“New modern hotel in a good location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

I stayed here for 2 nights on a business trip.
The hotel seems brand new and is nicely decorated. Lobby bar, breakfast room and guest rooms are all stylish, clean and nice. The service was friendly and they served a great breakfast. The main market place is only 100 meters away. Could recommend for both business and pleasure.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

The hotel building was a former monastery but it's renovated and keeping the beautiful staircases, tiles which you can see from old days but refurnish in good condition. The ceiling is high, good space in the room, good support mattress. I love the rain shower and the Nespresso coffee machine in the room. There is an underground parking which costs 10euro per day. There are plenty of restaurants and bars in the center and quite some choices of food, such as Meditterean, Thai, Japanese food.....etc. The hotel is located in the center but at a quiet street. The front desk personnel are friendly and when we checked out, they offered us bottles of water and cookies for our on the way to drive back to our home town, what an excellent service! I certainly recommend this hotel to my friends.

Newly opened, this former convent is a lovely hotel in the centre of Sittard. Gorgeous rooms, brilliant showers and great breakfasts made this an excellent hotel. Free very high speed wifi also great. Very close also to centre of Sittard where there is lots of nice bars and restaurants. Will certainly be back

Very stylish, clean and quiet with friendly, helpful staff. Only metres from the town square with lots of bars and restaurants. The hotel is a converted convent and the decor has an ecclesiastical theme. A great combination of modern and old. The hotel is new and there were not many guests but it will not be long before many people use this excellent hotel. Only 15 minutes walk from the train station and almost on the town square it is well situated.

Hotel Merici Sittard is an unusual accommodation, as the 4* hotel is established in a beautifully renovated cloister in the beating heart of Sittard. The sounds of the city barely permeate the thick walls of the former Company of St. Ursula Cloister. The name 'Merici' comes from the founder of the convent order: Angela de Merici. Between 1843 and 1946 girls were schooled in the hotel's adjoining buildings. Merici is one of the seven special monuments in the Cloister Quarter.Every morning, Hotel Merici serves a delicious breakfast buffet in the former refectory with live front show cooking. A romantic picnic hamper or a practical lunch box can also be ordered on request. The hotel operates in accordance with the Green Key Label, an international hallmark. Hotel Merici strives for a healthy environment, and opts for the use of sustainable products and the employment of energy saving measures. As such, organic, fairtrade and regional products are used wherever possible.The #a la carte restaurant Wine & Dine serves heavenly dishes, and is just 75 m from the hotel. The restaurant has an intimate outdoor terrace on the atmospheric and historic market square. It is also possible to have a drink and a small bite in the hotel's lounge & bar. After a lovely day you can enjoy a wonderful slumber in hotel rooms comprising of harmonious furnishings. All rooms are equipped with airconditioning, free WI-FI, excellent beds, LCD flat-screen TV, safe, Nespresso coffee facilities and a spacious bathroom with rainshower and seperate toilet.

From the front of the hotel, you can easily walk to the Basilica, the Oude Markt and the pleasant shopping area. By train it will take you 40 minutes to reach the exuberant city of Maastricht. Sittard train station is a 10-minute walk from Hotel Merici. Roermond, Dusseldorf, Hasselt and Antwerp are also interesting cities to visit in the area. The German Eifel (low mountain range) or the Belgian Ardennen are wonderful places for walking, no matter the season. Snowworld Landgraaf is a great place to go skiing, while the Thermae 2000 in Valkenburg and Carolus Thermen in Aachen are a blessing for both body and soul. ... more   less
