Huys van Leyden is an intimate boutique hotel set in the historic center of Leiden, right next to the Oude Singel canal. This heritage-listed property dating from 1611 includes many original features and offers a shuttle service from/to Schiphol Airport and Leiden Central Station and has its own private parking.

Huys van Leyden offers hotel rooms as well as a loft in a nearby building (150 feet). All of the rooms are unique in layout and furnishings. The wooden-floored rooms are decorated with bright colors and have box-spring beds. They have a flat-screen TV with cable channels, a tea/coffee maker and a mini-bar. The rooms can only be reached by stairs! There is no elevator.

In addition to the à la carte and buffet breakfast, guests can also enjoy dinner, afternoon tea or a private boat trip on the canals. These services can only be booked at the hotel.

The Pieterskerk is just 2,950 feet on foot. Leiden’s central train station is 0.7 mi away. The old town with its museums and the Castle ‘de Burcht’ are a 5-minute walk away.
