I used not to care where I stayed. Recently, that has started to change. One of the best places I stayed was Hotel Les Charmes in the lovely Dutch town, Maastricht
Hotel Les Charmes is a lovely renovated place in the middle of Maastricht. Everything in the centre is a five or ten minutes walk, an ideal place to stay in a very quiet street. I loved the mix of design (Eames!), hipster elements and old things a lot!
