        A little bit dated but clean, comfortable and quiet.

        Good location, excellent site. The hotel is right next to the famous Groot Begijnhof (Grand Beguinage) of Leuven and within walking distance from the city centre. The hotel itself is the coziest place I ever stayed in Leuven, with a splendid garden and very nice modern-style rooms. Breakfast is good, and the staff is very friendly. I would highly recommend the Begijnhof Hotel to you.

        Clean and bar staff helpful. Did facilitate me with some food when I arrived 5 mins after kitchen closed. Good breakfasts and room very clean

        No tea or coffee making facilities in the room. Kitchen closes at 10pm you can't get food after that. No shops etc nearby that you csn get something to eat or drink. No minibar in the rooms either so if you arrive after 10pm to the hotel after a day of travelling then there is nothing apart from a free apple at Reception! Colleagues got far better value for money in hotels nearby.

        The room was very nice, clean and spacious. The breakfast was excellent with scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages and mushrooms which is unusual on the continent. There was plenty of other choices as well.

        A bit far from the railway station as the taxis were expensive.

      • Couple
        4.2

        For a 4 star hotel and the rather high price of the room, the room was very small and poor. The staff was not friendly and didn't react when people passed the waiting line and attended to them first.

      • Older travelers
        9.6

        Very nice and cozy hotel, excellent service, great rooms and a really great garden. The combination of being situated in the Begijnhof, with it wonderful medieval scenary, and being just a short walk from the very alive center of Leuven is unique. We very much enjoyed ourselves and felt very welcome.

        Nothing. Except having the bar open a bit longer than 23:00 ;)

        Location and setting

        The room. Old furniture, old bathroom, old t.v. 2 star hotel interior...

      • Older travelers
        8.2

        Being very near the Begijnhoff without being intrusive into it.

        Overpriced for what you get (compared with international standards)

      • Older travelers
        5.0

        the professionalism of the staff , and they do accept little dogs

        the first night a big party disturbed our full night rest ( until 05.00H)The second evening there was a football match again we couldn't enjoy our evening.

      • Single
        10.0

        My stay was excellent. The hotel was clean, the food excellent, and the staff eager to serve.

      • Family with children
        5.4

        The breakfast was great.

        If that's a four star hotel they must be very small stars. The room was expensive and looked like it hadn't changed since the early 80s. The bathroom was older and not clean.

      • Family with children
        4.2

        The garden was nice!

        Reception staff and room (must have been the oldest and last one available) made for an unpleasant stay.

      • Older travelers
        8.8

        Lovely gardens, breakfast, and very helpful staff

        The fitness room was very small, the cross trainer needed servicing so not very good for fitness

      • Single
        6.2

        Sorry, but isn't worth 4 stars. More like Ibis...

        Poor room for 4 stars

      • Single
        9.6

        Comfortable hotel, hospitable staff, and very pleasant location, within walking distance to city centre. Free wifi is also welcome.

        It would be nice to have tea and coffee making facilities in the room.
