Utrecht is located 30 km from Amsterdam but this city is a trip worth on it's own.
We (a German couple working in the Netherlands) live here with lots of joy and we're delighted to share this impressions with you.

We live in a typical Dutch house which makes your stay very charming. But this includes also the steep stairway which are common in old Dutch houses. We don't mind helping you with carrying your luggage to your room.

Reviews of this property
Me and my partner stayed here for 4 nights while attenting the Le Guess Who music festival in the city and we absolutely loved. Satrina was a perfect host who really made us feel at home. We loved the little personal touches! The location was perfect, just a short stroll from the city centre with some really great restaurants and bars just 10 minutes away. The room had everything we needed (including a fine selection of tea!). The three resident cats were also lovely; we are both cat lovers so we had a lot of fun making friends! I really recommend staying here if you're looking for a place to stay in Utrecht.
Satrina is a lovely woman that will always be smiling and helpful.
The room is a little bit smaller than it seems to be on the pictures but large enough for two persons. Do not hesitate to book!
It truly is a lovely room. Satrina is a wonderful hostess that wants to ensure you have a nice stay. She was always available to answer any questions or offer help, and we saw her every morning as we were leaving. I can highly recommend this room!
We were in Utrecht only for two nights and Satrina was very hospitable!
She was a fantastic person. Room was really nice, cozy and very clean and three cats were not so curious!
We had a really great time!!
Satrina and Andre are lovely people who are always ready to help. Without them our trip would have been much poorer. You can’t get bored with them as they have so many interesting things to tell you about and helpful advices to give. The apartment was very clean and we were given fresh towels every three days. There were even beautiful cut flowers in the vase on the table which enchanted my wife. The important thing is that the apartament is situated very close to the city center in pleasant and quiet neighbourhood. The room is bright and comfortable. We highly recommend Satrina and Andre for hosts. You won’t regret it.
We've been at Satrina's accommodation with my girlfriend, we could easily negotiate and agree about every details and issues about our arrival. But when we've arrived, we were surprised in a very positive way: as cozy and comfortable the apartment looks like, as well it feels like to be over there! Satrina is a very kind person who's very easy to talk to, she welcomed us very warmly and she was keen about us and ready to help in every kind of question and situation. Her cats are cute and made us feel like really at home, they give the flat a very friendly feeling! The room is light, the apartment is very well-equipped and comfortable, it was just simply perfect for a 2 night stay over there. Moreover, it's much more personal and characteristic then a usual accommodation/hotelroom, so we'd recommend with pleasure for everyone who'd like to visit and discover the beautiful city of Utrecht! It was a really awesome trip, still missing that feeling so also in this way we'd like to say a huge thanks to Satrina for her kindness and hospitality! :)
Our stay with satrina was a very pleasant stay. The room itself was very nice, with a good view from the balcony. The bathroom facilities were also a very good standard. The only two minor downsides are that the room is up two flights of steep Dutch stairs, which wasn't a problem for two 21 year olds like ourselves but something to keep in mind. Also, through my own ignorance I hadn't realised there were cats in the house. They are very friendly but unfortunately I have allergies so I did struggle a bit.
The location is great, with a plus supermarket only a 4 minute walk and the town centre a 10 minute walk away. If you want to stay in Utrecht I would definitely recommend staying here with satrina.
The room was fantastic. Airy, clean and well kitted out, with a bathroom next door. Beautiful area next to one of the city canals. Complimentary easter eggs and extra tea from the lovely and attentive hosts. Much recommended.
Very cozy and quiet accommodation with friendly hosts. The bed is also good, but unfortunately only 1.40m wide, so nothing spoiled for space! Otherwise, however, in any case a place to a friend.
Sehr gemütliche und ruhige Unterkunft mit netten Gastgebern. Das Bett ist auch gut, aber leider nur 1,40m breit, also nichts für Platzverwöhnte! Ansonsten aber auf alle Fälle eine Unterkunft zum Weiterempfehlen.
