If arriving by train it's quite a walk to the hotel, probably just over a mile, but the centre of Leuven is quite pleasant and I didn't have any problems. The stairs up to the room are quite narrow and my room itself was quite small, but it was clean, comfortable and had toiletries and a hair dryer included. Bed... More

Good hotel at walking distance for the centre of the lovely Leuven city. Rooms are good (get a top story one!) breakfast is excellent and service is great. Nothing to complain AT ALL. NB: if you're by car, make a reservations for the hotel-parking asap. Its not big and there are a lot of people wnating one.

Anyone who thinks this is an OK hotel must have very low expectations for a 3 star hotel. Stifling narrow corridors, humid non airconditioned breakfast space under the stairs, indifferent front staff, beds more like camp beds, ragged edged old towels, old tired bathrooms, noisy air conditioning, a bottle of branded tap water, lowest quality toiletries, mouldy fruit and a...

I spend one night in Hotel New Damshire to enjoy Leuven for two days. I choose this hotel because of it's location. It's about 10 minutes walking to the historical center of Leuven (oude markt and groot begrijnhof). The employees are very friendly and helpful. Kudos for them. The hotel itself is basic with small rooms with a bit cheap... More

The staff at the hotel were freindly, knowledgeable of the local area. The breakfast was filling and had a varied choice of food. The hotel was within walking distance of all the local sites. the bar was well priced and had a good choice of local beers and coffees. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. I would...

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
