The ambience

You are welcome in our Bar & Lounge from 10:00 AM. At the beginning of the day you can enjoy a cup of coffee or tea with pastry or order a light lunch. For those guests arriving later on in the day we serve a refreshing drink of your choice and you can choose from our selection of bites.

The Bar & Lounge serves as a gathering spot for individuals, offering a delightful blend of diverse guests who visit Grand Hotel Karel V. Situated in the heart of the bustling complex, our Bar & Lounge provides a pleasant oasis amidst the activity.


Underneath the Bar & Lounge used to be the cesspool where even Charles V had his hopes dashed. The staircase beneath the glass panel in the monastery kitchen descends to the basement, previously utilized for tasks such as laundry and caring for the injured.


Here you can find the current offer in the Bar & Lounge. Apart from this menu, you can also ask for the extensive wine list. Do you have any questions or comments? Please mail to or call +31 (0)30 233 75 95.
