The Emauspoort is a real find. It sits right behind the city's major basilica and main square in a block of atmospheric buildings. The staff are welcoming, the breakfast is good, and the hotel's interior courtyard is a delightful place to relax in after a day of sightseeing. The price is very reasonable given the hotel's undeniable charms.
Please don't think of this little gem as a full-service hotel, however, or you will be slightly disappointed. If you are sitting in the lobby at 10 p.m. the staff asks you politely to leave so they can lock up the room. The lobby bar was closed on Sunday and Monday nights, the nights of my visit, or perhaps I needed to ask at the front desk for bar service--I wasn't sure which was the case and I wasn't offered a drink as I sat working in the lobby. It is not possible to get a wake-up call prior to 7 a.m., and the rooms have no alarm clocks or newspapers in the morning. I needed to ask for a tiny shampoo packet the second day, which was cheerfully supplied (either the housekeepers had overlooked leaving me a new packet or the original, miniscule packet was intended to last for two nights). These aren't necessarily problems: they're simply evidence that the owners aren't trying to run a full-service hotel. Instead, if you think of the Emauspoort as a large (25 room) and comfortable bed-and-breakfast in historic buildings, you will be in the proper frame of mind to enjoy this charming establishment.
