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.

We choose the hotel with my husband cause we went to visit emigration expo in Houten. Hotel is nice, with big room, bathroom with shower and bath with jacuzzi which was really nice to use after tired day. We had fridge in the room or maybe it was minibar but empty, doesn't know. There is a bus stop near hotel...

Or better, you have the small fridge in your room, but... completely EMPTY... I pointed it out to the receptionist and I've been told that was not a mistake in my room, but this is the standard If you want you have to buy your minibar package in advance e put it into the fridge.

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...

We absolutely loved the fabulous Africa Suite with private sauna, steam cabin and spa bath. It was classy, immaculate, supremely comfortable and loads of FUN! The sound effects (spot on btw...we spend quite bit of time in Africa) were the icing on the cake. Perfect for a short romantic break. Great bed, heaps of fluffy towels and robes, quality furnishings...

This one is always good. Must have a car, though, or look for other ways to get to Utrecht. Spacious rooms with killer views, richly outfitted - beds are huge. Clean, quiet. Large parking. Breakfast at 16 EUR too expensive to even try, but you can fix your own tea or coffee in the room itself. Bathroom - the shower...

I was here for a business trip and can highly recommend to stay here to everyone. The hotel is nice, rooms are huge and including a whirlpool. The staff is friendly. In addition, the restaurant is excellent both for breakfast and dinner. Really enjoyed my stay here.

Easy to find (a landmark in this flat country) Friendly staff, clean, spatious rooms, good shower, perfect breakfast (with custom made omelets). The restaurant is a bit big and unpersonal, but the bar makes up for that. What more do you need?
