I stayed 2 nights at the D'orangerie Hotel in Maastricht last weekend and here are my comments:
A) Coffee/tea facilities available (but no teaspoon provided)
C) Hair dryer
D) Good location - Just 2 to 3 mins walk to the centre/shops
F) Bus stop a stone's throw away (but you don't need the bus I guess)
G) Friendly front-office staff
H) Charming small hotel
A) Room can be a little stuffy in the summer despite the temperature around 22 degrees during the day.
B) Room facing small street can be noisy as it's facing a coffee-shop. People tend to hang out there till the early morning. Ask for a room facing the courtyard.
C) Bed a little soft
D) Room a little to the small side (we had the double bedroom)
In May 2008, I stayed at the Hotel d'Orangerie for two nights. I chose to stay here primarily because I had read good things about its location. Also, its price is reasonable for the city of Maastricht.
The hotel building itself is in historic premises dating back to 1752. Also, many of the hotel furnishings are from another era. So, if you are one of those people who enjoy antique furnishings, you will love staying here. Some of the antique furnishings were a little difficult to use -- such as the lock on the door. Nevertheless, the Old World nature of the furnishings added to the special atmosphere of Maastricht.
My room did have an in-room safe which I think is always a plus.
The service at this small hotel (only 22 rooms) is very personable. There is a small bar/restaurant connected to the reception area. I did not see anyone eating at the restaurant (there are many choices for food in Maastricht), but I did enjoy a drink at the bar and a chat with the receptionist/bartender and a few patrons.
I did have the breakfast buffet at the hotel on both days of my stay. Excellent quality and selection! In particular, I liked the selection of bread and cheeses. Also, the fine china and silverware were consistent with the Old World charm of the hotel.
Unique Quality: Old World charm -- antique furnishings and atmosphere.
Directions: Between the River Maas and the Markt
I think the hotel is special for it's a rather small hotel (with about 30 rooms), which gives the place a cosy atmosphere. Its charm is exactly that: because the place is like this people are more informal and one quickly will get up to meet other hotelguests. The groundfloor contains several nicely decorated small rooms - that is a brasserie, where you can try local specialties, a small reception room and a bar, where you can get Limburgian beer. The rooms are quite unique, t.i. they are all totaly different qua decoration.
Unique Quality: the good thing about the hotel is that is situated in the heart of the city, nearly next to the market squair, and yet one cant hear all the noise of partypeople for it is situated in a small street, without loud pubs. The hotel has also its own parking facilities.
