No place to play for kids which is not easy to handle with a 4 years old child, carpet looks like dirty ... Room was clean but the shower was wery old and looked very used.... All in all nice but not perfect

The hotel is wonderful! Many thanks to the staff for their willingness to help with our English level is below average! It helps shuttle service to downtown. The meals are tasty, the room was very clean. Recommended to all!

Stayed there for a week for a conference at the Leiden Center. The hotel is only a 10-minute bike ride from the university and a 20-minute ride from downtown. Not the easiest access to the city center if you are not into cycling but the rooms are nice and clean, the bathrooms are equipped with a jacuzzi, the bar is...

This is one of the best hotels I've stayed at in Europe - the room was excellent, love the hotel bar, and everyone at the conference that I was at had a positive experience. That being said, I enjoy walking and jogging, and like the fact that it is somewhat far away from everything. For those more averse to moderate...

The hotel is located quite outside the main part of Leiden. They offer a free shuttle bus but this only goes three times in the morning and in the afternoon and there are only 8 spots, you have to sign up before. Otherwise, the bus connection is not so good. Renting a bike costs 10 EUR per day. The rooms...

The hotel was welcoming, facilities were clean, our room was spacious and nicely decorated. The meals were delicious and the breakfast was more than you could eat! We liked the location next to the water and it was great to sit outside. We would like to stay here again!

If you are looking for an average hotel at a reasonable price this is the place. No problem with parking. Breakfast was the normal breakfast. Staff friendly but not knowledgeable of surrounding area. Easy commute to airport if you have a car.

Shame as the hotel is very grand looking. Rooms clean. Breakfast lovely. Unfortunately I stayed in the cellar, which was dark due to the fact the windows were below ground level. This wouldn't normally bother me but I booked into here to get ready for my wedding - despite me saying that it was for me and my bridesmaids, there...

I have been there at least 3 times in the last 8 years as part of work meetings in the nearby Lorentz Center from the University Leiden. I was happily surprised by the fact that my bath had bubbles... So it was awesome. The view over the canal and the buffet breakfast are among the top. The bar could have...

Our favorite place to stay when visiting family and friends in Holland. But hard to enjoy the "disco" at the breakfast table. Management says "it comes from the satellite and we can not do anything about it" On the other hand it is surprising that no Norovirus has broken out when people are using the most flimsy loo paper, which...
