The room was very nice and clean. The service was great and staff was very friendly. Breakfast and diner at Wannée was also very good. It is only a 10 minute walk to the lovely centre of Leeuwarden. I would choose this hotel again if I visit Leeuwarden again.

If you prefer a very outstanding service by a young staff in a modern and very clean hotel, in a calm surrounding, you should stay at this place. It is easy to find and car parking bears no problems as well as visiting downtown in a short time. Breakfast has to be payed as an extra. Service staff is very...

Large and clean rooms. The staff is always helpfull and friendly. It's a hotel run by students, meaning that sometimes checkin can take a bit more time. Only downside is the water saving shower heads. Because of the large bathroom, it can be cold taking a shower when little water is coming out.

Very pleased with the firm but comfortable beds and clean rooms. Breakfast was delicious. Only downside was that the doors, on the way towards the room, are not automated. It's a Hassel to bring your suitcases back when checking out. During check in the personnel helped us perfectly!

This Hotel is suated on the campus, outside of Leeuwarden, 15 minutes from city centre. All employees are students and try to do their job well and work for you, very friendly and helpful, the restaurant very good, modern and good wine list.

Stayed here for two nights, wasn't what I was expecting at all. The hotel is part of a school and all of the staff were students of the hospitality school. The hotel only has 18 rooms, although it's hoping to expand. The bedrooms are fairly basic, clean but a little tired in terms of decor. The reception and bar areas...

I stayed for a couple of days in Leeuwarden, at Stenden Hotel. I have no complains about the hotel, except for the location aspect, that is a bit far from the city centre. On the other hand, everything else was excellent, especially the very friendly and helpful staff and also the breakfast.

It was a bit expensive, but worth the money. The room was very big and had anything we needed. The breakfast in the morning was delicious and very well organised. The staff was friendly and professional.

We really enjoyed all of it: the hospitality, the dinner and the breakfast. The room was, though not very special (we had an upgrade), but very much okay. Good beds, curtains, light etc etc. The kitchen is very natural, as well as for dinner as for breakfast. Top stay!
