Three nights in Nieuw Minerva. Occasion: Rembrandt exhibitions in The Hague and Amterdam, with Leiden the ideal place to stay. Very friendly, quiet room (no view, but we prefer the quiet), good bed - slept like logs. Good breakfast. Nice, old Dutch style hotel going well with the Rembrandt paintings.
