I've stayed in many budget hotels including a number of Holiday Inn Express (my preferred choice). This place took me by surprise however. For a start, prices were very cheap even for the budget hotel market. But disregarding the price, the hotel is incredibly well presented. Really relaxed, full of comfortable designer furniture, welcoming and professional staff even on arrival at 11.30pm. Rooms were equally lovely and comfortable. Everything new, clean and of a good, even generous, quality. In many respects it is a boutique hotel with all the conveniences and benefits of an efficiently run business travellers hotel. Will definitely be staying again.
Just one word of warning - Utrecht town centre is a 10 minute taxi ride away. There is a free shuttle bus service.
