Stayed in Leeuwarden for 2 nights off season in January in Hotel Bar 't Anker, a typical good old inn. We'd one of the more expensive rooms (15), which was basic, but fair sized and had it all, though the TV location is a bit odd. The sink was in the room (OK with us), but shower/toilet room was kind of crampy. Rooms pretty quiet and simple straight forward breakfast was included.
When you book this hotel, it's recommended to include a Thursday night. It's practice evening for the local Shanty Singers and they go on singing in the bar, till in the the last man/woman leaves the bar. Don't be afraid to sign along or if you don't know the lyrics, just move your body and dance. You don't find such place elsewhere in Leeuwarden. Pool table available in the bar, locals very friendly. Staff is very friendly too. Perfect for 1-3 nights.More
