“A gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

I visited het Paleis Hotel last week, I was so impressed with everything! It's simply gorgeous inside, the rooms are very elegant, nothing was spared to make the guest feel special, like royalty! Breakfast was great, little antique silver teapots, silver sugar bowl on the table etc complimented the food. It was all a wonderful experience.

Very nice, I definitely will be back!!

Room Tip: If you want to feel like a king or queen at an affordable price, this it it!

This deluxe hotel is in the heart of the sightseeing, shopping and restaurant scene in Den Haag! Reasonably priced for the excellent location, decor and housekeeping cleanliness, the staff is very pleasant and helpful. We would definitely stay here again.

I was in the Hague for business for just two days. I had no idea where to stay, but the guidance provided on Trip Advisor was right on track. I loved my stay at the Paleis hotel. The hotel is situated on a small pedestrian street in the city center. The neighborhood is lovely with 17th century charm and architecture. It is about a 10-15 minute and 11 euro cab ride - depending on traffic, but one could take tram 17 from central station just 2 stops and it is a 5-7 minute walk.

The hotel maintains its historic air with tasteful and elegant decor and real room keys, which one can deposit at the front desk when going out, rather than card keys that one finds at most hotels. The front desk staff was warm and welcoming. The room was a good size, impeccably clean, and the bed was large and quite comfortable.

Around the corner from the hotel is a little restaurant called Pastis that has wonderful live music on Monday evenings; however, the music is not disruptive in the room.

The only two recommendations that I could offer to the hotel would be to have a mini-fridge in the room and to offer some sort of recycling bin in the room.

From the moment I stepped into this small, elegant hotel, every staff member did everything in their power to make mine a memorable stay. Situated on a pedestrian street in the old part of town, it has you in walking distance of all the best sites and restaurants. My room on the top (third) story looked over tiled rooftops at the Palace and its gardens. The room was nicely decorated; everything was in perfect condition; the bathroom was new, attractive and functional. Breakfast, in a charming, light-filled room, was the typical--and delicious--Dutch spread with eggs prepared to order. Note: This is not a business hotel. Don't expect business center, fitness facilities, bar, etc. Instead, go for the feeling of being in old Den Haag and for the individual attention and care the lovely staff provide.

It's was fantastic staying at the Hotel again. It is a classy and elegant place. The bed was very comfortable. The staff is very friendly and helpfull. The cabs (and drivers) that were ordered for us by the reception were also very pleasant. There are a lot of nice little shops and restaurants in the area.

We decided to visit the Hague for one of our 'weekend abroad' motorbike trips, and were absolutely delighted by the warm reception and the 'nothing was too much to ask' attitude. We enjoyed a superior room, which was comfortable, clean and thoughtfully appointed. The bed was wonderfully 'huge'. All of the staff were friendly, helpful and spoke perfect English. Breakfast was included in the price with a varied choice of continental and typically English foods. The location was perfect for exploring the Hague and particularly pleasant as it was situated in the old part of town, near the Royal palace. Whilst we didn't have time to travel further afield, the Palais hotel would be a good location for visiting other well known Dutch places.

Room Tip: We were on the third floor and our room was very quiet, although there was a very slight hum from a...

Because of overbooking of the hotel that we reserved at home we went by coincidence to this hotel for a short break.

Our impressions in highlights:

A village atmosphere with Royal allure in the heart of the Hague's centre.

A relaxed reception that that gave us a feeling of coming home; concrete answers and further useful informations.

A special and warm décor with the good middle between "less and more". A spectacle of beautiful colors.

A wonderful and comfortable bedroom with a spacious bathroom where you still like to go inside.

The lobby is top, the newspapers are already waiting. A good place to relax.

What a delicious breakfast to start the day ! The personal service there gives you another "Palace feeling".

The management and staff: gastronomic professionals who see it as a passion to serve their guests.

The immediate vicinity of the hotel: the most beautiful area of the Hague. Green and historical, art galleries, antiquaries, museums, restaurants, terraces ... and the beaches almost on your doorstep.

Downsides?
Associated with any place like this in the middle of the city. Parking on some distance and very costly.
The parking operators are not really concerned with tourism.

Do you want to find downsides?
Search than to what is not good, so you don't see what there really is. We have not done so.

The Palace Hotel in our opinion: "A Hague hopje" among the Quality Lodgings !

Thanks to the whole team for our particularly stay ! We would like to come back.
