Felt like Royalty

Tripadvisor review from a guest from Montreal, Canada, dated September 30, 2010:

This is a small hotel. Just 3 suites( 1 per floor ). As you enter your suite you feel like you have stepped into another world. Beautiful with a mix of old and new. Modern upgraded bathrooms and kitchen combined with antiques and ornate furniture and fixtures. This place was fabulous,comfortable and indulgent.. Our host Guido was fabulous…

Sunset Dinner in Scheveningen

Today I had dinner with Nomadic Matt (@nomadicmatt), a perpetual traveler and celebrity blogger who visited Haagsche Suites last year already.

We had dinner at Beach club “Doen”. Doen = Dutch for Do!

Good food and good service by a friendly and professional crew. Good to see Matt back, albeit too short. As a dessert a nice and crisp true Scheveningen Sunset.

Scheveningen is the beach resort of The Hague. In summer the beach club is an excellent location for many a wedding celebration and in many occasions the newly wed couples celebrate their first honeymoon night in Haagsche Suites. I should go there more often.

The Peace Palace in The Hague

Almost a year ago I took this photo of the Peace Palace, which is around the corner from Haagsche Suites and attracts buses full of tourists all day every day. Looking at it again, I see it is a bit unsharpened, unfortunately. I’ll look for another one which I took the later with my then new camera of which the card wasn’t functioning properly…but somewhere I must have that other photo.
The peace palace is not only a significant building in The Hague, but also something to visit, albeit by it standing there as a monument of trying to achieve peace though international justice. It is the home of the International Court of Justice, that decides on conflicts between countries.
