Chris T. Business - 16/03/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Enjoyed my stay but was disappointed to see in my final invoice that I had been charged for 2nts breakfast when I said I would "think" about having it. At no point did I actually state I wanted breakfast and certainly didn't have any.

Good experience

Businesstraveller Business - 06/03/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

I stayed at the Novotel for a business meeting. The Staff was very friendly, gave me a quiet room and when I arrived late for breakfast one day, they were sheerfull and let me have my breakfast whilst they started seting up the table instead of first cleaning the buffet. Thanks a lot! It made me strong for the day :-)

We take pride in catering to our guests’ needs the best way we can, and we appreciate your kind words about the quality service which we strive to uphold.

Good stay, well located, disappointing breakfeast

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Anonymous Business - 04/03/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

I'll come back, its been my best hotel experience in Mechelen so far. The bed is good, good shower and water pressure, easy to adjust air condition. It has the basics in good quality. The breakfeast is very disappointing and boring. The food overcooked and greasy, almost no vegan or lactose free options. The coffee is horrible. I did not enjoy any of the meals in the hotel during my stay. Its good that there is a supermarket just next to the hotel and many nice restaurants.

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. It is always a pleasure to welcome returning guests and we are glad we were once again able to meet your expectations. Knowing that we are your top choice whenever you visit Mechelen is the best compliment we could receive from you. We are sorry though to read your opinion of our breakfast offering, this is something which we will endeavour to review carefully and hope that you will have an improved experience on your next stay. We look forward to welcoming you back. Best regards, Daria Wabbes, Guest relations

Absolutely insufficient check-in procedures

Customer review rating 0.5/5

Ivan Business - 24/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

30 min to check in is an absolutely unacceptable time. after which the credit card number was not detected so I was forced to return to reception. untrained staff. Food quality (I dined twice in the hotel) not acceptable. Lastly the invoice sent by mail, it is not legible, there are no figures ......

Dear Ivan, Thank you for your quote about your stay at our hotel. There was indeed a queue at the front desk the day of your arrival. I kindly warned the booker of the group you where part of that this would be the case. Therefore she send out a message to the whole group to provide me with informational documents so we could give you as a guest a fast check in. I haven't received that information from your side so we weren't able to just handover your key. Next to that our front desk team was well prepared and sufficiently staffed. I'm sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy the food during dinner in the hotel. If you have some suggestions for us or specific details I'm happy to receive them so we can learn from these. I will review your invoice, there should be figures on it of course. Kind regards, Daria - Guest relations

Wim V Family - 12/10/2019 TripAdvisor review

Had a pleasant stay with my family at the Novotel in Mechelen. The service was good as usual and the breakfast is outstanding. Sometimes a bit crowded due to a tour group, but the staff was very accommodating to make sure we are comfortable. The location is in the middle of Mechelen, which is perfect. We will always come back.

Dear Wim, Thank you for the fine review of Novotel Mechelen Centrum, It is wonderful to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us at our convenient location. Thank you for complimenting breakfast and our team's courteous service. Your kind words are an incentive for us to continue maintaining our high standards. We look forward to welcoming you back.

Room temperature problematic

TripAdvisor rating 1.0/5

Tiffany V Business - 25/03/2019 TripAdvisor review

The best part of my stay here was the cheery gentleman in the breakfast room. Room temperature was horrible. The heat was on constantly and pumping hot air through my room, even when the wall unit was off. The front desk staff told me the heat had been broken in my room and the room above mine for 2 months!! 2 of my 3 nights spent sweating, the 3rd night freezing because instead of hot air, it was then cold air. No ability to change rooms, nothing more than a "sorry". Customer care kindly processed my complaint but I never heard anything back from them or the property. Go to the Mercure across the street instead.

Dear Tiffany V, Thank you for sharing your comments about your stay. I like to apologize again for the inconvenience regarding the temperature in your room. We have had some issues with the central heating and it was hard to control. If we would have had the chance we would of course have given you a different room for your comfort. With kind regards, Daria
