We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of August. The hotel is well placed within the city and close to the station and city centre.
The rooms are are clean and adequate for a short break. There is no luxury but more of a budget hotel.

Breakfast as expected is of the continental variety however is very limited 2 cold meats and cheeses. No cereal or egg etc.

Service. The level if service in this hotel is the thing that lets it down, you are left with a feeling that you the customer are nothing more than an inconvenience to the staff.
At breakfast we arrived slightly later but still 40 minutes before breakfast ended. We had to ask for clean plates, coffee bread, and cold meats. All of these requests were met with moans and groans from the server who in the ended walked around tutting and banging dishes.

On returning to the bar that evening at around 10pm we stood at the bar to have a drink, the bar man was talking to his friends around the corner. We gave him a friendly wave to show we were waiting.
After 5 minutes we had not been acknowledged and went and asked if we could have a couple drinks, a further 5 minutes passed and still no service we this time asked if the bar was closed and then got served.

Although this was a budget hotel the accommodation was of a standard we expected for the price paid however the customer service was extremely poor and I would not recommend staying here.

I did not book this place but those whom I was with did instead. I think if I had been making the booking I would not have - due to it being above a bar, and that would indeed have been a wise move. It must be said that the food and drink in the bar were good, the waiter was very pleasant and helpful, the menu is nice, and there was even a free welcome drink. Unfortunately there were also a welcoming party in the bathroom in the shape of a number of dead flies and crawling insects. The floors were a little rough. The electrical connections were held together with tape. In terms of noise, there were many pensioners outside laughing and shouting into the night, and given it was very hot it was not the kind of evening you could close the windows. Also, I would advise those with mobility issues that the stairs to the rooms are very steep, with small steps and not easy to manoeuvre.

De Poshoorn is located on a small square, near the bridge to the city center (5 mins) and station (4 min). You can sit outside on the terrace or inside the old cafe. We ordered soup and that was a very good choice. Fresh made vegatable soup with enough veggies, wonderful meat and meatballs. The onion soup was very French and perhaps even better (fresh bread on side).
Tomato soup: perfect. Compliments, my friends from De Poshoorn.
There were 5 beers on tap, so also the fresh liquids were well-done!

Hotel-Cafe de Poshoorn is a beautiful property located near the city center and station. I stayed here for just three days to attend a meeting in the city and was very happy to book this accommodation. My stay was very comfortable and relaxing. Room which I got was very clean, spacious and had all the things of comfort. Bed was quite comfortable and pillows were large. Breakfast was amazing and the variety they included in every meal was outstanding. Highly recommended.

The Poshoorn in Maastricht does not go out of its way to attract foreign visitors. The website is only in Dutch and I could only find it on one booking site. This is a pity as it is a good budget option well located between the station and the centre. You check in in the lively, atmospheric bar which has a good beer selection and also serves light meals. You then ascend a traditional Dutch staircase which means steep, narrow and not for the faint hearted. The rooms are small and simple but very clean and perfectly adequate. I had room no.5 at the back which was very quiet. Breakfast (optional) is the usual assortment of breads with ham, cheese and spreads plus orange juice. Coffee good and strong. I recommend this hotel and would stay there again. Beer travellers should note that the descent of the staircase should only be attempted while sober.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quiet

We stayed 2 nights in De Poshoorn pub/hotel last week. We were on the top floor so it was quiet. Paid 70 euros per night for a double room with en suite. I think this is good value in Maastricht. The room was quite small, with twin beds which were very comfortable. The bedding was new. We didn't have breakfast because we would rather lie in on holiday.
The hotel has a good location near the city centre and train station and the staff were really nice. The bar downstairs is great for both meals and an extensive range of local and Belgian beers.
Only complaint, they didn't have a hairdryer.
