Ibis Budget Hotel Leuven
Ranked #5 of 18 Hotels in Leuven
GreenLeadersBronze level
Reviewed 9 May 2012

We chose this hotel, because it was a good place to stay on our way from Brussels to Liege.
From Brussels airport Leuven is like 20 min by train.
The hotel very close to the train station, which is very convenient if you travel to other Belgium cities, if you want to go to the centre - it's only 10-15 min walk.
This hotel was a great choice - It is a good hotel for its price. Clean rooms for 2, nicely lightned, TV in the room, good shower (no big space in shower, but ok), no wardrobe, but there are some hangers. the hotel is basic, but nice, and has everything you need for a stay.
In the lobby there are machines with tea, coffee and snacks.
if you want quality for adequate price, it's what you need. If you want luxury or have any special demands - find something more expensive.

I have stayed in many budget and expensive hotels and this is by far the worst hotel I have stayed in. the rooms are small and 100% plastic. if anyone in any room is having a shower you hear it as if it was in your room. however, by the far the biggest fault is that it is on top of leuven train station and you hear every train that goes by (and I mean every train). the worst night's sleep I have had for years!!!!

The hotel is clean and looks great but it is noisy due to work arround and the service is really bad. No willingness to assist you. No storage of luggage after your stay, No delayed check out unless you pay. (Even not 1 hour although they dont have yet new commers).

Thank you for your comment. I am pleased to see you liked the modern look of the hotel and apreciated the cleanness at the hotel. It is indeed very important for us. ETAP hotels offer low priced hotel rooms with a basic service. As you described in the comment it is very important to me and my team to propose alternatives and solutions for guests. Luggage storage can be handled at the railway station luggage safe deposit lockers 100m from the hotel at a rate of approximately 3.5€. Even if you add this to the rate of your stay Etap will be by far cheaper than any comparable Hotel in Leuven.
The late checkout policy is indeed important for us as we need to have the rooms cleaned by 12o'clock for the check-in and room maids are leaving at that time. A late checkout (even if it's only 1h later) results for us in a room that cannot be sold the same day.
We hope many other customers like our budget friendly hotel solution and we will be glad to give them the best for budget on their stay.
