Perfect stay in central Leuven
Incredibly convenient to the center of Leuven, but not too loud. Comfortable room, friendly staff, good breakfast.

Not again
The room was great. Not large, but efficient, and very stylish. BUT, I will not return to Penta hotel. We stayed on a Wednesday night, and because the hotel is smack downtown, nightlife goes on until after 5:00AM, Even with the window closed, there was no escaping the noise. Closing the window hardly reduced the noise, and had the added effect that it got too warm in bed (although we didn't heat the room while it was 5-7 degrees outside, it was too warm to keep the window closed). We did not get to sleep until after 5:00AM. At 8:30AM housekeeping woke us up because the wanted to make the room. This was extra painful, because we arrived the previous day at 11:00AM and were made to wait until 3:00pm for check in.

Work and play
Went for conference. Excellent breakfast choices but 18 euro breakfast all you can eat type. Hotel has a bar. Lobby is a bit dark and funky but room was clean with coffee / tea pot that was a plus
