Wonderful big and quiet apartment in a renovated monumental building along the famous old canal. Relax on the couch and enjoy the nice view on water, boats and trees. You are in the heart of the city. Sights, shops, transport: just around the corner!
We would like to welcome you in Casa Dede, our wonderful apartment at the first floor of a monumental building along the Oudegracht, the ‘old canal’.
The comfortably furnished apartment (89m2) has a spacious living room, a big bedroom, a kitchen with full kitchenware and a bathroom with shower, washstand and toilet. The facilities include heating, a gas stove, microwave oven, refrigerator, kettle, toaster, fresh-bean coffee machine, washing machine, iron, hairdryer, big flat screen and blu-ray player. After a busy day in the city you can relax on our couch or on a very special rocking chair. The living room is big enough to also hold small business meetings. The bedroom has a king size bed which can also be separated into two singles; the couch can be turned into a very comfortable double bed so four persons can stay in the apartment.
Bedlinen and towels will be provided. Of course there is wifi.
The apartment is recently renovated.
Interaction with Guests
You will have the apartment all to yourself. We provide you with maps and lots of information about where to go and what to do. If you need us, you can always contact us.
Everything is around the corner!
The canals in Utrecht are very special and famous for their wharves, which are turned into restaurants, shops and yogastudio’s, and also for the small stone figurines under all the lamp posts. In Casa Dede, you are in the heart of the city centre and everything is literally around the corner: the main sights, trips on the water, musea, shops in the pedestrian area, supermarkets and organic shops, a massage parlor, theatres, cinemas, cafés, nightlife and business centres like De Jaarbeurs. Climb the Dom, visit the cloister and see after dark how Trajectum Lumen gives places in the centre a whole new light.
The central station is only at a walking distance of 5 minutes. From there you can reach the rest of Holland in short daytrips by train. There is a bus stop around the corner ('old postoffice') and from there the University centre Uithof, the botanical garden and the surrounding villages are within an easy reach. And if you want to rent a bicycle, that’s pretty easy in our neighbourhood. We will gladly help you with your plans and activities.
Other Things to Note
If you might want to stay with a bigger party, we also have another apartment in the same building > see our profile.
At 5 minutes walking distance, we have a lovely Mediterranean restaurant with honest food and delicious fish, where we receive you with a glass of wine and of course a discount.
Please no smoking in the house, and no pets. We would like you to respect the quiet in the neighbourhood at night and not to throw big parties. And we appreciate your cooperation in keeping the house as clean as possible. Thanks!
Ahmet greeted us and gave us a length introduction & welcome to their beautiful flat - it had everything we needed to feel right at home in the center of Utrecht! Its a short (and scenic!) walk (10-15 minutes) from the central station to the flat.
The location was fantastic, and the apartment itself was very spacious! There are several supermarkets that are within a 5 minute walking distance, as well as plenty of restaurants. Jolanda and Ahmet have also stocked the shelves with plenty of resoures about the surrounding areas (and other parts of the Netherlands), and also put together a small binder highlighting the surrounding shops as well as their dining recommendations. We were thoroughly impressed and would recommend this flat to anyone looking to stop into Utrecht for a few days!
Jolanda made my daughter and I feel most welcome. The apartment was very clean, bright and airy and matched the description perfectly. It is sited in a lovely part of Utrecht and we felt very at home and comfortable. I'd certainly recommend staying here.
We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Dede, the location was great and the apartment was very clean and stylish with great facilities. Jolanda was very nice and gave me useful pointers about places to go in the local area. I would definitely stay at Casa Dede again.
This is a delightful place to stay. It is an easy walk from the train with suitcases and easy to find. Communication with Jolanda was excellent and she gave us a warm greeting on arrival. Everything about the place was quality - great kitchen with espresso machine, sharp knives. The apartment is really spacious and a lovely snug place to come home to after walking around in the snow. The bathroom is excellent with a nice big shower, and the bed is really comfortable. We didn't use the sofa bed.
The view out the windows onto the canal is even nicer than the photos! Noise was not a problem. Five stars.
I stayed here for business and found the centrally located apartment in Utrecht very convenient for my purposes. The host welcomed me courteously and showed me around. The apartment was clean and the bed and facilities comfortable. The host had all the tourist information available in the apartment and offered discounts in 3 restaurants close by.
The only disadvantage I can think of is the parking. As the apartment sits right in the hart of the city, parking is expensive, but available.
Jolanda and Ahmet were wonderful hosts - a great online guide for directions to all the essentials as well as local sights and restaurants, Ahmet met us at the apartment and showed us through and had maps and brochures to smooth the way. The apartment was bright and clean, has a very large comfortable bed and plenty of space with a wonderful view over the canal. Utrecht was a joy and the apartment made coming home each night special as well. We would love to return!
Toplocatie! groot en comfortabel appartement met een goed bed. Rustig en toch midden in het centrum. Wifi werkt perfect. Verwarming werkt goed.. Alles is goed verzorgd..

Jolanda & Ahmet like to travel and meet people from various countries. We work in culture and food & beverage. Food in the Mediterrenean style is absolute top for us, with fish as the supreme dish. We like to travel to Turkey, Morocco, Brazil and France. We both love to visit Paris and Istanbul. Whenever possible, we enjoy life!
