“Quiet and restful stay in Leiden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

This hotel was only a few yards from the railway station and five minutes from the centre of the city. The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful, the hotel was very smart, newly built, very modern and room was small but comfortable and shower extremely efficient. All in all, excellent.

Does exactly what you would expect from a business hotel. Small, well appointed room. Odd bathroom, rather stuffed into corner, but clean with good shower. Good breakfast. Helpful staff. Very convenient for station. Minimal evening food but plenty of good restaurants around corner.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Ibis offered an expensive stay in a really small room (around 350 euros for two nights including breakfast). Besides the price and the small room, things were pretty ok. Bathroom was great, especially the big shower. Even the wifi worked pretty well. In general the room was pretty new and clean.

Breakfast was very minimal. There are great cafes within couple minute walk so that might be another option for the breakfast also.

The location is very convenient since the hotel is right next to the railway station. Although this also had a side effect, meaning the views from the hotel room were pretty industrial since the rail tracks are right beside the hotel.

In summary: Ibis Leiden was just what I needed: all business, no pleasure. I would not recommend the place for a holiday trip, but for business purposes the hotel was a decent choice.

Room Tip: Higher floor rooms have better views (eg. 5th or 6th floor).

There were 30 of us booked into the IBIS by Leiden train station for my sisters wedding. Realy comfortable and clean. We booked taxis to take us to the location and they never showed making us late for the ceremony. After we came back at 2am to be told that despite hhe 24/7 advertising gor food and drink they stop serving at 1am. Why advertise one thing and do another. Saying that great location most staff helpful and friendly

I have given this hotel 5 stars judging it against similar types of hotel. It is not a luxury Grand Hotel obviously but as a low-cost hotel it is one of the best I have stayed in. Location near the station is excellent if you are travelling by train and the centre of Leiden is a few minutes walk away. Unlike many cities, the area around the station is fine. You can also catch a bus to local places from just across the road.
The staff were unfailingly helpful. Rooms are small-ish (as expected) but clean and ours had a great view over the city. We heard no traffic noise at all. Breakfast was good: continental buffet with a few hot things. There is no restaurant but there is a bar. If I had to nit-pick, I would have preferred more English tv channels and a toaster at breakfast but that's it!

With the IBIS chain you know what to expect. Comfortable bed, good but basic room and bathroom. Clean, but 'sterile' atmosphere. In this hotel they installed some 'cosy' corners at the lobby, but is stays impersonal. Breakfast is rather expensive.
Location is fine, one step from the train and bus station, two steps from the very idyllic centre of Leiden. If you come by car, you can use the parking at ‘Haagweg’, it is the cheapest in town and they have a free city shuttle.
I would recommend this hotel for business or citytrip.
