“Look, it's a cheap hotel, so whaddaya expect??”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014 via mobile

We booked this place purely on the basis of price and location (near a meeting we had in the morning) so did not expect or even want much. After reading the other three reviews I might have wanted to cancel, but we figured "how bad can it be?". In fact, it's not terrible--the receptionist was very friendly and the location is not too far from the centre, and our room was fairly clean and serviceable--but it's also not "fantastic". The room was so small that we had little room for manoeuver if either of us needed to pass the other to get, say, to the bathroom. Apropos of which, the bathroom and separate toilet are easily the smallest I've ever seen, so small in fact that the toilet would be unusable by anyone much taller than I am (183cm) since the door is right in front of the bowl. Also, the stairs to the rooms are the narrowest I've seen (perhaps designed to prevent rogue clowns from invading??). But, all in all, if you need a cheap bed in Utrecht, this is worth considering.

Stayed July 2014, travelled on business
