We had a fantastic stay here. The hosts (sorry cannot remember their names, quite difficult is all I can say) was absolutely fantastic and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. We had a fantastic airy & spacious room which opened onto a balcony. Breakfast was good and always more than enough to eat.
Central location is what makes this place great, plus the service you get from the owners.
We stayed at a B&B in Utrecht which was part of a house. The hostess was very friendly and she made us good breakfast everyday. It is a really good option if you're tight on budget. There are tea and coffee facilities in the room and the bathroom is shared. The place was very clean and there is a piano in the living room.
Near this B&B there the Wilhelmina Park where you can go for a quiet walk and enjoy some breathtaking views.
We had some issues to find it although it is located only a couple of kilometers from the city center.
Quite a big and modern camping, there is a pool nearby but this wouldn't be the place to swim, there is also quite a big swimming pool for that (even if the water was terribly cold).
For a drink there is a cafe-restaurant but I wouldn't recommend it. The service was simply awful!! They even refused to give us some change for the showers, pointing us to the reception!
Unless the bad experience someone else on this site had, i can say that i was surprised by this hotel. The rooms weren't that big, but comfortable. Off course you cannot expect 5 star quality when you go to a two star hotel. The prices were very competitive in Utrecht. There was shower and toilet, free internet in the room en i loved the breakfast with "good morning" printed in my toast!! can you believe it. The centre was very easy to reach, busses stopped almost in front of the hotel every 3 minutes. Walking would be around 5-10 minute to cityheart. During my first and second (yes i have been twice) stay, the hotel was filled with doctors and speakers from universities all around the world.
"good morning" toast, excellent public traffic, in my case to the university, which took me 5 minutes, same for the centre of the town. Nice garden with original canal where boats cross by.
Taking photographs was rather difficult for the large windows were too bright. But standing in the window-sill ..... sorry Yvonne, you just didn t fit in this time....I was getting nervous with you all staring at me .... and the woman wanting her seat back ....
Hotels are near Utrecht Central station. You can find several. Also al the expensive hotels like the Hilton are here. In the center of Utrecht are hotels too.
Malie Hotel - www.maliehotel.nl. It doesn't look like a typical hotel. It's so comfortable that you feel like being at home all the time.
I loved the breakfasts!
A good place to stay at a reasonable price is the hotel Tulip Inn. Large mandarde-type rooms in the top floor.
Well, when I arrived in Utrecht everything was booked. I frankly wasn't sure if I would find anything available but sought help at the VVV office. There I found a double available with their help at Ouwi. Breakfast was included. To be honest I probably wouldn't recommend this location as it was couple miles outside the Center. And to be frank, I paid for a double (which VVV was told all that was available) which was obviously a single accommodation. It had a single size bed (similar to a train berth), desk and VERY small bathroom w/shower (don't drop the soap, you'll hit your head on the sink). The room was probably no more than 6 ft. in width. I spent very little time in the room as I felt a bit claustrophobic.
I would say this was expensive for the type of accommodation. I paid approx. $70US for a double (very obviously a single room). Warning: rooms uncomfortably small (similar to train berth), was nearly out of toilet paper in bathroom when arrived (made me question whether room had been serviced before my arrival), service at desk not exactly friendly. Location, far from city center although half block from busstop that will get you there via 15 min. ride.
If you are overweight, unfortunately you couldn't stay here if you wanted to. Seriously, if you had the same room I was given, you will not fit into the bathroom or shower - it was that small. I would expect you would be EXTREMELY uncomfortable. This is meant as a heartfelt warning not a joke. There is nothing worse than an uncomfortable accommodation! If not for the pouring rain, my fatigue after travelling all day, etc., I would have said 'no thanks' and hopped the train onto to Amsterdam.
Depends on what you want to spend, but we have Grand Hotel Karel V, which is a very expensive 5 star hotel in an old monument in the very center of Utrecht. There's also Stadscafe Oudaen that has it's own brewery and is a little less expensive, but also at the Oudegracht, in the center of Utrecht.
Then there is Hostel Strowis, http://www.strowis.nl, a nice hostel with different styles of rooms and not too expensive.
