Score from 763 reviews Very good 8.2/10
The reception staff were excellent , friendly efficient - just perfect. Room was well equipped, quiet and very clean. Breakfast was good without being 5 star and overall location close to the old town was perfect.
Minor point - paying extra for car parking was a bit wrong
Resturant & food Sauna & Pool
Friendly staff and wonderful breakfast and facilities
We found the grounds lovely, especially the fruit tree walk, and the location was most convenient for exploring Utrecht. We ate a four course meal at the hotels restaurant , and it was extraordinarily good.
Parking for hotel guests at €15 for the car seemed high.
Great location, delicious breakfast , beautiful decoration in dining room. And to park your car for two days for 15 euro, downtown Utrecht , was a bonus. Excellent service.
I liked the location and the attitude of the staff. The ambience was also excellent. It was easy walking distance to the old town. The desk in the room and the lighting were excellent as was the strength of the internet. It was a hotel that seemed to want to work for guests. The courtyard of the hotel was also spacious and excellent.
I booked a deluxe suite and looked directly at the sloped room of the next building. Given I stayed for three days, I felt the view should have been more reflective of what was advertised for this type of room. While the room was air conditioned, the unit seemed to pump cool but humid air. I tried to resolve this by opening the windows but then could not sleep because the church bells rang very loud all night on the quarter hour. I suggest you open the windows and also leave the air con on and the noise from the air con seems to reduce the church bells - which I really did enjoy during the day. Finally, the hotel was difficult to find from the rail station so I suggest you get a detailed map off the internet.
Everything was fantastic. Great staff, room, food, location and spa.
We liked very much the restaurant, the service, the room, the Garden and the location. Absolutely perfect.
Gardens Interior and decor of main block Breakfast room Super helpful staff Location Cycle hire on site Drinks in courtyard Good vibe Historic feel. Blauw Indonesian restaurant around the corner.
Room in modern block was decent but not 5 star. Patio doors opening onto car park and recycling bins. Problem with lock on our door. Spa pool tiny.
Excellent location, close to the city center and train station, but very quite. Excellent environment and facilities, very nice courtyard, fitness room and restaurant. Staff are kind and professional.
Everything. This is a top class hotel in a great location for visiting the centre of Utrecht (5 minutes walk) and the staff were extremely helpful and efficient
The rooms are spacious and very clean. Also, the pool, sauna and jacuzzi area were a pleasant surprise. Would recommend this hotel.
Our TV did not work very well, it lost signal every two minutes. However, it was not massive discomfort because it gave us the excuse to into town to watch the football.
Excellent location; easy walk to shops and restaurants.
Very friendly staff, Excellent location, great food
The restaurant and outdoor bar area. The location was quiet yet close walking distance to the old town
Our superior room backed onto the lift shaft. The sink plug failed. There was only full fat cow's milk at breakfast (no lacto-free, no soya, no almond milk etc)
The hotel is like an island in the city: several buildings in a pleasant park.
There was some constantly humming generator in front of our room -- sleeping was not as pleasant (or even easy) as one would expect of a five star establishment.
Very pleasant and welcoming staff, very well maintained hotel, good room, everything met or exceeded our expectations.
Location was perfect for the old centre and for the train centre. Despite its central location, the hotel is set in beautiful gardens and is exceptionally quiet, perfect for a short or long break. Staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly. Would definitely recommend and say again.
Great base for exploring Utrecht. Very close to Tivoli theatre, where we attended conert, and the extensive shops. Very quiet location. Jet stream pool good. Vaulted bar good too.
Central location, but was quiet and felt like I was in the countryside. Access to the old twon was very good Great staff
everything was perfect but i have to warn you! if you or your wife hate hospital you will never like this place... it smells like hospital and inside it looks like hospital.... it does give you some shake. the restaurant is perfect! i could say its the best food you could fing in the city.
The staff was very helpful. The hotel itself and its grounds are well kept and relaxing. If you drive to Utrecht, this hotel has on site parking, a rare thing within Netherlands cities. The Karel V is a first class hotel with reasonable rates for the level of service and amenities.
Excellent hotel. I'll definitly recommend it to my friends.
Everything was great! Beautiful hotel, friendly staff, clean and comfortable rooms, and great location in the center of Utrecht.
