We only went to have a drink and some cheese at the bar and it was great. We arrived at 10 p.m. and they still gave us a nice cheese dish. The wines and beers were tasteful, as well as the plate with different cheeses. The staff was really friendly and the prices were fine. Great rustic setting with cosy... More

Very well located for a visit to Leuven. Nice spacy rooms with all comfort available. Very good beds, sufficient room in the bathroom. good welcome at the reception, fluent check out. Good breakfast but for € 25,- this can be excepted also. Nice outdoor seating for a drink.

The hotel is quiet, elegant, and very central. The breakfast buffet is incredibly rich and well-organized, and the rooms are comfortable and very stylish. The pub food could perhaps be a little more varied, but in general it is very good, with an excellent selection of Belgian beers and efficient, friendly service.

After a misunderstanding about the breakfast and it's pricing this is a correction to an earlier review of us. Martins Klooster is a really good choice for various reasons. Well situated right in the historical centre of Leuven one can easily walk within minutes to find all the highlights of the town, the abundance of restaurants etc. We stayed in... More

...I have come home feeling very much one of the poor relations. I don't think anyone can argue with the situation or the beauty of this historic building, which is why I've given it 4 stars instead of my instinct which would be 3. Our room was comparable to the servants' quarters - small, angular and desperately hot and stuffy.... More

Lovely modern hotel at the heart of leuven. We stayed at the old end of the hotel. Beaufiful old features with modern touch. Great big bathroom and shower. The bar was cosy and great selection of drinks available. Lobby was spacious and the staff was very friendly. Great walking distance from the centre, bars and restaurants and some lovely shops....

We normally stay at the Park Radisson to visit the Rock Werchter music festival but this year it was booked up as early as January 1st so I booked the only remaining rooms in town which were 'Exceptional' rooms at the Martin's Klooster which is reputed to be Leuven's best hotel. When we arrived the welcome was professional, polite and... More

I booked this based upon recommendations in TripAdvisor. As with so many reviews everything appeared to be wonderful. Unfortunately not so. Surely people can be a bit more critical. After all a selection of excellent means it cannot get better. It is a nice hotel in a great location with good onsite car parking. The Cosy room in the new... More

This hotel is highly acclaimed, and rightly so. A wonderful hotel in a perfect location, but this obviously comes at a price. I stayed three nights and thoroughly enjoyed everything. I had a nice room with a huge bathroom ( including my own jacuzzi bath tub - I could use it and watch the stars through the open window at... More
