Every year in early March my wife and I escape from the chaos of Limburg Carnaval hoping to find some peace, quiet, great art and memorable meals. After a couple of beach walking days in Scheveningen we drove a short distance to The Hague. Turning onto the Sophialaan with its flower-trimmed lawns and elegant embassy buildings was the Carlton Ambassador Hotel, attractive without pretensions.
Upon entering the hotel we were pleased to hear from Sandra we had been upgraded to a signature room. When we first entered the room we immediately wanted to stay another night. It felt as if we had entered a tranquil Vermeer painting. As an artist I appreciated the attention to detail, especially the bathroom with its Delft tiles and old style fixtures.
That night we dined in the hotel restaurant and were happy to discover the same level of attention placed on the meal. The staff were very friendly and professional, especially Sandra who showed us a pleasant way to walk to the city museum.
In short, we found what we were looking for and will certainly return next year.More
