he Fourth hotel is located in a stunning gothic building situated next to Leuven’s spectacular city hall.

The rooms are spacious and nicely decorated. The bed is huge and really comfy. The bathroom is big too and is really “design” with a nice walk-in shower.

The location cannot be beat. Located in the heart of the Grote Market and just 250+ meters from the Oud Markt, if you’re looking for city centre, you cannot go wrong here. The Building itself is either 14th or 15th century and was once a guild headquarters. It is oozing with Flemish architectural details, and is a real treat. It’s also a short walk from the train station, but if you have lots of bags, there is bus that runs right to the main square.

The staff were delightful. We were greeted with warm smiles at the front desk and asked if we’d visited Leuven before. The lady working at the time gave us a city map and marked off some areas of interest, and offered to make us dinner reservations if needed.

Our room was located on the 2nd floor (accessible by lift, but note that once on the 2nd floor there is a short staircase to reach the part of the floor where most rooms are located) and had views of the main market square and cathedral. The room was very modern and fairly spacious. Large windows provided lots of light.

There was a large double bed, desk, ample wardrobe space, a kettle, and even an espresso machine (the ground fresh beans). The bath was of average size, but contained an enormous walk-in shower. The Mooi brand toiletries were amazing.

Breakfast was held in the hotel restaurant. Also very stylish, with plenty of comfortable seating. We paid 20 Euro per day per person.

A state of the art coffee machine and a complimentary bottle of water are part of the perks as well as Moooi shower gel and shampoo.

Leuven is our hometown and where our first Getaway project, residence Lipidus, saw the light of day. Residence Lipidus is situated in the Vital Decosterstraat, near the very center of the town. The residence has been thoroughly renovated and now counts 50 exquisite studio’s of the Deluxe, Superior and Executive type. There are 6 parking lots.

It’s only a short stroll from Residence Lipidus to the Grand Place, the Old Market and the train station. The Vital Decosterstraat gives easy access to the main exit roads leading to the business parks and major highways.

Firstly the apartment was great, spacious, well paid out and very conveniently located in the centre of Leuven.

The room was clean and fresh looking but the smell of smoke detracted from the cleanliness. The bathroom was spacious, with a huge shower that was very nice. Having cooking facilities helped greatly especially with children meaning no fuss with eating out, and the bed set up was comfortable with the fold out double sofa bed providing a comfortable night sleep.

As mentioned great location just off the shopping streets and a short walk to the town square and station. Restaurants and bar are close by if wanted.

I will definitely be looking out for getaway studios on future city breaks and have already considered rebooking here if we decide to visit the Christmas markets again.

The place is just in a side street of the shopping street and 5 min walk from the city hall. Walk 2 min and you are at the library square. We had the two bedroom and kitchenette, which was efficient for cooking a few days.

All utensils, pots, glasses etc was all sufficient. No impressive view from any of the floors. The front personnel as well as the cleaning girls, were very friendly and helpful.

There are number Martin’s hotels in Belgium all a great place to base yourself while travelling or working. I was fortunate on both my summer and last weekend to book room 5 at the Klooster a wonderful 4 modern poster bedded room tastefully decorated with a lovely view inside the old covenant conversion.

The bar is relaxed and generally quite nice for a Christmas drink off the main bar locations in Leuven but 5mins from the old town centre Staff friendly, great breakfast Always enjoyed staying here!

This hotel is highly recommended by trip advisor fans for a very good reason! It is really perfect.
I was there at Christmas and we had a small room for under 120 euros. It was modern and had a nice cotton duvet and quality bed linens and pillows. The bathroom is amazing. It is large with a walk in shower that has several shower heads. The canal was just outside our window and also a very lovely old church. The room was extremely quiet. The breakfast, 20 euros , is pricey but the selection is wonderful. It includes a selection of meats, cheeses, pastries, eggs, cereal,and fruit and yogurt.

We were in Leuven in a very cold rainy week, and the bar was a nice escape with a huge fireplace and comfy chairs. Reception was helpful and efficient. Location is just 5 minutes from the beautiful town center. No need for a car, just a short cobblestone walk.

I must say that the Christmas time in Leuven is magical on its own but this hotel made us lose the reality.

The place is a former church cloister rebuilt into a hotel. It is situated in a very quiet area just 5 minutes walk from the main city square with cobbled streets around.

Along with a beautiful interior, very helpful and polite staff and a convenient location of the hotel which is just 30 minutes drive away from Brussels, makes it a perfect stay if you are up for a relaxing time with your loved ones.
