I stayed at this hotel for two different weeks in March 2014 and it was so good I am moved to write a review. The hotel is in a lovely, picturesque location in the centre of Utrecht, canalside, but five minutes walk away from the busy part. My room for each stay faced onto the canal at the front and was lovely and quiet.
The hotel is beautifully designed and decorated with careful thought given to the comfort and style of each individual room. The beds are really comfortable and there are nice touches such as Marin and Goetz toiletries provided in each room, nespresso machines, kettles, etc. Breakfast was great.
What really makes this hotel outstanding is the staff - they were all amazing, so friendly and welcoming, but not over-bearing. They work very hard to make this hotel as special as it is - again, small touches that really make a difference, such as providing me with a small jug of milk in my room each day for my cup of tea (the Dutch seem to be put creamer in everything!) and a flower in a jug with a personal message on arrival, looking up train times, and so on.
I would suggest that anyone thinking of opening a boutique hotel or B&B carry out a research visit and by staying at the Mary K to see how they do it. I'm so glad I booked here for my visit to Utrecht rather than a big corporate hotel.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Mary K Hotel is a green deluxe art-hotel situated in a 18th century canal house on the well known 'Oudegracht' in downtown Utrecht. She accommodates nine rooms of various sizes and themes. We divided them in Cosy Small, Comfortable Medium and Large Deluxe. But every single one of them is totally different. For example "the Bedstead", where you can eat, sleep, read or watch television while watching the boats pass by. 'The Greenhouse", where you can rest yourself in a retro relaxed atmosphere with a sliding door towards the garden. And 'the Royal Rooftop" a suite with a beautiful canal view. Especially at night when the light come out. The whole interior of the Mary K Hotel was designed together with Utrecht based artists. Although Mary K offers you the comforts of a luxury hotel, we aim for the atmosphere to be laid-back, friendly and personal. We can safely say that we are one of the greenest hotels in Utrecht. During the development and renovation process, we have sourced our materials carefully. And now that we are up and running we do everything we can to work as environmentally friendly as possible. Just because we think that this is the only right way to run our business. ... more less
