“Great hotel”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

This is a very nice hotel with beautiful rooms. It is situated in an 16th century, characterful building, and the room we stayed in had nice wooden baulks along the ceiling and a view over the lovely roof terrace. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The room was clean, and the shower was excellent. We choose to have our nice and extensive breakfast in bed, which is a possibility for only a small surcharge. The location is within easy walking distance from town centre, along one of the town's canals.

This is a great hotel with a very good location for avoiding excessive noise and traffic. It is off the (Singel) canal within fairly easy walking for certain sites, e.g. Lakenhal, Rijksmuseum for Folkart. For getting to the university the walk is longer, or take the bus on the street parallel to the hotel to the Witte Singel. For walking to the central train station allow yourself at least 10 minutes.
If steps and elevators are an issue, be aware that the staircases in this apartment are a bit steep. The rewards however, for enjoying a quiet atmosphere make that challenge worthwhile. The kitchenette is very useful; be prepared for a fancy, high-tech electronic cooking stove. The hotel owners were very accomodating, friendly and helpful. We arrived in the middle of the night, and the management made sure someone was there to great us with a smile, help us with our luggage and with our car. Their car park arrangement is very fair and extremely useful.

We just spent over a week at the Huys van Leyden. Our first 8 nights were spent in the studio, which is just around the corner from the hotel The room was very clean and well appointed, if you were wanting to make a meal at all. The bed was very comfortable and with lovely linens. Only wished there had been a couple chairs or a couch to sit and read or relax after a busy day. The location is excellent though and the breakfasts (taken at the hotel) were more than sufficient. We had plans to leave the hotel and move to another town, however plans changed and we were able to rebook into the hotel for our last 3 nights. We were booked into a room at the back, which had a sitting area downstairs and the bedroom upstairs. We had direct access to the terrace from upstairs and loved it. We would sit out there in the evenings and enjoy the quiet.
Can't say enough about the staff, very friendly and helpful. Gaston, thank you for your patience, with my date changes, right up till the end! You were accommodating and understanding.
Overall a wonderful stay in Leiden. Should we return, this is where we will be staying!

We stayed at their apartment which is around the corner from the hotel. For the most part it was a positive stay. This was a last minute reservation so if we could have stayed at the hotel that would have been our preference. Having said that the breakfast was very nice and worth spending the extra $$. We took the city tour which was great and used the taxi service to go to Keukahof for the day. If you have a car ask about garaging it and walk.

I stayed here on my birthday and had the canal facing room. It was an absolutely lovely, beamed room. The staff were friendly. The location was great and Leiden has a lovely atmosphere. Breakfast was plentiful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to stay in Leiden.

We stayed on the ground floor at the back of the hotel. It was ample, quiet and flooded with light.
The staff was terrific. The second floor dining room, overlooking a canal was beautiful with an ample cold breakfast buffet. On the two mornings we were there the chef prepared delicious eggs and bacon in the small kitchen behind the dining room. It was easy to walk everywhere and the restaurant recommendations were good. We parked in their garage which was a bonus for us.

Room Tip: Rear ground floor room was quiet and easy in and out. Stairs to dining room steep, but to be expect...
