Stayed here for 3 nights and was very comfortable clean and welcoming. Breakfast was a nice selection and very good also. Was very close to the square and canal. Room are very different to any hotel iv stayed with the stained glass and the arches on the ceiling theres still so much of the church left. Very nice hotel.

I stayed here in June just for one night. That was enough. I can't complain about my stay. The hotel (old church) is unique but personally i prefer a room with normal windows where you can actually look outside or open the window for fresh air. Staying in a room where you can't look through the window gives a kind... More

I sleep very often in hotels because of my job so it is very difficult that I can be excited by a hotel! This is the place! Very impressive atmosphere above all when you have breakfast in the old church. Weak lights help the situation: you really feel like to be in a holy place and the nice breakfast brings... More

We stayed here one night on our way to France and I thought it would be a nice experience for the family. Although it is a unique setting it was an underwhelming experience that was overpriced. The room we were in was tired and in need of renovation. Breakfast and service was good.

This hotel delivered as promised. Extremelt comfortable bed, good air con, strong wifi in the room. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Everything was clean and fresh. And the capsule coffee machine in the room was a nice added extra. Car parking is handy, though expensive. They have lost some of the church atmosphere in how they have remodeled the... More

Had a multiple birthdaystay with the family in this hotel this WE. We had several rooms at the second floor of the church. It is indeed impressive and special to stay 2 high in a room in a church. The old architecture of the church is perfectly integrated in the hotel infrastructure. Very comfortable rooms and beds; Bathroom ok (not... More

Probably one of the best hotels in Mechelen. Great location and lovely reception staff. Breakfast is ok, but the layout of the breakfast bar could be improved somehow. Very comfortable rooms especially in the church part. Wifi can't always be relied on.

Transforming a church into a hotel is most likely a challenge. They did it very well indeed. The rooms are lovely, just lovely. I don't know what other word to use. The arches, windows, it's all genuine and authentic. One letdown, a double bed with two single mattresses. I have experienced this before and still do not understand. Why would... More

Had a room on the very top floor with a view of the stained glass window and parts of the giant arches of the church cutting through the room. Was very unique! Bed was a bit soft for my taste, but it worked well enough. There was also no sheet for the bed, only a way too heavy and warm... More
