“Friendly service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

I stayed at this hotel for a 2-week business trip, most of which I spent in the bed with some illness. The staff was always helpful to me, everyone speaks English, internet works, etc. That all and the fact that the hotel provides very nice lunches and dinners made my stay comfortable, despite the illness.

Room Tip: The separate apartments outside the main building are nice, with an equipped kitchen, but very cold...

The wonderful location at the bank of Rijn, the nice walk to the Lorentz Center and to the center of Leiden. A very friendly personnel, a cozy bar with the live FIFA World Cup. A peaceful room with no noise.

This van der Valk hotel in Leiden is definitely the best one I visited in Leiden:
- sufficient free parking
- free wifi
- nicely situated next to a canal - great terrace
- very good and spacey restaurant; correct pricing. Service could be a bit better.
- great breakfast
- cosy bar with plenty of beer choices. Service here was however very bad: slow and unfriendly.

The rooms are well equipped (coffee maker, etc). While it is modern and seems recently renovated, I never saw such an ugly carpet.

Nice location but be aware that some rooms are adjacent to a busy commuter road which makes use of the balcony less attractive. Breakfast was fine, dinner very good except for the tournados and beefsteak (i am used to a better quality). Staff very attentive and helpful. Outside patio wonderful when the weather permits.

I can highly recommend this hotel for company meetings / functions. The company I work for use the meeting facilities on a regular basis and the service/facilities on offer are first class. The surroundings are also very pleasant, the atmosphere good and the staff very friendly.

We choose this hotel because its lie adjacent to the canal for a one night stay.
The staff was kind, the rooms clean and comfortable, the hotel has an environment sparing policy.
We enjoyed the very acceptable breakfast, sitting outside and looking at the boats, which were passing by. Bikes can be hired and very nice bicycle routes can be started from the hotel.

I stayed here in March 2014 during a one-week workshop at the nearby Leiden University. This was a great hotel with very comfortable and clean beds, but the rooms adjacent to the road experience noticeable road noise in the early morning. Nevertheless, I had a great stay and will most certainly stay here if ever back in Leiden.
