Bed and Breakfast Art Déco
A refreshing alternative to the usual bland budget stay, Bed and Breakfast Art Déco is housed in a century-old building in an area dominated by art deco and art nouveau buildings. It's small (it only accommodates five) but its different approach offers a pleasant insight into the 'real' Hague.

Located just 150m (492ft) from the beach, and close to attractions like the casino and the Circus Theatre, this hotel offers 90 rooms with Wi-Fi internet access, coffee and tea making equipment on request in quiet surroundings.
