Van der Valk hotel Mechelen
Mechelen is located in the heart of Flanders, halfway between Brussels and Antwerp. If you come by train, car or plane: Mechelen is easily accessible for everyone. Be seduced by so much urban charm and conviviality. Mechelen is surprising and authentic!
Van der Valk Hotel Mechelen is located in the old swimming pool, den Ouwen Dok, of the city. So it is a monumental building bursting with historical details. Several generations of people from Mechelen still look around very nostalgically when they walk into the building. Both young and old used to learn to swim here.
In 1924 the resu-like building opened its doors. For almost 80 years Mechelaars from all corners of the city came here every day. Unfortunately, the swimming pool was closed in 2001. Fortunately, the Wohrmann family gave the old swimming pool a new, beautiful destination.
Because it is a monumental building, many original elements have been preserved. For example, the large swimming pool has been preserved and transformed by a beautiful pond. The hotel also has different types of rooms, which in turn differ from each other by the shape and character of the building.
