This hotel is kid paradise. My 10-year-old son loved the swimming pool, the ping pong table, and the play area, where he made lots of friends to keep him busy during our Spring Break visit to the Netherlands. As for Mom, I thought the hotel was very expensive for the size and quality of the room, but I also thought...

I spent most of a week here for a scientific concert. The room was fantastic, the indoor courtyard with plants and fountain were marvelous. There was an alluring swimming pool, the Ocean bar people, food and beer was beyond exceptional. The location was about a mile from city centre, not too far to walk. The free shuttle into town could...

This 4-star hotel is located outside Leiden, in the middle of nowhere. Easiest to get there is by taxi, or on "lucky" hours by shuttle bus, but only on working days. There is also public transport connection line 43, bus stop is close to the hotel. Inside hotel you get feeling of old factory or really motel, especially specific design...

This place has many things going for it: A fairly central location, good rates if you for a room if you book early and if, like us, you stay in a double room with three people. The rooms are clean, the bathrooms are a good size, and all of us slept well - due in part to a choice of...
