Had a great view of the cathedral from our room and the hotel is close to the main square. The hotel has great character and the rooms are a good size. I would definitely recommend. The continental breakfast had quite a large range and there is a bar/restaurant. Only downsides were the double bed was a European double (two singles... More

We stayed here on Saturday 28 May. The hotel is ideally located for the Grote Markt and it's joys. We were pleased with our room and certainly the rate. The downstairs area and restaurant/bar had had a lot of thought and care put into it. The rooms were clean and basic, but what more do you want than a comfortable... More

I stayed at this cute hotel for 3 nights. The rooms are basic, but they are taken care withh a great attention to detail. The room was arranged beautifully and it had a great feeling of tranquility. My room faced the square and the church and the view was amazing. The hotel has a courtyard with the most beautiful fountain.... More

We upgraded before arrival to an executive double, I dread to think what our original room would have been like. On arrival, there was no one at reception; even though we arrived well before 9pm. I found a waitress who sourced our key and told us where I room was. The room was very basic, with two small singles pushed... More

Mechelen was a lovely surprise on my recent trip to Belgium - & Hotel den Wolsack exceeded my expectations. A gracious European hotel in a wonderful historic building mere yards from the historic old market square. It was quite literally next to the cathedral. My room had a view of the cathedral tower and the neighboring park, & the carillon... More

I spent just two nights here on business. The hotel is in a great location, right opposite the Cathedral, which was a concern initially due to the amount of chiming that comes out of the almost 100mtr tall tower. Thankfully this seemed to be switched off between 11-00pm and 6-00am. The staff were very friendly, the room I had (33)... More

Hotel is outdated, so no more than 2 starts. In the evening the personnel in reception are the waiters from the restaurant. In the morning, the personnel in the breakfast room (very poor breakfast) is the person in reception… Location is good, and price is also cheaper (not cheap indeed) than other hotels in Mechelen.

Well located for centre of Mechelen. Opposite the cathedral with good public parking under the square. Rooms very average and a bit tired. Staff splendid. Breakfast OK. I wouldn't go out of my way to return, but neither would I object if I was in town again.

This hotel is located in conveniently in the center of town and within walking distance of everything you could want in Mechelen. The staff if very courteous and helpful, and overall things are OK. The Good: Breakfast is straight and to the point. Eggs and Bacon, a little bit of everything, gets the job done. The room has new TV's... More
