Ibis budget are basically the lowest in the price of the Ibis range. However, they are a no frills and this one in Leuven came up to the same standard as other ones we've used in Belgium. Location-wise extremely handy for the station and from there to the centre are you're looking at no more than a 15 minute walk....

Great Hotel, it is located very close to Leuven train station, you only have to go at the end of station to find it. The prices are not expensive, if you do not take a breakfast. The room are cleaned and the people in the receptions are very friendly.

Great location. Budget friendly. My room was really good. No fancy things, but simple and clean. Check in was fast and staff were very polite and helpfull. Breakfast is simple - cheese, ham, bread and cereal selection - ok if you are staying for couple of days.

Friendly receiption & quick check-in, clean bed, towels, shower ok (don t like its glass door), no hair-dryer, wifi worked well, breakfast ok (missed the eggs but did not ask or claim), remember this is a budget hotel. There should be more possibility for hanging the clothes (jacket/trousers). Less place for suit-cases/bags. So close to the Leuven train station, underground...

The location is great- it is located beside the train station, so once you hop off the train and out of the station, the building is just a walk away. But unfortunately it means that you sleep with the sound of buzzing train. Room is very clean, modern and simple, perfect for backpacker's need just to rest on and spend...

The hotel has clean hotel rooms with all facilities you need. Wifi was fast enough. Friendly staff and free map of the city at arrival. Close walking distance to the centre. They provide a basic breakfast.

The hotel is next door to the station and is a good walk into Leuven up the main shopping street. There are a number of places to eat in the area to suit a range of budgets. The rooms are standard Ibis Budget type, functional but comfortable and free wifi. Finding the hotel and associated parking was a bit of...

Basic but clean. Traveling with a family of 5 (3 older children) struggle to get value for money but this ticked all the boxes. Close to station and town with lots of choices for places to eat. Staff offered professional friendly service and a great breakfast buffet was served. Only downside is paying €20 for parking overnight

I spent one night in the hotel. I found the front desk to be friendly and efficient. The room looked brand new and had all the basics. The breakfast was adequate (I realize it is a budget hotel, but still for €7.50 I did not find it very good - mostly bread and things for on top of bread). For...

We had a reservation for 4 days, during the Rock Werchter Festival. When we arrived, they told us they have cancelled our reservation because the credit card didn't work. They didn't inform us (no phone call, no message, no email), so we arrived and they want us to sleep at the street or pay more to sleep in the other...
