After visiting the Alma Tadema exhibition in the Frisian Museum we had lunch in the converted Post office. Relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff, good food with a Frisian flavour. A place to feel at home and a place to return soon.

We enjoyed our weekend at the Post Plaza hotel and all we can say is that we were delighted by the customer service. The staff at the reception desk were very nice at all times and so was the staff at the Grand Cafe (bar-restaurant which belongs to the Hotel). The hotel is simply beautiful and very cozy. Has a...

We stayed one night in Leeuwarden, visiting an exhibition in the Frisian Museum. As the hotel we wanted to book was full, we reserved a room in the Post Plaza. The service at the reception desk is friendly and helpful. We booked an upgrade to a room at the first floor overlooking the street. The room was spacious and comfortable,...

We have stayed here for one night with the Alma-Tadema exhibition arrangement, hotel room, dinner at the grand café and entrance to the museum. The staff is really friendly, it is absolutely different than service in Amsterdam and surroundings. The room is spacious, well equipped, bed was good, it was dark and quiet. Breakfast is also great. The dinner in...

This is our second visit to Leeuwarden, previously staying at the Hampshire Orange Hotel which is another nice hotel near the train station. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Post Plaza Hotel offering great service, comfortable rooms and a quiet street location. Others have talked about the building and its history so I will skip that information. We were...

This hotel was the best overall experience out of the seven hotels we stayed in on this trip and I must say no other hotel was bad or even average. The place somehow manages to gracefully combine the historic nature of the building with the state-of-the-art contemporary design and all modern conveniences while being spotlessly clean and tidy. Our room...

Brilliant hotel in the middle of Leeuwarden - easy walking distance anywhere. Our room was spacious, clean and quiet. The staff were brilliant - so happy to help- and a great advert for their country. The only downside was the Internet connection which could be temperamentally slow at times

Stayed here with my wife for a couple of nights on a visit to Leeuwarden and we were totally thrilled with the attention to detail and helpfulness of the staff as well as the clean and luxurious hotel. The Netherlands is a lovely country and this hotel made it even better. The rooms were spacious and nothing was too much...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Post-Plaza is located in the city center of Leeuwarden. Recently the hotel has undergone a major renovation. The old post office building from Leeuwarden has been converted into a new and trendy Grand Cafe. In the old post office and the adjoining Gratama Bank are 82 luxury hotel rooms. Both building are monumental and connected to each other with a walkway made of glass. Our 82 luxury hotel rooms are equipped with all necessities such as flat screen TV, safe, coffee & thee facilities, luxurious bath room and free WiFi. All of our hotel rooms are non-smoking. All of our hotel guests have free access to our wellness facilities. In our wellness you will find a fitness, jacuzzi, sauna and a Turkish steam bath. An additional service is a massage and/or treatment which is bookable at our esthetician. In our Grand Cafe we will serve our breakfast, lunch and dinner. It is open on daily basis from 07:00 AM until 01:00 AM. Here we will serve you the most delicious drinks and bites. Our Barista is burning his own coffee beans and the waitress is preparing the most surprising beverages. Hotel Post-Plaza is situated in a quiet bystreet just a 2 minutes walk from the city center. The former prison, which is nowadays a cultural center, ‘’De Blokhuispoort’’ is in the extension of the Tweebaksmarkt, where Hotel Post-Plaza is located. On a very short distance you can find the Frisian museum and the ceramics museum. The railway station is only 1200 meters from the hotel. The closest bus stop is 300 meters and is called ‘’Blokhuisplein’’. Hotel Post-Plaza has his own parking lots, which you have to reserve. ... more   less
