“Upmarket B&B in delightful Maastricht”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2012

Stayed for a short Spring break in this hotel, conveniently tucked away in a residential area but only a stone’s throw away from the sights of Maastricht. This is a delightful ‘living’ city not yet discovered by the mass tourist market. The Hotel Dis is situated in a beautiful old building – don’t be surprised – there’s no lift and the floors do creak! A lavish buffet breakfast is served in the dining room (though annoyingly is not included in the room rate). Our room on the second floor (Americans read 3rd) was well-furnished, had very comfy beds and a small bathroom – surprisingly for a ‘design hotel’ the only case of design-over-practicality was the shower which splashes water abundantly onto the bathroom floor. If coming by car, be sure to reserve a secure parking space located maybe 30 meters from the hotel - the hotel is easy to find despite Maastricht's one-way systems. James and his team make great hosts, friendly and informative with plenty of local dining tips. One downside is, that whilst marketed as a hotel, the place has more of a feel of an upmarket B&B as there are no public rooms; the beautiful rear courtyard (a key factor in selecting this hotel) was under renovations during our visit and could have been mentioned on the website – for the prices advertised, I expected a little more. Nevertheless, this remains probably one of the smartest small hostelries in Maastricht.

Starting with a beautiful location on a cobbled street, above an art gallery with a cute little square across the road we had high expectations of this hotel and we werent disappointed.
Once you get over the three flights of narrow stairs, everything else about the hotel was perfect. The rooms were big and though perhaps a little tired, they had real charm and character.
The breakfast was one of the best i have had in any hotel, quality ingredients in a beautiful setting with lots of coffee!
Our host gave us a lot of suggestions of things to do and see and great restaurants to eat at. If we return to Maastricht, we will definitely be returning to Hotel Dis.

We had a short weekend break in Maastricht traveling as 2 couples. The rooms are spacious and nice, bathrooms are very good (we had the one with walk-in shower) but the beds are in no good condition. Both our friends and we had the same complaint: terrible mattresses and cushions! Provided this issue is properly addressed, Dis hotel could be rated as very good. Our nightly unease was however quickly forgotten thanks to a lavish breakfast buffet accompanied by friendly service. The hotel is in a very quiet location in the old city center near to a guarded parking lot. As the hotel was very quiet, we got upgraded to the 2 biggest rooms which was a very nice gesture.

For carnival in Maastricht we stayed in Galerie Hotel Dis. This hotel is in the building that dates from the early 17th century!! It's located in a quiet street in the heart of Maastricht. The staff was friendly, the atmosphere was relaxed and the central location was ideal. Breakfast was served in a former beer brewery from the 17th century. On the ground floor of the hotel there's an art gallery with varied exhibitions of contemporary art!! In the room we have bathroom with bathtub, separate toilets, LCD television, free wireless Internet, minibar and a safe. The room was equipped with contemporary furniture and lots of art. Perhaps we'll come back here someday.

I recently had a business trip to Maastricht. As I was presenting a paper at a conference, my wife made the trip to Europe with me. She enpicked up with a severe gastric bug in France before arriving in Maastricht. Except for a couple of restaurants within a block of the hotel, she never saw anythig but the hotel room. The owner, James, couldn't have beenmore accomodatng. After she declined maid service, James came to the room to find out what he might be able to do to make her (our) stay more comfortable. He was helpful with pharmacy recommendation and directions, restaurant help and just general concern.
The hotel entry is, in fact, an art gallery. James was very welcoming when we arrived. Parking, while an extra charge, was relatively close by and quite secure. Our room was very spacious,very well appointed in an avant garde arty style. Breakfast was excellent. All in all, when I return to Maastricht, I WILL stay at Hotel Dis.

Great location for spending a few days in Maastricht. Only 5 minutes walk from main square with all the restaurants overlooking the square and the shopping streets are nearby. The hotel is in an lovely old part of Maastricht, almost next to part of the old city wall, it's in a tiny road with no parking anywhere nearby, the hotel has some reserved parking (which you have to pay for) so make sure you book a parking space with the hotel. We had a big bedroom, big comfortable bed, bathroom/shower OK but the shower splashed all over the floor. The room was good, clean but felt it lacked personality There is no lift, so if you don't do stairs it's not for you, although they are managable. Breakfast is in the back of the hotel in a vaulted room that lookes like a chapel, breakfast is extra, it's OK but quite expensive for a continental.
We were told by Dutch friends to go to a restaurant call Lieuwke, food was great and not expensive for the quality, only problem no English translations for the menu. I think they are trying to keep this good restaurant for the locals!
We booked a city tour with the tourist office,and recommend it, we really enjoyed the experience and would not have walked around these areas if we had been just by ourselves and it makes the visit so much more interesting.
All in all a good place to stay for a short visit to lovely Maastrict.

Room Tip: If you dont like stairs go for 1st floor

We spent two days in Maastricht staying at the centrally located Hotel Dis. If you are driving to the hotel, be sure to have detailed directions as 28 Tafelstraat is a very narrow street and not well marked. Once we found the hotel, the staff assisted us in taking our bags to our second floor room (room # 3). Yes, there is no elevator but the stairs are manageable. We reserved parking in one of the hotel’s reserved spots a short distance from the hotel as parking is scarce. The main floor gallery consists of three rooms of beautiful artwork that leads into the breakfast room. Our bedroom was large and faced the front of the building. Some traffic/street noise during the night so if you are a light sleeper, request a room toward the courtyard in the rear of the building. Nice size bathroom but the tub/shower has no door and water covers the floors when you shower. In addition, the tub is very high making it somewhat difficult to get in and out. Bed was comfortable and the artwork and furnishings appropriate. Room is showing some wear with one coat hook pulled out of the wall and the bathroom needing a fresh coat of paint. The best part of staying here was the location so close to the square and center of Maastricht. The original first city wall is literally feet from the hotel as well as restaurants, museums and shopping. Tourist information provides a great self guided walking tour of the historic district that is well worth the time. Enjoyed a delicious four course meal paired with lovely wines at Mes Amis, a short 5 minute walk from the hotel. While we did not eat breakfast at the hotel, be aware that most places do not open for breakfast until 10:00 am. Overall the Hotel Dis was a comfortable and convenient place to stay for our visit to historic Maastricht
