City Hotel Nieuw Minerva Leiden

City Hotel Nieuw Minerva is located right in Leiden’s historic city centre, within walking distance of shops, restaurants, museums . Leiden Central Station, which has an excellent connection by train to Schiphol Airport, is only 600 meters away. 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 lunch or a light dinner in our restaurant. Our bar  serves a wide choice of drinks and snacks.

The hotel has a multifunctional meeting room which is perfectly suitable for business meetings, training sessions, small parties and celebrations.

City Hotel Nieuw Minerva has the perfect location not only to explore Leiden, but also visit The Hague or Amsterdam, both only a short train ride away.
