Our stay at Holiday Inn Express Mechelen was surprisingly nice. Their rooms were spacious, with a sofa cum bed included. Receptionists were very helpful with directions. Mechelen is a quaint little town. the hotel is walkable distance from grote market which is nice for a evening stroll. They provided a hearty breakfast, and also the room was equipped with a double bed and a sofa cum bed.

This is a hotel with a very nice location, in the best part of Mechelen in my point of view. The rooms are plain but good enough, and compared to other hotels in the area a bit better. The staff seems to be eager to walk that extra mile for you, so whatever you ask – they will fix it, is the feeling. The breakfast is, as always in Belgium, a bit better. Mechelen is a city with a fantastic story, l recommend you learn more about it, so if you are a tourist this hotel is a perfect start for such visit.

Room Tip: Become a member of IGH club can be an option

This hotel meets all the expectations of the HI Express formula. It is a no nonsense hotel with a friendly atmoshpere and very service minded staff.

The location of the hotel is in a rather quiet area with a nice old church nearby. From the outside the looks of the hotel are not that great but when you walk in it immediately feels OK. The Check-in area is modest but there is a nice open space with a bar and plenty of seating space behind it. In this area also the breakfast is served.
The hotel does not have a kitchen but there is a "snack wall" that offers chilled drinks, including some beers, snacks like crisps and candy bars and also a few microwave snacks, like i.e. noodles that can be heated in the Microwave that also resides in the wall. All of this is offered at very acceptable prices.

If you fancy a real meal you can walk out and find a restaurant in the neighbourhood OR you can have the reception order a Pizza at a delivery service. They make the call for you and you can eat it either in the bar area or take it up to your room.

The room is as expected, it has everything one would need for a short stay. it was clean, spacy and also offered a watercooker with instant coffee and tea.
In the room there is a small desk to work on and a small flatscreen TV.

The bathroom is basic with a sink, a shower and a toilet, nothing special but again it fits the Express formula.

Breakfast offers all the basics, including a bit of pastry, fresh juices and boiled eggs.

Overall this hotel is a very pleasant one, it meets all the expectations but stood out by the high level of service that the staff offered, in particular Marjolein.

Room Tip: A room on the front ( street ) side of the hotel, you can hear the passing traffic but traffic is pretty low here so not a big issue

Stayed here for one week for business and was very pleased. HI's Staff are friendly and helpful, especially Kevin and Madeline, who were the perfect concierges. The room was always clean, breakfast had a great variety and was delicious, and hotel is perfectly located to all the sites of Mechelen. Will definitely stay again!
