The hotel was 10 minutes walking from city center. The Hammam was out of order and we discovered this when we were in the fitness area. The men at reception ask me for 20 euros for beer and water never drunk! It' incredible. Never happened in my life of traveller.

Great little hotel within easy 15 minute walk of town centre. Had two interconnecting rooms, so could look after kids. Very clean. Ate out for dinner, but did have an excellent breakfast, with lots of choice. Had underground car park, which was very convenient. Would go back, if visited Leuven again.

A reasonably priced modern hotel within a short walk of the town centre and railway station. Our room was comfortable and clean with a good sized bathroom and separate toilet. Three BBC channels on the television. This hotel gets very busy at times as it takes coach parties. The breakfast buffet was good with plenty of choice including cooked breakfast... More

I stayed at Novotel Leuven for just 1 night (30+ visits here todate), and was made very welcome by all the staff. Its nice to see people smile, it shows they are enjoying the job. They are a credit to the brand.

Large clean rooms and a welcoming bar/restaurant. Hotel location is great for transport links and just outside the town centre, a 15 min stroll will see you in the town centre. Sightseeing here is top notch as are the bars and restaurants. Would really like to go again and would probably stay here if I do.

If you prefer nice clean well-lit rooms with modern furniture, then this is probably the best hotel in Leuven. The breakfast buffet spread is decent --- my only complaint is that there could be a few more hot items. One downside is that it is a bit of a walk away from the town center. The best thing about this... More

Despite being a family room we had a perfect temperature and facilities. The breakfast was lovely and the kids really enjoyed it too. If you're going to Leuven, please use this hotel. It really...
