One of the more pleasant surprises I ever had was staying at the Hotels Carmel in Scheveningen. This was largely the case because it was virtually the only affordable hotel room I could book in all of Holland for when I arrived in the country. This was because of two reasons. The tall ships were visiting Amsterdam. The other was a cardiologist convention in that same city. The Netherlands was packed and hotel rooms was had to find. After some searching I found a room at the Hotels Carmel. Guess what? It was really nice.

Unique Qualities: The hotel is just 100 metres from the waterfront. There are lots of restaurants, bars and a casino nearby. Overall the atmosphere was very quaint. It sort of reminded me of Fawlty Towers in design. I was surprised by the size of my room too for it was fairly large. Finally the staff here was very friendly.
Initially when I posted this tip the website posted below I mentioned that it was in Dutch only but now there is an English link. I wonder if they did this just because of me?
