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 and 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.

If you're looking for a place in the center of things in The Hague, this is a great place. WJ and his wife open up their house to you and make you feel very welcome. Walking distance to everything and close to public transportation if you want to get out of town or aren't up for walking all over.

Had a great stay here. Willem and his wife are wonderful people, and they were very welcoming. The location is great- about 10 minute walk from the central metro station and it's basically in the center of the city. Couldn't recommend more!

Willem and Carmen were the best hosts I could have had while staying at The Hague. They are a friendly and very kind couple and they were always attentive to my needs. In addition, they were very understanding and helpful when my daughter got sick. The place is accurately described, conveniently located right in the city centre, very near to the central station. I highly recommend this accommodation without doubt.

We were quite busy visiting friends and didn't manage to spend very much time in the apartment. Willem and Carmen have an absolutely beautiful home with a lovely terrace. They were also very welcoming, friendly and fun, and I would gladly stay there again. Location is absolutely incredible.

Very helpful and welcoming couple with excellent communication before and during our short stay. Everything is as described. The location is ideally central as expected. The flat is light, airy and spacious with good sized bedroom and bathroom. Everything was extremely clean. The typically Dutch stairs from street and between floors (steep, narrow, curving) perhaps wouldn't suit everyone! Highly recommended, and we would hope to stay again.

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 some of the history and explaining where to go, location of the sights, shops, what are the best restaurants etc. etc..
