4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stayed at the Holiday Inn for three nights, combining a trip to Leiden with the Keukenhof Gardens. I originally booked a different hotel in the city centre but circumstances meant that I had to make my trip a week earlier than planned. The first hotel was fully booked for the new date so I stayed here instead. I know... More

As Holiday Inns go, it is OK, but the location is somewhat inconvenient if you don't have a car. Even if you do, parking in Leiden is problematic and expensive. There are no restaurants within easy walking distance (except for a McDonalds about a 5 minute walk away), and while there is a bus stop that connects directly with the... More

Good morning Grace, Thank you, nice review. Our location is very good, we're centrally located between Amsterdam, The Hague and Rotterdam, very near the beautiful beaches and the famous Keukenhof, also within 10 mins in Leiden (or as often called mini Amsterdam).

The hotel is very spacious and airy with rooms on three levels opening onto a very large atrium housing the dining areas, etc. The hotel is obviously aimed at business guests with meeting and conference rooms but it also suited our tour group well. Breakfasts offered a wide choice.

I stayed here, whilst travelling to visit my student daughter. Easy bus ride from the station and town. Lovely room, on the outside of the building. This would be my recommendation for future bookings. The hotel appears very family friendly with lots of parking. The restaurant is in the centre of the hotel, with lots of plants, pools and very...

We were pleasantly surprised. This hotel is excellent when travelling with younger children. There is plenty to do in the area, like visiting the beautiful beaches of Katwijk or Scheveningen. But when you get back to the hotel it's very nice that there are kids activities while the parents can relax. We went during high season and they had an... More

Had a slight problem on arrival which was quickly dealt with, the reservation made over the phone had somehow become downgraded from my expected room quality.

The hotel location is great as central place to stay and go travel on the western side of Holland (and also for the central part). The breakfast is fair and good. The only problem I encountered are the "double" beds - they are not really suitable for two adults.
