“Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

Good stay, small rooms. Cozy and welcoming. I would stay again, breakfast is expensive and the prices could be lower. Beer served at reception for 2 euros. Annoying follow up repeatedly asking for reviews.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

I reserved Etap Hotel Leuven Centrum via Booking.Com and received their e-mail confirmation; however, it took 2 hours to locate because the Etap was not on any map - somehow, it had changed its name to the Ibis Budget Hotel. We could not understand why our e-mail confirmation did not reflect this. We were tired having arrived by train from London on Friday night and it was most disappointing that the hotel was minutes away - not the 2 hours it took us. Once located, we were pleased with our tiny, budget, 'but perfectly formed' room, it was clean, no fuss and appeared freshly decorated - more than adequate for our 3 night stay. The staff was friendly but the one negative point was that it was so hot in the room at night with no a/c and windows which couldn't be opened. The housekeeping was a little 'touch and go', one day it was not serviced so bins remained full, we had no soap and only one towel was provided on our last day. Extremely good value for money.

Room Tip: Top floors give grand view of the town.

Clean and simple room, more then adequate for my stay in Leuven.
Overal WIFI connection, and a pc near the counter if you forgot to bring you laptop.
Staff was most friendly. Its situated next to the train station and on the other side the city centre with its many cozy bar's and friendly Flemish people.
Only minus was the window that couldn't open while it was warm in the room in day time.
