Beautiful hotel, with a sense of Asian style about the building. Friendly staff, lovely rooms and accommodating with a baby. Slightly inconvenient having met friends who were staying in the opposite building, but this was soon taken care of when we were offered a room in the hotel to be nearer them. Would definitely recommend staying there if you don't...

Nice hotel with large rooms and great bed. Large bathroom with bathtub. Free water. The Restaurant has a large menu and the food is good for the price. Huge breakfast with all you kind of food you desire.

OMG what a choice of delicious food! I enjoyed the starters the most: I couldn't choose and took 5! Also the main course was a variety of 7 of the many dishes. For desert I chose what we're my favourites were. Just try for yourself and you know what I mean.

Or better, you have the small fridge in your room, but... completely EMPTY...

This hotel is extremely popular with good reason. Luxuriously appointed and decorated rooms, large rainshower and tub, small sitting area (in my jr suite). Bar does a great job (but they don't have olives for a martini?). Full buffet breakfast. But the best part of the Houten is their amazing restaurant, with a broad menu with many culinary influences. Very...

We absolutely loved the fabulous Africa Suite with private sauna, steam cabin and spa bath. It was classy, immaculate, supremely comfortable and loads of FUN! The sound effects (spot on btw...we spend quite bit of time in Africa) were the icing on the cake. Perfect for a short romantic break. Great bed, heaps of fluffy towels and robes, quality furnishings...

This one is always good. Must have a car, though, or look for other ways to get to Utrecht. Spacious rooms with killer views, richly outfitted - beds are huge. Clean, quiet. Large parking. Breakfast at 16 EUR too expensive to even try, but you can fix your own tea or coffee in the room itself. Bathroom - the shower...

I was here for a business trip and can highly recommend to stay here to everyone. The hotel is nice, rooms are huge and including a whirlpool. The staff is friendly. In addition, the restaurant is excellent both for breakfast and dinner. Really enjoyed my stay here.
