“Excellent customer service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

I stayed here for one night on business. Though I was only there for a short time, the service I received was absolutely fantastic. From reception, to room service, to the bar - the staff were friendly and polite.

The room itself was large and comfortable. My only critique is that there were two twin beds pushed together, instead of a king size bed. That didn't matter too much to me though, as I was only staying for one night.

The bar was nice and had an extensive range of beverages. The breakfast in the morning was good too.

Would certainly stay here again when I am back.

This is simply one of the best hotels I have stayed in.

Located in the Diplomatic quarter within easy reach of the city centre attractions and trom stop for a trip to the nearby seaside at Schevenigen.

Restaurant excellent including champagne for breakfast if that appeals. Fresh food and fruit in great abundance.

A very large and comfortable room, beautifully decorated.

Stayed here in June 2012. Wonderful location, very nice and well-appointed rooms, very caring staff who went out of their way to take care of guests and give tips on what to see and do. Would return again.

We stayed in the hotel this month and we are happy with it. It is comfortable and nice boutique hotel, and if we go to the Hague again this is where we would be staying. It is close to the center yet it is in a quiet area which makes it perfect for resting. The hotel inside is also quiet, very friendly staff which makes you feel welcomed.

Two colleagues stayed in this hotel. Well travelled, but first time in The Hague, and they really enjoyed it. We had lunch together o nthe terrace. The dagmenu was superb. Warm, mixed fish salad, followed by strawberries and cream. Fresh, and beautifully served.

The Carlton Ambassador is very nice place. I needed a place to stay in The Hague for a business trip and the Carton was recommended to me by a friend.
The hotel is located relatively close (walking distance) to the city centre, but there is no direct need to leave the hotel at all. They have a very good restaurant and a nice bar where I was able to enjoy some of the finer whiskys from their huge collection.
The staff is friendly and helpfull and always available. The rooms have all you'd expect in a hotel room. They are clean and the beds are comfortable.
If I ever need a place to pend the night in The Hague again (business or pleasure) I will surely return to the Carton Ambassador.

My wife and I spent four days at this excellent and cozy hotel in The Hague, where I had a committee retreat. It is located in a quiet and distinguished neighborhood, but not far from the main city attractions. The Mesdag Panorama (worth visiting) is just a few meters away. There is excellent shopping in the vicinity. We were given a very nice room, although quite far from the elevators. This forced us to several long walks through a very cold hallway (as one door facing a balcony was always open). Except for this detail and the scarce closet space, everything was perfect. The breakfast menu was abundant and of good quality. We also enjoyed two formal dinners at the hotel restaurant which were truly outstanding, due to the food's quality and the excellent table service. The staff was extremely helpful and considered. The room our group used for its meetings was excellent, well supplied and attended to by the hotel staff.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms too far from the elevators.
