    Classic, good breakfast, avoid ground floor

    Good location - even with current construction in front. But avoid ground level rooms as they are too exposed to the construction noise, dust, dirt, and traffic. Breakfast buffet very good with a nice setting in a classic space. Cleanliness could be improved on housekeeping - and upkeep on sinks and shower could be improved to avoid leaking.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    The garden is exquisite, the dining room and bistro very handsome, and the rooms very well designed and comfortable. The only thing we found wanting was the lack of attention to table clearing and providing orientation and assistance to guests at breakfast.

  • 4.0.Fair

    5 star hotel close by Utrecht Central Station. Walking distance to the city centre. Although the hotel is listed as a 5 star hotel, we didn't find this very accurate. Rooms outdated, not very clean, facilities (like the pool and sauna) very small and also totally outdated. Some positive points: decent breakfast with large selection (and homemade cakes) and friendly staff. Would not recommend this hotel, certainly not at the price that we've paid.

    The outdoor property was beautiful and the location of the hotel excellent, in the heart of the city. The room was tired and in need of renovation, and a leaky shower was not repaired during my stay.
