Location can't be beat as it's in the middle of the city centre. Room was basic and clean everything in there you need. I understand room is not ready at 11.30AM, but if they could have brought the luggage to the room when it was ready it would be a better stay. Now I had to wake someone up at...

After a day of cycling we were looking forward to a best western stay. But we were disappointed. Wifi was down, our room safe was broken. Inquiries at the front desk were met with shrugs. Our room was small, but quaintly furnished with large antique furniture. Overall, it was clean and adequate.

We stayed here for two nights whilst we were on our Pearls of Holland cycling tour. Our room was on the top floor overlooking a church, which is an easy landmark to aim for when you are looking for the hotel. Our room was quite old fashioned with a bed that creaked every time one of us moved. The air...

Budget hotel, about 1 km from Leiden Central station. Nearest public transport is 200 m. Hotel offers nice continental breakfast, but no lunch or dinner. Little inconvenient since no good restaurants nearby. Room and bathroom are clean and comfortable. Overall value for money.

Stayed for one night. We had an issue with making the reservation, as Expedia didn't work and the confirmation from the hotel was not out in the system. Receptionist very apologetic and sorted the family room for the two of us, which has two double beds. The shower gets really wet, but there are plenty of towels to deal with...

Apart from the good location (being close proximity to the train station and to good shopping), this hotel doesn't have many more positives. It's also close by a big church, whose bells ring on every hour and half hour right through the night. Limited my sleep that's for sure. The bed is poor quality - the matteress is smaller than...

If you want to stay in the center of Leiden and you are searching for a budget friendly hotel, Best Western could be an option. Small rooms with old furniture but at least they are really clean. The breakfast is basic. It is a decent hotel that has room for improvement...

The interior is looking a bit old (noted here before). The people at reception were nice. The room had a bit odd layout and due to a small step the beds couldn't be pushed completely against the wall so you couldn't sit on the bed to use your laptop or watch the TV. Bathroom was fine, although care had to...
