Ibis Budget Hotel Leuven
Ranked #5 of 18 Hotels in Leuven
GreenLeadersBronze level
Reviewed March 25, 2014

Note carefully the designation "budget" if you plan to stay here. The place is very utilitarian, with minimal facilities. No tea/coffee making facilities in the room. The sink is in the bedroom, with toilet and shower in cubicles. Limited storage and clothes hanging facilities in the room. The hotel has no car park, although there is free street parking and a free car park up the road.

That said it is clean and has good TV and free Wi-Fi systems. Situated on the edge of town but close to the railway station and has a supermarket close by. At €69 for a double room, it is not cheap for what you get. I probably won't stay here again - but the place could be OK for some people.

I spent 2 nights in this Ibis budget (formerly Etap Hotel) - recently built, it is a great value for money. It has no parking but a public one is very close (200m) at affordable prices. Location is quite and safe, but no facilities around (I have only seen a Frituur - no other shops/pharmacy/....)

Stayed here for a few nights. Awful hotel, tiny room, no separate bathroom. Stains on bedding, and very noisy from building site. Cheap yes but not good value. Maybe one night would be ok but wouldn't recommend it for a longer stay.

The Ibis Budget is a decent option in Leuven. It is convenient for the train station but a 10-15 minute walk to the city centre/university buildings. Rooms are basic but include TV and fairly reliable WIFI. Bed was comfortable and shower hot and fast with rooms cleaned everyday.

However - it might be the generally high price of the city, but I think it is too expensive for what it is: around €65 for a single bed per night, no breakfast included. As other reviewers have noted, it feels more like a hostel with private rooms. There are also no kettle or fridge facilities in the room.
