FAQ

When is a reservation a group reservation?

A reservation is a group reservation when it has 5 or more rooms. The best way to book these reservations is through e-mail; welcome@utrechtcityhotels.com. The easiest way to cancel your reservation is to call the front office.

I would like to get an airport pickup. What are the possibilities?

Mother Goose offers two options for an airport pickup: a regular taxi or a Tesla Cab.

From and to the airport Mother Goose works with Tesla Cabs. Your journey from door to door will be in an electric Tesla, where you'll enjoy all the luxury the Tesla offers. A table for your laptop, a bottle of water and wifi guarantee a smooth ride for you to enjoy the view or answer some e-mails. Exclusively for Utrecht City Hotels guests, the standard fee of € 137,00 is reduced to € 79,00. Please let us know if we can make a reservation for you.

Would you prefer a regular taxi? We can take care of that reservation as well.

Does Mother Goose have gift vouchers?

We certainly do! Looking for a unique and original present? We would love to help you out. Our gift vouchers are great to give and great to get as a present!

I have problems walking, are all rooms accessible by lift?

Several of our rooms can be reached by lift, so that you do not need to use the stairs. Ask us about the availability of these rooms, Mother Goose will be pleased to give you personal advice.

Does Mother Goose have rooms that are suitable for disabled people?

Because Mother Goose has taken up residency in an ancient and monumental building, it was almost impossible to realise specially adapted rooms and facilities. The many stairs and beams are unique and very beautiful, but unfortunately it makes the hotel less suitable for disabled people. But please do not hesitate to contact us about the possibilities, because Mother Goose’s sister, the Court Hotel, does have specially adapted rooms. We would be pleased to help you.

Are pets allowed in Mother Goose?

No, unfortunately pets are not allowed in Mother Goose.

Can Mother Goose help arrange something really special for my loved one? It should really be a FANTASTIC present...

These are just the requests Mother Goose likes! We absolutely love to arrange something special for you, and without any false modesty, we must say that we are pretty good at it too. No request is too crazy. Dining on top of the Dom Tower? We will try to arrange it for you! So please, do not hesitate to contact us.

I will arrive by car, where can I park?

We always advise our guests come to Mother Goose by public transport if possible. Not only is it environmentally friendly and more relaxed due to the Netherland's excellent infrastructure, it is also simply the easiest way, because the city employs a policy of deterrence when it comes to cars in the city centre.

Should you prefer to come by car, Mother Goose has managed to procure a private parking garage at only a 2-minute walk from the hotel. Please inform Mother Goose of your parking wishes upon reservation, as the number of spaces is limited.
The cost of a parking space is € 25,00 from check-in at 15:00 until check-out at 12:00.

Does Mother Goose serve breakfast?

Yes, of course! But wilful as she is, Mother Goose does not serve the 'average breakfast buffet'. Instead, breakfast is served at Daens Café which is ideally located across the street, at 50 meters from Mother Goose. At your request, we can also serve breakfast in your room. Please feel free to ask about the possibilities.

However, should you wish to enjoy a 'hotel breakfast buffet', our sister hotel Court Hotel happily welcomes Mother Goose's guests at the breakfast table.

 

Does Mother Goose have its own restaurant?

Unfortunately, Mother Goose does not have a restaurant. However, because of its perfect location, Mother Goose is surrounded by Utrecht's finest restaurants. We are happy to advise you and make reservations.

Here are some of Mother Goose's favorites:

Brasserie & Restaurant De Rechtbank - Italian influences make for surprising lunch- and dinnerdishes. De Rechtbank is famous for its risotto served from a large Parmezan cheese, prepared at your table!

Lobby-restaurant Zussen - Cocktails and scrumptious bites make Zussen a Mother Goose favorite for drinks.

Citycafé Broers - delicious lunch dishes such as our favorite Broers Salad, a cappuccino on their sunny terrace, or a typically Dutch 'borrel' (afterwork drinks) with 'bitterballen' (yes - try them), Broers is often referred to as the livingroom of Utrecht.

Do the rooms have a minibar?

No, unfortunately there is no minibar in the rooms. But the Mother Goose living room does have a huge SMEG fridge with an extensive selection of cold drinks. Of course, we also have sweet and savoury snacks available.

We would like to book a room for 3 guests (adults), is this possible?

Unfortunately, Mother Goose’s rooms are designed in such a way that it is not possible to put an extra bed in the rooms.

We would like to stay at the hotel with 1 baby (younger than 2 years), is this possible?

But of course! We would be more than happy to put a cot (free of charge) in the Large Mother Goose and in our suites! Because we have a limited number of cots, we can only do this on basis of availability. So please, let Mother Goose know in advance, so she can make sure your baby has everything he or she needs.

We would like to stay at Mother Goose with our family, is this possible?

Yes, of course it is! With our family guests in mind Mother Goose offers a Goose Family Room, consisting of two Large Goose Rooms with a connecting door. This way, parents and children keep their privacy but can still stay at our hotel together! Bookings for these rooms are only upon consultation with Mother Goose. Please contact her for more information.

When booking a room, can I be sure that my preferences are acknowledged?

Of course you can let us know about your preferences/wishes. Mother Goose will do all she can to comply with all your wishes. We cannot, however, give any guarantees. If you have any specific wishes, then please contact Mother Goose. She would love to help you out as much as she can!

Can I indicate in advance which floor has my preference?

Of course you can let us know in advance on which floor you prefer to stay. Mother Goose will do her utmost to honour your request, but we cannot guarantee you will end up on the floor you have requested.

Why does the room I’d like to book have different prices per night?

Mother Goose works with a best available price per night and therefore it can happen that the same room has a different price each night.
