The space

Two large bedrooms (one for max. 2 persons, one for max. 3 or 4 persons) and my office where 1 person can sleep. We can accommodate maximum 6 persons (two persons on two individual sleeping bed-sofas).

If you want to rent the apartment for longer than 1 month (sometimes this is possible if we are abroad for work) I will offer you an additional discount.

Besides renting the whole apartment it is also possible to rent one room (for maximum 3 persons while a 4th person can sleep in my office). Contact owner or look for other add owner.

Interaction with guests

If I am in the country I will receive you myself (otherwise someone else will do so). If you want I will show you around The Hague telling something about The Hague's history and explaining where to go, location of the sights, shops, what are the best restaurants etc. etc..

Other things to note

The apartment is located on the first and second floor above the Kruitvat. We don't have an elevator to go up. Stairs are typical Dutch and foreigners might think the stairs are steep (by the way, this is not unique for our apartment but will be the case for most apartments in the city center).

The apartment is located in the city center of The Hague. Therefore if you are looking for a very quite place to stay in The Hague it's probably best to look in another area of the city because in the center we cannot prevent typical city noise.

Our stay here was excellent. The place is very central and it made it really easy to move around the sites that we wanted to inside of The Hague. The internet (Wifi) is really fast which was amazing. We were always shown around the house by our host. We had an excellent time and I highly recommend this place to anyone coming to the Hague :)

the apartment is a very Dutch apartment in the best location possible for anyone visiting Den Haag as a tourist. the apartment is clean, the beds are comfortable, and the balcony is amazing. The location is a bit noisy in the night and I didn't sleep much (especially in the weekend) since it's right at one of the city hot spots (the Plein) with all the bars and restaurants. Willem and his wife were really nice, and I really liked the way they decorated their apartment. they were extremely helpful to us, even when we had some complicated check-in circumstances. communication was perfect with Willem.

After a last minute cancellation we had to find a new place to stay only two days before our weekend in Den Haag. Willem was brilliant, responded very quickly and completely saved our trip. I don't think we could have ended up in a better place as the apartment is beautiful, big, and in the most perfect location to explore the city. The beds were very comfortable and the nice weather meant that we also got to enjoy the lovely roof terrace with lots of (fruit) trees and plants. Willem and Carmen were wonderful, they made us feel very welcome and gave us lots of tips and information about the area. Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home with us!

Dear Susan, Thank you for your wonderful reference. En de naam van je vriendin doet mij ook een belletje rinkelen. En de connectie zou de studie Scheikunde kunnen zijn. Vertel haar maar dat ik binnenkort een afspraak heb met Eric Goossen en andere studiegenoot. Gr. Willem

Hi Annemarie, thanks for your nice reference. And good to see your eye for detail. You are the first guest which recognises that part of the present parliamentary building in the past used to be the former Ministry of Justice and Colonies.

We stayed in Willem's beautiful apartment over Easter with our two young children (4 and 6) and had a great time visiting old places (we previously lived in The Hague in the past). The apartment is very central; it does not get more central than this! You can easily reach the beach using the tram that stops a few hundred meters from the apartment. The Hague central station is a 5 minute walk from which you can reach Schiphol airport in around 30 minutes. The apartment is nicely decorated and has everything you need. Though the back room is nice and quiet the front room can be a little noisy especially on Thursdays and Saturdays. This however did not bother us (or our children). As the weather was not perfect we did not get to use the beautiful big roof terrace but it would be a great place to grill and hang out on a nice summer day. We had a great time here and would definitely come back!
