This is a great budget hotel. Very close to the train station, a supermarket, a pharmacy and the city center. The rooms are small, with only basic amenities. But they are quiet, and sparkling clean with super comfortable beds. Free, excellent wifi a plus. The breakfast is not much, cereal, cold cuts, cheese, bread, and I think expensive (6 or... More

Booked this online as a stopover in Leuven on our way down to Burgundy from the Rotterdam ferry. The room is clean and plenty big enough for two of us - even had a third bed/ bunk above our bed. Has a separate toilet, with a shower cubicle and wash basin in the room. Has a work-surface and stools in... More

Perfect location because it's next to the train station which is perfect if you are interested in making tourism and just 10 minutes walking to the city centre. The hotel is really quiet, very clean and looks new. The bed is really comfortable. The room is simple but everything you need is there. I found a very good point the... More

This is a good basic hotel. It was clean. Nice Dove hand wash and an unknown shower gel. I was travelling on my own and had a room with two single beds. The room was of a reasonable size. The beds were hard, which is good. However, if you like a soft bed...not that great. I was fine with that.... More

It's a really basic hotel, but it is ok if you just want a decent room. The location is very central, just behind the Station, the 'Grote Markt'/'Oude Markt' is just 10 minutes walk! Cheap and a reasonable price. Clean bathroom as well.

This is a economical option for a solo traveler to stay right near the train station. There was noise from the trains during the night. The buffet breakfast was average. The room was a bit small. Considering the price it is an option to give second thought.

I would like to start by thanking you for choosing our hotel as accomodation choice and for taking the time to write a review. I sincerely regret you had some inconvenience with the noise of the trains. Normally all the windows are soundproofing but when the window is not properly closed, you can hear indeed some noise from outside. We... More

I read some of the previous reviews and I have to agree: it is an ok budget hotel, close to the train/bus station, with basic facilities. Some of the rooms might be noisier - those which are closer to the train station but otherwise it is a fine place to stay for a couple of nights.

Stayed here for a couple nights. Our room was bigger than what I would normally expect for a budget hotel. It is wonderfully located by the train station that you could easily hop in hop out to visit other cities. At the end of a whole day's sight seeing, the powerful warm shower gets very comforting and prepares me for... More
