A grand, historic 5-star hotel in The Hague! The outside looks even more Wes Anderson-esque than the lounge (in photo). The exterior is a beautiful yellow, with the hotel's name in elegant block letters on top of the entrance. Thanks, Amsterdam1620 on Reddit for the recommendation!

Even before desk lamps, book lovers have been working out ways to read. The Handelingenkamer, or Old Library of the Dutch Parliament, was built with a glass dome. Generous light floods in, illuminating the four storeys worth of books. Climb the spiral staircase slowly for a few pictures as you ascend toward the light. Handbound books stand out perfectly with their golden spines. Cast iron, painted a deep red, is wrought in curly patterns on the railings of the staircase and the terraces. Keep an eye out for little details jutting out from the balconies—there are some fearsome dragons about! E-mail the office of the House of Representatives (or Tweede Kamer) ahead of time for a free tour of the library.
