This is a family friendly hotel. Plenty of parking space in the back of the hotel. Located at a quiet neighborhood. Require driving to get around as there's nothing within walking distance. Comfortable beds though a little small for two people a bed.

Dear guest, Nice review, thank you. We're glad you enjoyed your stay with us in Leiden. Our hotel is located just outside Leiden, in a nice and quiet area and were very close to the North Sea beaches, right in between The Hague and Amsterdam and of course the Keukenhof! We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Kind regards,... More

Stayed 4 nights and had a great time. Kids (10 & 8) thought hotel was "awesome"! Our rooms were inner rooms just by restaurant and kids' play room but they weren't overly noisy. Buffet-style restaurant which offered a great variety for breakfast. We also had dinner there on 3 of the nights because, although not the most aesthetically pleasing surroundings,... More

well, for Holiday Inn, I was a bit dissapointed. I knew from start it is old, but renovated, but was still supprised by his 80's appearance. It is somehow interesting having a "court yard" in the middle of hotel and the rooms arround it, but it appears (at least to me) somewhat too cold, without any charm. Nevertheless, rooms are...

Our family got quiet toons facing the parking area, in the absence of any children. The breakfast and dinner buffets were quite inviting for our family of 12. This is a hotel worth your money to stay that is near Amaterdam and Hague.

We stayed her a couple of weekends ago with some friends when we visited Amsterdam and the Keukenhof tulip gardens.

Fifty miles from Amsterdam... The hotel is not that bad... But how about a smiling receptionist... Rooms were simple and practical... Very close to a bus station... Not much to see or do in Leiden though

Nice stay with family over the weekend with all amenities that one would expect while staying with kids. The hotel was very busy and the restaurant seemed to be particularly crowded throughout the day. The pool is well managed. The hotel is not close to the station and can be reached by bus routes 31 and 43. Avoid 43 as... More

It is a nice big familiar hotel, but the rooms in the inside too noisy, specially at weekend with all the kids arriving, shouting and running. The breakfast very good. The shuttle to and from Central Leiden with very few runs, and only in weekdays. This was not nice. However public transportation conveniently stops at the hotel (bus 43, 30... More

Dear guest, Thank you for your feed back. Families prefer rooms on the interior side of the hotel, rooms on the exterior side are somewhat more quiet.

The hotel architecture is an American motel configuration. You park you car directly in front of you room door.
