Boat hotel in Maastricht.

Boat hotel in Maastricht.

.

Last week I stayed at a boat hotel in Maastricht, Netherlands and I could not have been happier with my accommodation in Maastricht.

I stay in hotels more than 300 days a year and if there is one type of hotel I am not interested in, when on holiday, then it’s your average 4 star hotel, cause I stay there all the time when I work. So when I decided to spend a couple of days in Maastricht and saw that there was a boat hotel in Maastricht for a very decent price, then I booked that right away.

I was warned by a couple of people in advance, that this was no luxury hotel and I heard that some people really hate it, but I was really happy there. I am not looking for an old houseboat, turned in to a luxury hotel. I am perfectly happy just staying at an old houseboat, especially when you consider that I only paid 30€ per night for a single room.. This is very cheap in this part of the world I tell you.

The boat is fairly old, but they have made a nice reception area with a bar and you can sit on the deck and have your drinks if the weather is nice. My room was small, but functional and it had a real feel of being a cabin in a boat, which I like, since I love sailing. I had a nice big double bed in my room that gave me a good nights sleep and the only thing I could have wished for was that the wifi had been stronger, so it had covered my room too and not just the reception/bar area.

But all in all, this was a really cool place to stay and I can only recommend the boat hotel in Maastricht, if you are looking for a cheap and charming place to stay and that you are aware that this is not a boat turned in to a luxury hotel, but an old fashioned house boat with the original cabins.

The name of the place is actually Botel Maastricht and the website of the place is here
