We have stayed at the hotel before but in the annex - which is also good. But the stay at the hotel, which has a restaurant attached, is better as the breakfast is served there. The breakfast is very good and plenty of it. We are vegetarians but there was still a good choice for us. The reason I have given 4 rather than 5, is the lack of coffee and tea in the rooms and the bath towels being small and rough. We were in the delux room - and everything else was good so the lack of tea etc I think is an annoying oversight. We walked into Leuven centre every day ( about 25 mins) but there is a bus also. A taxi from the train station to the hotel cost 20 euros.

The following is a review of the Boardhousing Aparthotel which is in a separate building, a short walk away form the main Boardhouse Hotel. Although the building is old, the interior is up to date and properly insulated even if you might hear some street noise especially on market weekends. The room had a strange polygonal shape and a completely useless sanded glass bathroom door while the bathtub would leak and the A/C did not seem to be working except for just circulating air. That's what you get for the lower(ish) prices. To get a discounted nightly price for staying for 7 nights, I booked the room directly with them although they initially did not make any reservation as they considered that a room with a kitchenette would have been more suitable for a family with tho infants and they did not have one available. I insisted on having a basic room and got it but was also informed that there would be "no daily cleaning of the room" which was basically no cleaning at all during the entire stay (including taking out the trash). Almost every time I went by the reception there was nobody there (I just wanted to know what to do with the trash) but on the upside I did get to use the parking next to the restaurant. All in all, I would go back there again but not if I can find something better as even after a couple of months, I'm still in a love-hate relationship with the place.

What's not to like? A quaint hotel nestled in a quiet bedroom community just a short bike ride away from Leuven's historic downtown. The annex (Boardhousing*) exits onto the Sunday market square, so during the spring and summer you can self-cater literally from your doorstep. Saturday evening / early Sunday morning can be a bit noisy, however. Fantastic breakfast buffet at a very reasonable price (you can even negotiate this if you call directly). The owners are super friendly and accommodating. The rooms are large and the entire space is clean and fresh. The free rental bikes make a trip to the city center a breeze. Just bring your own bicycle lights or pay €5 if you plan to ride after dark. If you wish to stay at the main hotel, make certain you have a room at Boardhouse...not the annex which is a 3 minute walk toward the market square. Again this place is a great value and highly recommended!
