Lonely Planet review
Steeped in history, this 1611 canal house has luxurious rooms and amenities including a sauna, roof terrace, and Nespresso machines in each of the five Golden Age–meets-21st-century rooms richly decorated with shimmering fabrics and canopied beds. Its sister property, De Barones van Leyden , is, incredibly, even more opulent.
Our independent authors have visited Huys van Leyden and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Leiden.
