Surroundings

The 750-year-old city of Groningen has much to offer, also in a cultural-historical sense. A 5-minute walk from the City Hotel Groningen will lead you to the Prinsenhof with its Prinsentuin. This Renaissance courtyard has a rose garden, a herb garden and footpaths sheltered by ivy-covered arches. The entrance boasts what experts claim to be the Netherlands' finest sun dial. Nearby, you can climb the 97-metre-high Martini Tower, which offers a truly breathtaking view of Groningen.

Every day between 07:00 and 10:00. the hotel serves a continental breakfast buffet in the breakfast restaurant. On the weekend this breakfast is served between 08:00 and 11:30. Every floor of the City Hotel Groningen offers coffee and tea making facilities that guests can use for free.The atmospheric hotel bar is open every day. Besides a good glass of wine or a nice beer this bar also offers some small bar snacks. It is open from 17:00 until 01:00. The hotel does not have its own restaurant for lunch or dinner, but this should not be a problem at all.

    Onaangenaam

    Hotel ligt goed bij de centrum

    Kamer was vies heel klein voor een superiumroom. Airco werkte niet en het was 29 graden. De matras was alsof je op de virring sliep. Heel slecht geslapen. voor minder dan 125 euro pn hebben wij in betere hotels geslapen.

    heerlijk ontspannen verblijf in (een van de) mooiste steden van NL

    prima, we komen regelmatig (en graag) terug locatie perfect, kamers aangenaam, personeel vriendelijk, ontbijt geweldig

    wat overlast van enthousiaste jongelingen, maar daar kan het hotel niets aan doen misschien een idee om (gratis?) parkeren mogelijk te maken

    “My tip: groninger museum altijd geweldig!”

    friendly hotel in great location

    very friendly and helpful staff, great atmosphere. funky roof terrace to have a cuppa while gazing at the city below; I'd asked for a quiet room high up in the building and was not disappointed.

    bathroom not the latest model, but perfectly clean and working

    Okay for one or two nights if you don't have be in the hotel for long.

    Staff is very friendly. It is in the centre of Groningen.

    Rooms/bathrooms are small and pokey (standard room, I didn't see the others) Night life is lively around the hotel, some noise.

    Clean and comfortable with friendly staff and near to city centre.

    Made to feel very welcome when checking in, same level of friendliness and helpfulness throughout our stay. Complimentary tea/coffee near to lift of each floor. Bed and pillows very supportive. Complimentary access to internet and emails. Nothing too much trouble for the staff. City centre location. Good choice of breakfast.

    Wanted to stay there again but reluctantly had to book elsewhere due to maximum occupancy available of 2 persons per room meaning our my wife and I and our daughter would need to have two rooms, doubling the cost.

    Great base for city-trip to Groningen

    Excellent location for city-center with lots of restaurants and cafes nearby, very close to pancake ship too. Very friendly and helpful staff.

    Mattress and pillows could have been more comfortable.

    Would happily recommend the City Hotel Groningen.

    Friendly and Helpful Staff 12:00 check out is great means you feel quite relaxed and don't have to rush.

    More special offers and last minute deals would be great. My stay was for a special occasion so didn't mind paying for a one off event however would be more inclined to use the hotel if it were sometimes cheaper. Especially at qieter times of the year etc.
