The top was breakfast. They serve you everything, eggs/scramble eggs, to pumpcakes, all kind of yoghurt, bread,...really satisfactory. The best think is that if it is sunny... More

The Africa suite was very nice. The breakfast buffet was very good and has a good quality. The hotel was situated on a very nice location next to a canal. The hotel was located next to a bus station (time to center about 15 minutes).

Nice and friendly place where to stay both for business or holidays. Staff friendly, discrete. Very nice and quite big rooms, with large bathroom and balcony. Close to university and to the center of Leiden ( 15 min. by bike). I will definetely take into account this hotel in the future.

Nice and friendly place for a lunch on a sunny day near the water. Good price quality value. No frills just simple and good with friendly female staff. I want to try the hotel and restaurant for dinner at a next opportunity. Van der Valk chain has a very good reputation.

I stayed at this hotel for a 2-week business trip, most of which I spent in the bed with some illness. The staff was always helpful to me, everyone speaks English, internet works, etc. That all and the fact that the hotel provides very nice lunches and dinners made my stay comfortable, despite the illness.

The wonderful location at the bank of Rijn, the nice walk to the Lorentz Center and to the center of Leiden. A very friendly personnel, a cozy bar with the live FIFA World Cup. A peaceful room with no noise.

This van der Valk hotel in Leiden is definitely the best one I visited in Leiden: - sufficient free parking - free wifi - nicely situated next to a canal - great terrace - very good and spacey restaurant; correct pricing. Service could be a bit better. - great breakfast - cosy bar with plenty of beer choices. Service here... More

Nice location but be aware that some rooms are adjacent to a busy commuter road which makes use of the balcony less attractive. Breakfast was fine, dinner very good except for the tournados and beefsteak (i am used to a better quality). Staff very attentive and helpful. Outside patio wonderful when the weather permits.

I can highly recommend this hotel for company meetings / functions. The company I work for use the meeting facilities on a regular basis and the service/facilities on offer are first class. The surroundings are also very pleasant, the atmosphere good and the staff very friendly.

I stayed here in March 2014 during a one-week workshop at the nearby Leiden University. This was a great hotel with very comfortable and clean beds, but the rooms adjacent to the road experience noticeable road noise in the early morning. Nevertheless, I had a great stay and will most certainly stay here if ever back in Leiden.
