The Hotel Dis is a charming boutique hotel ideally located (at least for us) in the no-less-charming city of Maasricht, Netherlands. We were there for a wedding and the hotel had been arranged for us and friends by the bride's family. Like many such European hotels, its entrance is unprepossessing and you'd walk right by it if you weren't looking for it.
Inside, it is a different story. It has perhaps half a dozen rooms (we didn't count) situated on 3 storeys up a fairly narrow, semi-steep stairway. The stairs were a bit of a challenge with luggage but we managed.
The building is clearly an old one, well refurbished. The view we had was lovely - over the courtyard garden and on a level with the rooftops of Maastricht which were, in themselves, charming (photos included). The rooms had slightly creaky wooden floors, might have been a bit disturbing to those below (we didn't ask) but, since we were on the top floor, we were fine. They were well-appointed and we needed nothing.
The service was excellent, and the complimentary breakfast, tasty. The room through which one passes to the dining room is a mini art gallery.
What we liked most was that it is at the intersection of 4 streets but with little traffic and, in an island in the middle of the intersection is one of those lovely little European outdoor spaces with tables and chairs looked after by the lovely (and worth a visit) little restaurant, Lure, just across a narrow street. One can sit out and have a light meal, a beer (excellent local brews) and feel like a native. We sat and watched as groups on young(ish) 'Maastichians' met, visited, and the size of the groups at adjacent tables grew and diminished as people came and went.
The hotel is a short walk from everywhere you'd want to go in Maastricht and a nice quiet place to come back to after a day of exploring.
It's not the Hyatt so don't look for pool, spa or fitness room.
We'd stay there again.
