The hotel is set in a historic building belonging to a cloister and is located in the centre of the city. Reception was very friendly and professional. Our room was very nicely decorated and was clean. It had a modern renovated bathroom, but due to the slanted roof of the building there was no separate standing shower, only a hand...

The place is nice, the way they changed the convent in to a hotel is nice and they try to keep everything as much as they could original. The standart room we had was nice, descend size with a bathroom with bath and shower combined, so you have to get over the bathtub in order to get in to the...

This is my second visit to this wonderful little hotel. I was only supposed to be here for two nights but had to extend my stay for a further two nights . No issues at all , booked in with no fuss. Great staff throughout. If you are in Leuven , I couldn't recommend this hotel enough. Will be back.

Stayed here for the second time. Nice hotel with very nice rooms. Very friendly staff. The hotel is located on short walking distance from the nice city centre of Leuven. Breakfast is very good with a lot off different choices.

It is a very good hotel. People say - the best in town. Though, I could not give it an "Excellent" mark. Slowish reception, inaccurate restaurant recommendations, no dining on premises... The strangest of all was a lack of door in the shower room. I have never experienced such a design before. All the rest was great: inexpensive, centrally located,...

The hotel is well-located near the centre of the city. It is in a quiet street, and so may be a little hard to find. Our room was in the new part of the hotel and was very comfortable and clean. The bathroom was large, with a bubble bath with a hand-held shower, which is not my favourite combination, but...

Our room was very run down, not expected to have such a low standard at that rate. The internet was not working either. We checked other 2 rooms but they were at this same “worn” state. Overpriced for the standard

Stayed here for one night with my wife in a cosy plus room. A very spacious room and bathroom as well; jacuzzi and rainshower included! High quality breakfast with a glass of cava to finish it off. Friendly service, in a few minutes walk from the centre of Leuven.

The hotel has been renewed since our last stay here several years ago. The new part of the hotel looks really great. An interior decoration architect has developed a color scheme around red-grey and black. The hotel looks modern, a lot of daylight, spacious, nice sitting corners in the corridors. The hotel features a spacious underground parking. The garden one...
