Below is a list of hotels, bed and breakfasts and other accommodation options in diverse price categories for which we were able to block rooms until the end of July 2016. In some cases we were also able to get a small discount for you. Please contact these hotels directly to book one of the rooms for yourself. Always mention that you book your room to visit the ESHD conference.
Please note that we blocked these rooms for a reason: Leuven is not too big and hotels tend to fill up quickly around this time of year, when the University hosts several conferences. We did the best we could by blocking sufficient rooms. But we cannot guarantee that you find a comfortable bed if you book later than the end of July – after that date, many of the listed hotels will start to allow general tourists or other customers to book these rooms… So please do yourself a favour and book in time, before the end of July!

Park Inn Leuven***
Hotel The Lodge Heverlee***
Phone: + 32 16509509
This hotel is not in Leuven, but in an adjacent town to the south of the city. However, the conference location is also south of the city center; it is about 20 mins to walk from the hotel. We think it’s worth a mention because it is in a very nicely renovated historic farm building. Please use the following reference: “ESHD congres 277611”.
The Irish College / Leuven Institute for Ireland in Europe
phone: +32 16310430
This is not really a hotel, but a research institute that offers single and double rooms. As a price indication, single rooms are about 105 euro including breakfast; double rooms (with separate beds) about 130 euro including breakfast. If you want to book this accommodation, please use this reservation form (click here) and take a look to the cancellation policy forms here. Please note that the Irish College holds the rooms for ESHD only until the 15th of June.
Two-star/ budget hotels
Hotel La Royale
phone: +32 16221252
If you want to book this hotel, please book via email (not via their website!) and add the reference code “ESHD congress”. This hotel will then also offer you a discount for any days you want to book right before or right after the conference.
IBIS Budget Hotel
Hotel Mille Colonnes
Bed and Breakfast
To reserve a room in this B&B, please use the code “Guesthouse Begijnhof - ESHD 2015”.
A note on further budget options.
Below are budget hotels and hostels the KU Leuven regularly works with and recommends. For these specific hotels and hotels, we unfortunately were not able to have rooms blocked for us, so please book as early as you can!
Alongside, Airbnb.com might be a good option to try: the academic year has not started yet at the time of our conference, so there might well be relatively cheap rooms for rent.
This is a very new hostel that also has doubles for 58 per person per night including breakfast and wifi.
