My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks while we transitioned from the US to Leiden. The staff was very friendly, but the hotel itself was unimpressive. The room was very outdated and smelled musty. I gasped when I walked in because I couldn't believe how uninviting it was! We had to keep the window open to... More

Stayed here for two nights to attend a wedding reception. Not entirely clear what is the difference between the golden tulip hotel and the tulip inn - they both share reception and the restaurant. Great value for money and great service.

It is very hard to be truly objective on just a single night's stay, but based on only that, I can say that the Golden Tulip is a good hotel located in the heart of "business" Leiden, and about a 10 to 15 minute walk from the older "historic" town. I couldn't make the "free" internet to work, parking was... More

We didn't choose the hotel but were booked here on a cycling holiday. When we saw the hotel we weren't too enamoured: It's a typical large corporate soulless city centre business hotel. But.... the rooms were large, comfortable and quiet, there was secure storage for our bikes, the staff were friendly, the location excellent for the city centre of Leiden... More

We stayed here twice on a cycling holiday. Decent sized rooms, nice breakfast, good location and comfortable beds. Very near the station and close enough to the main town square which is a 10 minutes walk.

Stayed here a couple of times for business. The hotel is fine: you should not book a room because of the fancy design of it, but if you are looking for a good hotel that offers a central location and a large selection of breakfast, this is a hotel you should consider.

Its my 7th time at the Golden Tulip. Great location close to the city centre and the station. Good staff and nice rooms. A little bit old fashioned and it is a good idea to avoid the rooms facing the street (noise). But otherwise: Recommended

Dear Traveler, I recently stayed at the Golden Tulip. My suggestion is to indicate that you want to stay in the new rooms when you are doing the booking. Besides being new, the rooms are more spacious. I was here during business travels and was asked to dispose my deodorant bottle and my shaving cream at the airport so when... More

You can't hide a little frustration by entering the Lobby. This hotel has the charme of the seventies with used up carpets and it continues by entering the room. Except the bath room. this relatively new revamped. Make-up or Razor mirror is missing. Room temperature is controlled by air conditioning for the whole house but, can't be separately adjusted. Windows... More

Stayed here for business purposes and it was more than adequate. Staff were accommodating and room was clean. The room itself seemed a little tired and in need of an update, but by contrast the bathroom was ultra modern and really nice shower etc. Location is perfect, next to the Leiden Centre, and less than 5mins walk to Leiden Centraal...
