René is a wonderful host! His place was excellent- sparking clean with fresh flowers and a variety of snacks thoughtfully provided. I was here for a conference, and Rene not only provided kind words when I was nervous for my speech, but also drove me to the train station when it was time to leave. You’re sure to have a lovely time here.
This is a truly amazing apartment in one of the most beautiful and historic cities in the Netherlands! Conveniently located just steps from Utrecht Centraal railway station (5 min walk) and a ten minute bicycle ride (very nice bicycles provided with apartment) to the historic center! Both my wife and I agree René’s apartment is the best Airbnb we’ve ever stayed in! Everything from the lovely houseboats and treelined canal view through the enormous north facing windows to the beautiful back veranda above the lovely garden were superb, as well as the well appointed kitchen, the very comfortable bed with high thread count sheets, and the great shower with extra towels and wash cloths make this a great apartment. René is a super host! You will love your stay in Utrecht!”
Dit is echt een geweldig appartement in een van de mooiste en meest historische steden van Nederland! Gunstig gelegen op slechts een steenworp afstand van station Utrecht Centraal (5 minuten lopen) en tien minuten fietsen (zeer mooie fietsen voorzien van appartement) naar het historische centrum! Zowel mijn vrouw als ik ben het ermee eens dat het appartement van René de beste Airbnb is waar we ooit in hebben verbleven! Alles, van de mooie woonboten en het treelined kanaalzicht door de enorme ramen op het noorden tot de prachtige achterveranda boven de mooie tuin waren fantastisch, evenals de goed uitgeruste keuken, het zeer comfortabele bed met hoge draadentellen en de grote douche met extra handdoeken en washandjes maken dit een geweldig appartement. René is een super gastheer! U zult genieten van uw verblijf in Utrecht! ”
We really enjoyed our stay at René’s place! The apartment is brilliant! It’s located 5 min. by bike from the city center and right next to the canal. René’s hospitality was outstanding. He was always around for tips on which places to visit in Utrecht and even made us a list with events that took place while we were there.
“Rene and Jaap’s apartment is very clean, stylish and in a wonderful central location making it easy to get around and tour Utrecht and the surrounding areas. As is the case with many older European cities, the roads in the city center circle around and can be confusing to navigate. If you do things correctly, it only takes 10-15 minutes to walk from Centraal Station to the apartment. If you use Google Maps to get your route, be sure to select a “walking” route as I accidentally got directions as if I were driving and was routed in a less efficient manner! My bad.”
“A really cozy and clean flat, near to the station, where you can feel like at home. René and his partner are perfect hosts, let all kinds of little attentions in the flat and giving good tips to discover Utrecht. They also provide two excellent bikes which is so “gezellig” in the Netherlands ! A place to go!”
“Stylish large apartment with a beautiful view over one of the canals, well located close to the central rail station and the Jaarbeurs convention complex. My host Rene could not have been more helpful. Highly recommended!”
“Rene’s home is very clean, bright and comfortable. It has all the extra special touches that make you feel at home. We were welcomed by fresh flowers, fruit, snacks and drinks in the fridge. Rene didn’t overlook anything! The canal view and location are great. Rene’ is definitely a Super Host! You won’t be disappointed!”
“Rene, thanks again for the wonderful hospitality! Your house is beautiful and all of your special touches made me feel right at home! It was a please to meet both of you! I will always remember the kindness you showed me! Thank you!”
We had a fantastic stay at Rene’s place. His hospitality was exceptional, especially when we both took poorly. The apartment is lovely – spacious, light, clean with all the amenities we needed and a number of special touches. Location is great- overlooking the canal and just 10 minutes into the Old Town. Would thoroughly recommend this accommodation.
