My party of four travelled to Belgium from Aberdeen and stayed in two rooms at the Boardhouse in Leuven as our base for the 2014 Rock Werchter festival. The hotel location is in a pleasant suburb called Heverlee, which has numerous shops, cafes and pubs close by and is a five minute walk from its own railway platform, just one... More

We stayed here for 4 nights while in Leuven for the RockWerchter festival. The staff were very friendly and accommodating (5/5). Rooms are clean and comfortable. We had basic room which still had a mini bar, TV etc. We didn't have breakfast or any meals at the hotel. Fridge and safe were both 'broken' but quickly sorted out by the... More

Let me start this review rather atypically.. - I booked a night in - what i thought was Boardhouse - last week. - I booked the place since i stayed there one night end 2013 and i was very enthusiast about it, but didn't "tripadvise" @ that time…. BUT : Be careful : - This hotel seems to have a... More

Hotel was recommended from a colleague as an alternative to the usual airport-business hotels. Leuven itself is a much nicer city compared to Brussels, it has a wonderful old city centre, absolutely beautiful. Having the option in the evening to do more than taking a train down town we also accepted the 20-30 rush hour drive to the airport area.... More

Be careful when booking this hotel, I had to depart 1 day in advance and I've been charged as originally booked. I thas happen to me in other hotels to change the plan after check-in and I've never had issue or have been charged for the other nights. They shoud better ask money in advance then will be clear when... More

Excellent hotel, clean and nice rooms, new renovated, great breakfast, not in centrum but easy to get there. Free wireless internet but connection sometimes not that good. Free bicycles are the tip of the cake.

We stayed several nights the Boardhouse apartments and found it a very reasonable place to stay. The apartments are well fitted out and on a nice square in Heverlee, a suburb of Leuven, Belgium. It is owned and run by the same people as the Boardhouse Hotel a few blocks away. One has to pick up the key there and... More

Stayed for only one night in the Boardhousing aparthotel, which is part of Hotel Boardhouse. The room was great, minibar and breakfast were affordable. We even had a small kitchenette in the room.Only one downside, you have to pick up and drop off the key at the Boardhouse hotel, a couple of streets further on.

We had a lovely week at The Board House. There is a bus stop right outside with regular buses to Leuven (buses are really cheap, you can buy a ticket on the bus). There is a train station too with trains about every 30mins into Leuven. It isn't the train line to Brussels, so to get there, you need to... More

When considering going to the Boardhouse hotel, make sure to not stay in the room on the groundfloor adjoining the restaurant. You will not get any sleep because - of course - they have to clean up the restaurant at night after the dining guests have left and they start very early in the morning to set up for breakfast...
