“Value Accomodation in Utrecht”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Stayed here one night to attend a nearby beer tasting. Hotel was modern and inviting with a friendly staff and ample free parking. The room was typical size for Europe with a comfy bed and free wi-fi. Didn't visit Utrecht but it did seem a bit outside the center. Breakfast was expensive so we passed on that and didn't use the restaurant or bar. A great value for the price we paid.

Thank you very much for you kind review. You can indeed get to the centre easily with the tram or the bus. However what is particularly nice to do, is to walk from the hotel via a street that runs along a pretty canal with houseboats, impressive buildings and even a windmill, very Dutch
Hoping to welcome you again in Utrecht
Kind regards

If you have a time and to travel by rain you can choose this Hotel in Utrecht. Nice city hotel in this town. But little bit far away from city center. No more expectation from hotel if stay other Ibis Hotels. Small room but clean. Breakfast so beautiful with Dutch Cheese. Quiet location and people are nice. If you have less money for two person it good to stay 96 Euro for weekend. But you have to follow up always sale on internet before checking.

Room Tip: Doesn't matter. Every room good. If you stay in week days you can prefer room out of street side...

I stayed overnight with friends for a football match. The hotel is very easy to find by road and there was ample parking at the back. As is common in the Netherlands, the receptionist spoke excellent English. She was very welcoming and checked us in efficiently. Having established our plans (into Utrecht for the afternoon, then train to Amsterdam for the match) she furnished us with a map and showed us how to get to the station and the town centre. She thoughtfully organised twin rooms with separate beds, which we 4 lads appreciated! She was also thoughtful in offering us two "keys" (ie swipe cards) and also offered us breakfast.

The hotel is well located - it is less than half a mile or so from the A2 motorway. It's a short tram ride into town, but we elected to walk - we took a very pleasant 20 minute leisurely and picturesque stroll alongside the canal to Utrecht Centraal Station (from where it's a 15 minute train ride to Amsterdam, 4 trains an hour) and on walking through the station you find yourself in the retail centre of the city.

The hotel is modern, and the rooms were quite small, but spotlessly clean. The beds were very comfortable, and the rooms were well lit - not always the case in the Netherlands, where there seems to be a tendency for gloomy rooms, dark decoration and dim lighting. There was a TV which we didn't use, but it had a comprehensive channel list. The window had both a blind and curtains, so it was possible to get a thorough blackout if necessary. There was no wardrobe as such, but there was a clothes rail in a little alcove in the corner with plenty of hanging space. I spotted two electrical outlets, which is handy if there are two of you and both want to charge their phones, or you want to charge a phone whilst running a laptop. These are conveniently placed next to the desk (which is more of a shelf, but big enough to work on if visiting on business) but also handy for the bed if you use your mobile as an alarm. A single upright chair is provided for the desk, and there is a padded seat area next to the bed. There are no tea or coffee making facilities, but I wouldn't mark the hotel down for this as it is usual for hotels in the Netherlands in my experience.

The shower room (no bath) was also spotlessly clean, there were good supplies of shower gel/shampoo in squeeze bottles by the shower and by the handbasin, and there was a built-in hairdryer.

We visited the bar in the evening - it's open until 0100 but we didn't get back until 0030 so weren't in there long - long enough, however, to note that it too was bright and clean and welcoming, and the barman was pleasant and friendly.

Breakfast was €14.00 each. This was buffet style, and you can just help yourself to what you want. A full English is provided - the usual Continental interpretation of a full English, that is - small rashers of sweet cure bacon, little cocktail sausages (nice tasty ones) and scrambled eggs, and mushrooms were also provided. I enjoyed it, I quite like Continental full English breakfasts, but you have to accept they aren't the same as the ones we get in England! There was also a good range of cold meats and cheeses, croissants, pain au raisin and sweet pastries, a variety of breads and a toaster that (unusually for a hotel) actually toasted bread properly! There were the usual spreads in little pots, as well as chocolate sprinkles (very Dutch). Also, cereals, very decent machine coffee, fruit juices and that peculiar sour buttermilk (karnemelk) that seems so popular in the Netherlands. We were all very happy with it and it set us up for the day.

This is a budget hotel and it might be a little compact for an extended stay, but my overall impression was that for a few days it offers everything you need, the service was excellent, everything was clean and well maintained, and we all felt it was excellent value for money.

Me and my family came to this gotel for wekend and just wanted to visit Amsterdam. Everything was fine, unless the administrator of this hotel decided to take from my credit card 456 euros for two rooms for two nights instead of 284 euros. More than that, when we just came to hotel and were doing registration he took money for breakfast from my bank account, but in the morning we weren't in the list! So I had to pay for that breakfast by cash. Wonderful isn't it? When I told about all those situation to another administrator, she told me "no problem!". She told me that she'll tak another 284 euros and return me all previous payments (about 456 euros). And you know what? today, on the 25.10.12 Another 284 euros has been taken from my bank account but I still hadn't recieved anithing back! So, for now, it's look like I have payed for two rooms for two night 741 euros. You really think its ok? Your company took from me 456 euros just for nothing and doesn't want return them to me! i really dissapointed...
