Like other larger cities in the Netherlands, Maastricht features many excellent hotels that offer everything from low-key budget accommodation to high-end services in stunning locations. Many of the best hotels in Maastricht are housed inside monumental buildings with long histories or are located near other sites related to the city’s past. While it might not have the party vibes of Amsterdam, checking in at one of these hotels offers the chance to experience another side of the Netherlands.
Kaboom Hotel Maastricht has 79 affordable guest rooms that are designed with budget travellers’ needs in mind. Even though it is cheaper than most other hotels in the city, Kaboom doesn’t shy away from high-quality service and maintains a warm, friendly sense of hospitality that’s at par with more expensive accommodation options in Maastricht. Each room inside the hotel is equipped with all the essentials and features anywhere between one to four comfy beds, covered with hypoallergenic linen. The hotel stands right next to Maastricht’s largest train station and is within walking distance from the city’s historic centre.
This trendy hotel stands on the northern side of Maastricht’s bustling historic centre and features a popular cocktail bar, where guests can enjoy an impressive selection of expertly crafted drinks alongside lunch or diner meals. There are 23 elegant yet simple guest rooms available inside the hotel that feature deluxe beds and other essentials. Although it is easy enough to spend evenings lounging inside Hotel Beez NO.106’s charming cocktail bar, the hotel is located close to many other bars, restaurants and pubs, making it perfect for anyone that’s eager to discover Maastricht’s nightlife.
Like other establishments located within Maastricht’s old town walls, the buildings that house Hotel au Quartier and its on-site restaurant Petit Bonheur have stood in the city for well over three centuries. Though many parts of the hotel are much older, its main facade was built during the 17th century and blends in seamlessly with its historic surroundings. Nowadays, this stunning age-old location contains 14 spacious guest rooms and apartment-style lodgings, equipped with everything travellers will need to enjoy their stay in Maastricht.
Urban Residences Maastricht offers guests the opportunity to relax, rest and work inside high-end suites or apartments that are designed to make residents feel right at home. These lodgings are tailored around independent travellers, who are searching for private, quieter spaces in central Maastricht and are perfect for anyone that prefers to explore cities at their own pace. There are several accommodation options available at Urban Residences Maastricht, ranging from 52m2 suites equipped with living rooms and large open-plan kitchens, to the hotel’s 73m² penthouse, which features a rooftop terrace. Families are also welcome at the hotel and can book spots at several larger suites, which can accommodate up to five guests.
Aside from basics like beds, closets and other mod-cons, guests at Townhouse Designhotel Maastricht can expect to find at least one piece of contemporary design or art inside their rooms. The hotel divides its room according to size and has space for solo travellers, couples and families. Guests are treated to either ice cream or a bowl of soup upon arrival and can enjoy several other inclusive facilities at the hotels, including a small fitness centre and laptop rental services. The hotel also offers additional deluxe upgrades and will deliver chilled bottles of champagne to rooms upon request.
This central hotel looks out directly onto Maastricht’s famous medieval Vrijthof plaza, which itself is surrounded by several other important historical and cultural sites. Though it isn’t quite as old as other buildings in the area, the mansion that houses Maison Haas Hustinx has still seen its fair share of history and was constructed in the 1920s according to principles drawn from art nouveau architecture. Today, Maison Haas Hustinx & Spa contains 17 rooms with modern amenities that are ideal for romantic getaways or city breaks with friends. A newly built annex contains a relaxing spa.
This award-winning, five-star design hotel stands inside a former monastery, in the heart of Maastricht’s historic centre, which dates back to the 15th century. Although the monastery has been renovated to meet modern demands, it still features many of its original elements, including exposed stone walls and arched passageways. There are 60 individually designed guest rooms inside Kruisherenhotel that are spread between the building’s cloister, gatekeeper’s lodge and another more contemporary site called Casa Nova. Aside from its stunning rooms, the hotel also features a high-end restaurant that’s housed inside the nave of a gothic church.
