Travel Blogs from Maastricht
Holland is a small country. Just a few hours by car down the motorway from Vianen is Maastricht. But a detour through some country roads with pretty villages and even a ferry to cross a river improved the journey greatly.

TravelPod Member ReviewsNovotel Maastricht
Standard soulless city hotel
Staff quite friendly and helpful
