About this listing
Located on one of Utrecht's original canals, our wharf-cellar-turned-guesthouse "De Witte Leeu" has a truly unique view and location. You will find a comfortable and charming B&B, which gives you an authentic experience in visiting Utrecht. And it's only 25 minutes away from Amsterdam and Amsterdam Airport!
De Witte Leeu is a generous 40 m2, and contains a kitchenette with all necessities to fix a snack, a fridge, a microwave, a Nespresso coffee maker and so on. Of course we offer free Wi-Fi and there's a flat-screen television with 150 movies build-in for your entertainment. In the living you find also a sofa-bed for 2 persons. The sleeping quarters with its king-size bed (two box springs) and a small but comfortable bathroom are situated at the back of the cellar. In a separate area at the front you'll find furniture for use on the wharf. Weather permitting you can sit out to relax, eat and watch the boats go by. Also you find 2 bicycles in this vestibule. Breakfast is not included. If you wish we can serve a continental breakfast for € 10,- p.p but please book before arrival.
You have your own private entrance to the B&B and the adjacent "babyroom" with cot and babychair.
Interaction with guests
Of course we do receive our guest with pleasure and we can answer all you like to know about Utrecht or give you information about several things. You can always ask us for information.
Other things to note
For even more authentic Utrecht experience we recommend riding a bicycle along the Kromme Rijn to the historic Amelisweerd Estate. Here, a new museum, the Museum Oud Amelisweerd has recently opened its doors with a combination of three varied collections, one of them Chinese art. Be sure to take a trip to Rhijnauwen and visit the Tea House on a nice day; not to be missed either. If you don't ride a bicycle, don't worry. It's lovely for walks, too. Alternatively, you can rent a canoe or a fluisterbootje (whisper boat) for a leisurely trip down the canal to the rivers Vecht and Kromme Rijn.
Check-in between 3 and 4 pm. For other moments please contact us. Check-out before 11 am. No pets, no smoking, no drugs.
Breakfast not included; we can serve breakfast at 10 euro p.p. but please book before arrival.
I am very lucky to live in a genuin canalhouse in the centre of Utrecht. Now being retired it is a great pleasure to run a bed and breakfast in the wharfcellar under my house.
