We only had one night in Leiden, which is our only regret. We stayed in the apartment which would be great for longer stays or families. It was complete with a small kitchen that separated the bedroom from the living room (that I think had a pull out couch). There was a washing machine, drying rack and ironing facilities. The...

We enjoyed Huys van Leyden in late August and are grateful we found it! Lovely 17th century canal house with five unique rooms offering exceptional guest experience. Our room was beautifully appointed with updated classic taste and touches - elegantly authentic. A variety of a la carte breakfast options were available each morning alongside continental breakfast offerings. The location is... More

Clean, comfortable, relaxing hotel. Wonderful service. Very beautiful and well presented. Lovely garden roof terrace with access from our room. Spa and sauna room was a unique touch. Good breakfast, hot food and continental buffet. Ten minute walk from main square. Would most certainly return.

Stayed here for 6 nights in 2 rooms (double and triple for kids) This is more a charming boutique house (5 rooms total) rather than a "hotel" We were very satisfied with the quality of the rooms and service On our arrival we were immediately welcomed by the staff, helped with the parking and directed to our rooms The breakfast...

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
