Hotel review: NH Utrecht
If you want great city views, friendly staff and a prime location then NH Utrecht is a brilliant choice. The hotel is located next to the train station, and within easy reach to the city centre whilst still offering a peaceful urban retreat. Amsterdam, Amersfoort, and Hilversum are just a short 30 minute drive away. The helpful staff are also more than happy to provide bikes and scooters along with the relevant maps for guests to explore the historic canals and quaint streets. NH Utrecht’s restaurant El Rincõn delights guests with modern furnishings and tempts appetites with the finest Dutch and international cuisine including a complimentary continental breakfast every morning. Stay in a comfortable, stylish room that overlooks many of the wonderful views and visit Bar La Esquina which serves delicious tapas and refreshing drinks in a warm and inviting atmosphere.
