Very nicely situated hotel, beautiful room. However we wanted to enjoy the room as much as possible so we went dining and returned early to watch a movie in the hotel room. Unfortunately this did not work and we informed the reception by phone. They told us that they would contact the supplier. I expected them to phone back and...

This hotel is in the middle of Leuven. Nice location! Nice rooms, nice atmosphere. Some small negative points: the queen bed was a connected one person bed, with 2 one person sheets... :(. The breakfast room was too small and too crowdy. The desk receptionist and the telephone guy did not speak dutch well (should be main language) so we...

Great atmosphere, very relaxed. Nice lobby / lounge - spent some time there (what I usually never do in hotels), very nice room, great breakfast - highly recommendable. And more central is not possible. Close to all restaurants, etc. Thanks for a really pleasant stay!

Excellent bed. We could park our car all day in the parking, which can be used until 14:00 on check-out day. Minor issues: -- Some noise at night from people in...

Dear guest, Thank you for your nice review about the hotel. Happy you enjoyed your time here! As we are located in the heart of Leuven, it can be busy sometimes as the Grote Markt & Oude markt, are located 2 min. from the hotel. I will check the problems with the windows with our maintenance manager. Hope to welcome...

Well located hotel in central Leuven. Comfortable rooms, nice bar area. Leuven is a big student centre, so ask for a room at the rear on an upper level if you want a good nights sleep, as it can get very noisy in this part of town. Quite a small restaurant, but there are lots nearby to choose from. Limited...

Great location, great cleanliness, friendly staff, terrific lobby area - I would highly recommend. THe only downside was that the "24-hour" lobby/bar couldn't prepare coffee for me at 5 am as the machine was being cleaned.
