The Ibis Budget hotel is a clean hotel at a decent price. I stayed in one of the "3-person" rooms for a week while in Leuven. The room was great for staying alone, but if 3 people actually stayed in this room it would be very close quarters. You would also want to be quite familiar with each other as...

This Ibis was the best of the three Ibis I stayed in my trip to Belgium: well located, friendly and helpful staff. The only thing they didn't provide me with was a hair dryer because it had been taken away by another passenger. The room (on the 7th floor) had an excellent view of Leuven. Few minutes walk from the...

It's clean , It's great value (especially if 2 or 3 sharing) , and location next to central train station of Leuven makes the Ibis Budget a really good choice. I recently had a 4 night stay and found the staff helpful and the rooms , although quite basic , spotlessly clean. If you're looking for 4 star facilities it's...

I arrived at Ibis at 00:15 on a Sunday night to be told that they had cancelled my reservation because my credit card was invalid, and also that they were fully booked and had no more rooms available. They said that they had notified the website through which I'd reserved ("the website") who should have notified me, and that they...

We are really sorry that our service and performance did not meet your expectations. Nevertheless, when the hotel is fully booked and in case of very late arrival, the reception is checking the credit cards in order to make sure that eventually no show charges can be charded on the given cards. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused by...

Very good central simple place. Room basic but extremelly clean. Very nice and efficient staff. The breakfast room is a bit small for the overall capacity of the place but very well run. Internet is free and good reception. Close to the train station, about 13 min irde from the airport of Brussels. The city itself is amazing, nice student...

You pretty much know what you are getting when you book an Ibis so know not to expect a 5 star hotel. This hotel is fairly new (it was not to be seen on Google Street view) and is located to the back of the train station. If arriving by train and not carrying a heavy bag take the "Kessel-Lo"...

Obviously a new hotel, everything was very clean and bright. Reception staff were very helpful. The room was functional but at such a low cost compared to other hotels, it was great value for money. The station is alongside so a good location for anyone needing to visit Brussels or the Airport, but there was no noise from the trains....

Nice compromise between a hotel and a hostel. Very good value for money. Clean. Great location - right next to train station, therefore, just a short walk to city centre, handy for travelling to Brussels. Free wifi. I would stay again.

I had a very pleasant stay I stayed here for 1 week, Hotel is next to train station so it was ideal for us and not noisy at all. Staff were pleasant and hotel room was clean and beds comfy so overall it was a nice hotel and not very expensive.

Reviewed 26 March 2013

We booked a room in this hotel through a website on which the hotel claimed they had soundproof rooms. This was essential to us as the hotel is located near the train station. However, these soundproof rooms turned out to be a complete joke. We heard each and every train passing by, until late at night and starting again first...

I'm really sorry that your stay wasn't up to your expectations. Nevertheless I'm surprised about your feedback concerning the noice, because I never had complaints about that matter before. Please do not hesitate to give me the roomnumber you stayed in, so I can investigate the matter accordingly. Best regards, Michèle Deprez - General Manager.
