A good hotel worth the little extra with lovely (full) breakfast, comfortable rooms with great bathrooms and a bar to have both pre and post evening drinks - great selection of beers to taste (when in Rome......)!

Stayed here a few years ago when the plans for the extension were on display and what a beautiful job they made of the build. The old and the new blend seamlessly and the new rooms are gorgeous, spacious and comfortable, although the mattress was a little on the soft side for me:-) The breakfast was delicious and the bar...

We stayed here over the weekend of the Werchter Classic festival. I admit it, my backpackers budget did not like it very much, but as soon as I sat down on the bed, all my worries disappeared. I have very seldom in my life slept on a bed that made me feel weightless. I even asked the reception to give... More

In the center of Leuven about 3 minutes from the main central plaza with primary attractions of the town. Parking was not so easy. Rooms are very spacious by European standards, very clean. Beds are comfortable. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Not cheap, but worth it. One of the nicest hotels we stayed in during two weeks in France... More

Nothing is wrong at all. Smiling friendly faces, especially the very friendly and professional young lady at reception. My room is smallish. The size of the rooms is my #1 objection. Other than size, room is nice, bed very comfortable. I do realize this is a former monastery from the 1400s...

Dear, Thank you for your feed back. Indeed a part of the hotel is situated in an ancient monastery and we've tried to keep the original structure of the ancient buildings. We have a extension to the hotel built in 2012. Our clients can if they like to make the choice if they prefer a certain type of room. Our... More

Stayed for one night on our way back home from a cycle tour. The Hotel was lovely and the reception staff were excellent. We didn't eat at the Hotel so I'm unable to make any comment. This hotel was booked last minute and was an excellent choice.

Wonderful relaxing weekend (sun and rain). Big comfortable room with windows opening to old church.Close enough to the old town and all sights, but not 'in' it to be disturbed by the evening music. Enjoyed the excellent breakfasts and a quick visit to the bar (the old town is close by with numerous options ...). We close Leuven as I... More

We stayed here 2 nights while my husband did business and I tagged along. He has stayed there frequently. We were in a room in the "new" wing. The room was nicely outfitted. The bathroom was quite large, with a bubble bath (I didn't try it), a shower with overhead and hand-held, and a single-basin sink. Everything worked properly. My... More

Martin's Klooster is a very nice hotel in the old town of Leuven. It is in one of the best preserved medieval parts of town, right next to an old Gothic church and a very well preserved ancient street. We have stayed several times and always enjoy the rooms and location. The bar is also very cosy although the service... More
