“Ideal location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

The hotel is located just off Market Square, Maastricht. The street itself is neither shabby nor chic, but us three Irish ladies felt perfectly safe walking about this lovely Dutch city. The hotel is literally minutes from the train station, across the old bridge to the old part of the city and perfectly placed for walking around the city. It is also minutes from the square where Andrew Rieu holds his concerts, the main purpose of our visit to Maastricht. Back to the hotel, the bedroom on the third floor, (no lift) was of good size as was the bathroom. Unfortunately the lighting in the bathroom/bedroom was very poor for ladies trying to put on their makeup. There was a coffee making machine, a fridge, television and phone. We also had free Wi-Fi in the bedroom. The small courtyard was lovely for a coffee/beer/cake. We did not partake of the breakfast (15 euro) as the market square has numerous restaurants with breakfasts options from €7.00, and we didn't have to get up at silly o'clock to be down for an expensive breakie. There is a funky bar/lounge, the staff are very friendly and I would have no hesitation of recommending this hotel to other travelers.

Room Tip: ask the hotel to book a taxi to pick you up if you are coming from the airport as there are only two...

1:19 AM still awake, pissed off enough to write a review.
Extremely noisy hotel, I can listen in on neighbour conversations, you hear the TV playing in the room next door, water running, toilets ... just awful. Very poor sound insulation. Don't stay here if you want some actual sleep.

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...
