WHY PORTA SUPERIA?
MORE THAN A B&B!
Porta Superia is a derivative of the Latin name of the Brussels Gate in Mechelen, the Porta Superio, or the oldest and most important gateway to the city, which is located close to Porta Superia B&B.
And since we are also a bit of a gateway to the city, the name was quickly chosen.
It was a friend who put us on the track to make this name sound better. Porta Superia was born
We have been receiving our guests for more than 5 years and try to pamper them as much as possible.
Often praised for the perfect service, elegantly furnished rooms and lively atmosphere, we invite you to enjoy all the comfort, luxury and technological gadgets.
“Why don't you make it SUPERIA? she said and everything fell into place ”
What started as a dream in our heads grew into something we could never believe in our wildest dreams….
Porta Superia B&B Mechelen was born.
The plan was started to be able to receive guests luxuriously in our home at the time and to pamper them in 2 luxurious guest rooms.
Plans were drawn and redrawn, 5 years of renovation with heart and soul, until ……
We had known for quite some time that quality and experience would be central to us and at the end of 2015 we finally opened with great pleasure and our beloved Porta Superia was put on the map….
Live your life to the maximum, take care of each other and discover the world.
Traveling not only takes us to the most beautiful places, but it also inspires us how to receive our guests.
This of course did not go unnoticed by our guests and soon we grew too big…. and the search for larger premises began.
A new beginning
After a long search, we finally took the plunge and moved from our old to our new location in mid-2020.
And what kind of one ...
A stately and elegant 20th century mansion with garden.
Here we offer 5 luxurious rooms and we have the possibility to receive large groups, families and teams.
with or without catering
And just to enjoy it even more by pampering our many guests….
We are already looking forward to it 😀
