The dining hall is like a stadium. Plenty of dishes for breakfast. Which one to take which one to leave. So many so many. Fruits, Juices, biscuits... More

I stayed overnight after a long trip from southern Africa. The beds are great, the room is spaceous and the location - if you don't mind being smack in the center of the city, is fine. Ample parking. There are bikes for rent to get into town, or take a walk (30 mins) or the bus which drops you off... More

We stayed at this Holiday Inn for a business meeting. The room was noted as "Executive". Unfortunately it was somewhat small (but passable) and the carpet required serious cleaning or likely replacement. The shower was difficult to negotiate and the bath area not large enough for 2 people. There was supposed to be a shuttle from the Leiden Centraal train... More

Or you could take a bus from Leiden Central Train station which takes about 10mins (3 stops), but requires a short walk. There is a free hotel-shuttle from the hotel to the... More
