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.
Interaction with Guests
As much or as little as you like. I'm always happy to provide information on local sites, activities and logistics.
The apartment is strictly non-smoking, and using candles is not permitted.
Barbara is a very hospitable host. She showed us around the lovely appartment, that was just as beautiful as shown in the pictures. She provided us with many leaflets, booklets and maps of Maastricht.
In the morning she brought us delicious fresh rolls.
We will be happy to stay with het again in the future.
Barbara is heel gastvrij, ze stond klaar om ons te verwelkomen, liet alles zien wat er te weten was over het prachtige appartement. Er waren allerhande boekjes, folders en plattegronden van Maastricht en omstreken.
Het appartement is net zo mooi als op de foto's. De slaapkamer aan de achterzijde van het pand bleef bij erg warm weer toch aangenaam. Van de drukke weg, hoor je binnen niets.
'S morgens hangt Barbara heerlijke verse broodjes aan de deur.
De B&B ligt heel centraal, 800 meter van het Vrijthof.
We komen er beslist nog eens terug.
It is a really good experience. Though the weather is not that good, Babara is really warm hearted. She explained everything in detail in the house and prepared a detailed information about the city and things you may need. Also there was a great breakfast she provided. The location is also great which near to the center and shop. I'd truly recommend her house to everyone which is so great.
Barbara was a super host. as we had kids moving to Maastricht to study Barbara was a wealth of info via email even before we met her. The apartment was exactly as described and shown on the website. The fresh bread and patisseries each morning were delightful, as were the wine and basic supplies in the fridge on arrival. A lovely environment in a great part of Maastricht, made extra special by Barbara's welcome and warmth. We hired bikes from OV and rode everywhere, and Barbara stored our bikes in the hallway at night. Couldn't do enough to enhance our stay. Lots of valuable and useful suggestions for places to visit, sites to see, cafes to indulge. It was a terrific time all round. Thanks Barbara.
Barbara is een hele gastvrije vrouw. Toen wij aankwamen stond ze klaar om ons te verwelkomen. We konden eerst rustig de spullen op de kamer zetten. Daarna heeft ze allerlei leuke dingen over de stad Maastricht verteld met behulp van een plattegrond. Ook heeft ze alles in het appartement uitgelegd qua televisie, kookplaat, koffiezetapparaat en zelfs hoe het bedbank moest worden uitgeschoven.
De volgende morgen hingen er heerlijke broodjes van de bakker aan de deur!
Het appartement ziet er in het echt precies uit als op de foto's. Heel mooi en schoon. En het ligt natuurlijk op een toplocatie, 6 a 7 minuten lopen van het Vrijthof, ideaal!
Very nice appartment in central Maastricht. Barbara was very welcoming and helpful! Will probably come back!
Barbara was, as always, a very gracious and accommodating hostess. This was our second visit. She is totally flexible and very generous in all senses. I have no hesitation in recommending Barbara's lodging as a great place to stay in Maastricht.
