Novotel Den Haag World Forum

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Excellent hotel on many levels: - the breakfast is nice with a lot of different choices - the rooms are large and very clean - the staff is friendly, though check in for larger groups could be better The only issue I had, was the lack of restaurants in the neighbourhood as the hotel’s choices are very limited.

I stayed three nights in this hotel and everything went fine, friendly staff, large bedroom and quite clean, the two only things that could be improved are: to get on their TV channel list some English speaker country major news channel such as CNN ou BBC, and also to remember to wash the electric kettle in the bedroom. There is no use in provide complimentary coffe/tea facilities if the kettle is dirty even with mold inside. The hotel is about 40 minutes walking to the city centre, or about 15 minutes by tram . A taxi from the hotel to the Hague central train station cost me 15 euros, and from the city centre to the hotel also near 15 euros.

Spent 3 nights in The Novotel World Forum in November. Parking offsite and subcontracted (22.50 Euros per night). Pool - spa is offsite and sub contracted and also for an additional fee. Housekeeping was very erratic about cleaning the room and re-stocking toilet articles, coffee, etc. Front desk personnel were pleasant but not knowledgeable about the property. I expected a typical WOW Novotel experience but turned out to be a do it yourself low budget affair.

We stayed for the weekend at Novotel and everything was great, the service, food, room. But we liked the area the most. Recommended. The staff are very helpful and friendly, they even arranged the Taxi for us to Schiphol Airport.

The World Forum is located about half an hour walk from The Hague city center - if you book here please keep in mind that you either need to take public transport, or to walk for quite a distance through a park to get there. The hotel is excellent - great service (reception was very helpful), very comfortable room, all amenities needed, clean and large bathroom. I'd definitely recommend staying here. I didn't have any breakfast as I found it a little pricy...

This hotel is just fine- clean, neat and in the right place if you have a conference at the world forum. The public transport is great. There is a really good breakfast but no other eating facilities (though staff directed us to some lovely shopping areas for restaurants and cafes). The gym is not free- 10 euros seems a bit more than a small charge to me. However, the woods and seaside mnearby are great for running. The best bit about this hotel is the staff. They are just so nice and helpful! They helped us find opera tickets, trams and restaurants and did it so well. I have never met better hotel staff.

The Executive Room was of a good standard and very clean and quiet. Given that I was attending an event in the connected World Forum venue the location was perfect but the lobby bar was really bottlenecked in early evening. I think the modest crowd that was backed up there could have been anticipated. Maybe staff waiting tables as well as manning the bar would have helped.

I was here for a conference and since this is connected to the congress centre, was booked here as part of my group. Was surprised they didn't have dinner service despite being rated a 4-star hotel, ao we had to walk to the Marriott next door to grab a quick bite. They do have a restaurant, but it is only for breakfast and serves the exact same thing every morning. The staff were very friendly and will go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. I also liked that you can buy the tram pass right at the hotel desk. My room was OK-although the bed could probably be updated as a spring popped and made me bounce up just as I was falling asleep! I did appreciate the nice little espresso machine in my room and the complimentary chips & drinks in the mini-bar (although some of my colleagues didn't get this so I felt quite lucky). The bathroom was a nice size & the shower comfortable.

I usually book this hotel for my business trips and book the executive room. Last week, they gave me room 525 which was smaller than the usual executive room that Í had. The walls were dirty, my bathrobe did not have a belt and I just felt ripped off for the amount that I paid and for the service and comfort that I expected (which is why I was willing to pay more). I'm going back for 3 nights in October and hopefully I won't have the same issues.

Very nice hotel easy to walk to the center. Beautiful room with great staff. This was recommended by my friend and I was happy because I decided to take my family here. Everything was great. Happy to recommend this hotel to everyone
