Hotel Review: Hilton The Hague

Hilton The Hague Executive Room

Hilton The Hague is one of a few luxury hotels in The Hague. The location of the five star hotel is somewhat interesting. It’s neither located in the business area nor in the city center, but yet close to everything important including the Peace Palace which is just a stone throw away. Yet, not only the location, but also several other things about Hilton The Hague are worth a positive mention.

Staying at Hilton The Hague was an obvious choice for us when visiting The Hague.

  • Classification: Five Stars
  • Room Category: Executive Room
  • Month of Stay: September

We got a good price and had the pleasure to benefit from our Hilton Honors Gold membership.

That said, we arrived at the hotel at noon and instantly got a room which was a nice touch.

Friendly and helpful service combined with an upgrade to an Executive Room could have hardly been a better start.

While not being overly spacious, the Executive Rooms at Hilton The Hague are actually very nice.

The layout is different from all rooms we had at Hilton properties so far. There’s a small entrance area with the bathroom next to it, followed by a dressing area with the working desk and the coffee and tea making facilities.

The biggest part of the Executive Room at Hilton The Hague is reserved for the King Bed, two bedside tables, two armchairs and a little desk with some magazines on it. There’s also a movable flat-screen television on the wall.

The only thing we didn’t really like about the room was that it was rather dark due to the view of the inner courtyard.

The view of the inner courtyard is rather boring

Besides, the layout with the open wall between the working/dressing and sleeping area was very much to our liking.

Bathroom of the Executive Room

While we liked the bedroom of the Executive Room at Hilton The Hague, we instantly fell in love with the bathroom.

The very tasteful bathroom at Hilton The Hague

Even though we’ve been to many Hilton properties, there are only a few which had comparably spacious and comfortable bathrooms.

The usual Hilton toiletries

At Hilton The Hague, the bathroom comes with a detached rain shower, a large sink, a toilet and a spacious deep-soaking tub.

However, the real highlight is the design of the bathroom which looks really luxurious. Something we don’t really expect in Hilton hotels as the bathrooms are usually sub-par.

Executive Lounge at Hilton The Hague

As we had the pleasure to get a room on the Executive Floor, we were invited to use the Executive Lounge. This one is nice looking and well designed.

The Executive Lounge of Hilton The Hague is a nice spot to spend some time

It perfectly fits the overall design at Hilton The Hague. Something we adored was the large terrace. Even though it was too cold to use it, I’m sure it’s a real pleasure on a warm and sunny day. The offerings in the lounge were rather average at the same time.

While there was a lot of entertainment (newspapers, magazines, books, television, computer, Wi-Fi), the food displayed is rather sparse.

During the day, there were only some snacks including nuts and chips. In the evening, there is a selection of cheeses, vegetable sticks, canapes and one hot snack.

While the quality was quite good, the choice definitely was nothing to write home about.

Breakfast at Hilton The Hague

As Hilton Gold members, we had the pleasure to either enjoy breakfast in the Executive Lounge or in the restaurant.

After jogging I had a quick look on the offerings at the Executive Lounge which didn’t look bad at all. Juices, cut fruits, yoghurts, mueslis, cold cuts, cheeses, rolls, pastries and much more were available.

The choice in the restaurant is slightly better for breakfast

There’s also a hot choice of a few items. Nevertheless, we decided to give the breakfast in the restaurant a try. This one was rather uncomfortable as the restaurant was crowded on this Saturday morning. The offerings were pretty much the same, but the choice was a little better with some additional items.

Service was a little lackluster as ordering took too long for my taste, but breakfast in the restaurant of Hilton The Hague is not bad anyway. Yet, I’d prefer to enjoy the breakfast in the privacy of the lounge in the future.

Gym at Hilton The Hague

Hilton the Hague does neither offer a pool nor a relaxation area with a sauna or a steam bath for example. However, there’s a rather spacious gym which is well equipped.

There are several cardio machines as well as two strength machines. Moreover, there are enough free weights for all kinds of strength training. Complimentary towels and water are also available.

Bottom line Hilton The Hague

If you get a good price, Hilton The Hague is definitely worth a recommendation. The luxury hotel has a good location for pretty much everything in the city, the rooms are nicely appointed and got a decent size and even the bathroom is great.

The Executive Lounge is one of the positive aspects at Hilton The Hague

It’s a little sad that there’s no relaxation area and the snack offerings in the Executive Lounge are lackluster, but as there is nothing else to criticize, staying at Hilton The Hague is without any doubt worth a recommendation.
