“An outstanding hotel in Leuven!”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

The staff was very friendly, the breakfast was the best imaginable for a hotel breakfast, good coffee in a large pot, excellent pastries, fresh fruit salad. The breakfast room is a pleasant blend of historic and modern. Beautiful view of the theater. Amazingly calm, elegant the high rooms, very central. Excellent!

The internet was not always strong enough, seemingly due to the provider.

The hotel is located on the mean street leading from the train station to city hall (where all the bars and restaurants are). The staff is very nice, the rooms clean and nice. The third floor rooms have sloping ceilings, so you're bound to bang your head. Also, prepare to be scared by the ghoulish statue when you get out of the elevator on the 3rd. Breakfast was very good.

Room Tip: If you have trouble with stairs, do NOT accept a room on the third floor. One enters the room throu...

Nice place, a 10-15 minute walk from the train station. Funky boat hanging in the hallway. Right across from the theatre, etc. so in a pretty shopping area. Teeny tiny elevator to take you upstairs.

remember to ask for espresso instead of the regular coffee

The absolute best thing about the Theater Hotel is the location. The whole town is right at your fingertips; and what a charming, beautiful little town it is!

Upon check-in, the extremely helpful and friendly receptionist shared with us all sorts of information about the town, pointed out some of the sights, and even suggested restaurants. Our trip happened to coincide with the Marktrock music festival, so there were no problems finding ways to entertain ourselves. Within a few blocks of the hotel there were at least three main stages with live music. It was a wonderful experience!

The hotel itself is a little worn and dated. Our room was small, but clean. The hotel is not air conditioned, but they did have fans in the room, and we found it to be comfortable. The included breakfast is lovely, a nice way to start a day. It is a three star hotel, at a reasonable price, in a wonderful location. If you are not expecting anything more than that, you will not be disappointed.

Stayed at this hotel for a few nights while on a business trip in local area.

Leuven is close to Brussels and a very nice university town with much culture to experience.

The Theater Hotel is right in the middle of town close to everything. It is a quirky building with an entrance between shops and restaurants with VERY STEEP and narrow stairs taking you up to the tiny reception on the first floor. These stairs continue to the various floors above hosting the bedrooms and breakfast room. There is one small lift also servicing each floor.

Rooms appear a bit dated but were clean enough and reasonably well appointed. My room was over two levels with bedroom above and bathroom / room entrance below.

Staff well helpful and friendly and spoke very good English. Breakfast was good in a nice large and airy breakfast room.

Hotel was reasonably cheap compared to other city center hotels and so if you are on a budget this would be an acceptable choice.

If you like the feeling of a big chain hotel then probably not best hotel for you.
