A group of us stayed here while we toured the Hague. Our rooms were fresh, spotlessly clean and newly furnished. The beds were really comfortable. We had a good balcony with comfortable furniture on it. The bathroom was spotlessly clean and there was plenty of hot water whenever we wanted it. The service was friendly, kind and helpful. Breakfast was... More

After the horror stories on the Internet and friends who stayed here before my expectations were very low. However, it was not too bad at all. Check in was fine. Stairs a bit steep and rooms are ok. Shower could be bigger and get some modern tiles. Breakfast was ok, overall pleasant and if management keeps it up like this... More

Its a new furnished hotel with a new name called "New City Hotel".. I had two nights staying in a double bed room there with my boyfriend about a month ago. everything... More

After reading the other reviews on this hotel, the hotel actually went up in my estimation, all I can say is that if you like bugs that is bed bugs, book in there and take them home with you and maybe just maybe after four months with them at your home and spending lots of money trying to get rid...

I am travelling quite a bit but THAT place was actually the worst I have experienced. 75 € for a double room- the room was dirty, stains all over the carpet, curtains full of stains; room was under the roof- someone tried to paint water stains over- some kind of white whishy washy all over the ceiling and the walls....

This weekend my family and i stayed at the City Hotel, Sheveningen, the stay at this hotel went from bad to worse, through out the course of the week-end. Firstly we were greeted by a man in his pyjamas at check in, which i consider to be extremely unprofessional, this man then quoted us a different price to what had... More

Ah, the trials and tribulations of being a single traveller on a budget... Back where I come from, in the land of hills and sensible footwear, we have these little things called "fire regulations". Now, either similar legal requirements haven't quite reached this part of Scheveningen yet, or else the Chinese owners of the City Hotel are running their business... More

I had to stay at the City Hotel for one night, had no other choice. The rooms are dark, really old and run down. 70euros for a double room breakfast not included seems too pricey for the physical condition of the room.

Hotel City would be ok if you were paying HOSTEL prices. It is more of a low end lodging. The sheets and the bathroom were clean, but the rest is down hill. The furniture is extremely old and worn: holes in the two sitting chairs, a hole in the curtain, the rug was so old it had a black tar... More
