We, owners Anuschka en Wim lived in the Anna Paulowna street opposite the beautiful building that was to become our hotel. We fell instantly in love with the Anna Paulownaplein: the perfect location to relax after a busy working week. The square charms at all hours of the day: breakfast, coffee, lunch or dinner and friends often stop by to share the joy.

After our daughter Mila (2011) was born we discovered the Palace Garden, a lovey place to relax; you can be on the beach in 10 minutes by tram / bus, the city center and all the city’s sights are easily accessible.

Anuschka has been a fashion buyer for 16 years, traveled to Portugal, Turkey, Morocco, Mauritius, New York, Hong Kong, China, India, Bangladesh and stayed there in large-scale luxury hotels. But she felt a need for small-scale personal and domestic hotels.

Wim was an independent entrepreneur as an interior builder. He makes all types of custom furniture and kitchens with passion. He loves pure natural materials and has an eye for details.

In Bruges, Wim’s brother John has B&B ‘Huis het Schaep’ and sister Sandra owns The Town House. The preference for gastronomy, hotel industry and hospitality runs in the family! This triggered Wim: would we also open a B&B? The old office building at Anna Paulownaplein 3 was extremely suitable and had been vacant for 4 years. A great location for a boutique hotel. Wim started making plans and sketches.

We want to contribute to the reuse of materials, hence the bar in Hortus made from recycled wood. We refurbished pieces of furniture and accessories of Anuschka’s father and those we bought on vintage markets, for reuse.

After 8 months of intensive renovations, we opened our doors in May 2015.

We hope to welcome you soon in our Boutique Hotel La Paulowna.
Wim & Anuschka

@gofundme - please help us trough the corona crisis.
.
For sure all will change after corona. How?... this is the question. We will be more local in all kind of ways. Buy groceries from the local markets and support the local shops. When you are abroad shop at small boutiques stay at small boutique hotels or B&B’s. And try to Book direct. .
Hopefully we will be more green then before. .
Anyway I’am not willing to give up our dream all the passion and love we have to give for our guests. I miss my guests 💔 #stayhealthy .
We own sustainable entrepreneurship, we have been awarded with the gold #greenkey we love the 🌎. .
Hope you can help us, if now we will still 🍀 like you the same 🙏🏻

.
Wim is picture shy, easily bored and don’t want to pose 🙈.
.
Also as a family the pictures are rarely with all 4.... unless its a good try selfie. 😂
.
Thank you Roos for making everybody shine and feel comfortable. .

Check in / check out, repeat and again. 🤪 almost 5 years. This moment is exciting and i get energy of meeting our guests. .
At this is the desk i welcome the guests and explain them about #thehague city. .
I always suggest #mesdagmuseum as this my favorite painting in 3 minute walking distance. For me this painting gives me rest and relaxation. .
