Proving that contemporary styles can be perfectly matched with late-medieval architecture, the designers of Kruisherenhotel Maastricht have come up with many innovative solutions for various structural challenges, including such highlights as the glass elevator connecting the church to the monastery area. The sixty-room complex consists of the original monastery as well as a Gothic church, which now houses the reception area and several hotel facilities, including conference rooms, a library, a boutique, a restaurant, and a wine bar. Another spectacular feature is the newly installed mezzanine, where guests are served breakfast while taking in views of Maastricht through the chancel windows. The "espace vinicole" is no less stunning, both for its impressive offering of wines as well as the strikingly large glass vault which houses them. The interior is matched by beautiful monastery gardens – a haven in the midst of a vibrant city center.

Custom-made Kruisheren beds by Henk Vos and Auping feature throughout the hotel’s 60 rooms and suites, which also feature deluxe bathrooms with spacious tubs. The collaboration between Dutch designer Henk Vos and revered lighting designer Ingo Maurer creates a miscellany of textures and tones throughout the guestrooms, while luxury reaches its pinnacle in The Suite, replete with a whirlpool and two-person shower.
“Good design is respectful of its surroundings, drawing from the landscape and the history and raw materials of its setting.” So says Camille Oostwegel, second-generation hotelier, who learned the industry as youngster by following his parents around their properties. After graduating from Maastricht Hotel Management School in 2009 and from RSM Erasmus University in Rotterdam in 2011, his career path took him to Spain and the U.S., before he returned home and worked alongside his father, Camille Sr. Today, he runs the family business, which includes four properties housed in national monuments, each a celebration of history and contemporary design. “Visitors at a hotel should just feel right, without being able to exactly explain why that is,” says Oostwegel. “To me, that’s the magic of good design.”
