Nice location in the centre of Leuven. Even with an extra bed, there was enough space in our room. Nice personel that act nice and quick. Because of the small amount of dishes on the menu we went outside the hotel to eat.

Hotel has a very good location, friendly staff, nice rooms and very large beds. Parking right underneath the hotel is not cheap (18euros a night) but it can be very convenient. The hotel also gives other tips for free or cheaper parking. Hotel lobby looks very nice during the day. However, in the evening/night, purple lights and a discoball turning... More

The refurbished Pentahotel is both stylish & cosy. It was a real pleasure to enjoy the hospitality in the centre of Louvain. Walking distance of the lively city centre, we truly had a great time. We certainly will be there again, one day ...

Good location, helpful staff and very cool decoration, with a huge bed. The room could be a bit bigger, but is definitely good enough. Perhaps the best hotel I've ever been, it has very lovely details.

Stayed here a couple of years ago when it was a Holiday Inn. It is situated in the middle of the town centre in a pedestrianised area that needs a code to access the street if you're travelling by car. As we were on a motorcycle this wasn't an issue as we could just ride between the bollards, parking is... More

We absolutely enjoyed ours stay this summer in the Pentahotel in Leuven. We stayed 3 times in the hotel this summer, and saw the changes during the renovations : the result is beautiful. The new rooms have fantastic beds, the 'retro'-style is very nice and give a more homefeeling. We adore the desk chair! The bathroom with shower is more... More
