Leuven wasn’t always the most accommodating city for hip backpackers to spend the night, but everything changed in 2014 with the launch of Cube Hostel. The reception desk (built on a bunch of quaint old suitcases) and lounge area lend the place a cozy vintage feel with eclectic flea market finds, from fold-up cinema chairs to colorful couches.

Theater Hotel

Right across from the city’s official concert hall and a minute’s walk from Museum M, the Theater Hotel is ideally located for those looking to get cultural on their Leuven trip. Add to that the free breakfast in a spacious and light dining hall and we have ourselves a winner.

Pentahotel

Part of a European network of hotels, Leuven’s edition stays true to the Penta formula: an alluring blend of industrial cool and chic, comfortable interiors makes for a very pleasurable stay for any city trip.

    For anyone hoping to truly blend in and shed the tourist vibe, Getaway is probably your best bet. These fully equipped studios stray away from the traditional hotel concept to include kitchenettes, walk-in dressing closets and everything else you need to feel like Leuven is your actual home city for however long you wish, whether that’s a single night or an entire month.

    The Lodge

    Though not in the center of Leuven, The Lodge’s impressive grounds make it well worth being off the beaten track. Housed inside a renovated former farmstead surrounded by greenery and close to the sprawling Arenberg Park, you might just decide to skip town and go for a romantic stroll or picnic near The Lodge instead.
