The hotel was extremely central. THe breakfast was very good. Rooms spacious and clean. All required facilities present. The hotel staff were extremely helpful
Quiet large room very close to centre
Location Breakfast is too expensive (18 € !)
Location close to City is excelent. More pillows should be provided in rooms for the beds.
The rooms and location The staff who was working on sunday was very unfriendly
More noise from the corridor than usual
We had a brilliant weekend rate. The hotel is a business hotel and our twin room was perfect for our needs. The breakfast was full self-service and plenty full. Leuven is a lovely place and the hotel is very well situated in town. We had a room out to the back which was blissfully quiet. The receptionist on duty was not very welcoming - she seemed to class us by the rate we were paying and the rucksacks on our backs. Or she was just not enjoying her job.
Good value for money, 61 Euros for twin room with nice breakfast buffet. Parking garage below hotel. Excellent location in city centre. Twin rooms were comfortable, but slightly too small as there were two queen size beds.
The hotel is very central, all amenities are close by, the staff are very friendly and helpful
Nice furnishings and friendly people.
we found the staff courteous ,friendly and helpful. It was an excellent example of a small friendly and very comfortable hotel. One lack is the absence of a comfort tray ie tea/coffee tray in the room.
Room 106 comfortable though smaller than room we had on last visit. Bathroom possibly in need of upgrading. Bath tap a bit difficult to control and water emptying from bath very slow. Staff very friendly and helpful. See comment on bathroom.
Nice overall impression. Considerig that the hotel was build in an old Monestary, the rooms very not very well isolated, causing big differnece in temperateure in diffierent parts of the room.
Nice architecture, historical, convenient to city center.Good breakfast.
Hotel staff, garden Access to the parking
The lovely grounds, freindly staff and the bathrobes
Breakfast was excellent,staff attentive,homely atmosphere. Would like to have had tea and coffee making facilities in room.
Wonderful services, location, facilities and staff. No. I have stayed there several times and it is always a pleasure to go back.
It is nice. It is not so new.
the staff were so helpful and nice and the food was great in particular the breakfast.
Location Parking facilities
warmth and friendleyness of everthink breakfast was cold water in pots for tea warm coffie cold plates that were used for hot food were very cold taking heat from the food
location, helpful staff, comfortable room although pleased that wireless internet was available and reliable, it was quite expensive
The best for me was the price! My son who is 13 enjoyed the breakfast.The rooms are very clean and it is very quiet to sleep at night.
Cleanliness of hotel Getting to it from station, a bit of a trek with luggage and entrance not on main road but behind. But ok once u know where it is
breakfast buffet no pool
NIce that they have their own restaurant, so I can work late but don't have to look for food. No.
A clean, modern hotel. Very friendly staff that spoke English.
I had an early train and it took me 5 minutes to get from my room on the sixth floor to the track. you really can't beat that. the closest laundromat was about an 8 minute walk away, did not have soap for sale and of course is not on the web. the staff was very helpful in giving directions but i would not consider this an ideal hotel for someone who is planning to do laundry.
Perfect location, near train station and access to downtown All was so small bathroom shower bed, the first person who extended the welcome was clearly uncomfortable speaking in French and made every effort possible to make it clear. There was not AC so we had to tolerate a hot room during the day. The disposition of the beds made impossible to walk around the room.
Nice ambience, nice people at reception, the artie breakfastroom Reception looks kind of cheap at first glance Cleaning starts early and noisy (our room was next to 'Dienst'
I found the staff to be very helpful. Breakfast was outstanding!
Thye staff were very helpful and friendly in this conveniently situated hotel Noise in the street by late- night party-goers
The perfect location neear the centre of Leuven
Very attractive dining room, excellent location
Unusual split level was attractive. Would be nice if the third bed was on the lower level and the sofa upstairs to relax with TV. Everything was excellent
Comfortable room, friendly staff, central location. Excellent all-round
The staff was exceptionally helpful and very friendly. They provided helpful and accurate information on the local transportation schedules and always came to the desk to greet us when we came in. The breakfast (included) was quite good, with many selections to choose from, and presided over by a lovely and friendly manager.
The clean and spacy rooms, and the very polite staff
Very good position, hotel staff very helpful, good breakfast A disturbing smell from bathroom during the night. The rooms are not very well acoustic insulated, so you might hear what's happen with your neighbours.
Good restaurant. Easy access. Old rooms, old bathrooms. To be changed.
it was a very quiet time and therefore very peaceful which suited us very well
Very good breakfast fast checking in The hotel looked dated it needs a refresshing
Good hotel in a nice location, which was ideal for the place I was visiting.
Bathroom was tiny. ´No proper soap, shower gel and shampoo.
(+): free internet; free parking; friendly staff; (-): rather poorly equiped rooms; the radiator did not heat the whole room; rather modest breakfast
Excellent breakfast with fresh orange juice and anything to make it a English one. Rooms were able to be darkened and we checked out at 11h.10 without any problem (normally it's 10h.00)
My stay was excellent. The hotel was clean, the food excellent, and the staff eager to serve.
The breakfast was great. If that's a four star hotel they must be very small stars. The room was expensive and looked like it hadn't changed since the early 80s. The bathroom was older and not clean.
The gardens were nice and itwas very quiet and peaceful.Breakfast room had a wonderful "old world " feeling. Very close to Begginshof for walking and exploring on foot. for a 4 star hotel the room was a little small but not a problem!
The quiet and well maintained grounds No, by far the best hotel we have stayed in in Belgium
The very helpful reception staff who would do anything that you needed in a timely and professional manner. The breakfast was excellent. The room was slightly smaller than I expected, and not as clean as it should have been. Also, the rooms could do with some upgrading, e.g. mobile phones would interfere with the clock radio.
nice outside vieuw in breakfast room additional pay for sauna while i was in suite room, sometimes a litlle years 80 dated.
Please write at least 15 words
The staff were friendly and helpful. Also, most spoke very good English.
friendly staff no swimming pool, paid sauna
Very cosy and stylish at the same time. I love historical settings Could widen dinner menue
Spacious, nice breakfast, clean room. Staffs are friendly, speaks quite good English. Because it is in a (kind of) country side and face to small road, car noise in the night was a bit more than I estimated. Almost no bus is available (though it is mentioned in their website). No internet connection, even almost no mobile-phone network (my usb modem couldn't function).
Spacious room, kindness of the hosts, silence.
Hotel easy to find on outskirts of Lier. Plenty parking, good breakfast and restaurant. Lier is handy for Antwerp (by train) and for several spa (sauna) (by car).centres
i was passing though on a work project from france upto antwerp, must say this was one of the best hotels on the project and would also say that the steak we had was one of the best ever anywhere i had have .everything about this hotel was exellent and would recemend it and will also be visiting it again when passing leaving it and getting one not as good on my journey
Very accommodating and friendly staff, fantastic restaurant with excellent service, rooms clean and fresh and well maintained. I reccommend it. There has to be something but cannot really think of anything at moment.
The restaurant. Although the Booking.com confirmation showed Check-in from 15:00 though 'hotel' was actually closed at 15:00 but fortunately the owner saw us in the carpark. He said that check-in is now actually from 17:00.
Proximity to Lier town, pleasant reception, easy parking. Room assigned to us (75, 73 yrs) was situated under the attic. Interior of attic partly unfinished (work in progress ?) For this reason we feel price discount would have been justified.
The location was perfect for us. The staff were helpful and friendly and put themselves out to provide an early breakfast for us. Although the restaurant area was busy, the rooms were very quiet - you wouldn't have realised there were dozens of people eating close-by Rooms were a bit sparse but served a purpose. Provided one doesn't want to hang around for long in the room, they worked perfectly as a base.
The breakfast was very good, the room was tidy and clean. For a business trip with very short time spent in the room, this was more than ok.
very nice and welcomig staff. small rooms, but yet very well furnished there,s was an akward smell that sometimes came out of the toilet?
Staff was very friendly Restaurant was a bit too small. Some days there was not a table available for having breakfast...
very close and conveniently to the centre; all you need when staying for a short in the big city
Helpful and friendly staff. Efficient reception and rooms clean and well maintained
Location Expensive, pokey car park with very tight access
Friendly staff. Very nice room.
small room, bit congested. No fridge in the room. Breakfast should have been complimentary. Friendly, helpful staff. Budget accommodation for a single person.
cleanliness of hotel and central location noise transmitted from other rooms
Nice clean bathroom. small room and needs insulation (one can hear everything going on in other rooms and in the corridor) - otherwise good. Please note that the "Fair" comments above are not complaints, as I did not expect the Ibis to be a 5 star hotel.
Feeling at home ( 5th year we stayed at the IBIS ). Staff very friendly and helpful ( especially Joost ).
Very friendly receptionist helping at the desk after late arrival. Room was poor of furniture and athmosphere/ old sixties.
Value for money, pleassant staff
The location of the hotel meant that the centre of Leuven was within 10 minutes. Parking of the hire car was easy, as I could park almost in front of the main hotel entrance in a metered parking space (free overnight as long as the car is moved by 9am) The light switches in the room were strangely configured so that I could not turn off the bedside lights without going to the main switch by the door.
Helpful staff who are friendly and very honest.
Friendly & helpful staff. Several items in the room were missing or broken. Requested they be fixed but not taken care of because it was the weekend.
The bed was good and the staff was very helpful. I liked the breakfasts.
Excellent breakfast - friendly & helpful staff. Excellent location for town centre. Room heating controls confusing and without explanation.
Wired internet is comfortable, and small refrigerator is available, bus stop is nearby, and staff is helpful. A blanket was not so good, and people in 4th floor must use stair.
the hotel staff, the fact that is very near to Oude Markt and Begijnhof The street is a bit noisy
We loved your staff and your services. Your staff were friendly, knowledgable, and willing to help us get around the city. Your hosted breakfast was wonderful as well, and it added to the value of our room. We will recomend Hotel New Damshire to all of our friends when they visit Leuven. The only problems we had were the intense smell of smoke in our non-smoking room and the sound of construction in the morning. We realize that there is not much you can do about the latter, and we were very satisfied with our stay.
