The hotel was close to Martiniplaza, so it's ideal for someone who is participating in a conference there. The staff was very nice and so was the hotel lobby and room. Breakfast was good, so all in all it's a "safe bet" if you're thinking about booking this hotel. The only downside is that it's pretty expensive, but that might... More

Just checked in (very smoothly) and worked an hour in my fine room (free and fast wifi!). Nicely decorated only lights could be stronger in the bathroom :-). The bar/restaurant is a bit old fashioned and not so cosy. However, the excellent service of the waiters and great food on modern 'Delft' plates are outstanding!

This location was definitely my favorite when compared to the Amsterdam location. The room was modern, clean, and comfortable. The shower stall was a little weird. It's got one of those glass shields that doesn't cover the entire length of the shower area so water spills out quite easily....which if you're American, feels a little weird. It's near impossible to... More

Stayed here for the weekend. Location: About 20 mins walk from the Central station. With a car, it is indeed a fast access to the highway. Very close to the city exhibition and trade center. Check-in: Did an online check-in. Upon arrival everything was ready and spent less than 1 minute with the front desk. Very efficient. Staff: Very friendly... More

My daughter and I stayed in this hotel. we shared a room with twin beds. Its definitely very 'compact' with hardly any room to walk around the room. The bathroom is also small.

One of the greatest hotels I have ever visited! The room was really clean and it had many facilities for a standard room. It had a nespresso coffee machine, a water boiler and several teas and cocos that you could treat yourself. The bathroom was equipped with everything. All these supplies were refreshed every day. The view was enchanting! The... More

A very convenient hotel, with good public transport. The bed was large, and comfortable. Bathroom was rather small. Very helpful staff. Very good restaurant, for dinner A very good breakfast selection, but rather let down by a lack of crockery, cutlery and glasses, as staff had difficulty keeping up with replacements.

Conveniently located hotel if you need to be in this area. The hotel is modern and the rooms are fine. The bar/restaurant serves reasonably good diner despite the lack of other options close by. Breakfast is fine but quite expensive (17,50 Euro pp). You can walk to the city center (guess 30 mins) or rent a bike from the front... More

This hotel is located outside Groningen town centre, takes about 25 mins to walk to the city centre and about €8/9 for the taxi fare. I stayed in one of the single rooms, which was quite small and had a single bed (although a bit bigger than average); usually most of the hotels I stayed at during my business trips... More
