“Great service, great price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

I was attending a conference in Leiden in October, at the Stadsgehoorzaal. It was just the perfect hotel for such an occasion, at the perfect price.

Nice, clean, quiet, an easy short walk from the centre and its many restaurants. With the Leiden Centraal train station just across the square, you are just 30-40 minutes away from the centre of Amsterdam.

Rooms are not overly spacious, but spacious enough for a couple. Bed was comfortable. Staff was very friendly, helpful and efficient. Great breakfast. You have wifi, plus a couple of desktop computers in the main lobby, if you do not want to take your laptop/iPad with you.

Perfect budget hotel for friends and family. Great Location too, one stop from Schiphol, Walking distance from major public transport and yet very quiet. Close to central Leiden shopping area and restaurants

We were attending a conference in Leiden in November and the organizers put us up at this hotel. We had never stayed in an Ibis before, but were familiar with other international budget chains like Toyoko in Japan. Granted the rooms are small, but the rooms and bathrooms are designed to optimize functionality with limited space. So, the bed was comfortable, the room was spotless, the staff were multilingual and helpful for everything, the breakfast buffet had lots of options, the wifi was free. There was also a lobby bar, but we didn't use it. The Ibis is 2 blocks from the train station and tourist office and an easy walk to the Volkunde Museum, the scenic old town, and shopping street. There are good to very good restaurants within 10 minutes from the hotel. This Ibis hotel is located on a block that has a Burger King, a Walgreen's-type retailer, an Al-Di grocery store, and a full-service supermarket. The rest of our trip was vacation and while we did not stay at other Ibis hotels, this gave us a standard by which to judge other hotels, since it had been more than 10 years since we were last in Europe.

Nice place to stay in a business trip. Hotel room was very nice, everything worked properly (including wi-fi). Didn't use any other of the hotel amenities, but the front desk staff was very helpful and kind. Really close, like 1 min, to all sorts of transportation (Leiden Centraal)

The Ibis Leiden is very well located. It is directly across the street from the Central Station; thus you can be in The Hague within 15/20 minutes and in Amsterdam in under one hour. Leiden is also an attractive student town. My expectations were quite low: Ibis is a no-frills operation and I had got a very good deal. The hotel is rather anonymous and seems almost like an office block in terms of its appearance and comforts. However, the public areas were clean and well-kept. The room was spacious and the bed was comfortable. My biggest problem was with the bathroom. The toilet had not been cleaned after the previous guest, which is something that is unforgivable and should never happen with a hotel that has any sort of reliable quality control. There was also an issue with the drains and the sink stank to high heaven. While I can live with poor plumbing, low standards of cleanliness are just unacceptable.

Newly opened in 2012, this hotel provides exactly what you can expect from an Ibis hotel. Basic comfortable rooms, good beds, courtly service and all regular 3 star amenities. As location goes, this is the best bet for those who want the train station literally on their doorstep. Definitely a better choice than the two Tulip hotels down the station square. Check for early bird discounts - the regular rate of 89 euros is a bit steep but not uncommon for Leiden. I would return.
