We preferred to stay in Leiden for our recent trip to Netherlands, because our main focus was the Tulips. Having had no experience of Holland before, we relied on the 'Holiday Inn' brand and the IHG group to ensure that the quality met our expectations.
We reached the hotel much earlier than the check-in time and the front-desk was kind enough to let us (me, my wife, children aged 5 & 7) check-in by 11. Our rooms were well equipped and well kept. The restaurants had buffet dinner, which was very helpful after a tiring day of sight-seeing. The buffet cost was probably slightly on the higher side, but the fact that kids ate free and that there was a lot of selection of amazing dishes on the offer made up for it! ;-)
If you are using a car in Netherlands, this hotel is very easily accessible. Relying on public transport, we found it was a bit difficult to get to the hotel from the train station. There are many buses available, but finding the right one took us a couple of days. The hotel website suggests to take bus route 43 from leiden centraal, but I found this to be more expensive than taking bus no. 30 or 31. It was more frequent too.
The swimming pool and the kids play area is a big plus for keeping the kids entertained. the pool was open till late too.
