The first two hotels, the Golden Tulip /Tulip Inn and Ibis Hotel are each a 2 minute walk from Leiden Central Station and 5 minutes apart. Both hotels have given us a group rate and are keeping rooms available for us until the beginning of August.  Booking instructions are listed below each hotel.  

Our morning and evening bus pick and drop off will most likely be from the Golden Tulip/ Tulip Inn.

The next two hotels, Holiday Inn and Van der Valk Hotel Leiden are very nice hotels both on the bus route to the school. …… but they are out of Leiden center.

We can arrange for our conference transport bus to stop off at these two hotels but for getting to and from Leiden on arrival and departure and for social events in Leiden you will have to rely on the local bus service or taxis …. Or you can be very Dutch and hire a bicycle !!

For those of you on a bigger budget the Hampshire Hotel right next to the station is very new and very nice …..  I believe.

The rest of the hotels are all within a 10 to 15 minute walking of Leiden Central Station and are much smaller.

Please be advised that if you have to arrive on Thursday you may find it difficult to find accommodation in Leiden and may have to move hotel or stay either in Amsterdam, at Schiphol or in The Hague. That is why our conference only starts on Friday – there is “no room at the Inn”
