recommend for both business and pleasure although not an obvious place to stay it is actually quite close to the main parts of interest in the Hague.Reasonably priced for business use and excellent food.Only downside noise from early street cleaners!

This hotel is an older property with elegant renovations. My room was a mini-suite with a balcony that looked out over several embassy buildings. The room was spacious and well appointed. I enjoyed the in-room coffee while sitting on the balcony in the cool breeze as I watched the cyclists come and go. Situated on a quiet street, this hotel... More

We had an amazingly good lunch way beyond our expectations. The kitchen is very serious about its offerings and this was top notch cuisine reasonably priced. The spacious surroundings and comfortable furnishings are most pleasant too, as was the service. Tip: try the club sandwich!

The Carlton Ambassador Hotel in The Hague is an excellent and centrally located boutique style hotel. The overall service was very good and the dining was first class. The location is perfect as it is close to public transport (tram) which can take you to most places including the train station. It is also within walking distance of everything else... More

We spent two nights at the Carlton Ambassador Hotel in Den Haag. This was part of a weekend attending a family wedding and, as such, we did not need to stay in the room except to sleep - just as well as there were some problems with the room. When we first went into the room (Room 422) there was... More

We spent here only one night (without breakfast). Location is really central; almost on the beautiful way to Scheveningen but also very close to the street where you may find several good restaurants. Entrance, lobby and hotels of the room are decorated in an old but elegant style (well, can be refurbished). There are nice details inside like the old... More

Dear Guest, Thank you ever so much for this wonderful review! The Hague is a beautiful city to visit during the autumn, especially when the monumental trees in the Sophialaan slowly turn orange and red.

This hotel was recommended by a Dutch friend - it did not disappoint. Very close to restaurants, shopping & galleries. The beach a Scheveningen is a short drive.

I stayed here for business. Overall it feels pretty old fashioned, the mirrors have gold painting on them. The location is in the middle of the "embassy" district, you need to walk a little bit if you want a nice restaurant. I got a very nice room which was functional but it was not in a modern style which I... More
