We (2 adults + 2 kids) stayed at the Holiday Inn Leiden for one night only. It was just before our flight back home. The hotel is located not far from highway A44 and about 20 minutes from Schiphol Airport. The city of Leiden is just 5 minutes from the hotel (by car) and you will find there many restaurants...

Dear guest, Thank you for your comments. It's really nice to hear you and your family enjoyed your stay with us. Although it is rather common in Europe, we do have a sign near the sauna entrance requesting guests to respect children being present in the pool area and also to respect various cultures. We offer a very extended breakfast...

We were a family of 4 (parents and 2 adult children in their early 20s) traveling to Holland to visit the Keukenhof tulip gardens. Due to prices of rooms, we did not want to get two separate rooms, so we got a double/double room. For one night, it was not a bad situation, so we really cannot complain, but larger...

We have stayed here before so there is that level of comfort. Breakfast was ok, the salmon smelled very fishy so I did not eat it.
