In the middle of bustling The Hague

The city centre is within walking distance of Hampshire Hotel – Babylon Den Haag. Here you can walk along historic buildings such as Paleis Noordeinde, Koninklijke Schouwburg and the Binnenhof. The Binnenhof visitor centre organises tours of the Ridderzaal, Eerste Kamer and Tweede Kamer (Dutch senate and parliament buildings). Highly-recommended, even for those with only a mild interest in politics! Mauritshuis is close to the Binnenhof. This museum has a fantastic collection of Old Masters, including Johannes Vermeer’s The girl with the pearl earring. Mauritshuis is being renovated until 2014. That’s why part of the collection has relocated temporarily to Gemeentemuseum Den Haag.

Art and Culture
The world-renowned Gemeentemuseum Den Haag, with the largest Mondriaan collection in the world, is certainly worth a visit. View the largest painting in the Netherlands at Panorama Mesdag. On the beautiful Lange Voorhout, you can find the Escher Museum in Het Paleis. You can view almost all works by the famous graphic artist M.C. Escher in Queen Emma’s former residence. Prefer some modern technology to art? Then look, listen and experiment away at Museon science museum. Or visit Omniversum for films about man, nature and science on a huge IMAX screen.

Beach 
Het Kurhaus and the pier are the most discernible landmarks by which you can recognise ever-entertaining Scheveningen. For beaches and dunes you can also visit Kijkduin. This family seaside resort has outstretched beaches and a lively boulevard.

Events
Particularly in June, The Hague city centre is bustling with music and other events. Well-known festivals include Festival Classique, Vlaggetjesdag, Parkpop, Veteranendag and Summer Spirit Festival.

Children
The exciting underwater world of Sea Life Scheveningen with more than 45 aquariums is close to Kurhaus. An absolute must is of course Madurodam, the miniature version of the Dutch landscape, Dutch cities and Dutch life. A great extra at Madurodam is “Waddenzee” playground.

“Average hotel, but restaurant overtaken by a party”

Hotel has the standard facilities, though the tap in my room leaked and was difficult to control. Arriving at 9pm, I went to the restaurant to eat, but found it full of a large party drinking, and it was very noisy. Despite walking around it, I found no staff, so went out to eat. Air conditioning difficult to control. So slept with the balcony door open.

“Tiny Rooms, Uncontrollable A/C”

The hotel is well located next to the central station but this turned out to be a bad thing for me. The heating in the room was on all the time, despite me turning the in-room thermostat down to 16.5 degrees which meant that I had to sleep with my window open all night. This of course allowed all the noise in the room and my night was spent opening and closing the window to try and regulate the room temperature - less than ideal! I called front office and they quickly got someone to the room, but they were clueless as to what to doto turn the heating off. The rooms are tiny. The double bed only just fit into the room. No mini-bar and a very basic bathroom with wall mounted soap (shower gel/shampoo all-in-one kind of job). Water pressure in the morning was pretty weak. They claim to be 4 stars ... there are better 4 stars in The Hague to spend a night. Breakfast was basic - for almost €20 you are better off going out for something to eat. Breakfast the

“Good hotel”

Very nice hotel and room, excellent location, very friendly staff. Located next to the Central Station and to a shopping centre, walking distance to the city centre. Room was not noisy at all. Only negative aspect: the room is quite dark, there is not much light.

“Superb location”

This hotel is new, modern, and well maintained. A great location right next to the central station, so if you plan on lots of train or tram travel, it doesn't get much better than this. Very nice staff, attentive and professional. An excellent hotel. Pro tip - ask for a room with either a park view or a balcony. They have a few rooms that have both!

“So so...next to main station”

The Hampshire Babylon is located adjacent to The Hague Central Station (Den Haag Centraal) and attached to a small shopping mall. You are a short (5min) walking distance to the older part of town. It is one of the newest hotels in The Hague. Location is therefore very good. Architecturally the hotel makes a very good impression - inside and outside! The hotel is quite pricey compared to other deals in the area. It is a large hotel and you might get more personal service in smaller boutique hotels. The reception at the hotel was below expectations. It was slow. Guests who should have been referred to the concierge was helped at the check in desk, creating a line up of other guests waiting to be checked in when the concierge was completely available. The staff is quite young and knowledge lack in many instances. Guests are looked at strangely and I even saw guests asked what they were looking for at the hotel when they walked to the elevator. At that point they were asked to show their room keys - very awkward. It makes for an awkward feel to the place. The room was VERY nice and the bathroom even nicer. As a business traveller I would however prefer to have my own iron and iron board in the room. Wifi worked well. It was clean overall. Breakfast was delicious and service efficient.
