Breakfast is also mentioned as a positive point by almost all families with kids. Also frequently mentioned are the friendly staff, the beautiful rooms and that the hotel is so family-friendly.

2. Tulip Inn Leiden Centre
The second hotel in this list of family-friendly hotels in Leiden is the Tulip Inn Leiden Centre and this hotel is located right in the center of Leiden. You can walk from the hotel right into the shopping center of Leiden. Also, the hotel is close to Leiden’s central train station, so this hotel is also great for visiting the city of Leiden by train.

This three-star hotel has family rooms for families of four that are 26m2 in size. The room is not super big and there are four single beds next to each other. This family room in Leiden has a bathroom with a bathtub. We always do find this to be a great advantage of a room, as our daughter loves to be able to take an extended bath at the end of the day. There is also entertainment for the kids in the family room, such as coloring, for example.
The hotel also has a restaurant where you can go for snacks and drinks three times a day.

3. Fletcher Wellness Hotel Leiden
The third hotel in our list of family-friendly hotels in Leiden is the Fletcher Wellness-Hotel Leiden and this hotel is located practically next to the train station. From the hotel you can walk to the city center in a few minutes, and for a small fee, parents can use the wellness area Blue.
Unfortunately, this hotel does cater only to families of three and not to families of four. The family room at this hotel is 30m2 in size and has a private bathroom. There is a double bed and a single bed for family members. Furthermore, the family room looks modern.
The hotel also has its own restaurant where you can go three times a day for a bite to eat and a drink, but of course you are also right in the center of Leiden and there are plenty of choices in terms of catering establishments there. Unfortunately, the wellness is not open to kids and is only accessible to those over the age of eighteen.

ibis Leiden Centre 4.
The fourth hotel in this list of family-friendly hotels in Leiden is also near the central train station. As you can see, there are certainly nice options in terms of hotels when you visit the city of Leiden by train. As with the Fletcher Wellness Hotel Leiden, it is then only a short walk to the center of the city of Leiden.
If you have slept in Ibis hotels before, you know that Ibis rooms are not super big. The triple room at Ibis Leiden Centre is also only 17m2, but has a modern and fresh look. It’s good value for money most of the time. This family room in Leiden also has a private bathroom.
In the morning, this family-run hotel in Leiden serves breakfast to its guests. For lunch and dinner, you have to go downtown to get something to eat.

It’s always nice when you can go to the pool after a day of walking around Leiden, but unfortunately you don’t have any hotel in Leiden with a pool. The Fletcher Wellness-Hotel Leiden does have a swimming pool, but it is not accessible to kids.

By car, you will then be in Leiden in about twenty minutes by car and, of course, you will be by the sea with the hotel. Especially in the summer months, this can be a nice combination of, for example, the nice museums in the city of Leiden on one side and the beach and swimming pool and beach on the other.
Good options in Noordwijk aan Zee, are the following hotels with swimming pools:
Van der Valk Palace Hotel Noordwijk: This hotel is located on the beach of Noordwijk aan Zee and also has an indoor pool, which includes a steam bath and a sauna.
