“My favorite place to stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

I regularly travel to Leuven for Business and my first choice is always Yenn B&B. Nadine and Yoris are wonderful hosts and the place itself is superb. It is only a short walk from the train station and it is also an easy walk to the main town square. The beds and bathrooms are always great and the breakfast is second to none. Each time I stay I gorge myself on the high quality breakfast items that Nadine provides, I especially enjoy the rice pudding.

A great place to stay for anyone from business travelers, visiting academics, couples tourists or even families.

Thank you for this !
I'll try to offer you the rice pudding with all your future bookings here at YENN.
For other visitors, talk to us about your favourites for breakfast and we'll do our best to please.
I know of returning visitors when they prefer sweet to savoury or bacon & scrambled eggs to the croissants or home made banana or chocolat cake.
We also try to offer as much as possible organic or local produce at breakfast, our way to limit our ecological footprint. Also our cleaning products are eco-certified ! For people who care, you know.
Looking forward to hearing more from you in the future.
Kind regards,

Nadine Gregoor

I spent last night at this superb B&B. Hosts Nadine and Joris were gracious and attentive. The room was quiet, large, comfortable and had an enormous brand new shower in it. Breakfast was a great selection of cheese, cereals, cold meats, fresh juice, yoghurt etc. This is my third stay and the experience was as good as ever. perfect for business (this trip) and also for our large family (previous trips). The two minute walk from Leuven station makes it very convenient for public transport with good parking overnight available as well.

Room Tip: rooms are all different so match your need to the offerings

Yenn is an excellent b&b ideally situated for the city centre. What makes Yenn special however are the hosts Nadine and Yoris who are passionate and knowledgable about their home and Leuven, nothing being too much trouble. Beautiful room, well equipped and a lovely shower room. Really nice breakfast with locally produced produce. Loved the different cheeses!!! Parking was also easy due to the relationship that they have with a local bank.

Unfortunately we stayed on the hottest night, certainly of the year so far and probably this century!!! But still enjoyed Yenn and Leuven. Great restaurants and bars all set in a beautiful city with many wonderful buildings and sights. Leuven is well worth a visit and we can heartily recommend Yenn b&b.

Room Tip: Make sure you visit the Flemish Beguinages which are special.

Owners Nadine and Yoris make this place different from many places i've stayed in. Living in the premises themselves, the shelves are lined with all kinds of books in different languages, the kitchen is an organized clutter that's properly lived in and a delight to see, and the rooms are so comfortable i'm left asking for nothing. Love the bathroom. Proper rain shower with high pressure and heating. Hairdryer. Wifi. Desk to work (if need be). Sofa. Awesome stay! <3

I would suggest Yenn if visiting Leuven. Convenient location and lovely rooms, but the main reason why I choose always Yenn is their hospitality. You can meet a comfortabler stay than hotel.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
In our urge to make this world a better place and our quest to limit our carbon footprint we offer mainly bio-organic products at breakfast, locally produced and/or fair trade, and in our cleaning and general maintenance we prefer eco-friendly products as well. Check us out and book with us, as we want to inspire you and share our best practices and we also want to learn from you in return. Another focus here at YENN is local beers - Leuven as the home town of beer & brewing suits us perfectly. Descending from a beer brewing family we want to tell you all about it - ask more about our beer packages. YENN is a period townhouse rebuilt after the Great Fire of Leuven (1914). The top two floors are converted into luxury guest rooms, all equipped with en-suite bathrooms, flatscreen-TV, coffee and tea making facilities. 2 Duplex-style rooms with separate bedrooms, of which 1 duplex-style room (large suite) with fully equipped kitchen, and 1 luxury room with balcony. Excellent location: walking distance of the station and the city centre (5') with a bus stop a few yards away. Our triple glazing keeps out the noise and together with a speed limit of 50 km/p/h on the street this is a surprisingly calm & peaceful location. ... more   less
