I was surprised at how modern the interior of the hotel was. The staff were so kind and friendly, and you can tell they cared about their guests. Breakfast was delicious and the rooms were clean and well maintained. I would definitely stay here again. The only concern is that the hotel is not ADA compliant if you are an... More

I had been using the Boardhouse accommodation before, and was quit impressed by the price quality ratio of the place. Unfortunately the " what you see is what your get" quote doesn't seem to be the m.o. of the owner of this place… Even though i booked a room in the Boardhouse accommodation ( via booking.com) i was " moved"...

My party of four travelled to Belgium from Aberdeen and stayed in two rooms at the Boardhouse in Leuven as our base for the 2014 Rock Werchter festival.

We stayed here for 4 nights while in Leuven for the RockWerchter festival. The staff were very friendly and accommodating (5/5). Rooms are clean and comfortable. We had basic room which still had a mini bar, TV etc. We didn't have breakfast or any meals at the hotel. Fridge and safe were both 'broken' but quickly sorted out by the... More

Hotel was recommended from a colleague as an alternative to the usual airport-business hotels. Leuven itself is a much nicer city compared to Brussels, it has a wonderful old city centre, absolutely beautiful. Having the option in the evening to do more than taking a train down town we also accepted the 20-30 rush hour drive to the airport area.... More

Excellent hotel, clean and nice rooms, new renovated, great breakfast, not in centrum but easy to get there. Free wireless internet but connection sometimes not that good. Free bicycles are the tip of the cake.
