Located in the fashionable embassy district, the hotel offers everything for a leisurely holiday stay - impeccably clean rooms, flawless service, and sumptuous breakfast. The only problem we encountered was parking, which was not always readily available. Otherwise - very highly recommended.

This outstanding hotel is situated just next to the city center. No disturbing noise and still close to shops and restaurants. We stayed in room 414 which is on the top floor.

Great hotel with a reasonable size, friendly staff always ready to help. Located near great restaurants. I enjoyed staying there and will strongly recommend to people who want quiet place and space to rest while being in central Hague. They do have good food and a nice bar.

I stayed 3 nights. The first was an uncomfortable sleep because the mattress was uneven. The following night, I asked for the mattress topper to be removed, suspecting it was the cause of the unevenness. After another uncomfortable sleep, it turned out to be the mattress itself which was split in two smaller mattresses, one of which was a different...

A great welcome to a very comfortable hotel with a friendly, family atmosphere. Situated in a quiet leafy area with a view to the International Court of Justice, it is an ideal location for access to centre of town (a 20 minute walk) and to the train station. The breakfast was very good although a tad expensive for its size....

Very nice, classic hotel in a quiet neighbourhood within easy walking distance of the city centre, shops etc. Excellent service. Rooms are in style with the old character of the building, so don't expect huge rooms. My corner room 312 had windows overlooking the Italian & Canadian embassy as well as the side street. Not much to say as far...
