“Nice hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2011

I was in Van der Valk hotel 2 weekend ago for the first time. Really nice hotel.
The rooms are very spacious and the bathroom have both shower and bath.
The room cleaness is excellent.
We tried the restaurant of the hotel and the food quality was really delicious.
The choice for the breakfast is quite wide and the quality good.
There is a nice bar in the lobby.
Wi-fi connection is free in all hotel area.

I really enjoyed this hotel, exceptionally nice rooms and great service. It catered exceptionally well for me as I was on a business trip and it's very close to the Expo center in Houten.

Happy customer! I'll be returning for the next show at the expo center.

Good hotel, nice three-night deals to be had, really comfortable bathroom, but I thoroughly dislike twin beds. For business this may be a solution for two persons sharing, but we were on a weekend out and would have liked a double or kingbed better.
Breakfast was great and we liked the choice of juices (8 I think) a lot. The location is better fot business than leisure, but with a car it is close enough to Utrecht etc.

I stayed here for two nights in November whilst attending a trade show at the hotel itself. I was very very please with my 8th floor room, spacious with two huge beds, massive bathroom with jacuzzi and a large 40 inch TV. Quality of the fittings and carpet were excellent, sound proofing was very good and I had 90 degree views into Utrecht.
There are two massive restaurants and one does a live cooking evening at weekends and the other doubles as the breakfast room. My only criticsm was that there were no fitness facilities at this hotel, even a small gym would have been nice as there are no facilities nearby.

Room Tip: Highre floors the better but with only 10 rooms per floor, noise is not an issue.

We stayed at this hotel for 4 weeks this summer, and then again this past month for a week.
It is one of the newer hotels of the Van der Valk chain, and certainly a big improvement over the older Van der Valk hotels.
Parking: free and plenty of it.
Check-in: quick, no problems even with my early arrival.
No bell service, but there are luggage carts. I am sure though someone of the staff will help you if you ask. It is that kind of place.
Staff: I have nothing but good words for them! Great personal service, very accommodating; if it is within their power to please the guest, they will.
Example: When my elderly mother arrived early one day to have breakfast with us, the front desk staff made sure she was seated comfortably while waiting, and served her coffee with cake on the house. I think this is exceptional.
The rooms: well designed, the beds are the best I have come across in hotels, rooms are clean, plenty of storage space for your clothes, modern furniture, flatscreen TV, and the bathrooms are very large with separate bath and shower.
Location: on the edge of Houten, a small town near Utrecht with an authentic old center (a few nice restaurants there) as well as a larger shopping area in the newer section of town. Bus stop in front of the hotel. Easy access to A27. Houten has its own railway station with ample parking in the garage of the adjacent shopping center. It is about 10 minutes by train to the center of Utrecht, an old city certainly worth of a visit. Utrecht Central Station is a main hub for trains to every corner of the Netherlands.
Restaurant: breakfast is fantastic, so many choices and a chef on the spot. Lunch and dinner: decent quality and reasonable prices. Make sure to order "bitterballen" with your cockails! The place is big, and can be rather crowded in the weekends. Staff is efficient, pleasant, and great with children. My grandkids, 2, 3, and 5 years old, love to come for dinner there; the kids menu comes with crayons, a picture to color, and an animal cup to take home.
There is no pool, and no exercise room, however, since the hotel is at the edge of town it is easy to go for a run.
Internet included in the room price.
I will return!

Room Tip: All rooms are fine, as far as I have experienced. I have a preference for a high floor and they coul...

The hotel is reachable by car and public transport. The service was good (and expensive).

This is a very nice hotel. Very clean and the rooms are large and comfortable with great bathrooms and comfortable beds.
The breakfast is extremely nice and very good quality/fresh with a large selection.
Staff are very friendly and can't seem to do enough to help.
The only downside I can think of is that it is in Houten and there's not a lot to do directly in the vicinity of the hotel so go prepared with that in mind.
Excellent conference facilities - highly recommended for business and maybe for pleasure if you are staying the night on the road somewhere else.
