The hotel is quite centrally located, but as Utrecht is quite small most hotels are central in a way. This hotel at Janskerkhof is convenient for some departments of the university.
This is a converted old building and is quite OK. The facilities in the room are quite modern, and there is a French balcony in my room overlooking Janskerk, which is very nice indeed. Cigarette butts on the balcony are quite off-putting though. The balcony is also perfect for cooling the room. There is adjustable AC in the room but this will not cool down the room quickly. I guess it will work if it is left on for a few hours. The fridge is not stocked, so you have to ask for items if you want a minibar. But this is actually an advantage as you have a whole fridge to put drinks or other things you want to keep cool. Bathroom is OK with small details need fixing. The two single beds put together are comfortable with crisp clean sheets. The desk is very small and not suitable for work.
There is wifi in room for a charge and free wifi at the reception area. As the reception area is minuscule it will not be pleasant for guests to use the Internet there, which perhaps is part of the whole scheme of «free» Internet in theory! The small reception area also meant that checking in and checking out can be a problem.
Restaurant Luden at the hotel served quite good food and was ambitious, but nothing exceptional; the staff was very cheerful though. Breakfast at the brasserie is simple but adequate.
The hotel has a few non-bookable parking spaces at €18.50 per day a few minutes’ walk away. You have to get a key from the hotel to access the car park and to return the key to the hotel afterwards. This is really inconvenient as it is difficult to stop in front of the hotel to return the key – so you end you having to find a parking space after leaving the car park just to return the key! It would make much better sense if access is by a digital code, or if there is a drop-box for the key at the car park exit, or if the hotel sends someone with you when you leave.
