This wonderful 3 room apartment is located at the most picturesque spot in Utrecht, the Nieuwegracht. Very close to the highlights of Utrecht and within walking distance from shops, museums, restaurants and cafés. It is the top part of a characteristic monumental building and has nice views on the canal with three windows at the front. The bedrooms are at the backside of the apartment. It is the perfect place to stay for couples or a small family of 3 (or 4).

The apartment is bright and spacious (80m2/900 sq ft). It has a beautiful living room, two bedrooms and a big bathroom with bath and separate shower and a separate toilet. It has original medieval roof beams, tv, 2 desks, coffee/tea facilities and a refrigerator. There is no kitchen. We do have travel cots for baby's.

There were three of us, myself and my wife, and 17 y/o daughter. (wifi was a big plus for her!). The apartment is light and airy, and very comfortable. Well furnished and...

What a great historical place this is. A building more than 500 years old, but up-to-date on the inside. Nice, clean and very well equipped. In the middle of Utrecht, yet very quiet and cosy. Great hosts, Ernst and Joyce are very pleasant and helpful people.

This canal apartment is spacious, well furnished and private with hosts who prepare for the specifics of the interests of...
