Perhaps even more famous than the Dom Tower, are the canals and wharfs of Utrecht. The city was built around the wharfs and the wharf cellars were used for trading and storing goods. Below street level, the wharf cellars connected the water with the houses situated above them. Nowadays, the iconic wharf cellars are home to start-up companies, small shops and perhaps the most unique hotel of Utrecht: Hotel26.
The hotel’s five wharf cellars along the Oudegracht and Nieuwegracht have been renovated with care and attention and offer a unique hotel experience: sleeping among the locals in your own wharf cellar. Book an apartment by the wharf if you are with a group of up to five people and want to have everything within reach, from kitchen to washing machine. Prefer a weekend for two? Then our rooms by the wharf are the perfect place to relax and experience the city from your own terrace by the canal.
