The hotel was clean and the staff were very helpful and friendly. I was disappointed that there was no exercise facility however. Also, it would have been nice to have coffee available. There are smalll packets of instant coffee in the room but otherwise, one has to buy a cup from the restaurant. The bathroom was clean but the light...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your response concerning your recent stay. I am very sorry to hear we’ve missed a few marks. We offer great (on the go) coffee in our lobby, bar and restaurant. Did you ask one of our guest relation officers at the front desk or restaurant employees for assistance? We are aware of the limited space...

This is the second time I have stayed in the Carlton Ambassador in 5 months for a business trip. Once again I found this a very pleasant and satisfactory stay. This is one of those hotels that leave a very comfortable feeling. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are quiet for starters, but more than anything it is the...

I stayed for 1 night during a business trip. The hotel is within a lovely area, along a treelined road, populated by stately homes and embassies. I found it an easy walk to the railway station, about 20 min. The reception was clean, comfortable and with pleasant decor. Reception staff were friendly and professional. They also made an effort to...

We stayed here for 3 nights to visit both Den Haag & Scheveningen. The hotel is within walking distance from The Hague city center, located in a beautiful area full of stately homes and embassies, in a treelined lane. Although not exactly our taste (we prefer a more modern hotel) the interior decoration is with done with sense of detail....

Dear guest, Sounds like you made the most of your mini-holiday here with us. I hope you were able to see everything you wanted to see and enjoyed every minute of it!

I stayed here for 1 night last month during a work conference. The hotel is very well situated. The reception is lovely and very clean and comfortable, with fresh flowers and lovely decor. The staff are fantastic, very professional and caring: they made an effort to give each of us a map and to annotate it for us, to ask...

Dear guest, Thank you for your lovely and extensive review! Indeed the Rubens bar is one of our hidden gems, with a tasty collection of good whiskeys and custom-made cocktails. If you happen to return to The Hague, on either a business or holiday trip, we’d love to make sure you have a proper view, so we can take your...

The Carlton Ambassador might be a thirty minute walk or so from the train station, but it's worth going that little further for the comfort and welcome you receive. In truth the hotel looks a little dated, with its orangey yellow window shades, the building sat out in slight isolated splendour. Inside the reception is very friendly, and incredibly efficient...

Dear guest, Props go out to our partner-in-crime, matrass-experts Topperbox for the comfort of your nights. It might almost be a slight letdown that they don’t fit into your luggage! The coffee machine in the breakfast room we have added just a couple of months ago, so I’m glad to hear that you liked the coffee! Of course it doesn’t...

The hotel is very well located and has a nice atmosphere, nicely decorated and a great breakfast. Staff is nice and helpful. We could park the car on the street, right across te hotel. The room was a bit noisy, though. The town has beautiful places to visit.

Dear Alfons, Many thanks for your kind words! I’m sure your stay left enough inspiration to revisit the city, and (wishful thinking) also our hotel! Combine your summertrip with a biking day through the coastal dunes, or check out the Japanese Garden in the Autumn and be awed by the amazing colours of the trees! A little bit of Indian...

This was again a great stay at the Carlton! Staff is friendly, rooms are comfortable and nicely decorated. The breakfast is also good and the buffet for lunch is varied. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Dear Ema, Thank you thank you thank you! We’re happy to know you are still one of our biggest “fans” :-). I’m curious to hear what you think of our newly refurbished rooms on the 4th floor. Perhaps a nice option for your next visit to The Hague? All the best! Kind regards, Esther Boers

I've been here before, a year ago, and it is amazing how consistently good the Carlton is. The staff could not be more helpful in every way. The restaurant food is exemplary, and the breakfast will really get you set for the day. Being an older hotel with many non-intuitive corridors, it can be difficult to find your room.

Dear guest, I’m very glad to hear that we have made such an impression on you!

staff all welcoming and very friendly. Amazingly comfortable bed, and refurbished traditional style bathroom. Rooms quite small - as many are in Dutch cities, but perfectly fine for a few days. Location is wonderful and convenient for shopping, museums and restaurants without having to take any additional transport.
