“great hotel at good rate”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Nice spaces rooms (be sure to ask for one of the new rooms!). Restaurant does nice food! And if you want to eat out but don't want to go into town there is a very good restaurant right around the corner of the hotel building (literally) called "Berlage", recommended as well!

Staff is friendly here.

Wifi is free for guests.

Location, while not in the city centre, it is half way between the city centre and the beach area pf The Hague; both very accessible by public transport: tram and bus!! (I took a group of 150 people on the tram to the city centre from the hotel. That went flawless)

Again, only one less positive remark is to remember to ask for one of the new rooms and a nice view (6th floor is great) because the old ones are rather... well. Just not as nice.

Room Tip: ask for one of the "newer rooms" and with a room with a nice view; you can choose either...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

I have stayed here several times now as I visit Europol - had I remembered, I would have booked somewhere else. The hotel staff are great, but the hotel itself has little to offer. The bar is boring, the restaurant decidedly average and there is nowhere to visit within walking distance - so you are a bit of a hostage when you book in here. The rooms are bog standard and not very comfortable. Good news - BBC on TV, but terrible hairdryer. I will stay in town and get a cab in next time. Just to say again, the staff are wonderful.

Good service, clean and comfortable rooms and well situated although not in the center of town. Stayed for a short period but found the service good and the rooms extremely comfortable. The gym is OK and don't know about the restaurant because did not eat at the hotel.

I recommend this hotel.

Everything fine. Breakfast delicious. Rooms fine. If I have to say something which was not that good: The hairdryer a bit rudimentary with little power. Very good service. There is lot of space for business meetings. It might not be the best hotel for families but for business.

Was attending a conference at this hotel and everything went smoothly. the hotel service was excellent, from the reception staff to the staff serving coffee during the breaks. The hotel was clean, well located and rooms were spacious and comfortable.

The hotel is rather far away from the city center, but there is a nice park near the hotel. And lots of organizations like World forum and others. Also next to the hotel are the History museum, IMAX theatre. At the hotel you can rent a bike and go to the seaside Scheveningen. It's 5 min away by bike. Nice breakfast. Poor service.

I'm totally agree that all the stuff in the hotel are friendly, with a smile in the face.
In terms of business travel, the hotel offert the full packet. Clean and comfortables rooms for get good rest. Wireless and huge screen tv with worldwide channels for your entreteiment.Relaxing places for meeting in the lobby.
I would had been happier if the fitness area have been bigger.
