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,...

Stayed 2 nights and left at noon for 3 hrs. After I came back and I changed at 3.15 pm room service knocked and I said I'll leave in 10 min which I did. I even met her in the hall and said that I'm gone now. Unfortunetly, I had to find my room unclean and untouched when I returned...

Good hotel with excellent people. It was clean and the rooms are very nice. The breakfast was fantastic and I will certainly recommand this hotel to my friends. It's in the middle of Leuven and I really did enjoy my stay.

We got a free upgrade to the suite, which we absolutely loved: great room, great design, completely silent. And we were helped by an amazing receptionist in the morning who even gave us a little history on the building when we asked him. We'll be back!

The hotel is located in the heart of the city center. 2 days before our arrival we received instructions on how to reach the hotel by car (because you need to drive through a pedestrian area), which was really appreciated and customer friendly. The hotel itself is decent, our room was what to expect from a 4-star hotel. We got...

I think hotel is good and well located, close to the streets with restaurants and shops. The only bad thing was very slow free WiFi, barely working (maybe I had bad luck but "free package" was rated to 256kbs and I am not sure that I was getting even that, depending on the tome of the day it took 5-15...

Dear Robert, Thank you for your nice feedback about your stay. We offer the normal speed for free, which is 256 kbs. In case a huge procent of the guests are surfing at the same time, it means that the piece you're normally getting, will be smaller, therefor I suppose it was not working that great.
