Hotel with a rich history
This former monastery and church complex dates from the 15th century and is located on Kommelplein square, an urban oasis with lots of greenery, terraces and arts. In the first three centuries it was inhabited by the Order of the Crosiers. Later, the building served as a military barracks for the French Revolution, and in the last century it was a governmental agricultural test station. In 2007 the Order of the Crosiers (’Orde der Kruisheren’) lent its name to a five-star hotel where history, luxury and design mingle.
The light objects designed by the light artist Ingo Maurer represent the finishing touch for the hotel. The colorful lights and sober lines of the objects make for an extraordinary contrast with the building’s historic ambiance. Each of the sixty rooms has its own character and style.
The huge windows of the former church allow for a wonderful view of the picturesque Kommelplein on three sides. After a city walk through life-loving Maastricht, you can withdraw in one of the three former chantries that have been converted into trendy lounge spaces. Later in the day, before enjoying a wonderful dinner, you can order an aperitif in the above-ground ‘wine cellar’.
