The West Cord Hotel in Leeuwrden is very nes and well equiped.Rooms are great with nice bathroom and seperated toilet.Everything was clean and did it perfect. Free parking on a distance of 200m from the hotel. Not so far located from the center of the city, walking 10 minutes.

We stayed in this hotel for 19 days while house hunting for a job transfer. We were booked into the long term apartment. The hotel is beautiful, modern and clean but not long term friendly. The hotel only cleaned our room once a week, no clean towels unless we asked and then you are charged for those. No trash pick up except for once a week. We started placing our trash bags outside our room every day as we were cooking many of our own meals. The "kitchen" was not equipped well as far as dishes, we had one tiny little tea spoon and 3 forks etc. No bowls at all, we did ask for bowls and they did bring us 2.
Our room had two twin beds pushed together to make one bed, but each bed was made up separately. The bathroom was huge and had heated floors so that was very nice since it was December and chilly.
Except for two days over one weekend, when a winter fair took place, this place was so quiet, almost like no one else was there.
When we return to Leeuwarden we hope we can move straight into the house we found as we do not really want to stay here again.

Room Tip: If staying for a long term, you might want to go to the C-1000 and purchase a few items to use in th...

I stay here on business every week for the last 10 months and am still not bored of it. I must admit that this is the cosiest place I have found in Leeuwarden. Its a super clean hotel with free wi-fi. I personally feel its even better than Hotel Post Plaza, but thats me.
I have nothing to complain about this place, and I havent got bored going back here every week for last 10 months.

stayed at the Westcord on October 18th for one night. Now don't get me wrong, the hotel is very newly looking and the rooms are modern and very clean, but I wont stay here again.
The hotel is located outside the city center and next to the WTC building. The hotel is mostly catered towards bussiness people and not for the average tourist. Yes the room has coffee and tea facilities, but I have encountered better. The room is clean and quite large, but very sterile. No decorations.
Inside the hotel is a fitness center and sauna, but that comes with a price.
Breakfast ( €15 ) was good, but not worth writing home about. However breakfast is served on the top floor and you do get a great view.
Next to the hotel is the Holland Casino. So if you are looking for a modern hotel, in a quiet place and fancy to gamble then stay here.
If you want to be closer to the city center the go somewhere else.

Room Tip: First 5 floors are catered towards bussiness people => conference rooms and such. Rooms are loca...

Good

- spacious room
- corner room, so lots of windows
- fast check-in and check-out
- friendly personell
- free wifi (although I didn't use it)
- easy access to the WTC via a separate entrance
- City centre is 2 km walk away. Easy walk.

Bad

- you have to pay for the (minimalistic) fitness room. 7.50 EUR per usage.
- No queen/king size beds available, all rooms have two singles you have to push together yourself.
- Rain shower was more a dripping shower; cleaning the showerhead helped. Would expect that regular cleaning would prevent this.
- Removing the key (used for providing power) immediately shuts down all lights. At night, a couple of minutes delay would be nice.
- On the top floor is a bar which is rented out for parties. During our stay there was a wedding, which made a lot of noise until 2 am. We were several floors down, but still had a hard time sleeping until the music stopped.

To know:

- Available parking is at B2 ; although I didn't use it myself, the reception will probably validate your ticket. Might be worth checking before arrival.
- Not every conference in the WTC allows you to enter via the direct entrance. Sometimes they will only allow vendors through (since they are sleeping in the hotel as well). Ask the staff for assistance, they will help you get in instead of walking to the other side of the WTC venue.
