A bit difficult to find, but other than that the location is great. Clean rooms, friendly staff. They helped us find inexpensive parking. Great breakfast too!

Located in Leuven, Hotel Malon is in the city centre and near a train station. M - Museum Leuven and STUK are cultural highlights, and some of the area's landmarks include Ladeuze Square and Abbey Park. Kruidtuin Botanical Garden and Planckendael Zoo are also worth visiting.
I checked in with heavy and cumbersome luggage (>20kg) in a tiny lobby. There was no lift (the clerk apologised for that), so I carried it myself to the 2nd floor using a long, narrow staircase. The room was spacious, with enough storage for clothes and other items. The safe did not look reliable so I preferred not to use it, and carry money and valuables with me at any time. I found the room a little bit noisy in the evening up to 11pm (honestly, slamming doors is not really acceptable in a hotel !), but to be honest, I had a good sleep in general. The bathroom was fairly well maintained with a nice shower. The breakfast was really my favorite part with plenty of choice. The breakfast service (until 10am on weekdays, 10.30am on weekends) was outstanding and welcoming. I spent a total of 10 days without any issues, and found Leuven a very attractive town.
Pros: The hotel is very well situated (train station, ring road, bus stations, center...). The breakfast was great, with friendly staff. Good housekeeping.
Cons: The room was too dark, lighting was poor overall, stairs are narrow and old, there is no lift.
Location: Almost everything you want in Leuven ! Hire a bike, walk to the center, go to the Xmas market, shopping...
