    Excellent place and excellent host. She is very accommodating! Tried two different rooms and one with an incredibly comfy bed with blackout mechanical shutters. The Wellness room is one to try as well! We only tried that room out for one night and...

    Hospitality. We have not been welcomed in Europe like this until now. Ms.Veerle was very kind and understanding. My kids loved the place and its just because of the way they were treated.

Veerle welcomes you to her bed and Breakfast with two bedrooms each with private bathroom and toilet. The name Alegría is not just chosen, Alegría is Spanish and means “joy”. That is what Veerle stands for and that also radiates them in this B&B. The street where the B&B is located, is named after a famous plant and herbalist who lived in Mechelen. Flowers are certainly found in and around the B&B. If you can inform us about the estimated arrival time, we are happy to welcome you personally in the B&B.
B&B Alegría, located just outside the centre (5-15 min walking distance), is the perfect location for a visit to Mechelen. For several years Mechelen has been clearly put on the map for many activities such as Shopping, culture, history, art, events,… This art city offers experiences for everyone. The fact that the B&B is located near the canal (point 93), the location is also the ideal for cyclists who would like to make a stopover in Mechelen. Brussels Airport (Zaventem) is only 11 minutes via direct train from in the airport to Mechelen. After 20 minutes walk (just follow the canal until the next bridge), you arrive in the B&B.
