I spent 199 euro per night to stay in This hotel.The room was not same as hotel website description. The room was really dirty, unbelievable dirty! They deducted few different costs from my credit card after I have checked out from the hotel few days later, I was really confused, because they didn’t told me why until I discovered it myself! What terrible!

Dear Ms. Cai, I am so sorry to read this review after all the personal contact we had after you shared your experience with us after your stay in July. We have tried to solve everything to your liking, at the moment itself and afterward. We have tried to explain everything about the different roomtypes and the fact that we have different designs. Our hotel is based in a monumental building and all rooms differ when it comes to size and design. We have used several colors in our rooms and the colors can be found on our website. We have offered to show you around our hotel and make notes for future preferences. We have acknowledged that the room wasn't properly cleaned and apologized and solved it immediately. Also the authorization charge was released by us directly after you pointed this out. Unfortunately, the bank can take some time to process this. If there is anything else I can do for you, please let me know. You have my personal contact details. Warm regards, Team Ambassador - Mireille

Charming building in a lovely part of the city. Well renovated rooms (excellent mattress). Welcoming staff. No fitness room and no arrangements with sports clubs nearby. The reason for the two stars is the poor quality of breakfast for a luxury hotel. Dutch hotels often have disappointing breakfasts, but this was particularly bad in terms of quality and variety for a hotel of this category: canned juices, industrial type of bread, no cereals, etc.

Dear topsmed, Thank you for sharing your experiences at our hotel. With feedback like yours, we are trying to improve our service where possible. We are so sorry to hear that the breakfast wasn't to your liking. We are trying our best to make it as good as possible within all Dutch Covid measures. Therefore, cereal aren't on the buffet but can be ordered from the kitchen. The bread is baked fresh in the morning so we are so sorry to hear. Hopefully, we will get a new chance from you in the future. Thank you again for your feedback. Warm regards, Team Ambassador - Mireille

We went to The Hague for the weekend. Stayed here. We were able to upgrade our room for 50 Euro, which included the mini bar! The room was excellent! Bathroom had a large tub as well as a shower. Bed was VERY comfortable! As was the pillows. Free Wifi. Room had a safe. AC in the room as well as automatic blinds to provide privacy & shade. Iron and Iron board also provided. As for the cons, the breakfast service was not very good. Seems that they were understaffed. Several times, they brought us things, but forgot other things (brought coffee, but forgot sugar/milk). Breakfast was very basic also. But that's not an issue with me. Bathroom was amazing, but the shower was very small. I hit the hot/cold knob several times, thus giving myself either a hot or cold burst of water. The shaving mirror had a VERY short extension, so it was pretty much useless also. We parked a block away near a police station. We paid a fairly low price for 3 days, so we were happy to walk the 5 min it took to get to the hotel. Front desk staff was VERY friendly & helpful. They helped us with a restaurant recommendation, and it was a home run! It is a 10 min walk to the Tweede Kamer. As well as most other placed to eat and shop. Thanks to everyone at the hotel! We really enjoyed our stay!!!

The pictures on the hotel website cannot possibly show how charming and cozy this hotel is. I was simply amazed by the atmosphere in this place. Every single detail, from the carefully chosen interior design to the thick soft carpets in the hallways, period furniture, amenities and services show how this hotel cares about its guests. We were met by the friendliest personnel, who were genuinely happy to welcome us and help us with every request we had during the stay. The clean, cozy, quiet and beautifully designed rooms are well equipped with everything you might need or want in the hotel. WIFI works good even in the video streaming mode. And the small gifts from the hotel – the true tokens of their hospitality - made the whole stay even better! I checked out from Carlton Ambassador smiling and can proudly say, that I finally found my favorite place to stay in The Hague.
