This hotel is within easy walking distance of the railway and bus station and very close to the centre of this beautiful and interesting town. The staff are efficient, friendly, helpful and speak good English. I forgot my hairdryer and there wasn't one in the room but they are available free of charge. The breakfast is very good. If you are a light sleeper ask for a room at the back then you wont hear the night revellers going home or the road sweeper early in the morning. Traffic noise is not a problem. The hotel is above The Leffe Cafe which has stairs and a door directly into Reception. The food in the cafe is good and staff excellent.

The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast was excellent with a full range of both traditional fried items and continental breakfast items. My sister is a celiac and wheat free bread was provided every morning. When we needed a taxi, the staff responded immediately, even when they were very busy with others checking out. I forgot to print out the boarding passes for coming home and they were able to do this for us. I can't praise the staff highly enough and will stay here again when I visit Leuven. I will also be recommending the hotel to any of my friends who are visiting the area. We had a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
I've been staying at the Hotel La Royale for nearly 20 years now when I visit the city to attend academic events at KU Leuven. I always look forward to my stay at the Royale. It is an historic, quaint and comfortable Belgian hotel. The service and breakfasts are always excellent and my visit is pleasing.

The hotel is a few yards from the station and the old town, so is convenient for seeing central Leuven. We arrived by car and had not been told that there would be a hefty charge for parking in the underground public car park. There is no hotel concession, and nowhere to unload bags at the hotel. Our room was on the second floor with no lift, but hotel staff did help with the bags on arrival and departure. The hotel facilities are non-existent and the stairs to the rooms very steep with stained carpet. However, to make up for this, the room was newly refurbished with contemporary fittings and the bed was large and comfortable. The bathroom was large and the whole room was spotlessly clean. The breakfast included was the biggest surprise - self service but with a large variety of items to choose from, and all fresh and tasty. The service was very attentive. The hotel is over a restaurant on the station square so well placed for snacks and meals if you don't want to go far. It was quite noisy at night but you expect that for such a central location. So although we had to pay for parking, the generous breakfast made up for this irritation, and the room was excellent. I would recommend the hotel for a short stay and a convenient place for exploring Leuven by foot.
I stayed at this IBIS on business and enjoyed my stay. Clean room, although very small. Location is excellent, just a few minute walk from the square full of restaurants and pubs. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. It was interesting that you could get beer at the front desk on tap 24 hours/day.
