Best Western Plus Hotel Haarhuis
Ranked #4 of 14 Hotels in Arnhem
Reviewed 27 April 2013

There are few hotel options in Arnhem and Haarhuis is capitalizing on this. The hotel is 3-star at most: once you've found your way from the (tiny) parking lot to reception by navigating through the messy and dirty basement and climbing up the narrow stairs you'll have to haul you luggage back down another flight of stairs to access the (tiny) elevator and finally reach your (tiny) room. First thing you'll want to do is open the window as the (tiny) rooms are stuffy - so ask for a room on the rear of the hotel to avoid the noise of the bus station opposite the hotel. The bed consists of three thick layers of soft foam so you literally sink into it, something I hate but others might enjoy. The interior walls are not very thick, so expect to listen in on your neighbour's phone calls and TV program. Bathrooms are tiny of course, but clean and efficient. The rooms offer reasonably fast wireless internet access.
The restaurant is OK: dinner options are limited but reasonably priced, breakfast is a simple buffet. There is also a pub in the hotel.
Haarhuis is building a new wing to the hotel with an extra 40 rooms (which promise to be "luxury") so expect construction noise starting at 7am sharp.

Room Tip: Rooms are tiny and have no ventilation so expect to sleep with your window open. Ask for a room on t...

Average probably isn't fair but very good would over rate, the photo flatters the hotel, bedroom was good and bed comfort excellent, bathroom was excellent, for a four star hotel would have ,expected better lift access to floors, reception was very pleasant and communction okay
, food is restaurant was good, service slow and wind simply awful for a four star establishment. Breakfast was something different, whilst selection and quality was excellent, no one looked to assist, no one one looked to clear tables, atmosphere was hectic whilst dinner the night before was quite and restaurant atmosphere was one if desertion! Very over priced for standard of facilities and service. Very mean in bedrooms on tea and coffee facilities two bags and two coffee sticks,! Between two of you and at the price charged borders on scrounge!

We dined at the Haarhuis on each of the two nights we stayed at the hotel. The promotion deal was good, the food was good and the ambience was good. Breakfast was entirely acceptable and better than many continentals. The building work didn't bother us at all and the hotel was extremely handy for the station.
The staff were friendly and helpful. Would go again.

This hotel serves it's purpose without any commitment. On the up-side: it's right across the street from the station, is has a decent breakfast, the bed was good (never underestimate the effect of a good night sleep), the room was clean, the bathroom was clean and functional, the people at the desk were helpfull, the wifi was free.
On the down-side: the place has no 4 star looks-and-feel, no atmosphere, it's a blank nondescript hotel with small rooms and - this one was new for me- they are under construction. That means that before nine in the morning our room was filled with hammering and drilling noises, shouting workmen and the likes. It turnes out that they bought two adjacent buildings and will add another 42 rooms to the place. Sometime spring 2013 they hope to get this job done.

Staff, food and location were all very good, room was small, too many chairs, could hardly move, beds were very small also. If you are driving to the hotel give your self an extra hour to circle the one way system of Arnhem, and the outer suburbs. Thank goodness for SatNav.
Overall very nice, the bar was comfortable and friendly as was the restaurant. I enjoyed Arnhem, nice little town, worth a stop over...

The rooms are very small. Old hotel, they are building a new extension with new rooms. Hot in the hotel on the hall. Lots of steps, not ideal for handicapted people.
Old fashion bathroom, tv, airco, and very small!.
Perfect breakfast en nice staff.

Room Tip: Choose an other hotel because value (prize - quality) is not very good!

This is a very good hotel in front of the rail and bus station. The location is perfect, close to city center and to the river. The breakfast was great, you have parking place for free and friendly staff Room was comfortable although the TV was a bit small, but who travels to watch TV anyway...
