4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I can't speak to the hotel, the outside looks nice. I was in the bar which is part of the hotel. After tramping around Harderwijk for looking a drink that in a place that wasn't a restaurant I found Baars. The staff are very nice, multilingual and it is warm. Good selection of draft and bottle beers, coffee too. A really olde worlde Dutch hotel bar lounge.

We purposely booked at Hotel Baars as we didn’t want the traditional modern hotel. Our room was very spacious with a great view looking onto the church. Loved the sound of the chimming bells. Our room was on the dark side and could have done with more lighting. The heating worked well. The bed cover was very light and I thought we would be cold but as it turned out it was warm enough. There are blankets in the cupboards. WiFi fast and consistent. The Hotel is conveniently situated in the center of town so within walking distance of everything. Parking is available not to far from the Hotel. Staff are helpful and friendly. Overall a pleasant Hotel.

Good hotel, clean with nice rooms (I stayed in the suite which is quite spacious with a bathroom with jacuzzi ). Heating was a bit of a problem and took a while to warm up the room. Breakfast is adequate. Hotel offers parking down the street. Location is nice in the center of town.

The hotel and rooms are of a very good standard. Beds are comfy and everything is very clean and well maintained. The location is very good, it is right on the central road with many shops and restaurants. Only problem with this is that it was very noisy on a Friday night and didn't;t get much sleep. There was also a lot of noise from just outside my door, not sure what it was, kind of buzzing/machine sound??? Worthy of note is that there restaurant is lovely, really good food. In conclusion a good quality hotel but request a quite room away from the main road.

Let's start with the best thing of this hotel, the staff. They are very friendly and helpfull. Always greeting and making a small talk with children. Also the hotel has a parking permit for free parking nearby (5 min walk). This was excellent. Breakfast was sufficient and well stocked. However, the hotel is a bit dated. The basic are all there and it's fine for a night or weekend. But it is not very modern. The bed cover was synthetic and it was warm. All in all, a good stay with thanks to the staff.

The room was Poorly maintained rooms , dark and dingy, tv not work mini bar I stocked, need I go on !!! Heating went from freezing cold to boiling hot all night so not a comfortable stay. I complained but was told this is usual for there double room and if I wanted things to a better standard I should have booked a deluxe room.

I just returned from two phenomenal days at the Hotel Baars. First, the front office and service staff was extremely attentive. Second, the rooms were recently updated and, despite the traditionally small Dutch bathroom, the renovation made sure all amenities were tastefully available. I also had a gorgeous view from my room. Third, I had two dinners at the Hotel Baars and they were scrumptious, especially the Schnitzel served "Dutch" style. I also enjoyed the bountiful buffet breakfast. Overall the Hotel Baars comes with my highest recommendation.

we spent two nights at this hotel , the location , the hospitality , the room is a bit old but who cares? very nice buffet breakfast and above all I want to mention the the great man at the front desk Loy who did all he can to make our stay the best. well done....

A short but first class experience. My wife, daughter and I arrived around 9 pm and were greeted well by the receptionist and given an excellent room with very comfortable beds, before parking our car overnight in the nearby garage. In the morning we had an excellent breakfast from a wide choice of quality foods and a friendly chat with one of the staff. Check out was also quick and efficient. A great place to stay in a beautiful small town.

I have never stayed in a more welcoming and friendly hotel. The staff are superb and incredibly helpful. The food is excellent, as is the service. The room was clean, spacious and very comfortable. The location is very central. I will stay again next time I am in the area.
