Really nice hotel. Location is superb. Close enough to nip back whilst out shopping but also set in a position that doesn’t feel like it’s in the city centre. The champagne breakfast was a highlight for us. The beautifully sunlit breakfast room is stunning, and...More

Definitely a five star hotel. Impeccable service, friendly staff that really interacts with the guests. Good sized rooms (especially in the main building) with all the mod cons. Not cheap but worth it.

I stayed in this hotel last November, and I stayed in one of the suites. There is enough room for a family of four. This hotel is the best in Utrecht.
