“Loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014

This hotel is just perfect: the rooms are large and loved the decor, bathroom is super up to date, everything is clean and looks new, loved the rituals bath items. Windows are large, bed was comfy, really I have to say it was an exceptional room for Dutch standards, reminded me of US rooms. Hotel itself has a cosy restaurant and bar/diner where we ate the house salad which was delicious. Location is absolutely perfect, super close to all the bars and cute little streets with lots of nice shops. Utrecht is definitely a great city!

We spent three nights at the Court Hotel and found it to be very comfortable and spacious. Plenty of towels and hot water and a nice quiet room with a view of a garden area in back. We had Al Capone painted on our wall which was amusing. The breakfast was great and our group enjoyed a delicious dinner there our first night. I would definitely book this hotel again.

I stayed here while visiting friends for a few days who live just off the Domplein; this hotel was the closest and for such a central location, the rate (booked through a third party booking site) was surprisingly reasonable.

Getting to the hotel is pretty straightforward from Utrecht's station - either a quick cab ride, or a 15 minute walk. I've been to Utrecht before so knew the way, but it's very simple for any newcomers. Check-in was friendly, quick and painless, and I was given a room on the third floor.

The room was very spacious, cool and calm. Bathroom was a good size too, with a nice big shower (although the temperature of the shower would vary while on... a minor gripe but not really a big issue at all). The bed was enormous, and while a little softer to what I'd generally prefer, was perfectly comfortable for the few nights I stayed. It took me a while to locate the mini bar on the one side of the main wall unit that also holds the TV, but found it well stocked and fairly reasonably priced for a hotel mini bar.

Apart from the comfort of the hotel itself, the best thing about it is the location; Utrecht's city centre is pretty small and everything is within a short walking distance. You have a huge choice of pubs, restaurants, clubs, and gorgeous canals within a stone's throw. The market is nearby too, if you want to tuck into some Dutch specialities like raw herring (a traditional hangover cure!) and freshly made stroopwafels. The street that the hotel is on is mostly very quiet, with the majority of noise simply being the rickety sound of bicycles going past.

I didn't eat at the hotel at all so can't comment on the food. Upon check out you'll be charged a city tax, which in my case was about 10 Euro.

I'll be visiting my friends again later this year sometime and will definitely stay here again.

Great location right in the center of town. Loved the outdoor seating. Great breakfast buffet. Super staff. Great dinner in the bar. Try the French Fries! Huge room with spacious bathroom. Really enjoyed the stay.

The Court hotel is ideally situated in the historic centre of Utrecht, with basically all interesting sites and things to do within walking distance. The rooms are light, spacious, modern and very comfortable with lots of cupboard space. Excellent bed and shower. Staff is friendly and helpful (they rang me to tell me i had left a pair of sunglasses behind). Nice bar and resto, good breakfast.

Make sure you get a room at the back of the hotel as Utrecht's famous Dom tower chimes every 15 minutes - all night and you do not hear that at the back.
One small criticism: the entrance and reception look a little shoddy: the carpet looks dirty and the reception is very small and looks cheap. Does not reflect the quality of the rooms.

Went to Utrecht on business/confrence at Jaarbeurs. Happy we chise this hotel in the middle of utrecht rather than hotels around inpersonal jaarbeurs.

Within nice walking distance to jaarbeurs. Nice breakfast, great rooms and an excellent bar.

Highly recommended for business and pleasure

The hotel was clean and tidy. The only issue I had with the hotel was its location which is in the centre of Utrecht on a cobbled street. Which means it is noisy a lot of the time, so my sleep was not great, and my room was on the 3rd floor. You could also hear other guests opening and banging their bed room doors.Also the wifi connection was limited with it dropping out after 10pm. If I was staying for a weekend in Utrecht it would be a fine hotel but did not really met my business need
