Location of the hotel was it's best asset. Mechelen is a small city and from the hotel everything is within walkin distance. Check in was not like you would expect in a four star hotel. Uninviting and the only reason I knew why I was asked to enter my pin of my creditcard was reading reviews on TA. Our room... More

For a short stay this business hotel is ok to stay. Rooms are nice but missing a shower in the room. I do not favor bath tubs especially the ones without a hook for the shower head. Breakfast is rich but expensive and separate from the booking. Bar is typical business people- go out for a drink or dinner!

Lovely hotel, very nice staff. The room was a great size for our family (2 adults and 2 adolescents). Very central for visiting Mechelen on foot. The breakfast was excellent and we hope to return again.

This hotel, in the heart of Mechelen, is ideal for business travellers and tourists. It's location means that if you don't want to use the nice room service or hotel restaurant, there are plenty of great restaurants and bars just on your doorstep. There's even a supermarket (open 8-8) for your Belgian chocolate and beer supplies! The best thing about... More

Standard Novotel qualiity. you can't really go wrong in choosing it. It has a gym and a bar restaurant so it covers more or less all the services you may want. it is walking distance to everything so you can take good advantage from the position.
