When you speak of a luxe room one does expect that the bubble bath is working. Same goes for the water heater, which was also not working at all. This must explain the amount of dust gathered on the plate where it stands on.

There is a bus stop just outside the hotel. Take the bus #47. It runs pretty frequently during the week and goes to the Utrecht central bus and train station. It costs Euro 4.40 one way. It takes about 20-25 minutes.
