From post office to hotel
Posted Aug 20, 2016 on Hotels
This hotel is situated in the centre of Leeuwarden and is about a 12 min walk from the station and 15 min to all the main attractions. Leeuwarden has lots of cafes and restaurants and it felt safe walking around at night. The room was comfortable with a good-size bed and television and I appreciated the fact that it had a desk and reading light, as I had some work to finish. I used the fitness equipment in the cellar, but thought this area could be used more effectively, if it offered some smaller bits of equipment, like mats and weights. Having a sauna and hot tub available was lovely. The hotel used to be the old post office and was converted sensitively to keep the character of the old building. The main hall, for example, is now a 'Grand cafe' ; a beautiful space with high ceiling and wooden beams. It has a large table with lots of newspapers, which I did not get to use, but looked inviting.
