As The Hague is an important business & government hub in The Netherlands I guess you have a lot of long term reservations?

What should we visit when staying in The Hague ? You offer rental bikes ?
There is so much to do, across the street we have the Gemeentemuseum, the Omniversum and within 10 minutes you will be at Madorudam.
Personally I like to go to the beach which is just 10 minutes away. Sometimes I see our guests doing the same… And yes we offer bikes for 9,50 a day.
Can you recommend to our readers some nice restaurants in your area?
I would like to recommend the ‘South of Housten’ a great restaurant in the city center, offering very nice steaks and fish.
You are offering accomodations in 3 cities in the so called Benelux (Belgium-Netherlands-)..do you have any plans to open B-apart hotels in other countries?
We are opening a new property in Amsterdam next year, also we have now 5 hotels in Brussels and 1 in Antwerp. And we are always looking for some new properties, so other countries could be an option yes.
Dennis, if you would have to leave today to live abroad, wherever on this planet , where would you like to live?
I would love to go back to Madagascar, a great county with great people.
See you there maybe ! Thanks Dennis for your time !
