“not bad at all!”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

Perfect location to explore the city... next to the train station and trams, five minute walk from the city center, and across the Haagse bos (big park). Nice room, comfortable bed, plus a clean and nice bathroom! Wireless internet connection ONLY available in the lobby. It was not bad at all, but definitely not a 4 stars hotel!

Room Tip: view to the Haagse bos (big park)

We stayed here last week and paid a bit extra for an upgrade, would not like to see a standard room if this was a surperior one. Room was very dusty, airconditioning vent was full of dust, standing lamp cover was broken and hung to one side, carpet was full of dirty marks, tap on wash basin leaked, and it goes on. I have complained to hotel and company we booked with but still waiting for an answer, would definately not recommend this hotel even though it is in a centraal position for trains, trams and centre of The Hague.

Stayed here for 2 nights and choose this hotel for several reasons. The location: it is next to train station Den Haag Centraal and next to the city center (150 meter walking and you start walking into the city center with shop and restaurants). The price: at the time of booking other 4 stars hotels were more expensive or less convenient located. We used the trainstation of Zoetermeer to park the car (a big free parking area there) and then trained to Den Haag Centraal Station. A single train ticket for less than 3 euro, compared to over 20 euro per day for parking.

The hotel has a basic lobby with check in facility. The procedure goes quick and professional, the same with the check out It seems to be not a massively big hotel, so that helps. The elevator and hallways look with atmosphere. There are not too many amenities (no pool, but an icemachine and machine for shoe polishing). The room is big, the bathroom looks nice and is clean. The room had a big bed and some couches. The bed was too hard though. The couches were the least attractive point: it seems it was not cleaned after somebody sat there with no trousers on (brown stain).

We did not try the breakfast, we found it overpriced. And the people who clean the room will not clean your room if you wake up a bit later with the 'do not disturb'-sign, they will put a bag of clean towels in front of your door. When you leave the room and see they are busy cleaning another room on the same floor, you'd expect that your room will be cleaned: but no. If you have the towelbag, your room will not be cleaned. I was surprised by that service from a 4 stars hotel, never had that before. (Not a positive surprise by the way).

So the improvement here is the team that cleans the rooms. For the rest this is a good hotel at a smart location for exploring The Hague.

The rooms are lovely and if your room is situated to the front of the hotel then you get a lovely view of the Haagsche bos.
Breakfast is quite expensive - c. 20 euros per person, but fairly tasty.
Excellent location, very handy for the centrum in the Hague and for the train station.

Room Tip: Get one at the front of the hotel

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. The room was more on the small side. The floor was really dirty with brown spots all over the carpets which didn’t really give a good feeling!

The surprise was when we opened the minibar which was totally empty and SO dirty !!! I am sure it has not been cleaned in ages. We called the staff and the actually were fast in responding so they cleaned it. we had 2 heavy bags but off course no one helped us from the hotel to take them to the room or bring them back to the car.

The lobby looked really poor and outdated. The positive things were that the staff were friendly and the bathroom was modern and spacious.

Babylon is more of 2 stars hotel.

I stayed there on a business trip to The Hague for three nights. The location is convenient, right next to Central Station. My room was ok, clean, maybe a bit small. Staff at reception and in the bar were friendly. Very modern, interesting decorations.
Disappointing that there is no Wifi in the room, only internet per cable and even that did not work on the second day.

Very good hotel, room size more than adequate. Excellent breakfast - combination of European and American items (bacon & eggs). Mostly business people during the week; on the weekend tourists. Biggest plus is central location next to train station, trams and a few blocks from the city center. I would stay there again.

Room Tip: Very quiet on the back side.
