We stopped in Leiden on our cycling trip. Beautiful historic city. We had a charming room that had been thoughtfully restored on the top floor A nice mix of classic beams and wood and a view of the canal. Our travelling companions had a ground floor room facing the street hence no privacy if window and coverings open Very attentive...

Unfortunately this was only a one night stay. Gaston and his staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was superb and the breakfast excellent. This is a beautiful old city and well worth a visit.

We found this little boutique hotel via the internet, hidden away from mainstream searches? It is very small, our building I think only housed 4 rooms, there is another building, plus an apartment. It is in quite an historic building and therefore very quaint! We had the ground floor room at the back ( 3 )! It is a two...

This boutique hotel offers beautiful rooms in a quiet area of the city. You can easily walk to the town shopping and tourist areas. The breakfast was excellent with a cook at your disposal to prepare your meal as you wish. The only concern was that our room was situated on the ground floor with a window facing the inner...

This is a very nice hotel with beautiful rooms. It is situated in an 16th century, characterful building, and the room we stayed in had nice wooden baulks along the ceiling and a view over the lovely roof terrace. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The room was clean, and the shower was excellent. We choose to have our...

This is a great hotel with a very good location for avoiding excessive noise and traffic. It is off the (Singel) canal within fairly easy walking for certain sites, e.g. Lakenhal, Rijksmuseum for Folkart. For getting to the university the walk is longer, or take the bus on the street parallel to the hotel to the Witte Singel. For walking...

We stayed at their apartment which is around the corner from the hotel. For the most part it was a positive stay. This was a last minute reservation so if we could have stayed at the hotel that would have been our preference. Having said that the breakfast was very nice and worth spending the extra $$. We took the...

I stayed here on my birthday and had the canal facing room. It was an absolutely lovely, beamed room. The staff were friendly. The location was great and Leiden has a lovely atmosphere. Breakfast was plentiful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to stay in Leiden.
