    Superb

    The location was excellent, as were the accommodation. After a month in Europe we were especially grateful for your comfortable bed and generous pillows. Our other accomodations ranged from apartment rentals, condo rentals, and luxury hotels, but the beds themselves lacked and yours was by far the most comfortable. As well, Jim accidently booked the single, when we noted that he had done so, and emailed to make the change, your response was reassuringly quick.

    The water stains on the ceiling interfered with the ambiance of the room and could be easily fixed with paint. The only other thing I found a bit frustrating was the hotels reluctance to supply a blowdryer after 9:00 pm. Blowdryers only cost a few Euro, having one available 24 hours is necessary, and easily managed. We run a ski hill condo in Canada, supply a blowdryer and have never had a problem. The current system is less than welcoming. Other than that, I liked everything.

    The location was good as it was near the station.

    Contrary to what is stated, the front desk is not 24 hr.

    Superb

    The location was excellent, the staff was very helpful, most could speak English, very close to trains.

    It was difficult to find and to park our car. The hotel needs some updating

    We visit our daughter in Leiden and wanted to stay on a hotel close to her. Mayflower was one near by. We had an "apartment" in 2 floor. The room was ok, but the stairs was extremly steep. There was a smell of sewer in the building all days, there was no exit if fire and a lot of noise from the street in the weekend. It is not a hotel for older people. We are passed 60 and have bad legs.

    Superb

    Large rooms, usually very quiet, nearby the railway station and at the entrance of the old picturesque town. Free wifi.

    The wifi was not always working correctly, days with, days without. It may not be particular to this hotel but I hate it when they throw away the piece of soap I have hardly started to use to put a new one every day and same for the shampoo bottle. They should use liquid soap dispensers or let us use the soap and shampoo to their end. What a waste!

    Hotel is close to the city center of Leiden and one of the cheapest.

    Nicely located in central Leiden with a nice view. Breakfast and cleaning OK.

    Grubby feel over it and has not been renovated for ages. Some of the furniture was literally falling apart and dangerous, and single glazing made my room noisy.

    This hotel is inaccurately rated as a 3-star hotel, but in reality it's barely a 1-star. The furnishings in the rooms are old and unclean. The first room I had was leaking water from the ceiling, and when I changed rooms the second room also had a leak in the ceiling. The bed mattresses are old, sagging and very uncomfortable. And the worst part is that this hotel is far overpriced for a 1-star hotel. I've stayed in youth hostels that are better than this. I've also stayed in nearly every other hotel in Leiden, and this is far and away the worst in town.

    Big rooms and bathrooms and location

    Hotel in process of renovation and some features unfinished - could be OK when work completed.

    The hotel is centrally located within the town of Leiden. It is within walking distance of the railway station, restaurants, canals and shopping.

    The hotel seemed a little run down and breakfast was very basic. Some staff were very welcoming but a number let the side down by being unfriendly and sharp with guests.

    Very good

    Very convenient for Leiden centre and helpful staff at night who explained where we could eat in the town. Comfortable bed in Room 20

    basin plug did not work in Room 20.I felt hotel management could have been more flexible about our need for a space to change at midday after we had checked out of our rooms

    Good

    It was well located. The beds were very comfortable.

    The stairs are uncomfortable to take with heavy luggage. The rooms decoration and bathroom facilities is well outdated.

    Fabulous

    The excellent location which allowes to have a nice walk in the town at every time, the staff which was always kind, and the room was clean.

    Maybe the internet connection needs to be improved for who needs it for business, but it's not very relevant.

    Very good

    I was in Leiden for work, and spent very little time in the Hotel. All I can say is that it was clean, in a wonderful location and the room I was in (facing the square) was very spacious and comfortable. I have heavy sleep, so had no problems, but I think someone with a light sleep might prefer rooms not facing the square for the noise coming from the street.

    The only thing that kind of let me down was that the toilet button in my room was broken. I could flash down, but still it doesn't give a good impression... Also, breakfast could be improved by having some fresh fruit or a wider range of options...
