“perfect location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2012

The hotel is located on a narrow street just after a corner to the Grote Markt (main plaza in Mechelen/Maline).

The photos with the cathedral are about the view you have from 3rd floor where you may have breakfast.

The rooms are clean and cosy.

The hotel does not have restaurant for dinner or lunch, but they can recommend a good one ('t Oude Conservatorium) or you may find one for your tastes around the main market.

There is no 24h reception available, so remember the instructions you are given at check-in in order to pass by the secured door if you come back into the room late at night (22 - 23h).


Overall: simple check-in/check-out, all-you-can eat breakfast.

We had some WiFi inside the room, but I don't remember if we were lucky or it was included.

Ask at the reception if you really need internet.

Recommended for couples, day-trips to Anvers/Antwerpen, and for the ones that enjoy quite stays in not-so-busy towns.

This hotel is at a great location but it is having an amateurish ambiance. The rooms are too small and likely to be constructed by a builder lacking experience as components are falling apart, toilets are too low, shower doors cannot completely open, shower head is coming from wall , mirrors can easily break by the doorknob touching it.
I opted for this hotel due to price and location but would not return nor advice to other travelers.

Stayed here for one night, price / quality ratio is fantastic, room is clean and modern, and warm (it was snowing outside), check in was fast, efficient and pleasant, with staff giving advice on where to shop, eat and drink in the town centre.

Highly recommended.

Booked Hotel as we were visiting some relatives who lived out of Mechelen. The reception staff were most helpfull when we booked in and explained the situation concerning getting into hotel after hours. We found our room (212) to be bright and cheerfull with more than enough room. The bath area although on the small size was adequate for us. Only problem we had with room was that hot water took ages to come on stream from the shower or tap. The view from the dinning room on 3rd floor onto the cathederal was fantastic the food was what you would expect from a European hotel (cerial juices breads meats cheese etc) but well presented. The location is fantastic right next to the cathederal town square and the shops and cafes. It is about a five minute bus ride to the train station. Just up the road at start of shopping area are 2 chocolate shops Godiva and Mechins. We stayed at this hotel for 6 days and would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to others.

This is a terrible hotel with non existent customer service our room was tiny as was the bathroom, if you arrive late you will find there is no receptionist and the hotel will be locked and in darkness, breakfast isn't worth having, find somewhere else to stay.

Room Tip: Find another Hotel

When I was leaving the restaurant, I noticed that my headphones were missing. I am 100% sure that I put them on the bedside table the first day I arrived. So at some time during the three days I spent there they stole or lost my $100 headphones.

I contacted them about this and their answer was that they could not do anything about it. They said that that was a "serious accusation" and that they will need to "contact the police" and have them investigate. Screw that!! I have better things to do with my time. And in the future I am just going to avoid this hotel.

Room Tip: Some rooms face the cathedral. They have a much nicer view.

I'm here for a business trip, so I can't really say much about the pricing. The service is great, I had some problems with the mosquitoes and the receptionist offered me in a very short time from my complaint an anti-mosquito device. All the receptionists were very helpful in offering directions to the best restaurants and pubs around the area.
My room was big enough and I find it a plus that there are also some English TV channels, not only French/ Flemish ones.
The hotel is in the VERY CENTER of Mechelen.. so if you're looking for that, go for it.
