Hotel room was good size ,WiFi worked well. As this was Sunday night, it was surprisingly calm.Staff was polite. But We had issue with financial arrange ments.I dont know if other guests had such unappropriate situation, before arrival my card had three reservation of different amounts.When I mentioned to receptionist, the girl šādi on a day of departure We will pay actual invoice and than reserved amounts will be released.Four days after. Departure, hotel again reserved the same amount they charged us in full on departure. I called to hotel and asked why they do it.Person on other end that its unlikely. But I see this double charge on my bank state,ent. Very upsetting.All positive impressions are melted. Just sārņi g if you give your creditcard details to this hotel, watch your bank account care full y!!!!

Thank you for leaving your feedback. First of all, please accept my sincere apologies for the inconvenience. The receptionist was correct in saying that the amount would be released automatically as this is only an authorization. I don't know what went wrong but please be assured that I'm following up on this with reception. I have asked them to check this immediately. I fully understand that this must be very upsetting for you. Kind regards, Emilie

This hotel is “my home away of home”. I’m a recurring customer, as I go yearly to Mechelen. It’s the best hotel experience you can have! The hotel is fantastic and the warmness of all the employees of all the hotel make you feel at home! They even reserve at my request the same room year after year. The perfect stay!

We stayed one night at Martin's Patershof. The hotel is unique and great for people who love nice architecture. We stayed "Exceptional Best Of Home" room". The room has beautiful arches, and it is really unique experience. The location is good, just half an hour drive from Brussels and walking distance from Mechelen city center.

Thank you very much for your kind review! You have stayed in our most unique 'Best of Home' room, the only room with 5 beautiful stained glass windows. Whenever the sun hits the stained glass windows a stunning range of rainbow colors appears. Mechelen is indeed ideally located between Antwerp and Brussels and within walking distance of the historic center. Looking forward to welcoming you again in the future! Kind regards, Emilie

The hotel is certainly interesting as it is a church. However, in an ordinary standard room, you don't get any special feeling of that you are in a church, which was a slight disappointment, It's more or less like just any hotel room. The restaurant that was located in the major church room with the altar in front, was the only place that felt special. Apart from that, it was a clean and quiet room with a comfortable bed.

Thank you for leaving a review and mentioning that you found our breakfast area special and the room clean and quiet! We have a total of 79 rooms of which 23 rooms are located in the monastery. The rooms in this part have no ecclesiastical elements, this is also stated in the description of the room type. Apart from this room type, all our other rooms have ecclesiastical elements, so don't hesitate to choose 1 of our other room types next time! Hopefully, we can welcome you again in the future! Kind regards, Emilie

On booking.com extra comment was added, honeymoon trip. No acknowledgement was received from the hotel regarding this. Emails we received was over and over again to upgrade the room and extra services. Little acknowledgement of congratulations and thank you for choosing us was enough as customer service. Easy fast check in. Room location was well explained. The room itself was very nice, size wise and clean. slippers, bath rope and extras were foreseen. Also there was a little welcome card with a cookie for the honeymoon. Thank you.

Good large room, though difficult to keep warm (the thermostat didn’t seem to be doing much). Comfortable bed and a nice large jet tub. Good water pressure. Nice breakfast - they had hot food and fresh bread, as well as a large selection of other typical items. Lunch was delicious and the restaurant - unusual (vestiges of its church past). Some negatives: I thought they could have had better setup for the meeting rooms. Way too small given the covid situation. We had to keep windows and the door open and wear masks for 2 days. The bathroom in the lobby was extremely hot and didn’t smell very good. Coffee at breakfast wasn’t good. The room didn’t have slippers.

Thank you for your feedback which is very valuable to us. We offer a very wide range of products for breakfast, what better way to start your day than with a great breakfast at Martin's Patershof! Unfortunately, we can't make any changes to our meeting rooms, the covid situation did not make it easy for us. That is why we are currently only accepting a limited number of people for these meeting rooms so that we can offer optimal comfort in a very challenging period. Every room has slippers, but they are at the bottom of the wardrobe, my sincere apologies if they were missing in your room, you can of course always obtain them free of charge at the reception. Looking forward to welcoming you again for your business trip, meeting trip or leisure trip during the weekend! Kind regards, Emilie

Thank you for your great review! Mechelen is a very historical, cozy welcoming city in the center of Belgium. It's a must-see whenever visiting Belgium. Martin's Patershof is the cherry on top, located in a former church. Looking forward to welcoming you again whenever you plan your next visit to Mechelen! Kind regards, Emilie

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.
