Perfect place for a short stay in Leiden!
Loved my stay at Ex Libris! Amazing location - right in the middle of all of the Pilgrim Fathers historical sites. My room was very cozy and immaculately clean.

Very nicely remodeled and right in the center of town. We were on the first floor, right on the street--very Dutch, but not very me. Otherwise, excellent.

Great Little Boutique Hotel
Very pretty, well-put together little hotel in a side street in Leiden (which is an awesome town, btw). Host was friendly, hotel had everything you needed, comfy bed, nice shower, coffee/tea in room, nice linens, spotlessly clean, etc. The stairs are steep and there's no elevator, but that's just the Netherlands.
