This hotel was nice and the rooms weren't too basic. You would never choose the location if you were on a leisure trio (on a business park with only one early closing restaurant anywhere near) , but it served well for us to stay whilst my dad had an operation in the annatomie medical centre. The hotel really could do... More

Second time here - and as before, rooms very good, breakfast very good, parking very good, public transport into town very good. Staff very good. In fact all good. Cute and bijou it is not; in the centre it is not. Efficient and quiet it is.

This hotel is in the middle of nowhere. No ATM, no selection of nearby restaurants, nothing. For business travelers who travel lightly I don't carry shampoo conditioner or lotion. This place has no conditioner and no lotion, not even washcloths! If you want these things you need to purchase them. I would expect at least that from a hotel. When... More

When you arrive after a long day of work at your hotel, you hope for a smooth check-in. That I got, after waiting 10 minutes at the reception. The lady was alone and serving bar and reception at the same time. Just before I got in a group of 10 ordered drinks, so I had to wait. The room was... More

Once I'd found this hotel, tucked away on the outskirts of town, everything was perfect. The staff were helpful and obliging, immediately offering a change of room (and a bar voucher for the inconvenience) when my TV had a problem. The room was very comfortable and just what I needed between two busy working days. The free, covered car park... More

No lunch/dinner options. But they have menu so you can order food. You can even eat youre ordered food in the breakfastrestaurant. The reception can hand... More

We stayed for 2 nights in August and had a good trip in Utrecht. This hotel is out of town but there is a very good bus service that takes you right into the middle of the train station so don't be put off. At the weekend the business area was shut down so it was very, very quiet. The... More

One of the best places me and my husband have stayed!!! We spent a week here in Feb this year. Whilst not in the city it's located in a great central position within the Netherlands enabling you to easily visit anywhere in the country within about an hours drive. Awesome relaxed hotel with lovely decor, really friendly staff who can't... More

This is one of the nicest HI Express hotels that I know. It is to the level of regular Holiday Inns with a touch of friendlies of the stuff working there. It is a bit away from the center (on the Highway ring), but it is perfect choice for the business. The parking is big and covered, and I got... More
