Excellent value. 10 minutes walk from the main train station, all historic sites at walking distance. Excellent breakfast Friendly staff.
Hotel restaurant closed because of national Covid lockdown.
“My tip: 20 minute train ride from Amsterdam airport. Definitely visit the city castle 34 De Burcht 34 and the Pieterskerk area where the Pilgrim fathers started their journey to the USA.”

The location is great, near the city centre, near the station and there are plenty of restaurants nearby so convinient. The staffs are welcoming and very friendly. As for the property, this hotel is unique. From its front door, it looks pretty and even prettier in the inside. The room is just a perfect size and the bed is the comfiest I have ever had. I had a pleasent stay at BW City Hotel Leiden

Spacious room, good breakfast in a cosy restaurant, free coffee corner, for smokers, open air smoking area with a beautiful view
The furniture inside the room should be renovated, beautiful position, but no buses in the close nearby
“My tip: There is a beautiful brasserie just in front of the hotel. Better book. Harleemstraat with all its shops is just a few metres away. Great views on Oude West”

Nice room and convenient location. Good person at reception, friendly and welcoming.
I think the price was a bit high. The clock outside chimed every hour and half hour making it difficult to sleep

Well situated in Leiden with easy walking access to the city.
No free parking nearby and very few paid spots. Hotel does not feel like part of a major chain. The room we had was cramped because the two beds were 6 inches from the wall where there was a beam keeping them from being pushed back further. All plugs were out when we got into the room and the heat had not been turned on. The window overlooked a small enclosed balcony that was ugly and blocked any view of the outside street. The shower head was so high on the wall that I could not adjust it.
“My tip: Don't come with a car. ”

Good location; convenient access to the city center and the university, as well as restaurants.
Club on ground floor on the weekend was unappreiated; too noisy to be in a hotel.

The family room was great for us, since it had two bedrooms. We have three small kids, so two shared the king-sized bed, and one slept in a travel bed that we brought. The location is perfect -- walking distance to the train station and downtown Leiden.
On-street parking only, which is 12 Euro/day and sometimes tricky to find. The hotel is pretty bare-bones, with a fairly depressing lobby, if you want to call it that, and breakfast room. It is perfect if you don't need all the bells and whistles, just a clean, safe place to stay.

Travelling alone juni 2011
huge windows, special athmosphere, wooden floors, very friendly staff
seemed quite provisional, I guess because opened just recently. For example, wardrobe had doors that were not easy to open (bad quality?). The cooler in the breakfast room was humming to loudly.

Bath wass all right and new. The room was all right. The internet connection was good.
I had a room first. Its key never worked. Later they changed the room.
Young couples juni 2011
It's relatively affordable price in comparison to other hotels in the city and location.
The worst service ever experienced. Not sure, however whether it is the management or the staff to be blamed.
Travelling alone mei 2011
This was a wonderful choice. The rooms are spacious and bright. Everything is newly renovated and tasteful. The staff is excellent. Lieden is a great alternative to Amsterdam. It is so close by train to both Schipol and central Amsterdam but it has the charm of a smaller city.

AMAZING beds! It's like a cloud! Room pretty cool, great terrace!
