“Luxury at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

Grand Entrance and greatly designed room. Room amenities such as espresso machine, cd playing system next to bed - exceed epectations. Bed was amazingly comfortable. I love the bathroom color and fixtures chosen with underfloor heating- fit for a king and queen. Altough one comment - the bath was slightly high to step in for a medium tall person and cleaning of the bathroom could improve. Breakfast was good however limited and highly priced for what is served. On the positive side - a great selection of fresh fruit juices. We found no problem with parking - great service from the doorman, we found him to be very attentive. Overall great stay and we will definitely come back if in the hague.

Amazing rooms - decor and convenience, one of the most luxurious and beautiful interiors I've stayed. Great location in the historic part. When I was checking in the staff offered free drinks for me an my colleague on the occasion of my recent birthday.

I have just returned from a lovely luxury weekend stay at this hotel. The service was excellent - we arrived before the standard check in time but our room was ready early which was a bonus and what a lovely room they gave us. We were on the 3rd floor in a superior room. Although not a huge room, it was in a grand style. The bed was really comfy and it was nice to have the extras like an espresso machine, slippers, bathrobes, a card with the weather and temperature for the next day, some tea for 'sleeping well', and a turn down service where they even put on a bit of relaxing music for when we got back to the room. Anything I rang down for, the reception was quick to bring up to the room.
We ate in the hotel restaurant and the service was great. In particular, Arjan looked after us very well and tempted us into the chef's tasting menu which was definitely worth it! the restaurant is decorated in a really stunning style and the food was wonderful. We also had a lovely cocktail at the hotel bar and found Michael very good in helping us choose one.
The hotel has a great location not far from some lovely restaurants, shops and bars.

The one thing I would fault if anything, is the price of Euro 34.95 for the breakfast. Although it was delicious, it would have been nice to have a menu at the table with some extra things such as eggs benedict or an omelette available to order, to make it really worth the price.

Overall, a real luxury break in a hotel that more than lives up to its 5 star rating.
This hotel was recommended to me by several people and it certainly lived up to my expectations. Thank you!

This hotel has a very high standard. It has the grandeur of a big stylish hotel while it is a medium size hotel. The room and bathroom were top. The bar and restaurant area are really very attractive. A few minor points for improvement. The hotel doesn't have sufficient parkings for its guests. Upon arrival the doorman asks me to park the car at the nearest parking which is approx 1,5km away or a 10min walk. It was pouring water that afternoon.... Besides, we noticed a very young and unexperienced staff in the afternoon tea restaurant which resulted in a slower service. As such the young staff was very friendly and tried to deal with it. A mix with a more experienced staff supervising the younger staff would solve that issue. Other than this,I think that Hotel des Indes is the best hotel to stay in Den Haag.

Firstly, The Hague is enchanting, people are friendly and Des Indes is very sexy, indeed. This hotel is the epitome of luxury in every sense of the word. The staff here are a great asset to the hotel. Kudos to the lady at concierge with the blonde hair her directions were correct and she read us very well. I guess my faux fur gillet and berry was a give away that I liked fashion? None the less she knew where there was an exhibition on that I would like. Which I loved. Also interestingly enough, when we had suggested places we had read about she mentioned that they were not as luxurious as our choice in hotel. Nice touch lady!

Reception are very warm, check in was seamless. At this point I would like to congratulate the reception staff on their mannerisms and for example standing when a lady is present. Very suave!

We also were recommended a Vietnamese restaurant little V – (never judge a book my its cover) not impressive from the outside, but go in its a beaut. Food is superb.
One day I did decide to have breakfast, unfortunately before I had sat down with a cup of coffee I was asked to give my room number. Slightly embarrassing, i’m not a banana thief! moreover minor hiccup. She needed to know.

In the mornings we would open the curtains to a courtyard view, beautiful. Nespresso machines In the room, YES. Brilliant. Round of applause! Blah blah blah get dressed and head for another coffee and some fresh croissants in the lounge area. I shudder to taint this sterling review but could have come a little quicker. However, they were fresh and tasty.

On the Saturday I took my book downstairs and read and drank red wine. This is when I really appreciated where I was. There is a rich history to this hotel, which I would hate to tell you all now, and be wrong but should you decide to stay here. Which you must! There is an information booklet from reception with interesting facts and anecdotes.

The thing about REAL five star hotels is the devil is in the detail. Really small pool? Who cares? – there is a built in current. If my partner is having a shower I guess I can’t use the mirror right. Wrong – it only steams up the side the centre stays steam free. Internet access by the exit is complimentary. There is also a book in the room about the hotel with stories from previous managers etc. The stairs creek – which adds to the historic feel.

The team at Des Indes are professionals. If hospitality is about catering to ones every need its done well here.

Des Indes is like an affair, romantic and exciting but has to come to an end. Until next time, darling xxx

Room Tip: ask for a 4 poster bed. They have them!!

We stayed a long weekend in the Hague. The price we got through booking.com was extremely reasonable for this level of hotel. We stayed at the SPG floor where the rooms were very cosy and comfortable. The location is perfect for a city trip because it's in the middle of the historical center and everything is within reach. The service was just perfect. We will definitely go back.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your kind review! It would be our pleasure to have you back as our guest.

As you mention, Hotel Des Indes is located in the city center of The Hague and therefore it's a great location for a city trip. The Queen's working palace is very closeby, but also the government buildings and ministries. The Hague really is an upscale city, with a great history, and Hotel Des Indes is proud to be part of that.

Kind regards,

From the moment we stopped our car in front of the hotel until the moment we got into the car everything was perfect.
Very, very attentive and friendly staff. Beautiful room ( executive twin) with absolutely amazing beds. Coffee and tea making facilities in your room off course.
Bathroom with rain shower and bath and really exciting decoration.
Our windows were at the front of the hotel, with lovely view outside.
No loud noises outside but this was November so not many people about.
Finished our stay with lovely high tea in the rotunda. The atmosphere is so relaxing....
Could not find anything missing or negative.

Hotel Des Indes indeed has some Executive Twin Rooms as well. Those rooms are great in size and offer 2 big beds which is great when visiting with a friend.

As you already mention, we offer complimentary coffee and tea facilities in the room. Those enable you to enjoy a nice cup of your liking before going to bed.
