Novotel Mechelen Centrum with kids: a review!

Last weekend we took a city trip to Mechelen with our daughter. This city is known as Children’s City of Belgium and as a result of our visit we already wrote the blog Mechelen with kids, in which we already listed all the fun activities in the city. During this city trip, we slept at the four-star hotel Novotel Mechelen Centrum and as a result of this overnight stay, we are writing this comprehensive review!

The hotel

We park our car for free on Friday evening just outside the center of Mechelen. Mechelen is not super big and we got to the hotel in a ten-minute walk. We chose this hotel partly because of its fantastic location. In fact, the hotel is less than a two-minute walk from the main market. So because of this, everything is also close to the hotel. Like, for example, a large supermarket located right behind the hotel. So ideal with kids when you need to get something quick!

In addition, what strikes us immediately upon entering the hotel is the fresh, modern look the hotel has. Everything looks new! Our daughter sees right near the reception area the kids’ play corner and immediately starts playing with the various toys that are here. As far as we are concerned, this is an immediate signal that the hotel is thus very family-friendly.

The hotel has five floors, with a gym and spa located on the fifth floor. This wellness consists of a Turkish bath that sits near the gym. So for parents who want to work up a sweat during a city break to Mechelen with kids, there are options at the hotel.

The room

We booked a triple room at the hotel and what we noticed right away in the room was that the room was very spacious. There is enough room for a box-spring bed and a sofa bed that can be converted into a double bed. Thus, the room can also be used for four people. The room also has a small desk with two chairs, where our daughter spent quite some time playing and coloring.

In the bathroom we had both a shower and a bathtub, which we like immensely. All three of us love bathing so of course we made frequent use of that. As far as we are concerned, the ultimate way to relax after a whole day of walking through a city! The room had a size of about 24m2.

Furthermore, the room is fully equipped. For example, the room has a large flat-screen TV with some Dutch channels as well, a safe, a refrigerator and even an ironing board. Also, the Internet connection was good and fast. So in terms of the room, nothing was really missing for us and it was an ideal room to relax with the family after a busy day in the city. All three of us slept wonderfully at the hotel!

Food and drink in hotel

Of course, the hotel also offers food and drink options. For example, there is a gourmet bar in the hotel, where you can enjoy a snack and a drink in the evening. Here they serve a variety of international dishes. Of course, because of the hotel’s location, you also have plenty of choices of restaurants and bars around the hotel. As we told you earlier, you can be at the Grand Place in a few minutes’ walk.

In the morning we took advantage of the hotel’s breakfast. This was really delicious and very elaborate. Everything you could wish for at a breakfast was here. Different breads, spreads, fresh egg, lots of sweet goodies, different juices, croissants, yogurt with different cereals, fresh fruit and much more. In that respect, you really don’t lack anything at breakfast and we left the hotel with a well-filled stomach.
