Cozy hotel in city center
The Hotel Minerva is a pleasant small hotel in the historic center of Leiden. The hotel staff are welcoming and helpful. Breakfasts are well worth the cost. A room is available for storing bicycles overnight. It should be noted that the hotel doesn't have a lift and the stairways are steep and tall, so those with mobility issues (or lots of luggage) may find it difficult to get to and from the rooms. The hotel is a good value, and we would definitely stay there again the next time we are in Leiden.

Old town near Leiden centraal
It is a nice hotel with a nice breakfast. I also had dinner twice and it was good. Nothing fancy, but good and reasonably priced. The room I had was a bit small and they have lots of pillows and a comforter on the bed which waists a lot of space once you take them off the bed. The cabinet is a bit small as well. But overall, it was a very nice hotel in the old town and in walking distance from the train station.

A quirky hotel with lots of character
First hotel on our cycle trip. Happy that there was covered storage for our cycles. Our suitcases were waiting for us in the lobby. When we arrived we had been cycling in 3 hours of cold rain and were so glad to arrive. We were told we were on the 2nd floor, in the morning a fellow resident mentioned we should have used the service elevator to get out bags upstairs. We had 2 sets of steep stairs. Room 1 was very small with a day bed, room 2 had another small set of stairs to a small double room with a great view towards the canal. The location of the hotel was great. It was difficult to get information from the front desk. They were helpful when asked but information was not provided unsolicited. Breakfast was a typical continental breakfast.
