After the experience in the Martin's hotel in Leuven, we decided to stay this time in Mechelen.
They did a great job to transfer a church in a hotel. When you enter the reception, you get already an impression of transformation. The personnel at the reception were very friendly and the room was available at 15:00 hours. Entering the room, the first impression was the darkness, but after opening the window with some daylight, you can see the decoration of the room, well done!
The use of wifi should be easy according to the reception: room and name, but that didn't work at all during the stay in the hotel, with a daily code I got access.
The breakfast was well done at a nice location and was included in de roomrate.
For a good dinner we went to two locations: De Kraanbrug (2x) and Restaurant Martinique.
Both restaurants are recommendable and on walking distance from the hotel.
The negative point of the hotel is the parking. Per day you have to pay € 25.00 and the access to a parking lot is not easy. Further to get your luggage from the car to the hotel is another experience.
Back to the hotel, the centre court should have been better decorated, the whole city of Mechelen is full with flowers, but the courtyard is colourless.
The bar in the lobby have a nice sitting arrangement, but you have to search for the barman when you like to be served.
