1. Carlton president hotel
If you are looking for a family-friendly hotel in Utrecht, the Carlton President Hotel is a very nice option. We found this really a top hotel to stay at. The hotel is slightly outside the center of Utrecht, but you can park your car in front of it for free.
We ourselves had booked a LoftXL room which was a very spacious room with a private room for our daughter. Also in our room was a spacious bathroom with a bathtub, which we also always like very much. Otherwise, the modern room actually had everything you need in a family room with the family.
The hotel has a restaurant (ONE24) that serves food and drinks three times a day, and we ourselves had dinner and breakfast at the hotel. Dinner was very nice with plenty of choices for kids and breakfast was very extensive with lots of different options in terms of sandwiches, spreads, sweets, fruit and then we miss a lot of other things.
In addition, what is a big plus of the hotel is that you can rent the wellness with your family and in this wellness there is a very spacious whirlpool, sauna and Turkish bath. You also received a bathrobe, slippers and a mocktail with this. Wonderfully relaxed, then!

2. Hilton Utrecht Central Station
The second family-friendly hotel in Utrecht in this list is the Hilton Utrecht Central Station. We also slept in this hotel ourselves, so we can judge for ourselves. This hotel is located right in the center near the central station in shopping center Hoog Catharijne. So this hotel is ideal if you are traveling to Utrecht with kids by train.
We ourselves parked the car for free at Utrecht Lunetten and covered the last bit (five minutes) by train from the parking lot to the central station. The hotel has family rooms and these are two double rooms connected to each other. We found this an ideal structure, since our daughter and we thus all had our own room and bathroom. So that way you also have a lot of privacy as parents at night.
Our daughter also loved that she had her own room and we were allowed to visit her in her room. The rooms are modern and have two good box springs and otherwise all the facilities you would expect from a family room.
It is possible to order some snacks at the hotel in the evening, and of course you can take advantage of the extensive breakfast buffet in the morning. This was like most Dutch hotels very extensive and very tasty. Of course, the location of this children’s hotel in Utrecht also makes it easy to grab some food and drinks in the area with dozens of restaurants and cafes just around the corner.
