This hotel is located right next to the Central station making access to anywhere in the Hague or The Netherlands very convenient. The rooms are nice. I had issues with the AC and the room was very hot for a few nights until they got it fixed. The restaurant and bar are nice as well.

This hotel is ideally located next to the central train station and access from a large city park. It is clean and well-maintained. The staff was very helpful: the reservations agent went out of her way to straighten out some complications before our arrival and the front desk worked overtime to provide separate documentation of all the charges to both of us. The only inconvenience, if it could be called that, is that breakfast is not included in the hotel rate. It is extra and, by U.S. standards, expensive. However, there are places in the train station that could satisfy budget appetites.

Nice lobby with very friendly personnel, so no chance not to give a smile every time you deal with. Room was clean and big enough with some furniture for spending a time not sleeping only mode. BTW, sleeping there on wide bed with very comfy pillows was something about awesome. My toom was a little bit dark, but this mostly caused by close location to the near one tall building.
Breakfast plates range is more then enough to vary and dinner hall with glass panels to the awakening city center gives you a very relaxed feeling at morning. Location of the Hotel is nearly perfect in terms of both wlaking within the city center or traveling by trams/trains around the region.

I'd book this Hotel once again definitely once I back to Den Hague.

This was one of the hotels my conference recommended, and it is worth staying at if you need to be close to Leiden University, or just the Central Station in general. Both are less than a minute away. Rates could be a bit lower, though...
The room on the top floor (9th) is large, with a good view over parts of the city. The smog is pretty dire, though, so not much to look at out the window. The bed is large and great - quite firm mattress the way I like it. Bathroom has a tub, plus shower of course. The water pressure is disappointingly low - might be a problem particular to the top floor(s)...
Service - very friendly, but a little intrusive. No need to greet me every time I cross the lobby, folks!
The only slight downside to the place so far is the rather tacky decor, featuring poor art, burgundy pillow cases and weird glowing cauldrons on the landings. Babylon revisited, I guess...

Traveling to Zoetermeer on an important business meeting, I stayed one night in Hampshire Hotel.
Got a (real) non smoking room, great king bed, marvelous set of pillows.
At arrival all was perfect, room temperature also.
Got out to business dinner and afterwards the so waited rest.
And what a great night it was!
Woke up for a shower, the shower head was not so efficacy... although it made it OK at the end.
Good generous breakfast with freshly squeezed orange juice.
On my next trip to headquarters I will definitely "demand" this hotel!
Thank you Hampshire team for a great job done here!

Room Tip: Ask for a room not facing the main avenue, it will be quieter.

the rooms are neat and clean. hotel is located near the centrum so everything is close by. the price is fair however breakfast is NOT INCLUDED! it costs about 13 or 18 euros which is tooo much. walk to the "coffee Company" nearby to have some good breakfast at a reasonable price.

First, the lobby... Oh my! How ancient it looked. It felt a little bit like we'd gotten into some shady 1980's hotel. It's dark and not welcoming.
Then the room: the room in its generality, was nice. It felt cosy and somewhat luxurious but then if you started to look around (or to the floor for that matter), you'd start noticing a few flaws. Stains on the carpet and the likes.
The bathroom was clean and modern but:
- the tap of the sink would not give us cold water. We could get some cold water out of it at some point but then it started leaking at the back and splash the mirror
- the shower hose once stayed in my hand, instead of in the wall and was a bit tricky to put back on
- the door to the bathroom was a shabby sliding door that hardly served any use (not the most comfortable when it is your first night in a hotel in a new relationship)

Now to the bed... Oh the bed!
It featured the best pillows you could ever get: thick, fluffy, comfy. It was like resting your head on a cloud. I have since then decided that I need THOSE pillows at home in place of what now feels like stone under my head.

And finally, when it comes to the location, THAT was perfect. It's so close to the station that you could almost think they're part of the same building. From there, the centre is only a few hundred meters away.

I don't think I would go back due to all the little flaws that made the stay not as comfortable as it could have been. Except maybe for the pillows...

Room Tip: Depending on your preference, I guess you should try and make sure get one type of room or the other...
