I was in Maastricht for business and wanted to be close to the city center. In that regard, Ducasque delivered. All the stores and restaurants were a short walk away. There was a good view of the square from the breakfast hall, but the breakfast left a lot to be desired. The eggs had an almost slimy texture and tasted no better. The rest of breakfast was your standard European meats and cheeses. The McDonald's right down the street is not open for breakfast, so if you find a place close by that serves a decent breakfast, skip the Ducasque breakfast.
I was with three other work colleagues who each had their own room. When I initially arrived I was quick to complain, but after talking to the others it was obvious that I had received the best room as it was recently renovated (room #467). My room did not have much space, but included a decent flat panel TV, new furniture, and a remodeled bathroom that I have learned was designed as a "wet room." The shower worked great, but since the opening pointed toward the toilet and sink, that is exactly where much of the water went. This room also includes a motion sensor light on the inside of the doorway. It is extremely sensitive and if you sleep on the right side of the bed and toss and turn, it will turn on. I had to put a post-it over the sensor and sleep on the left side of the bed to minimize the possibility of accidentally setting off the sensor.
The other rooms were not renovated, included ancient tube style TV's, and an old style tub and shower set up. One colleague was initially given a room with a terrible smell and after she brought it to their attention she was able to get a room without the smell. Another colleague was on the first floor and found it noisy on certain days, plus she found it difficult to take a shower without flooding the bathroom.
At the end of the day the rate was 125 euros (including breakfast) and other than location, you're not getting a whole lot.
