My mum came to visit me this summer, and while she was here we spent two nights at Hilton Hotel The Hague. The hotel is located only a tram ride away from Den Haag Centraal Station. After alighting at Dr. Kuyperstraat, which is the nearest tram stop to the hotel, we walked for about ten minutes to our destination.
As soon as we arrived, we checked in and were shown to our room shortly afterwards. The room we stayed in is quite spacious, especially for a room with two single beds. It also houses a big bathroom with a shower and a bath.
After we’d settled in, we decided to take advantage of the warm weather and went out to explore…
Life in the Netherlands consists of braving it through the cold and the rain for most of the year as you eagerly look forward to the warmth of summer.
The atmosphere immediately changes as soon as the sun comes out. Not only do the flowers start blooming, but most people ditch their heavy winter jackets for light spring coats, and fewer people can be seen dining inside restaurants while the outdoor cafés become more and more crowded.
Soon after, people start finding their way to the beach.
