“Nice central location for exploring the beach, City Centre, Delft, Leiden”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

June 15-20, 2013 99Euro per night, plus city occupancy tax Visa or Cash

Lovely historically designated Catholic complex, now converted to B&B and apartments.

Room 3A, located in separate building to the right of the main building #9. Room consists of double bed, private bath with shower/sink/toilet, shower gel provided. Kitchenette with 2 burner cooktop, microwave, kettle, dishes, cutlery and glassware for 2 people. Instant coffe/sugar/creamer and tea can be found in the main entrance on the bookcase, as well as area travel guide. Mini fridge. Table with 2 chairs, TV (satellite). Couch that folds down for extra bed. We were on main level, street front so feels like a little studio apartment. 2 Windows open slightly. Room gets very bright in the morning, early before 5am. Clean, comfortable and allows us to cook our own meals. Albert Heijn grocery store within 500m and also supermarket on beach strand next to Kurhaus. Albert Heijn also carries beer/wine. Free Wifi, good connection speed.

Very convenient for transportation to and from Den Hague Central Station. Tram 9 or Tram 1. Also good location as center point for transportation around the area. Tram 1 goes directly to Delft and is included in the one day inclusive transportation ticket for 7.70Euros per person. Tram 1 takes a different route to the city centre, so you see other attractions such as the Peace Palace. Trip to city centre is about 15 min. Also convenient for connections to Schiphol airport.

Breakfast is in the breakfast room located in building 9. Consists of coffee/tea/hot chocolate, assortment of cereals, breads and pastries. Fruit, yogurt, cold meats, cheese, salad, hard boiled eggs. Omelets made to order with cheese/ham. Toasted bread with assorted jams, peanut butter, honey and chocolate spreads. Very good and filling. Kate is originally from the US, moved to Holland 20 years ago, so very easy to get local information. Would recommend, especially for a long stay.
Hosts: Jan Willem & Catherine (Kate) van der Loos

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

We decided to book a room for New Year's Eve in Scheveningen and thanks to Tripadvisor, we landed a gem!
We got a room - the Tuinkamer, or 'Garden Room' - that would have been considered a nice sized studio apartment in any metropolis like Paris, New York, or Hongkong. And it's decor was just as if you were in someone's home.
The bed was very, very comfortable and roomy enough for the two of us. There are lots of drawers, cupboards, and closet space to tuck things away, because they actually rent the rooms for short and long term.
In the kitchen, you'll find a mini-fridge, a water cooker, a small cooker (for meals) , and even a rice cooker! (Very cosmopolitan!)
I loved the breakfast and lounge room downstairs. It was comfortable, tasteful,with a great atmosphere. If weather is permitting, you can make use of a wonderful terrace and garden for your meals.
The owners, Kate and Jan, are very knowledgable and well-travelled, so if you get a chance to stop and chat with them be prepared for some great conversation! :)
Another plus: it's literally 1 minute from the tram or bus stops which can take you into Den Haag - 20 minutes away - in the case that you get tired of sun and sea.

Room Tip: Our room, the Tuinkamer, was on the 1st floor - with stairs only. It's a good choice.

I stayed at the AAA for over a month and had a great experience. The location is excellent and the owner/operators are very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a place to stay in Den Haag.

Room Tip: If you aren't happy with your room, don't be afraid to talk with Kate or Jan- they are very...

I spent 3 months during the summer for business. The staff was very accommodating and friendly (I worked nights), and very willing to exceed my expectations. I stayed at the very top floor and despite the stairs, the rooms were comfortable and pleasing.

The location of hotel is perfect as well. Minutes away from the beach, minutes away from the nearest store, restaurants and entertainment, and minutes away from the Tram station. It was very convenient. You get more than what you pay for, for the price you pay.

I truly enjoyed my stay and honestly say I recommend it to all.

I was working in Den Haag for a few days and was looking for somewhere a bit more welcoming and relaxing than the usual international hotel clones. This was a perfect find. Lovingly refurbished in a 1930's style, with pictures and ornaments to match, the hotel exudes a warm comfort. The owner was attentive, charming, and very welcoming, making me feel at home from the moment I arrived late in the evening.

My room was on the top floor, up some steep narrow stairs, and I had a huge bed and a big desk where I could work. Everything was clean and working perfectly. Free wifi and internet cable connection.

Breakfast was fine, though perhaps not as extensive as some of the larger hotels in Scheveningen.

All in all, an excellent little hotel. I shall stay there again next time I have to go to Den Haag.

A very lovely hotel. We were met by Jan the owner who is a very charming man. The photos of the hotel don't do justice the the old world charm. Our room had kitchen and bathroom. The sitting room had 2 couches one could be made into bed. The breakfast was very good and plenty of choice. Would book again the next time in Holland.
