    « Nice hotel »

    It is located in a very nice area in The Hague. This area is a bit far from The Hague center station but there is a tram station, very closed to the hotel, that can take you to the center station in 15 minutes. The hotel rooms are clean. They have a very weird, so slow elevator. I found the staff not very friendly. The hotel has a good price compared to other hotels in The Hague.

    « Poor »

    The friendly reception was the best aspect of my stay. I had a tiny room at the top of the house, heavily intruded by eaves. The single bed was tiny and uncomfortably positioned. The 'lift' was a steel platform on top of a hoist - you need to hold the button down all the time and if not it stopped between floors! It didn't feel too safe. The buffet breakfast €10 was a rip off - poor quality coffee and a slice of bread and jam should cost half as much. They try hard but this place needs serious tlc and a review of its pricing policy. Not recommended, sadly.

    « Welcome at friends »

    I love this little cozy hotel very much. We stayes their for one night only. The building is amazing, a tipical dutch house. The ladies who work at this hotel are more then friendly. They tread you like friends and welcome you like you do it at home with your friends. The staff is very freindly and helpfull. The have parking tickets prepaired at the check in desk and you can even rent really good bikes with them. The hotel has a nice outside patio for a coffee or breakfast. The rooms are lovely furnished. Every room is unique and modern / comfortable equipped. By bike it took as 10 mins to go to the beach or the city center of Den Haag. Thank you very much!

    « Most enjoyable »

    This is the third time I stayed at Hotel Petit and I am most pleased with the building atmosphere, friendly staff, beautifuly surrounded by gardens and canals, comfortable rooms some of them with wonderful views, spacious showers and very good breakfast that offers the possibility to taste poffertjes one of traditional Dutch delicacies which I have not found at others hotels in Holland.

    « People make places »

    My room was small, it was at the top of 3 flights of stairs, I even arrived to a locked door. All my dealings with the staff were great. Helpful, friendly and willing to help. From breakfast to a beer, or an offer of coffee. All in all 100% from the staff. My room was fine. A single bed, a desk a bathroom, I didn't need anything else, and the view in the sunshine was amazing. A nice area, a good location and great staff, and I'm sure the updated rooms are great. A special thank you to Hannah, so nice to take 5 minutes to chat and say hello. I'm sure all the staff would be the same. A very nice little hotel with a really nice team.

    « Very Run Down with Excellent Service »

    The staff at this hotel were wonderful and the breakfast was quite good. However our room was the worst by far of anywhere we stayed in Europe. The room was dingy and stuffy. The bed was extremely uncomfortable, the bathroom old and drab. The carpets and furnishing all looked somewhat worn and dirty. I have only given it an average rating because of the staff. They were so friendly and helpful. It is a shame the hotel is in such poor condition.

    « Den Haag accomodation »

    Marvellous top class accommodation, spacious and equipped with every comfort including jacuzzi and sauna. This hotel is located in a vibrant neighbourhood - park beauty and bus at front door. This home away from home really is a brief trip to city and beach and just around the corner from the Peace Palace.Owners warm, welcoming and generous.

    « Lovely clean hotel, with extra care for details. »

    The hotel is located in a very nice and quiet area, stayed there for 3 nights, in a lovely room, very clean, with a lot of care for details. The room smelled very nice, it had a wonderful view to a small park and lake. The staff was very helpful.

    « A friendly hotel in one of the most beautiful parts of The Hague »

    Nice small hotel in the embassy area of the Hague. People of the hotel are very friendly. Room with a good shower and good bed. It's an old villa, so nice big windows to open. All in all we had a very pleasant stay!


    Stayed for 2 nights at the old building and water was dripping from the false ceiling! So naturally changed room and they put me on a ground floor room at the building next door. The room has much better decoration and even have a small patio area outside: very nice! Parking is free on the road opposite ( 50 m away )....

    « Hidden Gem »

    I booked this hotel for 1 night when everything else around the Hague was fully booked, I ended up extending my stay to 2 weeks because I liked it so much. I said in the Suite that had a spa bath, sauna, his/her sinks, king size bed, mini bar. The hotel only offers breakfast but are more than helpful in directing you to the nearest restaurants or assisting with food delivery. It is not the most modern hotel but it has a certain charm and warmth a lot of other hotels lack. The staff were very warm and welcoming as well. There is onsite parking, or you can get a windscreen parking permit from the hotel for €10 per day. There is free parking just across the road which is great if you have a car. Parking in Holland costs a kings ransom! Overall this quaint place is highly recommended for all types of travellers. It should be noted there isn't 24/7 onsite reception for those looking for last minute late night check-ins.

    « Just nice »

    This is an old place with old style charm. The staff try hard for you and are friendly. The room is good for a weekend trip but a little cramped for longer term travellers with bigger luggage bags. The bed was firm and comfortable but we didn't like the pillows ( we thought they were small and soft and, to be fair, we didn't enquire about changing them). The bathroom was very big and the shower was good. Breakfast was good with a wide range and fair priced. Restaurants and shops are close by. NO on-site parking and kerb side parking is metered. Free parking is about 400 metres away, which we used, BUT there are 3 sets of nesting ducks in the canal on the walk back to the hotel and they are a real entertainment to watch. All up - just nice

    « Comfortable hotel, nice location »

    Our room was three floors up, in the eaves of the hotel. Steep stairs not suitable for all but a lift available. The room was clean and comfortable with en suite shower room. Mini bar (which we did not want), tea and coffee making facilities though powdered milk. Comfortable bed, good desk/dressing table area. Bar area in the breakfast room, Friendly staff. Free wifi but slow. Location a nice area but a fair step into town. Asked for public transport info as bus stops outside of hotel but was told to ask for this when I wanted to get somewhere. I wanted general info to plan where I could go and how to get there.

    « Warm Home away from home »

    Hotel Petit makes its guests feel as if they have a home in Den Haag. Staying there is truly enjoyable. This was my 4th or possibly 5th stay and I would stay no where else. The location is superb and it is in a quieter area near The Peace Palace but well located for anything one would wish to do in The Hague.

    « Small but comfortable hotel »

    This is a small hotel of only a few rooms but dont let that fool you, its a very charming small hotel. their reception is very friendly and helpful, we have made a last minute and he is very helpful to see what is possible. The rooms are old but they have made sure it holds the best western standard of cleanliness, comfortable sheets and bed. Overall it was a very comfortable stay and we even extended another night.

    « Enjoyed every minute of our stay »

    Great experience overall, very recommended. Location: located very close to the Peace Palace, and walking distance to Hague central part. There is street parking right near the hotel that is free after the midnight, so we payed just a couple of euros for couple of hours till the midnight. Area is very nice full of historical buildings from Netherlands golden age occupied by embassies. There is a nice tiny park in front of the hotel. Staff is super friendly and nice. We were checking in with a small dog and they made this time really special for us giving our pet a very special and warm welcome. Elevator of the hotel is a fun and unusual experience. Our room was large and very cozy. Furniture in excellent condition, everything working properly. There is a mini bar in the room and tea/coffee making facilities. As I said in the beginning - great hotel, very recommended, super pet friendly!

    « Tiny basic hotel, nice service »

    Me and my partner stayed here for one night. The hotel is very small, and located in and old house just outside of The Hague city center. The hotel is easily reachable with public traffic. The neighborhood, is very silent and green, and is only 10 minutes away from the city center. The room was nice, had all the basics you expect from a simple hotel room and was nicely furnished. The information folder on the desk in the room was little bit outdated (some information was not updated in a while). There was a lot of information about the neighborhood and the city itself available, which was a nice addition. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They gave us a discout coupon for a local attraction we wanted to visit. Also in the morning of check out, we needed a little more time, and I called the reception to ask if it was ok to check out 30 minutes later than the check out deadline. This was no problem at all, and it was free of charge (usually a late check out will cost €20). We did not have breakfast in the hotel, as we thought that €10 per person for a simple continental breakfast was a tad overpriced, and we enjoyed our breakfast elsewhere.

    « A small but very nice hotel in e very ice neighbourhood »

    Hotel Petit is located in a very nice area in The Hague (Statenkwartier). It is not big but full of history. Though the hotel is rated as a three star hotel, the rooms have all the amenities you could wish for (coffee maker, even a small fridge). Public transport close by (tram, bus) which will bring you in 10 minutes to either the city or the train station. And in five minutes to the beach! The best shopping street of the Hague (Frederik Hendriklaan) is a five minutes walk away.

    « Fine hotel in Jugendstil neighbourhood »

    My handicapped partner and I stayed for one night at Hotel Petit in order to attend a function around the corner. The hotel dated from the Jugendstil period - not exactly a time frame that handicapped people were extensively catered for. We got room #1 at the ground floor - no stairs, except for a few steps at the entrance. Breakfast was not included, and the hotel was a bit pricy for what you got, but otherwise OK. The significant "minus" were the beds, with very soft mattresses which were a pain to get up from the next morning.

    « What a place! Excellent that exceeds all expectations! »

    I'm a habitual tripadvisor user but until now i never made the time to write a review but this place has absolutely inspired me to! Never have I stayed in a more welcoming hotel and I have traveled a ton for business/pleasure! Set in a charming, historic mansion on a picturesque pond that is close to everything you need in The Hague but still quiet would be enough of a reason to give this place high marks. The well kept, attractive, clean rooms with nice views and comfy beds/pillows would also be enough but what makes this place a five star review on top of all of this is.....the staff. They go above and beyond any expectation to make your stay not only seamless but exceptional. They are thoughtful and caring on a level that is just beyond words. Seems like a lot of superlatives, I know but Im serious! This place is an absolute gem! It also gives the feeling of an inn-boutique hotel-bed and breakfast, doesn't feel corporate at all, feels like a dedicated family-ran place and run it with great passion and dedication, they do! Highly recommended! A++++

    « Beautiful area but really small »

    2 nights in November 2015 with late arrival. Reception empty. Very dark at midnight and no good description were there room was. I needed to go out and find the room in another building. Big quite cold room at street level. Enourmous smell from towels, probably to much washing softener. High price and no comfort. Would not stay here again.

    « nice but rotten customers policy »

    It's not this hotel's policy to show concern and interest in their clients, even a returning one. I was rushed into hospital on the day of my booking, I phoned, emailed... sent a proof that I was really hospitalized, no can do, even a rescheduling of my trip didn't change anything, they simply charged the room even if I had booked through BestWestern and with a flexible rate... It may be a nice hotel as far as settings go, but it certainly has a rotten customers' policy. So if you book there make sure you have extra insurance to cover your stay.

    « Excellent stay in the city of peace and justice. »

    The staffs were friendly and very kind. They just provided us the new double bed mattress which was perfectly comfort. The location is calm, peaceful and beautiful place. Good size quiet room with tea and coffee facilities. Good location for attending the World Forum.

    « Pleasant Stay »

    Hotel is good. Free Wifi and free tea/coffee. Location is in the middle of city. Good house keeping, Bedroom is good. Spacious bathroom. Breakfast is not included in room. Overall, good hotel syitable for business and family both.

    « Pleasant stay »

    My family and i stayed here for one evening. Just a short get away. We chose the location based on a previous stay. Den Hague is a lovely town, on the waters edge, beaches with a small boardwalk, and lots of places to ride your bikes. It's only about a 30-40 minute drive up to see the famous flower gardens of the Netherlands. I had booked 2 rooms for my family of 5, upon arriving, our rooms were in 2 separate buildings, this was not going to work when you have young children. However, the staff was quite accommodating and upgraded our room so to place us side by side. She then informed me, if I had booked directly with the hotel online, or called, that we could have been placed in one family room(which I would have preferred). This is helpful to know for future visits. The rooms were clean and spacious, one with a street view, the other with a small patio. A lovely garden out front allows a spot to sit and have a cup of tea. Breakfast is served in the morning, at a fee- we opted not to have breakfast, the price wasn't fantastic(though free for children under 15) The upgraded room had wonderful amenities, even a sauna in the bathroom! Along with bath robes, dvd player with movies to choose from, and a coffee maker in the room for expressos. Parking is provided street side, they do have a VERY small parking lot on the premise for about 2 cars, so more thank likely you would opt to park on the street for about 10euro. Location is key, as mentioned, walking distance to the beach, close to the city center and several restaurants nearby. Overall a good stay, I just wished I would have known about only needing to book one room for our family, would have been quite helpful. Oh and I do believe they also have bikes you can rent- from the looks of them, they were in good shape.

    « So so hotel in The Hague »

    Good location but average/small room. Bad Internet service in the room, dim lighting, sloppy housekeeping. Towels not changed, even when left on the floor; took three days to replace lightbulb; very nice breakfast, although they charge 10 euros/day/person, which is rare in Europe. Price was good. It's rated as a 3 star hotel but .....
