Stayed at Penta because my manager was over from the US and he had already booked this hotel. I had a room at the Tiensestraat. From 2am onwards, the noise on the street from students partying, was just insane. It was as if all windows were open, but they weren't (believe me, I checked then all). At about 6am the... More

I was visiting my daughter, who is a student in leuven. The hotel was lovely. The staff really polite and helpful. I loved the decor in the hotel. The location was central. We stayed at the weekend which was a little busy and you could hear people in the street below. The beds very comfortable. I would book this hotel... More

In februar we stayed for two nights in this fine hotel. Comfortable suite, helpful and friendly staff and perfect location of this hotel. The only small remark can be made for the breakfast room, its quite small but quality of food is very good.

The room was very comfortable and nicely decorated. The Hotel bar had a great atmosphere. The only downside of it, was that for me, it didn't seem very straightforward to reach the Hotel by car. On the other hand, it is perfectly located if one wants to leave the hotel and walk in the city center.

The beds are lovely. At Sunday you have a late check-out till 3pm. But the room was simple and too expensive for what they offer. No breakfast included, the reception is a bar and reception at the same time and soccer games playing on the televisions all the time (a bit camp) Paying 150 euro a night for a 3... More

A lovely charming hotel, with a great location in the heart of Leuven. Rooms modern & clean & a team of staff always willing to help. Secure underground parking meant all luggage could be left in the car😀😀

A good hotel in het middle of the center, in my opinion the best hotel in Leuven considering it's prime location. The rooms have been redesigned and are very nice. The lobby and bar have also been redesigned, very warm, but a bit to much for my taste, but still, a welcome change.

We stayed just for one night. The hotel is ideally centrally located close to the centre of Leuven. The rooms are modern with good facilities. The staff is friendly. A day before arrival you receive a detailed description how to reach the hotel oarking facilities. Only the breakfast is a bit expensive (€18 p.p), you can easily find a alternative... More

The Pentahotel is a great place to stay in Leuven. Close to the city center, close to the bus stop, not too far from the train station. The staff was beyond helpful and respected my do not disturb sign all week (I keep my hotel rooms very tidy and do not utilize the maid service when I am staying somewhere... More
