“Great budget option”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2013

It is well situated: almost attached to the train station and a short walk to any location in downtown. It was clean and the rooms were actually decent sized. Great price: about half of anywhere else we found in Leuven. They have free Wi-Fi too. I would recommend arriving by train if possible because then you do not have to worry about parking. To find the hotel, walk out the eastern tunnel of the train station, take the stairs or ramp up to street level and you're there. They do offer breakfast for 7.50 euro. Although it is directly beside the train station I really heard no noise from trains or vehicles. I would certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: An adult can fit on the 3rd, bunk-style bed in the 3-person rooms.

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.
