I have experienced quite a few Mövenpick Hotels around the globe, and I have always been a fan of the interior design, food and drinks these hotels have on offer. This time I am staying at the brand new Mövenpick Hotel The Hague, right in the government capital of the Netherlands. This hotel is situated in the heart of The Hague.
To find where it is I noticed this wonderful landmark which is a stunning building and the hotel is just on the right on a leafy side street from this building and the Dutch Royal Palace.
The hotel is located a stone’s throw away from the shopping street Nooreinde, so I could shop return to the hotel and shop again.
The brand new Mövenpick Hotel The Hague is a flagship hotel for Europe for this brand. Whatever goes on in this hotel, does not happen anywhere else in other Mövenpick hotels. This made my stay was a special Mövenpick stay. The interior design was commissioned by Wilson Associates a renowned New York design firm. The interior design has some warehouse elements combined with playful furniture creating defined spaces. In the suites, some ceilings are black which is very different.
This is the dining area of the hotel.
A very unique reception awaited me, the freestanding desk is a nice way to meet and greet guests. The endless amounts of different seating areas throughout the hotel is wonderful and very colourful. The by Noa Coffee & Wine lounge coffee bar and outdoor seating are lovely to have so central in The Hague. It is a quiet leafy street. Make sure you ask to test some of the coffee’s they have on offer. Very exclusive to the hotel and a wonderful experience.
I liked the tiles in the reception inspired by the famous Delftware.
The stylish 72-room boutique hotel with wooden interior staircases is an excellent example of contemporary style.
This floating staircase is lovely to walk up and down and take in this interior design. Holland loves its oak and natural wood furniture. Make sure you take the stairs to your room when you can.
Executive King Sleep
If sleep is what you are seeking then this is your room. This room is pretty soundproof and features blackout curtains. That is why I slept so very well and could do lots of work. When I woke up and opened the windows I loved hearing the seagulls and church bells. The Executive King SLEEP is 35 to 39 sqm in size with plenty of natural lighting. It is very unusual to have so many windows and natural light, I loved this room for that. The interior design and colours are so relaxing. I liked the dedicated working station and the super stylish and comfortable lounge. The coffee machine and tea available was of a very high standard. The design and practicality of this area were nice to experience. I love my coffee, The EXTRA+ Free Mövenpick coffee capsules were a welcome treat. They taste really nice.
Sleep Individually Different
This was a very stylish bed head with all the lights in the right place to make the room very cosey at night. The Sleep Individually Different, allowed me to adjust the comfort of the mattress called a YouBed. Every Mövenpick around the globe has this technology, which allowed me to adjust the firmness of the mattress. Throughout my stay, I played with this a lot. The fluffy pillows and high-quality pillows, with duvets absorbing and releasing humidity, allowed my body to breathe actively throughout the night. I don’t watch TV that much but because it was large and could be swang to watch in any part of the room. I turned it on and enjoyed some TV.
I am all about large windows that allow natural light. This room ticked all those boxes. Ask for room 219, you won’t be disappointed.
The choice of colours within this room meant my mind was always focused on relaxing and unwinding which is very important for travellers at the moment.
I adored the decor in this bathroom. For me, the Christian Dior inspired wall art with a mix of white and eclectic floor tiling really left me feeling relaxed and happy at the same time. Colour clashing is a popular interior design for hotels this season. The two mirrors were great to see how my outfits looked. The separate rain shower was wonderful. The oversize bath is very rare these days when staying in city hotels. The pillow in the bath is also not common in hotels, this was a nice touch. I like eco-friendly hotels that have large bottles of conditioner, shampoo and body wash, it means fewer plastic bottles to throw out. I did many Youtube videos in this bathroom as I loved it so much.
Wellness treats right within my room whenever I wanted.
Food and beverages are the core DNA of staying at any Mövenpick. When it came to breakfast this was unique.
The breakfast decor is all about feeling like I was in my own home kitchen. To be able to access the fridge for food, lift up a pot or access food on a bench was a very different experience. The Hague has many long term guests so this makes perfect sense to create a home kitchen breakfast idea.
To have as much coffee and tea was like me staying at home. The tea is an excellent brand called Legends finest Tea, which has a nice quirky way of opening a teabag. Breakfast had many healthy options that I normally don’t have at home. Healthy shots at the Mövenpick were excellent. These energy shots are blended with juice or yoghurt, fresh fruit and vegetables for a nice start to my day.
I thought having fresh hummus with grilled vegetables was different and not on offer at other hotels. The variety of nuts too and how it was presented meant the standard of breakfast was very high. Freshly squeezed orange juice is always a winner for me, there was plenty of that to drink.
As I would expect, the serving plates were lovely, it reminded me of Delftware.
Ride And Wine
When in the Hague make sure you rent a bike at the hotel for 16 euros per day and ride with some dedicated Mövenpick wine. Scheveningen Beach is only 20 minutes by bike and the scenery is excellent on the way. The bikes are new so very comfortable to cycle.
The hotel offers a picnic package, I was just happy with some wine.
by NOA Restaurant
I had dinner at the by NOA restaurant which had an excellent three-course menu. The by NOA Restaurant and the Coffee & WineLounge have a selection of 60 wines that all can be ordered by the glass. I could pair the wines according to my taste and the dish on offer.
The chef has created some fantastic eating experiences here. The servicing staff had great knowledge of the food served and created some excellent wine pairing with my dishes. My starter was the Movenpick classic the Steak Tartare, which can be ordered around the world in any Movenpick hotel. Everywhere it will taste and look the same, it’s Mövenpick‘s signature dish.
My main was the guinea fowl and it was cooked to perfection. I loved the presentation.
Individual bites combined with Mövenpick ice cream is what we all love. That is why this dish was delicious.
This flagship hotel is brilliant because it allowed me to experience the Mövenpick Hotel The Hague in a new innovative way. The staff were ever so friendly, and fun to be around. As many of us are on staycation the way hotel staff interact is what makes any hotel special. The hotel culinary offerings are of a very high standard. Even if you don’t choose to stay here, it is worth dining at The Mövenpick Hotel The Hague. This hotel is centrally located and a fabulous quiet place to stay in the centre of The Hague. If you choose to stay ask for Executive Sleep 219.
The coffee experiences are great fun and the overall ambience makes this hotel very special. There is a nice outdoor setting which is not busy and has a lovely view of the church. Thanks for a fabulous stay.
