“Clean and comfortable - very nice”
Reviewed 29 August 2009

I have stayed at this hotel four times on business trips to Leeuwarden with colleagues since January 2007, and every time it has been a very pleasant experience. The staff is helpful and kind, and the rooms are clean, comfortable, roomy and they look nice. The en-suite bathrooms all have a shower, a bath and a toilet and are also roomy. The location, however, is not grand, but a 5-10 minute walk brings you to the centre of Leeuwarden. Definitely value for money!

The staff/students were professional, enthusiastic & helpful, making our stay very pleasant. The room & bathroom were emaculately decorated & clean. The beds were comfortable & the breakfast enjoyable. I'd be very happy to stay here again.

The only negative comment I can make is that the hotel rooms are a long walk through the university hallways from the hotel reception, making them difficult to access for anyone who may have mobility needs.

The staff is very nice, but the hotel layout is very strange. Check in is very far from the rooms. So if you want to visit your room after breakfast or such, you have to troll all over the school. Toilets are also quite a stroll from the restaurant. Rooms itself are fine, but the pillow was not very comfortable.

We were invited by family and experienced the package: "Kruip in de huid van" which is organized by the hotel students to show the guests their study environment. Hotel Wyswert is located in the Hotelschool just a 15 minute walk from the centre of Leeuwarden . This is an example of how all hotels should be, smiling helpful students, perfect rooms, perfect restaurant & enthusiastic service.
We had a great weekend!

We had a nice stay for 1 night, 2 rooms in a beautiful spacious room at the Hotelschool. Special place, very attent youngsters to help and service you. Good breakfast. Very high value for money. Of course a little bit away from the center but near the Rengerspark good for jogging etc. Overall "above average", certainly if you want to see a modern international hotelschool.

  • Liked — Hotelcomfort
  • Disliked — The place of the hotel can be a problem
  • Tips/Secrets — Great opportunity to do!

My partner and I stayed at the hotel Wyswert in Leeuwarden for one night and were a little surprised that the hotel is part of a college campus and the staff are all students studying hotel managment! The room was spacious, very clean and staff were very welcoming and helpful. I can see that this environment would not suit everyone, but if you don't mind staying somewhere a little unusual, this hotel represents great value and offers very friendly staff who are eager to help.
