Arrival in Leiden

By train.
The easiest way from the station to the hotel is by taxi (estimated cost: Dfl. 15,-). Convenient and not expensive (Dfl. 7,-) is the "trein-taxi" (a special taxi, possibly shared with other people). To take a train taxi, buy a trein-taxi voucher ("trein-taxi kaartje") together with your train ticket. You can also take the bus: no. 30 (direction Oegsgeest) to Het Witte Huis; nos. 31, 41 (direction Katwijk) or no. 40 (direction Noordwijk) to Bastion. The bus is paid with a "strippenkaart", which is valid in The Netherlands for all public transport except trains. A strippenkaart can be bought at all railway stations.
By car.
Both hotels are situated near the Highway A44. Take the Oegstgeest/Rijnsburg exit (see the map).
