We were staying a couple of nights in Leiden, visiting old haunts having lived there many years ago. I picked the Mayflower as it is situated quite centrally on Beestenmarkt. The place is non-smoking, but entering the reception there was quite a stale tobacco smell. The reception area was also rather tatty looking - with chips out of paintwork etc.... More

If you would like to visit Leiden,this hotel will be your good choice. Just 3 minute walk from Leiden central station. Room and bed are clean and comfortable. We got a room on second floor, there is a big terrace where you can sit and enjoy your coffee in the morning or soft drinks in the evening.There is no elevator... More

Title says it all, the view from the huge windows across the square was exquisite though lacking in privacy while you enjoyed it. The room temperature was uncomfortably hot and the bathroom window unable to be left open due to its easy access from the outside, but it was possible to get some fresh air blowing through while we were...

large comfortable room, nothing fancy! Good shower/tub and nice breakfast buffet for 7.50 Euros. Less than 5 min to central station and from there 12 min by train to Shiphol, 40 to Amsterdam Centraal and by bus 30 min to Keukenhof - the tulip gardens. Also easy access to Den Haag and Rotterdam

I was in Leiden for a big beerfestival at Brewery 'De Molen' in Bodegraven' (near Gouda). So all hotels, hostels and others we're almost full. I was happy to find a hotelroom (55 EUR). I was welcome on a very business liked way (a bit worth, would be nicer). The rest of the staff we're kinda friendly. When i got... More

Excellent location right in the centre of Leiden about 10 minutes walk from the main station, looking onto a public square with cafes and a canal basin. The hotel staff were pleasant enough. Given the hotel consists of several old townhouses if is limited how much you could do with the hotel building. The stairs were typically Dutch, very steep.... More

THe hotel is located near to the center but still 5 min to walk. The room are very simple and to not have standard equipment what you like to expect like TV, fridge or minibar. The shower does not work well and warm water comes out as a small rill. The booked non smoker room was a former smoker room,... More

The rooms look dated. The TV even had an s-video input. The room was advertised as one with the balcony, but there was one small hole for a balcony. However, the bathroom was clean and the hot shower did help after the long walks in leiden and in Keukenhof. I didn't have breakfast there, the coffee house on the square... More

The hotel is located on the city square. It's an old brick building in need of upgrading. The room we were given was in an adjacent building with steep stairs and old cheep furniture. We refused this room and were given one just slightly better.
