“Great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

The hotel was reasonably good for the cost. The room was spartan but very clean as were the common areas. Breakfast was very good and the staff were unfailingly helpful, polite and pleasant.

The location was the best thing about the hotel, right across from the station and only a five minute walk into town.

I have always thought of Ibis as on a par with Holiday Inn but this with hotel it appears Ibis have decided to plunge down market as I feel it equates to Travelodge.
The hotel only opened in May2011 so still has a newness about it which has not had time to be eroded yet.
Reception staff were helpful and I was directed to the 5th floor.
On entering the double room I was struck by how cramped it was, the bed taking up all the space, yet there was nothing in the room other than the bed. The ability to make a hot drink after a long trip would have been pleasant but there probably wasn't space for a kettle!
Breakfast was very poor with a limited choice including the slices of cheese with curling corners & no toaster. Price for this offering was a most unreasonable €15.
Back to the Golden Tulip on my next visit.

Room Tip: My room faced the rail station but I am a heavy sleeper. If you sleep light, best to check.

Come out of Leiden Station and the Ibis Hotel is opposite as you look to your right. The buses
stop in front of the station and it is possible to get to Amsterdam or Keiukenhof in 30 minutes.
The hotel room on the 5th floor had a lovely view of a windmill. There was a comfortable double bed, tea making facilities and shower room. Clothes storage was adequate for a few days.

The buffet breakfast was very nice, no bacon but plenty of everything else. The staff all spoke English and were extremely polite and helpful. It was easy to stroll out of the hotel and turn either left or right into the centre of Leiden. Canals to walk alongside and plenty of restaurants, bars and a Saturday market. Definitely an alternative to Amsterdam.

the ibis leiden center is great place to stay which is right across the train & bus station. i stayed there in mid april and it is very convenient to get a bus to kuekenhof and train to amsterdam. the staff were extremely polite and helpful with answers for every question I had. a stroll to the main street gets you to tons of restaurants from italian, surinamese, indonesian, chinese,etc..i recommend this hotel to anyone planning to visit the tulip fest. try the fries place in the station, the best.

Room Tip: choose the higher floors for a nice view

Got to browse a lot of hotels around Leiden Centraal Station then found this hotel & booked it for a night without much good expectation just to surprised my loving wife for our 25th wedding anniversary, my wife loves Tulips then I decided to book a hotel near to Train Station to bring her to Keukonhof early Saturday morning. We are coming from Frankfurt, Germany to Schiphol and we will be checking in late then called them in advance told them what will be the situation, my wife told me when we arrived to LCS from airport - "this is cool, very close to train station and very modern". Our room in 5th Floor with a view of the famous windmill in Leiden-my wife's so excited and surprisingly saw the bottle of red wine- on the house, with pink Tulip flowers placed in a very big vase & she can't help it suddenly hugged me whispered to my ear, " I love You & Thank You...! Kissed her back and the back of my mind Thank You Leiden Staff- you are so great Guys ... You made our stay so memorable we will definitely go back and would highly recommend you to our peers...! Keep up for being nice, this hotel is clean, very elegant room- it's true now I believe " that the Dutch People were among the handsome & beautiful inside & out... And God created the World but you (Dutch) created Holland not only for yourselves but for everybody to share your kindness & hospitality..!

Really a good Quality/Price ratio: easy to get there from the airport with train, near to the center of Leiden, rooms simple but well organized and really clean. Despite the station is really quiet in the night. Good buffet for breakfast and nice and efficient staff.

I stayed at Ibis hotel for 3 nights during Leiden medical students congress (LIMSC 2013). I wanna say if u want to be close to everything this is a smart choice for u !
Leiden central is only on ur 2 min walk! same as LUMS (university and hospital of Leiden) !which was only 2 min far from there!
the service for breakfast was nice!receptionists were polite and helpful!rooms were in a normal size!
but I guess for double rooms the beds were too close to each other! TOO CLOSE !
if u go there u will get what i mean ;) plus that there were no locker in the room! I mean real lockers!
to sum up it deserve being in top of Leiden hotels!:D but they can be better if they reduce their price a little bit ....
