I stayed here for one night on my touring holiday although I have stayed here two years ago while going to the MotoGP at nearby Assen. The hotel is located right on a large square where there is an amazing buzzy atmosphere day and night. Inside the hotel is traditional with polished wood and dark carpeting and a comfortable lounge... More

I stayed here one night and had booked the room only on the day I was arriving, so perhaps there were only a few rooms available. Still, it was a disappointment: the room was very hot and looked out on a blind wall about 2 metres from the window. There was some electrical machine outside which made a horrible noise... More

This hotel is right in the center of the city, small and cozy. The staff is very friendly and kindly answered all my requests. The room is quiet and comfortable, very clean. Breakfast is also very good. Recommended!

This hotel became a bit of a home to me, during my regular business visits to Groningen. It is right in the centre, with easy access to many restaurants. The landlady makes you feel welcome and the hotel has a bit of an old world feeling. Price is really good for what it is, and you get a nice breakfast... More

Lovely old world style hotel-open fire in the very comfortable guests' lounge. Friendly ,helpful staff. Groningen is a delightful university town which I had never heard of until my son embarked upon an exchange program there. I would definitely stay there at this hotel again

We stayed at De doelen one night on a short trip to Holland. The hotels position can not be more central (on the market place), so you have to leave your car in a parking house nearby (not included in the price). We had a rather small rooms, while our friends stayed in a bigger, though the booking was made... More

My wife and I traveled to Groningen and Hamburg (Ger.) recently to visit our daughter and son in law. We have been to Amsterdam several times, but not since 2009, and never to Groningen. It is in the middle of an agricultural area in the Netherlands and the home of a rather large and famous university that has been there... More
