Very conveniently located with very friendly staff. Rooms are comfy, facilities are great. Food was also delicious. Wifi also reliable. Interesting old building to explore. Room is spacious. The style of the decor isn't really my style, but it's good considering that the style matches the old historical building (very classic look). Don't get me wrong, the hotel is modern,... More

Rooms are nice and big in the main house or in the new building. Cellar bar is fine, bistro is not my choice, no athmo. Our bed had a worn out mattress, but beside that service was very helpful, nice breakfast and great location.

The hotel is very nice and with a unique design and located in a quiet area very close to the beautiful Utrecht city center and many restaurants and shopping. Hotel is very old with simple over utilized furniture. The bed’s matrices are completely uncomfortable and annoying during sleep. Hotel’s staff were very friendly and helpful.

I stayed here a few times over the years. The hotel has a special character and style. I found the reception staff very informative, friendly and helpful. The morning shift concierge is a superb representation of the charm and individual character of the hotel. The hotel's interior and the gardens are historically interesting and memorable, breaking the modern tradition of... More

A couple of years a go I had a nice stay in one of the 'historical' rooms of the Karel V hotel. Some months ago, I enjoyed a most wonderful light lunch in their brasserie (though I was in a hurry (no problem to their staff), their food and service deserve to take time to be fully enjoyed). This past... More

The location of the Karel V is wonderful and it has a beautiful courtyard. The main building is also very impressive. The staff are excellent. I have stayed here repeatedly over the past few years, both in the main building and in the so-called Roman building. The rooms are a nice size and should be comfortable, but I have the... More

As I read the other reviews, I can't help but wonder if they are referring to the same place. I stayed in the Roman Wing - it was terrible! It's a run down 1960's style building that reminded me of my college dorm, and not in a good way. The room was tiny and run down The bed was tiny... More

Good location, spacious room, professional staff, quite good food in restaurant. I’m visiting Utrecht quite often and usually prefer to stay in Amsterdam, as it is much more live place and connection to Utrecht is good. Nevertheless when staying in Utrecht I rate Karel V as the best hotel in town.

Stayed here a lot of times for work. Simply an excellent hotel, set in an impressive building. The staff are great, as is the atmosphere of the hotel. Very nice rooms, easy parking, and excellent breakfast.
