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.

  • Super nice museum with lots of original apparatus. Like the machine with which Kamelingh Onnes discovered super conductivity. And much more.
  • I had the chance to see their depo. Very fascinating and the guides were particularly knowledgeable. I can't wait for it to open again after renovations!
  • Very interesting Museum! Definitly a must-see when you are in Leiden.
  • Great history of science!
  • Note: Museum is closed for major renovation until early 2017. Information is on their website, but not on Google Maps. Go to their website to see when they will be reopening. It is a very good museum when it is open to the public.
