La Royale
Ranked #17 of 18 Hotels in Leuven
Reviewed 12 June 2013 via mobile

As a budget traveller, a good accommodation that meets your needs is hard to come by but our stay at this hotel was very comfortable.
We stayed in a double bed room and the things we requested prior to staying were all met.
We've also noticed that the bathrooms looked the most evidently refurbished.
Apart from that, the free wifi was fast, the free breakfast was good enough and the staff were pleasant though do not expect European customer service to be the best in the world.

I came here for work but really liked the hotel. Of course it is a 3 star hotel, so you shouldnt get carried away. The room was on the small side but the hotel has been recently refurbished and it is attractive. The bath room is very nice, with outside window and a very good shower. Service is very agreable, they make you feel welcome. The hotel is near the train station, which means that you are 20 minutes away from Brussels airport. It is also 5 minutes away from the shopping town area. Breakfast is good with coffee, juice, a selection of cereal, yougurt, several types of bread and toast. There is also eggs, bacon and sausage, if you get up early. The down remark is checking out time (11AM), dont know if this is usual in Belgium.

This 3 star hotel is in front of the rail station and in the city centre of Leuven. This hotel has been renovated and the rooms are fine but so luxes. The breakfast is good. There is a bar/restaurant in the hotel. Its a good hotel to visit Leuven.

Stayed here for a meeting in Leuven, which was paid for by my company, so I cannot comment on value. The hotel was fine. Nothing fancy. Quite basic, but suitable for a place to lay my head at night. Staff was fine. Breakfast was ok... not great, but not horrible either.

The room was so small that the bed barely fit in the space. There was no door in the toiliet and the closet was placed in the toilet. Too many ants everywhere.
There was no telephone in the room and this made my life difficult as am allergic and had not the chance to communicate at least with the reception. I have asked to wake me up to catch up the train but this service didnt appear.
No a/c.
The fotos they have on their website do not appear the reality.
The breakfast was average.
Anytime I needed the lift, it was full of detergents or dirty sheets/towels. So, most of the times I had to go to the 4th floor by stairs.
No worthy the value of money paid.

Room Tip: Ask to see the room before you book it.

Ended up booking this place after the Etap was fully booked. The previous reviews were a bit scary, but in reality, the hotel was good.

It did look as if there had been a recent refurbishment, but that's not a bad thing, is it?

The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was clean and fine although the view wasn't the world's best. Still, I don't stay in city hotels to gaze out of the window.

There are a few plus points over the nearby Etap
- Free breakfast (which was very good - the espresso was great!)
- Charm
- Decent number of plug points
- No steps to climb up with a suitcase.
