Let me start by saying that I much prefer small quirky hotels to the large anonymous international chains - so the Huys van Leyden had a good start.
While attending a trade show in Amsterdam a colleague and myself decided to stay in Leiden to escape the crowds. He found this B&B and we were given the two rooms at the top of the house. These were ideal with high ceilings and a great sense of space. Breakfast is served “in room” with most of it provided in the room’s fridge and warm breads being delivered at your chosen time in the morning. Each room has a coffee maker.
The bed was extremely comfortable and there was plenty of hot water for the shower.
A ten minute stroll along the canal leads you to a large square with a wide range of restaurants for dinner.
The couple who run the Huys van Leyden were very welcoming and helpful. I would have no doubts about returning there again in future.
