BUNK Hotel Utrecht
BUNK Hotel Utrecht
Is it a hostel? Not really. Is it a hotel then? In a way… yes. BUNK Hotel Utrecht fills up the gap between these two concepts. It’s ‘dorm’ beds have as much privacy as a hotel room, and the privates can be as small as a dorm bed. All of this accompanied by a very successful restaurant and located in an old cathedral in the middle of the city. Interesting right? Let’s find out more!
BUNK hotel Utrecht is located close to the city center of Utrecht at one of their fine canals. With only a 5 minute walk from the central station this hostel/hotel is easily accessible from any airport. Within a 10-minute walk along the canals you are in the historic city center and find all the main points of interest. The hotel is located in the former Westerkerk, which used to be a monumental church. This really gives the place a special and unique ambiance.
When arriving by public transport, it’s a 5-minute walk from station Utrecht Centraal towards the city centre.
Travelling by car? It’s not possible to park in the street, but there are many car-parks available around the hostel.
Even though this hotel is neither a hostel nor a hotel, and the looks of it are quite commercial in a way, this accommodation is definitely WayToNomad-proof! It has all the elements required for an easy digital nomad lifestyle. Next to having a very comfortable nightrest with all the privacy of a hotel-room, it is a great place to work from and have a quality meal.
Why it stands out?
There’s a few aspects why this ho(s)tel made the cut. Most importantly is the beautiful interior of the building, giving it a great ambiance throughout.

The places to work from in this church are stunning and provide you with an overview of the venue. A nice little detail in the ‘bunks’ are the lights that you can set to your own mood and create your own little relaxing space after a hard day of work. You are also provided with free soft towels and toiletries, which is always a nice little touch!
