I have seen your response to RagsOxfords comments. I was a member of the same party. Maybe it would be better to think about asking guests to warn you of their estimated arrival time so that someone could be there to greet them instead of expecting them to wait in the street. Or asking them in advance whether they had...

My Husband put together a wonderful trip to Leiden for myself and inlaws (whom are in 70's). They stayed in Loft apt. which had full kitchen they enjoyed a few blocks down. We had room 5 at the Inn which is up a very narrow winding staircase. We also have a winding staircase in our home in a more contemporary...

....not recommended at all A certain charm, and the one time we saw any member of staff other than a breakfast waiter, he was quite helpful….but that’s where it ended A 10-15 minute wait in the street with our luggage before anyone showed up to open the door set the tone.

Dear Sir, Thank you for the review, Though I am not surprised you rated us like this. It does not ‘speak for itself’ that we are the reason you left. Especially because you had to leave because of a funeral (so you said). The real reason for this review is: because you did not want to pay for the night...

This is gorgeous hotel located close to town. When we checked in the owner gave us information on where to rent bikes and have lunch. He was super helpful and friendly. Our room had a roof garden, and a downstairs entrance. Be careful coming out of the shower in Room 3 as people will pass outside your window heading to...

Stayed for one night. The hotel is in a very narrow street along a canal. Very nice staff, beautiful room, amazing breakfast. Breakfast was served in the breakfast room with a la carte options (a variety of egg dishes and pancakes) and a small buffet. Would absolutely recommend! All in all an amazing hotel experience.

This is a great boutique hotel with an excellent staff. The location is close to shopping and dining. We loved it. The rooms are immaculate and spacious. We were within walking distance of great sightseeing opportunities. Canal rides are available within a 5 minute walk.

Very nice Hotel. House is from 1606- nicely renovated, but do not expect everything to be perfect and straight. I had a Maisonette room! So lots of Space, small desk Free and ok speed WLAN. Breakfast: Very good. You can order different egg styles-without extra costs.

We shared the 2 attic rooms over New Year with some friends and had a wonderful experience. The staff were friendly, the amenities clean, comfortable and stylish. The breakfast was generous and tasty. Would recommend this place to anyone staying in the beautiful city of Leiden, and we hope to return soon.

We wanted a private, intimate and cozy setting for our religious ceremony and wedding reception. Boutique hotel was perfect! The setting made our photos so regal with a elegant wallpaper, gold cutlery, candles, and 16th century style decor. The 3 course meal served was simply exquisite from the entree to the dessert. The goat cheese salad, guinea fowl and tiramisu...

Many raving reviews of Boutique Hotel Huys Van Leyden do not pertain to the hotel itself but to other properties at nearby locations, which go by the same name: a canal view loft in an old house (54 yd) and a ‘studio’ and apartment in a modern building (164yd). Very confusing for Tripadvisor users! Boutique Hotel Huys Van Leyden is...

Dear Guest, Thank you so much in putting so much effort in writing down a review. We are very disappointed that you reviewed your stay as ‘disappointed’.
