Discover Leeuwarden and surroundings

Oranje Hotel Leeuwarden – Hampshire Eden is very centrally situated, close to Leeuwarden’s historic city centre. On leaving the hotel you’ll find yourself in an outdoor museum within just a few minutes. Take the time for an extensive city walk along the monumental city walls, through parks and past houses and churches. And climb the slanting Oldehove tower, with its beautiful views across the city. A few tips:

The Fries Museum is comprehensive: archaeology, modern and contemporary art, and a collection about the spy extraordinary Mata Hari, who was born in Leeuwarden as Margaretha Zelle. The Fries Verzetsmuseum is also part of the Fries Museum. Natuurmuseum Fryslân is a great day out for the whole family. You can see a sperm whale from close quarters, take a flight above Fryslân or walk on the bottom of a ditch.

Stadsschouwburg De Harmonie is one of the largest theatres in the Netherlands. It has an extensive range of large and smaller performances (theatre, music, dance, musicals and cabaret).

The history of De Prinsentuin begins in 1648. Today, the park is the place to relax in the summer months and enjoy concerts and festivals.

On the water
Walked enough? Then why not discover Leeuwarden by boat? You can hire small boats from various boat hire companies.

In Aqua Zoo Friesland children come face-to-face with fur seals, seals, penguins and other sea animals. And they can really let themselves go in the playground.

If we ever hear the historic words “it giet oan” then Leeuwarden is the place to be. Because it’s the start and finish of the Elfstedentocht.

“Friendly & Luxurious Hotel”

First off... Stephanie, the front desk reception clerk, was awesome. She was so friendly, positive, helpful, and I loved that she always had a smile on her face. I loved this hotel. My husband and I stayed here while in Leeuwarden visiting with his best friends. We had a nice room with the view of the train station which is conveniently located right across the street. Nightlife, restaurants, and bars are within walking distance because it is located in the city center. We ate at the hotel restaurant... it was quite a delicious experience... GREAT food and service there too. The room was pretty clean... the only thing wrong was the build up of black dust that fell on me while I was in the shower. It came down from the ceiling when I accidentally pointed the shower head in that direction while putting it back on the handle thingy. OTHERWISE, the room was SPOTLESS and VERY clean. The hotel has free and paid wifi in the rooms... We requested a King sized bed for our room and they made it happen. We decided that we're definitely staying here again when we visit Leeuwarden in the future. Also, we've already recommended this hotel to our friends AND family!

“4-Star Hotel with 5-Star Service”

The rooms are clean and nice and modern, but that's now what make me rate the Oranje Hotel so wonderful. The service from all the staff was friendly and excellent. Room service was delightful. The hotel restaurant delicious. The location brilliant. The only "fly in the ointment" was that housekeeping did a rather poor cleaning on our two night stay - on the second day the coffee cups had not replaced nor were the coffee & condiment packets, etc. Little things in the scheme of a great hotel experience.
Owner Response of Oranje Hotel Leeuwarden - Hampshire Eden

However we will take your points about the room cleaning at heart and discuss them within our team! Hopefully we may welcome you again next time you will visit Leeuwarden! With kind regards,

Friends getaway

Apart from helpful reception staff this is a truly ghastly little Hotel. Service in the bars and restaurant is at best perfunctory (in fact waiting for 20 minutes in the bar on 25.03.14 yielded no service at all); breakfast (entirely self-service) is dishonestly expensive at 15 Euros a head; the rooms (second rate & tired with poly-ceiling tiles) are so dark you can't see your hand in front of your face - and the same applies to the common parts. The bathrooms are tiny; only soap in a wall dispenser & the heating/air-con is noisy and does not work properly. The TV choice available is slight & the TVs too small. Internet connection is a palavour. Overall the impression is that this is a Hotel being run for the convenience of the staff/management rather than the customers. Do yourself a favour and go somewhere else. ""Provincial" hardly does this awful place justice. I am here now - I wish I wasn't.

“Quite good, could be better”

The position of this hotel is absolutely great, just opposite the central station, near the main shopping streets and 15 min on foot from expo halls. I liked my single room, it has all the necessary amenities. Cleanliness is also on a very good level. I have to comment though that the soundproof in the rooms is not very good, you can hear everything from the hallways cause of the small empty space between the floor and bottom of the doors. Also, you can hear people speaking in the rooms next to you if they speak a bit louder. Breakfast was standard although there should probably be a bigger choice of food and drinks. Staff sometimes a bit too stern but mostly courteous, promptly helped me with one particular demand. I would probably stay there again.

“The pictures are somewhat misleading, but the hotel is nice by European standards”

I stayed at this property while on business for 3 nights in room 147 a queen bedded room. PRO's+ Clean Good Service room size larger than others I've seen Very good food Nice, functional shower The town is beautiful and I would encourage walking around in the evening near the canals. Beware of rabid bikers. CON's Small TV small work desk with hard chair is not compatible for long stretches on laptop Finicky internet Mediocre bed, left side very soft, average pillows Overall I would rate this room 85/100 some noises creep through the walls, but overall the room is often quiet. I would consider staying here again in the future.
