I recently returned from a trip at the Huys van Leyden, and it was an excellent stay in all regards. The property was beautiful with a picturesque setting on one of the main canals in Leiden. The staff was equally excellent and were warm and accommodating to any request. The room was spacious, had lots of windows, and the bed... More

We stopped in Leiden on our cycling trip. Beautiful historic city. We had a charming room that had been thoughtfully restored on the top floor A nice mix of classic beams and wood and a view of the canal. Our travelling companions had a ground floor room facing the street hence no privacy if window and coverings open Very attentive... More

Booked for one night, apartment is about 100m from the main hotel. Clean and tidy, no frills. Welcome was very friendly and great location. Decent value, but the hotel did look nicer; it also has triple rooms, so would choose these

Unfortunately this was only a one night stay. Gaston and his staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was superb and the breakfast excellent. This is a beautiful old city and well worth a visit.

We found this little boutique hotel via the internet, hidden away from mainstream searches? It is very small, our building I think only housed 4 rooms, there is another building, plus an apartment. It is in quite an historic building and therefore very quaint! We had the ground floor room at the back ( 3 )! It is a two... More

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
