“Nice hosts and nice location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

We stayed at their apartment which is around the corner from the hotel. For the most part it was a positive stay. This was a last minute reservation so if we could have stayed at the hotel that would have been our preference. Having said that the breakfast was very nice and worth spending the extra $$. We took the city tour which was great and used the taxi service to go to Keukahof for the day. If you have a car ask about garaging it and walk.

I stayed here on my birthday and had the canal facing room. It was an absolutely lovely, beamed room. The staff were friendly. The location was great and Leiden has a lovely atmosphere. Breakfast was plentiful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to stay in Leiden.

We stayed on the ground floor at the back of the hotel. It was ample, quiet and flooded with light.
The staff was terrific. The second floor dining room, overlooking a canal was beautiful with an ample cold breakfast buffet. On the two mornings we were there the chef prepared delicious eggs and bacon in the small kitchen behind the dining room. It was easy to walk everywhere and the restaurant recommendations were good. We parked in their garage which was a bonus for us.

Room Tip: Rear ground floor room was quiet and easy in and out. Stairs to dining room steep, but to be expect...

The bicycle touring company we booked with booked us here. Easy to find, an easy 15 minute walk from the train station. Was shown immediately to our room (#3 on the ground floor). Quaint in that on the entry floor, there is the bathroom and then the bed is up one steep ladder on the 2nd floor. This room has its own door to the shared balcony outside. Outside of the bathroom is a coffee maker, hot pot and fridge. The location is great, within walking distance of anything you would want to see. Breakfast (which was included for us) the next morning is nice- they will make you an egg dish and with that you have the normal things that you find at a continental breakfast (croissants, various breads/rolls, yogurt, granola, fruit).
The only negative was that the door on this room rattled with any wind or if anyone opened/closed the front door to the hotel- this woke me up many times throughout the night as not only is it loud, but it sounds like someone is knocking on your door. We did mention it to the owner, so hopefully they will have this fixed.
Wifi was reliable and free.
Otherwise, they were wonderfully friendly and I would stay here again.

Room Tip: #3 may be a room to avoid if they haven't fixed the rattling door

We had a warm welcome by the owner who showed us to the room and helped us to orientate ourselves with recommendations of good places to eat, drink and visit.
The attic room we had is small and may not be so suitable if you are on the tall side, however it was fully equipped with everything you may need such as coffee- and tea making, mini-fridge, large flat-screen TV and en-suite bathroom. The mini-safe was rather pointless you as it wasn't bolted to the floor or furniture...someone with the wrong intentions could simply carry them out (including your valuables), hidden in a shopping bag.
Breakfast was excellent with good breads, cheeses, cold meats, cereals and yoghurts, as well as a choice of egg dishes.
The location in the old town center of Leiden is excellent with everything within walking distance.

Room Tip: Very tall people may not want the attic room, with restricted head space. If you struggle with narr...

We were picked up at the airport and cared for like family. The breakfasts were fantastic. Wonderful bed and room with a private deck on the back. Very quiet. Within walking distance of everything we wanted to see in Leiden. Many thanks, Gaston, Vera, and Leah and Alex.

A wonderful place to stay the Loft apartment is a few houses away from the main hotel, and both overlook the canal. It's in a conservation zone and very pretty, within a few minutes walk of all the main sights.it is a peaceful area, and you are more likely to hear ducks or bicycle bells than cars. The Loft is up very steep flights of stairs but Gustav had no problems carrying our luggage up there. It's luxurious and a real retreat from the world, with everything you need. Gustav was charming and told us about an exhibition in the nearby art gallery and pointed out possible places to eat, though the hotel has an interesting lunch and dinner menu as well. I have stayed at various top hotels, and this matched the service at many much larger hotels. Loft living seems popular in this town, which is centrally placed to visit most of Holland's attractions. For example, Keukenhof gardens are about 25 minutes drive away. We peeked into a couple of rooms at the main hotel, and they also looked very luxurious.

Room Tip: Choose the Loft if you can manage steep stairs, if not try the Delft room in the main hotel, it'...
