We were on our way back from a hiking holiday in the Ardennen (Belgium) but we chose to stop for a day in Maastricht. This hotel is related to the city's university and therefore has a free parking at the university site (a tip). We booked at the very last minute and got the Olive Room, a green tinted room with a beautiful bathroom with surprisingly an old claw foot soaker tub. I've stayed there before at one of the attic rooms that was spacious. It reminds me of staying in Oxford dorm (in a good way). Good breakfast served, staying there is like staying in one of those beautiful old mansions in style. Who needs new hotel's ambience?

This is a very charming property, the breakfast is not included and a bit pricey. But for it was easier to eat there as any resturant
was a 10 minute walk.........and I have to drink my coffee quickly in the morning! The staff was OK. the stairs are tricky, and we were on the 3rd floor.
Maastricht is a pretty city, especially in the historic section, but it is tricky finding your way around. Many wonderful resturants around. The boat trip down to the caves is well worth the small price and time. I'm surprised more Americans haven't found this city

For a long-term stay, I recommend staying in one of the apartments that the Hotel les Charmes manages. Our oldest daughter, my sister, and I stayed there in November. The rooms (two apartments and a studio) are located above the Universiteit of Maastricht's law school bookstore, around the corner from the Hotel les Charmes itself. The building, like so many in this beautiful city, is seventeenth century, with an amazing hanging spiral staircase that reached to the third floor. We were welcomed with a lovely bouquet of flowers that remained fresh all week. We had a kitchen with a gas cooktop, a living room, bathroom with a shower, and a cozy bedroom with white down comforters accessed by a very steep staircase (we had to climb down it backwards). The furnishings were antique and/or "vintage chic". Marco, the hotel owner/manager, was kind and helpful, as were his front office staff.
There are many 'brown cafes' nearby that are cozy and welcoming, many of which serve local Limburg specialties from menus in the local Mestreech dialect. Also, this apartment is in the Jekerkwartier, and you will be able to find the old walls nearby and the quiet little Jeker. Great location. We walked the whole week we were there, and over to Sint Pietersberg <sp> and the Belgian village of Kanne (lovely countryside) . We were in Maastricht during two of the most wonderful events . On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, there is a huge Carnival kick-off in the Vrithof. Costumed krewes, beer gardens, and merrymaking went on all day and into the wee hours. We watched the 'drunken bands ' winding their way down our cobblestone street from our windows. I felt as if we were transported back four hundred years that night. With the city's own, we also welcomed Sint Nikolaas and his Zwarte Piets as they arrived by boat on the River Maas. My husband visited our son at UM in December and the Winterland was set up, including a lovely ice rink on the Vrithof and the Christmas markets.

We spend a weekend in Maastricht during the busiest period of the year (art fair Tefaf). This hotel however did not raise its prices (like many other hotels did). It is great value for large rooms. It is in a quiet neigbourhood but a few steps away from all the restaurants, bars, points of interest and shops.
The breakfast was charming, served at your table in antique surrounding.
We can recommend this place!

Stayed at the les charmes in November on a trip through the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. The les Charmes is a good choice in Maastricht for it's location, value and friendly staff. The rooms are spacious with a very good shower (at least ours was). The hotel is located in a 300 year old home, so do not expect luxury, expect simple European charm. Breakfast was good and typical Dutch. The staff was warm and welcoming and was there to help with tourist info. The town of Maastricht itself probably will not be on many people's agenda, but for a central location to dicover the Ardennes and western Germany (as well as the Limburg province of the Netherlands) it is a good place to set up a base.
