Niklas und ich hatten eine sehr schöne Zeit in Utrecht. Die Wohnung ist sehr hell und sauber. Sie ist sehr gemütlich eingerichtet. Mit dem Bus kann man gut in die Innenstadt fahren und es gibt Einkaufsmöglichkeiten in der Nähe. In der Wohnung gibt es Informationen über Utrecht und es ist alles gut organisiert. Falls man mit dem Auto kommt sollte man auf die Parkgebühren achten. Utrecht bei Kitty und Werend ist sehr empfehlenswert. Sie sind nette und hilfsbereite Gastgeber. Wir hatten einen schönen Urlaub bei ihnen.
Viele Grüße Niklas und Marie
Meine Tochter und ich hatten einen sehr schönen Aufenthalt in Kittys und Werends B&B. Zimmer, Küche und Bad sind wie so gut wie beschrieben, gelegen in einer schönen, sehr ruhigen Straße. Beide sind sehr zurvorkommende Gastgeber, die sich aber nicht aufdrängen. Wir kommen gerne wieder. Helen und Sylvia
We met Kitty briefly, but she was very kind and answered all of our questions. Kitty's place is in an old house (using awesome skeleton keys) in a cute neighborhood, around 20-25 minutes of walk to the old city, and bus #5 was close (goes to Utrecht Central). The room was bright and clean, as the bathroom. We had access to a kitchen and the garden, but we didn't visit it since it was raining a lot when we stayed there.
Kitty made me feel like home! The listing was exactly as described, comfortable and clean. The neighbourhood is very quiet and the location convenient, a few minutes walk to the centre of Utrecht and with a garden overlooking the canal. I would totally recommend this listing.
The room was lovely. Tucked away in a private corner of Utrecht, Kitty's place offers the perfect base from which to explore Amsterdam, Utrecht, and much of the surrounding countryside. Buses to the train station are a short walk away and easy to navigate. Truly a wonderful experience.
The room was exactly as described: bright, clean, and with great facilities. We loved the hot shower and the extremely comfortable mattresses! We wanted to maximise our time out and about, so the only time we met Kitty was when we first arrived, but she was kind and welcoming :-)
Such a pleasant stay! The room was so spacious and everything was clean and nice. Kitty and Werend think of all the details and make you feel very comfortable and right at home. I enjoyed talking with Werend when I first arrived as he told me about Utrecht and gave me all the information about my stay at their place. Then I got to meet Kitty later that evening and she also was so kind offering to help in any way during my stay. I really felt comfortable and happy staying here, and it was a nice, safe location, easy walking to the center of town. Thank you Kitty and Werend!

About the Host, Kitty
Kitty is married with Werend and active as a teacher on an educational institute for agri-business. Werend is a journalist. They have four children, who have left the house to build up an own life. Fond of travelling and always curious to the culture of people in other countries we know that is not always simple to find your way. But regardless if we were in Poland, Denmark, Belgium, Germany, France, Italy, South Africa, Mozambique and many other countries we have always enjoyed the great gift of hospitality and helpfulness. We like to give it back by trying to offer you more than just the tariffs are requesting.
Kitty studied history and specialized in the late medieval development from villages to cities. As Utrecht is built on a Roman castellum at the bank of the river Rhine our city is a fine example of this!
Welcoming you in Utrecht a smart saying would be: meet us locals live. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. We speak Nederlands, English, français, Deutsch.
