Best Western Plus Hotel Haarhuis

100 years of Best Western Plus Hotel is Haarhuis

Hotel Haarhuis has been around since 1918 and has a rich history. The story of Hotel Haarhuis started as a coffee house in the heart of Arnhem. After the Second World War, the station area and the old town villa where Haarhuis was located were demolished. The Marshall Plan meant the “new” Haarhuis could be built. This was just behind the location where the city villa once stood.

In 1985, Hotel Haarhuis joined the Best Western chain. In 1999, a major renovation was started under the inspiring leadership of Arjen de Vries. The current owner is the EHM GROUP. The 100th anniversary was celebrated with a big party, and now Hotel Haarhuis boasts 127 comfortable rooms, a spacious lounge, an attractive restaurant (now called Perron 5), and a rooftop bar with phenomenal views and the ultimate toilet experience :-). All this in the bustling heart of Arnhem. Interior Group co-creators, Keijsers Interiors and De Projectgroep designed and conceived the comfortable hotel rooms.

The design of the room was based on further exploration of the “modern chic” theme, with comfort being paramount. Using many mood boards, natural materials were chosen with chic accents such as velvet chairs and luxurious wallpaper. This project meant Interior Group could make the best use of the added value of both co-creators.

Furthermore, Best Western Hotel Haarhuis has been awarded the Winner Travelers’ choice Award. This appreciation from the many guests was for the hospitality of Hotel Haarhuis.

We can imagine that you are still curious about the ultimate toilet experience. This is one neat toilet, you can see no less than 18 metres below you in this disused lift shaft. Press the button for the “ultimate experience” and you will be “blown away” by spectacular light effects. Why not come and see.
