            The staff was horrible, unfriendly and rude. We have asked for 2 extra pillows and the receptionist was so amazed that someone might ever need two extra pillows that it made us feel like we are the weird. At one night after a long day, retiring to the hotel we went to the coffee table to get some water and the receptionist, again the same horrible guy, literally ran after us and made sure we are aware that the coffee and tea are for the conferences alone and not for the guests. I would expect to get breakfast for a price of 600 euros for 4 nights, or at the least a cup of coffee. I would not recommend staying the the leuven novovtel hotel for anyone who doesn't look to being treated like he's being given a favor of staying there and the money he paying is stones. There are finer hotel in leuven with much better service, Which are cheaper and provide nicer staff and feeling.

            New, reasonably pleasant. Good room facilities

            Terrible experience checking in, despite not being busy had to wait 20 minutes. Also had to pay retainer on card of 150 Euros for some reason, not exactly trusting.

          • Couple
            9.6

            Had a reasonable gym and staff were very helpful and willing to assist. Nicely located for the bus station and train station. Small walk to the centre of the city and cafes.

          • Older travelers
            5.8

            Very small garage and no parking near by, unless you don't mind paying a fortune.

          • Single
            5.4

            Convenient location (near to train station), no long queues for check-in or check-out.

            Poor service from staff particularly at the bar/restaurant area. Kept waiting for a long time, ignored when we arrived etc. Price of rooms seemed very high.

            The space room specially for a Baby, the service and the good breakfast

            The staff was very friendly.

            It was very hot and when the window opens it's too much noise.

            Very good Hotel,Novotel is best quality for a good budget.

            Breakfast very good ,but to expensif .

          • Single
            7.4

            Staff were very helpful.

            The restaurant only seems to serve ready meals/frozen pizzas. I paid €12.50 for a Dr Oetker pizza - not great. Hotel is fine if a little far from the centre - especially if raining.

          • Older travelers
            6.4

            Comfortable and clean room.

            Breakfast rather poor quality: fried mushrooms almost gone. For the price of 20 Euro rather poor selection. We didn'td take any breakfast during our second stay!

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            Many years since I've stayed in a Novotel and I was very pleasently surprised by the quality of the place. The bedroom was immaculate, and the breakfasts fantastic. What really made the stay very enjoyable though was the staff. From the beginning at reception, to the breakfast room and to the young knowledgable barman, the staff were excellent. My guess is that the Novotel brand majors on staff training and awareness. Their approach to the customer really puts some of the so called five star hotels to shame.

            Takes about 20 mins to walk to the centre of Leuven but I was aware of this in advance and in truth if I hadn't dawdled I could have done it in 15. Equally I could have called a cab!

          • Single
            5.8

            The hotel is not close to the center of Leuven, eventhough its name says so. It is a good half an hour to 40 mins walk from the city center.

          • Single
            8.2

            On the outskirts of the town centre this hotel is typical of Novotel with consistently good service, room size, comfort and cleanliness, 3*+ quality.

            Limited street parking, a good 15 minute walk into town and small overpriced restaurant. As usual the breakfast and hotel parking are prohibitively priced.

          • Couple
            9.6

            I don't like the huge pillows they have, it wasn't really comfortable for my head

          • Single
            5.0

            Novotel standard, good size room, parking on site (underground).

            The hotel is not central at all, the name is misleading. Walking to the city centre where all the restaurants are would take 20-25 min, quite a stroll. Forget it in poor weather, pretty gloomy by night. So definitely not what it says on the tin...
