Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Johannes Vermeer

Molslaan 18-22, Delft, South Holland, 2611 RM, Netherlands

You'll be spoiled for choice of Old Master views at the first Delft hotel to pay homage to the town's most famous son: the pleasant modern rooms (with beams and other nice touches) at the front overlook a canal, while those at the back have a sweeping city view that takes in three churches. This former cigar factory today has unobtrusive decor, awash in tasteful greens and yellows, and the staff here are pleasantly friendly. The garden behind the hotel is a mellow place to have a drink. The restaurant is open only for groups (advance arrangements essential)—a shame, because its walls are adorned with reproductions of Vermeer's entire corpus, his Girl with a Pearl Earring taking center stage.
