“Very pretty city, nice hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

This is a very nice hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The actual rooms seemed a bit outdated, but still nice, clean and comfortable, the showers were really nice with an overhead rain shower, with lots of water pressure and hot water (we didn't find this I other parts of Friesland).

We had an included dinner at the hotel, it was very unusual food for us, including chicory mousse, and apparently smoked pigeon. It was a bit fancy for my children, but it was a beautiful dining room, with nice service. It took about three hours for the three courses to be served, which seemed a bit drawn out, but still everything was very nice, with good service.

Breakfast was also nice, with some nice extras like homemade jam.

The staff was very helpful and polite.

Absolutely recommendable hotel in the centre of the city. Very good sauna downstairs, free towels and bathrobes present. (Really hot, 93 degrees!). The hotel is rather new and kept exceptionally clean. Even vegetarians can have a great diner in the restaurant. We loved it and will surely return one day.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with streetview.

Liked the location of this hotel whichis close to central station and iis close to the most restaurant. Staffs were very friendly and attentive welcoming. It was my first time in this property and purely follwed tripadvisor.com reviews before walking in which proved me right. I will definately recommend this place for all travellers to this city

Stayed here as part of a Groupon.nl offer and so pleased we did so. What struck us was how young the staff were. Don't let that put you off as they were extremely professional, helpful and friendly. A great advert for Frisland. Please try the restaurant as the food and service was first class. We also loved the car parking service, perfect for those of us who don't know the area. We hope to visit again soon!

Central location in the old part of city. Dinner and breakfast both excellent, room was comfortable, service was very good, free wifi, so overall highly recommended. I didn't use the sauna or health spa so I can't comment on those.

Enjoyed a wonderful stay here (king room). Very friendly staff. Wonderfully updated hotel in a historic building. Very short walk to the downtown canal area for shopping, bars and restaurants. Great price for the deluxe room and valet parking was a good deal. Breakfast was a nice buffet and the multicourse dinner was tasty. Look nowhere else for a room in Leeuwarden.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

I stayed here several times when doing business in Leeuwarden. The Post Plaza is definitely one of the nicer hotels in town. The location is great if you want to go to the city center - there are many restaurants and bars in the area. The railway station is still within walking distance (about 10-15 minutes). The staff is friendly, the restaurant offers OK quality for breakfast and dinner.
The room rates are a bit expensive in comparison to other places; especially as some of the standard rooms are really small. You should try to get a good deal on a comfort room or suite. The beds were very soft in all rooms I stayed in, which could be an issue if you prefer a hard matress for a good-nights-sleep. The hotel also has a small gym hidden in the basement (1 treadmill, 2 bikes, 1 stepper, a few resistance machines); the equipment is not the newest.

Room Tip: The hotel is in a historic building, so the layout is different in most rooms. Some of the standard...
