I've had the pleasure to stay in the suite (room 214). Beautiful 2 story room with two balconies facing the Maas river. Room was excellent clean, except for the little sink in the toilet which was covered with chalk. Bed was very spacy and comfy. Room had two flatscreen televisions, a DVD player, a Senseo coffee machine with coffee pads and a hot water kettle for making tea. Like with most hotels the airconditioner even at its coldest setting could not cool the room well enough.
The location of the hotel is very nice. The city center is right accross the Maas river, just a 10 minute walk away. It is fairly easy to reach the hotel by car. There are a lot of roadworks going on in the access roads towards Maastricht, so you might face a little challenge there. It's also within walking range from the Maastricht train station. Parking costs 22 euro per night for a spot in the closed off Q-Park garage next to the hotel (23 euro for non hotel visitors).
Breakfast was insanely high priced at 26 euro a person. That's really outrageous for a breakfast! There was a good choice of bread and food and the quality was good, but still this price for just a breakfast is a ripoff. There are many many bars and restaurants within minutes of walking distance where you can get a breakfast for much less money. Also around the corner is an Albert Heijn supermarket.
Another thing to be ashamed off for the hotel manager is to charge money for internet access. That's really not done anymore in 2013. Prices for it are quite high too.
