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.

I have stayed here before, before and after it was renovated. Maybe it has lost some of its character, but it is more comfortable, especially the public areas. Lovely bar, comfortable room, good breakfast al fresco. Went into the bathroom in the middle of the night, closed the door without putting on the light, and couldn't find my way out!... More

We booked 3 months earlier based on previous reviews. The room we were originally shown was overlooked by a huge crumbling building and overlooked a scruffy yard. We asked to move to a room with a view, but wished we hadn't. The second room was in the old part of the building. It was scruffy, drab, brown and depressing. No... More
