The room was modern and very well fitted, extremely clean and well presented. Provided with coffee machine, microwave, large flat screen tv, air conditioning, lift and on site parking. Situation ideal for our transit purposes - close to Autoroute and easy to find. Restaurant closed (annual holiday)and breakfast only available in room (actually not required and coffee machine in room so no problem!) No outlook from the windows (Velux.)
really nice room and the bed was big and confortable. Very nice stay
Nothing Having arrived around 8pm, l was very disappointed that no food was made available or indeed offered. l was also disappointed that the toilet & bathroom were located outwith the bedroom located in an outside corridor.Definetely not value for money. On a positive note, room & bedlinen very clean.
Can't beat the location if you need an early flight the next day.... This is ripoff pricing. First of all, the website says rooms from E139. But don't try to find a room at that price, E209 is what you pay. Without internet. Without Parking. Without breakfast. Even Tokyo and Paris are cheaper.
Position of electric outlets in rooms too far from bed
Extremely very well situated across from Brussels airport entrance. It's the prime dpot to spend the last night before you leave. The good is good. Good breakfast. It's on the more expensive side but the location is what makes this property so convenient. There is a good train connection at the airport to get to the center of Brussels Antwerp Gent of Oostende. Its of course well understandable to the expensive side. Breakfast $25. But it's location makes you accept.
Can walk across street to airport. Bar area was short staffed so see I e was dry slow, but to their credit, the bar manage really was concerned. Plus their computer system was down
Very convenient for catching early morning flight The hotel was under renovation - the only restaurant operating was very crowded and busy
Excellent location I had a very badly soundproofed room (next to the lift). Outrageous for a room of that price.
Convenient to airport - just walk across the street.
Perfect. Just in front of the departure hall. The best place where to stay if you depart early in the morning.
Perfect location, nice and well spoken staff. Wonderful mattrass
40 steps to Brussels international airport
Location is perfect. Walk to check in at airport. Restaurant costly and service in restaurant slow.
It was conviently located for our needs. My wife and I needed to take a flight early the next morning and, while we aren't rich, we enjoyed our stay for the night. We were ready to take the flight. Leaving. It was sooooo good. It is unfortunate in this survey that there wasn't a choice "very good" because the item that we checked as good was very good, yet not excellent.
Quiet large room very close to centre
The hotel is very central, all amenities are close by, the staff are very friendly and helpful
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 rooms and location The staff who was working on sunday was very unfriendly
Location close to City is excelent. More pillows should be provided in rooms for the beds.
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.
The hotel was extremely central. THe breakfast was very good. Rooms spacious and clean. All required facilities present. The hotel staff were extremely helpful
Close proximity to the university (central campus), shopping, restaurants without need for a car. The noise from the plaza area in front of the hotel--lasted all through the night and was quite loud at times.
Location Breakfast is too expensive (18 € !)
Breakfast was excellent,staff attentive,homely atmosphere. Would like to have had tea and coffee making facilities in room.
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.
Nice furnishings and friendly people.
The lovely grounds, freindly staff and the bathrobes
Wonderful services, location, facilities and staff. No. I have stayed there several times and it is always a pleasure to go back.
Nice architecture, historical, convenient to city center.Good breakfast.
Hotel staff, garden Access to the parking
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.
cleanness and hotels facilities (hotel shuttle on call during the night was very useful)
comfort and proximity to airport
Close to airport
Close to the ariport Room not clean (especially toilets and floor) - Very noisy : I could hear the other client calling his wife thru the wall, and all the noise coming from the corridor
The hotel is close to the airport & the shuttle service was good. The room was good. Arrangement with credit card was confusing - as I had pre-paid I had to come back to reception to register my CC to pay for restaurant. The service in the restaurant was very slow.
The ease of transportation to and from the airport and the location.
The location to Budget car rental and the airport. The internet charge was ridiculous, and the internet service unacceptable, possibly due to spyware used by the service. When you charge for internet access, it should not include breaches in privacy. This alone will cause me to never stay at this hotel or any other hotel in the chain again.
The roomservice menu is very poor, food in general is not of high quality. I had to drink my wine from a plastic glass!
Everything was perfect.
Efficient transfer to the airport Cleanliness, in particular the carpets in the rooms. In urgent need of change.
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
NIce that they have their own restaurant, so I can work late but don't have to look for food. No.
location, helpful staff, comfortable room although pleased that wireless internet was available and reliable, it was quite expensive
breakfast buffet no pool
Location Parking facilities
the staff were so helpful and nice and the food was great in particular the breakfast.
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.
A clean, modern hotel. Very friendly staff that spoke English.
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
It is nice. It is not so new.
Very close to the airport, free shuttle, clean, modern, nice restaurant and bar. Train station is near by . Hotel is located in the middle of business park.
Close to airport especially if you have an early flight out of Brussels. Close to city centre too - station 5 minutes walk away. Time to city centre about 15 minutes. Taxi provided at hotel expense from airport to hotel during the day. Very efficient service. We left hotel at 5am. We had to take a taxi. Hotel pays for taxi after 6am.
Location and value Airport shuttle not 7/24
I called reception and waited for an unnecessarily long time before an irritated and unfriendly employee answered me. I asked for some utensils and he said "didn't room service give you this?" And I responded "This is not room service related", as I wanted utensils to eat with take away food. His irritation came through his voice while he said "fine." He hung up on me before I could say thank you. After this short but unfriendly exchange with reception, I never got my utensils! I never called back to followup . It wasn't worth the hassle and especially the rudeness. I improvised by using their wooden coffee stick as utensils instead. It wasn't easy to use but did the job with the scooping motion. I've never experienced such distasteful rudeness from hotel staff before until now. It really put a sour ending to my visit to Brussels. It only takes one uncalled for encounter to leave a bad immpression. Needless to say I will not be coming back to this hotel. And forewarning for anyone asking for utensils; good luck with that!
A beautiful, comfortable, well staffed hotel. It was perfect for my 13 hour layover at Brussels Airport. Twenty One Euro for breakfast is outrageous. I ate about two eggs, two slices of bacon, a slice of toast and coffee. I can not eat Twenty One Euro of breakfast. It would have been nice if the restaurant was open for breakfast.
Facilities, staff, restaurant and overall upkeep all excellent and consistent with 4-star designation. Airport shuttle was active/available (contrary to older reviews). Good location for airport access. Gated parking was 15 E on-site and was very convenient. Air conditioning was poor and room remained rather warm (sign on thermostat noted that it was an eco-friendly system so this may not be considered a major issue by some), only 1 full size towel for double room posed an inconvenience. Location very good for airport access but otherwise nondescript.
The proximity to Brussel National Airport and teh free Airport Drop and Pick ups are the most salient points of thsi Hotel. No
Great hotel close to the airport. 30-40 Euro taxi ride to town. Staff is great in the bar area. Nice service and food is well done. Carpets not the best of shape. Could be cleaned. Taxi service is a bit slow. If you need to be somewhere at a certain time, I would book the taxi the night before.
Access from motorway - very easy to find. Comfortable beds. Good value for money. Secure parking. Good breakfast. Minor point but would have liked extra pillows. If I had asked I am sure they would have provided these.
Food was excellent; staff was efficient and courteous One complaint: I extended my stay by a day and a half while waiting on a flight. When I called to extend the stay, the reception did not tell me the rate would be changing from 99e to 150e. This is a big difference and took me by surprise when I checked out. Not sure why the rate increased during a weekday but nevertheless I was not informed. I did not like this.
The room was very nice and roomy, the bathroom was modern, large and well equipped The wake up call system did not work and we nearly missed our flight
The free shuttle service from the airport to the hotel and back.
Room appointed nicely and comfortable for overnight stay. Check in efficient and pleasant. Was not aware to ask for a 'first floor' room. They did not have an available and although many rooms are on the first floor, our room was accessbile only by stairs. We were 2 mature couples who had stayed in Europe for family event and touring, so one of our pieces was especially awkward.
Excellent convenience to the airport; clean, modern, well-appointed rooms; very close to the train station too; great facilities and helpful staff. The restaurant is of decent quality, but (not surprisingly) overpriced.
The room was extremely clean and comfortable.
Free airport shuttle service, proximity to airport was good but not so close that plane noise is a problem. Staff helpful and room a good size and nicely set up.
The desk clerks were very helpful. The rooms were great, and the layout of the hotel was great. No
I chose this hotel for two reasons: 1- the location is so close from the airport and you don't have to pass through the traffic jam to Zaventem. So, i recommend it if you have an early morning flight. 2. Swimming pool, which was closed as most of the hotels do now adays. The reception was a disaster, that everybody did a check in had to fight with the receptionist, who was appearantly not satisfied with her work. My check in passed quietly (except paying the city tax which was for the first time not includedin the price)but after a while she called me from the reception an said some info were missing from my credit card, then she said you have to pay the city tax!! Told her i already did with your collegue. She said NOO you didn't pay! Told her call ur collegue. She called him, spoke in dutch, then said he did not tell me( without saying SORRY). Every body who was working there, whether in the restaurant, reception or out side, was absolutly not friendly and angry. Do not recommend it and will never be there. The receptionist The money value Swimming pool closed. Hammam closed ( why it's a resorts then?!)
the room service was fabulous
perfect room and bad jaquzzi,outdoor swimming pool are broken ,no breakfast .No free wi-fi in a room
nice hotel, good facilities, near the airport, staff is very nice and helping
location, big room, nice design
Very nice and helpful staff in reception, good location for those who are travelling around the country, just off the motorway The double bed was too small for two persons
the food (breakfast and lunch) is very poor but very expensive. breakfast
nice outside vieuw in breakfast room additional pay for sauna while i was in suite room, sometimes a litlle years 80 dated.
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.
The quiet and well maintained grounds No, by far the best hotel we have stayed in in Belgium
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 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.
friendly staff no swimming pool, paid sauna
The staff were friendly and helpful. Also, most spoke very good English.
My stay was excellent. The hotel was clean, the food excellent, and the staff eager to serve.
Very cosy and stylish at the same time. I love historical settings Could widen dinner menue
Please write at least 15 words
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 perfect location neear the centre of Leuven
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!
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
The clean and spacy rooms, and the very polite staff
Thye staff were very helpful and friendly in this conveniently situated hotel Noise in the street by late- night party-goers
Very attractive dining room, excellent location
Comfortable room, friendly staff, central location. Excellent all-round
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.
Romantic atmosphere in the suite (nr. 8), very spacious, bathroom in the room. No fridge in the suite, room was cold when we first came in.
Very nice environment for both leisure and business, next to Kasteelpark Arenberg and suitable for both romantic strolls and work at the university across the street. Good brasserie in Belgian style (that's a plus). Very large room, very high (under old wooden roof construction). Good airco -- which is needed. Ideal weekend getaway, perfect for efficient business, a combination rarely found. The bathroom is built inside the room, behind a wall. Very nice, but it could use a direct light source.
A beautiful hotel about 5 minutes taxi ride out of Leuven City centre (normally between €10-€15 a journey but that was for a 6 seater taxi). The building & rooms were stunning with lovely red brick & exposed beams. The breakfast was delicious with a good choice (fruit salad, yogurt, bread, cheese, meats, cerial, eggs & bacon) we also ate in the hotel restaurant one evening which was really good too, although quite expensive. There was 6 of us in our group (3 couples) & we all said that we would definitely stay at The Lodge again & recommend it to friends & family.
Lovely atmospheric conversion of old buildings enclosing a courtyard. Nice terrace outside the restaurant for drinks or meals in good weather Our suite room had a window at floor height with no lock which our toddler could easily open leading to a potential sheer drop of several metres. We had to be extremely vigilant with her. The hotel and room were beautifully appointed with one exception: the television was the smallest, cheapest box money can buy. It was totally out of keeping
very good hotel, beautifull location, friendly people
The fashinating location, the large space and the atmosphere in the room. The gastronomy.
Interesting interior design of room, nice and quiet Bathroom in bedroom, OK as idea but handshower in bath, not possible to hang up, definitely very inconvenient. Same with lack of space to put soap or shampoo near bath. Towels can only be hung from hooks, no racks to let them dry properly.
Sheltered, quiet, nice neighborhood, friendly stuff Smell in the room, unusual architecture in the room
Nicely converted building on the outskirts of Leuven, within the university campus. Busy and lively restaurant. Nothing
good location, very quiet, beautifull hotel, breakfast included
Room - nice modern decor Room location (next to restaurant and public restroom) Wooden blinds do not completely cover doors and block light 'Cooked' breakfast was not - just cheese and cold meat
atmosphere noises (room 1)
Modern and stylish room. The pillows were much too small!
the restaurant was superb, and good value. the rooms were stylish and spacious. wifi worked well and was included in price. would go back. the rooms were poorly equipped, no hairdryer, iron, sewing kit etc
Hotel was excellent reasonably priced beautiful rooms friendly staff ,good location No facility to get tea or coffee in the hotel ?
No wireless internet available in the room, while stated access avialable, not very pleasent if travelling for business
The big bathroom with the jacuzzi was great! We did not sleep in the hotel, but in the seperate building a few streets further. On sundaymorning there was a market - we did not hear any noise at all, windows are well isolated. And it was such a lovely market with yummy belgian pastries!
A good small hotel, well located and with a superb restaurant next door- The Voltaire No
Room was very comfortable Breakfast was very good When entering the hotel, there is a little fish odor.
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.
The building its self was neat. Everything else to horrible! Yes, hidden fee's lack of communication from staff.
Aesthetically, the common spaces were lovely. The food and beer were reasonably priced at the restaurant, and the minibar prices were fair. The staff was very unfriendly and unhelpful. To use the spa you have to pay an additional 13 Euro per person.
the hotel staff, the fact that is very near to Oude Markt and Begijnhof The street is a bit noisy
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.
Very friendly receptionist helping at the desk after late arrival. Room was poor of furniture and athmosphere/ old sixties.
Helpful staff who are friendly and very honest.
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.
Excellent breakfast - friendly & helpful staff. Excellent location for town centre. Room heating controls confusing and without explanation.
The bed was good and the staff was very helpful. I liked the breakfasts.
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.
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.
