The best thing about this hotel is the location which is superb, and off course a very friendly and helpful staff. Othervice it is an average hotel with small rooms and not to modern bathrooms, but the breakfast is really good. All in all it is value for money and I myself has already booked a new stay at the...

Stayed here for 1 night and was very pleased with this hotel. The location is excellent, right in the center of Leuven. The hotel has it's own parking space, very handy. Very clean, comfortable rooms with digital tv. Excellent breakfast in the morning.

New Hamspire is an average hotel.... no airco, no frills, average quality. Very old fashioned rooms and bathrooms. Slow wifi-connection. Working at the university I need a better room and hotel to prepare for lectures...

If you are looking for a hotel for just sleeping this hotel will fit the purpose. It has a good location, wifi connection, cable TV, average breakfast, good coffee and nice staff. However, it does not have a GYM, Resturant, the room is not confortable and it is old.

From the almost completely worn out doormat to the empty and characterless reception on my arrival I feared the worst. When someone did arrive he seemed distant, almost as though I'd disturbed him. At this point I wondered if I was the only guest in the place. I'd picked the hotel because it was close to the venue I was... More

Considering the price of the rooms it is not the best choice in Leuven. The Hotel is few steps from the center of the city but the rooms are very small and some of them are very noisy. The breakfast is good but not more than the average. I was there several times and the last time they gave me... More

Compared to other hotels in the area, this one is cheap, although it doesnt look like from the outside. The rooms are very small, the walls thin, so you can basically hear everything happening outside the room. Lifts look very used (scratched paint etc.), and main staircase reminds me very narrow fire exit. On the other hand, its clean, very... More

I travel there for a conference. The location is excellent, very close to the center of the city. The personel was friendly and helpful for all matters. Breakfast was ok, but very standard, but I did not expect more. Negatove points: The rooms are very small. Most important: The price is perhaps too large for what it offers.

The hotel itself is normal good standard, but fresh baked bread for breakfast and always very helpful and nice staff in the reception makes it standing out of the mass. I will go back next time I'm in Leuven.

Therefore it was difficult to book a hotel, they were almost fully booked,the only available was New Damshire. When I saw the pictures of hotel in its official website I didn't like it at all. I was... More
