“Decent, clean, new business hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2013

This is a very new Hilton Garden Inn, with underground parking, next to the highway and to Leiden University and biotech hub. Great place for business stays, probably the best for Leiden area overall.

Nice spacious lobby and restaurant.
Very friendly service.
Nice rooms, bathroom clean, basic, but everything you need.
Very nice breakfast, only missing thing is alternatives for people with food allergy (gluten or lactose intolerance)

You might want to ask a room away from the highway if you are a light sleeper.

The hotel is quite new, with very forthcoming staff. The rooms are quite adequate for business traveler, with free WiFi and coffee.
I commuted to Amsterdam from this hotel for over a week, with several colleagues, and none had any negative comment during our stay.

This hotel was new when we stayed there in May 2013. The rooms were on the small side but very well appointed and clean and modern. There was free wifi and coffee making facilities in the room.

The staff were very attentive and helpful.

There was free undercover secure parking.

The only negative thing was that the hotel was difficult to find as the road signage was not clear and to access it we had to drive through the University campus which is close by.

It was situated right next to the CORPUS museum so if you follow the signs for that you will arrive at the hotel.

Dear MsMegane,

Thank you very much for your great review.
For a potential next stay you might also want to try our 35m2 de Luxe rooms, for just a little more comfort.
Thank you for pointing out to fellow travellers to follow the CORPUS museum sign in order to find the hotel best. We are still negotiating with local authorities to improve our signage.

We all look forward to welcome you back to our hotel again.

Yours Sincerely,

Although this hotel is not located in the center of town, it is a short walk to the bioscience business center/office park, and Leiden University and Medical Center. I didn't have a chance to visit Corpus, but heard from colleagues that the museum was awesome.

The hotel staff was quite friendly and helpful. They immediately and satisfactorily corrected a HUGE reservation error (basically my weeklong stay had been cancelled), helped me figure out a WiFi issue and stayed on top of my ground transportation requests.

The accommodations are modest, but spotless and comfortable. I attended a meeting one of the hotel's main conference rooms, which was booked on very short notice. Everything was handled professionally and with care. There was some construction taking place, which became a bit of a distraction.

The breakfast and lunch buffet offerings were quite good. The bar selections were great, as was the set-up (fireplace, deep cushioned seating, television) in the lobby.

Dear SRNYCMetro,

Thank you so much for your review on Tripadvisor.
The hotel is just opposite the Bioscience park and indeed, the next door museum CORPUS is an unique experience and worthwhile to visit.
Thank you for your compliments to the hotel staff, which naturally I will share with them. They will appreciate this very much.

We all hope to welcome you back again and I wish safe future travels.

I travel to Leiden several times a year and I am also a Hilton Gold Card member. So, I figure I should try out the Hilton Garden. I arrived in Leiden from Chicago in the morning. Check in was effortless, but I didn't have too many choices of rooms. Either on the level of the parking or overlooking the highway on the rear side. I took the highway side. The room was surprisingly very quiet; no noise from the cars on the highway. The room was modern, spacious with many amenities. The bathroom was also modern, with a wonderful shower. As I have come to expect the shower has super hot water, high pressure, and precision controls. The bed has the business class comforter and mattress so my sleep was sound. Also, the room was spotless clean with very efficient housekeeping. The food is also quite nice at the hotel. The night I checked in I just dropped down to the lobby to eat dinner with a friend at the bar. The cod, risotto, and asparagus dish I ordered was very, very fresh and prepared quite well. Likewise, the buffet breakfast has many choices of cold dishes, fruit, breads, eggs, etc. Service was also good at the hotel. I had problems with my company computer and internet access and the hotel quickly arranged for a technical expert from the internet provider to help me. Now for the location: My business is in the Biotech Park in Leiden which is a nice 15 minute walk. I pass horses and pasture along the way. However, to get to Leiden center you must either bicycle or order a taxi for 13 Euros. There is nothing of interest out that way on the outskirts of Leiden.

Room Tip: Higher floors, on opposite side of the highway

My colleagues and I stayed here for business, while we attended a conference (WordCamp Europe) in Leiden. The hotel was a little outside the centre, but we hired bikes and this made for a very pleasant way to get around. The staff could not have been more helpful.
