“Great hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

Stayed this weekend with my Husband and our 3 children while visiting family in Utrecht . Great hotel , friendly helpful staff . Leisure facilities and pool were brilliant for the children . Breakfast was the only meal we ate at the hotel and it was more than adequate with a good selection of hot and cold food . Rooms were of a high standard and very clean . Particularly good for a family of 5 allocating us 2 rooms with an interconnecting door which is something we have struggled to get at many European hotels in the past . Overall a really pleasant visit and I would recommend this hotel as great value for money with excellent staff and facilities . Nearly forgot , really comfy beds !

Can't fault this hotel really. Good facilities, comfortable, clean rooms, good breakfast.
Only small issues: bit of modernisation would be good - plus the piped music on the terrace sometimes starts at 6.30am; finished at 11.30 - seems pointless and is annoying if your room faces onto terrace.

Room Tip: Ask for room at the back of the building, at the end of a corridor to reduce traffic outside.

Stayed at this hotel for One Night with our group. Check In was quick and the room keys were ready on arrival. Good Staff. Good Rooms and Bathrooms. Nice Breakfast. Free Internet Wi-Fi in the hotel as well as the Business Center. Although the Hotel is on the High Way there is no disturbance. Recommend this Hotel.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

We stayed at this hotel at the beginning of August for one night. It was very easy to reach from Utrecht Central by catching the No. 37 bus from the bus station Zuid to Zonnebaan. Then it was just a 2 minute walk. The room was very nice and the bed had a mattress topper and was very comfortable. The food at the restaurant was very expensive. It was 16.50 euro for an adult spaghetti bolognese and a childs portion half the size was 12.50. Breakfast was very busy even at 7:30 in the morning. The cooked breakfast only consisted of eggs, sausage and bacon. Our room was very noisy from the constant talking in the room next door to the kangaroos (people jumping about) passing the room late at night. There was a small jacuzzi which was very eloquently decorated, however our relaxion in this area was spoilt by children trying to swim and jump into it thinking it was a swimming pool! We thought this was quite dangerous as the children was sliding along the top of the jacuzzi as though they were seals.

Dear SNEeve,

Thank you very much for taking the time to review Carlton President.

I’m very sorry to hear that your overnight stay was disturbed by the guest of the adjacent room.

If you would decide to visit us next time I will make sure that we will provide you with a more quite room on a different floor.

Thank you for the compliments regarding the room and it’s facilities.

Hopefully we can meet in person next time you visit Utrecht.

Best regards,

A friendly hotel where nothing is too much trouble.
if there is something that is not on the menu. they are more than happy to help.
The bar is a relaxing, funny and welcoming place. Frank, the barman, only has to meet you once and then knows you by name and what you want.
A great stay and highly recommended.

We stayed here on a weekend in April as we had to attend a wedding in the neighborhood.
I had stayed here before a few years ago for business and that's what the hotel is also mainly known for. It's a great conference hotel. They have all the facilities you need.
But one thing I certainly found back staying here now as a couple on leisure was their warm hospitality and friendly service. Everything is possible, you just need to ask. We were in a rush needing to make it in time for the wedding but reception, housekeeping and room service were right there for us to make it happen. Thanks to a great team!
If you are looking for a place to stay, business or leisure, try the Carlton President.
By the way, do not miss out on the wonderful breakfast in the morning, on a sunny day you can even take it outside on the terrace!
