Botel: Inexpensive and surprisingly quiet

A Botel, as the name implies, is a boat that is used as a hotel. In a place like Maastricht, which apparently has a shortage of inexpensive hotel rooms, a Botel is a good way to provide additional accommodation on quite short notice and without any huge investment.

Of course the cabins are small, very small. Not all of them have en suite facilities, but some do. I paid 35 Euros per night for a cabin which did, in fact, have its own shower, toilet and wash basin. This was exactly half of what I would have paid for the least expensive hotel room on land.

Breakfast was not included, but was available for an extra 7 Euros and was well worth the price.

At the entrance was a sign in English saying that smoking and drug use were prohibited on board, and that there were smoke detectors throughout the boat. Anyone who did smoke and set off a fire alarm would be charged 300 Euros if the fire department came unnecessarily.

I had expected that the Botel would be crowded and loud, but this turned out not to be true. I don’t even think it was fully booked when I was there, which might have to do with the fact that foreigners can no longer legally buy cannabis or other soft drugs in the three southern provinces of the Netherlands, including Maastricht.

In any case, I found the Botel very pleasant. The staff and the other guests were all friendly, polite and quiet.

Another advantage was that the Botel was docked in a very convenient location, just 90 meters upstream from The High Bridge and only a short walk or bicycle ride to the historic center of the city.

Hotel de Dousberg: Cheap hostel with great facilities

This hotel and hostel is situated a little outside the centre of Maastricht, but it is very cheap. We stayed in a room with 2 beds for less than € 60. The room was very clean, and that is about all there is to mention about it. It is not a very nice room, but you have your own bathroom!

There are quite some facilities. Everyone staying in De Dousberg can go for a free swim in the inside pool that is nextdoor. Inside the hotel/hostel are tennis courts, a solarium and a nice bar. If you want to stay el cheapo in Maastricht this is where you have to go.

Hotel Boot Rijn-Maasvallei "Botel": Cheap Lodging

This is probably the cheapest place to stay in the city. Its a kind of hostal on a boat, that is situated on the River Maas. The good thing about it, is that it is situated near the city-center so that you wont have to use transportation. the bad thing about it is, that it is a place of minimum comfort. Some people find it quite a filthy place, others think of it as a noisy place. But if you are used to f.e. youth hostals its o.k.

BIG SWIMMINGPOOL!!!! Just jump off the boat and have a time.

La Colombe

The room has everything necessary for a short stay, say a couple of nights: beds, shower and toilet, small TV set, heating, alarm/radio they even fit a table with two chairs into this rather small room.
Most of the rooms overlooking Market Sq.

Veashartelt Palace

In the region of south Limburg you have the unique opportunity to stay at a castle. Near Maastricht you have the Vaeshartelt castle. A palace that is surrounded by some 7 hectares of English gardens. It has a long lane that leads to the castle. Inside there are many salons in classic style. The castle had once belong to King Willem the second. its a 17 th century castle where modern elements of architecture are mixed with the old.

All the rooms have their own colous. They have douches and a bureau. The castle has a terras. And the hotel has its own restaurant callled "de sterrenhemel"

Hotel Les Charmes

This hotel is a very small hotel. because it is so small the staff is very informal with the guests. The hotel is located in a 18 th century mansion. The interior is reastaurated and it looks now like the old days.

The rooms are differntly decorated and have a seat corner, a bathroom and a television and a lot of space

STAY OKAY: Hip Hostel in town

Nicest place I ever visited. Lovely rooms with a view of the river.
Great atmosphere and very safe and clean.
prices wise more expencive than avarage, but is wort it as everything is close by, and the Old City gates are just across the road.

Great veranda from the restaurant overlooking the river, where you can have your dinner, and relax with friends.
Great decor too.

Bed and Breakfast: Maastricht VVV

The ladies at the VVV (tourist center) were very helpful in locating us a B and B after our first night in Maastricht.You can e-mail the VVV and request a visitors guide which will list many options for accomidations.The VVV also seels maps of the city and can give advice for many other area attractions.These folks are happy to answer any questions you have.

A bed and breakfast is normally much less expensive than a hotel.We stayed 7 nights at a B and B located on Alexander Baatallan street.This location was very nice and the hostess was very helpful during our stay there.However I think that many of the other B and B's are very nice options as well.

Botel: Cool Floating Hotel that's a boat

The Botel is alot of fun. They have a bar and eating area. The breakfast is great, 6€ extra. My single room had bunk beds and a tiny tiny bathroom. The boat rocked a bit when other boats went by. It's in a great location. There is no parking though. YOu have to park in a lot which is just around the corner, a plus. But it's 2€ an hour. I don't think I was charged for Sunday and some late hours.

37 € a night, breakfast included.

Hotel du Chene.: Centrally located.

The du Chene is on the edge of the city centre and is within walking distance of everything you'll want to see in Maastricht.
Can't remember the cost (1994).

Hotel Sansa: Cheap Sleep

The owner was nice and let me use his computer and Internet to check emails and flight schedules, for free.

No elevator...but what's new. Seems that's typical for the area.
