          Rooms are OK, location is good at the entrance to the old town, free parking nearby. Breakfast does not meet the standards of a 4-star-hotel: Small selection of bread cover, everything short, no refill of food (e.g. no rolls, no orange juice, and so on)....More

          Stayed here two nights on a business trip. I would be happy to stay here again if I return to Mechelen. There's nothing spectacular at all about this hotel, but it's quiet, clean and reasonably-priced. The breakfast buffet is very good. Located a mile or...More

          Comfortable bed and very friendly staff are the upside. Downside is the lack of parking (its quite hard to find somewhere nearby to park even out of the busy season), little bit dated ... the bedroom was ok but the bathroom very tiny and shower...More

          Have 3 rooms for smokers end they give me one of those rooms... and I never smoke. They do not care, they do not ask. The room smells horible. Bad room, bad management. I can't give 0 rating so I rated 1.

          Nice small hotel ideally located between Antwerpen and Brussels, and close to Tomorrowland in Boom. 24 hour service and very friendly and helpful reception. Nice breakfast. Located right next to the canal.
