The old ABN AMRO building on Kneuterdijk has been completely renovated into a luxury hotel. It’s a beautiful property. We would like to take a look inside, and of course not only look but also sleep. And we did.

A night out in your own city. You probably won’t do it that fast, but it’s highly recommended. There are many special hotels in The Hague and you no longer have to make a long journey home after a night out. You can dive into bed in no time!

Voco The Hague

The building on the Kneuterdijk comes out 1923 and was for many years, until 2021, the head office of the ABN AMRO bank. After a major renovation, in June 2021 Hotel Voco The Hague opened with, spread over seven floors, 45 hotel rooms. †

View

After check-in, we step into the elevator to the third floor. As soon as we step into the room, we are drawn in by the view. From here you have a view over the Kneuterdijk. Despite being a busy street it is quiet inside. We don’t even hear the tram passing by.

Cocktails and steps

We are invited to have a cocktail in the hotel bar: Ultramarine. The interior is inspired by steampunk and a magical undersea world. That nautical world is reflected in the cocktail menu. You can order a ‘Captain’s Medicine’ with ginger and whiskey or a ‘Turn me rich’.

The most special thing about this bar is one floor below. There you can sit in the old safe of the bank!

From the Kneuterdijk dive you can easily enter the center of The Hague. After a bite to eat at Noordeinde (1 minute walk from the hotel) we stroll to the bustling Grote Markt and then continue our pub crawl at the Plein. After a few wines it is a 4 minute walk back to our hotel. After all the hustle and bustle of the street it is wonderful to ‘come home’. The room is well insulated so we are not bothered by the busy nightlife.

Breakfast

We can enjoy breakfast from the Botanica restaurant on the ground floor. The restaurant is a green oasis. Not a bad place to start the day. In the restaurant all tables are occupied, but there is plenty of space in the atrium, with a gigantic tree in the middle. Striking is the artwork with thousands of butterflies.

There is plenty available for breakfast, from beaten eggs to sausages, toast and smoothies.
