“Loud thumping music until after 2 in the a.m.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Absolutely the smallest hotel room I have ever stayed in - cca 12m2, INCLUDING the bathroom. THe bathroom door, when opened, hits the bed! Closet that would just about fit a single skeleton. No other hooks or surfaces to lay your belongings down, except the said closet and one nightstand. That's right. Only one.
The entire ´hotel´ area (stairs, elevator, room) was smelly. Old carpet or something. Around 11p.m. we were unpleasantly surprised by loud thumping music. Not sure where it came from, but the pub on the ground floor had a few PA speakers and a subwoofer which might have been the source.
Consider this - we were on the 4th floor! I cannot believe anyone on the lower floors could sleep with that kind of noise. If noise bothers you, stay away. I know I will.
One more things - despite the reservation, nobody bothered to turn on the heating, so we had to wait 30minutes for the miniscule room to warm up. Unfortunately, one of us had a cold, and this did not help.
Now for the good - location is smack downtown. The place was clean, despite the smell. Breakfast buffet was decent. Service was fair, people nice. Another bizarre detail: the front desk is some 80 cm wide. Obviously, the hotel part was an afterthought.
Hotel parking is non-existant - have to drive 5min to a public, open space parking that will cost you cca 9,50 EUR per day. The drive back to the hotel took 20 minutes, taking a different route. Inconvenient.

Room Tip: As high as possible and away from the square.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

My partner and i stayed two nights at this hotel and found it to be a pleasant stay, the room was clean, staff were helpful and friendly and the breakfast was good. The hotel is at the centre of Maastricht, within easy distance of all the sights and the Christmas market was very close.

The overall standard was very good and at a reasonable price, the food in the downstairs restaurant was also very good. We will stay at this hotel again on visiting Maastricht.

The hotel is situated above a restaurant which, incidently, was quite good. The location was on tyhe main square of the city. Parking was several blocks away, but very reasonable. The room was large enough for three. The beds were rather soft. The internet was good. Breakfast was tasty. The price was very good.

Our family of 4 stayed in two rooms for one night. We were very pleasantly surprised at the quality and cleanliness of the room (especially given the price). Our original concern before arriving was that there would be no en-suite, but in fact the bathroom was smallish - but lovely.

My guess is that our rooms were newly refurbished in the past couple of years.

The hotel bar and restaurant are ideally situated for taking some idle time to watch the world go by - or at least the numerous push-bikes as the sun goes down across the market square.

We decided to eat at the hotel restaurant for our evening meal - which was truly great value for money. Our 13 year old daughter proudly managed the massive (you've got to see it to believe it) portion of spare ribs! As a reward, the waiter brought her an ice cream dessert with mini firework / candle. We all had different meals - and each of us was truly pleased.
Top that with very friendly service and lovely view across the market square - and you have the ingredients for a great meal and stay in Maastricht!

The Hotel is situated on the Maart square and is an ideal location.The river is situated only a block away and lots of stores for shopping. The hotel is very old a bit on the shabby side. The room was very small and our room was located on the alley side (deffinately not the best view and a lot of outside noise in the evening. There is no airconditioning ( or screens on the windows) so you may want to consider this if traveling in the warmer months. The breakfast buffet was lovely and with several nice choices. The room was clean and the hotel staff friendly and helpful ( if you are lucky enough to get someone who speaks good English)

First the good points: the location is excellent, right next to the old city on the major market square and the rooms are clean. Now the critique: the hotel is really a pub with several floors of rooms above, with access almost through the kitchen. As a result, don't count on a quiet, restful stay. Rooms are small to the extent of being a tight fit; staff are not very friendly; and the breakfast looks better than it tastes. It's a fair walk to the railway station, though it can be done if you don't mind dragging a suitcase over mostly cobbled sidewalks. If price is your main concern, this hotel may be for you. If you want a little comfort and peace and quite, look elsewhere.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms at the front or on a low floor.
