De Cleijne Nagtegael

A special B&B in the heart of historic Dordrecht

Are you looking for a beautiful and special accommodation for your city trip to Dordrecht? Then come and stay in De Cleijne Nagtegael, located in a beautiful monumental building in the middle of the historic city center of Dordrecht, adjacent to the cozy Nieuwe Haven. We offer you a small-scale, boutique style Bed & Breakfast with a special history. This was once the birthplace of painter Aelbert Cuyp.

A monumental building with a unique history

Have you always wanted to spend the night on the birthplace of one of the Dutch Masters? B&B De Cleijne Nagtegael biedt deze unieke kans. The painter Aelbert Cuyp was born on this ground in 1620. In addition, this historic building is also an officially listed building. After a necessary renovation, the building has recently been beautifully renovated.

An impression of the atmosphere

Our B&B has the attractive appearance and luxury of a high-quality boutique hotel. With our two suites we can be called small-scale and we offer a nice place with a warm atmosphere. The historic building is an inspiring place where you can relax in the morning wake up in peace to start a new day. Can you see it already? In the sun, sitting on the bench in front of the B&B, you can drink a cup of coffee and gaze at the boats in the harbor in front of you in peace. Because of the historic environment you can almost imagine what it was like here when Albert Cuyp crawled around here as a baby. Then a beautiful day starts where it becomes difficult to determine what you are going to do…. After all, Dordrecht offers so many possibilities! At the end of a beautiful day, you return to the B&B to relax with a drink, unless of course you choose to settle down directly in the luxurious bed. The rooms are not adjacent to the street side, so that your night’s sleep is not disturbed by any noises from the street and harbor. You are really on holiday here.
Is it raining or is it a bit chilly? Then you can sit inside in the attractive general area with a view of the harbour. For complete peace and privacy, you can enjoy breakfast in your own pantry.

Close to everything Dordrecht has to offer

B&B De Cleijne Nagtegael borders the cozy Nieuwe Haven, which is always full of boats. In addition, the B&B is within walking distance of the famous Grote Kerk, the three rivers point, numerous cozy restaurants, terraces, shops and great museums. The boarding point for tour boats is also nearby.

The historic environment invites you to put on your hiking boots. Would you rather rent a bicycle or e-bike to explore the area? That is also possible at De Cleijne Nagtegael. This way you can see even more of the city and its rich surroundings. For example, consider a bike ride through the Biesbosch National Park.
