NH Groningen Hotel de Ville is a luxury 4-star hotel in the heart of Groningen. The narrow little streets shelter countless boutiques and university buildings. Groningen is a real student town; nearly a quarter of its residents are studying either at the University of Groningen or at the Hanze University of Applied Sciences. This city is blessed with several lovely courtyards with almshouses. The Pelstergasthuis, for instance, dates back to the 13th century and has had several functions over the years. Locals now live in many of these former almshouses and hospitals. What's more, the courtyards have open access and tours are organised here.
Groningen has several striking buildings, including its famous Martini Tower. The tower, which was once 127 metres high, was dramatically reduced in height when a bonfire (following the departure of Spanish and Walloon troops in 1577) was responsible for the partial collapse of the tower. Nowadays, the tower is 97 metres high; an iconic sight that is visible right across the city. Lost tourists only need to look upwards and the tower will lead them straight back to the Grote Markt square.
NH Groningen Hotel de Ville has all the facilities you may expect from a 4-star hotel. The hotel offers bike hire, a laundry service, and a lovely bar/bistro. The rooms come with free wireless Internet, a mini-bar, a telephone, a safe, and a selection of pillows. An iron and ironing board are available on request.
