Home to some of the oldest landmarks in the Netherlands, not to mention a bustling student community, Maastricht is an under-explored Dutch city with plenty to offer culturally curious travellers. Even though it is smaller than some more northerly Dutch cities, there are some truly excellent Airbnb options available in Maastricht.

Once inside, guests can relax on a comfy sofa or cook their own meals in the studio’s well-equipped kitchen. The listing also features space for dining or work and an en-suite bathroom with a shower.

Decorated in a minimalist style with touches of class, this spacious, peaceful apartment is found on the third floor of a larger residence occupied by the listing’s hosts. The main apartment can accommodate two guests, with plenty of space for rest and relaxation. Groups of three or four may also reserve spots at this Airbnb, as it features an additional, somewhat less private, but nonetheless cosy, bedroom, which is located on a mezzanine above the house’s living room. Both lodgings are fitted with all the essentials and guests have access to cable TV, a washing machine and a kitchen kitted out with everything you’ll need.

Located in a peaceful neighbourhood within easy reach of the hustle and bustle of Maastricht’s centre, this delightful Airbnb stands inside a historic townhouse from the turn of the 20th century. As it features a living room with a sofa bed, private bedroom and kitchen, there’s enough space for two or three guests to stay comfortably at the apartment. Each room is decorated with stylish yet modest furniture and artwork, adding another welcome layer of style to the apartment’s overall vibe. Though there’s a parking spot available nearby, it is unlikely that guests will need to travel by car while in Maastricht, considering the apartment’s proximity to Vrijthof Square and the many historic sites that converge around the plaza.

Offering the kind of comfort and luxury that you would expect from a boutique hotel, this stunning Airbnb listing is located inside an equally charming townhouse near Vrijthof Square that matches perfectly with its historic surroundings. Though there’s only one bedroom available, it is possible for more guests to stay at this listing, as its hosts will gladly change the sleeping arrangement to accommodate groups of three or four by adding extra beds. Aside from the basics, guests also have access to an incredible library fitted with an open fireplace and comfy leather chairs.

As it is quite possibly the only Airbnb listing in Maastricht (or the surrounding province of Limburg, for that matter) with its very own Jacuzzi, this three-storey house will likely appeal to guests who enjoy an added measure of luxury when travelling. The aforementioned Jacuzzi is located in the house’s cellar, whereas its living room, bedroom and kitchen are spread over its ground level and first floor. Though there’s only one double bedroom available, additional guests are welcome to stay on a comfy sofa bed, found in the listing’s living room. Due to its central location and extensive facilities, the house makes for an ideal home-away-from-home for small groups of travellers in Maastricht and stands within walking distance from many major landmarks.
