We spent New Year's Eve in Maastricht (nice place for New Years!) a couple weeks ago. The location of Hotel Holla is great being only about 150 meters from the city's stadthuis and just a few more minutes to the pedestrian zone. We were in room 16 on the top floor with a nice view of the Stadthuis. The room size was smallish but fine with only one window. The real drawbacks were: it's winter but we had to keep the window open most of the time since the building's radiator pipes (at least serving half the building) ran upwards into and through our room's radiator. It was just too, too warm in the room. The bathroom was small (that's okay) but nice so clean or refurbished. The shower had some mold at the bottom (not terrible) and the shower curtain was also kinda dirty and should have been replaced. The shower was small but adequate. The carpet was old and really should be replaced but it wasn't terrible.
On the plus side, the owners are very friendly, jovial, and helpful with information and directions. Breakfast was fantastic with some of the absolutely best bread we've eaten! The owners were kind enough to sell us a couple loaves of this bread to take home since it's not sold at any of the local bakeries. I have to agree with a previous poster that the "juice" at breakfast is a joke. The OJ was sorta Tang-like and not drinkable at all. But the self-serve capuccino machine, in my opinion, made up for the lack of proper OJ. The food assortment was great.
While there are lots of stairs (and no elevator), this is an inconvenience but not a show-stopper. This is Europe where many places just don't have elevators. An elevator would be nice but won't stop me from staying here or recommending this hotel.
I'll give Holla another try but will certainly request NOT room 16, and a room without the radiator pipes heating the entire room up.
