The hotel is not a five star Hotel with all amenities you might desire, but if you are looking for a clean, convenienent place where to sleep and have a shower, then it is just perfect. We were looking exactly for this and nothing more. Relative to our needs,therefore, we found it to be excellent. One minor thing: if you get there by car and satnav system, the building is by the train station and does not look like a Hotel (rather more like a business building) and there are no external signs that give a clue of where the Hotel is. We drove by 4 times until we found out that the "Ibis" Hotel sign was located on the 6st Floor, placed high up.

May I offer my sincere thanks for your kind comments about your stay at the hotel.
I'm aware there are missing some roadsigns and logo at the front side of the hotel, but nevertheless the hotel is situated in the historical centre of Leuven and for that reasons there are a lot of restrictions.
I hope to to welcoming you back very soon.
Best regards,
Michèle Deprez - General Manager

I was pleasantly surprised by the Ibis. As expected in a budget hotel the room was quite small with no tea making facility. If all you require is somewhere clean and quiet to sleep this is ideal.The hotel is situated not too far from the town centre, next to the railway station. Contrary to other reviews we didn't hear any sound of trains. Although compact the room had a shower cubicle and wc cubicle, tv and free wifi. I would certainly stay there again.

We were actually quite impressed by this hotel for what it is and how it markets itself. It is very modern and right next to the main station. It is bordering on almost being a pod-style hotel with very small rooms with a shower cubicle and WC cubicle in the room, but it has been done in a very modern and quite well-finished style with everything in really good working order. It certainly would not be a appropriate for a romantic weekend or special holiday but for somewhere to stay, perfectly adequate. The things they have cut back on are, for our money, the things you really don't need, and the things that are well done are the things you do. The shower is well designed with Grohe fittings and worked well, the rooms are absolutely sound proof and there is a great blackout blind. Check in and check out was really efficient, and there was perfectly acceptable housekeeping every day. We stayed during Rock Werchter (we are too old and sensible to camp!) and it was perfect for our needs because the train gets in at the station and the festival bus leaves for the station, so we could get back late at night and then sleep in soundly before getting up and going for a wander in town and getting breakfast. Breakfast looked adequate (cereal, rolls, toast etc) and cheap at 7.50 euros but we either grabbed something from the quite good supermarket below or walked in to the town where there are loads of great places to eat, but if you were a backpacker or young family probably would be fine. There were a range of TV channels in a range of languages on a perfectly good flat screen TV, and although no cupboards lots of hooks and clever storage spaces. The only real gripes was that you have no control over the room temperature (having said that It was 22-29 degrees during our stay and the room never was really too hot), the towels are a bit thin and small (I'd be tempted to bring my own if I stayed again) and the coffee from the machine downstairs was pretty awful (and the buttons not in English), but overall these were minor faults. The mattress was quite thin but actually we slept fine so it wasn't a problem. So definitely recommend for somewhere to stay if location and convenience is important. A good example of how budget doesn't have to mean awful.
