With its easy access and parking, this hotel is perfect for a weekend getaway by car. The impressive park is a true oasis in the middle of the city, which you can access through the back entrance in a minute's walk--literally! Staff was friendly and helpful, and the room we had was clean, spacious, and tastefully decorated to match the... More

Karel V is a five star and well deserved. In a historic building, it is a quiet oasis in the city with excellent service, wonderful room, delicious food.... Everything was just perfect. I was there on a research workshop, but it suits perfect also for leisure trips. Located in historic downtown, a few minutes from the train station with frequent... More

Having just returned from a business event at this hotel I am glad to report that the hotel staff were exceptional and polite. The Hotel is well located and has lovely grounds. I stayed in the Roman Villa complex and had a couple of good nights sleep although I did encounter significant amount of hair stuck to the wall of... More

Although a grand hotel it has only in the last 20 years become so. It has been transformed in recent years to a 5 star hotel. The reception and the staff were superb and the room large well equipped and nicely decorated. We didn't eat in the restaurant which did seem very highbrow though we never tried it. The hotel...

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

We stayed in this hotel but as we did not knew what to expect we decided to take one night in this hotel. The first impression of service was something above expectations. Friendly staff and helpful, what else would you want. We got our room in the roman wing which we we brought to by the hotel staff. He should... 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
