Stayed for 3 nights for the superlative Maastricht tefaf art fair. Hotel is upmarket, clean and bright, modern. Fellow guests are well-heeled and gracious travellers. I asked for a quiet room, and they recommended a Comfort Room in a separate building across the narrow street from the original building, saying that it would be quieter, as it would not front the main street which the original hotel did. It would of course, have been ideal to get a room facing the back of the main hotel, as that would then have been in the historic building and quiet at the same time.
Nevertheless, room on the 4th floor of the new building was very spacious even though ceiling height was low, all modern conveniences were available, the 2 twin beds pushed together would be fine for a couple too. Lighting was dark, could have been a level higher. Bathroom with deep bathtub, separate toilet. Bathroom is small, but adequate for a small person. Very clean throughout.
Free drinks (replenished daily) in the mini-bar in the room, which was a nice touch. Decor is very plain throughout in taupe and brown colours, the whole effect is purely functional. Lovely view out of the large windows. Room has both heating and air-conditioner. Excellent buffet breakfast at 19Euros but worth every dollar for the superb spread including freshly cooked eggs to order.
Main building receptionists are helpful, and the tefaf shuttle runs to and from the hotel at regular and frequent intervals, so that is very convenient for the fair. Shops (including a well-stocked and very welcoming Hermes) are in abundance around the corner on the main street, with many good recommended restaurants within 5 minutes walk in the side streets (a safe feeling, and I am a small lady) radiating off the main street, making the Beaumont a most convenient location for everything. There is a nicely decorated Yoga Palace further along the street which I saw through the glass windows, but I did not get a chance to go as it was closed for the weekend.
I would definitely stay again at the Beaumont whenever I returned to Maastricht.
Recommended restaurants: Mediterraneo at Rechstraat 73 (Italian, book as far ahead as possible), Le 3 Seaux at 41 Gubbelstraat (seafood).
Room to book: Standard room would be fine for single person, Comfort Room a spacious indulgence, but try to get a quiet room at the back of the original building, not the residence. (There are very few quiet rooms in the old building).
