I did not know Mechelen and the city was a very nice surprise. Staying in this amazing hotel very close to the city centre was a treat. Amazing room, good breakfast, friendly service and a very good deal. Highly recommended.

A very nice hotel. It’s a former cloister and church that has been transformed to a hotel. They did that very nice with respect for the all the former details such as the stained glass windows. Good buffet breakfast with cava if you like. Friendly personnel. The hotel is located in the centre of the town. Main attractions within 5 to 10 minutes walk. Unlike modern concrete hotels with soundproof rooms you can hear the occassional rumour but that’s not annoing.

Lovely hotel built in an old church. Rooms are unbelievable with lovely stained glass windows. Stayed in a room on the second floor with a jet bath. Rooms were very spacious. Staff from check in to checkout were very helpful and welcoming. Breakfast was good. Wide range of drinks in the bar.

First of all when you arrive ,you've got the feeling to be in an old church which is already unique for an hotel! Afterward there is a great service and organization, everything is clean an adapted for COVID. But when you arrive in your bedroom WOUAA ! the stained glasses. the first time we went in a "Great Double" and the last one was "Exceptional Double" We walk in the city realy very very clean, we visit the Cathedral and other churchs ,went to the Grote Mart. We already went twice there but we certainly go more !!!!!

Thank you for leaving this wonderful review and mentioning our great service and organization! It's lovely to see that you enjoyed your stay and our beautiful rooms! Mechelen has a lot of churches with the Cathedral and of course Martin's Patershof as the highlights ;). I agree that Mechelen is a very clean city, many city workers are cleaning every day to keep it clean for your visitors! We are looking forward to your next stay! Kind regards, Emilie - Hotel Manager

Good: - Location - Thematization - Almost all staf is very friendly Bad: - Some furniture doesn’t match the floorplan well, which resulted in our room feeling more crampted than could have been - Bathroom is not up to standards for a 4 star hotel (no separate shower, in-bath shower very average and strange design decisions), out of theme and a bit worn out - Small parking and no reservation possible Due to Covid we had to move our stay to another date. The staf was very helpful in making this happen, but forgot that we’d booked an upgrade from a Charming to a Great room. When we arrived, there were no more spare Great rooms. Not a big deal, but a bit unpleasant.

Thank you for leaving a review! You're right, we do have a very friendly staff! Thank you for your detailed feedback, it allows us to improve our quality. We are planning some renovations such as replacing some of the furniture and painting. I will also review and optimize each layout if necessary. I'm sorry for the misunderstanding regarding your upgrade, I can imagine that this was indeed a bit unpleasant. Hopefully, we'll see you again in the future, if you copy this mail I'll personally make sure everything is in tip-top shape! Kind regards, Emilie
