Groningen is a lively place and the hotel was in the city square with lots of bars outside and heaters to keep away the cold. Although I had a room at the front, it was not too noisy but if you are a light sleeper some earplugs might be a good idea. Good breakfast and nice clean room. Shower lacked... More

Having despatched our son off to university at Groningen (Groningen in Holland? I hear you ask) yes it is to do with the fees and the course, being in English - does it matter - Newtons law is newtons law all over the world. So, having to take some needed supplies (fresh undies) etc. We went to visit, staying at... More

A very good location to visit the town. You have to park your car in one of the city parkings but then you can walk to the hotel. Nice paintings everywhere in the hotel. Friendly people. We liked the atmoshere!

As others have pointed out the location does not get any better, though the inner city is small and other hotels are at walking distance too. The interior is old, which adds to the atmosphere, but also is starting to look tired. There is no air conditioning, and even on a not so hot summer day my room got stuffy... More

One can find this hotel in a very center of Groningen at the central town square (Grote Markt). This location can be a blessing but also a curse depending on your personal preferences. As the hotel is linked to one of the greatest pubs one should be prepared for nosily nights especially during summer when the pub terrace is open... More

With the absolut best location rigth in the center at the big Marketplace, but you have to park 10 minuts away in a parking house. Hotel style is old like English with furniture in same. There is a lift , but many stairs and a bit problematic for elder people. Room small and a bit warn down, a new carpet... More

Nice hotel. We had a two day stay and it was not to bad. Not the cheapest place to stay. The bed was a bit soft but comfortable. Great location as the Grote Markt square is on the front step. Very busy on the weekends. But has a great atmosphere. Enjoyed our stay.

Hotel de Doelen is in the centre of town, an easy walk from the station. Stayed here one night on a business trip. Hotel has an old-fashioned feel but my room (105) was thoroughly modernised and very comfortable. Bathroom was immaculate and spacious. The free wifi worked well in the room. Breakfast included three hot dishes as well as the... More

It just popped-up, in the morning we were discussing what to do and before we knew it we were in Groningen, northern part of the Netherlands. At the Grote Markt, the city centre there was by coincidence a fancy fair, so a lot of people were there. Anyhow, the hotel is situated at this place. We didn't know what to... More
