This Hotel is suated on the campus, outside of Leeuwarden, 15 minutes from city centre. All employees are students and try to do their job well and work for you, very friendly and helpful, the restaurant very good, modern and good wine list.

I stayed for a couple of days in Leeuwarden, at Stenden Hotel. I have no complains about the hotel, except for the location aspect, that is a bit far from the city centre. On the other hand, everything else was excellent, especially the very friendly and helpful staff and also the breakfast.

It was a bit expensive, but worth the money. The room was very big and had anything we needed. The breakfast in the morning was delicious and very well organised. The staff was friendly and professional.

We really enjoyed all of it: the hospitality, the dinner and the breakfast. The room was, though not very special (we had an upgrade), but very much okay. Good beds, curtains, light etc etc. The kitchen is very natural, as well as for dinner as for breakfast. Top stay!
