The hotel is next door to the station and is a good walk into Leuven up the main shopping street. There are a number of places to eat in the area to suit a range of budgets. The rooms are standard Ibis Budget type, functional but comfortable and free wifi. Finding the hotel and associated parking was a bit of... More

Basic but clean. Traveling with a family of 5 (3 older children) struggle to get value for money but this ticked all the boxes. Close to station and town with lots of choices for places to eat. Staff offered professional friendly service and a great breakfast buffet was served. Only downside is paying €20 for parking overnight

I spent one night in the hotel. I found the front desk to be friendly and efficient. The room looked brand new and had all the basics. The breakfast was adequate (I realize it is a budget hotel, but still for €7.50 I did not find it very good - mostly bread and things for on top of bread). For... More

We had a reservation for 4 days, during the Rock Werchter Festival. When we arrived, they told us they have cancelled our reservation because the credit card didn't work. They didn't inform us (no phone call, no message, no email), so we arrived and they want us to sleep at the street or pay more to sleep in the other... More

You must understand that on a very busy day as the first day of the festival of Werchter we check all the credit cards of the guests on the day of arrival, because we have constantly a demand for rooms.

We stayed here on the recommendation of a friend who is a flight steward for Delta and is based at the Brussels airport. The Ibis is very reasonably priced. If you book online, and a bit ahead they give you a discount which was 20 euros less per night than the rate I heard quoted to a walk-in customer when... More
