No hotel can please every guest. For me, "Like" list of this hotel is longer than "Dislike".
Environment - Location (just next to Central Station).
Room & Facility - Handheld showerhead + Rainfall shower / Comfortable bed & pillows.
Room & Facility - Bath towels are bit small in size and not soft and puffy enough; in considering the hotel is only several months old, so I would say the towels' quality not one of the best / No kettle & coffee-maker in room / Room temperature being fixed at 21°C not adjustable or cannot be turned off.
Tips & Comments for other travelers:
Hotel environment - Hotel is integrated in a commercial complex. When you enter the building, you don't see a hotel lobby and there is none. Front desk is situated in a room at the building's lobby; like a shop.
Gym facility - Hotel guests do not entitle free access the whole day just before 10 am daily (I never use hotel gym so it does not border me).
No mini-bar in room - It does not border me also as I never consume anything from a hotel-room. There is a convenient store inside the Central Station just next to the Hotel and there is a large supermarket just acrossed the road other side of the Central Station. You will have many more choices economically there than a hotel mini-bar can offer.
Breakfast buffet - There are not many choices but fine for me. As breakfast is optional, it is up to our own choice whether it there or outside.
Dinner at Level 10 - If you imagine having dinner while enjoying nice city view, this would not be the scenario because dinning tables are not by the window side, it is the lounge area being set by the windows. Besides, Leiden is a small old city, looks flat from birdeyes' view and probably not much light at night. However, the food quality is quite good though the menu is short.
If you are like me visiting Leiden for sightseeing, you would probably like this Hotel as I do.
If you are someone who likes staying in a hotel room, sitting in a couch with a shot from mini-bar in the room, or if you enjoy doing gym and swimming in a hotel rather than stretching your legs outside, then you may want to consider another hotel.
For me, If I revisit Leiden again, Hamsphire Leiden Fitland will be my first choice.
By the way, Hamsphire Leiden Fitland or Fitland Level Leiden, which is your official name?
