This used to be an expensive but grotty hotel that we only used because of its closeness to the motorway. Ibis has totally transformed it. Rooms are clean and comfortable and its really good value for money. The only one negative is that coming from Brussels it is difficult to find - and almost impossible with a sat nav, You have to turn off the road at the Heverlee service station and find a small service road out of the back of the complex over to the other side of the motorway. For your first visit make sure to take their phone number with you!!

Glad we took the advice of other reviewers. This is a great Ibis hotel. It's not luxury, but perfectly fine for somewhere to stay. Some reviews say it is difficult to find, but it is on the Westbound services of the E40. It is well signed from both directions, coming off Eastbound you take the back exit and drive over the bridge. Streetview on Google Maps shows the old services, which have been totally replaced by the Ibis and new shop and restaurant.

Other good advice is not to take the 14 Euro breakfast coupon. We had freshly cooked eggs and bacon (you have to ask), toast, orange juice and coffee for under 10 euro. Breakfast is in the normal service area restaurant.

Only downside was the bed. The double is two singles next to each other, with a small gap inbetween. However, they were comfortable.

Stayed at this hotel for the nearby beer festival. It is a hotel at a motorway service station but the services also have a restaurant and sandwich bar. The room was large and comfortable. All reception staff were very good and friendly. The rooms could benefit from a hair dryer but other than that I couldn't fault it.
It is however quite a distance from Leuven town centre, about €25 in a taxi. Leuven is a great place but if I were going to just the town I'd stay somewhere in the centre.
For any other reason I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

I have stayed at this hotel a few times recently, and find that the heating system does
not cope adequately during cold winter periods, even when thermostat is adjusted to
maximum.
Otherwise no complaints, although the lack of heating in the room is serious.

The hotel offered just what I needed:
- A modern, spotless room.
- Comfortable bed
- Very good noise isolation to the outside.
- Fast and stable internet connection.
- Friendly staff.
- Good selection of international TV programs (in e.g. Flemish, French, German, English)
- Low rates.
- Free parking.

However there are also some downsides:
- No hair dryer in the room (available on request at reception)
- The town is too far away to walk, you need a car
- Breakfast is pretty expensive (14€).
- At the end of the corridor (rooms 18, 19) there is a low humming noise, I guess from AC

For the 14€ you get "all you can eat" breakfast (nice bread, bacon, eggs etc are made fresh, but you have to ask for them, it is nowhere announced) but if you don't eat much, you probably pay less if you just pay for what you eat.

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms at the end of the corridor in first floor, low humming noise there. (Not load but sl...

This was the newest Ibis I have stayed in, and what a treat! Not at all 'tired' or dated!

Although right next to the Motorway this is the QUIETIST hotel I have ever been in......didn't hear a thing from the road......a great sleep.

It is a basic room with no frills as expected (no mini bar, kettle, hairdryer available at reception if you need one!). But if this is all you need I would highly recommend it. Very easy to get to from both the main road and from local roads :-)

There is a motorway type shop/restaurante but do not be fooled - it serves great fresh foods cooked to order, so don't be put off by this. The food is a little pricey but that's normal!

Overall a place I will certainly visit again when I am in the area.
