The atmosphere, the style
Never in my life I have had such low value for money... A small room (in 3 -4 star hotels it was bigger), a narrow bed (in 3-4 star hotels it was wider), low pressure of water in the bathroom, old doors etc. This room should cost 70 euros maximum!
Excellent facilities, friendly personnel, clean room, extra check for clean towels.
Customer service was excellent. Rooms were spacious, but in need of detailed cleaning-hairdryer & radiator in bathroom dusty, closets interior need a good wipe down as well as doors & walls. Coffee & Tea facilities in room were a nice touch. Common areas were well kept. Gardens are beautiful. Only utilized Brasserie Goeie Louisa for pre-dinner drinks on patio which was very nice. Location is wonderful-walking distance to everything. We enjoyed lovely breakfast at nearby cafes.
Breakfast very costly. Parking is expensive-hotel guests should not have to pay for parking.
This was one of our favorite hotel during our two week vacation in Europe. Every staff member we encountered was very friendly and helpful! We watched one employee deal with a difficult guest and she was 100% professional the entire engagement. The hotel itself is grand and impressive. Well worth the price. We only wished we had more time to stay there. It is definitely on our list to stay at on our next trip!
The hotel is located right in the centre, but nevertheless offers quiet sanctuary from the buzz of the city. The buildings and grounds, as well as the room itself, are magnificent and exude grandeur.
The fittings and fixtures in the room are a bit tired, and are in need of some updating to remain to be of 5-star standard.
The history of the buildings, the excellent spa.
Had to ask for my change three times.
hard to think of anything - no milk with tea and coffee at first, but asked and fresh milk was put in the fridge each day so not really a complaint!
Beautiful hotel, excellent staff, excellent location
Great property, outdated rooms.
The room was outdated and did not match the roomprice.
location - 5 minutes from train station and 1/2 hour with express train into Amsterdam. On the edge of old town Utrecht with canals and restaurants. Will never stay in Amsterdam again when this city is so much more charming, less frenetic with tourists and Amsterdam so easy to get to for a day or evening trip. Also easier to get to hotel from airport.
could not control room temperature and found it a little stuffy so had to open doors for some fresh air.
Breakfast was delicious, but expensive, and not really worth it after little sleep.
there was a party going on in a ground floor room even after 1:00am. I called to notify the front desk, and after 30 minutes of no action, I had to call again. Eventually around 2:00am, it finally started to quiet down. Made for a short night.
Staff friendliness, comfort of room, sense of history of the building, quietness, fountains in courtyard and brilliant club sandwich and chips!!
TV not working- adapter hanging at foot of bed and ariel loose. Also kettle not working and again, an adapter hanging behind cupboard that contains fridge. Electrics not efficient or smart ...or safe ? Not up to a high enough standard for a ' Superior ' room charging a lot of money per night.
The setting was beautiful - canal side / beautiful buildings, spacious courtyard, very comfortable rooms and real coffee maker in room - very impressive! Great choice in buffet breakfast and very friendly service at reception
the hotel bar is not easy to find (it's underground!) and also struck me as not easily accessible by those with mobility issues
Excellent location right in the heart of Utrecht yet very tranquil. Staff very attentive, efficient and knowledgeable. Relaxing atmosphere. Breakfast excellent. Ate in the brasserie both evenings, food superb. Bed very comfortable. Would highly recommend.
Bedroom could do with modernising, especially the lighting and the bathroom.
bed comfort, green apples everywhere, helpful staff in reception.
parking cost, entrance way
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
It is an old beautiful hotel just next to a gem of an old romantic city with plenty of life. The staff is friendly and the breakfast is excellent and they have an old fruit garden where you can sit. I'll give it 9/10
The hotel, for the second time, took a huge deposit on my credit card, so I couldn't use it anymore after a few days. The spa is a bit cold.
Resturant & food Sauna & Pool
The breakfast was outstanding and the grounds of the hotel were beautiful.
Construction made it difficult to get to the hotel without detailed instructions. Don't rely on your GPS!
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.
