This holiday inn is a very industrial building -not a bad thing - the rooms are set around a large atrium that contains the restaurant and a small kids play area and a fountain pool with carp and terrapins. With all the greenery the atmosphere is almost tropical in the restaurant. The room was clean and tidy and all you... More

We stopped off here after getting off the ferry as is only a short drive from the port. As always they made us feel welcome. The room was clean and comfortable as always. The buffet diner is always first class with a wide choice for most taste's.

Had it not been for the rather good mattress, I don't think I would not have rated this as "fairly average". But first things first: the location is southwest of the city centre, near the University's business park, not far from a motorway. The architecture of the building itself is a strange mix between motel and hotel, with the rooms... More

Everything was good. My biggest problem here was the location. I had understood it was near to Duinrell which by car it prob was. We walked.

Leiden is a beautiful city and even if the Holiday Inn is not so close to the city center, there are good connections with bus.

Great place kept very well for years. Very convenient and spotless clean. Facilities are great including a fitness center and an indoor swimming pool. Great breakfast and bar. Suitable for a family holiday. If you are with a car you can get almost anywhere with a reasonable drive.

I stayed at the Holiday Inn for three nights, combining a trip to Leiden with the Keukenhof Gardens. I originally booked a different hotel in the city centre but circumstances meant that I had to make my trip a week earlier than planned.
