Recently refurbished local hotel with a funky Pizzeria attached. Well located near the cathedral and the main square. The hotel is a good budget choice. I used it as a cheaper option than staying in the often over-priced offerings in Antwerp. Mechelen is a provincial place, but perfectly good for travelling to Antwerp or Brussels. The Dossin barracks memorial museum...

Rather new hotel, well located, but rooms are barely ok - not very well finished, cheap furnitures, beds are just ok, and it is touch to get hot water in the morning. I also discovered the (hairy) soap from my predecessor in the shower... The lady at the check out has been totally ignoring my comments ( not even an...

Lovely hotel which was so close to the Cathedral. The rooms were clean and customer service approachable and helpful. The beds were soft and comfortable and the bathrooms well maintained. Very close to local restaurants and attractions. Would greatly recommend to anyone visiting the area on business or holidays.

This is a nice relaxing hotel right in the centre of Mechelen a one minute walk from the lovely town square and Cathedral. The hotel is basic but very comfortable. There is a pizza restaurant on site with a traditional clay oven. These looked excellent although having already eaten I didn't sample one. The staff at the hotel are friendly...

Nice and clean Hotel, very quiet and peaceful. Wonderful location in the centre of Mechelen. The breakfast room overlooking the cathedral was something that I didn't expect, wonderful view and good breakfast. Staff was helpful and friendly. Recommended!

We booked for one night ( with a gift voucher from Bongo ). Lady at reception was nice but did not give any info on the hotel amenities , places to see etc. We know Mechelen so it wasn't a problem but I can imagine that tourists from abroad would feel more welcome if given more information and guidance. We...

To set the scene, I was in Mechelen for three days on business and needed somewhere to sleep and nothing more. The location of the hotel is superb. If it was any closer to the cathedral it would be in it - I've never stayed anywhere so close to the centre of a city, even if it is a small...

Hotel is located at the center of Mechelen, in a walking distance to all restaurants and bars. The rooms are small but they are clean and comfortable. The breakfast could be better but was not bad either. The staff is friendly. The wireless internet is free but little slow. If you go by your car, parking could be a problem.

This is our first visit to this hotel. Absolutely fine though maintenance could be updated. A few minor irritations like loo continually running. Shower was good and the bedroom was clean and functional. Shame they charge 10 euros extra for a fairly mundane breakfast. There were warm hard boiled eggs and some cold meats. The coffee was good and unlimited...
