Interior design legend Jacques Garcia is behind the knockout glam décor of this centrally located 92-room hotel, housed in an 1850s palace. Guest rooms are fitted out with lavish colors inspired by royalty–rich purple, gold, scarlet– and feature plush floor-to-ceiling drapes, elaborate chandeliers, and marble bathrooms with soaking tubs and rain showers. Sip hand-crafted cocktails in the swanky bar, with its gorgeous jewel tones, leaded windows, and high ceilings before heading to the restaurant, where the food is as rich as the surroundings: think poached duck liver, oysters on ice, and truffle-marinated guinea fowl.
In the Area
Soak up the extraordinarily rich culture of this city with a visit to the Mauritshuis, where you can admire the work of Vermeer and Rembrandt. Discover Holland in miniature at the adorable Madurodam, a Dutch city built on a tiny scale, including miniature landmarks and an elected mayor. Cap off the day with schnitzels or croque monsieur Dutch style at industrial-chic Dudok Brasserie, where you can expect to rub shoulders with pols and hipsters alike.
How to Get There
Des Indes is still an hotel with the style of the time it was build (1881). Beautyfull rooms with great beds. Also the location in the old city center is very good. You can visit every tourist attraction by foot.
I am pretty certain that it must be very, very good. He is listed among others in a short film that plays as you turn on the TV in your room. And the TV being the least beautiful accessory in the room, is slightly tucked away to the side in Room 25. This is one of the most gorgeous rooms we have ever had the pleasure to spend time in, and I am fairly sure this is not their top of the line room. From the bathroom, with no scarcity of hot water, to the slate floor, you will find the provided slippers handy on it, to the tall ceiling, with stucco designs, elegant furnishings, desk, chairs, of which there are three, this room is large. The draperies are stunning in the morning light and although there is a bit of noise from the street, some construction next door it seems, it is generally very quiet during sleeping hours. The canopy bed, king, is warm and inviting after a hard day of being a tourist. The staff are excellent, from the front door, as we pulled up in our car, he was right there to help us. Parking in their small lot is directly in front of the hotel, but does not intrude on the look of the hotel. The front desk In assessing if the room was ready and guiding us through the check in process. A short tour of the hotel and what we might need later during our stay, the reception did a commendable job. We might have needed further instructions in operation of the heating and cooling systems, and the various lights, in where the switches were located. There is a mini bar and a tall decorated amour that serves as a closet, but drawer space is limited, a tiny bit. Everyone to whom we have sent photos seems to approve as much as we do. A delight all the way around. I would return if ever in the area again.
We chose the wrong hotel in the Hague...fell for a charming website and outdated advice from people who hadn't seen this hotel in years. We got online and found the Des Indes right away. My husband made some calls, and got us a wonderful room. We packed up and moved that day and were so glad we did. The hotel is beautiful, service excellent and the food was wonderful. Next , the location was right next to delightful shops and small restaurants filled with locals . If THEY are eating at these places, they have to be good ! My husband is taking clients to the Hague later this summer, and he has already booked rooms . I would be happy to return....
This has to be the best hotel in the Netherlands including those in Amsterdam. The service is faultless. From arrival to departure nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner all taken in the hotel restaurant were more the expected and the service without question magnificent.
Room was fine with a comfy bed and fine pillows. Room service delivered promptly.
A question about air conditioning was answered promptly and a question about medication was resolved for my wife.
What more can one say. Try it please if you stay in Den Haag.
I had a stop over in Amsterdam and decided to check out the Hague. A picturesque village, with quaint streets and small canals, it is a memorable experience. The Hotel Des Indes is a spectacular historic hotel with antique furniture in the room and quaint views. Felt like royalty in my bed. High tea is amazing. Worth the trip out of Amsterdam!
