pension witte singel

We are looking for a small hotel in the center of Leiden for a 3-4 day visit in May when I will be doing a project at the university. Most of those in the center that are reviewed in Trip Advisor are negative except for the Nieuw Minerva which is booked. The Pension Witte Singel has been recommended. Does anyone have any experience with it?

1. Re: pension witte singel

it's a small pension in a typical old duth house, lying at the witte singel (canal), its's close tot the botanical garden (hortus) and the most famous canal of Leiden (Rapenburg). Friendly staff.

hotel the doelen (Rapenburg) is also nice.

golden tulip has reasonable prices, but is a bit more outside the old city.

The best things about the pension are: 1) its quiet but fairly central location (of course in Leiden everything is easy to walk to regardless of where you stay) and 2) the wireless connection, which was critical for me during my stay in order to get any work done. It is also nice that tea and coffee (although no milk!) are available all of the time, in a separate room upstairs if you fill the kettle from the sink in your room and use the mugs provided there. Classical music in the morning at breakfast is also a lovely little touch. However, overall the pension is fading and basic. The breakfast is acceptable (although the coffee was weak) but there is little choice and the shared bathrooms and showers are out of date and awkwardly situated - although cleaned daily they felt dirty because they were old and small. The furniture in the bedroom was cheap and falling apart and the room was cold. Stay here if you are on a serious budget or can't find someplace with more atmosphere or of a higher quality.
