Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Datthijn Very nice ambiance
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.

I often have to come to Leiden on business and after long days of work, it is always nice to return to a place that is so friendly and accommodating...The entire staff, especially JW and Nico, are attentive and take great pride in their work...The hard work and effort of all is the reason that I always return...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Goldie1 Comfortable bed and good food
As we have been travelling to the Netherlands since more than 30 years by now, we have always chosen Holiday Inn at Leiden as our favourite hotel. It is always very clean, the rooms are nice , breakfast and dinner are delicious, service is perfect. And the city of Leiden is not very far to reach by car, as well as the wonderful beaches at Wassenar and Noordwijk. We will always come back for the next years. And our dog thinks the same ;-))

We had a reunion of people who lived in Indonesia in the past.
To bad the hotel could not provide matching food.
The dinner itself was dilicious.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by June11 Favorite location in the Netherlands
We travel a lot and come to the Netherlands several time every year for business and every time enjoy our stay in Holiday Inn Leiden - comfortable beds, good food and a swimming pool give a chance to relax after the hardest working day. Plus wonderful arrangement of restaurant area! We return to this hotel for many years

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bernold good service & good meals
We visited your hotel in 1983.Parents/me &mywife/kids.
Now again we/our daughters/husbands/grand children.
In general for all guests young or old a splendid swimming pool.
For small kids (up to approx 10 years) there are enough possibilities to play.
For older kids and parents only table tennis
For parents a very bad biljart (not possible to play!)
So my advice would be to install some more extra's..
midget golf (was in 1983)/bowling/tennis/squash/computer games for the older kids/
to attract also families with older kids
A general remark:
We found it in the restaurants far too warm...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Maggma 2 October 2013 STAY
Nice hotel which has been undergoing some renovation works for a few months now. The rooms are fine but maybe not as new and fresh as other hotels I have stayed in but certainly fine. The staff were excellent and the breakfast was just as I like it lots of space to spread out, not sitting right beside some other guest and unhurried.
My previous stay was considerably better value as this time cost 30% more hence my average value rating. Just a bit much for me. I stayed here again as I had already decided to stay here and booked last minute..

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Painter2 Good, but a couple of irritations.....
Generally a nice hotel, with very pleasant rooms and a good choice at breakfast. A couple of niggles though. As often the case in hotels, no socket within reach of a mirror. How are you supposed to dry or straighten hair? Then the fountain in the central inner courtyard - it was on all night and was very noisy, even from the bedroom. It should be turned off at night for the sake of the environment, if not for the guests. Next time I will bring a mirror and some ear plugs.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Taky Not too friendly reception smoking smell in the room
Reception personal was not really friendly, not smiling at all ...
The room was kind of OK, looked a bit old style except the TV ... bathroom was a bit cold, but left open the door and for the next day it was better.
Unfortunately the room had a smell like it was a smoking room before, which was disturbing.
The personnel in the bar was very friendly and helpful !

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BJJJ Family friendly hotel, good service
We value the hotelfor the family rooms, with comfortable (relatively small) beds, very good breakfast and dinner buffet, and especially good for entertaining the younger kids in the jungle area. Swimming pool is fine too.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mo1976 Enjoyed our stay, very comfy & excellent location.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Leiden Holiday inn, beds were comfortable, great service where our room was cleaned every day, there was coffee facilities with kettle and a small fridge in our room which was great, there was a safe in our room where we kept our passports. The room was very clean and nice bathroom, The sauna and the swimming pool is fantastic. The hotel is 20 minutes walk from Leiden city centre which kept us fit :) unfortunately the shuttle service wasn't available at the time of our stay and we were told that this service is available from september onwards.
Another cool thing is that you can hire a bike from the hotel.
We visited the Katwijk beach which was half an hour by car from holiday inn and it was smashing (Sandy beach with mini crabs), I think bus 30 or 31 goes to Katwijk.
Public transport link is spot on, there are trains every 10 minutes from Leiden to Amsterdam and vice versa.
We'll defiantly stay @ Leiden Holiday Inn on our next visit to Netherlands.

Room is big enouth and clean, beds are comfortable, bathroom should be renovated. Absolute no accept for the pigeons in the restaurant (one leaves his ecxcrements on my shoulder while having breakfast, an other on a table nearby while the family was at the buffet!)

The lady at the front desk indicated to us how to get to the station and gave us the timetable.
We arrived without a car and soon realised that you do not need one to stay there.
It is very easy to go to Amsterdam and The Hague to do sightseeing.
We have appreciated the new rooms. They are more stylish and up to date, we have stayed twice before in this hotel and appriciated even more as the last time we thought the rooms looked tired.
We will recommend this hotel to people who want to visit Holland and want to avoid the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fi43 Perfect for the whole family
The facilities at this hotel make family fun easy, we all enjoyed the pool and table tennis and the bouncy castle and playing blocks kept the kids entertained for hours in the evening, allowing for great relaxation.
The buffet dinner (which came as part of our package) is varied and delicious, everyone enjoyed their dinner and ate our full (or maybe a bit more!).
We would totally reccommend this hotel, this was our third visit and we shall be back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Xicu Very good hotel for families
We enjoyed three nights at the hotel while visiting the zone. It was fantastic, mainly for the children who can enjoy the playing area and specially the pool, open until 11 PM. It's important because because when you arrive late in the afternoon after visiting the zone, it's a pleasure to relax in the pool without any hurry.
We are very satisfied.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 LOVE LOVE LOVE this Hotel
Very nice Holiday Inn, close to business, school and leisure activities. The hotel is beautiful, very kid friendly and business traveler friendly. I was quite impressed. There are plenty of activities onsite for family fun. A good Buffet, but seemed a little pricey for what you got. The bar had a very limited menu. This was really my only complaint. The hotel is excellent and I would highly recommend it to others staying in Leiden.

dogs welcome although charging 15 Euros for each pet!!!
had to argue with staff regarding later checkout although gold member of ICH, at the end granted. airconditioned rooms quiet, but breakfast to expensive for valvue offered. charging for our 5 year old daughter 15 Euros plus as well.
Overall hotel okay although buildingsite and building oldish, we will not book again because of all extra charges

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by amateurehoteltester Rooms and Breakfast OK, but never order a Pizza!!!
When we entered, the room was fine and clean. Not perfect, but adequate for the price we paid (special price). Breakfast was OK.
When we arrived, my family and I were very hungry, and we saw an advertisement in the room offering a Pizza Service, so I ordered 3 Pizzas at EUR 8,95 each. After about 10 Minutes we received a call from the Pizza Service telling us they only have one Margherita left which sounded very strange to me, as I expected the Pizza will be freshly baked. So I already expected this will be frozen Pizza that will just be warmed up, so my expectations were already very low. I was really surprised when I opened the Pizza box, that my low expectations of the Pizza quality could have even been way too high. Without any exaggeration these were the worst Pizzas I have ever seen and tasted in my 46 years on earth. Any EUR 1,99 Pizza from a discounter is a hundred times more tasty than what they delivered. All three Pizzas were extremely dry, burnt and tasted like they have been baked at least the second or even the third time. We have thrown them away immediately. We should have complained about that, but I was tired and I did not like to start my vacations with a complaint. Again, the hotel room was fine, but I want to warn any guest to order a Pizza there. I usually don't write reviews but in this case, I hope this at least will bring someone from the Holiday Inn staff to order a Pizza undercover and try out, because this is food quality not adequate for the Holiday Inn standard.
Oh, one more thing. They claim free internet access which is true but it is limited to 512 kbit/s. To get full speed you need to 15 Euros per day (one day use) with large discounts for a week or a month, still a bit expensive.
