If you are just staying for a short time and you are traveling by train, this is the place for you!
The Babylon is a nice hotel. I was in Den Haag for business, so my priorities were location, cost, cleanliness, internet access, and a good breakfast. The hotel is centrally located next door to the Den Haag Central Station, so travel by train was easy. An 8 euro ticket to get from Schiphol Airport to Den Haag Central. I was able to get a good price through Orbitz for my five night stay, but Orbitz dropped the ball (more later). My room was very comfortable with all the ammenities that you would expect from a Double Tree class hotel including free internet access from my room, and a GREAT buffet breakfast. The Babylon Business Complex (which includes the hotel) is currently under construction, so there is daytime noise (seamingly 7am-4pm) in certain areas of the hotel; and the hotel entrance is not attractive. But since I was away from the hotel during the day, there was little impact on me. I would definitely stay at the hotel again eventhough I was disappointed that I had no reservation when I arrived. Apparently, Orbitz failed to send them the prepaid arrangements, so I had to use my credit card to check-in, and then I had to contact Orbitz to get them to send the hotel the information. This failure also lead to complications when I checked out of the hotel. This should not have happened.
