Charming and unique
Posted Mar 29, 2016
loved our stay at Hotel Grote Gracht but I'd call it more of a cross between a B&B and a hotel, and probably leaning toward B&B. We had what was called a Family Room, which slept 4 and was basically a loft setup--was very homey and sort of cool, felt almost like a modern cabin with A-frame ceilings--my sense is that most/all of the rooms are different/unique. The somewhat narrow staircase to get to the loft was a minor negative after several days, and especially if you had to use the bathroom in the middle of the night (bring your phone flashlight, to get down the steps in the dark). Another minor negative, for us anyway (and depending on what you're looking for) is that the hotel certainly doesnt have typical hotel services/amenities (again, more like a B&B in that respect)--there was also no elevator so our room being on the 3rd floor got a bit old after awhile--a small complaint, and something we were aware of before we went. Great location, definitely boutique/smaller, some minor negatives but we enjoyed it overall--and it definitely fit the charming and beautiful town of Maastricht.
