Positive Reviews

City center location.

The pentahotel Leuven is siyuated in the city centre. You can walk to many of the tourist attractions and sites from the hotel. There are a number of restaurants and supermarkets right around the hotel. You also have easy access to public transportation.

Comfortable rooms.

The guest rooms at this hotel are very comfortable. The decor and furniture is modern and still very functional. The beds are wide and very comfortable. The cleaning staff clean the rooms and bathrooms to a very high standard.

24-hour services.

The hotel bar is open 24-hours per day, seven days a wek. The bar staff are very friendly and there are always drinks and snacks available. The reception is also open 24 hours a day and the staff are happy to help you with anything you at any time of the day.

Negative Reviews

Poor Wi-Fi.

Guests have reported that the free Wi-Fi at this hotel is unusable. The connection is very slow and the Wi-Fi signal is often not available. The hotel charges an expensive rate to use the faster Wi-Fi connection, which many feel is unacceptable.

Noisy street.

The street that the pentahotel Leuven is located on is quite noisy. You can hear the sounds of the pedestrians and motor vehicles all through the night. The windows and walls need to be sound proofed as it some guests find it difficult to sleep.

Expensive breakfast.

The breakfast each morning is not included in your room rate and so you will have to fork out quite a lot of money if you wish to have your breakfast at this hotel. The breakfast hours are also very strict which is not convenient for some guests, especially over the weekends.
