Kruisherenhotel Maastricht



Kruisherenhotel Maastricht
Design between heaven and earth

Situated in the centre of Maastricht is the former Kruisheren cloister, dating from the fifteenth century. Together with the monumental gothic church, this complex has been transformed into a very special designer hotel. It is a unique place, in which antiquity and modern design are interwoven; yet, at the same time, architectural contrasts between the past and the present are very clear.

The Kruisherenhotel has 60 rooms all featuring a full range of modern conveniences to ensure maximum comfort for guests. Each room is unique and is individually designed to take full advantage of the contrast between the centuries-old building and the modern furnishings. In addition to the rooms in the former cloister, several rooms are situated in the former gatekeeper’s lodge, renamed the Renaissance House, and in Casa Nova, a beautiful example of contemporary architecture.

Breakfast is served “between heaven and earth” on the mezzanine in the nave of the church. The church building also houses the reception desk, the lobby, three lounge corners in the former side chapels, the library, the glass lift and a wine bar with a very special above-ground wine cellar. Lunch and diner is served daily in the Kruisherenrestaurant.

The Kruisherenhotel Maastricht has an outdoor café terrace in the quadrangle.

The interior has been created by the internationally renowned interior designer Henk Vos. The beautiful pieces of light installation artwork is created by the German light installation artist Ingo Maurer. Throughout the complex, use has been made of the notable designs of masters such as Le Corbusier and Rietveld as well as modern designers like Marc Newson, Piet Heyn Eeck, Philippe Starck and Roderick Vos. These designs form exciting contrasts with the stained glass windows and the stunning, authentic wall and ceiling paintings.

The Kruisherenhotel is situates in de heart of the centre of Maastricht, close to the Vrijthof square. Maastricht has a rich history with attractive little shops and pleasant, bustling café terraces. This is a city with thousands of monuments combined with a hip and trendy outlook.
