Reviewed April 1, 2013

The hotel is conveniently located next to the railway station and also the old city of Leiden. The stuff in the hotel lobby was friendly. The room was clean and the bed comfortable but otherwise not so special. There were no small towels so you had to use the late ones for your hands and face.

We were very pleased with our one night stay but for a longer stay we would have preferred a larger room . The location is excellent with respect to visiting the historical area and also suited us in being so close to the railway station.

Clean and functional are the words that sum up this hotel but it lacks style, atmosphere and some of the small but important touches of comfort which are valued by mnany customers. I can only imagine that the Ibis finance director sat downwith an executive from Ikea to discuss their ideal hotel - and this was the result.

Our bedroom had no carpet, just mock wooden block floor; no cupboards only shelving; no drawers; well-worn towels which were too small; just one spare electric socket close to the window; only enough tea and coffee for two drinks each; paper cups; no shampoo or hand towels. The one chair in the room would not be out odf place in a school classroom! For business people standing overnight all this would be sufficient but for those on a three-day break or longer it is very basic.

Avoid the breakfast. At 15 euros it is twice what you would have to pay at one of the cafes close-by. I was also concerned that the name of all guests with room numbers and the companies they represent are prominently featured on a list near the breaklfast. You are expected to 'sign in' but seeing my name and room number publically displayed seems a gross infringement of my privacy and defies the principles of security. And my wife and I were not even breakfast in the room rate!

Sadly, there are too many hotels like the Ibis those which lack charm but charge top rates. Avoid them if you want to stay for a few days and enjoy some luxury and comfort. Tidy, certainly. Clean without question. Unfortunately, it lacks the one thing some of us really appreciate - style..

Great location, near the VVV (tourist information centre), Leiden Railway and Bus station, no car needed really, but there is a carpark at the back - easy walking distance to everything. Walk the Rembrandt walk which will give you a good overview of Leiden itself and comes past most important buildings/areas.

just stayed in the ibis leiden centre.The hotel is great value for money and well located to the railway station.Also it was immaculate, and ideal as a base.There are a few supermarkets beside it and you can walk to the centre of leiden very quickly from here.The staff were very helful and we were able to get checked in to the room immedeiately when we arrived,I had mistakenly booked a double instead of a twin and the girl on reception changed it without any problems.Would recommend this hotel, its staff and its cleanliness, also fantastic value for money

Room Tip: probably better with a room at the back which overlooks private flats no noise at all even in the co...

Clean, modern hotel, with large shower by European standards. Bed was new and very comfortable with a proper box spring. There was also a breakfast with scrambled eggs, bacon and the typical European fare as well. Convenient to train and I didn't find that there was a noise issue. Room was very well sound-proofed. Flat screen TV for those that care.

Stayed three nights at the Ibis Leiden Centre, nice bright and modern hotel very convenient for travelling to and from the Airport. The room was very clean and staff helpful.i pre paid in advance at a rate of 62 euro per night which was very good value. The train and bus Station are right by the hotel and journey's to places further afield if you wish to other cities such as Amsterdam Centre 40 minutes, The Hague, 15-20 minutes and Delft 15 minutes can be easily made, although Leiden has plenty to offer. Would recommend this hotel.
