A Monastery Goes Modern in Holland's Kruisherenhotel-Maastricht

Have you ever dreamed about staying at a 15th-century monastery? While that wish may be reserved for prospective nuns and monks, a beautifully renovated monastery is another story altogether — especially one filled with incredible modern designs. With the intention of serving as a museum of contemporary 20th century design, Holland's Kruisherenhotel-Maastricht, consisting of the monastery as well as a Gothic church, features designs from Marcel Wanders, Philippe Starck, Piet-Hein Eek, and Le Corbusier, to name only a few of the famous designers on display here. Architect Henk Vos converted the open monastery space into several different levels and installed a glass elevator to connect the church with the monastery. Each of the 60 rooms, as well as the community spaces, has been uniquely decorated with designer pieces. Perhaps my favorite touch is the glowing entrance tunnel that guests must pass through to reach the hotel. Other hotel facilities include a library, coffee bar, restaurant, conference rooms, boutique, and gorgeous hotel gardens. Keep reading to take a complete tour!
