Excellent hotel with modern features in an historic environment. Service and cleanliness were exceptional. Would highly recommend this hotel The location is great and car parking is available. The bar and lounge were great and outdoor courtyard was relaxing.

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

Not really any faults with the place. It is in a nice position in the centre of Leuven. However, it remains quiet and secluded. The rooms are very nice and the staff are pleasant and efficient. The only reason it did not get top marks is that it is a bit pricey.

Leuven is a university town full of young people and energy. We had a blast in the main square sitting outside watching soccer quarter-finals. My husband attended a music festival. There are many places to eat and shop in very close walking distance to the hotel. Note for those who have walking challenges, the streets are cobble stone. Our room... More

Stayed here five nights as we were in Leuven for our sons wedding. Our room (which was in the new section) was a very good size and comfortable. As was our bathroom. We could have had a party in it was so large but there was no proper shower. Sorry coming from Australia we are very use to showers and... More

We booked the hotel from oversea. The staff, then, was more than helpful. Once we got to the hotel we were treated with the same kindness and helpfulness We had a room, large high ceiling, beams in the old part of the hotel. Great large windows with wooden shutters , we had a view of the courtyard. Great location, walking... More

We were here for my husband's 40th birthday. They went above and beyond to make it a great experience, from leaving treats in the room to providing excellent dinner recommendations. The hotel itself is like others describe - charming modern rooms in a historic building. It's actually quite large but with the layout, you don't notice. The hotel was at... More
