We stayed in this hotel after a wedding party. Although we live in Utrecht, we wanted to treat ourselves and stay in town, close to our party venue. Karel V is the only 5 star hotel in Utrecht, it's conveniently located in the city centre, close to the Canals. The decoration of the hotel is rather classic and the rooms... More

This is a historical complex of charming buildings which surround an internal courtyard. Rooms are big, well furnished and big rwindows allow so much light to enter. One more favourable point - considering the Duch humid/cold weather most part of the year - is that heating system works incredibly well in the rooms! Breakfast was assorted and tasty. It's maybe...

We had a two night weekend stay in a classic room in the Roman wing. The hotel is an easy walk from the Utrecht Centraal station and the hotel website provides helpful directions to reach it from there. The hotel is an attractive mix of buildings, old and new. We stayed in the new Roman wing, and had a very... More

Although nothing appears to need renovating, the hotel is just old. Rooms are clean and the hotel is meticulously cared for. Staff is very friendly, breakfast is good, grounds are nice, but the rooms (at least my room...433) was TINY, even for European standards. A/C is available, but even when left at full blast for 5 full days, the room... More

I stayed at the Grand Hotel for a week pretty much and would love to go back soon. Its not one of those places you get tired of anytime soon. Utrecht in itself is a lovely city and the staff and surroundings of the hotel added to the excellent experience. It is reasonably priced for a Grand Hotel and the... More

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
