This was a very good hotel for our one night stay. It was about a 12 minute walk from the train station. The room was comfy and clean, andd the staff at the front desk were friendly. We had the breakfast buffet which was excellent. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Prijs kwaliteit voor een overnachting 2 personen met ontbijt 59 was geweldig. Je loopt binnen 5 min het centrum van Groningen in. Receptie was erg vriendelijk. Voor een prima prijs de auto in de hotelgasten gezet. Uitgebreid ontbijt en vriendelijke Dame in de bediening bij het ontbijt.ik vind het echt een aanrader.

- Quiet room and comfortable - Very good service from front desk staff - Flexibility for late arrival which made easier my logistics - Central location - Complete breakfast
- I wrote a comment during the booking for late arrival (since I was busy in meetings during the day), but did not get a response to my comment. Therefore, I had to call on the same day to make sure the booking was not cancelled (since there was a message in the booking confirmation mentioning this). This is a minor detail I think, but it is a small improvement that could make the stay in this hotel perfect (since otherwise I have no complaints).

Hotel has own parking. vEry close to the centre. Breakfast is good. Staff was extremely friendly and helpfull. Can recommend the hotel.
We had a partially blocked drain in shower, one attempt was made to fix, but did not work. The offered to fix it again, but it was our last morning. The hair dryer installed in the bathroom was not working properly. I was given a new handheld one to use. It is still a student city, and you wake up several times due to noisy persons passing by. It might be better to be on the 7th floor than on the first.
Older couples augustus 2017
In a quiet position just minutes away from the, student filled, city centre.
Renovation work being carried out - but this added to the lower price
“My tip: Get a discount 24 hour parking voucher when you check out at reception and just park in the local multi storey car parks ( choice of 2 only minutes away )”

Friendly staff, lovely breakfast, clean room and a really comfy bed. It was also great to be able to lock bikes securely in the basement car park. It was also great value.
It s a busy area and the room was noisy with the windows open. Closing them meant it became very hot.
“My tip: Stay in the back of the hotel (north facing). Parking at the hotel - like anywhere in Groningen - is expensive. We parked our car for free in a suburb and cycled into the city.”

hospitality, good breakfast, friendly personnel
“My tip: maybe a mini bar in the room ”
Older couples augustus 2014
Excellent location, at walking distance from the center and the railway station. Great view over the city and or the canal, at least from the upper floors. Spacious, confortable room. Excellent, abundant breakfast (extra), well worth the additional 15 euros free cofee and tea available from an automatic machine 24h a day.
Room lighting could be better. Too few clothes hangers in the closet and none outside it.
“My tip: Take the walking tour recommended by the tourist information center. You ll visit most of the interesting places in thecity. Don t forget to climb the Martini tower, whre you can even ring the bells. The Hema store near the center has an excellent cafeteria where you can inexpensively eat and or drink something (non-alcoholic).”

Kamer en badkamer. En ligging hotel.
Toen we aankwamen was het personeel erg met zichzelf bezig. Zien en reageren niet als er iemand binnen komt. In de ochtend was het al veel beter. Ontbijt is goed maar sober. Ook de accommodatie en aankleding is verouderd.
“My tip: Tja, lees boven.”

The staff was able to make 2 mistakes on our invoice at departure. The hotel offers parking at a fee but requires that the guests have to leave their carkeys at the reception. The day of our departure we found out that they hadn't registered our key under the correct name which indeed was very unprofessional and caused us some problems and delayed our departure - not good enough!
“My tip: Excellent breakfast. Nice situated in the center of the city. Very cramped carpark in the hotels cellar and on our stay problems keeping track on our carkey (misplaced it and stored it under a wrong name).”

the staff were all very friendly and extremely helpful in all areas. Free coffee al the time was definately an added bonus, more hotels should do it.
Rooms could be a wee bit bigger, but only a small thing.
“My tip: All local coffee houses and restaurents in the area were very good, and always had somebody who spoke english!”

Location is near interesting places.
Room service: rearrangement of bed was poorly done. I needed to redo it myself.
