After getting married in Singapore, we celebrated our wedding in The Netherlands at Van der Valk Hotel Leiden. The organization was flawless and the staff was able to play in on our needs and wishes. The Africa Suite was ours for the night, a lovely room with jacuzzi and very comfortable bed, and breakfast in bed the next morning. A... More

The rooms are relatively standard, but the bathtub had a whirlpool build in. Although, I did not use it for long, as I was afraid the noise would be distubing to the neighbors (I did not get complaints, so maybe it is ok). There is a bus stop nearby with frequent connections to The Hague and Leiden station. I was... More

I spent two weeks at the Hotel Van der Valk Leiden (also known as "Het Haagsche Schouw") while visiting the Lorentz Center at the University of Leiden. This is a very comfortable hotel, modern, and quiet. The Lorentz Center is within walking distance (approx. 20 minutes), and a bus to Leiden Centraal Station or Den Haag Centraal Station stops in...

I had stayed here several times on business so knew it quite well and chose to return for a weekend with my husband. The staff are very friendly and all the facilities are great. Good rooms with comfortable beds. Most rooms have balconies and as we are smokers this allowed us to enjoy our stay. Breakfasts are excellent and the... More

I stayed here for a visit to the Lorenz Centre. It's a very nice hotel, right on the river. The rooms are comfortable, clean, and mostly quiet - there's not much noise from outside, but noise does come through from the corridors, so if there are people coming back to their rooms and talking loudly, you can hear that. There... More

Stayed here for the second time from 25th to 28th October visiting our son who is at Leiden University for a year. Room on front near road and admittedly noisier than quiet rear but didn't disturb us too much. Paid 200 Euros for 3 nights which I think is excellent value for a hotel of this quality. Room and facilities... More

I have spent about 3 nights here over the last 4 years now, and it has always been a pleasure. The name "vdValk" normally would not attract me, but this hotel is wonderful in every way. Great service, atmosphere, good rooms. the only -/- for me is that it is almost impossible carrying your suitcases up and down some steps.... More

Extremely nice and helpful staff, great rooms, very good breakfast buffet. A little far away from the city center, but close to the university. Nice bar. I would not hesitate to recommend it to everybody who is visiting Leiden.

Perfect for business at the nearby university which is just a short walk away. Excellent meals to be had within the hotel if you don't want to travel into the center of Leiden. My room faced the road, but it was not noisy at night. In room WiFi (and throughout the hotel) was excellent, I had no problems with it.

Lage and comfortable room with very comfortable twin-beds. Comfortable balcony. Convenient bathroom. The location is not excellent, near a round-about, so a bit noisy. However the traffic at night was nos very important.
