I was in Belgium for a medical intervention at UZ Leuven in Gauthuisberg Campus, and both my Mom and I really enjoyed our time at Elvira's apartment – a small modern studio, very warm, clean and cozy. It has one window (regular size) with nice sunlight, and the view is to the back side of the main street. We didn't have any inconvenience, the neighbors were quiet and generally speaking, the apartment was well equipped. It (email hidden), internet access (not always the signal was good but it worked quite well), a fridge, a microwave (no oven function), a kettle, a toaster and a dishwasher (cool)!!! We also loved the nice location: near Leuven Station where all buses and trains can be found (which made it easier for my Mom to visit me at the hospital), the main street was also very nice, with lots of shops, a few food markets, a cinema and nice places. In addition, whenever we needed, Elvira was always available to help, and we loved this file she sent us by email beforehand, with all the relevant information about both the apartment and Leuven (transport, restaurants, maps, sightseeing, etc) - it was very helpful. I We had no communication problems and everything went fine!
A really nice cozy appartement with lots of shops, restaurants & bars within walking distance. We had an amazing weekend and I can highly recommend exploring Leuven from this perfect location!
