I had the most enjoyable morning shits

A bit disappointing

Customer review rating 2.0/5

Anonymous Business - 22/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Room was generally clean but a bit run down (cracks in walls, minor damage on some doors/furniture). Two silverfish were seen on the floor at night (probably due to the cracks in the wall). Did not feel good that wearing a mask was not required (and also not worn by staff). I realise countries have different regulations regarding corona restrictions but for international guests who come from countries where mask-wearing is a general requirement, this did feel strange and unsafe (especially at breakfast when so many people are moving around the buffet). The parking was also very expensive - it would be nice to mention this on the website directly and not only mention that there is an extra charge. The 20 euros for overnight parking at the location basically means that the overall cost for the stay is not really worth it, since the overall cost is no longer "budget".

Dear Christopher, Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the ibis budget Leuven Centrum. I am sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations; please allow me to express my sincerest apologies. Since the 1st of October, in Flemish Belgium it is not an obligation any more to wear a mask in the public area , restaurants , shops,...and this is mostly very appreciated by our guests. It's up to the choice of our guests to decide if they are wearing it or not and we have nothing to decide about it. We nevertheless understand that you feel unsafe with it. We had the same feeling in the beginning. We also regret and fully understand your reaction about the parking price. Nevertheless in the most cities, public parkings are really expensive in order to encourage people to travel by public transport. Hopefully we will have the opportunity to welcome you again in better circumstances. Beste regards, Michèle Deprez - General Manager

Conveniently located near the train station In Leuven. Room was clean and relatively comfortable. Couldn’t turn off heater so room was too warm.

Very central to the city and right at train station

Rooms are very small, Soap gives skin ratches. No place to hang cloths in the room . Cleaning services was not very regular. It’s the smallest room I have slept in. Plastic chairs. Zero percent confort.

Room clean and adequate. Breakfasts very good. Hotel staff very pleasant and helpful. Would have liked an extra pillow in room. Disappointed that BBC channels not available in room. On previous stays these had been available.

wouterverbelen Friends getaway - 25/09/2019 TripAdvisor review

the rooms were ok and clean, except for some aiki noodles that were left behind. the bed was good, but the pillows were to small to have a confortable sleep. I've been to other Ibis budget who were better equiped on the pillows.

Dear Wouterverbelen, Thank you for reviewing your stay. We are glad our comfy quality beds were to your satisfaction, perfect for a good night's sleep which we believe is high on the priority list of our guests. We were sorry to hear that you did not enjoy our pillows and would like to inform, that extra pillows are available at reception and regret that you had not made us aware during your stay. We hope to see you again for an improved experience. Kind regards, Mrs Michèle DEPREZ, Hotel Manager

The Ibis Budget Leuven is an excellent place to stay. It is adequately comfortable and functional, just what you expect from a budget hotel. However, the staff are excellent, friendly and proffessional.

MarcoAlff Family - 13/08/2019 TripAdvisor review

We really enjoyed staying at this property. Really closed to Leuven downtown, just a few steps from main trains. Good breakfast and close to Fritur restaurant and supermarkets. I'll stay here if needed again and recommend the hotel.

Very good

AdrianaI1 Couples - 27/11/2018 TripAdvisor review

Comfy, clean, and very quiet and bright room (number 519). The only parking available (train station) is quite expensive. A discount for the hotel's guests should be considered.We did not have break-fast.

Good value

racheln978 Couples - 12/07/2018 TripAdvisor review

Great central location, basic clean and perfectly acceptable. Breakfast is also basic but fresh and adequate. Air conditioning would have been a bonus in the hot weather. More pillows needed as they are very thin!

Stay was brilliant. Staff were very helpful and insightful on what to do in Leuven. Booked last minute and was able to turn up no more than 3 hours later. We would defiantly stay at Ibis Budget Leuven.

Per E Business - 16/10/2017 TripAdvisor review

Cheap budget hotel but has what you need, good bed, a small desk and good wifi. Basic breakfast. Perfect location just next to the train station and well worth its price, as long as you pay budget prices.

Henry_Taylor_Wwa Business - 16/10/2017 TripAdvisor review

Simple budget hotel. Tidy & quiet enough. Close to the railway station and not far, in fact, to the city centre. Don't expect too much. Good enough just for a short stay in Leuven. Also close to Brussels Airport - only 15 minutes by train.

Room/Service as expected from Ibis Budget but marred by train noise and non-budget price

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

UKDjh Family - 11/09/2017 TripAdvisor review

Conveniently located for easy access to Leuven centre on foot. Parking is problematic with nowhere to stop to load/offload. Hotel is almost on top of the train station and sound proofing is not great - so you get to hear not only the train movements but even the station announcements! Room is basic as expected, but comfortable. Good continental breakfast buffet. Unless you need to be in the centre of Leuven, you may be better off at the full service Ibis Leuven-Heverlee, about 3 miles away which is much more comfortable and has free parking.

Perfect Accommodation for Rock Werchter

Johnphodge Couples - 06/07/2017 TripAdvisor review

Ibis Budget Hotel Leuven is adjacent to the Railway Station and the embarkation point for the buses to the festival. It is always clean and well kept and the staff are always friendly and helpful. The rooms are basic but just perfect for a place to put your head at the end of a heavy festival day.

Dear John, We thank you for taking the time to write your review. We thank you for the positive feedback. We hope to see you again in our hotel. Kind regards, Niels Quetin
