Entire apartment directly next to Neude square- in the medieval center of Utrecht. 150 sqm, so very spacious! Huge living room, fully equipped kitchen, large bedrooms, two bathrooms (3 showers!) and a great roof-terrace from which you can see our famous Dom Tower. With wifi, linnen & towels.
The apartment is great for six people, with a maximum of eight.
You're in the city center the moment you step out of the door. Neude square is around the corner, a three minute walk from the 'grachten': the Utrecht canals with shops & restaurants, and a five minute walk from our famous tower: De Dom.
Bikes can be rented nearby.
Two supermarkets are in the next street, and places for great coffee and breakfasts are even closer. There's a coffee machine in the apartment as well. A fully equipped kitchen ensures you can make your own meals, if you want.
There's a double box-spring bed in the first bedroom (30sqm), a third single box-spring bed, two large and very comfortable chairs, and a large table.
The modern bathroom for this bedroom has a separate shower and bath. There's a separate toilet in the hall.
The second bedroom consists of 3 separated parts:
- the first part has a single box-spring bed
- the second part has a twin box-spring bed
- the third part has an ensuite double walk-in shower, two sinks and another toilet.
The entire apartment is very luminous. The living room is large, 50 sqm, and is equipped with an eight-person dining table, two sofa's (one can be turned into a double bed), DVD player and projector to make a home cinema, and a great, fully equipped kitchen (of course with microwave, fridge, freezer, oven and dish-washer).
From the living room, you step onto the roof terrace, which has an 8-person table, as well as two lounge-chairs (one of which is a sofa bed for guests with 8 people). From the terrace, you look at a medieval set of houses, and if you look up, you can see the Dom tower as well.
Wifi, towels & linnen are included in the price.
Utrecht is number 6 in Lonely Planet's top 10 of the world's unsung places:
"Perhaps it’s the lure of Amsterdam that leads people to forget Utrecht. Whatever the reason, this graceful city is bizarrely under-visited. Its old town is encircled by a medieval canal, and you can hop on a boat tour to visit the city’s bustling, vibrant wharves. Built to connect the canalside with Utrecht’s impressive townhouses, today these unique spaces are filled with bohemian cafes, shops, restaurants and bars."
The apartment is part of a small apartment complex. We have nice neighbours that we really like; therefore the apartment is not suitable for enthusiastic groups, so no loud music and no parties inside. The apartment is ideal for quiet people who like to explore Utrecht. Please note that the terrace is accessible until 23.00, as not to disturb the neighbours.
You can easily reach us, it's a ten minute walk from the central railwaystation 'Utrecht CS'.
Utrecht (which is not a part of Amsterdam but a separate city- you can reach Amsterdam by train in 25 minutes) is a great city to visit: take a walk through the old city center, enjoy the canals, or have a climb up the Dom tower. All in walking distance. There are quite a lot of interesting museums as well. We'll be happy to recommend you some.
Any other questions? Feel free to ask.
See you in Utrecht!
You'll rent the entire apartment, no other guests. You'll have access to everything.
Interaction with Guests
We won't be there during your stay, but we'll be happy to provide info about Utrecht and other interesting places in Holland if you like!
Bus stops around the corner, train station at a 15 minute walk.
Please don't make too much noise. No loud music, no parties.
Please keep the terrace quiet, so the neighbours won't be disturbed. Do not use the terrace after 22.00.
Please don't smoke. No weed as well.
Keep quiet in the stairway of the apartment building.
Do not leave food out. Because you’re in an old building in the ancient city center, there will be mice in the building. Please help us keep them out of the apartment by not leaving any food (bread, fruit, anything) out in the open. Store everything in the fridge or top cupboards if you’re not using it, and clean up after you’ve eaten.
When you check out, please leave the set of keys on the kitchen and close all doors behind you. Please set the heating to 15 degrees. Thanks!
Bathrooms - could you please wipe the floor dry after your shower? Thanks!
You can put garbage bags out on the street on Tuesday and Friday mornings. If you leave any other day it would be nice if you throw away the garbage in a street bin.
Luxurious kitchen with stove, oven, microwave, refrigerator, freezer, dishwasher, coffee maker, water boiler and toaster
Sandra and Rob are very nice! They answer very quickly and always in order to suit you. As soon as you book their appartment they send you all requested informations and tips to peacefully live in the flat and district. The appartment is clean and very pleasant to live specially with the terace and the double italian shower! There is all comfort in the kitchen too. The best : the localization is just awesome closed to the very center of the city, nice places, channels... So if you visit Utrecht, come to Sandra&Bob's !
Rob & Sandra were awesome hosts. They were communicative and already provided us with information before we started our journey! Bob welcomed us very nicely and showed us around in the apartment. The apartment was very spacious and had everything we needed!
Sandra and Rob provided easy check in directions and were flexible about checkout. Their home was beautiful -- very spacious, light and comfortable. The set up was perfect for two couples because we each had our own "wing" -- very private. The terrace was lovely as well. The neighbourhood is quite centrally located and an easy walk to restaurants, shopping, etc. The beds were comfortable and the shower was terrific. Thanks, Rob & Sandra.
What a lovely apartment, located in the middle of one of my favourite cities, Utrecht. Rob and Sandra are both very responsive, and are quick to reply to questions. Rob greeted us at the apartment, and wasted no time in getting us acquainted.
The apartment is classily decorated, minimalist and clean. My husband, Niek, especially approves of the comfortable bed. It is big enough to host 8 people if privacy is not a main issue for you and your guests since the apartment has quite an open layout.
Talking about open layout, bear in mind that the main bedroom has a completely open (doorless) shower and bathroom. Niek and I love how bright it is, but for some people it might be an issue. However, there is another private shower and toilet for the more prudish guests.
It has a balcony, that lets in a lot of sunlight. Kitchen is fully equipped, and there is an AV system (with projectors and a huge selection of DVDs) to keep us entertained throughout out stay.
As for the location, it's right in the middle of the city, and just a minute or two walk away from the Oudegracht. It's located on a quite street, so noise is a non-issue.
The pictures posted on the listing give a very honest depiction on how the place really looks like.
If you are looking to host a group, I would recommend Rob and Sandra's pad in a heartbeat!
We loved our stay in Utrecht - Rob and Sandra were very helpful and the apartment was perfect for our family - great location and wonderful space.
