A lovely, newly-built hotel just on the outskirts of Leiden. This was the first time I'd visited the city for pleasure, having travelled there on a number of occasions for business. Therefore I knew the hotel location was walkable from the city centre. It had actually been snowing quite a lot at that time, and I can say that the walk was still fine even in low temperatures and a bit of the white stuff!
The room was clean and spacious, modern furnishings and very comfortable indeed. There were no issues with noise, even with the hotel being next to quite a busy road.
The staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful. We ate lunch there on one of the days. It was a bit pricey, but good quality, and it saved us a longish walk to find another place to eat.
I'd definitely recommend this hotel to anybody visiting Leiden - and for business travellers visiting the university or any of the scientific companies in the nearby science park and incubators, this is a great location.
