NH Centre Utrecht Hotel
NH Centre Utrecht Hotel

The ground floor under NH Centre Utrecht houses café Broers and Luden Restaurant. Guests can enjoy an extensive menu, from a champagne brunch to Dutch and international cuisine.

The famous Dom Tower is located a 5-minute walk away from NH Utrecht Centre. On Saturdays, Utrecht’s flower market is held right in front of the hotel.

The warm, understated rooms come with flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi, as well as minibars, and tea and coffeemakers. Some feature original stained-glass windows and views of the square. Suites add living areas.

A breakfast buffet and evening meals (fees) are served in an adjacent restaurant.

The 3-star NH Centre Utrecht hotel, set inside a charming historical building dating from the 1870s, offers old world atmosphere combined with modern facilities and amenities.

This hotel couldn’t be better located, a short walk from the train station in Utrecht as well as the largest shopping mall in the Netherlands. But it doesn’t take long to understand the fact that Utrecht has the second-most number of bicycles in Europe. And it seems they are all riding at once in bike lanes and streets as well near the hotel.

Once you figure out that the bicycle riders and not pedestrians have the right of way, you are fine. The breakfast was not complementary but was fine. We also had dinner there and it was very good. The room, as was the hotel, was quite modern and spacious. It is also important to know that there is another NH Utrecht hotel in the city.

The location is right in the city centre and within walking distance of lots of sights, shopping, restaurants, and the train station. The hotel nicely blends a modern aesthetic with an old world feel. Other reviewers mentioned that the bathroom was small, but this wasn’t an issue for us, although the shower was a little tricky to operate.

There was a problem with the cooling system while we were there, so the room was too warm, but the staff very quickly provided us with an electric fan to help keep the room from being too hot at night. The breakfast buffet was a little pricey, but it provided a large variety of food that should please a number of breakfast tastes. We thought the breakfast was very good, fresh, and nicely presented. Overall, we were happy with our choice of hotel and would recommend the NH Hotel Centre Utrecht.

Pleasant hotel in the centre of the cityRoom was large and very clean and comfortable, cleaned daily also. There was a kettle with tea & coffee available which was a nice touch after travelling. Staff were pleasant and friendly although at times there was no one on the front desk. The only negative was the WiFi, the connection speed was very slow and at times unusable. Overall would stay here again.

The suites in this old monastery turned boutique hotel are spacious and very nicely decorated. Staff is very friendly and the outside terrace is stunning. Really a great place in Utrecht to stay for both leisure and business.

The hotel is still very new and dies not have a proper reception but the grills that received me were so friendly and helpful. I checked in and was guided to my room which surprisingly as a very huge and modern lift apartment with two bedrooms a living room area with kitchenette and bathroom divided in two areas, one with sink and shower and another with toilet and a little sink.

There were also appliances such as coffee machine and dishwasher and access to internet and Netflix. The decoration was also very modern and the apartment had an independent entrance directly to the street. The area was quite nice and quiet and close by to an area with plenty of options for eating out on a budget. The distance to the central station and centre is not very small but it is a nice walk.

The lounge and kitchen area was incredible. This consisted of a nice little table with a couple of chairs, a really comfortable settee & a television with many channels to watch.

There was a coffee maker, microwave oven and a hob also. Teabags, coffee and milk supplied.
The shower wet room with attached wall hair dryer was sufficient in size. It wasn’t a problem for me, considering that I’m 5ft 10″ and weigh 15st.There was an unusually small sink but nowhere really to put your toothpaste, etc but you can adapt and use the little level within the sink itself.
The toilet also has a small narrow sink.

I slept like a log in my comfy bed on all of my 4 nights stay here. It was a double bed but as this bedroom is smaller than some rooms at this Hotel, you can only get out of one side of the bed, which could cause a problem with a couple staying in this room.

Mary K Hotel

The Mary K Hotel is a green deluxe art-hotel situated in a 18th century canal house on the well known ‘Oudegracht’ in downtown Utrecht. She accommodates ten rooms of various sizes and themes. We divided them in Cosy Small, Comfortable Medium, Large Deluxe and Studio Suite XL. But every single one of them is totally different.

The whole interior of the Mary K Hotel was designed together with Utrecht based artists. Although Mary K offers you the comforts of a luxury hotel, we aim for the atmosphere to be laid-back, friendly and personal. We can safely say that we are one of the greenest hotels in The Netherlands.

This hotel is an absolute gem, the location is great (right in the centre) and the staff are very friendly. The room itself was beautiful and clean, with a huge terrace (room 6). The only “noise” you hear are the church bells down the street. We didn’t even know there were other guests until we went down for breakfast. Very solid sound isolation, in other words.

Their breakfast options include gluten free and vegan options, or with my specific food intolerance, a low fructan and fructose option.

The only downside is the fact that the bathroom door isn’t really a door, but more of a sliding glass door that doesn’t cover the entire door opening. Let’s just say “sounds” echo a bit in the bathroom.

On the brink of the canal surrounding the inner city, Mary K. is a townhouse overlooking the canal, this is the place to have base in Utrecht, if you wish to be just a couple of hundred meters from the main street, and the hustle of the city center.

Mary K. is outstanding in every way. Keywords are: Urban, laidback, unusual. In one word, Mary K. hotel has a great personality, a rare property that I, for one, appreciate.

A lovely, small, funky, eclectically furnished hotel within walking distance to just about everything in old-town Utrecht.

Had a huuuge third-floor room overlooking the waterway/canal (The Royal Rooftop Residence). The room was totally worth the climb, even for this 80-year old arthritic geezer. (Careful of those narrow-treaded stairs!).

Reception was everything one could ask: telephoning taxis, making restaurant reservations, providing recommendations, making one feel at home.

Good choices for breakfast. And juice from real oranges, too.

This is a small, lovely hotel near the main sites & shopping, but in a quiet area overlooking the canal. Room was clean, toiletries super & a balcony which we could sit & enjoy the evening sun.

The staff were very friendly & helpful, particularly with my request for gluten free breakfast. They went out of their way to help me. Pillows & beds very comfy. Nothing negative to say, would highly recommend.
