Lovely place to sit and people watch in Leuven with a fab cocktail all served at a reasonable price too. Good selection of beers too. Nice service and close to the centre of the city. We sat outside on a lovely summer evening.

Take the hotel for a bed, not for the room. Ideally located in the inner city of Leuven. The breakfast is included so with that in mind the room is well balanced in price. Breakfast is made per table, do not expect a fruit-salade, expect fresh bread, cheese, ham, salami, some sweet, egg, orange jus, coffee, tea. And just ask... More

the furniture is a bit antiquated but it is extremely well kept, the breakfast is also very filling. the only downside is that it was kind of noisy, the students had finished their exams and were celebrating, my advise would be to take ear plugs with you.

The menu of the bar is quite exhaustive with a big well classified list of cocktails. The description of every drink makes it easy to choose. Although, the outdoor seating these days has been full, the service is very quick with cordial staff. Overall a great arrangement in the Center of Leuven.

The hotel is great. Beds are comfortable, breakfast is filling, and it's in the centre of the city. However, the hotel is located right next to a student bar, where the students of Leuven party into the early hours of the morning. I went to bed at 11, when the noise started, and couldn't sleep until 3. This was frustrating... More

We stayed at Hotel professor based on TripAdvisor reviews and were so glad we did! The hotel is literally on the large town square. As other reviewers mentioned, it can be noisy at night. However, the "noise" is the sound of people having fun in the square just below your window - we expected the sounds and didn't have any... More

We came here specifically for the cocktails, having walked past it on our first night and seen the place full of people happily drinking fantastic looking creations. We didn't realise that it was a hotel until we actually came inside. The cocktail list is extensive, with seemingly hundreds available. The menu is broken down by type, so it is easy... More

We didn't stay in the hotel, but went to the cocktail bar. It is great! The Amaretto milkshake is delicious and quite big. Other cocktails as well. Next to their names, they tell you what's in it. You can also ask for a specific cocktail according to your taste. So you can 'assemble' it yourself. This isn't the place where... More

The Hotel is located in the middle of Leuven and this makes it ideal for a stay in Leuven. everything is located a short stroll away. The size of room was ok, the bath was small with a closed shower. The price was attractive but it was really noisy (Friday night :(. The area is very lively and I assume... More

Visited the city of Leuven in September during a motorcycle trip through Belgium and stayed at the Professor. The rooms are basic but very comfortable and clean. Its situated right in the heart of the city and has an excellent cocktail bar/pub downstairs. Breakfast was in the deal with a generous helping of freshly baked breads, cheeses, cold meats etc....
