I stayed here for 3 nights on a break with an old friend to explore The Hague and it's restaurants. The Carlton Ambassador is in a perfect location for the town centre and it's shops and eateries and is very near a tram stop if you want the harbour and beach at Scheveningen. The hotel staff are the most friendly... More

The hotel has very cosy rooms and is very clean. It lies in a quiet area but is very close to the city center and only 3 minutes to the tram station. The customer service is excellent. I would definitly come here again! Highly recommended.

I regularly visit the Hague and the only disappointment I have suffered with the Carlton is when it is fully booked and I have to stay somewhere else. None of the other hotels I have used in the Hague or Scheveningen come close to comparing with the character, comfort and customer service levels that the Carlton offers. It is centrally... More

Hospitality at it best; we selected this hotel due to its location and good reviews of its restaurant (travelling with a one year old limits your flexibility when it comes to restaurants). However, the staff stood out for us the most. They were extremely friendly, also to our little daughter and always willing to help out. We asked whether we... More

Dear Thijs (and family), We really enjoyed your stay in our hotel! Your little daughter managed to impress everyone and the "Chef's table" was the least we could do. Hopefully you will find your way back to our hotel when your daughter is ready for another culinary treat or when you are longing for a romantic getaway again! With best... More

We arrived about 9pm after a tough day and were delighted with the freindly and helpful service from the staff on the front desk, as well as the very comfortable room and quiet central location. We would definitely stay there again.

The hotel is clean and nice and well situated close to the centre. The service is good and attentioned. Our room was on the first floor and the single-glassed windows let the traffic noise pass. Fortunately it was a quiet evening!

Dear Guest, Thank you for your kind words and compliments, it was a pleasure to have you as our guests! The beds in our Signature Rooms on the first floor are outrageously comfortable, so it would be a shame if the traffic noice would have kept you awake.

Clean, quiet, friendly staff, good breakfast and restaurant, plus a good location, all make this hotel a very good choice. The room was very comfortable with a good bed. The location is good, about a ten minute walk to the downtown.

The few visits I have made over the years were further confirmed by staying here. Excellent rooms. Can't fault anything. Staff committed and engaging.. The location is perfect. A short walk from the centre of the city centre and in a quiet area. You won't be disappointed staying here.
