Grand Hotel Karel V, Utrecht
Great hotel in the center of old Utrecht
I happened to break an ankle and sprain the other while in Utrecht. The hotel is very nice,wonderfully located in the old part of town and the staff is amazing. They helped me with a wheelchair, and all our needs to get to the hospital and airport. We also had a very spacious room with accessible shower. Considering the circumstances they made our stay as comfortable as possible. I’m sure this hotel is great no matter what of course!

An overnight in Utrecht
Kind staff and good size rooms. AC works well enough for the hot summer days. It wasn’t what I expected to be a 5 star level but it suited our needs just fine. Good location to walk the city.

Comfort and convenience
This is a really nice hotel in a great location. It is set on well landscaped grounds and the back gate leads into the old part of Utrecht. Really convenient and comfortable.

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

Grand Hotel Karel V, Utrecht
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.
