LILY UPPER, LEIDEN, HOLLAND - LEIDEN

25

The Lily Upper apartment is located in a renovated residence dating back to the 1600s. The apartment, with its high windows, has an airy feel and is cheerfully outfitted with comfortable, modern furnishings. Its kitchen has lots of amenities to insure your stay is comfortable. The living room is spacious and light filled.
The apartment has the added advantage of being located in the same building as the Lily Lower, making it ideal for a small group of travelers to be in the same location.

Herengracht Canal sits in the front of the building. Lovely walks along the canals start right at your doorstep.

Leiden is strategically located between Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague, putting most of Holland at your fingertips. The bus stop is just 1 minute from the vacation rental, and a 20-minute walk or 9 minute bus takes you to the Leiden train station. The residential neighborhood offers convenient shopping with a supermarket within 3 minutes walking distance.

Leiden, Holland - Leiden, Home of Lily Upper

Leiden, a picturesque Dutch city of about 114,000, is located on a branch of the Rhine River, some 30 minutes southwest of Amsterdam. Laced with peaceful canals and gabled Dutch houses, Leiden is most famous for its university, which is the oldest and most renowned in the Netherlands. Leiden played an important role in Dutch history and in the development of Dutch painting, so it is no surprise that some of the country’s best museums and galleries are located here. The city has had its share of famous residents: Rembrandt was born here; Jan Steen painted here; and Albert Einstein taught here.

Leiden is a very walkable city and has maintained a small-town atmosphere. Visitors enjoy a variety of ethnic restaurants, cozy cafés, bookshops, an outdoor market held twice a week, shopping in a pedestrian precinct, as well as banks, ATMs and several large supermarkets.

There is much to do and see in Leiden, but remember that all of the Netherlands is just at your doorstep: Amsterdam is only 30 minutes by train, Delft 20 minutes, Utrecht 45 minutes, Brussels and Brugge in Belgium 2.5 to 3 hours.

And in case you wondered…yes, Leiden also has a windmill, which is now a fascinating museum.

"Many of my friends with whom I shared my diary noticed that I really thought it was my best trip to Europe - and the Untour way is the best way. Lenneke's orientation is so well done that you need only to relax and go in any direction you want each day. I would recommend this Untour to anyone." - T. Badkins

An Explanation of the Ratings:
The first column of figures is the highest score possible in each category. The column on the far right is the score for this particular apartment in this category. For this set of ratings, we have asked every Untour staff person who has seen the apartment to rate the individual features. Many of these staff people have been in a position to hear reports (good and bad) from customers over the years, so they offer a particularly well-informed perspective. Nevertheless, customer ratings will be included in the overall ratings as soon as possible.

Please keep in mind that tastes vary. These ratings give an overall sense of how most people feel about a factor; you are in the best position to know if your tastes and requirements are likely to be in the mainstream of opinion or if you have particular needs. If you have any questions about the meaning of any of the factors rated, or about this apartment, please call our office toll-free at 1-999-868-6871.
