Hotel New Damshire, Leuven
Good, but need to improve
I arrived at the hotel after 3:00pm, the room is not ready and waited for half hour. However, the staff was friendly and asked if I needed a couple of coffee or tea. The facility in the room is old, the room service was just OK. Hotel location is good.

Hotel New Damshire, Leuven
Very disappointing...
I stayed here because it was close to my sons college. The location was great but the condition of the room was a real disappointment. It was really tine for 2 twin beds, the window looked out at the wall. There is not a single outlet available in the room to charge your devices. Every person has at least one device to charge. The room and corridors are very dark and stuffy. the wifi was just ok. The lobby was ok and breakfast was good. It is not really worth the price and you can easily find better hotels for the the same or lower price a few blocks down. I returned back a few days later and stayed at another hotel close by, which was much nicer and modern and for a lower price. I would not recommend staying at this hotel.

Barely 3 stars
I stayed here because it was very close to my sons university. The hotel is barely 3 stars, outdated and very cramped. Front desk was courteous. Wifi was ok. The best thing was its location to the university and good breakfast. I will not be staying here again .

Cleaner unlocked the door without notice
When my boyfriend and I were taking a rest in the room, a cleaner unlocked the door with her key without knocking the door, and opened it. She just entered room and claimed that she left something in the room. She left my room in a minute and I didn’t bother to report it to the reception. After a while, another cleaner opened the door with her key again without knocking and insisted that she was looking for something she left in the room. In the end she left without apology. This is unbelievably disturbing. What’s going on in this hotel?
