The Space

Comfort and lots of space
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, iron, 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.

The Neighborhood

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.
Please note that streetview on this page is not at all accurate!

Getting around

Central Station and busstop very close
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.

Other Things to Note

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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Great roomy apartment, and a super location. So nice to look out the big living room windows at the canal.

  • Jolanda's apartment is nice, clean, large, very good. I stayed in his room with my family and we loved the experience. Jolanda was very friendly.
    The location is very good and central, you can walk from the central station in a few minutes. The only downside was the noise of the people on the streets during Saturday night, maybe because it's summer.
    Thank Jolanda and I really recommend this apartment.

  • We had a wonderful time in Utrecht. The apartment was superb: extremely spacious with excellent views over the canal, and very close to the Dom square in the centre of the city (10 minutes walk maximum - and then only if you dawdle!). Again, it's 10 minutes maximum from the railway station, and there is also a small supermarket just a few minutes away, which is really handy. The hosts had thought of everything when it came to appliances and utensils: there were even lunch boxes in the kitchen that we could make use of for packed lunches. Both the kitchen and bathroom are nicely designed and well-equipped. Jolanda is extremely friendly, and was great at responding to queries prior to our visit. The apartment was very good value for money and comfortably accommodated three people. The "pull out" bed in the living room is very large and very comfortable - really not like a sofa bed at all! It was also super clean and stylishly kitted out. Definitely highly recommended. We hope to visit again sometime.

  • Nous avons loué cet appartement pour un week-end entre amies et nous ne regrettons rien: il est très central, spacieux et bénéficie d'une magnifique vue sur le canal. Nous relouerons très certainement cet appartement si nous devions retourner à Utrecht (ville magnifique par ailleurs).

  • Wij, 3 vriendinnen en ik, hebben het appartement op de 1ste verdieping gehuurd voor 1 nachtje. Het is een super mooi, groot en schoon appartement midden in het centrum. Met 2 super mooie bedden en een erg goede slaapbank. Een goede schone badkamer en een mooie keuken met heerlijke versgemalen koffie is het hier prima vertoeven!!
    Wel moet ik erbij zeggen dat het appartement wel erg gehorig is. Zelf sliep ik in de slaapkamer en heb heerlijk geslapen. Maar 2 vriendinnen sliepen in de woonkamer op de slaapbank, waar je duidelijk alle geluiden van de straat hoort. Maar met een paar oordopjes is dit zo opgelost. Ik zou zeker dit appartement nog een keer huren!!!

  • Jolanda y Ahmet estuvieron geniales, nos hicieron un muy buen recibimiento y estuvieron en todo momento dispuestos ha hechar-nos una mano en cualquier cosa que pudieramos necesitar. El alojamiento esta muy bien situado del centro y no le falta de nada. Su ventanal al canal es mágico.

  • I had a great stay. The apartment is really nice, the bed very comfortable and the location just perfect. Jolanda and Ahmet are really nice hosts and helped me very quickly when I locked myself in.

    Advice: Make sure you check if the front door is not locked/open before you leave the key in the apartment when you leave ;-)

    I can recommend this place!!!
