“Decadent interior”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

We chose this hotel because of its affordability and proximity to the old market square. I realised that it was situated near a major road, but decided to risk it. What a surprise it was! The check in was efficient and friendly. All our questions were answered patiently. the room was a treat to behold! Velvet, crystal, cosy and atmospheric... very romantic and spacious. The setting was quiet with a lovely view over the Maas river (if you sit on your knees on the bed and look out - great morning coffee position....) the road did not pose any noise problems and the room felt more 4 than 3 star! The steps are steep and narrow (no lift), so if you have a lot of luggage, ask for a lower floor...

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the Maas River. We stayed on the 3rd floor, but the 2nd floor has bigger wind...

I had intended to white a review on D’Orangerie after we had stayed there in July last year but unfortunately it slipped my mind and it was only after staying at a very disappointing hotel last week that I remembered how good this hotel is.

We spent 4 days at the hotel. We had been allocated one of the newly refurbished rooms in the annexe overlooking the Maas. The room had been very well designed and was a good size too, particularly as we had taken our dog with us as well. The staff were all very friendly and the level of service was also very good. Despite our room overlooking a busy main road we were not disturbed by any traffic noise at all. The breakfast buffet had plenty of choice and was well presented and on our last day we were even able to eat in the small garden at the rear of the hotel which was nice.

One particular point that I want to make and this is mainly for the benefit of those people who do travel with their pets, the hotel really did make an effort. Firstly, there was a water bowl and a bowl of dog biscuits waiting in the room when we arrived and secondly we were able to move around the hotel with the dog freely (naturally on a lead). Many hotels say that they welcome pets but more often than not there are so many restrictions put in place that you might as well not bother taking them. It seems to me that it is an easy way fro some hotels to make extra money for very little outlay. So, when you do find a hotel where they genuinely do welcome pets you really do appreciate the difference.

Check-in was smooth and friendly. We were given an attic room on the third floor as we had booked a triple room. Positives on the room - large room, large bathroom, nespresso, cute furnishings. Negatives on the room - poor lighting (it was quite dark in the room even with all the lights on), when we checked in - the third bed wasn't made up for the third person when we checked in and there was no towels for the third person, there was an empty heineken bottle on the coffee table, and the table was dirty, and the safe wasn't working properly. On the plus side - a great young man carried our bags up for us when we checked in and back down to the lobby when we checked out. The staff always had smiles on their faces and were friendly, and we did have a good stay in the hotel once we got some of the issues with the room sorted. Our room faced the street - so it was noisy at night when the bars/ pubs emptied out, but was otherwise quiet. The breakfast served was good - and I enjoyed it. The hotel was in a good location - the Market Square is just down the road and a close walk to the main attractions around town, and the Maas river was just around the corner. Overall a nice place to stay in, and I will be back.

We loved our short stay in D'Orangerie: the hotel is very well located, near the terraces along the river and only a few steps away from the Market Square and it's restaurants.
This old mansion is strangely built: the ceilings of the second floor are quite low and probably not so comfortable if you are tall (ask for 1rst floor), but I am only 1m57 tall. By the way, the 3-floor hotel has NO ELEVATOR, but it offers a charming bar, the service is good, the rooms correctly equipped, with mini-bar, TV, free wifi, coffee set Nespresso ....
The breakfeast restaurant offers a full service of viennoiseries and sweets, plates of cheese and meat, even a glass of mousseux. In summertime, you can take your breakfeast in the garden terrace. The quality/price ratio is very correct for Maastricht historic part of the city. Oh, I almost forgot: the hotel has a private closed parking place, an appreciable feature in Maastricht

Room Tip: The rooms on the back are very quiet (view over gardens and roofs). Be carefull: there is no elevata...

I would love to give this hotel a 5/5 but the beds were terribly uncomfortable. With that aside - we loved our time there. In a great location - right by the Maas river and steps away from the main Market square with all the shopping streets, this hotel is spot on in terms of a city trip location. We stayed in the new building, attached to the main hotel in Le Meuse room - so cute and characterful. Everything you could need is there - robes, slippers, toiletries, coffee machine - everything. It is decorated in a charming way with lots of colour and cute touches. We had a river view and it was just really lovely - no complaints (other than the bed). Included in our very reasonable rate was breakfast - we expected the standard dull fare, but were so pleasantly surprised by the spread. A variety of hot foods, lovely cereals, so many pastries and breads, meats and cheeses, juices - everything! The breakfast area is also so lovely - beautiful decoration and gorgeous plates and glasses. It was too cold to sit outside and enjoy their back garden, but this area also looks really beautiful to enjoy breakfast in when the weather warms. There is a great lounge area in this hotel as well - bright, exotic colours and unique chairs welcome you. One night we were sitting and chatting and were offered complimentary glasses of wine and olives - just lovely! As it was Easter, the hotel was brimming with chocolates for the taking as well. The staff were all very friendly - making us dinner reservations, printing us off train schedules, asking if the WiFi was good. We felt very taken care of. As the building is very old and charming, you need to expect a little noise, and bring right off the water where sound echoes, the Friday night did get a little noisy once the nearby bars emptied - but a small price to pay for such a supreme location. Thank you very much for the lovely stay!!

Room Tip: We stayed facing the water - though a lovely view, if you are a light sleeper, you might want to fac...

this old mansion perfectly located, on the Maas river, just few meters from the Markt Square. But our room was in a building nearby the hotel itself, we had to go there (so go out completely dressed) for the breakfast, bathroom in the room with no door, ceilings high enough neither for a medium sized person. No, it is not a fair price what you pay...too much!

Having recently stayed in a near £100 a night seaside hotel in the UK this hotel shows what a £100 a night hotel should give you.

The location is excellent only a few hundered metres from the main centre but not so good if you have car as like many Dutch cities cars are discouraged and parking is expensive. The hotel was very well maintained inside and had a lovely little reception area where you could relax and order a drink. Breakfast was across the way in another lovely room.

Our room was on the third floor and those who have difficulty walking would not like this as it is stairs only. The room itself was very comfortable, well furnished and lots of lovely little touches like dressing gowns, complimentary shaving and toothbrush packs. The bed was enormous and there was an extensively stocked mini bar.

The view was poor but we were only there for 2 nights and didn't plan to spend our time in the hotel room looking out of the window.......

For a continental hotel it was very expensive, including breakfast and that to us was the only downside.
