“Hip Hotel - Very Cool!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2012

I stayed here last spring when I went to visit my sister while she was studying abroad at Maastricht University. I'll have to admit, I was a little unsure of what I was getting into when I first saw the photos of where she was putting me up during my visit. My first thought was, "I went to Maastrict to stay in South Beach?" but once there I found my initial assessment unfounded. St. Martenslane is a very cool hotel. One that I would definitely stay at again, should I ever get the chance to go back to Maastrict. My room had very much the feel of an apartment and not at all that of a hotel room, all the more enhanced by the fact the main lobby was across the street. I was very comfortable and felt very much at home. The room was clean, quiet and secure. It was also very modern in its decor, whether it be the bed in a cube-like frame that is centrally located in the bedroom with controls for every light in the room or the shower with LED's in the shower head that cycle through various colors while in use. All in all a very cool, very creative hotel.
The hotel is near literally across the street from the train station and about a fifteen minute walk from the older city and markt, which I didn't mind at all. It gave me a chance to go a different way everyday and see something new. There are, however, plenty of great restaurants within walking distance to the hotel, should you not want to walk that far.
St. Martenslane - definitely a hip hotel and definitely worth a stay if you're in Maastricht.

Nice place to stay for a weekend-trip to Maastricht. Close to the central train station and 15minutes to the center, the shopping area and the 'old town'

Location was excellent! The room was clean and spatious. The design element was really beautiful. Well worth a stay. Would advise and will definately go back next time. It might me a bit overpriced though but I guess for one night the price quality ratio is ok.

Stayed on a Friday night in one of the top floor rooms, having heard much about various other Hip Hotels and read some positive reviews on here. Slightly disappointed...

This hotel sits very close by the railway station so is conveniently located if you need to transport luggage, but a 15 minute walk from the old city (which is where most people will want to head to).

Check is across the road at the Townhouse Design Hotel, where you are handed a key (to access the Hip Hotel building) and keycard (to access your room) and can have breakfast for 17 Euros per person - seemingly expensive, but par for the course when compared to other hotels in the city.

The bathroom was functional yet sparse - not a great shower (attachment over quite a small bath), no toiletries (dispensers instead) and a lack of proper towels (both real and paper!).

The room itself basically houses a framed double bed (which was comfortable) with a "bar" and stools at the foot and a small TV hanging from the frame. A small closet is also built into the frame, and that's pretty much it. There are controls by the head of the bed allowing you to change the lighting colour scheme in terms of brightness and intensity in shades of red/pink. Activating these options though leads to a constant and rather annoying humming sound - kind of defeats the purpose if you're trying to set a relaxed/romantic mood. That and the control panel is right by where you rest your head... fine, if you can ignore the annoying blue LEDs that stay on through the night - an item of clothing hung over these solved the problem easily enough. The free standing safe on the floor was a laughable idea...

So, comfortable enough to sleep in, but not a place you'd spend any time in otherwise.

- noisy room, loud closing system of the doors and next to the garage is not peaceful and all
- no cleaning of the room nor making the bed
- too expensive for this room 010
- basic bathroom
- handy to have a safe that is not built in but easy to carry out...
- reasonable breakfast
It would be ok for the correct price,
Room 010 is overpriced, had much Better trendy hotels for less money
