    We were not told of renovations going on at the hotel, and we were put in the room right next door to where they where working starting at 8:00 AM. Other than that the Hotel was nice and in a nice area.

    Loved it.

    My second time there. Loved it. Close enough yet far enough from the city centre. Nice surrounds. Great university park area for jogging. Nice little pub with a terrace just up the road. Good breakfasts and very friendly staff.

    Edge of town. Quite and peaceful

    First time staying here. Convenient for work and on the edge of the town. Easy to get to and from. Location is quite and peaceful and I’m sure beautiful to relax at in summer. Parking is limited. Hotel is a little dated but clean and tidy.

    Style and Comfort

    Extremely comfortable hotel with modern details here and there. Amazing back yard, patio and dining area. Location is about a mile from the bus and train station. I just walked and enjoyed seeing all unique things to the area. Like the hundreds of bicycles university students use for transportation. Also there’s a beautiful, preserved 19 century village just right behind the hotel. Enjoyed exploring that one morning.

    Pleasant hotel in a peaceful area

    The room was very spacious, comfortable and well equipt. Good breakfast. Ideal location in a very peaceful area but within walking distance of the city centre and shops.

  • 6.0.Good

    The hotel could not find our booking. Luckily they had a room available. There was no air conditioning which was extremely disappointing given the high price and that they were rated 4 star. They setting was lovely and it was well located to visit KU Leuven and the center of town. Cold breakfast was mediocre.
