“Beautiful and comfortable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

I've been to this hotel four nights for business/academic reasons. The room was very large and comfortable, with a balcony large enough to have a coffee table and chairs (quite unfortunately, there were road works since early in the morning); the restroom had both a bathtub and a shower.
As someone else wrote, the breakfast was one of the most complete possible (you can have it American style, British and continental all together). I tried also the restaurant there and it was very good, too. I would advise everyone to go there, in particular if - as I was - heading to the University nearby.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

I've been to this hotel three nights for business reasons. I had a very beautiful room with a large balcony, a king side bed, wiade screen TV, large bathroom with shower and bath. The top was breakfast. They serve you everything, eggs/scramble eggs, to pumpcakes, all kind of yoghurt, bread,...really satisfactory. The best think is that if it is sunny you can have your breakfast on the terrace on the river, really spectacular. If you like to run in the morning there is a very nice nearby running trail close to a lake. Really a good experience.

Room Tip: Ask rooms far from the road. Although the window isolation is excellent, in summer you want to leave...

The Africa suite was very nice.
The breakfast buffet was very good and has a good quality.
The hotel was situated on a very nice location next to a canal.
The hotel was located next to a bus station (time to center about 15 minutes).

Nice and friendly place where to stay both for business or holidays. Staff friendly, discrete. Very nice and quite big rooms, with large bathroom and balcony. Close to university and to the center of Leiden ( 15 min. by bike). I will definetely take into account this hotel in the future.

Nice and friendly place for a lunch on a sunny day near the water.
Good price quality value.
No frills just simple and good with friendly female staff.
I want to try the hotel and restaurant for dinner
at a next opportunity.
Van der Valk chain has a very good reputation.

I stayed at this hotel for a 2-week business trip, most of which I spent in the bed with some illness. The staff was always helpful to me, everyone speaks English, internet works, etc. That all and the fact that the hotel provides very nice lunches and dinners made my stay comfortable, despite the illness.

Room Tip: The separate apartments outside the main building are nice, with an equipped kitchen, but very cold...

The wonderful location at the bank of Rijn, the nice walk to the Lorentz Center and to the center of Leiden. A very friendly personnel, a cozy bar with the live FIFA World Cup. A peaceful room with no noise.
