    Short break for a family event

    Lovely hotel, friendly helpful staff, good location, short walk to the centre of Leuven. Drawbacks, the mattresses and pillows were not good so none of us slept very well. There was no information provided about breakfast so we had no idea if it was included or not. Each morning there was breakfast provided but no staff to check your room number or advise. We had breakfast at the hotel and on checkout we were asked if we had breakfast we said yes and we were charged €21 per person per day which was too expensive for the quality of the food provided.

    Enjoyable stay

    Only stayed 1 night but would definitely stay again. Decent location, approx 10-15 minute walk to the centre. Paid for breakfast when booking and was well worth it as a family.

    Okay... quite basic

    The bed and the pillows were quite low quality and the bathroom door has a punch mark. The breakfast and some of the staff were excellent. Very slow check out. The guy had no idea what he was doing and it was slow.

    Please upgrade the coffee!

    The front desk staff were very nice on check in and check out. We stayed in a family room, which was very cramped with 2 kids beds. If we'd been there longer than one night it would have been very uncomfortable. The bed and pillows were very hard and there is only awful instant coffee - one sachet of normal and one of decaff in the room. This really lets Novotel down.

    Stay in the hotel was brill but let down with well over priced breakfast at €20.00 per person and paper cups for making hot beverages in Car parking under ground the hotel was also €20.00 for 24hours wot a rip off

    Good hotel but a bit out of town

    Hotel great but it’s a good 20 min walk to the cathedral and main restaurant/bar area. Food is pub grub style, decent but quite expensive for what it is.
