I stay at Al Mulino regularly when in the area on business and I have to say that it's a little gem of a place.
It's a converted windmill which gives it loads of character and the Italian family who own and run it are incredibly friendly and helpful.
The rooms are modern and, whilst they may not be to everyone's taste (bathroom is not a separate room but WC is separate), the beds are comfy and I always sleep like a log. The only thing I would change are the pillows - square pillows are not the easiest for Brits.
The fact I always sleep well may also have something to do with the fantastic Italian restaurant in the hotel. They have changed chef recently and the last 4 / 5 meals I have had have been truly outstanding - on a par with anything I tasted in Milan when living there. I would say it is refined yet simple Italian food. The quality of the produce is optimal which is the key to great Italian cooking.
The wine selection is fantastic and the ambience perfect. The place itself is very smart and the service is always spot on.
I would suggest al Mulino for a romantic night away or, if you like your shopping, try combining it with a trip to Maasmechelen Outlet Village which is only 10 minutes away. Well worth it.
