I stayed there while attending (and indeed co-organizing) a scientific meeting at Lorentz Center. The Hotel is fine, the rooms clean and appropiate (in spite of being in the basement), the personal are efficient and the Hotel has everything I needed (Wifi, space for working, places for meeting other people, a nice terrace featuring the canal). The location is very...

I stayed here recently whilst attending a workshop at the nearby Lorentz Center at the University of Leiden. The location was good for this; an easy 20 minute walk. It's a bit further from the centre of Leiden, but there is a bus stop right outside the hotel, with buses every 20 minutes during the daytime. The bus journey is...

One of the most terrible hotelrooms I recently stayed in. I am staying here tonight and the room is absolutely disappointing. I've booked the room through booking.com and knowing Van der Valk Dordrecht, sneek and Breda i've mistakenly assumed it was from the same standards. Ow boy was i wrong. First of all if you book this room PLEASE pay...

Pleasant and helpful staff. Nice quiet rooms. Great English breakfast. The dinner menu was good. The dinner quality was reasonable but not great (especially for the price). Pleasant bar. Good for business gatherings.

I stayed at the Hotel Leiden for a conference at the University in the winter. Price was similar to other hotels in the area with breakfast included. Speed of restaurant service was slow by North American standards. A shuttled to the University or downtown would improve the experience.

I loved everything about this hotel. It was very clean, the breakfast was very nice and filling, the room was a good size and the bathroom was bigger than I expected! The staff were also very friendly and were very quick and patient with my requests. I would most certainly stay here again. I did not think the hotel was...

I spent a couple of weeks here while in Leiden for a conference. The hotel is not in the city center, but connection is easy by bus or bicycle. My room was big and cleaned regularly, though I found odd how the (very comfortable) beds were two singles placed side-by-side, even in a twin room. The breakfast was rich and...

Better for travellers by car, not for them whose looking for a good location in the town of Leiden. Parking comfortable, huge rooms, good breackfast. An ideal place just to sleep and travell around. I recommend it.

Very nice modern hotel by the river, staff speaking very good English, good size rooms very clean, and quiet. Only issue we had was the beds (two single placed together)fell in gap several times. Leiden is worth to see nice little town with great cheap sushi bar in the town centre ! :)
