Lonely Planet review
The lushest accommodation in Utrecht can be found in this former knights' gathering hall from the 14th century. The service and decor are understated, and the 117 rooms are split between the old manor and a modern wing. A sunset glass of wine in the walled garden is sublime.
Our independent authors have visited Grand Hotel Karel V and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Utrecht City.
