blog New girl on the blog

Introducing: Lisa Koop, a new member of the Utrecht City Hotels family.

Hi! I’m Lisa, the newest addition to the Sales & Marketing family of Utrecht City Hotels and will be blogging for you. In my blogs I will show you the lovely places in Utrecht little by little.

I will introduce myself properly before I will bring you along into my beloved Utrecht city. A hotel junkie XL is what I am to the fullest. Instant happiness when I find an awesome hotel with the perfect location. Through all the travels I already made, I created a list of my tops and flops. With Utrecht City Hotels I feel like a fish to water. Beautiful hotels located in the vibrant city centre, my absolute favourite part of town. As a citytrip lover I found it important that a hotel feels like a home away from home. This is the place where you take a powernap, sip your drink and then dress up to go to that one restaurant you heard of.  In my blogs I will bring you along in my hometown so you can get a sneak peek so you know what it is all about. What are the classics and what are the new kids on the block. Nothing is nicer to get the local advice where to eat and where to buy your souvenirs. I hope I could give you some beautiful memories as the ones I collect.

7 years ago I moved to Utrecht and we were just like that! Immediately I could Utrecht make my home. It is a splendid city where everything is around the corner. It feels like a small village but with the most beautiful canals of Europe. Strutting around the canals with a coffee to go or to sip an espresso in one of many lovely coffee bars. In the weekend enter a café where a small music band is playing and stay until the late hours. At midnight walk underneath the Dom tower and promise yourself to come back to Utrecht.

The last past years Utrecht experienced a tremendous growth where a lot of great restaurants, boutiques and hotels opened their doors. It is one of the thing I can enjoy to the fullest. Sitting in the sun and put my sunglasses on in summertime and in wintertime with a hot choco sitting in a window seat by one of my favourite places called Teds. At Teds you can stay all day and start with a bloody mary or just with a regular coffee. It doesn’t matter after all it is all day breakfast!

I am looking forward to showing you around what I find to be the greatest city in The Netherlands, Utrecht. For now I’ll give you a little wave, I can’t wait to show you my favorite places in the city! Stay tuned…
