City Hotel Nieuw Minerva Leiden

City Hotel Nieuw Minerva is located in Leiden’s historic city centre, within walking distance of shops, restaurants, museums and only 10 min from the central train station. The hotel is a 3-star establishment in a 16th century building along one of Leiden’s many canals, the Rhine. The historical characteristic of the hotel can be experienced in our classical rooms, unique themed rooms and suites. Our hotel rooms all have a different design. Spend the night in a room where Louis Napoleon slept, or maybe you fancy “living” in the 17th century and sleep in an exact copy of Rembrandt’s box-bed?

Experience the personal atmosphere and Leiden’s hospitality in our monumental building. Start your day with our traditional breakfast buffet and enjoy a delicious lunch or dinner in our restaurant. Our bar also serves a wide choice of drinks and snacks.

The hotel has two multifunctional meeting rooms which are perfectly suitable for business meetings, parties and celebrations.

City Hotel Nieuw Minerva has the perfect location not only to explore Leiden, but also The Hague and Amsterdam, a 12 and 30 minutes train ride respectively.
