FOR THE NIGHT.......
This hotel is perfectly situated: you can reach everything that is of importance for you to visit on foot!
A nice, small hotel, with 16 rooms and I am sure that you will be looked after excellently!
The hotel is situated along a canal, because LEIDEN -as AMSTERDAM AND SO MANY MORE CITIES AND TOWNS - has lots of canals, streams and rivers running through the city, reflecting its beauty!
Lovely to see from your hotel room window !!
Directions: near de city centre.....
LEIDENS SAFE BET HOTEL
my stay at the de doelen hotel was uneventful ,the room was small but clean with a telly and BBC1 so no problems there,
a shower and telephone too,more than suitable for one person on a short break who wants honest accomadation.
breakfast is more than plentyful,with a choice of cereal,tea,coffee,fruit juice,plenty of different bread to try,cold meats,yogurts of various flavours,and of course toast and butter,so getting a good breakfast is no problem,eat up for the day ahead.
Unique Quality: the hotel is said to be one of the oldest around,it's location is very good,a matter of minutes walk from Leiden Centraal train station,and a stones throw from two cinemas and the town centre,so walking around the whole city is quite possible if you felt the need.
the hotel owners/staff are more than capable of speaking english so no real problems in communication,europeans tend to be able to speak three or four languages,swopping as required one to the next.
Directions: the de doelen hotel is on the main rapenberg right on the canal side in a nice location
Hotel located on a classy canal
Again, as a resident of Leiden i don't have first hand experience.
This hotel has 3 stars. It's located on de Rapenburg canal, the most beautiful canal in Leiden. It's very small though, only 16 rooms. Therefore making a reservation is recommended.
This hotel does not have its own restaurant however this is hardly a problem. There is plenty of nice restaurants within walking distance.
Unique Quality: View over Rapenburg canal
