At breakfast yesterday morning, just before Guido and Irene waved us on our way back to Schiphol, Guido asked us what he could be doing to improve on his already wonderful offering. I was a bit stumped by the question because I couldn’t think of an answer. I said I would email him when I had come up with something… but right now I’m still thinking. Paul Johnson, in »A Luxury Travel Blog (UK, August 2, 2006)
It is a full five star experience in facilities and the care with which
the B &B experience is fostered... In design and style there are lessons
here, but the lessons of service have been learned and applied to create
a small scale suite hotel that stands comparison favourably with many
a more famous an establishment...

Like the service, the interior takes you back to another time...

For the VIPs out there, the place to hobnob with heads of state paying
low-key visits is the Haagsche Suites...

We could use numerous superlatives here, but you should experience Haagsche
Suites for yourself...

Romantische Hotels in the Nederlands and in Belgium (second
edition, Belgium, EPN, Lannoo, Terra, March 2003).
He compares 5 very luxurious, expensively decorated hotels that offer
a lot of privacy and personal attention: "Although they are expensive,
they are almost always cheaper than similar accomodation in traditional
big hotels. Take for instance Haagsche Suites: €425,- per suite per
night (all inclusivel)...In order to get something similar in size in
Hotel des Indes, one has to take two small adjacent suites at a cost of
€700,- exclusive of breakfast and drinks..."

Rooms with King size beds and matrasses that invoke a sense of homesickness
when one has left the premises... Breakfast served in Haagsche Suites

(The Netherlands, January 31, 2003).
On the third floor one finds a symmetrically decorated wall with portraits
of nineteenth century university professors and a living room with a 'chaise
bateau'. The bed is darkbrown with linen from 'Strelli'... But I liked
Suite 1 most with the blossoming Japanese cherry painted by Walther van
Ekkendonk, who so brought spring inside...

Thou Shalt Enjoy Thyself!
A filmset? No, just staying in a unique hotel in The Hague: King size
bed, lying sky high, king size cushions, soft blankets, warm duvets. I
do enjoy myself. Beautiful covers, draped over the painted old wooden
floor, a softly cushioned headboard. A bed to live in....Mad-de-ning!...
Maarten Noppen in Algemeen
Dagblad (The Netherlands, January 4, 2003).
My Suite is my Castle.
Thou Shalt Enjoy Thyself! is written near the entrance. We rather would
like to experience this ourselves than being so commanded...We feel like
we have entered 'The World of Interiors'. We hardly dare to take our seats
in the lounge...but the warm welcome of host and hostess makes us feel
at home quickly.... When we left we had to admit that the commandment
is very true to the experience...
Petra Vethman in Elegance Stays in Hotels, Elegance
(The Netherlands, January 2003).
Baroque meets High Tech.
Very modern techniques are hidden behind the warm and comfortably decorated
interior. Hot water comes from sun collectors, heath from a central heating
system behind adobe walls....What is more fun than taking a bath with
a glass of champagne? Decadent? No, very enjoyable!...
Bert van Elsacker in Design Hotels,
Feeling nr 12 (Belgium, December 2002).
What is it? A Hotel? No, too small. A formal accommodation? Maybe, but
breakfast is served on the huge private dinner table of host and hostess.
The answer is: This top level guesthouse is something between a luxurious
private studio you'll love to occupy immediately and a unique Bed and
Breakfast. Thus honouring it's original name Haagsche Suites (i.e. Suites
of The Hague)...
