Situated steps away from the station, Townhouse Designhotel Maastricht is really a red bricked-facade, including a quirky interior. The accommodation has a focus on hospitality as well as welcomes a soup on arrival, as well as a complimentary nightcap and goodies at breakfast every morning. Here’s a review of considering the Townhouse Designhotel Maastricht…
If you’ve never heard of the pretty city of Maastricht, then now's time for you to plan a visit! Home to highlights such as a red church tower which is so painted so as to preserve the soft stone and countless underground tunnels dating back the 17th-century, Maastricht is even the place to find countless hilly trails (fantastic inside a country like the Netherlands which is predominantly flat).
Checking In: Townhouse Designhotel Maastricht Review
Located in the ever-so-trendy Wyck-Ceramique district from the city, Townhouse Designhotel is close to plenty of bars, restaurants, and independent shops. If you’re after some history, then your historic heart of the city is simply a ten-minute walk away, across the glittering waters of the river.
If there’s something that the Townhouse Designhotel Maastricht prides itself on, it’s customer service. In the get-go, the team are accommodating and friendly. There are even sweets on the counter and comfortable chairs dotted round the reception desk to help you feel more at home.
During the day time, a relaxed approach implies that pastries and cakes can be found throughout the day and payment is dependant on an honesty bar approach. Actually, the remainder of Maastricht is well-known for its customer-service based approach and 80% from the hotels in Maastricht are rated four-star, including Townhouse Maastricht!
The Room at Townhouse Maastricht
Our room was clean, comfortable, and much bigger than I had been expecting. Upon arrival, i was greeted by a welcome glass of prosecco and were pleased to see numerous books stacked on the beside tables. Decor was light, bright, and pretty ‘Insta-friendly’.
Amenities included a TV, speedy WiFi, wide windows, and ample desk space. One of the most interesting quirks from the room was to be located within the bathroom. After all, a radio might be found here where you could be a musician when you showered!
Breakfast was served within the open-plan living space and made up of one of the best breakfast buffets I’ve ever been lucky enough to sample. Think several types of juices, countless tiny pastries, breakfast cereals, hot dishes, the works! As we were eating, someone came around with freshly baked local cakes and ‘healthy’ mini smoothie shots- a lovely touch!
Things to complete near Townhouse Maastricht
Thanks to its position close to the station, you won’t have to carry your luggage for a lot just before checking in. Consequently, you’ll soon end up free to explore what is often dubbed ‘the most amazing city within the Netherlands’ provides:
Boekhandel Dominicanen: One of the most beautiful churches in the Netherlands, if not all of Europe, are available in the type of Boekhandel Dominicanen. Located within a former Dominician church, shelves filled with books grace all reachable wall space, while centuries-old frescoes cover the ceilings.
Toscanella Apuana Pizza: Freshly baked with lashings of cheese to complement, I can only describe the pizza as Toscana as the best pizza I’ve ever endured. Ever. Visit on your own and you’ll soon realize that the food inside is better still compared to scents ever-wafting from the door. However, be prepared to wait some time for the order- the area gets pretty busy pretty quickly!
Bread and Delicious: For fans of all things sweet and patisserie-related, Bread & Delicious is first rate. Whether you want to simply sip on an espresso with friends, or are looking to try the regional speciality of ‘Vlaai,’ this coffee shop offers all this and much more.
Thank you so much to Maastricht Marketing and to Townhouse Designhotel for hosting myself and my boyfriend during our stay in probably the most Southerly Dutch city. We loved every moment and will be referring to our stay for many years. Of course, all opinions, photos, words, etc are my own!
