“An eclectic experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2013

A lovely welcome from Agnes who could not do enough for us. A tranquil setting in a very upmarket residential area of Utrecht, perfect for admiring the wonderful houses there and enjoying the Wilhemina Park with its lake and freezing goslings (it snowed!). The apartment is beautiful..artistic and original, you feel that it is a truly individual reflection of an artist (as Agnes is)
It was spacious and comfortable and we would have no hesitation in going back and recommending it .

Spacious, comfortable apartment with all the amentities you could ask for and more.
The host was extremely helpful and eager to make our stay memorable. Thank you, Agnes.
The breakfast was abundant with some lovely, extra touches - wine, fresh fruit and chocolates!
The location of the apartment was also very good - a short, interesting walk to the centre; close to an attractive park and near to a good range of shops and restaurants yet still quiet.
We look forward to returning, hopefully in warmer weather

Each year I attend the Early Music Festival in Utrecht, covering 10 full days lasting from 11 AM until very late in the evening, sometimes even after midnight. Most concerts and related events take place in the city center. In previous years I had an apartment in the middle of that city center, hence nearly all relevant locations on walking distance. The latter has definitely its advantages, but not all apartments in ancient houses are as comfortable as one gets easily used to as the spoilt traveler I am, apart from the nightly noises often heard in a lively city center.

In preparation for the festival in 2012 I decided to broaden my horizon and to rent an apartment outside the immediate city center, yet not too far away, hoping to have more space and more modern conveniences than usually offered in the ancient city center. That's how I found the Mauritssuites, two apartments at the address Mauritsstraat 30 in Utrecht. It is not really that far away, around 2 km from the Dom tower. You might do it on foot when the need arises, for example in the night when buses are scarce. When the weather is good, bikes are provided for and included in the rent. Otherwise, there are 2 bus stops in the neighborhood, one at 150 meters (1 bus line) and a more important one at 800 meters (over 5 bus lines), each bringing you to the city center in 10 minutes. All in all, I was very satisfied in hindsight about this location, albeit a bit farther away but easily outweighing aforementioned disadvantages of houses in the city center.

There were two apartments on the same address. The one in the basement was rather new and not completely finished yet at the time, but I took the chance and was not disappointed. There was WiFi and a large table to eat and work on. There was a fully equipped kitchen with all tableware and cutlery you need. A sliding door gives access to a terrace and a multi-level garden. There is plenty of room, since the basement covers nearly the same area as the 19th century mansion it is part of, with a floor size as was usual in those days. Book shelves all around with reading material, but I had no opportunity whatsoever to use it while the festival left me no boring moments.

This year I want to attend the Early Music Festival again. I did not look any further, and booked the same address again in August 2013 for another 10 days. Which of the two apartments I'll get is still in the open. The one (basement) I had in 2012 had a terrace and a garden, for which I had not much use because of other things I had to do. The other (ground floor) apartment has only a balcony, which is sufficient for my purposes, for instance to eat breakfast in the morning sun. Which of both it will be eventually, does not matter much for me. It will offer me a comfortable place to stay either way.

I stayed there for one night, but it was way too short. I totally recommend this appartment. The host was very warm and kind. It was a warm welcome! The room was spacious and modern. The beds were comfortable and you can cook in the little kitchen in the dinning room. Also, there are bikes to borrow and so you can discover Utrecht way better. I will definitely book this appartment again when I visit Utrecht again! Thank you so much!

the appartment is really nice, well designed and the furniture look new and very modern! I would recommend without any doubt this bed and breakfast appartment; the owner is really nice, the breakfast was full and the appartment is in one of the best areas of town, close to parks and to the Rietvield house.
It is also very quiet and really close to the city center.

Room Tip: we stayed for five nights.... we should have stayed more!

The appartment is located at a wonderful district of Utrecht very close to the city center but still very quiet. we stayed on the ground appartment for five days, the owner was very helpful and the house had everything we needed.
