The station is very clean and well-marked for new comers but not all platforms have elevators which is problem if you have to drag down or carry up a heavy suitcase bound for the airport or back! Just a small observation..

As everything in Belgium, this train station works perfectly - at least the 4 times I used it I had no delay in any train arriving neither I had them during the travel amongst the several stations before arriving to Leuven. There's quite a lot of commerce around the station, from restaurants to convenience stores.

Acceptable, great service, clean, trains were perfectly on time, easy to ride, helpful announcements. Nice station, trains to liege, brussels, Anvers, etc. Disappointed to see people smoking everywhere in the train station though

We elected to take the train to Brussels and it was speedy and comfortable. It ran every 20 minutes to Brussels, stopped at the city center near the Grot Market. Inexpensive for a roundtrip.

Situated as the focal point partially pedestrianised square and facing down the main avenue to town, the station has been beautifully restored. The ticket and adjoining waiting areas, with their high ceilings and bright stonework evoke the memory of travel in a more relaxed bygone age, when it was still a great adventure for many people. The canopy is modern... More

This station is in a good spot. The town is readily accessible and the staff at the station were very helpful in pointing me to the right platform

Beautiful but rather busy station, with a perfect integration of historic facade and new platforms. Very inviting for a visit.

If you like stations and modern architecture, than this is one to see. Leuven is at the crossroads and the stations play it roll in it.
