If you want to get a feel for Holland don’t overlook The Hague. Metro finds the places to eat, stay and play in Hague — all on a budget.
Wonderful Japanese restaurant serving sublime sushi and sashimi in an authentic setting. Dinner menus from $20 ,which is fantastic value. Often packed so make a reservation. (genki-tei.nl)
Hotel la Ville
A tiny hotel in the city centre facing the back garden of The Royal Palace Noordeinde. Lovely rooms, royal suites and apartments equipped with Wi-Fi, TV and movie channel.
Brilliant art gallery which gives the much flashier Rijksmuseum a run for its money. Arguably more greats per metre than any other Euro gallery, including Girl with a Pearl Earring.
This fabulously understated modern Euro restaurant just keeps picking up awards. The duck liver with quince is to die for, and the range of Armanacs is almost obscene.
The Corona Hotel is delightfully situated in three 17th-century buildings on the Buitenhof in the heart of the city. Classical atmosphere and modern facilities are perfectly combined.
This place embodies the strange Dutch concept of taking all of Holland’s best landmarks and miniaturizing them. Sounds dull, but is actually a quite surreal afternoon and the kids will love it. (madurodam.nl)
