This was the coolest place we stayed in on our trip to the Netherlands (maybe the most charming place I've ever stayed!). If you can, you MUST try to stay in the unit that used to be the servant's quarters - it's a split level with a small living room space, efficiency kitchen and nice bathroom on the first and lovely bedroom on the second floor. There's a short twisty staircase up to the second floor that might give some trouble but should be no problem for most. The best part is the bedroom has direct access to the shared deck.
We regrettably had only one night in Huys van Leyden, but made the most of it by enjoying the hot tub upon arrival and digging into the very reasonable mini bar snacks and wine. Gaston (?) was also a great host and made us feel very at home. In the morning, we not only had a generous buffet style spread for breakfast, but he took individual orders for omelets and things. We ate like kings/queens in the nicely decorated dining room.
This is also located very centrally along the canals and easily walk-able to shops and restaurants. I really hope to make it back someday!
