It was my first stay at Martin's Patershof and what a great experience. The room was absolutely fabulous with the arches of the church, stained glass window, and general character of my room. It was also well furnished and with modern amenities. It also had everything that a business traveler would want with free wifi, water in the room, and... More

Stay here always for a couple of day`s-good business hotel with a special architecture as it has been a chruch before. Rooms are proper and quiet-has a late bar and smoking area inside the courtyard. Parking for 25 is a bit odd as you prob. won´t find a parking for free space arround.

I stayed one night in this hotel. We paid €179 + city taxes for the "great room". We booked the "love birds" package. It included a bottle of cava and rose petal on the bed. A nice extra because when I booked the price tag was the same as the room without the extra's. The whole hotel and room was... More

This hotel is situated in an old church. They have a super suite in the top of the church tower. Even stromae had his wedding night here. This and a weekend out in mechelen is a thing to do. There is no real dining in the hotel.

We were recently at St. Martin's Patershof on January 1st, 2016. We decided to stay in Mechelen instead of Brussels and chose it for the proximity and ease of getting to the airport for our flight home the last day. The hotel is in a great location in Mechelen within walking distance of the center, but on a quiet street.... More

We stayed for 3 nights in April 2015. The hotel was fully booked and unfortunately we were allocated a very small room which had none of the 'church' features we were expecting. It was quite dark, and damp smelling. There was very little room to hang clothes. The bathroom was clean but basic. Breakfast was fine, served in the main... More

As the title states, I enjoyed very much my stay at this hotel while preparing for a business meeting last Nov2015. I've never been to such an original hotel, I must say: restored from a former catholic church, it never gives you the creep or any "weird" feeling about its history, so the rest was quite good (I was coming...

Lovely hotel, clean, charismatic. Bar food was very good, so were the breakfasts. Ive stayed in many rooms and unfortunately have to say that although most are fantastic, one or two of them, behind the bar area are blighted by machine noise; either a fridge or an AC unit. This spoils sleep quality. Just not befitting to a hotel. Otherwise... More
