Clean, sober, well-located hotel. Stayed there for the fourth time this year, last time on the 29/11 night, and I keep enjoying the customer service at check-in/check-out. Breakfast could be improved.

Stayed at the Holiday Inn in Mechelen for two nights in November 2016, Ideally sited near the market square and restaurants. The rooms are reasonably sized and very comfortable, free Wi-Fi throughout. The staff were friendly and very helpful, they even supplied me with an power adapter. The breakfast area doubles as a bar at night. There is a fully...

Central location in the historic center, easy to reach on foot, by bus, or by taxi. Clean, comfortable, nice staff. Adequate breakfast for this price (125 for single occupancy, double room). International newspapers in the lobby. Free wifi, as in, not even a password needed. Definitely recommended.

To be fair, it's a budget hotel and the price reflects that. The rooms are comfortable, not spacious, but everything felt like it had seen better days. Really excellent location for evening food/walks in the downtown area. The staff were friendly and helpful. Air conditioning unit was a problem for the first few nights. Again, due to the age of...

I love staying at any Holiday Inn. When I have a choice, it is Holiday Inn. The staff is so friendly. Also at this location they have a fully stocked area to purchase snacks, drinks or anything you may have forgotten such as shampoo. I also really like that they are thinking of the environment. The soap and shampoo are...

Difficult to find at first. Right at the city center. Room was clean and comfortable with satellite TV and wifi provided. Staff was very helpful, multi-lingual and friendly. Breakfast buffet was excellent. Walking distance to the main city square along the cobble stoned streets, just exit the hotel and take the first right. Beautiful square surrounded by 500 year old...

The location of the hotel is its USP. very close to the bus stand and the train station. Both Brussels & Antwerp are very easily accessible. The Market is also nearby. Only negative thing i found is that they don't provide a fridge in their room.

The hotel needs some updating, but the location is good. First off, the shower drain was clogged. which seems to be a fairly consistent problem at hotels. I'm not sure why the Housekeeping doesn't clean the hair out of the shower drains as part of their daily routine because a drain which is clogged with the "who knows what" of...

The hotel is 20mins walk from the train station. It's a rather straight forward walk so you can't really get lost. There are also buses and taxis that can get you there although we didn't try those. We stayed here for a night and there is nothing we would fault. It's a holiday inn express so there were no frills....
