Been there for first time, you are very close to the townhall and many restaurant and life close-by, but quietness of the hotel and the rooms are really good. The attention was very good and I enjoy the stay.

Stayed here a number of times, on business trips. The bedrooms, bathrooms, service at the reception, are all according to what you need as business traveller. The hotel parking is to pay extra (and not cheap). There is a big difference between the 'old building' rooms and the newer rooms. Breakfast is below the average for this type of hotels,... More

Visited for a couple of nights on the way to Germany. Despite having stayed in Belgium literally dozens of times before, it was the first time in Leuven and staying in a Martin's hotel. It must be said that both exceeded expectations. Hotel is wonderful. Central yet quiet with large airy rooms and superbly decorated throughout. Excellent breakfast served overlooking... More

Together with my husband, we just stayed an overnight in Martin's Klooster Hotel in Leuven and we had a blast! It is a wonderful hotel that combines historical and modern vibe in the interior. We stayed in the superior room, which had a very comfortable bed, excellent air-co (very much appreciated during this hot weekend), excellent large bathroom with huge... More

I was pleasantly surprised! The staff is very friendly. While checking in, we were provided a 'free upgrade', I don't know whether this was a sales trick or not, but the room was very nice nevertheless. We also received a voucher for courtesy drinks at the hotel bar where we could choose whatever we wanted. They even have a small... More

Second stay at Martin's. The restaurant has shut down and now serves as breakfast area. The hotel is located in an old monastery (kloster) and has kept the garden. There is a modern wing and a historical wing and the room interior reflects this fact. I prefer the historical wing with interior details from back in the days. Wifi worked... More

I've stayed at MK a number of times now and have never been disappointed. The rooms are small, but very clean with great bathrooms/rainfall shower pressure. In addition to the nice rooms, the hotel offers a delicious breakfast with a variety of tasty hot and cold options for 20 Euro. While the price is a bit steep, the selection is... More

We stayed only for one night. What i liked a lot was the bathtub - larger than usual so you could really enjoy your morning bath. We stayed in the comfort room and did not miss anything. At the arrival we asked for a double bed (instead of twin bed) and there was no issue even though it was a... More

During my two week stay in Europe, this was my favorite hotel. I probably won't have a reason in the future to visit Leuven, but if I do, I'll definitely stay here. Large, comfortable room. Good AC. Quiet. Good location.

My favourite stay for many years, and getting better every time. A little misunderstanding about the break in bed service was compensated without me even asking for it spontaneously. Have tried the "alternatives" in Leuven , but they were always disappointing. Perfect for both business and pleasure. Highly recommended.
