“Excellent value and high quality service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

I was very pleased with my stay at the Ibis Leuven Centrum. The bed was fantastically comfortable, the service of very high quality, and the price quite affordable. The location is extremely convenient – the hotel being situated close to restaurants and within pleasant walking distance of KU Leuven. The breakfast provided by the hotel was notably good.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

We stayed here four nights (Sunday -Wednesday) while visiting family. The room was small, and the bathroom even smaller. I banged my knee a couple times while moving about in the bathroom. The shower was nice–no tub. There were a couple electrical outlets to recharge gadgets, so that was nice. We had no noise at all and slept very well.
The front desk staff were all very friendly and helpful. Everyone spoke English, so that was helpful to us as we do not speak Dutch.
The location is nicely located in the center of the city very close to the city center.

I had a 1 night stay here before meeting up with a business meeting. All I needed after my 23 hours of flying was a hot shower, free internet and a bed. I got all of these from the Ibis. Sure the room was small as was the bathroom, but it was cheap and I was able to walk from the train station with ease. If you just need somewhere to use as a base I strongly recommend this venue.

Great for a weekend stay. The room was small, but comfortable. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is perfect for sightseeing and also a night out. The only downside was that the walls are very thin, so you could hear people walking and talking in the corridor and adjacent rooms.

A good budget- priced hotel - ideal for a short break or business stay. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. Hotel was clean and bright. Rooms were definitely not for those suffering from claustrophobia - compact is probably the nicest adjective to describe them. Wardrobe and shelving space very limited, shower-room is 'en suite sized'. with nowhere to put cosmetics etc. Noise is amplified by thin walls and laminate flooring. Location is great - everything worth seeing and doing is just a short walk away - even the station is only 15-20 minutes on foot. There is a bar(ish) area and a breakfast room, although we didn't indulge as there is a plethora of cheaper alternatives in the vicinity.

Room Tip: Rooms not overlooking the main road are quieter

Thank you very much for this positive review. I'm sure the positive points as e.g. the central situation, friendliness and helpfullness of the staff made the size of the room less important. Hope to be able to welcome you back to the Ibis hotel Leuven Centrum.

We stayed in Leuven for the weekend while attending a sports event on one day and for a bit of relaxation the other. Upon arrival we parked our car at the rear parking lot which only just had room for our (small) car. We were greeted by the staff politely and check-in went well. Rooms were not big but sufficient in everything. On both nights we woke up by some loudly talking people outside in the street, but then again what can you expect in a city crowded by students?
Breakfast buffet was abundant, we were well able to stack up on energy:)
Restaurants and the old city center are at walking distance, so we also got to have a look there.
All-in all we had a great stay and would for sure recommend this hotel to stay while in Leuven.

Room Tip: At the back of the hotel no/ less noise from the street?
