The 5-star rating at Tripadvisor is by no means an exaggeration for Begijnhof. This is a gorgeous little guesthouse, lovingly restorated by owner Michel and his wife right next to the gate of the historic Beguinage of Leuven, at Sheep Street :)
Although we had to make do with a smaller single room because of the town overflowing with Rock Werchter visitors, we had a comfortable stay with no complaints whatsoever.
The owners are always there for the guest, and pleasant company, but without being intrusive. The place they've created is arty, clean and beautiful, with a wonderful garden that felt like a peaceful haven from the summer heat (or rain).
The guesthouse is only a short walk from the downtown attractions and nightlife, very close to bus stops, and a 20-minute walk from the railway station. The rooms are rustic, atmospheric and old-fashioned in the best possible taste, but with modern amenities and a rich breakfast that kept us going for hours.
Furthermore, the owners do not raise their prices during Werchter, which is a blessing for rock fans looking for affordable accomodation but loathe to camp. If we return for next year's festival, we just know where we'll stay.
Book early in peak season, as there are only 6 rooms in Begijnhof Guesthouse (not to be confused with the larger nearby hotel of almost the same name).
Leuven is such a beautiful and lively little town, especially in the university months.

We really enjoyed staying at the Begijnhof. We were a group filling up the whole place. It is an old building, nicely renovated to state-of-the art standard. Good breakfast, modern and large rooms with good bathrooms, flexible and really nice staff. Silent rooms. The only problem is not using NFC keys, rather old fashioned keys which I mistakenly brought with me. But I managed to give it back. We will defintely be back and I recommend the place!

Room Tip: Comfy beds, which are large, but no twin rooms.

The Guesthouse Begijinhof was simply amasing. It is in a central and artistic position, just in front of one of the oldest and fascinating part of the city. Michel, the owner, is really super welcoming and careful to the need of the guests. The whole building is very well restored and furnished. The breaksfast is rich of very high quality and also home-made products, a unique experience. I would definitely come back there

This is a highly recommended place to stay in Leuven. It might seem a bit pricey, but it is value form money. The room is comfortable, the bathroom very functional with a wonderful shower and the highlight is the breakfast: home made bread, home made jam and eggs from their own chicken, freschly squeezed orange juice, fresh fruits, great cheese selection, etc. etc. If you go in the warmer season a nice garden in the backyard.... and you are just in front of one of the Beijnhof's entrances. Micheal is extremely welcoming and hospital
