    Very good

    I've stayed at the van der valk a few times and always found it comfortable although a bit out of town. Breakfast is very comprehensive.

    waterside location

    Beautiful hotel but restaurant understaffed at breakfast where there were irritating waits for food to be replenished and the doors to the outside terrace to be opened. Dangerously scalding water in the shower cubicle where the controls required an expert and subtle touch meant that we felt forced to use the bath instead. (Room 215)

    Fabulous

    It was very near to the American School which we were visiting.

    We had the basement room and no balcony. I hope the price was discounted because of this. I don't like not having a coffee maker or tea in the room and breakfast is not included in the price. A small breakfast with a smaller charge would be a better option.

    Fabulous

    The hotel has a pleasant ambiance and is situated outside of the larger cities of Amsterdam and the Hague, but is easy to access in Leiden. The environment was restful and attractive, the facilities were tasteful, and the breakfast buffet was quite good. The staff was attentive. I liked the ambiance of the bar/lounge, as well, with the gas fire. I would recommend the hotel to others in the future, as the price was also very reasonable.

    Fabulous

    The hotel was of a good standard and well finished. The breakfast was excellent.

    The location was close to the motorways but some distance from Leiden city centre.

    Superb

    The room was very clean and pleasant. The staff were very helpful. The room was on the ground floor which meant the views were not anything special, but this did not detract. The riverside setting was superb. Breakfast, lunch and dinner can be taken on the terrace next to the river when the weather is good enough. The quality of food and the selection at breakfast was very good with very helpful staff. The hotel is 10 mins by bus from Leiden Central Station and it would take a long time to walk the distance. But I found it nice to return to a quiet at night. Overall, very good hotel.

    Superb

    Hotel is situated in lovely place, close to a canal. Staff is friendly and helpful and of course, English-speaking. Rooms were clean and quiet, nice bar, good breakfast with plenty dishes to choose. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

    Good

    The food was very good quality in the resturaunt and a reasonable price.

    The room was promised with a bolcony, however on arrival the ''balocony'' was a small apce outside the window, with no door accsess (room 414). The room was downsatirs so felt very dark with not much light coming in. The decor was dated and plain.

    Tea and coffee from machine at breakfast. Breakfast is relatively dear though offering plenty of choice.

    Good

    Nice picturesque position.Good car parking. On bus route to Leiden city centre with frequent buses

    Hotel very business meeting/conference orientated. We were "upgraded"!!? To a 3 roomed appartment as our serviced room had been probably allocated to a business customer. This was no upgrade but probably for the convenience of the hotel management. The appartment was not serviced during our two night stay, There was a shortage of toilet paper. We could not use the microwave oven as it lacked a turntable. There were 3 flights of stairs to the appartment. Bottom flight lack handrail and was very dangerous, especially when carrying heavy luggage. Supposidly hot breakfast buffet was cold. On leaving we mentioned the spurious upgrade this was acknowledged as being untrue and we were offered a deductiion of one day's breakfast. Not really good enough for Van Der Valk's flagship hotel.

    lovely hotel next to the river

    shower step was to high for me du to my walking difficulties

    Fabulous

    It is a location very useful for visiting Leiden and drive quiclkly to Amsterdam. Wonderful breakfast on the canal.

    What I found deceiving was the absence of air conditionining in the room. We were there on two hot days and we would have appreciate it very much.

    Fabulous

    Staying at the hotel is something of a nostalgia trip, following a period of work in Leiden in 2000. I also stayed at the hotel in 2006. Over the period the hotel has been substantially refurbished with attractive modern decor.
