Andreas and his staff are always top notch, helping out with trip planning, restaurant suggestions, train tickets, etc. Rooms are clean and well sized. Breakfast is very good with a nice selection. Good job on making the bacon superb. TV stations selections could use some improvement.

This hotel is in the center of Leuven. The hotel and the rooms are very cozy. My room (110) at the end of the corridor was very spacious with great beds and very quiet. My colleagues stayed in other rooms and they complained about the noise from the terraces outside or from the other rooms and elevators. The breakfast was...

Had a nice stay at Penta Hotel Leuven. Excellent informal atmosphere and friendly staff. The room was clean with a tasteful interior. I especially liked the shower in the bathroom that allowed me to stand-up straight (>2m). Also the breakfast buffet was good with lot's of choice.

Rooms are somewhat basic, but everything works. I loved the shower. Communal areas are on the dark side. Location is great for visiting the town. Staff is enthusiastic and very friendly. Found it a bit to expensive for what was offered.

The intitial look and feel is somewhat 'budget', but this hotel is clearly better than this. The bathroom with a great shower was a pleasant surprise. The check-in and check-out was done with great enthusiasm. The room was simple but complete with an open wardrobe. We loved the late checkout feature on Sundays.

Generally, the hotel is a good one: modern atmosphere, warm staff. However, being located in the center of town has its disadvantages: it was quite loud at night. This is nothing that the hotel can control - but just a bit of information. Also, service at the bar could have been a bit quicker... That being said, I'd chose this...

Dear guest, Thank you for your honest review about your stay! Pentahotel is situated in the middle of the city center. Due to the well-regarded universities, Leuven is known to be a student-city. There are some cafés, restaurants, pubs,.. on the "oude markt", which is a couple of minutes walking from the hotel. I would like to offer my apologies...

It was a good hotel, however, it was not easy to get there, although the staff did all they could to guide us. The hotel is situated in a car restricted area, where on this Saturdy it was full of shopping pedestrians. this is not the fault of the hotel, of course. The old leuven center is close-by with lots...
