This hotel is in a great spot. The staff are helpful and friendly. The rooms are a decent size...of course some bigger than others. Rooms are pretty clean. Breakfast INCLUDED! And it's a great one at that! Can pay upwards of €15 for a similar breakfast at other hotels. Just be aware that an old church is across the street... More

It's a 3-star because there was a pillar right between the single beds. There was also a pillar right in front of our room so guests can accidentally hit their head if they're giving us a visit. There's not much blockage in the bathroom so most likely water will leak out the door. Also, there was a sign saying that... More

We selected thr hotel due to its distance to the central station. Rather an old hotel. The cabling of lights, tv is not designed well. In our room we gave a pillar at the middle of the room. The furniture is old, the matres is larger than the bed. Breakfast is average. Staff is OK.

Very nice and spacious rooms, friendly staff, parking a bit of an issue but with solutions available, but above all very well located hotel to explore the magnificent old city center of Leiden. Den Hague, Amsterdam, Utrecht and Rotterdam are also within short driving distance. Very suitable location for a city trip or for business.

Stayed for two nights on a business trip. Hotel is in the city centre and very close to a number of restaurants. Efficient check in. Room was comfortable, however closet sliding doors do not close easily. Powerful shower, but no shower curtain or door - hence rest of the bathroom floor gets wet. Free wifi, with SSIDs corresponding to each... More

We stayed here for several nights - half work and half holiday. The location of this hotel is its best selling point. It is but a skip and a hop and you are in the middle of the shopping district and it's also not a million miles from the station. The hotel room itself was fine. It's not 5 star... More

Very simply the worst hotel I have stayed in a long while. Manageable things: weak breakfast, old and untidy look of the common areas, broken room door handle. Unmanageable: smell of mold, smell of sewage, the overflowing shower due to clogged drain. Would I ever stay here again?: NO

The hotel is tired and for the money not as good value as others we stayed in on our trip, but the staff are really helpful and despite its limitations it was a comfortable stopover. We stored our Bikes in the ballroom/theatre....made it very easy to sort things out

Our final vacation night was spent here because the location was recommended to us...the city was beautiful. The weather was nice too. Spent the day at the markets in town shopping, having delicious meals, and ice cream. Just a short train ride from here to the airport. Enjoyed our visit. Best Western was a great choice for our stay!

Really appreciated being able to leave our bikes secure in one of the hotel's meeting rooms. The rooms and bathrooms felt tired for a Best Western, however the breakfast was excellent and exceeded our expectations. The reception guy was a class act, very efficient and very laid-back. We really enjoyed our stay in Leiden and the hotel was in a... More
