Clean, staff very efficient and within the ibis standards. Good location near the train station but with good soundproofing. Acceptable breakfast. Recommended for short business stays. Good value - price relation

It's a comfortable hotel near to station so it's really easy to go everywhere. It's also quiet. I really recommend this hotel for someone who comes to Leuven for the first time. It's near the Brussel airport by the way, less than 30 minutes by train (cost €8,9 per trip). They clean our bed everyday; change our towel as well,... More

We only stayed one night on our way to Germany, so we're not aware of its proximity to any attractions, shops and so on but our room was quiet, comfortable and good value. The only real disadvantage was the lack of on site parking but we managed to park on the street and there is pay parking nearby.

The hotel has small rooms. The 3beds room is not enough for 3 people, the breakfast doesn't worth 7€. The location is good (near the train station) but far from the city center. Leuven is a vibrant city, don't stay in this hotel, look for a place in the center

Situated near the railway station - so is perfect for those who travel by train. Very close to the main street with tons of shops and cafes.Car parking is near and there are discounts on weekdays. But staff in the hotel isn't capable of explaining how to enter the parking (we couldn't figure it out for quite some time). Room... More

Located a mere 2 minutes walk from the nearest train station. Great budget hotel, clean and quiet. Had a great stay, lots of families with kids. Had a market and pharmacy nearby. Comfy room with a huge window that provided a great view. So close to everything needed.

Was sent here due to a cancelled Air Brussels flight and for a night the hotel was just fine. New hotel, clean, minimal rooms, helpful staff and good location next to Leuven train station. Ibis Budget hotels are exactly that – low-budget hotels – and as such this is a nice, efficient hotel.

Never forget that it is only a budget hotel. No hair dryer and super small. I was staying with two friends. A bit and a girl and it was a little bit awkward that the shower had just milky glass in the middle and no space to change. So we almost saw each other every time Naked while showering. Nevertheless... More

We stayed here for one night - a Thursday. Arrival was just after 3pm. It is located next door to the railway station in Leuven - a 2 minute walk. The centre of Leuvan is less than a 10 minute walk away We were not sure whether Leuvan was in the French or Dutch speaking part of Leuven. We checked... More

It is a budget hotel but I never had a worse bed. Sleeping in a hut in Thailand on the plain ground was more comfortable. I don't know how that is manageable. The rest was ok: it is clean, close to the train station but still kind of quiet.
