  • “One of the nicest places I've ever stayed! I was upgraded to a large room on the top floor with a lovely view over Utrecht. The room and decor I really enjoyed, and the facilities were excellent. A gorgeous toilet and separate shower with windows in them to still see the view, and lots of tea and coffee provided, plus fancy toiletries and excellent WiFi connection! Breakfast was delicious, fresh and healthy and was delivered to my door everyday in a wicker basket. The staff were helpful and friendly. I couldn't have asked for a better stay and will be recommending Mother Goose to everyone I know!”

Good beds and a good shower made our stay complete. We enjoyed the breakfast in our room, it tasted great and it was more than we could eat! ”

  • “This property was incredible! The rooms were a mix of modern and vintage - very cool and witty vibe. But the biggest plus was the staff. We were completely overwhelmed by the kindness and thoughtfulness provided. An especially strong shout out goes to Camilla at the front desk - she went above and beyond to ensure we had a wonderful stay - give this girl a raise :)”

  • “Great hotel. Lovely room, great location. Friendly staff. An absolute find and a really nice place to stay. Location couldn’t be better. Many good bars and restaurants close. Only a 10 minute walk from the main railway station so ideally situated for day trips if you feel the need to explore outside of Utrecht.”

  • “Both rooms we booked were different and very lovingly and creatively furnished. I immediately felt at home, as it was just super comfortable, had a comfortable bed and you could make a coffee every morning. The bathroom was very nice with a great, big shower. Location: was perfect! You are in the middle of the old town and yet it is really quiet and not too bright. The train station is just 10 minutes walk away. Staff Just super cute! The girls are always friendly and very helpful.”

  • “Loved the styling of the room and furniture. Everything was super clean. Loved that they had good bikes that we could rent on site to get around the city. Also the location is second to none - just outside the touristy area enough to be a little quieter but still very close to everything.”
