Maastricht is the perfect city for a romantic weekend getaway! For Valentines Day you need to book an overnight stay at Loft51. Cool lofts, located in a beautiful historical building. Here you find yourself in New York (and who does not like New York). Oh and for dinner we recommend Marres Kitchen!

Mother Goose – Utrecht
Mother Goose is located in Stadskwartier, a neighbourhood of Utrecht. Nearby the canals and many nice restaurants. I myself am crazy about design hotels and I think you want to sleep here during Valentine! Because of the natural colours they used to decorate the rooms. Sooo beautiful!

In an old electricity factory in Rotterdam you will find boutique hotel Stroom. Or actually a hotel, bar and restaurants in one.

Julien – Antwerp
At Yourlbb we love historic building that get to have a second life. This includes Hotel Julien. A small hotel in Antwerp where you can unwind. Thanks to the green courtyard (although it still might be a bit to cold outside during Valentine) and a spa! Thé place to relax with your loved one. And did I mention Antwerp is great for shopping?

Marble – Antwerp
Marble is hot, that’s for sure. And in Antwerp, they understood this trend, with as a result Marble. An apartment complex in an old mansion, consisting of 2 suites and 2 studios. Beautifully decorated suites and studios, because marble gives the place such a luxury look. The thought of sleeping at this place makes my heart jump and I am sure that you will love this place too.
