I went to Maastricht to attend a conference lasting a week. We had the choice between the NH hotel and the Ranwyck. Both were roughly at the same price, both were claimed to be 4*, and both had mixed review on Tripadvisor. There was free wifi at the Randwyck, hence my choice. That was an error. It is not a 4* hotel. It is a 2.5*.
The room was reasonably large, however the bathroom was tiny. There is only a small shower (of the type "hole in the floor"), with no separation from the rest of the bathroom, which therefore got drenched each time. There is a small sink, without any place where to put toiletry articles. I was forced to use the toilet, which fortunately is very close to the sink. There was a minibar with a couple of beers, coke and water, but it is not refilled, whatever the duration of the stay. Same thing for the tea and coffee. I had 2 teabags for the week. Room cleaning was erratic. The tea-cup were changed every other days. Some days the towels disappeared. Another day I got three sets.
There is no restaurant at the hotel and one has to go to the nearby NH hotel or further in-town. There is a very small bar, with a dozen of beverages. The breakfast was very good though and complete though. This is by far the best feature of the Randwyck. The wireless was free, but very weak in my room, probably because I was at the extremity of a corridor.
But mostly, the hotel is not up to the game. It is old and battered, and badly maintained. The lift is extremely slow. All the corridors reek of sweat. It looks like a student accommodation rather than an international hotel.
Compared to the nearby NH, with its modern bar, restaurant and spa, we are in a different universe.
