                                          Perfect location to explore Leiden

                                          5 of 5
                                          What a great find this apartment was, in a safe, pedestrian street, minutes walk to shops, restaurants and a supermarket, not to mention the beautiful canals. We found it just as cheap for a group of 4 to arrive by taxi For €10 as the bus is €2 each and we were not sure of location. Once at the accommodation walking or nearby bike rentals for €7.50 for the day was all that was needed. The rooms are spacious and the kitchen was well equipped and the bathroom had plenty of towels. The owners were very helpful and friendly, would stay again if I come back to Leiden.
