“Clean but tired”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

Very close to railway station and within easy walking distance of Leiden centre. Lots of choice of eateries nearby which was good as hotel charging 16 euros for breakfast. Room was clean but tired decor. Staff on front desk efficient and friendly.

Quiet hotel that has all you need. Rooms are clean and nice size. Staff is excellent. Breakfast buffet is very nice. Walk 2 blocks to the Leiden train station and minutes to main historic part of town.

We were visiting family in Leiden and chose the Golden Tulip and were very glad we did.

We arrived early in the morning and, although we could not access the rooms they allowed us to check in and leave our bags. When we got back after lunch they had prepared our room and we could go up early.

The room was a reasonable size, although it would not be suitable for anybody other than a couple as the bathroom was very open plan (very little privacy).

We had a room to the rear of the building and it was very quiet. We could hear very little noise from within the building either.

The attached restaurant was excellent for dinner, but I cannot comment on breakfast as we did not eat there.

The Wi-fi was good quality and there were plenty of T.V. channels to suit most languages. When the T.V. did not work one morning we told reception and it was fixed by the time we came back. My one gripe is there were no music or radio channels available.

The location was excellent being close to the station and a short walk into town.

We shall stay there again.

Stayed May 2014

The hotel was convenient to bus and train stations but was still quiet and peaceful. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and well furnished and decorated. The bathroom had a shower but no bath but as the shower was so large and had seats this was no problem. The staff were very friendly and helpful and all spoke fluent English. The restaurant was very elegant, the food was delicious and the menu was very good. We had a wonderful stay in the hotel and it was a very short walk into Leiden which was an attractive town centre.

Room Tip: All rooms seemed equally good.

This hotel is so convenient for visiting the bulbfields as well as Amsterdam. It is spotlessly clean, excellently managed and the staff are really helpful. Also the restaurant serves wonderful food at reasonable prices and the breakfasts have something for everyone.
Leiden is a good place to visit with easy walks nearby and public transport is frequent as well as relatively cheap.

Excellent quality hotel, close to main railway station but quiet. Good size room, pleasant sitting room where we took drinks etc, sumptuous Dutch breakfast, everything ok. Pleasant and intelligent staff. It does to conferences and sometimes the participants can be intrusive to ordinary guests, but we had no problem of that kind.

Great location as others have observed - short walk from station & within easy access to the downtown area. Breakfast wasn't included in our room rate but was totally substantial - many people were observed going up & refilling their plates numerous times & we were greeted by a lovely lady from Bulgaria who made us most welcome! Advise travellers to pre book a rear facing room as otherwise you will be overlooking a main road. Another bonus was free Internet access as we are not rich enough to cart laptop / iPad around so were able to check in / print boarding passes for our return flight from AMS. All the staff were lovely so I would recommend this hotel without hesitation.

Room Tip: as already mentioned ask for rear facing
