The room was spacious and overlooked the lovely garden. We made use of the pool, jacuzzi and sauna-which were a real treat for tired travellers. The price for the room was reasonable, booked at a discounted rate, and parking was cheap in comparison to elsewhere in the city. The location is excellent and easy to find.

.... one of the best hotels in Utrecht and believe me: I have seen them all ! The hotel is not the cheapest but good value for your money. Rooms are clean and in most cases the rooms I had had been very comfortable in size and equipment. Very nice SPA center but running outside at the canal is nice... More

Stayed at the hotel on a recent business trip. Great location near to restaurants and bars and a nice walk from the train station. I stayed in a double room which was large, stunning and luxurious (will try to attach photos). PROs: The bed was very soft and heavenly, the rainforest-style shower was so refreshing, toiletries were delightful, this place... More

Stayed at the hotel for a weekend break - room was a very generous size and very comfortable. Overall decor of the hotel is classic, but feels a bit like a hospital in parts. However the grounds are very lush and spacious and the hotel is within easy walking distance of the city centre. The breakfast is definitely worth having,... More

A lovely hotel set in spacious and quiet grounds and yet in the city centre. The rooms are a good size and well-equipped. But what stands out is the friendliness of the staff and the excellent service. I arrived after a minor accident at Schipol and my trousers were covered in blood. Amazingly, the night concierge manage to wash the... More

I had stayed at the hotel during a recent business trip to Utrecht, and i really enjoyed staying there for a couple of days. The location was nice (near to the train station), and the rooms were really spacious. The breakfast was good, and the room service was also supportive. Definitely recommended.

Hotel Karel V is a lovely hotel a stone's throw from the centre of Utrecht. Unfortunately I was on business and only stayed the one night but the hotel was clean, nicely decorated. The bathroom was of a high standard and the beds comfortable. The hotel bar was a big understocked (i.e. only had one brand of gin) but overall... More

In general this hotel and it's stuff were very very good. Was very clean all the building (reception, breakfast area, rooms, garden etc). It had a very big and beautiful garden. But, 3 things were not correct for my opinion. The major was that when we arrived and when we checked out the stuff in the reception didn't helped us... More

Wonderful location, high class hotel. On walking distance of shopping area and restaurants, really in teh center of Utrecht. The hotel has two evry good restaurants, one more or less informal (Brasserie Goeie Louisa) and a top class (Karel V). Really good food!
