This is ideal for a visit to Mechelen town centre. Everything was as it should have been or better. I would definitely stay again

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RAK1 Pleasant Surprise
I chose the Holiday Inn Express at Mechelen City Centre to be near the Brussels Airport without the higher cost of staying directly in Brussels. Not only was the hotel clean, compact, modern, and good value, but it was steps away from the heart of the city, which was a delight to visit. The friendly staff provided me with good advice and seemed very well informed. Next time, I will stay a little longer at this hotel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by FrancoL small bed (130 cm) and bad working airco
Room 203 was large but the double bed was very narrow (130 cm) and the matras was soft. The airco did not cool.
Breakfast buffet was OK but the hotel was full and the restaurant did not have enough tables/chairs for all customers.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Milo999 Mosquitoes and more Mosquitoes!
Hotel is fine, only problem I had, despite the windows being closed, was Mosquitoes in the room resulting in 30 bites and much discomfort. The hotel needs to be more pro-active and prevent this happening. I don't expect to be troubled by Mosquitoes in a modern European hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by wildol excellent location
Main asset of this hotel is the location. It is IN the town center and at walking distance of free parking space (douaneplein).
The hotel is new, price quality is good. Only minor: the beds are to soft for our taste.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Piet De Langhe humidity problem
We had a humidity problem in room 107. Because it was a room for disabled persons there was an open shower. But the water of the shower went straight on the carpet of the room. Therefore it was allways wet on the side of our bed. Not nice at all!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sander73 Very good renovated rooms
They are currently renovating the hotel. Two floors have been completed. The other floors, hallways, lobby and restaurant will be up next. I had a good stay there. It is right in the middle of the city but not to busy. I stayed there because of business in Brussels. The distance is not to far and the hotel is a good economic option with a fair spread of breakfast options. I will stay there the next time.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by cincykid77 Fairly rundown looking, unclean...
Maybe the place has seen better days, but even as a Holiday Inn Express, this place was basically a dump. The staff were nice and helpful, but the main thing it just wasn't clean or pleasant. For example, the bins with the laundry are out in the open by the elevators and on the floor I got off on by the elevator...

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by merry382 Pretty nice hotel
In average, this hotel was very nice choice for us.
Breakfast was good enough to enjoy.
In general, we didn't have any problem to stay here.
Only huge problem was the heater was broken and we visited around Christmas. Since its winter, when i entered to the room, window was still opened and i felt very cold from that. I asked to turn on heater but whole central heating system was broken at the wing of our side of hotel. To figure that out, hotel took more than an half hour and still didn't call to us why the heating doesn't work. Then I called to reception again to check what is going on there.
At the end, Hotel offered us to use electronic heater. It was definitely not enough to heat up the whole room.
We checked in hotel in the night so we didn't spend that much time in the room to feel the cold.
I hope next time, heater will work.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 From booking to leaving
...... the experience was brilliant. Nothing too much for the friendly, helpful staff. We stayed on our way to Italy and the following week, made sure we were in the area to stay again. Fabulous!

Its always good to come back to IHX Mechelen. Although IHX is no frills chain, Mechelen staff makes it welcoming place to stay for your business trips. Quality and standard is guaranteed and if issues pop up (they do happen) matter is solved asap.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by FrPJ Fabulous staff - poor room
The room was very disappointing. The open shower drained to the room carpet rather than the drain! Walls/windows did not prevent noise - we thought the window was open. Not enough electric outlets.
The staff, led by Mgr., Joris, were spectacular! Very caring and genuinely pleasant. We would go directly there for that at the next opportunity despite the room. Great breakfast included.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by allblack71 No lift from basement car park
Hotel well situated in centre of Mechelen.
Parked in underground car park on arrival only to find there was no lift to reception. Forced to push son's wheelchair up very steep ramp to access reception on ground floor; only just managed to do this! Disabled guests with Blue Badge permit also pay 16euro daily charge.
Despite booking accessible room which was not evident to receptionist on arrival she immedidately secured suitable room for our stay, much to my relief.
Breakfast was nice experience; cold buffet items, simple but effective.
Temperature was difficult to control within accessible room at front of hotel with too much noise from street outside. Room was spacious however and easy to get around in wheelchair.
Needed internal lift to access room but it was small and difficult to access (with storage of laundry crates on ground floor entry).
Reception staff helpful and polite at all times. I took recommendation of which chocolate shop to visit....very nice!!
Good choice of literature showing places to visit. Took the opportunity to visit nearby Kazerne Dossin.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Will132 Why can't this hotel be above average?
I've stayed here several times. It's ok. Just ok. Nothing about it exceeds expectations. It could use some fresh paint, it is high-priced. Frankly, I only stay here for the points. It is a very typical European hotel. Mini-parking spaces at high prices and mini rooms. I stay here on business. Would never stay here for pleasure.

Fantastic location to the beautiful city of Mechelen, less than a minutes walk to the centre. Really professional, pleasant and helpful staff.
We used this on route to and from Italy and it started and finished the Holiday on an absolute high. Thank you to the team.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Amore99 Just ok!
The room size is fine, it's clean but the beds are small especially the sofa bed and very uncomfortable. There were no pillows and sheets to cover the sofa bed. If there are four people in a room, it should have 4 towels. No one answered in the entrance door to let us in after parking in the basement.
