The neighbourhood is like being back in time for at least 300 years. Dominated by the church of St. Pieter built in 1390. In daytime every hour you hear the sound of a carillon from the historical City Hall. Restaurants, bars are everywhere near by and so is the market alongside the canals on wednesdays and saterdays.
Busstop 1 minute walking distance, Central Station on 12 minutes walking distance (or 5 minutes by bus). By train you'll be in Amsterdam or the Hague in 30 minutes. After a day visit in the big city it'll be nice to come back in the peaceful friendly town of Leiden. Distance to the beach only 12 km.
Other Things to Note
Windows and doors have beautifully decorated stained glasses with small panels that look like paintings made by Rembrandt.
No smoking. No pats. No use of machines or other noises in the kitchen between 10.00 pm (22.00h) and 8.00 am the next morning, because of the neighbor who has his bedroom next to the kitchen.
Very convenient accommodation. I totally enjoyed staying two weeks. Made my own breakfast in the kitchen. The best location. My personal best is the walk in bathroom! Margaret is a great host.
Margaret was very welcoming, a great host. We had lots of communication before we arrived and during the stay. The house is perfectly situated, in the middle of Leiden but still in a fairly quiet area. There is a bit of noise with the bedroom being on the street side on Friday and Saturday nights, but this is unavoidable when you are in the centre! Thanks for a great stay.
This is a lovely, beautiful flat on a quiet, pretty street, with all the amenities you need. Margaret is very welcoming and helpful. I strongly recommend this flat.
Host인 마가렛은 우리를 맞이하기 위해 최선을 다해주었고, 편안한 투속을 위한 모든 것을 갖추고 있었다. 정말 즐거운 경험이었다. 레이덴은 참 아름다운 도시였다.
The apartment was clean, charming and well-appointed and situated in a beautiful historic area. The courtyard patio is lovely, and would be a great place to sit in the summer. The apartment is best suited for a couple or a single person.
About the Host, Margaret
The appartment is very concenient for me because it's on walking distance from the University of Leiden where I'm a student in Art History. In between courses and exams I'm working as a Travel Agent at Angeli Travel ((website hidden)). I do a lot of travelling, reason I can easily rent out the place, so other people as well can enjoy staying here in this historical center of Leiden.
