Nice hotel very close to the beach. Peaceful.
Posted Sep 10, 2014
The hotel is in a good location a few minutes' walk from the beach. It is located in the sand dunes of Kijkduin. This is a peaceful location, a far cry from the busy city centres in Holland. Suits families with children, the elderley, or anyone just wanting a quiet, refined away-from-it-all break.
The promenade plays host to several bars / restaurants, but we found that these close early, around 10.00pm, depending on how many customers they have. There is a fish and chip shop open in the afternoon.
There is a small shopping mall with one or two boutiques, a butcher's shop, a delicatessen, a bread shop, souvenir shops, a paper shop / tobacconist, and cafes / ice-cream parlours. Nothing wild, but nice enough for a peaceful break.
There is an excellent bus service across the road from the hotel, where you can get into The Hague city centre in 25 minutes. Buses are approx. every 10 minutes, and are much cheaper than taking a taxi. The number 24 and 26 buses go into the city centre, which is a great place to explore, and of historical interest. A great shopping centre, including China Town. A sharp contrast from the tranquil coast at Kijkduin.
