Accomodation
The city of Maastricht is a very attractive location drawing plenty of tourists around the year, particularly during summer so that it is difficult to obtain a room on short notice. Therefore, we strongly recommend you to reserve accommodation as soon as possible.

Hotel Au Quartier *** (Kapoenstraat 32; 6211 KW Maastricht; http://www.auquartier.nl)
Hotel Au Quartier is an intimate and comfortable 3-star hotel with a historic character. It therefore fits right in with the surrounding ‘Jekerkwartier’, a picturesque part of the old city centre. The hotel’s central location makes it very easy to reach the Maastricht University and many of the old town’s attractions, restaurants and lively outdoor terraces.
The Hotel Au Quartier can be found in an 18th century mansion in an enclosed courtyard; it is situated in the ‘Jekerkwartier’, a lovely part of the city of Maastricht. The ‘Vrijthof’, the site of many historic attractions and many lively terraces, and the ‘Onze-Lieve-Vrouwebasiliek’ (Our-Sweet-Lady Cathedral) are within walking distance, as are such attractions as the town gate ‘Helpoort’ (Hellgate) and the city’s public gardens.

Hotel Botticelli *** (Papenstraat 11; 6211 LG Maastricht; http://hotelbotticelli.nl/?lang=en)
A comfortable and romantic hotel with a personal touch and hospitality, born out of the fascination for Italy, Toscana and the Italian renaissance. Behind the slogan “the simple art of well-being” you’ll find an atmosphere typical for the small mansion hotels as one finds normally only in Italy, with all rooms in an Italian style.
Hotel Botticelli is established in two monumental premises in the characteristic Jeker district, dead centre, in the shade of the Saint Servaas basilisk and the most famous plaza of the Netherlands, the Vrijthof. The  early 18th century residence was build as  a wine merchants mansion with warehouse. The two premises are being separated by a romantic inner garden.
