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.

Central? Yes but you walk through Leiden in 15 min. My room was ok, the bathroom not. Terrible bathroom. Breakfast far from valuable for the 7.5€, buy your own if you're going for cheap. IBIS at the central have a opening offer atm (first Q of 2012), which is better.

We chose this hotel because it was close to the train station. However, the room was not the best. The hardwood floor in the corner of the room behind a chair had not been cleaned for a long time, as it was covered in dust bunnies. There was noise coming from a hole in the bathroom wall at night. The... More

I have stayed at this hotel several times on business, mainly because it is one of the cheaper hotels in Leiden. However, last night was the last time I will stay there. First of all, I was made to pay in full for the room when I checked in. This has never happened before, and when I asked why, I... More

This hotel is very badly located - trying to sleep at night with all the noise on the square outside is impossible. Arriving late, you get to deal with a taxi company next door who take a manual copy of your credit card - an outdated and untrustworthy way of doing business. The room itself had massive water stains on... More
