“deceiving surroundings”
Reviewed 17 September 2013

I booked this hotel based upon reviews on this site as we normally stay at Martins hotels when in Belgium so I as prepared for building works upon arrival but you never really know until you arrive and see for yourself..... However, whilst there are building works being carried out they appear to be coming towards an end, so future travellers may not experience the building site feel as approaching the hotel. Irrespective of the building works I have to stay the hotel & the staff were 1st class. We travelled as a family with a 11 month old baby and the hotel couldn't do enough for us. We had a large family suite which is like a self contained flat & this had everything we needed. The main room, along with the bedroom & bathroom was superb, clean, modern & spaceous and quiet, with no noise from the surrounding area. Breakfast was brought to our room every morning, at the exact time we requested. Staff were always on hand to give advise and recommendations. Very pleased we chose this hotel & will definitely be back when passing next time. Well done, keep up the go work.

Room Tip: we had ground floor room, but this wasn't an issue and very handy for the pushchair. no noise ei...

We were a bit unsure when we drew up at the Vixx as its a bit of a building site however this turned out to be a perfect location and we were not troubled by any building noise. The balcony on the apartment hadn't been finished but everything else seemed to be done in the hotel. Mechelen is a lovely town and the shops and restaurants are just along the road and the beautiful town square round the corner. The hotel were very helpful with maps to get to the hotel and other places, train information to get into Brussels and allowed us a slightly later check out.

The apartment worked extremely well as we had our son with us and he had the sofa bed in the lounge. The apartment was big so having the sofa folded down was not a problem. He loved the mood lights and had the room in every colour possible.

Even though this is a very new place the white decor and flooring was already looking rather grubby. On arrival the apartment was not as clean as I had hoped. The fridge hadn't been cleaned at all. However after the first day the standards were much improved. Every day there seemed to be totally different people working so presume the cleaner changed as well.

There is a design fault with the shower which caused a bit of flooding but the hotel are aware of this and are planning an alteration. It was easily wiped up with the towels but still a nuisance.

On the first morning at breakfast there was mouldy fruit in the basket full of fruit flies but again this was only a problem on the first day. Looks like there is a weakness in staff on one day. The rest of the breakfast was good.

Big chunks of Mechelen are currently undergoing redevelopment, and this hotel is one of the first new buildings to open in the Muntstraat area, meaning that the area at the moment is somewhat less than picturesque. However, the hotel itself is pretty amazing, and we would agree with the general comments of previous reviews.....excellent value at the moment, grab it while you can!!

And skipping the French holiday altogether. Stayed here en route from Provence to the Hull ferry at Zeebrugge; a wonderful choice, many thanks, fellow Trip Advisors.
Hotel Vixx has ruined my life. Having no previous experience of luxury and style like this (done a lot of camping) how can I contemplate a hotel stay without my own coffee machine, a choice of rain shower or huge free-standing bath, or two televisions? The serene white and aqua colour scheme is also to my taste.
Mechelen is undertaking a massive road renovation scheme; download the hotel's own directions for finding it -GPS is still out of date, and the hotel's garage- though secure parking- is unmarked at the moment and I took a couple of turns round the block...

Room Tip: Room 8 has a delightful private rooftop terrace with a table and two chairs; perfect spot to listen...

What a find! We only stayed for one night but wished we were there longer! Great hotel very close to the centre of Mechelen. Huge suite with your own kitchen area, amazing coffee machine and fridge. Hi tech lighting and TV systems and an amazing bathroom! It 's like having your very own luxury apartment rather than a hotel room! Helpful, friendly staff. Underground parking across the street a bonus!

Lovely hotel and people very good value for the facilities available. Highly recommend the Vixx. Clean room, very spacious and very convenient to the square and a good location for the train station. Tip make sure the taxi knows its a one way street to access the hotel.

Stayed for a two night weekend break in this wonderful little hotel. Located in a quiet street, two minutes' walk from the central square with it's restaurants and cathedral. Saturday market is worth a visit.
The suite was clean, spacious and very well-equiped, with ultra-modern furniture, decor and beautiful mood-lighting which allows you to change the colour of the light in the rooms.
Extremely friendly and helpful staff; tasty, generous breakfasts, unlimited delicious coffee.
Secure underground hotel car park just across the street.
Would love to return soon. Thanks to Vixx Hotel and staff for a great stay.
