Stayed 3 nights at the hotel when we visited Keukenhof garden. We had a most enjoyable time. The hotel was clean and comfortable and the staff were faultless. We ate in the restaurant on 2 evenings and enjoyed our meals. The hotel is a little distance from Leiden center but we booked a water taxi at reception and were collected... More

Found this place on an earlier trip to Leiden and wanted to try the restaurant. Friendly and efficient service. My starter was delicious, avocado salad. My husband choose asparagus soup as it was in season . It wasn't warm enough. He chose lamb and I chose pullet. Both choices were disappointing. Lovely ambience but we wouldn't visit for food again.

I stayed in a junior suite room, It is a very nice, convenient, quiet from the busy or loud noise things. Only the price was expensive, sometimes I could hear some trucks passed by as the room near the road. The room also has its own balcony. This hotel offers nice place for relaxing as the location near the river.... More

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.
