4 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

I doubted between 4 and 5 stars. Let's say it's 4.5. Hotel is at a quiet location not far from the road. Staff superfriendly. Nothing else then good to say. Room good. It's all there and appreciated. Worth a visit for any visit of a few days.

Just went in for a 1:1 meeting over a beer. 4 beers were served correctly at the terrace. Just realized after the face that they came at a price of EUR18 and my EUR2 tip. Heeee. This is not Cannes. This is a business park at the outskirts of Utrecht. Far too much.

BartBlikman, General Manager at Carlton President, responded to this review

Dear Iemke, Thank you very much for your review. The beer prices varies. For a normal glass of beer (pils) the price is € 2,90. Next to this we also serve special beers and 50 cl beers which are a little more expensive. My apologies that the prices of the special beers did not match up with your expectations. Best... More

This hotel is a clean and safe destination for the business traveler. Although a bit old fashioned, the hotel is well maintained and super clean and the beds very comfortable. The cost is reasonable and parking is secured and free. And the wifi works well as well. I would definitely select this hotel again on my next business trip.

I have been to this hotel several times now and once again wasn't disappointed. The friendly, helpful staff make it feel very welcoming and the leisure facilities are excellent for relaxing.

Initially, you see the 1980/90s period in the decor and styling, but even though the place is a little tired in some respects, it is very comfortable and has all you need. The staff are friendly and courteous; nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast was very good. I could have stayed and eaten more, but time and diet dictated otherwise.... More

Easy on the A2 exit Maarssen - but still in Utrecht. Better than a highway restaurant. Better food and relaxed atmosphere. Not meant for drive by in a hurry. The asparagus were really good, you can choose it with the traditional ham or salmon.

It's easy to find, just off the A2 motorway by Maarssen near Utrecht. You can park for free on premise, and there is a bus across the road to Utrecht Central Station or Centre (20 mins). The hotel is quite nice for a roadside hotel albeit slightly overpriced, I think. The rooms are quite small but they have comfortable beds... More
