Yesterday I had the opportunity to visit one of the Hague’s best kept secrets: Haagsche Suites, a hotel owned by Guido van den Elshout (@HappyHotelier). Behind the facade of a townhouse situated between the city center of The Hague and the beach resort Scheveningen, he and his wife Irene run a small but very luxurious hotel with three large suites. The interior is just fingerlicking gorgeous, and a beautiful garden tops it off.
The purpose of my visit was not a stay however, but a meetup with the bloggers of Absolutely The Hague and Hofstijl. A diverse group of people who share two interest: their passion for the city of The Hague, and their believe in Social Media and sharing stuff. Absolutely The Hague aims at English speaking people, be it expats, tourists or people taking interest in The Hague. The Hofstijl blog – on the other hand – is written in Dutch and takes a somewhat non-conventional view of our city with beautiful stories, photos and videos. The goal of this first meeting was to share experiences and see if we could collaborate in certain areas.
It was a nice meeting, and sure hope this will be the start of a fruitful collaboration. Thanks, Maurits Burgers (@MauritsJF), Melinda Roos (@MelindaRoos), Suzy Ogé (@suzyoge), Lisa Rouissi (@koffiekitten), Marco Raaphorst (@Raaphorst), Karin Ramaker (@metkcom), Ellie Brik (@EllieBrik), Niek ‘t Hart (@interniek), and of course, Guido van den Elshout (@HappyHotelier).
