    Very nice spot to watch boats go by on a warm day... You can have a drink or more in the restaurant, which serves mostly sea food.  more »

    Piece of history of Lead! It's not a place where you very long will hang out, but if you're a city walk does, then I can definitely recommend this.

    If you switch from Leiden is worth a brief stop for the photo. It is the Eastern port town with characteristic wooden roof of 1667.

    Nice terrace but pretty pricey with a marginal quality. Bread with aioli came in paper bag, little pity

    Beautiful port, just a pity that you are not allowed to drive with the scooter.

Where to stay in Leiden

A relatively small city with a big student population, Leiden caters to both long- and short-stay visitors making their plans on a limited budget. The historical city center remains the most expensive area, offering rooms in charming old buildings turned into elegant hotels. Just a short walk from this area you can choose from inexpensive lodgings in family-run inns, where cozy rooms come with private parking and free Wi-Fi. For added mobility without the extra cost, look for guesthouses that offer free bikes for use around the city.
