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.

Each room inside the hotel is equipped with all the essentials and features anywhere between one to four comfy beds, covered with hypoallergenic linen.

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.

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.

This central five-room 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 Haas op het Vrijthof has still seen its fair share of history and was constructed in the 1920s according to principles drawn from Art Nouveau architecture. Today, Haas op de Vrijthof contains three large guest rooms and two spacious suites that are ideal for romantic getaways or city breaks with friends.
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.
