“Nice little extras in hotel full of character”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

Quirky Hotel with lots of little extras, Coffee and cake in the afternoon, wine and olives in the evening served free of charge. Rooms nicely designed but a little small. I was there in 28c and a fan was placed in the room but it really needed to have air conditioning, especially in the elevator hallway which is totally glass in direct sunlight. Toiletries were good quality and it was the first hotel I had been given a complimentary fullsize toothpaste of 100ml along with 2 budget toothbrushes. Due to its cinema past there are various cinema antiquities in the hotel and a mini cinema room showing an evening program.

Hotel Location is a 2 minute walk from the Markt square (turn right as you leave hotel) with several bars and restaurants. A further 5 minutes will take you to the Vrijthof with an even larger variety of eating places. It is not identified on hotel website but you should park in the Bassin car park which is just 3/4 minutes walk away. When you leave the car park head into the pedestrian residential area (it is counter intuitive!) and take a left and then right and you will be on the Kleine Gracht just 50 metres below the hotel. Don't follow the road like I did or you will have a longer round trip. Parking is expensive at €23 as others have said but it is the closest.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back will hear the Church clock chiming the hours and quarters just 20 metres away

My wife and I spent two nights in this excellent hotel. service was good and location central to city centre and rail station. We arrived early and we were able to put our bags in a locked room until room was ready. Extras such as the free coffee & cake along with the free wine and olives were very acceptable. Everything was very clean & tidy. I found the hotel in the first place on tripAdvisor.

We stayed for two nights recently. We booked this as we wanted somewhere near to Andre Rieu concert and were not disappointed. We loved the quirkiness including the very large old cinema projector by the front desk. We were in the Chaplin room which was surprisingly large with a double bed and two singles and decorated with various Chaplin memorabilia. The bed was quite soft, but we had a very comfortable night. The room, although facing the road was very quiet. The bathroom was also a good size and no lack of toiletries, even full sized toothbrushes and paste should you have forgotten your own!
It was the little extras that set this place apart from large chains. The mints in the room, the sweets in the foyer and then there was the afternoon coffee and cake followed soon after by the wine and olives . You just helped yourself to the perfectly chilled wine out of the wine cabinet. Also the little gifts as we checked out. We will definitely try and get back here again -maybe for another concert. Sitting in the cafe in the nearby square watching all those people boarding the many coaches (we counted 17 with UK plates alone) with a 90 minute journey back to their hotels after the concert, we were so glad we made our own way over and stayed at the Mabi. It made for a very memorable weekend - and Maastricht is a wonderful town with great character.

Room Tip: Chaplin room is a large family sized room.

We stayed for three nights. Rooms were adequate and very clean. Location was great and the staff were really friendly. We borrowed the bikes which was really good and it was very nice to have compimentary coffee, tart, olives and wine late afternoon and early evening. Loved the hotel and loved the area. Will be back again.

We only stayed one night. Rooms were on the small side, but comfortable with very good beds. Even though breakfast was not included, complimentary tarts, pastry, coffees and teas were served in the late afternoon and wine and olives were served in the early evening. The location was pretty good and within walking distance to everything, although I think staying further south on the other side of the Grote Markt might have been more atmospheric.

What a lovely place. The service was excellent, the people friendly, but the best is the location: close enough to walk from Maastricht central station and very close to the centre of Maastricht. It was really close enough to be able to go back for a rest and then out into the streets again. We found the room comfortable and clean and loved the coffee and cake and the sundowner drink offered into the package.
