Nice big room and all the standard amenities u expect in the Valk. Breakfast was good particularly as there were gluten free options on offer without needing to ask. Meetings area at the front is brightly lit but tables close together so can be overheard.

This hotel has all the requirements for a first class hotel. The rooms are large and well appointed; the bathrooms have a separate shower and whirlpool bath. Try and get a room at the front of the hotel the view is much better than the back. The restaurant is really first class, the menu has a very good selection of...

About three to four stops form platform 3 train. You can rent a cycle or take a cab from the airport for about 20 to 25 euros. I was...

Large hotel, with good service. Clean, large rooms, with comfortable bed and nice bathroom in the rooms. Bit difficult to reach without a car. With car the best connection to Utrecht is via the Westraven park and ride and the high speed tram. Parking is free for hotel guests.

Beautiful hotel, with a sense of Asian style about the building. Friendly staff, lovely rooms and accommodating with a baby. Slightly inconvenient having met friends who were staying in the opposite building, but this was soon taken care of when we were offered a room in the hotel to be nearer them. Would definitely recommend staying there if you don't...
