol and were thus less reliant on Utrechts admittedly fabulous public transport system and had... More

Ive been actually living to this hotel for almost a year. I can say only this "Excellent". Everything is exceptional, the staff, the menu (and believe me i had the chance to taste everything during one year accomodation)..the only bad thing you could say about it is the location - outside Utrecht. But that has some advantages too: clean air... More

Stayed for two nights and the overall impression is that the accommodation is tired and dated and ready for an update. It is a more traditional style hotel. The outside seating area was the best part. Breakfast was adequate but lacked the choice offered in many hotels in this range. Service was polite but often slow. We had booked a... More

Good hotel and good service. Hotel is reachable with public transport in 15-20 minutes from central train station. Room are very quietly. Free wifi permits to have a fast connection. Bar in the hotel can be used to have a nice after-dinner.

This is really a great hotel, but my experience of it was too inconsistent. I had a great burger the first three evenings, great bun, loads of salad, cooked well... and the next evening, the exact same burger was now horrible, stale bun, no salad.

Great hotel with comfortable rooms. Friendly staff, fabulous breakfasts and easy train connections to Amsterdam and Utrecht. Quiet during the weekdays but it may be get a little bit busier outside over the weekend. Overall it's a great place to stay in. Would recommend.

Use this Hotel fairly often on Business trips. Always friendly and efficient - a warm welcome is assured. Also the bar manager is a master at creating a good atmosphere and a relaxed end to a working day

Friendly and helpful staff, but dirty restaurant and very soft beds... if you like a soft bed it's perfect, but if you like a harder one you won't sleep for sure. I don't understand why hotels go for the extremes when it comes to beds... in this way 50% of your guests won't sleep at all.

I travel every week throughout Europe for business. This was by far my best hotel experience ever. The staff are simply magnificent. Warm, genuinely friendly and extremely helpful. They want to go that extra mile and a half to make your stay pleasant. Frank the barman is a legend.
