Comfortable hotel with a good spread of amenities most of which we were unable to take advantage of as the purpose of our visit was to help our daughter settle into life in Leiden in preparation for her foreign experience year at Leiden University. The hotel's location is good if you have a car but less convenient if you don't.... More

Good room, a bit far away but that's ok as it was holiday time and I was away from all the kids and noise. Has a pool which I didn't know about, also a plus. Food in the bar was tasty and not overly expensive. It's a bit away from the town centre but that wasn't a problem for me... More

Since we have become parents, there are few places where we could feel really welcomed and not strange about going out with a moody or screaming child. I was very surprised when we discovered Holiday Inn Leiden, that it was designed to respond to the needs of a family with children. There are multiple things that I liked during my... More

We have stayed here 3 times before but then stayed at other hotels in the area for 4 or 5 visits but never found anywhere as good as here. One strength of this hotel is it's close proximity to Leiden with only a 6 minute / €2 bus ride needed to get you into the stunning city centre with all... More

Stayed in the hotel for 4 nights for our holland trip. Very reasonable price for a double-bed room. Bed size is pretty big, good enough for a family with 2 kids. Breakfast buffet is good, free for kids. Location is kind of remote for travellers without a car, 30 minutes walk from Central Station. No shuttle in summer, so we... More

An amazingly comfortable huge bed with choice of pillows was the highlight of our 3 night stay. Couldn't fault the facilities, cleanliness, service or breakfast. Our only disappointment was that we were expecting a free shuttle bus into the town and although we read that it didn't run during holidays we assumed that meant public holidays... Unfortunately it also meant... More
