This townhouse-style boutique hotel exudes chic warmth, from its whitewashed exterior and jaunty striped awnings, to its cocktail hour, when you’ll be happy to settle in front of the lounge’s cozy open fire with an aperitif chosen from the “Moodbook,” an all-day menu of snacks, main meals, and beverages. In the Henricus restaurant, Edward Kreuger whips up fabulous tasting menus featuring luxe ingredients like pheasant and oysters, the perfect fit for the city’s well-heeled gastronomes. Retire to a suite that’s Old World without being fussy–think toile wallpaper, striped silk cushions, and bathrooms decorated with blue and white Delft tiles.
In the Area
Explore some of this stately city’s treasures, starting with Lange Voorhout Palace. Fancy something a bit more mind-bending? Visit the Escher Museum, devoted to the intricate, surreal works of Dutch artist M. C. Escher. Continue the cultural edification with Panorama Mesdag, a giant cylindrical painting by Hendrik Willem Mesdag that is housed in its own custom-designed museum. To digest all that cool art, head to Garoeda, one of the Hague’s most celebrated Indonesian restaurants–a legacy of the Dutch colonization of the Dutch East Indies.
How to Get There
We had two rooms: The royal one was spacious and very comfortable. The other one was rather small, but adequate. The place was very clean and all the staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is perfect because it is within walking distance from the very center. Its terrace is nice if the weather permits. The food was OK but not exactly what I expected as regards some dishes. I highly recommend this hotel.
The best place to be in Den Haag! A small and lovely hotel with wonderful staff, a great breakfast and charming rooms. You can walk to all interesting places and also public transport is nearby. In twenty minutes you can reach Delft or the beach by tram. We'll come back.
We stayed at this lovely hotel for a trip where I was working but my wife was sightseeing and wanting the beach. It is a lovely place with friendly staff and great food. It is clean and we really value that. We stayed during the hottest week of the year and the air conditioning was great!!
On a small downside the rooms were a bit small which I was fine about but was defiantly noticed by my wife.
If you want to be in a good, quiet location and easy to get around The Hague you cannot go far wrong!
