Spacy and light apartment, ideal for 2-4 persons. Just a few minutes walking from Central Station and Jaarbeurs Trade Center. Located in lovely, lively neighbourhood with many cheap fresh food shops and a few very good bars.

The Space

Perfect rental for a cool holiday, business trip or short student/scholarship stay in Utrecht. Travelling to other cities is easy - Amsterdam takes around 30 minutes by train.

The apartment is a charming one-floor place located in the popular, lively and friendly neighborhood Lombok. You will find amazing amounts of fresh fruit, vegetables and bread at shops just around the corner. At walking distance from Central Station, Trade / Conference Center ('Jaarbeurs') (both 5 minutes), shopping center (10-15 minutes). Easy to get to and from by car and public transport. Usually plenty of parking places in the direct neighbourhood (€20 a day, Sundays no charge).

2 bedrooms, one with king-size bed, one with single bed, and there is a 4th, very good extra mattress to sleep. Towels & sheets are all provided.

In the kitchen you'll find a big fridge, oven, microwave, toaster. There's coffee, tea, herbs, pots & pans etc. for you to use.

Guest Access

TV for DVDs (no cable!)
Big piles of DVDs for you to watch (and not to take home of course)

The Neighborhood

Multicultural popular neighbourhood, with lots of small shops offering their fresh fruit, vegetables, bread and meat. There are some truly nice bars you can walk to, I'll hand you a list of what-not-to-miss. The apartment is quiet, my neighbours are friendly and very dear to me.

Getting around

If you come by car, you will find it easy and safe to park on the street. Only free parking on Sundays though, a day ticket on other days is €20. You enter my apartment via 1 small staircase; no elevator available.

Other Things to Note

I love travelling too and I am seriously up for a free house exchange if I like what you have to offer!

  • The apartment is spacious, very conveniently placed (5 minutes walk from the Central Station, 10 minutes from the centre of town on the other side of the Central Station). The neighbours are quiet, the street is quiet, but down the end of the road there are plenty of shops.

  • Me and my wife stayed in Claartje apartment for 4 nights with two small kids, we traveled to from Utrecht Central station (walk form apartment) to Amsterdam every day. It was rally pleasant long weekend!

    Claatje is great host, she was waiting for us til 2am and helped us with parking. She provides all information we needed. Every question was answered in a few hours.
    Apartment is great, nice clean. We had all we needed durning our stay with 2 kids. There was problem with noisy heating during our stay, hence only 4 stars.

  • Claartje has an awesome place, except now I know that you have to be quiet in it:) She is a very nice host, gave us the key and was very flexible with meeting times. Also, she was very quick with communication by e-mail.
    Very recommended!

  • Claartje was great - easy to connect with and quickly responded to all of my questions before arrival. The apartment was exactly as it appears in the photos and quite clean. We enjoyed our stay, and would stay there again if the opportunity presents itself.

  • The apartment is located a short walk from the main Utrecht train station as well as many tourist attractions. We really enjoyed being in such a great location. The apartment was very clean and quite cozy.

    Claartje greeted us at the apartment and left great instructions and suggestions for where to eat.
