I really couldn't imagine a better bed & breakfast experience! Griet is so welcoming & warm - even our toddler was enamored of her. The bright, comfortable apartment is delightfully furnished with interesting objects & a fabulous collection of books in various languages. Breakfast was delicious, and Griet even had a little treat waiting for our son each morning.
The location is great, too - a quiet area, yet within a short & picturesque walk of central Leiden. Pieterskerk is just around the corner, as are abundant lovely restaurants. We took day trips into Delft and Amsterdam, which are very easily accessible from Leiden. In fact, it made me wonder why I've stayed in Amsterdam in the past. We will absolutely try to book Salomon's Room for our next trip to Amsterdam - no chance we'd find anything this charming there, especially for the price.
I hesitate to reiterate this, because I'm not sure whether Griet wishes to emphasize the family angle (she does have a lot of beautiful and delicate objects in the apartment, and she & Wim live directly below), but she is absolutely wonderful with children. We really felt like we were a part of the family while we were there, and she never made us feel like our jet-lagged little boy was a bother. If your children are reasonably calm, I would recommend this as the perfect family spot.More
