“Great location and friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

Really nice place, trendy and great location, it has a home feeling as it's not too big. Staff super friendly, always willing to help as I was requesting a last minute booking. I stay there for a month on a business trip

A group of us visited Leuven for a weekend. We booked a month or so in advance and got the rooms at a great price. There was no issue finding the hotel, and check in was all organised in advance and only took a minute or two. The bar downstairs is actually a good spot and the pool table is a good touch to chill out for a few minutes. Rooms were a fine size and the bathrooms and showers were very nice indeed. If we did return to Leuven we would check this place out first when looking for somewhere to stay.

Very nice hotel, junior suite is very cosy and a lot of space. The bed was very big. Interior is stylish, warm and trendy. Like to stay here again when I'll be in Leuven. The only thing was that a lot of things at breakfast were empty and it took a while before they brought new things.

Simply fantastic! I last stayed here 4 years earlier when it was still Mercure, and the makeover is brilliant. Very hip, trendy and tasteful design that will appeal to a wide range of clients. Clean, spacious, comfortable top floor room was quiet, with no audible street noise. The best sleep quality I've had in a long time. Scrumptuous breakfast buffet. Well done Pentahotel, I'll be back!

Nice hotel, well situated in Leuven, walking distance of train station and close to restaurants and bars. Modern and clean with good meeting facilities and a great interior design - not your typical boring business hotel!

Great location close to the restaurants and shops in the center of Leuven. Rooms near the front of the hotel can be noisy at night from the students enjoying themselves. Great breakfast buffet and nice bar.

Hotel has been completely revamped compared to a few years ago! Much nicer now! It has 'a caracter'! Quiet despite the fact you're in the center. Nice rooms, friendly, everyhing clean... very nice and original breakfast! Only point of improvement perhaps: room for breakfast is cose but quite small
