Our stay at the Novotel was very pleasant. The rooms were big and very clean. The toilet was separated from the bathroom. The bathroom had a a modern rainshower. The beds were too soft, not recommended for people with a weak back. WIFI was for free and the signal was very strong. The breakfast was good but not excellent.

This was our 2nd stay at this hotel. Firstly, they charged my card in full for the room stay (3 weeks in advance). The hotel said they had made an error but it would not be worth refunding it as it would take 2-3 weeks and in any case would have stayed in the hotel by then (how sympathetic). On...

Very average for quite an expensive nightly mid week rate. Rude reception staff (no attention paid, no chat, answered phone while checking you in / out and ignore you until you press the buzzer to get in on an evening even though they clearly saw you standing there), bit of a trek out of town, very average breakfast. Covered in...

My wife and I stayed for one night as part of a touring group. We found the hotel very modern and stylish. Evening meal and breakfast was great with the barman Domeneca very attentive and helpful. A credit to the hotel. Room was also top notch! Would definitely recommend this hotel!

Spent the weekend in the Novotel. Good proximity to Leuven and well within walking distance to restaurants, bars, etc., in the city center. Hotel accomodations are good (i.e. clean, spacious room and good breakfast service). A decent hotel in my opinion but I would try to stay closer to the city center if I return to Leuven.

Spent just one short night in this hotel to conduct business in Leuven. Its conveniently located within walking distance to the city center.

We stayed in the Novotel Leuven Centrum for four nights in December. The hotel is located down the street from the train station and is maybe a ten minute walk between the station and the hotel.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This modern and trendy hotel is the perfect base from which to discover the historical centre of Leuven and the surrounding area.From this convenient location you can easily visit many old treasures, such as the famous 15th century Town Hall, built in a Gothic architectural style. Take advantage of the main train station and the highway in the vicinity to explore the wide and green surroundings of this art city. Back in the hotel, you can work up a sweat in the fitness room and afterwards enjoy a drink in our bar or have something to eat in our Foodsquare restaurant. The bustling nightlife is just a stone’s throw from the hotel , but if you prefer to relax, you can indulge in a relaxing steam bath or you can retreat in your spacious, comfortable and stylishly decorated ‘Next’ room. All the ‘Next’ rooms, according to the new novotel concept, are non smoking and are provided with free WIFI and coffee and tea facilities. Up to 2 children (15 years and under) stay free when sharing with parents.The Novotel Leuven is also the ideal place for your business trips.
