Nice quiet place to stay. Certainly nothing fancy but clean and good price.

Friendly nice bar below. It's in a very nice neighborhood. Super good breakfast. The stairway is a killer but most are in NL. I've gone back here for years. I know the area and like it very much. Not always serving food even though its called a cafe but when they do, it is really good.
Excellent hotel for a cheap price

Very friendly staff. Super location, in the city centre. Basic rooms but you have everything you need. (If you want 5 stars, then you have to go somewhere else and pay for 5 stars) Breakfast ok. Not expensive. Car parking for 10 EUR / night (from 12:00 day arrival, till 11:30 day departure).
Dare to be basic.

Stayed in Leeuwarden for 2 nights off season in January in Hotel Bar 't Anker, a typical good old inn. We'd one of the more expensive rooms (15), which was basic, but fair sized and had it all, though the TV location is a bit odd. The sink was in the room (OK with us), but shower/toilet room was kind of crampy. Rooms pretty quiet and simple straight forward breakfast was included.
When you book this hotel, it's recommended to include a Thursday night. It's practice evening for the local Shanty Singers and they go on singing in the bar, till in the the last man/woman leaves the bar. Don't be afraid to sign along or if you don't know the lyrics, just move your body and dance. You don't find such place elsewhere in Leeuwarden. Pool table available in the bar, locals very friendly. Staff is very friendly too. Perfect for 1-3 nights.
Lowest thinkable standard.

GOOD: Low price, central location, had not expected such a good breakfast, the external shower was fine. Clean.
BAD: Impression of a dark and dirty place. People who need "standard" should stay away. One of our single rooms, no.1, was the kind you only use one night. And that is if you arrive late, and leave early. Dark and depressing. Noise from kitchen and bar. Sharing toilet with bar guests. Think it earlier has been a place storing food or something, in the middle of the building. Our other single, no.4, was good for a week stay. Window from floor to roof, facing the wide street. Fantastic bright. Both rooms had the terrible plastic between sheet and matress. (As in most 3 and 4-star hotels nowadays.) Took it away to avoid sweating. In my total score I ignore the terrible room no.1. The ratio what you get and what you pay, was unbeatable. Their garage, 120 meters away, 9,5€, seemed safe.
a bad hostel with the price of an hotel

Its central position is its only advantage. The price is definetly too high compared to its value. Moreover, the room was really cold and, when we complained asking to change the room, the answer was: "you probably come from a warm country".
Is this the way to deal with a client?!
