Dutchies in Utrecht
We were in the Boerderij, standard room on 2nd floor, but the other buildings seemed to be a bit better maintained than ours. Some of the glasses at the breakfast bar were dirty or cracked, so I think they should give a little more attention to the details

Beautiful, central hotel in lovely Utrecht
Beatuful historic hotel. There was a festival nearby, otherwise I imagine it is very quiet there. Friendly and professional staff, very high standards. Spacious rooms. Great location, beautiful gardens.

Convenient and Comfortable Hotel
Stayed at the Grand Hotel for one night while visiting Utrecht. It was a 5 minute walk from the train station (once you navigate through the mall). The property has two buildings. We did not stay in the main building. Our room felt a bit outdated but was clean and comfortable. We were there for a short period of time as we were out and about exploring the city. It is incredibly close to all sorts of restaurants, shops, bars, movie theaters, etc. The property itself is really beautiful. There is a restaurant onsite that we did not eat at but was quite busy. Wifi was free and worked fairly well. This hotel was comfortable and conveniently located.
