If you saw pictures of this monumental complex of buildings, you'd hardly believe that this five-star hotel is located in the city centre of Utrecht. Each of the building’s two wings, both the Roman and the Napoleonic, has its own charm and previous guests such as Holy Roman Emperor Charles V never had any complaints. Grand Hotel Karel V manages to create a perfect symbiosis between historical elements of style and modern conveniences in an elegant way. The 121 rooms are spacious and equipped with everything you'd expect from such a hotel. Exit the gate of this 14th century oasis and you'll once again find yourself in the bustling centre of present-day Utrecht.
