Totally ok, everything you need is here. The rooms are quite old-fashioned and a bit gloomy. The reception area and restaurant are quite charming. The breakfast includes what you need but nothing extra. Very conveniently located in the city center.

Hotel Restaurant Nieuw Minerva is located right in the centre of Leiden between the two main shopping streets. You will find plenty of restaurants and cafés around the hotel for a drink or bite during your stay. The hotel is situated on a quiet canal and is easily accessible by boat. The hotel is located in authentic 16th century canal houses with a rich history. Our hotel is decorated in a friendly, Old Dutch style with a homely atmosphere. The hotels rooms are decorated in various styles. Some rooms are romantic, some classic, others have a Art Deco style and a beautiful bridal suite is available as well.
