Hotel description Martin's Patershof

A timeless welcome As it has done for over a hundred years, the building's open door offers a warm welcome. Glass doors part and we enter the body of the church. There is a stunning perspective down the nave, now the lobby, with serried ranks of columns ancient and modern. Photographs of the original stained glass windows are projected onto the white tiled floor in a kaleidoscopic gesture of welcome. Inviting ruby red sofas line the way to the choir which calls from the distance. A contemporary welcome tinged with ancient warmth. Offering free Wi-Fi, Martin's Patershof hotel in the heart of historical Mechelen offers unique accommodation in a former church. Brussels and Antwerp are 30 minutes by train from Mechelen Station, 1 km away. Combining original features with modern design, the stylish rooms provide a minibar and private bathroom. Every morning, Martins Patershof offers a healthy buffet breakfast with a glass of cava in the impressive choir of the old church building. Martin's Bar offers a wide range of Belgian beers, cocktails and whiskeys and free tapas at the end of the afternoon.

Located in an old church, this is really something out of the ordinary.

Breakfast only from 7 am onwards. Quite expensive, however the hotel was almost full.

Friendliness personnel: the bar was closed, but they were able to serve me a drink while it was late. The hotel archtecture is a unique piece of work.

The hotel parking is what makes the hotel not suitable for guests with a car: the cost is 25 euro per night(!), while the garage is a near guaranteed environment to wreck your vehicle. I was lucky to drive a small well insured rental car. I would not recommend the garage to my best friends. The cost of the garage made me decide to skip breakfast. My apologies to the cook.

Very nice hotel, located in a former church and very close to the Grote Markt (city center) of Mechelen.

Breakfast is good but too expensive.
