What a wonderful gem. Historic old church on the outside. Wonderful, high class hotel on the inside. Rooms can be a bit unusual in their layout (sometimes a support pillar in the room), but they've retained the beautiful building and it's character outside and wonderfully remodeled the inside into the gem that it is. And close to the centrum. Great... More

Definitely deserves its 4-star! A remodelled cathedral with great room space, this hotel is stunning. The tower room was clean, spacious and comfy. The breakfast was more than convenient. Even though the parking was expensive, it was worth having a car space. Very convenient to restaurants across the river. Will definitely stay there again.

The view from the room was great, with beutiful church 50-100 m away. The breakfast was very good, and the breakfast room was amazing, the former chapel of the church. The staff was... More

I visited the Martin's Patershof hotel as part of a business trip to the city. A charming hotel, very tastefully restored to reflect the history of the church building. My room was large by other hotel standards, beautifully decorated and full of character with a preserved stained-glass window. Like the rest of the hotel, cleanliness was of a very high... More

Same with dining room where the original altar is still present. Not only the place as such but also the service and food are of a very good quality. Place is close to the... More

A very good hotel situated close to the centre of the town. The conversion of the building is very good creating spacious comfortable rooms with character. The service was excellent throughout our visit and the breakfast buffet was one of the best I have had in Belgium. I will definitely return here on future visits to Mechelen.

We stayed in this hotel with colleagues for a convention. The hotel is unique and special thanks to the great architecture of the church but also the beautiful interior that was perfectly integrated with the church architecture. The staff is friendly and the diner served in the evening was good. Also the breakfast was nice with a variety of choice... More

I only stayed one night, but can recommend this hotel. I had what the hotel calls a 'cosy room'. It had a good size itself, the bed was very comfortable, good size bathroom. All very clean and also very friendly staff. The food choice at the bar was a bit restricted, but that is just a statement not a criticism.... More
