Room was nice even tough the switch for the light was at the entrance and when in the room, ready to go to be, you have to get up and follow 6 m wall before reaching the bed on the way back. Do not imaging having any light during the night ;-) The night was ok though, even if the...

If you want to visit the vivid city of Leiden and your looking for an affordable place to stay, Best Western could be an option. However, with tiny but tidy rooms, a defective heating in the bathroom and no commands for the lights in the neighborhood of the bed, you can hardly say that the rooms fit 2016 standards. Breakfast...

Can't beat the location in central Leiden. We could walk or bike everywhere from the hotel. The rooms were small (by US standards, normal size for a 3-star European hotel). Breakfast was fine, many options and good coffee. Free wifi was a nice bonus but very spotty. Staff was pleasant. We chose this hotel because we had a car and...

Nice city, very recommended to stay. But hotel is just for bed and breakfast. Bathtub was out of order, WiFi was almost out, hard to find how to tun overall light on. It is nice that students uses the facility for their party, but expect that it will end in the middle of the night and on the morning you'll...

One example which makes the situation clear.the shower leaked into the bedroom due to poor design. This could be easily and cheaply rectified.however it is a longstanding problem they know about it but are not prepared to do anything about it. They do not seem to care, the hotel is full so why should they! Will not be in a...

IN SHORT: I would not particularly recommend this hotel -- there are certainly better alternatives in this price range. IN DETAIL: The rooms are fairly small and basic: most of what you need is there, but it's fairly bare-bones, and not nicely decorated in any way: cheap ikea lamps, bed without a headboard, … Very soft beds. The bathroom is...

Welcome was friendly. Room was a good size but had a strange selection of mismatched furniture including a huge wardrobe with no hanging rail so my suit had to go on the hat stand. Bed was a bit broken but fairly comfortable. View onto central void was not pretty. Room also smelt strongly of disinfectant. Bathroom small with difficult layout...

This hotel has a great location and is picturesque as shown in the photos. The room I had when I stayed was almost like a mini loft apartment with a wooden floor looking out over the rooftops. Two things were disappointing - the breakfast wasn't up to much and the coffee was really weak (I like an espresso based coffee,...
