Stayed here in a group of 11 or so, some booked via the internet, some by phone. None of us were told that the hotel is undergoing major renovation! For your enjoyment the reception area is down a scabby alley, is tiny and whoever is unlucky enough to be managing it also has to deal with phone enquiries too, just... More

....... all the public rooms are currently being ripped out and refurbished. The place is a building site with an entrance in an alley at the back, staffed by an unfortunate girl who must endure the wrath of unhappy customers. Where was the duty manager, I ask myself?

This hotel is a perfect choice if you are there for a short business trip. It is very central, everything is within short walking distance, although you could also use an underground parking. The hotel offers nice, clean rooms of decent size and all the necessary facilities, has good wifi coverage in rooms (free slow connection, or paid fast), the... More

This is a fairly standard HIExpress property - comfortable, clean rooms, and the central location is a plus. 5 minutes (or even less) and you're in the central square. Easy check-in/check-out, only real flaw was the lamentably skimpy breakfast but this is also par for the course with Holiday Inn Express. Would definitely stay again.

Stayed for one night only but the hotel was exactly as you would expect from Holiday Inn Express. A very comfortable room and a nice continental breakfast at a very reasonable rate. Staff were very polite and helpful. I'd happily stay here again if I'm ever back In Mechelen.

We stayed here last night and were very pleased and will be returning again. We loved the location and the staff were very friendly. The room was adequate and the wifi was good. The breakfast was adequate. My only niggle would be the cheap toilet paper and hard pillows. Thanks for a great stay :)

Holiday Inn Express in Mechelen was quite a surprise not just that it was situated in the city centre but also how modern and clean it was with a handful of staff on standby day and night. The nine storey white building did not seem out of place with its surrounding - it blended in well with the old. The... More

I booked this hotel because my normal haunts were fully booked, or charging exorbitant rates due to a convention. There is no fitness center, a personal preference, but that is made clear on their website. Bottom Line - I recommend this hotel as an option when hotels in Brussels are overbooked or overpriced.
