LindaStyleDiary loves to travel with Thalys

Normally I do everything by car, but due to my busy schedules, Thalys is really the solution!

As you might know, I live in Rotterdam and from the Central Station I can take the Thalys to Antwerp, Brussels or Paris.

Last weekend I had to be in Antwerp for work. Unfortunately, I had a fairly busy week that week so I did not want to use the car. I have decided to go to Antwerp with the Thalys, from Rotterdam CS it is only 30 minutes in the train to Antwerp Central Station. With the car I would be on the road for an hour and probably would not arrive as rested as I do with the Thalys. I was also able to easily work that 30-minute journey time.

As you now know, I had a pretty busy week behind me. So I chose to travel with Thalys in Premium class.
Please see the benefits of Premium below:

  • Travel in comfort with a larger seat in a quiet and spacious environment.
  • Enjoy a tasty meal with regional and seasonal produce at any time of the day.
  • Take advantage of faster Wi-Fi and more data to work or surf during your entire trip.
  • Discover a wide selection of multilingual newspapers and magazines that are available for you at the entrance of the carriage.
  • Recharge your electronic devices during your journey thanks to the individual sockets.
  • Extend your trip to Antwerp, Paris or Brussels in peace: our on-board teams reserve your taxi.
  • You can visit our lounges in Paris, Brussels, Cologne and Dusseldorf. The ideal place to relax, work or gain information.

Rotterdam,
Rotterdam knows a lot of restaurants but there is one restaurant in particular that many people do not know about.

Hangar 85

You will find this amazing restaurant at the ‘Wijnhaven 85’

ENJOY HANGAR 85 BAR & KITCHEN
Positioned in the stunning ‘Wijnhaven’ you will find the hotspot of Rotterdam, Hangar 85 Bar & Kitchen. Located next to the authentic Four Lion Bridge and the rippling water, the modern facade immediately stands out. The style of the interior is cool and yet warm and the open design makes you feel at ease immediately. The kitchen prepares classic dishes with a trendy twist. Hangar 85 is the place to be for a nice lunch, a relaxed and cozy drink or a nice dinner. You can also come to them with large groups. Do you have something to celebrate, business or private? They like to think along with you.
You are most welcome.

This stylish restaurant with its open and accessible interior is suitable for any company at any time of the day. Whether you have a business lunch, want a romantic dinner, or in the evening with a last drink at the bar, Hangar 85 is always the right place.

The quality of the products are on number 1 at Hangar 85. You immediately notice this with the sophisticated dishes and carefully composed wine arrangements. You do not eat a standard starter and dessert, but different small dishes to taste more.
So, this is truly amazing with your love, friends or family! Isn’t it?
The young and enthusiastic team cooks classic dishes with a modern interpretation. Choose some dishes from the menu yourself or be surprised by a four-five or six-course menu from the chef.

I love surprises so, I chose for the six course menu from the chef and of course they ask what you like or not like. There is only one thing I can say about, it was absolutely delicious!

As you may know I am a wine lover! Red wine or white wine it depends on the food.
This time I chose for white wine and it tasted so good!

This restaurant has style and at the same time a warm company! The young team is enthusiastic and feels very strongly about hospitality. As soon as you step into the restaurant, you will feel right at home.  So quickly taste the dishes, or just come and drink a good glass of wine on the terrace.

So guys, don’t hesitate and book your table as soon as possible to try it yourself!
And forget the try out the delicious crème brûlée! 

Lots of love,

LindaStyleDiary loves Haas op het Vrijthof (Maastricht)

A city trip, many people would like to go abroad but don’t forget about Maastricht!
This is one of my favourite cities in Holland because you feel like you are abroad!
The people are so kind and the food and drinks are fantastic.

But it all starts with a hotel first! Don’t look further because ‘Haas op het Vrijthof’ is the most amazing hotel in Maastricht! This luxury boutique hotel has it all!

Luxury in a House full of Wonder
Haas op het Vrijthof was built in 1920 and became the private residence of a well-established lady.  This Art Nouveau house is a serene home away from home, situated in the quiet corner of the main square in the rich centre of Maastricht. The mansion is a piece of design in itself with its own amazing character and style. For the interior the focus on functional aesthetics is based on vintage classics and typical Scandinavian furniture pieces. In combination with modern-day travel wishes, it all results in a unique house filled with a wonderful collection of design, friendly details and happy people.

A selection that adds to the experience
In their house, you feel you are not staying in a usual hotel. It is a place where you are treated as being a part of it. During your stay, you are the inhabitants of the city, living on the Vrijthof. They supply you the keys for seeing the real city and experiencing a place where you can feel at home. Their comfortable living room overlooking the square is where you can work, enjoy breakfast, read a book, enjoy a cup of coffee or just sit down and wonder.

Their breakfast is personally made and you can tell them your preferences. They present it influenced by their regional producers and underneath two charming glass bells. It can be served at any time of choice and wherever you prefer. May it be in their room, our living room, your private terrace or even their kitchen. You are free to sneak down to their cellar and open your own private wine shelf to taste a selection of wines from the region. You have the opportunity to wind down with a chilled bottle in your suite or room.

They have 6 type of rooms
SEE HERE THE ROOMS

I chose the Superior Suite!
The name says it all. This suite is superior. The suite is a unique accommodation with its grandeur feel caused by the space, used materials and facilities. The salon room in this suite with Art Deco style is decorated with an old copper fireplace from 1920 and gives you a panoramic view on the Vrijthof. Furthermore, the Superior Suite contains a comfortable fully-equipped kitchen connected to the private green terrace. Two bedrooms are prepared with three comfortable beds in total. There are two bathrooms and one bath. Graceful ornaments and a combination of hardwood floor and stone contribute to make this suite delightfully eccentric and very special.

120 square meters – private salon room – fully equipped kitchen – private terrace – bathroom with bath – copper fireplace – 1 double master bedroom and 1 single bedroom – free internet access – well stocked mini-bar – bathrobe & slippers
The Superior Suite has a private elevator stop in the suite.

No idea what I could expect because they only have 3 pictures of this room on their webpage.
But when I opened the door of the room, one word: AMAZING!
This has nothing to do with a basic hotel, it feels like your own apartment and 120 square meters is not just a basic hotel, isn’t it? This is truly amazing!

The host was really helpful and show us the high topics of Maastricht! He asked us when we would like to have breakfast etc.

After a good sleep in their lovely beds it was time for breakfast at 09.00 AM, they served the breakfast in our room, in our kitchen! Isn’t it fantastic?

I truly recommend you this hotel in Maasticht because this luxury boutique hotel has it all!

TIME TO TRY IT OUT YOURSELF!
ENJOY!

Lots of Love,
Linda
