Reviewed February 10, 2013

Enjoyed a wonderful stay here (king room). Very friendly staff. Wonderfully updated hotel in a historic building. Very short walk to the downtown canal area for shopping, bars and restaurants. Great price for the deluxe room and valet parking was a good deal. Breakfast was a nice buffet and the multicourse dinner was tasty. Look nowhere else for a room in Leeuwarden.

I stayed here several times when doing business in Leeuwarden. The Post Plaza is definitely one of the nicer hotels in town. The location is great if you want to go to the city center - there are many restaurants and bars in the area. The railway station is still within walking distance (about 10-15 minutes). The staff is friendly, the restaurant offers OK quality for breakfast and dinner.
The room rates are a bit expensive in comparison to other places; especially as some of the standard rooms are really small. You should try to get a good deal on a comfort room or suite. The beds were very soft in all rooms I stayed in, which could be an issue if you prefer a hard matress for a good-nights-sleep. The hotel also has a small gym hidden in the basement (1 treadmill, 2 bikes, 1 stepper, a few resistance machines); the equipment is not the newest.

Room Tip: The hotel is in a historic building, so the layout is different in most rooms. Some of the standard...

We stayed in one of the suites of the hotel which are located near the hotel in a historic house dating 1739. The suite was spacious and well decorated. The location is perfect in the middle of the city center and everything is within walking distance. Food is quite good and I appreciated the great service we got on room service (after the kitchen closed). The staff prepared a lovely dish for us. The price performance ratio is very good for the rooms, food and other services such as valet parking.

Room Tip: We stayed in November so no need for climate control ... but I did not spot it in the room. Might be...

Although only stayed the one night my impression of the hotel is very good. Lovely location in the center of Leeuwarden in easy walking distance of restaurants, bars, shopping and what have you.
Parking nearby or hotel's valet-service
Nice, fresh interior. Friendly staff. rooms appear recent beds a bit soft for my comfort. nice bathroom too. If there was a down-side then that would be the breakfast selection.

We stayed here for one night but were disappointed we didn't arrange to stay longer. The hotel was beautiful and very clean. We enjoyed the charming atmosphere and helpful staff. The location was great and we walked throughout the center from the hotel. The room was larger than we expected based on the pictures we had seen on the Internet. We would definitely stay here again.

Although not in the city centre this hotel is very close to it and very comfortable with great rooms (get one with a balcony). Breakfast is plentyful and service is great at most times. There is a nice spa department in the basement with sauna and jacuzzi. Prices are very competitive.

We booked well in advance so were surprised to see our room was of the smaller sloped ceiling variety. There was no tub, although the shower was very modern. There was no air con. The room was clean and the location is good.
