The front desk is very helpful because they serve breakfast every morning. Making a trip much more affordable. And most importantly they are available on sundays to check you out in the morning. That’s because in Leuven many businesses are closed on sundays so it is difficult to travel without pre-arrangements. The hotel is very convenient and safe.

Small room, but so clean! No "hotel chemical" smell, patio door and fan kept it cool and fresh. Excellent housekeeping service daily. Breakfast was plentiful. Highly recommend.

4/10 Fair

Centraal gelegen - recent gerenoveerd
Het hotel is heel centraal gelegen en is recent gerenoveerd. Qua locatie zeker top voor wie Leuven wil bezoeken. Het personeel was heel vriendelijk en professioneel. Ontbijt was ok voor zijn prijs, maar niet exceptioneel. Ik had de familiekamer die heel ruim en gezellig was, maar voor de prijs die ik betaalde had ik een iets betere afwerking verwacht. Ze was echter niet netjes. Verschillende vlekken op de vloer. Er hing ook een geur die me heeft belet te slapen. De parking ligt net over het hotel, maar is niet onderhouden (een vuil kot). Dus het zal jammergenoeg voor mij bij 1x blijven.

Fijn hotel met eigen parkeergelegenheid, op loopafstand van het centrum, heerlijke douche en kamer is groot genoeg. Helaas geen airco.
