Very light 2-room apartment with balcony on south west in the centre of Leiden. It is 10 minutes walk of Central Station, historical centre and 1minute walk to the botanical garden. Separate bedroom with double bed, fully equipped kitchen (incl dish washer) and guitar & banjo to play with. Two extra mattresses to put on the floor if 4 people would like to stay.
Amsterdam & Rotterdam are 30 minutes by train. Night trains go all night. 15 minutes to The Hague & 40 minutes to Utrecht. You are close to the country's biggest cities. If Amsterdam is your only destination, I recommend searching for an apt. there.
Leiden is a university town and has a great market on Saturday (try the raw haring, even though I'm not a great fan, it seems to be an experience), many museums, an old historic centre and nice canals. No huge clubs, but loads of Dutch pubs, coffee /tea bars and authentic shops within a 5 min. walk.
We had a wonderful stay in Kim's really lovely apartment. Even though we did not meet in person, Kim made sure that our stay went smoothly and we had a wonderful time in Leiden. Thanks again!!
I booked Kim's apartment for when my sister and Mom came to visit me, as I live in Leiden. Kim's apartment was perfect! She was a wonderful host and communication was easy. The apartment is a great location- a quiet neighborhood so that you can enjoy your vacation, but also within walking distance of the heart of the city center and train station. Kim's place became my own little piece of home for the week. If you're visiting Leiden (which I would whole heartedly recommend), Kim's apartment is the best place to stay!
Kim could not have been nicer. She went out of her way to be helpful and we did not feel rushed when she met us to give us the key. We very much liked the way she had decorated the apartment and found it very spacious and well-located near the university and Pieterskerk where the 17th century Pilgrim community settled after leaving England in (phone number hidden) and before the voyage to America on the Mayflower. We would definitely stay in Kim's apartment again if given the opportunity and hope she will be able to continue to offer her apartment on Airbnb. We wish her the best
Leiden is a wonderful place and staying at Kim's allowed us to get the most out of it. The location was awesome and the house was very nice and pretty.
Kim is also the perfect host since she prepared us a map and a few flyers from the city highlights.
It was a very good experience and we recommend this place vividly!!
Ms Van Rigt gave us a warn welcome to her well-organized and pleasant apartment. The location is un-matched for Leiden ...right around the corner is the city's premier bakery.
Kim's place was just as described. Cute and comfortable. She helped us with dinner reservations and was in contact every step of the way.
Totally worth visiting the cute Leiden and staying at Kim's. Perfect size apartment in a handy location. It's indeed recommended!
Kim was delightful and friendly. The apartment was in a fantastic location in the heart of Leiden. Kim keeps a comfortable, warm, and clean home that was ideal for my stay. Overall, it was better than I imagined, and it was so nice to have a "home" to go back to each evening.
The appartment was just as described, light and airy, and quite warm and practical, as well as very well situated.
Leiden is a very cute city, quiet and charming, that begs to be visited.
Kim was adorable, left all necessary info and we had much fun enjoying an evening talking.
An experience to reiterate asap!
Kim's apartment is beautiful and was excellent for us - a couple - with a seperate bedroom, large living room (no tv, but we don't mind) and a kitchen with everything you could dream of (e.g. some 5 ways to make coffee...). located near Leiden center - and the city has a lot to offer.
