Very friendly courteous helpful staff. Spacious (!) airy well appointed room. Excellent shower.
View from our room was not good but probably just as well as it meant we were sheltered from the noise of the square (nice quiet room).

If you park nearby they will send you to the pay car park 100+ metres away.
If you ask they will carry your cases up the steep narrow staircase.
The room was beautifully appointed. If you return after 11.00pm (?) you have to enter through the back door in an alley!
There are no facilities except the room & the bar downstairs. Breakfast was just like entering a bar, but was just about OK.
For the price this was an expensive stay but a nice room & very central for the Vrijthof!

Britannique Hotel is right above the Brasserie Britannique, which you need to enter the restaurant and ask the staff there to check-in for you. Staff are very friendly, and they can help to bring lugguage to your room as there's no lift available. Hotel location is superb, right at the centre of Vrijhof, millions of restaurants and shops there. Room itself is spacious, clean, bathroom is well equipped with everything you need like a Loccitane bath set. There're bottles of welcome mineral water, coffee/tea/kettle all available for free.
Regarding sightseeing, you can go to VVV to reserve local tour to St Pietersberg's caves/Cruise combo, please remember to "double" reconfirm tour guide in your language. We did book english tour however ended up the tour guide can only speak Dutch! Unlucky us ! But anyhow, the cave is worth visiting if you are not afraid of darkness. It's exciting !
Another must-go is the "Selexyz Dominicanen" bookstore near the hotel. Its the most beautiful bookstore in the world.
For breakfast/lunch/tea, there's "La Place" foodcourt in V&D department store, lots of variety of food to choose from. Nice pick and reasonably priced.

Room Tip: Upper floor facing the backyard might be more quiet, but no lift.

Funny place, virtually no signage out front, just tables. Check in is at the bar. Staff very friendly and helpful. Free parking just down the street, a big plus. Walking up to the room seemed like a very old fashioned hotel but open the room door and you're in a nice large groovy room. Contrast!!
Walking distance to everything you want in Maastricht.

Two problems though. You cannot drive directly to front of hotel, need to tote around 50 meters. Second problem is no elevator. Coming from Australia we are each over 20 kg luggage and Dutch stairs are steep. Fortunately one of the staff offered to carry one bag.

We stayed in this hotel at the end of June for the Andre' Rieu concert and it was so convenient, just looks right unto the Vrijthof Square. We had the room with the bath in the middle and our friends were in the one immediately below us. Both rooms were very spacious and extremely clean. The beds were large and very comfortable. We had one breakfast from the buffet and ate dinner on one evening - both meals were very good. For anyone visiting Maastricht for the concert, this is an excellent base,however, because of the stairs to the rooms, it would not be suitable for anyone with walking difficulties. This fact aside, we would have no hesitation in recommending the Britannique.

Room Tip: Rooms 4 and 6 have excellent views of the Vrijthof Square.

The hotel is located above the restaurant, right on the Vrijthof square. Since it is an old building, there is no elevator, but the staff helped us carry our bags upstairs.

The room we had was overlooking the Vrijthof square, and it was a lovely spacious rooms. The bathroom is through two large doors, with a big bath and a nice shower.

Enjoyed the stay here, would love to come here again.

Very friendly staff, clean spacious room with very comfortable bed and bath in the middle of the room, nr6 is the only room with this feature. Didn't try the breakfast, but the buffet looked ok. We had a great honeymoon weekend here.
