Stayed in a room with church windows within the church. The whole place looks great but I found the room rather small and less stylish than I hoped it would be.
Furniture just a little off and not much space to hand up clothing.
Bathroom is bright and clean though and it is nice to have a separate toilet (not withing the bathroom).
Location is great, just 2 min walk from a great cozy square with restaurants.
The city is nice to for a day or two, food is of high standard in Mechelen, so is the service.
I phoned the hotel asking about parking and they said they have a garage, great, shame they 'forgot' to mention you have to pay for it ( €22.- per night!).
Breakfast is okay but quality / price is a little off. Tea and coffee out or themos cans, not being brought to your table. 'Orange juice' out of very small glases too.
You will not go hungry but I just expected a little more service/ quality.
In the summer I would recomend booking without breakfas and sitting on a terras on teh large square to have breakfast, probbably cheaper, better and with a view and accualy people serving your table.
If the decor was not so spectacular the reviews would be less positive I find.
It is little things like asking € 3.50 when you make coffee in your room with the cofee maker whilst on the large square in the center you get a great cup with complimetery chocolates or cookies at any of the restaurants for € 2.50.
Bar, lobby, halls all looks really great so it is a nice place for a romantic weekend or a quick stay but dont ecpext too much of the rooms, breakfast and service and you will be fine.
Overall a good place, probbaly the best or one of the better in teh city but they know it and can afford to lack on service or be a little expensive.
