Great location, excellent service, beautiful clean rooms. Nothing to fault at all with this hotel. Wifi worked everywhere too. Staff were polite and helpful. Would stay here again for business or leisure.

This is a veerrryy nice hotel. Staff is super friendly. Great food (quality and taste). The rooms were nice and clean. Bathroom as well. In-room service is good and internet (wi-fi) coverage is also good --> in the room I was not encountering problems with it. All in all, great hotel. I will stay here one more time if needed.

We have lived in Utrecht ourselves and new this was one of the best hotels around, but just never had a reason to sleep here. Now we've moved abroad and were visiting family and friends over Christmas and New Years, we thought: yes, finally a reason to book Karel IV! After seeing the standard room, we decided to pay that...

An old monastery/abbey, with history going back further still, converted sympathetically to a hotel with some new build in the grounds. About 10-15 minutes walk from the station and/or town centre, with a canal outside the front - in the process of being extended back along its former course, so will be even better once the works are finished.

The hotel is very grand, except you don't stay in that part - it seems that that is all for show and the restaurants. The rooms are in a separate building that is NOT attached to the main hotel building. This means that if you want to go to breakfast, visit the lobby, etc, you need a coat if it... More

Right in the city of Utrect within walking distance of the station. The only issue is the bar is downstairs! And there is no coffee lounge. The staff are friendly, helpful and efficient, the breakfast is excellent as are the restaurants, although the food is fancy and can be expensive.

This is by far the best hotel in Utrecht. I have stayed her for business as well as for personal trips and this hotel just understands what the purpose is of a hotel: providing a good night sleep in a comfortable ambiance (where by the "stars" just indicate the level of comfort/luxury. Karel V provides for that. Every stay has... More

We were going to a concert at the Tivoli so this was convenient. Very friendly and helpful staff. We didn't eat at the hotel but the rooms were nice and cosy. Just a five minute walk from the train station and shops.

Stayed here on business for about a week. First the good. Staff was super friendly and helpful. I was there on business but as a first timer in the Nederlands I needed a lot of help with taxis, directions, and generally getting around. I has a special network request as well and they helped get that set up quickly. Everyone... More
