Koen roelofs

Bistro, Bar & lounge manager

Can you introduce yourself?

My name is Koen Roelofs, happily married and proud father of a 6-year-old son. Born and raised in beautiful Brabant. But living in Utrecht since the age of 18.

What do you do inside Grand Hotel Karel V?

The company grabbed me and gave me the right opportunities at the right times and I now hold the position of Bistro, Bar & Lounge Manager.

Together with my team, I make sure the bistro area is also more than 5-star worthy.

Why did you choose Grand Hotel Karel V?

After an enjoyable student life, I started the Hotel and Hospitality Management course at Hogeschool Tio.

From there, I was able to secure an internship at KarelV. That internship went so well that a few months later I was called if I didn’t want to come and work part-time as well. And the rest is history.

Would you like to work in a five-star hotel in the heart of Utrecht where there is plenty of room for personal development and where own initiative is appreciated?
