“Nice hotel with a few flaws”
Reviewed 21 May 2011

Our top-floor "executive" room was nothing terribly special, but acceptable. We had a view toward the back, nothing at all to see, some alleys, but quiet. When we arrived we were told by the very pleasant staff that the elevator was broken. So we lugged our suitcases four flights up -- and got our exercise all weekend. In the room, the toilet seat was a bit askew (the little connector had worked its way out), the combination safe was not operable (but a second key-operated safe was), and the inner sheer curtain in the window fell down when we tried to close it (and was not put back up when the room was cleaned). All those challenges aside, the staff was quite pleasant, the room was generously sized and clean, and the AC worked well. The optional buffet breakfast was pricy. The hotel's location is perfect, easily walkable to the station and close to the charming central square, the Beestenmarkt, with its harbor and canals and boats and restaurants. Definitely see the historic windmill, right near the hotel, while you're there; quite fascinating. We took the Express Bus from the station to Keukenhof Gardens, and that worked perfectly. Leiden is a charming, historic university town (Rembrandt was born there, and the Pilgrims sojourned there for a year before boarding the Mayflower), has quite a few museums, and is well worth a visit.

This charming little hotel is located centrally in Leiden. We were met by helpful and friendly staff members and enjoyed our stay. The room was clean, spacious and the bath room was functional, though quite small. The only negative things I have to note, are the lack of stable WIFI Internet and the rather noisy corridors - a lot of slamming from several doors reduces the sleep quality. Otherwise this was a nice place!

Four nights in this hotel in Feb 2010 and a pleasant stay. Hotel is nice, welcoming staff. However the hotel is a bit too small : limited service, limited choice for breakfast, etc. I feared that rooms would be too small based on TA review but my deluxe room was more than ok. Location is perfect, right in the city center, close to restaurants and citylife. A lot of charm for the hotel building too.

Stayed two nights (Thursday & Friday) before flying back to US. Arrived late, so no problem with room being ready. Upper floor executive room was large for European hotel, and coffee/tea in room was handy. Couldn't get safe to work so they brought up replacement next morning. Breakfast was good, if pricey, 12.5 euros: Cold cuts, eggs and bacon, breads, rolls, juice, milk, coffee, snacks etc. AC worked well and large windows could be open. No problem with any noise. View was neither spectacular nor objectionable. Free wi-fi in lobby, or you could pay a daily charge for a cable for room. Plenty of stores, restaurants etc within easy walk - shopping closes at 6pm. Had a nice, but long, dinner at Crabbert'je around corner. Countryside between Leiden and Schiphol is very scenic. Would stay again.

We stayed here during the day after an overnight train before a night flight. We asked them for a morning check in and they allowed us to do that. We used the hotel as a base during the day to see the town, to relax and to take showers. The hotel is very clean as others say but it is also true that the rooms are small. We had to walk around the double bed. But then hotel rooms in Holland during the high season are expensive and this is one of the lowest priced options in Leiden. Their cafe, located adjacent to the entrance, is actually one of the nicest places to hang out and have a coffee in town. The cafe has free wifi.

The pictures of this hotel on internet do not do it justice. It is very clean and everything is brand new. The staff are very pleasant and go out of their way to help you.It is in a very central location. My brother stayed at the Leiden Hotel and when he saw how nice ours was, he checked out of it and into the Rembrandt. Like, I said on line the photos do not do it justice.

Hotel Rembrandt is in the heart of Leiden a few minutes walk from the train station , main shopping areas and all the attractions Leiden has to offer . The hotel staff are friendly and welcoming , the room i stayed in was a bit small (as is the case in Holland ) but adequate with a decent sized bathroom and was very clean with a comfortable bed .

The Hotel amenities are very good with a good sized bar and cafe/restaurant which serves good food . The decor throughout the hotel is very nice especially in the restaurant area , all in all i had a pleasant stay .
