Hotels in Maastricht

Compact and cultural, Maastricht is a beautiful and lively city that is sure to impress event the most jaded of weekend breakers. There are Roman and Spanish ruins to intrigue history buffs, art galleries and theatres for culture vultures, and excellent eateries to tempt travelling foodies. With so much to see, do, and discover, there’s no point in waiting: book your hotel in Maastricht today.

Maastricht might be small, but it definitely punches above its weight in terms of things to do. It’s one of the oldest cities in Holland, with charming cobbled streets lined with fantastic shops. When the sun sets the city’s bars come to life: it is a university town, after all, and Maastricht’s student body definitely knows how to party.

Maastricht is surprisingly multicultural and cosmopolitan, thanks in part to the university. Students from all over the world call the city home. Don’t worry if you don’t speak Dutch. Most people are happy to chat in English.

Most of the activity in Maastricht takes place on the West Bank of the River Maas. This is the best part of town to stay in if you like to be in the heart of the action. The East Bank of the river is quieter, although there are a couple of attractions such as the Bonnefanten Museum of fine art. The train station is also on the east bank, so if you’re planning a quick escape by rail hotels here might be slightly more convenient.

Then again, you don’t need to worry too much about location. Maastricht is designed with pedestrians in mind, and is small enough to explore on foot. The city centre is mostly pedestrian only, so pack your walking shoes. It’s easy to get from the West to the East bank, either by walking across the pretty St Servaas Brug or the more modern JFK Bridge.
