Have you ever slept in a church? While many of us may well have dozed off during a particularly lengthy service, you probably haven't snuggled down under a cozy comforter at church, until now.

Located in Mechelen, Belgium, Martin’s Patershof is less than 30 minutes by train from Brussels and Antwerp, so it's perfect for an unforgettable stopover on a tour of Belgium.

Not only is the room you stay in surrounded by stained-glass windows, but the price is pretty heavenly too, it's $97 a night for a monastery room or $150 per night for a room with stained glass!


This former church has been converted into a 4-star hotel, Martin's Hotels, which combines classical architecture with a modern decor.

When you wake up, you can have your breakfast in the centre of the church, as if you were waiting for the choir to start singing.

You might be surprised to find there is also a bar inside, where you can sample the wide variety of Belgian beers on offer.

If this has caught your attention, on the Trivago booking page you can see the best rates, the cheapest we could find was with Priceline at $97 a night. Though, this increases if you want a room with stained-glass.
