Brilliant hotel in the middle of Leeuwarden - easy walking distance anywhere. Our room was spacious, clean and quiet. The staff were brilliant - so happy to help- and a great advert for their country. The only downside was the Internet connection which could be temperamentally slow at times

Stayed here with my wife for a couple of nights on a visit to Leeuwarden and we were totally thrilled with the attention to detail and helpfulness of the staff as well as the clean and luxurious hotel.

This former postoffice has been transformed into a great hotel and grand cafe. They did a superb and tasteful job...the guests are the winners :) Everything is great, the rooms, service, breakfast, atmosphere... and above all: the central location in the heart of Leeuwarden. A place to remember.... Long live the Postman!

Stayed here on two separate occasions in the last month. The rooms are very comfortable although relatively small. Note that in most rooms it's not possible to open the windows. The service was very good and helpful. Easy walk to all Leeuwarden has to offer.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Post-Plaza is located in the city center of Leeuwarden. Recently the hotel has undergone a major renovation. 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. An additional service is a massage and/or treatment which is bookable at our esthetician. In our Grand Cafe we will serve our breakfast, lunch and dinner. 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. On a very short distance you can find the Frisian museum and the ceramics museum. The railway station is only 1200 meters from the hotel. The closest bus stop is 300 meters and is called ‘’Blokhuisplein’’. Hotel Post-Plaza has his own parking lots, which you have to reserve. ... more   less
