In centre of town

Posted 20-Jul-2014
Pros: Not much. They are basic and overpriced. The Hilton Garden Inn in Leiden was far superior in every way, and cheaper per night.
Cons: Everything
Location: Good location
Out of the 3 hotels we stayed in on our holiday,this was the worst. Could'nt get the pop up basin plug to work, and when we asked at reception why it hadn't been repaired, we were told that this was Mercure policy as guests allowed the sinks to overflow and flood the room! They suggested that you put a face cloth in the bottom of the sink but guess what the water still runs out, and you must use 4 times the amount of water than if the plug worked. Will never stay in a Mercure hotel again.

Great Location, Nice Staff

Posted 15-Jul-2014 on Hotels.com
Second time I stayed there, room only for 5 days. Nice friendly staff, hotel situated in the cultural old fish market area of this lovely town. Rooms well sized, good beds, didn't try breakfast but looked standard to good. Defo recommend for convenience and nice hotel for romantic weekends or entertaining. Any rooms at the front of the hotel could be a bit noisy if there are any cultural things going on, so best check whats on and ask for rooms away from front. or down the side lane area leading up to the cathedral. Any Mechelen virgins would love this City.....lots to see and do and plenty of restaurants and bar sensibly priced. Beer lovers heaven!

Decent hotel, friendly service

Posted 03-Dec-2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel has obviously been through an update recently and the decor is fresh and modern throughout. The room was clean and spacious and fairly quiet. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the location was nice, within easy walking distance of the town and some bars / restaurants on the doorstep. There was a coffee machine and some coffee pods for it, but it would have been nice to have a kettle and some other options for a hot drink as well. The bathroom wasn't great, being designed as a sort of wet room, which meant it was impossible to have a shower without getting water everywhere and having to mop up afterwards. My main issue was the charge for the pool (cheapest in the 'discount hours' at 9 Euro). This is completely over the top, in fact, when a hotel has facilities such as this and I've paid for a room I wouldn't expect to be charged extra to use them.

Nice Hotel, interesting building

Posted 21-Oct-2013 on Hotels.com
Very nice hotel in a very interesting building. Room was immaculate, service was very good, a little bit more than I would expect to pay for this level of Hotel but that might be just Belgium. Parking across the river was expensive per night.

Clean, modern, well located hotel.

Posted 27-Aug-2013 on Hotels.com
the stay was good overall. However, the pool is not open in the morning and one of the members of staff did not appear to be very knowledgeable about the hotel and facilities.

Hotel Mercure Vé Mechelen, Jul 2013

Posted 22-Aug-2013 on Hotels.com
Room was very clean and comfy. Located in a vibrant street with lots of pavement cafe's. Hotel is very Quirky, Receptionists pleasant. However the service in the Bar was non existent, Room Service did not answer phone, and Breakfast expensive, which let it down.

Nice, modern, comfortable hotel in Mechelen

Posted 19-Jul-2013
The hotel's location is perfect, by the river where there is some action (considering Mechelen). Very friendly staff and nicely decorated room with comfortable bed. Breakfast buffet was above average. Recommended for short stays in Mechelen.

Great, apart from a lack of hot water at a couple of awkward times - quickly sorted out.
