Host was waiting for me and received me warmly

On the day of my arrival, a taxi driver dropped me at another location (house with same house number) and I was not able to call the host from my mobile due to roaming issues. So once I realized I was in the wrong place and managed to get in front of Marinel's house by walking around the town, I was very late - nearly 11pm. Yet I received a very warm welcome from Marinel and Frank. Equally, upon my departure, Marinel was flexible and allowed me to leave later, thus I had extra few hours in the morning to explore the city. Pros: The green view from the room was exactly as in the picture. The room and its furnishing is modest yet very clean. I liked there was a night gown in my room I could use for going to have a shower. There were sweets and fruit in my room upon arrival + map of the city, very helpful. The room is in a pleasant location, near a nice café (URL HIDDEN) Cons: I found the room floor quite cold so consider bringing slippers or warm socks. The room is up on 4th floor and there are many very steep steps – not suitable with someone carrying heavy suitcases.

Everything about this was excellent, clean and bright room. Marinels husband is a great man and let me use his bicycle which I used for going on some great trips out of town, to Amersfoort and Fort de Bilt for example. I would return.

Amazing place. Everything was exactly as in the description, clean and comfortable. My room had indeed a beautiful view. The area is at the north border of the city centre. It is very quiet and green, and in the same time at close walking distance to everything (central station is easily reachable in 15 minutes, walking on the beautiful Utrecht channels). Marinel was a great host, and helped me in everything. Small things like fruits and cookies in the room make you feel welcome. Could not recommend more!

Marinel is a wonderful host that provides all the necessary amenities and more. The room was just as advertised and it was a pleasure staying here. Marinel's house is in a fantastic location as its close enough to amazing restaurants, shops and bars yet is situated in a beautiful and quiet part of central Utrecht.

Response from Marinel:
Thank you, Ross. I would have had an usb charger for you. You shoud have asked me. There also is a basket with toiletries for guests in the batroom, next to the basins! I should have told you too!

Lovely house, and Marinel was very welcoming. Would happily recommend to anybody wanting to stay in the centre of Utrecht (but who doesn't mind stairs - 3 flights of the steep Dutch variety!) The room was a good size, well kept, and had a nice view over the canal.

A really nice place to stay. Close to the city center, and at the same time quiet and beatiful view to trees and the canal. They keep it very clean, and Marinel is very kind and helpful.

I enjoy it very much to meet people from other cultures and to speak foreign languages. Due to my more than 45 year travel experience I think that I know what travellers need, and. I like to help them to make the most of their travel experience in the Netherlands.
