3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Located in a business area with a nice view of the water. Nice hotel and quite - Team very friendly and helpful - large room and very convenient bathroom for the low price. Large garages for cars The only small inconvenience - Restaurant is missing; on the other side, they do prepare good Caesar salads and other dishes on demand.... :-) Highly recommended.

I went to this hotel multiple times for business trips. Every time the room was perfect, climate control, shower, bed, everything was impeccable & clean. There is a large parking provided, and the hotel is situated in a business park, so very calm at night. The bar is cosy, the staff very correct, and the choice of beverages more than satisfying, for a reasonable price. The breakfast is a correct continental breakfast. A bit further a shuttle service goes to the city centre for nightly siteseeing.

Stayed for 1 evening after a long day. Staff very professional Hotel very clean. My room was clean and very good. I had the burger for dinner was a great burger but that cold of been me as I had been up for 17 hours was tired. I would stay here again if it was only for 1 night any longer then I think you need to be in the town as this hotel is on the Business side of Utrecht and away from everything

Satisfied by the hotel, it is located 10 minutes from Utrecht main station by car and 30minutes from Amsterdam. Typical for Holiday Inn Express, regarding room size (no couch, but only an armchair instead), and breakfast (no hot meal, such as omelette or bacon). Parking and breakfast is included in the price. A negative point was the pillows; too hard. I asked for a soft pillow, and it has still hard. Therefore, sleep quality was not so good.

Stayed at this hotel for 5 days. March 2018. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, staff were very helpful especially Nils who was extremely helpful. Room was comfortable and breakfast was very good. Would defiantly recommend this hotel and would defiantly return.

Smiling helpful staff made the stay special. Good breakfast with great tasting coffee and plenty of fresh fruit. The room was clean, tidy, functional. No noise from outside during the night. It was a very enjoyable stay!

Although this Holiday Inn is located on a fairly isolated business park, it offers good value for money for business travellers, as it is easy to find and has secure parking, good wi-fi and two business desks within the bar / dining area. Rooms are modern - so no wardrobes, just hanging space which is all you need. Very clean, good bathroom facilities and comfortable bed. The evening meal menu was limited but there is a daily “chefs special”. Food was excellent - I tried the fish option. Nice selection of bottled beers as well as Grolsch on draught. All in all, I got more than I expected. As I say, good for business travellers, tourists my find it too isolated but central Utrecht is only 3km away by taxi

A good solution for your stay in Utrecht. The room is bigger enough and the breakfast presents different products. My evaluation is medium because in 4 days they never cleaned the carpet woth the vacuun cleaner ( this is really strange) and because the cleanliness of the dishes and glasses during breakfast wasn't so good. Very friendly staff.

I spent half of my January in a little town call Papendorp in Utrecht, and stayed 11 nights at this hotel. This is a very typical business hotel with the holiday inn express chain, so I wasn't expecting a lot. True enough, the rooms and amenities are very basic. The room is reasonably sized, good comfortable bed and pillow. The wifi connection is the room is good for working. Bathroom is clean and new. However the be mindful when stepping out from the shower as the step is too high and I nearly trip on a few occasions. Breakfast selection comprises of croissants, muffins, bread, assorted cheese and ham, eggs, fruits, juices, coffee and tea. It is almost the same everyday. Every thing is just very basic. I would not recommend for a long stay as there is nothing much around this hotel. Less than a week is probably fine. However there is a bus that goes to city centre for just 2.80 € and it takes 15 min to reach. There you can find more shopping, food and people. What I find amusing is the instruction in the lift. I couldn't feel more safer. :)

So what can we say. the rooms are very spacious and clean, the staff are amazing. The only reason I cant give a 5 rating is purely down to one single factor and that is the very limited menu options. However in saying that the food is very good price but great in taste and portion. With regards to the rooms for a better view opt for 4th floor
