Staying on a building site with very unfriendly staff
  • We were unable to stay in the hotel during the afternoons because of the excessive building noise. The ongoing work is noisy (drilling and hammering) with accompanying smells and dirt. Staff instead of being understanding were unfriendly and short.

Excellent hotel near city centre
  • + Golden Tulip hotel is situated in the same buidling as Tulip Inn Hotel in Leiden which we visited from 4 â 6 Februar 2011. They both have the same reception, the same staff, the same lounge and the same restaurant. Only the rooms are different: Golden Tulip has new rooms of 4**** quality whereas Tulip Inn is a 3*** hotel. We booked a room in Tulip Inn but because of a Valentineâ™s offer we were up-graded to one of the new rooms in Golden Tulip. The hotels are within walking distance of the city centre (less than 10 minutes on foot) and about 100 meters from the train station. There is a large entrance hall running out into the lounge with sitting corners and reading table. It gives a somewhat oldfashioned but still rather comfortable impression. Golden Tulip has its onwn parking at 9 euro per 24 hours. Check inn and check out went very smoothly and staff in all parts of the building is extremely kind and helpful. We had a large double room (128) with a large double bed and two excellent mattresses. Even the four pillows were of very good quality, which is an exception compared to most other hotels. There is a large flatscreen TV, a mini-bar, a writng table and a large linen cupboard with save. The air-conditioner works very quietly. The room is extremely good soundproofed. There are coffee/tea facilities which are supplied everyday. The bathroom is rather roomy too with the best shower we ever had. Although not quite necessary, towels were changed every day and soap, shampoo, conditioner etc. had been replenished. Breakfast is really abundant and from a high quality: at least five kinds of cereals, yoghourt, bread, meat and cheese products, fruit, drinks, etc. Although coming from a coffee machine coffee tastes rather old. Breakfast was included in the price, but if you have to pay for it it is rather pricey (16 euro p.p.). We once had dinner there which was really excellent. The only negative point is the price of using the internet in the corridor on the ground floor: 0,35 euro a minute is a crazy price for a service a growing amount of hotels offer for free! Still, the hotel is very recommendable. Leiden is a marvelous city.

Too expensive for what you get.
  • Too bad they don't have a reasonably priced breakfast. 16.50 euro is too much for breakfast when it should be free. Also, paying 10 euro for an hour of wireless internet is a rip when it should be free. Very expensive.

Peaceful & friendly in Leiden
  • + --very close to Leiden Central which is only 15 minutes from Schipol --in centre of Leiden with lovelly walks --no charge for arriving at dawn cf. US who say come back after 2pm! --friendly & helpful staff
  • My next stop was Genoa (Italy) and before I realised there was a Golden Tulip hotel 200 metres from the bare bones place in which I stayed, I had already paid for the 3 nights. You need to better advertise locations away from megacities.

Recommended
  • + Comfortable, nice, clean room, conveniently located very near the railway station. Very friendly service.
  • Very narrow beds, not too conducive to comfortable sleeping (I was told they are the standard in the Netherlands). Very expensive internet access (17 euros/day). Unfriendly TV menu/controls.

Clean, but not really traveller friendly
  • + The breakfast is good.
  • the price for TV internet at room showed on TV and on the book were quite different; moreover, the receptionist's attitude was not friendly and she was not willing to help guests understand about the price differences and definition. Besides, although it is 3-star hotel, it is suggested that the rooms still are required to have small refrigerators or water boiler equiped.

Great location for Keukenhof
  • + Very convenient to the train / bus (about a block) - since I was going to Keukenhof for the day and then back to the airport, it was perfect. There are frequent buses (#54) to the garden and it's easy to explore Leiden on foot from the hotel.

Convenient location but the hygiene in the rooms...
  • + The location is very convenient, at walking distance to Leiden train station. In a very short time you can be in Amsterdam. The breakfast buffet is wide and tasty, and includes a wide choice of sweet and savoury food. The reception at our arrival was quick, friendly and professional.
  • The room was definitely not clean enough : one of the bed sheets was dirty - horrible red stripes on the inner side, on which we decided not to investigate furtherly. It was thrown directly into the armoire. In any case, we had the clear impression that the sheets had not been washed (or washed not properly) after the stay of the previous guests. Same negative overall impression about the cleanless the room (moquette, bathroom etc). This is totally unacceptable for a hotel of this level.

Good location - but please better light for reading in the room.
  • + Location very good.
  • The light in the room is totally inadequate for reading. This most important minus point. When I arrived a bulb was defect. The drain of the shower was half clogged. During my 2-week stay a lamp in the bathroom started flickering and had to be replaced. In each of the cases, I had to ask at the reception to repair, even though in the case of the bathroom lamp and drain I waited for some days before saying something. People who clean the room must see the same defects. This means that the persons who clean the room are not interested. What I did not complain about is that there where small black dots at a particular place in the shower. This is some kind of fungus. I might expect better cleanliness. One evining I came back late (after 24.00 h.) and wanted a drink. Some personel of the hotel were taking a last drink after work, but to me they told that the bar was closed and I had buy a beer from the vending machine. I would appreciate a little bit more flexibility; they could have given me a beer (with a glas) to take to my room.
