Top plek in Utrecht, al 2 keer te gast geweest. Van alle gemakken voorzien. Zeer gastvrij en open, we mochten onze bagage al eerder afgeven zodat we op ons gemak door Utrecht konden wandelen. Hoop er in de toekomst weer te verblijven.
This is a beautiful apartment, a bit out of the way, but within easy walking distance of the beautiful center of Utrecht. Rein was very friendly and helpful, and also completely unobtrusive while we were in our rooms. The space is deceptively spacious and very comfortable, with tasteful decoration, a well stocked kitchen, nice views and a lot of natural light (but also heavy curtains to keep that light out in the morning). If I come back to Utrecht (which I hope to do, as it's a beautiful city that I would like to see more of) I will certainly see if Rein's apartment is available.
A really lovely place to stay for a night. Great location, close to the canals, restaurants and bars. Rein was very helpful too.
The apartment was beautiful: light, airy, spacious and clean. Rein and his wife have thought about everything a traveler might need and have provided it: a well-stocked kitchen, extra towels, information about Utrecht, even games, books, and a bathrobe. In addition our hosts were very gracious and helpful in suggesting nearby markets and providing directions. The apartment is located near the University and is close to bakeries, restaurants and shops. We hope to return soon.
Rein was prompt in all communications with us and very welcoming when we arrived even though it was late on a Sunday evening! Everything was as described. A clean and comfortable apartment with all necessities provided including towels/soap etc Free coffee and tea a bonus. Nice touches like the night light on the landing. The beds were extremely comfortable and the street very quiet. We slept well! The location is excellent. Not very far from a bustling shopping street with a mixture of modern and traditonal outlets and within easy reach of the city centre. Would particularly recommend "de artisjok" restaurant in nearby Niewe Gracht, where we went to celebrate my birthday!
Nous avons été reçus par le fils de nos hôtes. Tout s'est très bien passé. Le studio est comme décrit, et très propre. La literie est de très bonne qualité. Le quartier est très sympa. Merci.
I stayed at Rein's very nice little flat for one short night. Both he and his wife were very nice and uncomplicated. I could keep my luggage there on the second day and keep the key and come and go until I left for the airport, which I really appreciated. The bathroom is a little on the small side :-) but very functional, as is the flat. Thank you both.

About the Host, Rein
We are living over 25 year in our house at the Schoolstraat, Tineke and myself.
We started as a community, living together with 5 friends.
Later on, we started a family and got kids.
And now our kids grown up and they are going to live on thier own.
The house is big enough for the two/three of us.
So, we have a fully equipped apartment for rent.
It is up to you, staying on your own for study or holiday.
But a good chat is also appreciated.
A good introduction in Utrecht, no problem.
