(This review is tardy, but I feel like this place is worth pointing out.)
We chose this place because it was conveniently located halfway between the Amsterdam airport and The Hague. Reservations were easy to make and we confirmed pick-up service from the airport.
Our airline ended up running significantly late, causing much back and forth with the hotel about our estimated arrival time--they were very accommodating right up to our last minute changes and were waiting right there when we arrived from the states.
The original plan had been to visit The Hague to enjoy Prince's Day but because of the travel delays, that plan was scrapped. Instead, we used our remaining time to walk around this quiet town--there's not a lot to do in Leiden, which is part of the appeal--even stumbling upon a great little restaurant with superb hospitality.
It can be difficult when you don't speak the language but the staff at Barones are easy to communicate with and made us feel more than welcome. We recommend it to anyone wishing to stay in a location convenient to Amsterdam but not in the center of everything and for experiencing the people of The Netherlands.

This tiny hotel (only 5 rooms) overlooks an interesting canal basin in a quiet part of Leiden, yet only a few minutes walk from the centre of the town. The welcome, by the cheerful and helpful Guido, was warm. Our room, on the second floor with a view over the canal basin was huge with a high beamed ceiling and every amenity including an espresso maker. The bathroom was also large and well appointed. Decor was grand. There is a lift. Breakfast seemed to be slightly portion controlled and the coffees were strong but tiny, served in the cup. A refill was forthcoming from Guido, but we would have preferred a pot of coffee. My omelette was tiny with only a few slivers of mushroom. There was a buffet with some fresh fruit and cheese, croissants etc, but it did seem rather thin. The overall experience was lovely and we slept well, but breakfast was a little disappointing.

We stayed here for two nights and found the room comfortable and spacious.
It is situated on a canal though our room faced a roof with an attempt at a rooftop garden; not wow!, but quiet.
The breakfasts were good with an adequate spread.
Unfortunately, their lift is out of order and the staircase is, like most canal houses, is very steep especially with lugging luggage.

Dear Chris,

Thank you so much for your review. We are glad to read your stay was comfortable!
Our lift needed to be renovated and unfortunately it was during your stay. Our staircases are (especially in comparative to regular Dutch staircases) not steep at all. But our staff always helps to get the luggage up, so you do not have to carry it. You can always contact the reception to ask for assistance.

Hope to see you again in the future

Came to see the tulips. This turned out to be an ideal location. A lovely town and Amsterdam and The Hague easily accessible. But this hotel made the trip special. All the people were friendly and helpful. Our room was delightful and the hotel has everything you need. Nothing is too much trouble. The location is quiet and it's lovely to have breakfast by the window as all the bicycles go by. I have no hesitation recommending this hotel and will certainly return if our travels ever bring us this way again. Thank you for a lovely stay.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this rather elegant, classy and spacious accommodation.
This was a very pleasant location with our room overlooking the canal.
The staff provided a very efficient, friendly and yet a personal service. We enjoyed our stay so much that we have bought vouchers for our two adult children and their respective partners to have a three day at the hotel.
Lorenzo, the general manager was helpful throughout our stay.
This hotel has to be seen to fully appreciated!
