Maastricht is a very pretty small city with wonderful restaurants, lively cafés, and interesting shops - it is a very agreeable place to relax and enjoy the hospitality for which Limburg is famous. The town is situated in what might be termed the Dutch mountains, an area with rolling hills, Flemish castles, and many walking trails - it is also an excellent base for exploring other towns and indeed other countries. Follow the Maas for half an hour to reach Liège, or drive half an hour in another direction to Aachen, Charlemagne's town, where the cathedral has the best mosaics north of Ravenna. The larger cities of Brussels, Antwerp, Düsseldorf and Cologne, each with a distinctive atmosphere and much to offer, are all about an hour from Maastricht. Explore the area and come back to the comfort of your own base, or just enjoy the many possibilities within walking distance - either way you'll have a wonderful time.
Fully equipped apartment, close to center of Maastricht and most university buildings.

Barbara war eine ganz tolle Gastgeberin. Sie ist sehr herzlich und offen, hat uns wunderbare Tipps für Maastricht gegeben und im Kühlschrank alles Nötige für ein Frühstück bereit gestellt. Sogar frische Brötchen hat sie für uns besorgt. Und auch die Wohnung war großartig, sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet und zentral gelegen. Wir werden Barbara mit Sicherheit wieder besuchen.
Mooie ruimte, prima bedden, dicht bij het centrum, goede ontvangst, prima verzorgd, lekker ontbijt; kortom alles helemaal zoals we hoopten en in overeenstemming met de beschrijving.
Fijn appartement, we hebben genoten. Vlakbij het centrum, alles op loopafstand. Goed geslapen, ruimte was helemaal naar verwachting. Barbara is een lieve gastvrouw die meteen erg vriendelijk en open is. De verse broodjes elke ochtend zijn heerlijk! Het was fijn in Maastricht!
Barbara was a wonderful host and genuinely helped to navigate the necessary protocols in order to complete the booking procedure, as this was the first time I had used Airbnb. The location was fine being close to a traffic island on the main peripheral road around the inner city. There was also good access to bus routes and a mere 10 minutes walk into the very centre of town. Having walked around the town all day it was a most welcoming quiet oasis of tranquility in which to relax and reflect. Barbara is a most thoughtful and kind host and had stocked the fridge with eggs, butter, water and wine and, as promised, a small bag containing fresh bread rolls and small choco croissants and sweet muffins were hanging from the outside of the door knob shortly after 08:00 am. There was lots of tourist literature covering the area and Barbara added her own extensive local knowledge to particular areas of interest.
Everything was so very well thought out, caring and welcoming, without being at all intrusive.
It was my first experience of booking airbnb but if Maastricht is typical, I am already a great fan.
The accommodations in Maastricht were exceptional! It is a lovely flat with ample space and all of the comforts of home. Barbara was a gracious host assuring that all of our questions were answered, providing recommendations, and encouraging us to enjoy the wonderful city. She even provided delicious fresh baked goods to our door in the morning. When I travel to Maastricht in the future, I will be sure to arrange my travel to stay in this wonderful location again.
We have enjoyed very much our stay at Barbara apartment, very conveniently located, well equipped and above all Barbara is a great host.
Barbara was a fantastic host that went above and beyond to help us out during our stay. The apartment was in a very handy location and exactly as described. Comfortable and clean and had everything we could possibly need. Lots of information on things to do, eat and a map to get around. Thank you so much for your kind hospitality, I would definitely book again if I ever return to Maastricht.
