On the first of May 1881, Hotel Des Indes was officially opened by Prince Frederik of Oranje. The property was originally built in 1858 as a stately mansion for the treasurer of King Willem III, Baron van Brienen, before being turned into a hotel. The announcement from 1880 read: 'This first-grade hotel is the largest in the residency and has been newly furnished according to the standards of this current time.' 140 years later, Hotel Des Indes continues a tradition of grandeur in each of its 92 uniquely designed rooms and suites. We invite you to celebrate this special occasion with us.
Unfortunately, we are not allowed to host a grand reception at this time and therefore we will celebrate our 140 year anniversary throughout the year. We hope to re-open our restaurant doors for exciting packages and culinary surprises, like our famous Royal High Tea in the lounge.
Nestled in the heart of The Hague along the leafy Lange Voorhout, Hotel Des Indes is perfectly located to explore this charismatic city. The Hague has great masterpiece-filled museums, antique shops, storied theatres, beautiful public parks, all located within walking distance of the hotel. You can think of a visit to the Mauritshuis or Essher in the palace or try a delicious tasting at de Van Kleef Distillery. You can find the beachside in Scheveningen at only 15 minutes distance. Enjoy year-round activities such as a ride in the Ferris wheel situated on the famous Pier.
Combine your stay with a refreshing city walk or bike ride. We rent out push bikes as well as electric bicycles on request. If you prefer to explore the surroundings on foot, don't forget to bring your hiking shoes for beautiful routes through dunes and city.
