    Royalty hotel with a great service

    Service, location, bar and restaurant



    Travelling alone september 2019

    Delicious croissants and good coffee. Nice fruit salad too

    It was a hot day and the room was way too hot and had no AC

    Quiet hotel, room at the back well shaded from street noise

    Entrance of the hotel not reachable by car, which is a disadvantage when carrying heavy luggage.

    A night club in the building

    Interior, service and the whole environment.

    A night club in the basement the same neighboring building Convenient for some, but the ones who are looking for a decent good night sleep - do not recommend at all

    Excellent hotel. Excellent location.

    Just really close to bars and party zone. In front of so many terraces.

    Bed too small for 2 persons.

    Best experience!

    Location is wonderful and hotel staff are very helpful and friendly

    None that i have seen

    “My tip: The town center is exactly as you come out of the hotel and it is full of Cafes and Pubs. But if you would like to know what exactly to do in town, head over to the pub right next to the hotel, buy yourself a drink and ask the barkeep whee you could see the nightlife wonders of Groningen. ”

    Great Property

    This is the second time I stayed at this property and it was great. The location is very central and the staff friendly.

    It would be great to have tea/coffee available all day.


    Travelling alone april 2013

    Historic Hotel at the Right Price

    - terrific historic atmosphere - right in the middle of the city - good value

    - a bit of street noise on the weekend


    Travelling alone oktober 2012


    Locatie: pal in het centrum, dus goed bereikbaar + een prima startpunt. Redelijk sfeervol. Vriendelijk personeel.

    - Locatie: pal in het centrum aan een druk plein met veel uitgaanspubliek. Reserveer een kamer aan de achterzijde. - men bleek niet in staat om gedurende mijn vier dagen goed internet te regelen. Ook nadat "het hele kastje was vervangen" bleef de verbinding op mijn kamer moeizaam. (Ter compensatie kreeg ik vier keer gratis ontbijt - dat dan weer wel.) - Bent u slecht ter been, dan kunt u het hotel beter mijden. Of nadrukkelijk vragen om een kamer op een verdieping waar de lift komt


    Travelling alone september 2012

    Homely comfort in town centre

    A great team of reception staff, friendly and interested.

    Bedside lamp too dim.

    “My tip: Rooms at the front may be noisy at weekends.”


    Groups september 2012

    Great hotel, fantastic local

    Great location, we arrived 3hrs pass checking in time, but staff couldn't of been more helpful, even checking on Internet for us for dates of next years events. Room was clean, bed really comfortable, Saturday night was noisy, due to pub next door but was told upfront when booked. Already booked again for next year

    Only 2 requests use higher wattage light bulbs as room a little dark in evening to put make up on, also please move mirror to wall with sockets on. (Room 215).

    “My tip: When checking in get member of staff to show u how coffee machine works, as couldn't find anyone in morning to ask”

    Great hotel very comfortable and centrally located.


    Young couples maart 2012

    Unexpected facilities in side the room, you should try the VIP room. It was amazing.

    “My tip: I visited the city several times trying different hotels, my experinse with hotel de doelen Groningen was outstanding. ”


    Other februari 2012

    friendly and convenient hotel in good location

    Very convenient location. bus stop outside. 10 mins from train station. staff very helpful and friendly.

    Breakfast buffet not great. we came to breakfast in last half hour and boiled eggs hard and not much bacon or scrambled egg left. could be upgraded.

    “My tip: Ask to have breakfast buffet replenished.”


    Young couples december 2009

    Excellent stay!

    The locations is excellent and having the sauna and hot tub made it a fresh wake-up, ready for breakfast.

    The price is a bit high.

    Excellent location with good service!

    There may be some noise from the bar nearby. There is a construction work going on at the square in the front of the hotel (Sept 2009).

    Travelling alone juli 2009

    Sfeer vergoelijkt verouderde infrastructuur niet

    Mooie locatie, parking handig dichtbij, sfeervolle plek.

    Jammer dat sfeervolle hotels zo achter blijven op HIFI en IT gebied. Nachtlawaai uit een aanpalende pub..


    Older couples juli 2009

    If you want to sleep, don't book the 'Grand Hotel de Doelen'!

    Good bathroom for such an old hotel. Centrally located.

    Loud, increasing noise from the street-restaurant below. Not possible to find any sleep until 2:00 AM. Room very small for this high price.


    Ruben van Voorst
    Young couples mei 2009

    Perfect location

    Very good location, the hotel is located at the \'Grote Markt\' right in the centre. The personel was very kind, it didn\'t matter that we came 15 minutes earlier en left 10 minutes later than we had to

    Maybe the noise of the disco next to the hotel. It didn\'t botter us, but our room was the farest away from the disco.
