We only came here for lunch. We took bread two different kinds of toppings. It was all good. We also took two coffee with different local liquors. Good taste! But the staff was really friendly, even personal. The room was spacious, the bed was great, the bathroom and especially the shower gorgeous.

It is a while ago now, but I stayed at this hotel a bunch of times during a work project in Leeuwarden. This was one of my best hotel experiences - almost ever. Very friendly staff, excellent breakfast & dinner options, and the rooms were very cosy, clean, modern, but also fashionably and authentic. No complaints whatsoever.

Post Plaza is a great place to lodge if you plan to go to Leeuwarden which is about 2 hours drive from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport in the Netherlands. It is located in a very quiet area.

After visiting the Alma Tadema exhibition in the Frisian Museum we had lunch in the converted Post office. Relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff, good food with a Frisian flavour. A place to feel at home and a place to return soon.

We enjoyed our weekend at the Post Plaza hotel and all we can say is that we were delighted by the customer service.

We stayed one night in Leeuwarden, visiting an exhibition in the Frisian Museum. As the hotel we wanted to book was full, we reserved a room in the Post Plaza.

This hotel was the best overall experience out of the seven hotels we stayed in on this trip and I must say no other hotel was bad or even average. The place somehow manages to gracefully combine the historic nature of the building with the state-of-the-art contemporary design and all modern conveniences while being spotlessly clean and tidy.

The old post office building from Leeuwarden has been converted into a new and trendy Grand Cafe. In the old post office and the adjoining Gratama Bank are 82 luxury hotel rooms. Both building are monumental and connected to each other with a walkway made of glass. Our 82 luxury hotel rooms are equipped with all necessities such as flat screen TV, safe, coffee & thee facilities, luxurious bath room and free WiFi. All of our hotel rooms are non-smoking. All of our hotel guests have free access to our wellness facilities. In our wellness you will find a fitness, jacuzzi, sauna and a Turkish steam bath.

It is open on daily basis from 07:00 AM until 01:00 AM. Here we will serve you the most delicious drinks and bites. Our Barista is burning his own coffee beans and the waitress is preparing the most surprising beverages. Hotel Post-Plaza is situated in a quiet bystreet just a 2 minutes walk from the city center. The former prison, which is nowadays a cultural center, ‘’De Blokhuispoort’’ is in the extension of the Tweebaksmarkt, where Hotel Post-Plaza is located.
