Excellent service & location. Rooms were good- sized.
Jacuzzi not especially hot. Breakfast prices high.
This is a beautiful hotel. The rooms are very nicely decorated, clean and warm. A big selection of dishes for breakfast. Staff very friendly.
Location is a plus, close to the train, historical areas and shopping all within easy walking distance.
The beds aren't all that comfortable.
The general ambience and the location. Conveniently situated for the Jaarbeurs and the centre.
There was nothing to dislike
We unexpectedly got an upgrade of 2 levels to a super room, which was greatly appreciated. The location is brilliant for quick walks to the city for restaurants & shopping. Also it's only a quick walk to the station for trains to Amsterdam etc.. For a city hotel in the Netherlands, having it's own parking is a major benefit. The breakfast buffet was also good. We didn't eat in the hotel other than breakfast, but the room service menu definitely looked better than average for the range of dishes available.
Good facilities, pool is small to swim in it but nicely decorated, so is good, rooms big, rather comfortable, breakfast almost perfect with good choice and service, so is worse to use it. Location is wonderful, close to everything in this city, kettle and tea in the room were nice
Hotel preadvised my card for double amount of stayment (as they explain - in case I will decide to order smth in restaurant or etc. it was additional 600 eur what is big amount I think), so this looks not so good. Also restaurant located in hotel should have some preferences for guests as we failed to have a diiner in it as it was totally booked for 3 days
Was by far the best hotel we stayed at during our 16 day visit to Benelux. Our only regret is that we did not book more nights there!!!
The location is unbeatable--can safely walk everywhere from the hotel, including the train station. Staff is friendly, courteous, and helpful. Rooms are spacious and clean. The city of Utrecht is beautiful with lots of great restaurants and shopping. Watch out for cyclists--they seem to have the right-of-way over pedestrians.
No in-house store for toothpaste, etc, although shopping mall is about two blocks away. Bring an umbrella. The train station is too close for a cab, but a long walk (~2-3 city blocks) in the rain with luggage and no umbrella.
Directions to hotel worked well for a foreign driver completely unfamiliar with Utrecht. Parking was easy and convenient. Our room was upgraded gratis as the hotel was not busy.
Everything was wonderful.
Large, clean and good looking rooms. We had a room of 55 to 60m², the second room was also >45m².
We were located at the elevator and you could hear the engine, but it was not really disturbing.
the size & decor of the room
the hallways were not particularly clean. also, i was not aware the sauna had to be booked in advance as it was for two persons only.
