Over 2200 participants will come to Leiden for The International Conference of Asia Scholars (ICAS) this 15-19 July! As the programme lasts for five days, you might have to book a hotel in Holland. Hotels in the Leiden area are near ICAS locations and offer a better price-quality ratio than Amsterdam hotels. Here is a list of brand hotels in Leiden available during ICAS 11. Additionally, there is a short explanation on how to reach the ICAS locations.


Hotels in Leiden Centre

Starting at the train station it is very easy to get to the ICAS locations. You can walk to Lipsius Building (Faculty of Humanities) in just 15 minutes, Kamerlingh Onnes Building (Faculty of Law) in 20 minutes.


Our recommendation:



Fletcher Wellness-Hotel Leiden


Budget Hotels ***

These hotels are a little further away from Leiden’s city centre, but are affordable three star hotel options. You would need a bus to get to the city centre, which will take 25-40 minutes from Oegstgeest and 15-25 minutes from Leiden-Voorschoten.


Our recommendation:



Bastion Hotel Leiden-Voorschoten


Luxury Hotels ****

  1. Golden Tulip Leiden Centre (only available in weekends before and after ICAS)
  2. Van der Valk Hotel De Gouden Leeuw Voorschoten (available during ICAS!)
