Kruisherenhotel in Maastricht, Netherlands

Many luxury hotels can boast beautiful buildings as part of their stay experience, but few can rival the Kruisherenhotel in Maastricht. Camille Oostwegel, the hotel’s owners, specialize in converting Chateaus and Stately Homes into luxury hotels and restaurants, with Kruisherenhotel the flagship in their portfolio. The hotel is converted from a 15th century gothic church and its marketing line, ‘Design Between Heaven and Earth’, is one that is, if anything, understated.

Situated in the heart of beautiful Maastricht, this former Kruisheren cloister has been stylishly transformed into a modern luxury hotel with accomodation for 60 rooms, a dramatic Restaurant in the mezzanine of the former church, Bars, Corporate Facilities and a luxurious Salon & Spa.

The interior design is by renowned designer Henk Vos, who made use of designs from the creme of the industry, such as Le Corbusier and Rietveld as well as modern designers Marc Newson, Piet Heyn Eeck and Philippe Starck. These designs have been carefully chosen to contrast and compliment the luminosity from the buildings stained glass windows and also the breathtaking, original, wall and ceiling paintings.

Each of the hotel’s 60 rooms is unique, designed to blend the very best of modern design and comforts with the building’s historical charm. Several of the rooms are situated away from the main building, in two arhictecurally different outhouses. The first, Renaissance Lodge, is a renovated former gatekeepers lodge and the second, Casa Nova, is an amazing modern contemporary structure built within the hotel complex.

If you’re looking for picture-postcard, romantic, arhictecture and chic accomodations, we don’t believe it gets much better than Kruisherenhotel. A truly stunning hotel and stay experience, that is a must-visit for the Chic Traveler.
