“Hard to find.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Funny place, virtually no signage out front, just tables. Check in is at the bar. Staff very friendly and helpful. Free parking just down the street, a big plus. Walking up to the room seemed like a very old fashioned hotel but open the room door and you're in a nice large groovy room. Contrast!!
Walking distance to everything you want in Maastricht.

Two problems though. You cannot drive directly to front of hotel, need to tote around 50 meters. Second problem is no elevator. Coming from Australia we are each over 20 kg luggage and Dutch stairs are steep. Fortunately one of the staff offered to carry one bag.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

We stayed in this hotel at the end of June for the Andre' Rieu concert and it was so convenient, just looks right unto the Vrijthof Square. We had the room with the bath in the middle and our friends were in the one immediately below us. Both rooms were very spacious and extremely clean. The beds were large and very comfortable. We had one breakfast from the buffet and ate dinner on one evening - both meals were very good. For anyone visiting Maastricht for the concert, this is an excellent base,however, because of the stairs to the rooms, it would not be suitable for anyone with walking difficulties. This fact aside, we would have no hesitation in recommending the Britannique.

Room Tip: Rooms 4 and 6 have excellent views of the Vrijthof Square.

The hotel is located above the restaurant, right on the Vrijthof square. Since it is an old building, there is no elevator, but the staff helped us carry our bags upstairs.

The room we had was overlooking the Vrijthof square, and it was a lovely spacious rooms. The bathroom is through two large doors, with a big bath and a nice shower.

Enjoyed the stay here, would love to come here again.

Very friendly staff, clean spacious room with very comfortable bed and bath in the middle of the room, nr6 is the only room with this feature. Didn't try the breakfast, but the buffet looked ok. We had a great honeymoon weekend here.

Unexpected, nice hotel in cosy brasserie. Nice and clean rooms with caring staff. Located right at the central place 'Vrijthof' in Maastricht. If you would like to eat outside the hotel, opportunities are numerous.

This hotel has 2 big attractions, one is the view on the Vrijthof (if you have a front side room), the other is the nice rooms. I had the room in the attic which was very cozy and with a bath tub in the middle of the room.

On the other hand it is not a full service hotel. Basically it is a restaurant where they created some rooms on the higher floors. Don't expect room service in the night and the (nice) breakfast could only be taken when the restaurant opened. Unfortunately the promised WiFi did not work.

Hotel is recommended if you want to have a nice room in the middle of Maastricht. But considering the available services the price is a bit on the high side.

Room Tip: The attic room on the front side is very nice but prepare for climbing the stairs with your luggage.

Very chic and comfortable room. Huge bathroom. Friendly staff who made us feel welcome. There was, unfortunately, one silverfish in our room. When we wanted to leave before 9 a.m., no one was available to check us out. You have to arrange early check outs. The only staff member (a cleaner) phoned the owner and various staff to find someone who could check us out. She was very helpful and friendly.
