Lonely Planet review
Built in 1638, this regal former patrician's mansion in a peaceful location just 150m from the Beestenmarkt has an air of slightly faded classical elegance. Some of the canal-side rooms are larger and better appointed than others. There are 128 rooms overall, some on the ground floor.
Our independent authors have visited De Doelen and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Leiden.
