Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by peterwoudsma Great location, intriguing floor plan
This hotel is strategically located between Amsterdam and The Hague. The executive rooms are all facing a large open area that has the restaurants on the ground floor. It means that the hotel is particularly noise around dinner and breakfast, but besides that, it is a pleasant and comfortable stay. The rooms are modern, the bed guarantees a wonderful sleep, and the business traveller will find all that he needs. Definitively a hotel to go back to.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jhat11 Staff pleasant, comfy beds, terrible dinner
Upon arrival staff was very pleasant and even let our children "check-in". Room was comfortable but I had to clean the tub because it had hair in it. Pillows were nice. Dinner was very expensive and not worth it. Definitely should have eaten somewhere else. Breakfast was good. Location was great. Parking our large SUV was easy. Short drive to the Keukenhof and Amsterdam. The indoor pool was great too.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Maggma Friendly and helpful and clean
Nice helpful staff who seem to really like working there.
The rooms are clean and in my recent experience well maintained.
There is a fitness area ( I can't comment because I am not the keep fit type) and a swimming pool that looks super nice. There is a table tennis and pool table too.
The resteraunt is in a large indoor Garden style area and serves a nice buffet selection in the evenings and for breakfast.
It's a busy place so don't be surprised if they have no rooms, book early.
I wouldn't hesitate to come here again and I have been here 5 nights in all recenty and they have all been super.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Holiday@@@@ Runn down, noisy
This hotel is not what you expect of a Holiday Inn.
The rooms are located around a huge hall where the restaurant is, which makes it very noisy. The bathroom was run down. Only the reception area and the bar look modern and clean.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Overdreamer 8 Good location for Leiden "University"
I think this hotel was built because of the university. Limited access to the city centre, I think it has only one bus line. I heard that there is a shuttle during the weekdays but not weekends(this could be the reason why hotel provide a room with very low price). Overall quality of the hotel is good, they maintained well, service was very kind. Elite membership was recognized well, so I upgraded to the executive room. What I liked most in this executive room is 6 free espresso capsule and Economist journal.
Well, mostly I satisfied this stay, and next time probably I want to bring my family to enjoy lots of amenities(Pools, table tennis, sauna etc.) provided by this hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BrianandNancy Great place for kids
This is a hotel that caters to kids and does well at it. We had an interior room that pointed into a large atrium with the restaurant and play area nearby. There was a waterfall with turtles sunning themselves nearby. While in Leiden for the easter break, we were pleased to see so many kid friendly options locally placed. Someone in a Tony the Turtle suit greeted us, we werent sure whether he was a regular attraction or just for Easter.
Staff was extremely helpful and supportive. I needed to get downtown before stores closed and they were helpful pointing out maps and where to park. They were also aware of bus schedules and logistics so we were grateful for the help.
Our kids (3 and 7) had a great time watching the turtles and fish, and generally running around. The pool was nice, a little cold for me, but we adjusted. The food was comfort food, what we experienced was good, not great. But co-located with diversions for kids, it worked for us.
The outside facade looks like it could use an upgrade. The interior was nice. Overall, a solid value for our room charge. We'd come back if its in our plans. Thanks for a nice visit!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Doekie do not change
we are frequenting your hotel already for eight years, some once or twice a year. You know and offer exactly what we want and we know exactly what to expect. A perfect understanding between the two of us. So, don't change, please!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ross101 A great place to stay in Leiden
My wife and I took in your hotel for the weekend to enjoy the flowers of Kuekenhof. It's a short 15 minute drive and easy to access the autobahn back and forth.
The experience at the hotel was very good. We stayed in the exec suite, everything was clean and our needs were met. The bed was very comfortable and the pillows (marked with a "stiff" or "soft" option) really made a difference. We felt at home and comfortable.
The breakfast was well worth the price and there was plenty of food at any time during breakfast hours.
The staff was helpful in getting us around and very willing to make our stay more comfortable.
Bottom line - definitely will recommend this hotel and the amenities!

The breakfast was good but the room furniture was quite old, the bathroom needs renovation.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DutchDancer Good value for what we needed
We stayed for two nights, and booked the package including tickets to Keukenhof, dinner one night, and breakfast both mornings. We felt like the price was reasonable for everything included. The staff were quite helpful and friendly, both at the desk and in the restaurant. The rooms were clean and relatively spacious, and the pool facility was nice as well.
My only complaint is that the beds were not particularly comfortable. I realize this is a personal preference, but the mattresses were quite firm, bordering on hard.
Overall, I think the hotel was a good bargain, and well-located for what we needed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tulip Lover A nice family weekend
A great place for families...
The kids had a lot of fun in the pool...
Food was excellent!
Lots of museums in the surroundings... Naturalis and Corpus...
Defintively to be recommended for families in search of a relaxing weekend.
Some issues with the reservation and the check-out but smoothly solved... Just a matter of communication!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Enter Perfect location perfect hotel
We stayed for 1 night and had dinner in the hotel wich was a very good buffet. The breakfast was also good but a bit less healthy than we would have liked.
The swimmingpool with sauna were very nice, to bad there are no loungebeds for when you want to read a little when children are swimming.
We had a quiet room wich was nice.
overall a very pleasant stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 74Deano74 Great for families with young children
Great facilities for families with young children, although the play area needs some updating and all three Playstations were out of order! Swimming pool is decent, sauna a nice bonus. Good spacious hotel which almost has a holiday park feel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Megnezem American motel style - family hotel
The premise is in fact huge, in comparasion with other Holiday Inns. Quite old school, not too much modernity with it. The hall / patio is also spectaculary big with it's rainforest theme.
The hotel itself was crowded. Families with children all around, playing with ice cubes, running up and down - not a place for relaxation when crowded at all.
Walls are thin, we hear everything above, under and next to us.
The room itself was OK in size, however the lack of window to the World was a big big con. The only window was to the corridor, which had window to the nature - that means no direct fresh air in the room.
The bathroom was a bit dirty - some hairs here and there. Towels had marks of previous usage.
All in all, a good place for a stopover, maybe good for families, but for relaxation, and so on - not the best choice. Value was good though, as the price was relatively low in Dutch terms. The facility itself is more like a motel in the USA, which is quite rare in Europe.

Stayed for a couple of days with my wife and kids and had a lovely time. Kids enjoyed the swimming pool and kids area a lot. I even had the chance to workout in the gym. Breakfast was also very good. I can recommend to everyone, especially parents will have wonderful time with their kid(s).

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by PulseRacingUK beware B&B rate is misleading
Stayed here a lot over the years, its in a useful location and the Holidome seperates this from run of the mill Holiday Inns. However, 'inside' rooms can be noisy - so if you want total quiet choose an 'outside' room.
Main problem I have with this hotel is the sneaky policy of the B&B rate only including 1 person #regardless of how you fill in the booking#. This resulted in a very reasonable weekend B&B rate having 50% added just to allow the 2nd adult to eat. Not happy, reception unapologetic - said it was in the smallprint and blamed IHG website. Complaint submitted to IHG but not heard anything

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sheenie-Jay Came to my rescue and provided comfort, warmth and perfect relaxation
Having found myself in desperate need to stay at The Holiday Inn at minutes' notice, they came to my rescue. I'd stayed there once before and had left some remarks about that experience. They absolutely responded to that and my needs and I had a lovely, Executive Room, clean, warm and in a quiet part of the hotel. They could not have done more to make me feel relaxed during a very busy and important week for me.
As I was organising somewhere to live, due to an imminent permanent move to Leiden, I needed their help on a few occasions and they were always friendly and helped me without question.
The staff are so friendly, even suffering my Dutch when I wanted to practice!
Nothing was an issue.
I will need to go back for a couple of days when I move and I will, without question, return to this hotel and ask for the same room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Skinnybones Excellent hotel
We stayed in the family room which was an excellent room for the price we paid. The kids loved the hotel ! The only thing is that the size of the beds was a bit small for 2 adults and 2 kids (2 small double beds) Breakfast selection was also quite large!
We stayed in a room on the inside of the hotel (with a view on the restaurant) which was a bit noisy until the play-area closed at 21.00 hrs. After that it was OK. Overall great hotel with the pool!

We stay there every year with a group during hollidays.
In this case i had a bad experience with the deskstaff. The man was not nice and reather firm. Not very nice, especcially when you are a regular guest.
The staff from garden restaurant was as friendly as Always.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shola Excellent Weekend break
We arrived earlier than normal and was allowed to check in. Very smooth process. We received a room upgrade (courtesy Priority membership). Food was awesome, service was exceptional. It felt like a home away from home. I was even allowed to check out hours after the statutory check out time.
I'm definitely coming back to use your sauna and pool
Thank you for making my first visit to the Netherlands pleasant and very refreshing.
