we had a wonderful stay in Maastricht thanks to Dorina and Alex.
Their spatious appartment has a wonderful view over the river, the bedroom and bathroom are clean and tidy. This place is perfectly situated to explore Maastricht as both shopping area's, musea and historical monuments are within walking distance.
Dorina and Alex were really friendly and they even prepared a list of their favourite restaurants and bars which was very convenient.
If we visit Maastricht again, we would absolutely stay with Dorina and Alex again!
We've had a great stay at the appartment of Alex & Dorina. They gave us a lot of useful tips for sightseeing and places to have drinks and dinner. The appartment is wonderful and has a perfect location. Everything we needed was provided, the appartment was very clean and we've had a nice breakfast for 5 euros extra. Alex and Dorina are very friendly and hospitable people, we have really enjoyed our stay in Maastricht.
We stayed at Alex and Dorinas place one weekend. They clearly communicated with us in advance. On arrival we were welcomed nicely by Alex and made comfortable with some tea/ coffee and Russian chocolate. The room was very tidy and cosy, like the rest of the apartment. Alex gave us plenty of tips. We really liked his recommendation on 'Take one' a unique beer cafe. The location of the B&B is awesome! We had some interesting conversations, even though we only stayed three days. Alex and Dorina do respect your privacy. When I lost my wallet they were really helpful. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and hope we'll be able to come back in the future!
Ik heb genoten van het verblijf bij Dorina & Alex. erg aardige , gastvrije mensen. Een werkelijke super mooi appartement met comfortabel ingerichte slaapkamer.Enig minpunt , had achteraf meer dan 1 nacht moeten (website hidden) zeker een keer terug met dochterlief.
We kwamen pas rond 5 uur aan en werden heel gastvrij ontvangen, Het uitzicht van dit 'Penthouse' was echt overweldigend. Het beste plekje om te verblijven in Maastricht. Nogmaals heel erg bedankt, voor de snelle reacties en de service!
Alex & Dorina are very pleasant and relaxed people who can tell you alot about Maastricht. The location is absolutely perfect, right in the centre and 10 minutes away from the main train station. We can highly recommend staying with Alex & Dorina. Not only for the location but also for their hospitality and friendly welcome.
Dorina and Alex are great hosts. We have been welcomed with a cup of tea and were shortly introduced to shopping possibilities etc. The appartment was really clean, our bed was very comfortable, they even offered to wash our towels during the short stay.
If we would come back to Maastricht, there would be only their home to stay at for us. Recommendable in every department, especially if you want to be directly within the shiny city centre, but note that it is quite noisy from the streets below.
Weekend voor kerst bij Dorina en Alex geslapen. Het was erg geslaagd. Goede locatie en hele aardige mensen die je veel willen vertellen over Maastricht en bij wie je altijd terecht kan. Kamer en badkamer is netjes en genoeg ruimte. Dorina en Alex zijn erg gastvrij en hebben ook nog een werelldontbijt voor ons geregeld. Het was TOP!
A friendly and inviting welcome by Alex! A nice and sociable host.
The room is in a spacious appartment in the center of Maastricht amidst all the attractions and hotspots. A 10 minutes walk from the railway station Maastricht. The room is small but convenient. Good bedding. bathroom & toilet (shared with hosts) and room are clean and spotless. Free use of coffee and thee. We did not take breakfast because of travel plans, but can be taken at €5 extra.
We surely can recommend a stay here!
Wat een heerlijke BnB! Fantastische plek, een heerlijk bed en een super gastvrij welkom. Ik was gelijk op mijn gemak en had een prima verblijf. Ook het ontbijt was erg goed verzorgd. Als ik ooit nog in Maastricht moet zijn kom ik hier zeker terug. Compliment voor Alex en Dorina!
