Ineffective radiator in room, unable to bleed, no maintenance staff available. Room/bathroom not very well cleaned. Wi-Fi did not work, Manager said it was Service Providers problem, and to write to them!! TV did not appear to have any English Channels (in 2015!) Mattress from another time.

Nothing to remark, only one small thing. Breakfast is only until 10am, if it was to 11am I would give this hotel maximum score. Rooms are very big and clean with all amenities provided. I would recommend this hotel in Mechelen.

Our stay didn't get off to the best of starts when we didn't get the non-smoking room we'd asked for, but instead were offered something that smelt like an ashtray. The receptionist dealt with it excellently though and despite the hotel being very full came up with a solution. The beds were comfortable, the rooms clean and breakfast excellent. Wifi... More

This hotel has a good breakfirst and nice but small rooms. Beware if you want to access the internet it is an extra charge, which is quite expensive. The location close to the center of the city and not far from the railway station.

My group of 40 retired businessmen and wives stayed here again this year because we enjoyed our visit so much. As last year, the staff, service, food (breakfast and dinner) and rooms were excellent. The hotel is about 10 - 15 mins from the city centre for visits, coffees etc. Mechelen is very well situated so we were able to... More

We booked this room through Kayak's website which indicated this hotel was 8.2 miles from the airport. The taxi ride was $60 from and to the airport and is definitely much further out than 8.2 miles. The hotel itself was very clean and the receptionist could not have been any nicer. She even prepared our breakfast by 6 a,m. (normally... More

I stayed here recently on a business trip. The reception area is very dark and un-inviting, but the staff were helpful. My room had clearly been used by a smoker, as others have mentioned, it smelt of stale smoke. The room was OK, although I had 2 beds put together rather than a real double bed. The hotel was well...

I chose this hotel for its location to the motorway and the centre of town. The rooms are spacious, so is the bathroom. Free WiFi which to my experience worked efficiently all over the premises. Large breakfast buffet, which covers all needs. The staff was service minded, efficient and good humoured. On the negative side: free parking was on the... More

My first impression from the reception lobby was not good, there was an odd smell in the air (and it lasted for the entire week). I've stayed in a room in the first floor facing the river and the street. My room was quite comfy and the place is not noisy. I was in a work trip and had some... More

I stayed at the hotel few times and the overall experience was ok. The peronnel is friendly and the dinner menu is quite fancy with interesting options (including game). However the list time I stayed there, I had the unpleasant experience to get a room for smokers (the same thing happened to other two colleagues who stayed there in the... More
