Stayed a couple of nights here in October, visiting our son who lives in Leuven now. We stayed one night in a hotel, because the Begijnhof was busy. We would have been more than happy if we had stayed at the Begijnhof for all of the nights in Leuven. Next time we visit, we know what to do. Michel has... More

We had a very pleasant stay at Guesthouse Begijnhof. The location is truly outstanding: right opposite the Begijnhof, a marvelous historical quarter. The rooms are very quiet and have all necessary comfort. The breakfast is very nice as well, offering a selection of exquisite cheeses (from the best cheese shop in Leuven), delicatessen, home-made jam, honey, yogurt, muesli, etc. The... More

Amazing, amazing, amazing! Michel is a very generous and gracious host who goes the extra mile. He even put a brochure in German in my room for a current museum exhibition! It's the little things like that that count. It seems he has an eye for detail! Breakfast was nice and relaxing, with fresh bread, wonderful cheeses and meats, homemade... More

Booked a room for my parents who were visiting for the weekend. The room was great and so was the breakfast. The location is perfect, right in center of Leuven but just away from the noisy parts, right across from the historic Begijnhof. The best part of this B&B though is Michele. He was extremely kind and helpful from the... More

This is an excellent, quiet B&B right across from the Begijnhof, and close to a stop of the new Zonnetrein, a small open-air tour vehicle that travels through Leuven on solar powered batteries. I booked a room here for some family members who were visiting from Europe on Sept 30th 2014. Michel, the host, was accommodating in every way. He... More

We visited Leuven for Rock Werchter festival as some of us did not wish to camp. The staff were very friendly, it is family-run. Very clean, well kept, and over 400 years old! Would definitely recommend to anyone to stay in the area. Only about a 15 minute walk from the train station in the centre, and its a nice... More

Two years ago, I visited Leuven for the first time. I became fascinated with the Begijnhof. When I decided to return to Leuven again, the location of this guesthouse was the deciding factor. It was right across form the entrance to the Begijnhof. It was a very nice surprise, when my daughter and I arrived, to meet the innkeeper, Michel.... More

Beautiful B&B oozing with character. Very tasteful decor, the blend of old and new works perfectly.The linen is of the highest quality and the breakfast excellent. Michel, the owner, is attentive and charming. This is a special place you will always remember. A short walk takes you to the centre of town. Cannot recommend highly enough.

I loved this b&b! It was my last night after a long journey through three countries. I was met at the door by Michel, the owner, who has lovingly restored this 400 year old building. My daughter was with me and he asked us to sit and enjoy a refreshment while he gave us wonderful information about events in Leuven!... More

Very hospitable and helpful owner who runs a small B&B in the prettiest part of town. Loved everything about our stay - simple, tastefully decorated seventeenth century house and rooms, delicious breakfast (including home made jams and eggs from his chickens). Perfect!
