“Fine hotel, good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

Stayed here a couple of times for business. The hotel is fine: you should not book a room because of the fancy design of it, but if you are looking for a good hotel that offers a central location and a large selection of breakfast, this is a hotel you should consider.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back, it is less noisy I understand.

Its my 7th time at the Golden Tulip. Great location close to the city centre and the station. Good staff and nice rooms. A little bit old fashioned and it is a good idea to avoid the rooms facing the street (noise). But otherwise: Recommended

Room Tip: Choose rooms not facing the street

Dear Traveler,

I recently stayed at the Golden Tulip. My suggestion is to indicate that you want to stay in the new rooms when you are doing the booking. Besides being new, the rooms are more spacious. I was here during business travels and was asked to dispose my deodorant bottle and my shaving cream at the airport so when I checked in (late night) I asked for a deodorant and shaving cream and they provided. The bar is really nice, Wouter (multi-lingual) takes good care of you and rooms are clean. The hotel most valuable asset is the location, which is near to Leiden Centraal.

Room Tip: Ask for the new refurbished roooms. It does make a difference in your stay.

You can't hide a little frustration by entering the Lobby. This hotel has the charme of the seventies with used up carpets and it continues by entering the room. Except the bath room. this relatively new revamped. Make-up or Razor mirror is missing. Room temperature is controlled by air conditioning for the whole house but, can't be separately adjusted. Windows cannot be opened. And, last but not least the breakfast buffet is not worth its name. Golden Tulip "goodbye"

Stayed here for business purposes and it was more than adequate. Staff were accommodating and room was clean. The room itself seemed a little tired and in need of an update, but by contrast the bathroom was ultra modern and really nice shower etc.
Location is perfect, next to the Leiden Centre, and less than 5mins walk to Leiden Centraal station.
Breakfast was nice but very over priced and you would be better going to one of the local eateries within 30seconds walk!

Very nice place to stay while in Leiden! Its an easy walk from Leiden Centraal Station, and as well as the town center. Room was clean and modern. The resturant was prettty good... great breakfast, but I took advantage of all the other close-by options for lunch and dinner.

Room Tip: It seems that the room layouts vary a great deal - especially the bathrooms. If you don't care...

Very close to railway station and within easy walking distance of Leiden centre. Lots of choice of eateries nearby which was good as hotel charging 16 euros for breakfast. Room was clean but tired decor. Staff on front desk efficient and friendly.
