We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful boutique hotel. It is a beautiful, very typical old dutch house which still has unique old elements. The breakfast was delicious and had everything we could wish for. Moreover, Gaston and his team are very friendly and we felt very much at home. We can definately recommend the private boat trip which... More

Can't recommend more. Went away for a weekend with my brother to explore a new city. Leiden has much to offer and the hotel is situated in perfect location. we were picked up, checked in and shown where to within 30 mins. Would go back to Leiden and book the same hotel without question.

I was sick during my stay. the people are really helpful and friendly to make it as comfortable as possible. I would love to stay there again one day when I am not sick. Every detail is thought about and paid attention to in the hotel. And you can see and feel the love thats in it!

Small and charming boutique hotel, merely five rooms located a few minutes walk from the historical center of Leiden. No reception, individual rooms in an old merchants dwelling. Great breakfast served by a friendly and service-minded cook. A bit like staying in a home in a nice neighborhood. Spacious and calm rooms, modern bath rooms. Parking can be an issue... More

I spent two nights in room 4 (the hotel only has four btw) and I enjoyed every second in this amazing XVI century house. Beautifully decorated, very intimate as well, you really feel like one member of the rich family living there and having tea or chocolate in the amazing living room on the first floor. Rich and fine breakfast,... More

Great place - we were in the Loft for 6 nights. Yes - it has Dutch stairs (typical of that era home)... The hosts were very available and fast to help when needed. Things were clean and we had everything needed for a very nice week in Leiden.

We were so impressed with this small boutique hotel located on a canal in a quite part of the city. Our room No. 1 was on the ground floor adjacent to the lobby which was fantastic considering we had large bags, there is no elevator and the stairs extremely steep. Being greeted by the owner was also very personal and... More
