Good hotel with friendly staff, rooms are spacious and luxurious. During Covid pick up your food from reception to eat in your toom - food is tasteful and well proportioned.

Avoid a room in te front of the hotel - the road is used for racing by local heavies, and it led to sleepless nights.

We stayed here for one night as part of a cycling tour of the Netherlands. We found the location perfect for exploring Leiden and the hotel had a secure area for storing bicycles at the rear of the hotel, which we noticed had charging points for e-bikes. The welcome and service was good throughout. Our room was clean and comfortable.

We recently spent a night here in a 'suite'. Friendly welcome at the reception.

The room at first glance nicely decorated. But, after a closer look, some furniture looks cheap. Scratched surfaces of the bedside tables for example. Great bed. Spacious bathroom with a fantastic bath. No real mini-bar, but good coffee and tea facilities. The room was also clean. Window overlooked a flat roof and the walls of other buildings.

Had dinner in the restaurant in the evening. Nice food and good service. The breakfast was fine. Okay arranged and no crowds.

Room service only free of charge between 22:00 - 23:00. Outside these times it costs € 7.50 extra. A missed opportunity if you ask me. The tip to offer room service free of charge in any case during the Corona pandemic.

Unfortunately I did not sleep well. Outside was a generator (part of construction works around the hotel) that made a lot of noise.

The location of the hotel is good. Parking is available at the hotel at a favorable rate.

Would we come here again? Yes, maybe. Would I choose the suite again? No. I missed the 'more luxurious' feeling here. Unfortunately.

when you book the most expensive room in a 4star rated hotel you might expect something. Unfortunately the room didn't meet our expectations. Left overs in the fridge of the previous guests, hair in the shower, Dirt on the floor. King size bed looked gpod but there were holes in the sheets. Firealert was covered. If I was a manager I would at least check my toprooms before lettting guests in. Great TV!

Reasonable hotel, very close to train station, so easy for commuting. Nice staff at reception,. The room was very small and was expensive for the size, price did not include breakfast which made it a feel even more expensive.

We were spending one night on Friday at this hotel, we went directly to the car park behind the hotel and could later park our car in their covered parking. Our dag received a nice little attention, the room was very spacious, and although quite basic our stay was enjoyable. The Breakfast was ok, checking & checkout went fast.

Stayed there for a few days for a business trip, the hotel is very well located near the Leiden central station and walking distance from the canal, shops etc. The room a business suite was spacious enough however, I would say the cleaning was not up to scratch, bins sometimes emptied rug never hoovered and kind size bed not comfortable, mattress needs to be changed. However, it was manageable. I had a late flight the last day and enquired about staying extra hours at reception. I was granted an hour for free after check out paid was informed it would be 10 euros per hour after that. When I presented at reception the last day, the price has gone up to 18 euros per hour, without any explanation. I didn’t expect that for customers staying in their business suite which I would not recommend. So decided to stay in the bar in the lobby where staff were friendly and helpful. I would stay in a different hotel the next time.

We visited Netherlands to go to several places, and Leiden was a convenient, central location. The Golden Tulip was recommended by a friend and his advice was perfect. The hotel is one block from the train and bus station so it was easy to travel to Amsterdam, Delft, (by train) and Keukenhof gardens (by bus). Public transportation in the Netherlands is easy, inexpensive, comfortable, and convenient and you get to see the country-side!
The hotel was very comfortable and our room was spacious. The bed was so comfortable and we slept well every night. We registered for breakfast every morning and that was varied and tasty. Staff service was very friendly and helpful and the restaurant was excellent and not expensive. We walked around Leiden the first afternoon, then all day at Keukenhof gardens the next day. Then three days in Amsterdam to see the sights and the Rijksmuseum. A canal boat tour in Amsterdam was fun and informative. A great vacation and the Golden Tulip hotel was a perfect, central location.

We had an excellent stay in the hotel. First of all, we are grateful to the hotel that we were afforded the opportunity to book the rooms using the payment for original reservation from April 2020 when we could not come due to COVID-19. Although it was not our first time in Leiden, it was our first experience with this hotel and it was very positive. Friendly staff, clean and spacy rooms, comfortable location. I would recommend this hotel to others and will be happy to come here again.

Do you have parking?
Answer from GoldenGreenHotels
Leiden, The Netherlands5 contributions
Dear Martin, thank you for your question. We have a parking lot and a garage at our disposal, so we always have enough parking spaces. Parking is €17,50 per night and a reservation is not needed for a parking space. The best way to reach our parking lot is to put “Anthony Fokkerweg” into your navigation system, and you will end up at the backside of our hotel where both parking lot and garage are situated. To enter the garage you will need a chip which can be picked up at the reception. With kind regards, Amal - Front Office
