The location is easy accessible by bus (direct bus from train station to hotel) or car. Parking is free for hotel guests. It is not in the center, but walking distance. Alongside the canal that is even very nice. The lobby and restaurant are recently refurbished and welcoming. The rooms are nice, the beds very comfortable and only the pillows... More

I stayed for two nights and was pleasantly surprised by the great service by the students and the excellent rooms and amazing restaurant. This is not only a place where students learn but a place where hoteliers should come and learn!

Enjoyed our two night stay. Well worth its 4 stars. Lovely clean comfortable beds and good bath with shower. Had breakfast one morning and it was really good with a lot of choices. Leeuwarden is a very pretty place and easy to get around.

This hotel is a college where students learn about the hospitality trade and basically run the hotel. They were having some external work done but we found the reception and it wasn't as slick as some, but they got there and the place was quiet and the rooms were very comfortable. Breakfast was in a sectioned off area for hotel... More

A friendly hotel about fifteen minutes pleasant canal walk from the centre. The hotel forms part of the university which is interesting as you leave the hotel entrance to enter a busy school corridor. There's is adequate separation so the rooms are very quiet and you never get any disturbance just unexpected. All other aspects cleanliness , 24 hour reception... More

A bit outside of Leeuwarden (15 minutes walk to real downtown), quite location, excellent luxurious rooms, high quality service. They serve excellent breakfast. The hotel also houses the Wannee restaurant.

This is an unusual hotel in that it is fully integrated, physically and academically, into Stenen University - so you are on campus, walking side by side with the students and it is the students who form the backbone of the staff. So, you get considerable levels of help, greetings, staff and concern within a competent (think Novotel level) accommodation... More

This interesting hotel is run by university students that has always the same pros and cons. The service was very friendly, but not always that organized. My room was a superior room - I didn't find out what was the difference between it and a normal room. Hotel rooms are in the other side of the university campus than the... More

This hotel is run very well, by students. You get a lot of attention and questions :) That's how they learn :) It is a different feeling as usual... But if you know this upfront, you see that all these future hotel managers :) will do a very good job:) We had a very nice stay in the very nice... More
