This boutique hotel offers beautiful rooms in a quiet area of the city. You can easily walk to the town shopping and tourist areas. The breakfast was excellent with a cook at your disposal to prepare your meal as you wish. The only concern was that our room was situated on the ground floor with a window facing the inner... More

This is a very nice hotel with beautiful rooms. It is situated in an 16th century, characterful building, and the room we stayed in had nice wooden baulks along the ceiling and a view over the lovely roof terrace. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The room was clean, and the shower was excellent. We choose to have our... More

This is a great hotel with a very good location for avoiding excessive noise and traffic. It is off the (Singel) canal within fairly easy walking for certain sites, e.g. Lakenhal, Rijksmuseum for Folkart. For getting to the university the walk is longer, or take the bus on the street parallel to the hotel to the Witte Singel. For walking... More

We just spent over a week at the Huys van Leyden. Our first 8 nights were spent in the studio, which is just around the corner from the hotel The room was very clean and well appointed, if you were wanting to make a meal at all. The bed was very comfortable and with lovely linens. Only wished there had... More

Excellent location, clean and comfortable room. Warm welcome. Beautiful decor and delicious breakfast. Steep stairs to breakfast room and in our particular room. Lovely roof top balcony to enjoy pre dinner drink

We stayed for two nights in the loft apartment and were delighted with the facilities and space in the spotlessly clean and well-appointed accommodation. Gaston was very welcoming and gave us some good recommendations for lunch. The stairs to the loft, like most canal-side houses in the Netherlands, are a bit treacherous and you wouldn't want to have heavy bags... More

We stayed at their apartment which is around the corner from the hotel. For the most part it was a positive stay. This was a last minute reservation so if we could have stayed at the hotel that would have been our preference. Having said that the breakfast was very nice and worth spending the extra $$. We took the... More

I stayed here on my birthday and had the canal facing room. It was an absolutely lovely, beamed room. The staff were friendly. The location was great and Leiden has a lovely atmosphere. Breakfast was plentiful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to stay in Leiden.

We stayed on the ground floor at the back of the hotel. It was ample, quiet and flooded with light. The staff was terrific. The second floor dining room, overlooking a canal was beautiful with an ample cold breakfast buffet. On the two mornings we were there the chef prepared delicious eggs and bacon in the small kitchen behind the... More

The bicycle touring company we booked with booked us here. Easy to find, an easy 15 minute walk from the train station. Was shown immediately to our room (#3 on the ground floor). Quaint in that on the entry floor, there is the bathroom and then the bed is up one steep ladder on the 2nd floor. This room has... More
