Great, stylish flat in an excellent location to explore Leiden. Mari was a great host, very helpful for organising check in and giving tips on the area. The folding bikes were awesome for exploring a bit further afield.

Mari and Wouter were great hosts. Very friendly and helpful. The studio has everything you need and is extremely comfortable and clean. Location is great as well, and you can be in town in 5min by bike or 15-20min on foot. I would always come back to stay.

I'm moved to the Netherlands 19 years ago from South Africa. I am a passionate dance teacher, coach and trainer. My husband and I love to travel and meet other travelers, which is why we built this B&B from scratch.
