Location wise Utrecht is nearest station, trains are 20 to 30 mins and this station is half and hour away from Amsterdam Airport. Fare was 8.5 euro plus tax 1 euro. About three to four stops form platform 3 train. You can rent a cycle or take a cab from the airport for about 20 to 25 euros. I was...

Large hotel, with good service. Clean, large rooms, with comfortable bed and nice bathroom in the rooms. Bit difficult to reach without a car. With car the best connection to Utrecht is via the Westraven park and ride and the high speed tram. Parking is free for hotel guests.

Beautiful hotel, with a sense of Asian style about the building. Friendly staff, lovely rooms and accommodating with a baby. Slightly inconvenient having met friends who were staying in the opposite building, but this was soon taken care of when we were offered a room in the hotel to be nearer them. Would definitely recommend staying there if you don't...

OMG what a choice of delicious food! I enjoyed the starters the most: I couldn't choose and took 5! Also the main course was a variety of 7 of the many dishes. For desert I chose what we're my favourites were. Just try for yourself and you know what I mean.

This hotel is extremely popular with good reason. Luxuriously appointed and decorated rooms, large rainshower and tub, small sitting area (in my jr suite). Bar does a great job (but they don't have olives for a martini?). Full buffet breakfast. But the best part of the Houten is their amazing restaurant, with a broad menu with many culinary influences. Very...
