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
Stayed for the weekend at the end of June the hotel was great from the moment we arrived room was lovely clean close to the town centre everything you needed in the room we didn’t have breakfast but did have drinks outside but the service was very slow would definitely stay again when we return
The Carlton Ambassador is situated very close to the city centre, only a short walk away. The bedrooms of the hotel are outstanding, very comfortable in a very pleasing design. We did not use the restaurant facilities, reception very friendly and welcoming.
Loved it, it is now my favorite place to stay in The Hague. Walking distance to shops, restaurants, and public transport. I will recommend it to my friends and family. Excellent value for money, great breakfast, good restaurant and room service.
We found the hotel on Google and we are so glad we did. From the moment we walked in the front door we were treated with kindness and respect. A marvelous, welcoming greeting. While all of the staff were professional and attentive, two stand out, Bono and Daan. There are a tremendous asset to the hotel, please pass my comments to them.
The location is great. Around the corner from Mesdag Panorama. Down the road is a lovely street with lots of restaurants. Hotel restaurant is good and a pub downstairs. The breakfast was great. Rooms could use a bit of an update. Starting to show their age, but definitely functional.
