Nice and clean, but there is a pub downstairs.
It is really clean and the rooms look nice.
It is located near to the shops and restaurants.
There is a cinema in front of the hotel.
There is a pub downstairs that doesn't leave you sleep very well. The people that is on the pub have most of the time access to the Pension Tivoli and makes you feel uncomfortable.
One room's hitting didn't work really well and it was cold.
They didn't give us the Wireless password to use the Internet.

basic and spartan but cheap, central and easy to find.
Cheap, central, no fuss, owner nice and straightforward. Basic but sufficient for a short stay without much needs.
Tea and coffee, microwave and water boiler provided.
Has single rooms.
Corridor is unheated and leads to an outer patio without proper insulation: wear a coat to go to the toilet or shower!
Bring your towel, those given are too small to take the cold corridor. No fridge.
Cash only, no debit or credit cards
*my tipBring a towel.
City center is right at the doorstep, everything is reached within 5-10 min on foot.
Owner's bar seems nice.

Look beyond the staircase!
Upon seeing the steep staircase we were a little worried, but our rooms were clean and accommidating. The location was also very good. For the price we were quite satisfied
*my tipPack light because it's not that easy to lug a big old suitcase up and down the stairs

Clean, but very basic
Very steep stairs
Room not serviced
*my tipPractice rock climbing!
Zeer vriendelijk personeel!
- a very good location
- a microwave, fridge and kettle in the room. It made the stay more comfortable.
When I took a shower, there was no hot water (only cold or warm), so I felt frozen
Tivoli, I Lov It!
Friendly welcome by Frans, we had to ring up but he answered straight away. Free Wifi. Room was quite spacious. Reasonable value for money. Right in the city centre, great for shopping and going out. Will use it again.
cheap, clean , location.
the hotel is perfectly located in a city center. In the room additionally was a microwave, a kettle
Cheap and clean
Cheap and clean. Perfect for people who just need a bed for the night.
It is on the first and second floor of a pub that has open until 2am - you don't really hear it, but it's there. So if you don't like that idea, this may not be for you.
Great on price - and on noise; close to the station and paid-for sex
Cheap; convenient for the City Centre, and only one block from Groningen's red-light district
Little thought has been given to mitigating noise: fellow guests often arrived back in the early hours of the morning (when the bars close and the hot women go cold) and often woke me up as they clattered upstairs and rammed their keys into their room doors
Good for a weekend out with the lads in Groningen
Cheap and in the centre of Groningen.
Take your ear plugs.
This hostel had a reasonable price for their comfortable room
The bed was very good
The floor in the room...
week end in groningen
(Families with older children)
good cheap & cheerful city hotel
Only accepts cash. This was not clear at the time of booking.

City trip to Groningen
Easy going, near or in the city center of Groningen.
Good location close to city centre and train station.
Microwave in the room.
Good price-performance ratio.
If you want breakfast, you have to order the day before; however, I was not informed about this when I arrived and thus could not have breakfast after the first night.
Bed sheet with some non-washable spots (clean?)
Wireless internet service not stable.
