“The perfect spot for a visit to next door neighbor 'CORPUS'”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

This hotel is ideally located next door to the CORPUS building. That is an attraction for young and old with a trip through parts of the human body. It is educational and fun. After the 55 minute trip, you have all the time you want in the multi story building to explore certain human body parts more and to test your own body. You can even get a printout and e-mail about your BMI, body fat percentage, blood pressure and the like. The main attraction of the hotel is its location next to CORPUS, but the hotel itself is a fine place to stay. We really liked the breakfast and have even enjoyed a dinner the night before. The hotel is new and modern. We also like the bed (no middle division!). We would stay here again. It is a pity that the navigation to the hotel is somewhat tricky and that most of the plots of land around the hotel and CORPUS have not yet been developed. A big sand pit is your view.

Dear WorldTravelOne,

Thank you for your sharing your experience with fellow travellers. Indeed, CORPUS is a great and unique experience and worthwhile to visit.
As the hotel is fairly new, only the latest navigation versions have the correct address. We always advise our guests, just to follow the signs CORPUS. This huge landmark cannot be missed.

Currently the local authorities are working very hard to improve the area in front of the hotel. By the end of the month it should be all finalized.

Thank you again for your review and we all hope to welcome you back again.

Yours Sincerely,
Sjoerd Sybesma

Great hotel, great people, a little off the beaten track. Despite sending pre-arrival e-mails, website explanations, etc., etc. this hotel is still very difficult to find. Who would think that the access road to the hotel is actually a one way, one lane access road to a construction site ? Additional signage on surrounding roads would be very welcome. ( I realize that the hotel will have to deal with local regulations on this......which in the Netherlands is very difficult , I understand ). Would definitely recommend this hotel. Great breakfast...

Dear Paul W,

Thank you so much for your great review, I will make sure to share this with all team members.
Indeed it is a battle with the local authorities to get road signs arranged. Since the opening 2 years ago, I am still negotiating with the several departments. Eventually we will succeed.

Thank you again and we all hope to welcome back again, one day to HGI Leiden.

Yours Sincerely,

I've in this hotel now for the 8th time, and the quality seems to improve every time. It was good at the beginning, when the hotel opened, but now it is even better, since all processes are well under control. Check-in, speed in restaurant, all facilities, everything is excellent.

Not sure if this place wants to be a hotel or corporate HQ - it's perfectly OK if you want clean and efficient. Out of the town and little personality, so I wouldn't choose it for anything other than a one night business trip.

The hotel was very close to the motorway. Though the construction outside the hotel made the outside not so nice, the interior of the hotel was very nice. The staff was fantastic and most concerned with all the guests comfort. We had breakfast and it was very nice and the hotel dining room provided an excellent dinner.
With the free parking and free internet service, the value for the money was spot on.

Excellent hotel!!! Had a very pleasant stay.

The good:
Free car parking. Free internet. Big room. Window from floor to ceiling.Reception staff etc., etc.

Not so good:
Breakfast! Choice quite poor . Quality of food/cooking must be improved. Breakfast restaurant personnel - 2 shifts, totally different attitude service.
One shift clean tables immediately and prepare it for next customer (particularly on May 08,2014).
Second shift day before - tables were staying uncleaned for at least half an hour. People had no place to sit as all was dirty. Standards should be kept.

Tissue box in the bathroom! - We were making fun together with my wife and betting if it will be changed next day or not....day by day during whole our stay :))) The thing is that every day there were put only 3-4 tissues in the tissue box, at the very top to look like it is full. But actually there were no more than 3-4 of them :)))

Maybe If we would stay just 1-2 days, we wouldn't recognise these things, so enjoy the good hotel for a short stay.

All in all I would highly recommend this hotel both for business and family stay!!!

Room Tip: Big rooms, free wifi, free parking. Perfect choice if travelling by car. Next door to Corpus science...

We stayed here on a short weekend, main destination was Keukenhof and Amsterdam. The location is very good. The hotel is located in a new area being developed and there is a human body science museum right next to it. The kids liked it. The room was comfortable enough for 5 people, and the restaurant services were really good. We had breakfast and dinner at the hotel during our stay.
Selecting this hotel should be a no brainer, save yourself research time, and just book it. I definitely recommend this hotel.

Easy access to highway, and short distance to both locations mentioned. You can also use mass transit to Amsterdam if you don't want to drive there. I drove and did not have any issues with finding a parking spot inside city limits.
