Reviewed yesterday NEW

nice hotel, but you have to be prepared to be lost in the centre of the city if you try to reach the destination by car. My room was at the first flour, so I have strong feeling that student party at the street was in my room.

Make sure you contact the hotel before travelling to get driving instructions. The center of Leuven is horrible to drive with a car. GPS will NOT help! Equipped with two GPSes it took me two hours to reach the hotel :( Hotel is located in pedestrian area with only ONE way to reach by car. After arrival it is a...

We stayed for two nights in early April. Despite detailed instructions having been received from the hotel, access still proved a little tricky but, once there, the location proved to be superb. Our second floor room was both clean and spacious with a comfortable Superking bed. Bedroom fittings were a little quirky but everything worked and there were plenty of...

-Location in Leuven is not reachable anymore, was here 2 years ago, then it was doable. Now the city has changed to a lot of one way streets making it impossible to reach the location in a direct way. -Internet connection should be included, the free version is non functional so slow, but even the payed version can be at...

Very good hotel and located perfectly in the centre of Leuven. Small room but with a fantastic bed and a big rain shower in the bathroom . Very friendly personnel. The drinks in the bar and the breakfast is quite expensive.

Too hot everywhere and not enough friendlyness staff seem to be not really all that interested lunch and diner are 15€ but breakfast is 18€? The grneral areas are 25 celcius and way too hot. Location is good in the center. Parking and traffic is a massive challenge in Leuven but they have a parking. Overall i would say ok...

This is a great place to stay--beds are comfortable, it's a good location, and having an in-house bar/restaurant is very convenient. Only cons are that there is a constant stream of club music in the lobby/bar that makes you feel like you've woken up in--well, a club. And while that might be appealing to 20 year olds, the rest of...

I found this quite an expensive hotel (in terms of price / quality), although located close to the place I needed to be. What I didn't like: My first impression was it was quite a 'dark' hotel, not too much light in the parking garage / lobby / bar and it didn't smell fresh. Small elevators. Poor / slow Wifi...

Character of hotel is different but the noise from the street level (students) was constant throughout the night. I would only recommend staying here is a room not facing the street is available and I would always ask for one next time.

This place should get 6 stars for value- I think we payed about €80 for a Saturday night, and were pleasantly surprised with lots of little extras and an AMAZING breakfast (including Prosecco... hmm... yes please!). Swish toiletries, movies on demand... all part of the deal. Pentahotel is stylish and comfortable, and rooms are surprisingly big for a city hotel,...
