A new kid in town and already winner of a prestigious award? It happened to Townhouse Hotels, a brand new hotel in the center of Maastricht.
With good service, innovative concept and interior. No slick design - so last year - but modern with a wink to the past. And let’s not forget the luxury so much needed on a weekend break: a Mosa bathroom with rain shower or bath. And if that is not enough upgrade your room with a bottle of local whine, romantic breakfast, free laptop and more.
I say this Townhouse is something else. No wonder they were given the VENUEZ Hospitality & Style Award 2009.
Price: from 39 euro p.p.p.n. (double room)

Visited London, Paris, Barcelona and even Istanbul? Why not head up north to Stockholm. Great for a winter wonderland break or for a midsummer stay.
And if you like hip and beautiful SoFo, (south of Folkungagatan) is the neighborhood to stay. Here you will find independent design shops and the trendiest restaurants and bars of Stockholm. And a great B&B: 4Trappor, an apartment for two with a bedroom, a full equipped kitchen and a modern bathroom. With lots of extra’s to make your stay comfortable: LCD TV, cooker, fridge, microwave and espresso machine.
Price: 850 SEK breakfast excl./ 1000 SEK breakfast incl. p.p.p.n.
(appr. 42 euro/50 euro)
For most Zürich is not really an obvious destination for a city trip. But this city has got more to offer than just great chocolates. Visit creative Zürich West and discover great architecture, the newest galleries and cool bars.
Want to enjoy Swiss design close up? Stay at Gasthaus Zum Guten Glück . 10 rooms with a basic setup but with lots of original Swiss design furniture from the 60’s and 70’s. Add to that a great location: near the cultural hotspots and in a fast developing multicultural neighbourhood. And for sure you will have a brilliant time.
Breakfast is served daily until 8PM. Think of pancakes, waffles and Dutch poffertjes as the manager is Dutch.
