After several days of asking nicely, suggesting and proposing, and all the time accompanied by a big smile, the hotel staff did not live up to the expectations that we are used to from other hotel chains. On the last day I finally got to speak to management. After being put on hold for a long time I had to... More

We looked for a room near this old town's center. There it was. Through an outdated lobby we stayed in a modern room. Dutch, that is, everywhere a few centimeters less then elsewhere. But very OK. Only the mattresses: during the night, I felt I was falling out of the bed, but it was just an outdated mattress... The breakfast... More

When staying in a hotel in Europe you have to forget what you are used to in Canada and enjoy the uniqueness of the historic buildings that have been converted into hotels. Our room was large and included all the amenities we are used to but reminded us of being in someone's guest room. Ensuite bathroom.

We just had three nights at this hotel, whose main attraction is its location. The bed was comfortable; towels soft; and new toiletries provided every day, even if unused. Unfortunately, the place had an air of faded shabbiness, not helped by the anomalous large screen TV in reception and the out-of-order chips machine in the lobby. There was a kettle... More

This is Hotel is located one block from a canal and a few blocks from the main market and other tourist areas which makes this hotel a great place to stay for a Leiden visit. There is a nice church directly across the street. It is an older building, a bit shabby. We were given a 3rd floor room that... More

I have stayed in this hotel twice due to its very convienient location, which is in the heart of Leiden. You can walk everywhere from the hotel. There are a lot of restaurants, shops, and bars in the near vicinity. The hotel itself is nice but basic. It has a interesting rustic decor. No frills but it is clean and... More

The BW Leiden is actually well located - close to the bars and cafes of Leiden and a short walk from the station. The rooms were reasonably clean and the one I had was spacious and appeared as if it might have been reasonably recently refurbished. My room had a spa bath which was not expected and a very small...

We love Leiden, and the Best Western has become our home away from home. On a trip to Africa our itinerary on KLM took us through Amsterdam, so we decided to explore the Netherlands. Instead of heading to Amsterdam itself, we took the train to Leiden to begin our adventure. The hotel is a short, delightful walk from the train... More

The hotel has all necessary amenities. The night clerk forgot to give us the password for the wifi - should be routine in these days. Close to the train station, in the city center, but reasonable calm. Breakfast standard and OK.
