Stayed here for 5 days with my husband, who was on a business trip. Really nice place. Takes 7 min by taxi from the train station, could take a bus for 2 euros from the station as well. Walking distance to the center of the city (10-15 min) One day we even walked from the station to the hotel through the center. It's adjoined to the historic monastery from 15th century, beautiful views. Rooms are smaller than in the US but standard for Europe, beds are very comfortable with duvet covers, in- room Keurig type coffe/ tea maker and fridge. Breakfast is included and served in a beautiful hall with the views of the monastery and the courtyard, very romantic. Plenty of food, all fresh - anything from cold cereal and yogurt to eggs, pastries, great selection of cheeses and bread, teas and coffee ( including espresso drinks and hot chocolate). Staff was really friendly and very helpful with any sightseeing questions, train schedules etc. Free wi-fi, nice onsite bar and restaurant. To keep it real - the bathrooms are a bit weird with the shower door only through half of the bathtub so there was always water on the floor! Other than that - loved this place, would come back for sure!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Finding that unique location is challenging, but in the Begijnhof Hotel you enjoy the best of both worlds. Situated at the edge of the city of Leuven you are in the city centre as easily as in nature. In addition it's nice to know that we are situated in a recognised quiet area in the middle of UNESCO world heritage. Easy to say that the Begijnhof Hotel is all but average. The atmosphere exudes tradition, but with a modern feel. The hotel is very well situated and offers a car park with CCTV, but also a quiet green environment, with a view of the 13th Century Spanish Quarter. Be surprised by the unique location of the Begijnhof Hotel. A 15-minute drive from Brussels Airport and at the edge of the city centre of Leuven, the hotel is situated in the quietest and most picturesque part of town. It is one of the few little known urban quiet areas for a reason. ... more less
