            Recommended by friend.

            Central location, VERY helpful staff, clean rooms, good breakfast!

            The spiral staircase pole could use a good washing with hot water and ammonia ... kinda sticky/cruddy ... didn't want to grab hold of it, but you kinda need to! Otherwise, great place. Would DEFINITELY stay here again!!

          • Group of friends
            7.4

            The location is great, and the people at reception were friendly. The rooms are good sized;

            I thought that breakfast was rather poorly. No fresh juice, not many things to put on the bread. The hotel is rather noisy, doors slamming, people walking around...not very will insulated

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            The hotel staff is extremely pleasant and helpful. The breakfast is good and plentiful. The rooms are small but clean and comfortable.

            Construction noise from the project next door started early in the morning. Room was a little stuffy at times - no fresh air without opening sliding door.

          • Older travelers
            6.6

            The hotel was small, clean and basic and the staff were very good and friendly.

            The plumbing in Room 11 was poor and needs sorting out. The cistern was too slow in filling up and the tap water lacked pressure. This room was also next to the spiral marble staircase, and everytime someone used it you could hear them on the stairs. Maybe some carpet would reduce the sound. The hotel also lacked atmosphere.

          • Group of friends
            9.6

            The kind staff at the hotel, very friendly and welcoming towards guests.

            I have no complaints

            Location

            Place is old and rooms very small

          • Couple
            7.4

            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.

            Very friendly receptionist helping at the desk after late arrival.

            Room was poor of furniture and athmosphere/ old sixties.

            The bad insulation in the rooms. I was waking up early morning due to banging dorrs.

            7.4

            Simple, well kept, nice staff.

            A little noisy, mainly because of location, could do better on soundproofing.

          • Group of friends
            9.2

            The hotel reception staff was helpful, polite and nice. Room was comfortable and was relentlessly kept clean by the staff. Internet access was easy to setup and sufficiently fast for good Skype performance.

            Just a minor point that perhaps could be improved -- some cooked warm dish for breakfast (like an omelet).

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            Very close to the old center of Leuven, but calm environment; very friendly staff; protected parking very close

            The first morning the cleaning ladies were very noisy , talking loudly and shutting doors with a lot of force , as on purpose
