Built in a classic neo-renaissance architecture, the Nederlandsche Bank (Dutch Central Bank) was built in 1883, recognisable for its bold, straight lines, crossing frames and natural stone exterior.
Marble columns, brass elements and art deco-stained glass adorn the walls of Hotel Indigo The Hague, whose design is inspired by its proud heritage. Every room of this boutique hotel tells a story, related to its past..
Authentic features tell the story of this former Dutch Central Bank, including the original gold safe in the basement – open for meeting and events – and an emptied vault that has made way for the ambient Gold Bar – where you can enjoy a drink or bite. What was formerly the cashier office is now the inviting Brasserie Stock & Bonds restaurant open for breakfast, brunch and dinner!
Hotel Indigo – The Hague Palace Noordeinde puts you in the city’s most prestigious shopping streets, surrounded by regal and political history at every turn.
Difficult to miss, the magnificent Royal Palace Noordeinde of King Willem-Alexander and the immaculate Palace Gardens sit only a stone’s throw from the hotel.
