Stayed at Hotel Haarhuis for four nights using it as a base on my holiday to explore the area. The hotel is directly opposite Arnhem Central Train Station. It's just one hour to Amsterdam, 15 minutes to Nijmegen and an hour to Eindhoven. I had a single room on the top (4th) floor which was adequate for my needs. The room had complimentary coffee and a free to use room safe. The free hotel wifi was also very reliable and ran throughout the building.
Breakfast was from 0630 hrs and was excellent with toasts/bread, cereal, fruit, yoghurts, cooked and other things. There was also teas, coffees and various fresh fruit juices.
Staff on reception were friendly and helpful.
Besides being opposite the train station, there is a Spar supermarket also opposite and McDonalds for those that want fast food. You are however within less than 5 minutes walk to the city centre where there are numerous cafes, pubs and restaurants.
The only thing that was slightly annoying was the renovations being done on the 4th floor which were right next to my room. The workmen were on site hammering and making a noise from just after 7am. Whilst I used them as an alarm clock to get up to make the most of my day, it would be an annoyance if you wanted a bit of a lie in. If you're booking the hotel in the coming weeks then you may wish to consider this when your room is allocated. Other than that, the work must be done and who knows, you may be lucky to get one of the newly refurbished rooms!
The hotel was reasonable in price and suited my needs. Although unlikely that I will return to the same area, I would not however hesitate to recommend Hotel Haarhuis to friends and family who may consider staying in this part of Holland. less
