The hotel is ideally situated on walking distance (15 minutes) of Leuven centre. Quit clean room, good (very long) bed, free wifi and a good breakfast. The hotel has a parking garage (cost 12 euro's a day). The only distadvantage is the price (90 euro's excluding tax and excluding parking) a day.

We didn't book breakfast but was charge for it. I emailed the hotel and called but still waiting for their reply. I was told they were too busy... More

- bar is great, fresh Stella and other nice beverages right next to the brewery - bartenders are very friendly and kind (Tatjana / Dominici) - reception is positive - rooms are usual, sometimes pipes have noises....which should not be the case for a 4 star hotel, windows are dirty and on the curtains I saw cigarette fire burn signs....

Easy access, nice, clean rooms, great bed & linnen with different cussions :-) really enjoyed my stay. Only negative point was the obligation to give a credit card or 50€ cash upfront to cover possible minibar expenses. The room was already paid for by the employer.

It is unfortunate that I have to give this hotel a very bad rating despite the fact that I find Novotel chain of hotels excellent in general.

This particular Novotel boasts a friendly, helpful staff with a nice bar and restaurant and it's located right in the heart of town. It's literally across the street from the Stella Artois brewery and a 10 min. walk to all the shopping and sights of the center of town.

Nice hotel close to central Leuven. It has all the normal stuff, clean, OK food and acceptable gym. Very friendly staff and good service. The air con in the rooms is basically useless. If warm rooms suit you then it's fine, however if you fancy sleeping in a coolish room this is not the place for you.
