We chose Leiden as our stop and enjoyed both the city and the hotel. Family pictures added to the old times touch, harmonious and lovely. Nice hotel bar. Unfortunately did not have a chance to enjoy the restaurant. Easy access everywhere. Friendly hotel staff.

I came here for a two day business trip to the university area. The hotel is conveniently located, if you come by car - if you come by train as I did, it's a bit more difficult. I had a large room with modern and stylish furniture which was top condition. The bed was comfortable. The room had a carpet... More

Th is hotel on the river is a lovely venue. The rooms were large and of exceptional quality. The breakfast was good but expensive. The cooked breakfast was not as good n the Monday as over the weekend. We would definitely go there again.

A good starting point to several sight seeings, Keukenhof, Leiden, Corpus, Rotterdam, Delft, Beaches and Kinderdejk. Parking is easy and free of charge. To see Leiden city center it needs the car or the bus.

Close to Keukenhof to visit tulip gardens in May. Helpful staff, in both hotel and restaurant. Rooms comfortable, spacious, good quality linens. Extra long bed and bath for taller than average husband! Restaurant offers great afternoon tea and meals at irregular hours which worked for us on several occasions. We enjoyed our stay so much we re-booked for the return... More

Beautiful hotel, with a nice view (for rooms opening onto the canal), great terrace, abundant choice for breakfast and friendly staff. The only inconvenience is the location -- to go downtown Leiden, make sure you don't take the bus, as the fare ($4 one way!!!) is more expensive than a taxi ($12) if you are three.

This was a very clean and comfortable hotel but it was very far from the town centre. There was also nothing to do and no restaurants around the area. Since it was not feasible to go into town for dinner we had to eat at the hotel. Food was great but we still would have liked to walk into town... More

We stayed in the apartment which was good but improved crockery and cooking pans required, the bathroom was facilities were adequate whilst the wifi was not that good. The apartment was excellent from our point of view in terms of providing a base for visiting the area. We drove to Keukenhof for the day which was outstanding.But used the train... More
