Stayed here as a couple on a stopover for just one night. We hadn't planned to visit Utrecht but the very expensive accommodation in Amsterdam that weekend forced us to change our plans. So pleased we did! Utrecht is a great place and only half an hour or so from Schipol Airport. Highly recommended as it has much that Amsterdam... More

Our hotel room was very spacious, clean and quiet.The staff is very pleasant and professional. It is centrally located, you can walk to many restaurants and to the train station. The only con is the front desk is not knowledgeable about good restaurants in the area and the food at the Hotel is not consistent. Our first dinner was nice... More

Due to work reasons I had to spent almost 6 months in the hotel and I only have good things to say. The staff was very friendly, the hotel was quiet, relaxing and the rooms were big (which is very important when it becomes your second home). To me it is by far the best hotel in Utrecht.

Great stay in this very nice hotel, old building that has been updated with style. Standard bedroom felt anything but standard, food excellent, service helpful, surroundings beautiful. Utrecht is wonderful and the hotel is in the heart. Don't bother with the front (major rebuilding roadworks in progress) instead have a drink in the rear courtyard before wondering out into the...

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...
