Good base for a guys weekend out. The beds slept well and the breakfast was ample and tasty. Lovely shower, nice big room and everything was nice and clean. Nearby are plenty of things to do and the car could be parked free of charge. We highly recommend this B&B.

Our stay at the B&B "het Vogelhuis" was relaxing! The BB is very decent and snug. The rooms are very clean and the beds are amazing! The setting is unique, quiet and peaceful and also close to the city centre and the other facilities. The host was very hospitable and the breakfast service was great! We loved our stay at het Vogelhuis! And we are sure to visit this BB again!

In one word: Perfect!

What a wonderful place this is. Nicely furnished room on ground floor with your own bathroom. There is a fully equipped kitchen you can use and also a garden. The breakfasts were each time a little different. Het Vogelhuis is near the beautiful city centre of Leiden and 15 minutes by train to Shiphol airport. We would love to come back some time.

lovely vacation

We stay for 7 nights and it was a great experience: comfortable beds, good breakfast, bathroom was clean and well equip, we have access to a full equip kitchen. (felt like home). The hosts were very attentive, make us nice surprises, we have great memories. Location: near a park, short distance to center and train station (ten minutes walk), quiet and serene. We definitely recommend it. Iulia &Vlad

I have been in this bed and breakfast nearly 3 weeks last year while looking for a room. The place was wonderful in a nice great location (not far from central station, sport centre and the swamp dorm in rijnsburg) people are wonderful, jan helped me so much even to find a room in Leiden, the atmosphere is so quiet, so green and so relaxing!I really felt like at home...WONDERFUL!!!!

A perfect B&B for the independent traveller! Lovely, clean rooms with tea and coffee making facilities that gave the feeling of an apartment. Close to the railway and town centre but in a wooded, tranquil setting.

Het Vogelhuis Review

4.0 on March 28, 2010

Positive Experiences: I enjoyed 3 nights at Het Vogelhuis in Leiden - the private bath & large bedroom/sitting room on the 3rd floor felt like a private apartment. Het Vogelhuis was very quiet since it is across the street from a lovely park which you walk through to get to the train station. Jan delivered a hearty & delicious breakfast each morning and the free wireless worked great! For improvement: My only difficulty was climbing the typical Dutch circular staircase, but Jan was kind enough to help me with my bags. He said they are in the process of creating 2 rooms at garden level.

A surprising place.

We enjoyed our stay in 'Het Vogelhuis' very much. The room was very clean and cosy. There was even a small christmas-tree. We slept well in the new beds. The central station is very near and Amsterdam was easy to reach by train. We would recommend you to stay there. Leo and Shirley, Ohio USA.
