We enjoyed our stay but the party of their neighbor which lasted until 6:30 was really unpleasant. Mari did not warn us while they were informed and left their home above.

Response from Mari:
A shame you didn’t make use of the option we gave you to tell the neighbour that you had trouble with the noise. This is also what we had agreed with him before we left. The fact that we had a family weekend had nothing to do with the party next door. Being a normal neighborhood you can understand that we cannot forbid others from doing as they please in their own homes.

You will be made very welcome by this very professional host, in a quite part of Leiden, short a short walk or ride from the town centre. We highly recommend a stay at Mari’s place.

Had a wonderful stay, hosts were very kind and responsive. The apartment was very comfortable and clean. Location was ideal for me, quite yet close enough to the center. Easy access to public transportation. Highly recommend the place, without any reservations.

Mari's apartment is lovely, and well kitted out. The design is really nice and stylish, and the provision of two bikes a real bonus. Close to the town centre, and in an area that is nice and quiet. Lovely stay, thank you.

This B&B offer is highly recommended. The host is very friendly and helpful and easy to reach. The appartment looks like just after the renovation. You find there everything you need for a short stay. The location itself is very close to the city center.
