City Hotel Nieuw Minerva is a characteristic hotel right in the middle the historical centre of Leiden.
The hotel is located in an authentic canal house on the Oude Rijn within walking distance of shops, restaurants, museums and the station. The historic character can be found in the design of the hotel rooms.

City Hotel Nieuw Minerva has a long and rich history.
The six connected buildings date from the 16th century and have long been used as a warehouse. In what is now the breakfast room, a beer wholesaler with café was established in the 19th century.

The historic buildings all have their own history and the design of the rooms fits in beautifully.
Of course the rooms are equipped with all modern conveniences that you can expect in a 3-star hotel.

Some rooms have a special theme: the Rembrandt room contains an exact replica of the Rembrandt van Rijn box bed made by the current owner of the hotel. There is also a room furnished with furniture from the famous singer from Leiden, Mary Servaes.
The Rose Room, the Delft Blue Room and the Engelenbak: all rooms with a special design.

Breakfast is served buffet style.
A small menu is available in the hotel restaurant, and you can enjoy a drink in the bar.
