    It was clean and basic but good value for money. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

    Everything was very very nice, the autenthicity of the original vintage dutch furniture of the lobby and breakfast room was even mentioned in the city boat trip!

    no, everything was 100% ok :-)

    Central location in Leiden and old-fashioned charm

    There were roadworks (canal bank) immediately ouside the hotel and no hotel parking. Public parking was expensive at 12 Euros per day starting at 0900 (before we were ready to leave the hotel).

  • Single
    10.0

    The friendliness of the staff, the cleanliness, and the excellent buffet breakfast. Some of the rooms appear to be themed, and I had a beautiful room that looked like something out of Arabian Nights, with Moroccan lamps, a canopy and shiny cushions.

    If you want to work in your room, the bathroom is the only place that has sufficient lighting. (This is true for most hotels, though.) Since the hotel is excellent otherwise, I would suggest bringing your own reading light.

    Excellent location, all of central Leiden is within walking distance. Charming interior, my room was comfortable and had a view over the canal.

    There was occasional noise outside in the evening. I was ok with it, but a light sleeper might feel different. Getting the shower to keep an even temperature was a bit of a balancing act.

  • Single

    Location was quite central.

    The hotel is probably the worst place I have ever stayed at. Firstly the street outside is littered with garbage. The canal bridge is closed and construction materials are everywhere. As soon as I netered the hotel I couldn't breathe as it is really old.I Was given a room on the third floor. There is no lift and you have to snake through dozens of stairs. Upstairs it is like a disused furniture shop, atmosphere full of a cocktail of dust, mites, smell of rotten wood and condensation. The name Niew meaning new is a bit of joke as everything is ancient here. There was nothing else there except "my room" I had an instant asthma attack. I decided immediately that I couldn't spend a night there. I asked to change the room. The young receptionist was sympathatic but the old one, probaly the land landy acted like mother superior. After a bit of argument I was given another room on second floor. The same state of affair but at least there were other rooms. The breakfast was equally next to nothing at an extra price. Bread, wafer thin cold meats. Eggs were raw and had n time to cook them. Very disappointing and a real rip off. I came for a week but I asked to check out immediately. There was another hard faced oldish woman who argued why I wanted to leave. I think this place should be closed down and whoever decides to give licences to this type of properties and services is out of his mind. My advice rather sleep at the station than staying here. I am amazed who on earth writes good reviews about this so called hotel. People do have their tastes! If your mother-in-law insists coming to Leiden with you then I suggest you put her here.

    Very clean, albeit aged decor. Lots of bars and restaurants near by.

    No lift, so if you have heavy luggage ask for assistance. Student Union behind hotel, can get noisy at closing time

    central location in the middle of Leiden, some rooms are really nice

    other rooms are less nice...

    Central location

    Room a bit dingy and hot and no coffee or tea facilities

  • Older travelers

    close to local facilities - walking distance of station, shops and local attractions

    very small bedrooms and original room allocated to us was above the side alley and we had a very disturbed night due to night club. Cost was high for the size of room. Air con would be nice...

  • Single

    Excellent location, in the very center of Leiden. Good value for money

    Room was clean. Staff very friendly. The breakfast was good although not included in price.

    Internet is way too expensive (6 euros per hour). On top of that it was not very stable. I got disconnected several times, but I did not miss any time since the clock is running only when you are connected. Good overall speed though.

  • Older travelers
    6.2

    Comfortable mattress and good light over the desk

    Small room, not enough space between wall and bed. No lift. No coffee/tea facilities. Not reachable bed light switches.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    Very convenient for Leiden itself, and only 500m from the main train station, with, therefore easy access through The Netherlands.

  • Older travelers
    4.6

    Situation of hotel for wandering around leiden is good. Good rail links and bus services to other areas.

    Cleanliness of our room was a problem. Before and during our 4 night stay the bath was not cleaned. The hotel menu was poor. Generally there was a lack of effort in every area.
