“Bella Vista 2”
Reviewed 20 December 2011

First: Be sure you know in which part of the hotel you're in!!
When I first walked in there was a very friendly person greeting me and explaining the parking etc to me.
The room 504 (in BV2 across from Theatre) looked a bit run down. Bathroom at first glance nice (grey marble) but upon further inspection needed some upkeep fast!
Location was great as we visited the theatre, it was right across the street.
The horror started with our 4 downstairs teen-neighbours and their drinking and smoking binge all night till 6AM. They ran around the hotel slamming doors, screaming and inviting strangers in. but at no time did the staff that can indeed see with the camera's from location1 do a thing. Needless to say: I did not sleep.
When I complained the next morning the lady that was there (different one) Seemed indifferent. I should have used my cell to call. When I told her my cell had died and that the only guest-phone was right by the room of the troublemakers all she said was "well can't do anything now"
So if you don't mind noisy (doors close with a bang!) and cheap at a good location, this is the place to be.

We stayed in the Fisherman's Cottage. Fairly basic, but well laid out and close walking to shopping and the beach. The cottage has two bedrooms and one bathroom upstairs, and a LR/DR with kitchenette and another bathroom downstairs. We were with 5, so we had an extra bed in one of the rooms.

The location was excellent with the tram very close by. The beds were good, the room was clean, the shower was beautiful, there was even a couch to sit on. Would stay here again.

Reviewed 12 October 2010

We were looking for a bed for the night and the Bella Vista seemed to be the best option regarding value for money as the reception and the public areas looked very nice. We needed to take an apartment room because all the other rooms were fully booked. They advertised it as being bigger than the deluxe room, however upon check in we realised that the room is just a double room with a small kitchen and fridge. The room was not as clean as you would expect eg Hairs on the towels, holes and dirt in the bed sheets. Also maintenance, in particular light bulbs, are not the strongest asset in the hotel.
The double bed are only two single beds put together on wheels, so during the night it happens more than once that we were falling through the middle.
Don't get us wrong, the room was ok for just one night, but with the tram being just in front of the window and the traffic, its not a relaxing night sleep. If you are looking for a cheap room for one night in Scheveningen we would recommend it to our friends.

I enjoyed staying here for a night. My partner and I booked an 'apartment' which had a kitchenette and sofa/TV downstairs and single + double bed upstairs, with a quirkily-shaped bathroom. Nice to have a bit of space after some small hotel rooms elsewhere. A lovely view of surrounding buildings outside, and the trams running past. A few of the details needed a bit of work (eg a very cheap shower nozzle fitting that kept falling apart, and a skylight window with a blind that didn't fit properly), but overall the hotel was nicely fitted out. Staff were generally friendly and helpful. Nearby is a shop selling the best baklava I've ever eaten - one of the delicatessens - bonus!

Bella Vista is nicely situated close to the beach and town of Scheveningen. The Hotel is scrupulously clean, well maintained and the staff are polite and helpful. Rooms are mostly of good size (though not much hanging space for clothes) and the beds are comfortable. Its a 2 minute walk to the beach and trams to the centre of the Hague and Delft run regularly from a tramstop that is almost right outside.

Everything looks great on arrival but the downside soon becomes apparrent at bedtime. The rooms have no double glazing and trams run from from 05:00 in the morning to past midnight! We came prepared with industrial-strength ear plugs but even then it was difficult to get to sleep and stay asleep before 01:00 and you can bet that if the trams don't wake you again at 05:00 the noisy plumbing from your neighbours flushing loo or morning shower will!

The management have obviously spent money on nice modern shower and toilet facilities but would have been better to invest in some serious double (even triple) glazing to cut out the outside noise.

If you're used to sleeping against a fairly noisy background, this hotel could be great for you, however if you need quiet to get to sleep, you could be in for a frustrating stay.
