The Holiday Inn Leiden is a solid mid range hotel which if you have access to a car or bicycle is a good choice. If you are relying on public transport the location may be a problem as it is on the outskirts of Leiden and a long walk from the main sites and railway station. It is in good proximity to the university.
I believe that a shuttle to the main station (easy walk to the old town) operates on weekdays however it did not seem to be available on weekends.
The rooms are motel style with the doors giving onto a covered outdoor walkway. This is also the location of the carparking which makes it useful if arriving by car.
The rooms were renovated and in good condition. The bathroom deserves particular praise for being modern, clean and functional. The beds were comfortable and there were a number of different pillow options so you could get comfortable.
The breakfast was relatively simple continental breakfast however, the produce was fresh and there was lots available. The only drawback for coffee lovers is that you had to help yourself from a machine.
The staff were friendly and helpful.
