I recently relocated to Holland from Eastern Canada to work and booked the Marienpoel hotel for an extended stay while I searched for a permanent apartment. I stayed for about 3 weeks, beginning in mid May, 2013.
The room was great! Very spacious. It had a separate bedroom and a living room (with wood floors) with a table, chairs, sofa and dresser. The ceilings were very high, giving a nice airy feel to the space. Lots of windows so when you are in the room during the day it is very bright. There were also two flat screen TVs, one in the bedroom, another in the living room both with an expanded set of channels (23 channels I believe). It is like a home away from home! Wireless Internet service is free and it works very well, never had a problem, worked like a charm. The room was immaculate and cleaned promptly every day. Towels and toiletries were also changed daily, the cleaning staff did a great job. The hotel is well maintained, during my stay, fresh paint was being applied to the exterior. I found the entrance and hallways were always very clean and free of obstructions. I rented a bicycle (when in Holland…) and there was no problem locking it up in the parking lot. The hotel is in a great location, the Leiden Centraal Station is only a 5 minute walk away and you can catch a train or bus to anywhere from there. I took a train to Amsterdam one Saturday, it was only about 6 or 7 Euros.
Edwin the owner/manager gladly prepared fresh coffee every morning before I went off to work and also went beyond the call of duty to help me during my initial stay in Holland. He helped me find my way around town with helpful tips as to where to go to get a mobile phone, bicycle and other things that I needed. I am also here to stay indefinitely, so he also had other helpful hints as to where to shop for furniture and other things that I will need to set up shop here. He also made some important calls for me in Dutch, making my life easier. In short I was made to feel like family during my stay at the Marienpoel! I highly recommend the Marienpoel.
