Hotel het Paleis houses in an impressive monumental building, that was formerly used as a chemical laboratory by the University of Groningen. The old college halls are now being used for (business) meetings and approximately 70 creative companies have their office at Het Paleis.
The vibrant student city offers many activities and festivals. Within walking distance of Het Paleis lies the Grote Markt, a square where you can have a drink at one of the outdoor cafés in summertime. Groningen also boasts several interesting museums, such as the Groninger Museum, the Scheepvaart-/Tabaksmuseum and the Stripmuseum. The most striking feature of the city is the Martini tower, from where visitors have a lovely view of the city and its surroundings.
The comfortable hotel rooms have been designed by local artists and they are truly unique. Each room has a private bathroom with shower and toilet. Only the rooms for multiple persons share a spacious bathroom, which is located in the hallway. There is also a shared kitchen, perfect to make yourself a cup of tea, coffee, or a home-cooked meal. In the lounge you can watch some television or use the computer.
