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

I spent only one night in the hotel. Check-in time of the hotel is from 15 o'clock but I arrived around 13h. The receptionist didn't complain about me being too early and was really nice and helpful. I booked a single room, but my room had a double bed which was quite a nice surprise cause it's more comfortable to... More

Being located slap on the central square, this hotel couldn't be better located for those wanting to stay in a central location but I would advise you sort out directions to the hotel (or rather to a car park nearby) before you travel rather than rely on Sat Nav - mine just could not cope with the labyrinth of one...

I arrived late in the evening, the kitchen just closed, but they managed to get me some food which was all I needed. A nice glass of wine, and some food, now I could relax after a long day working and travelling around Netherlands. The room was really good, the only disappointment was that someone had a cigarette in the... More

I stayed in a VIP Suite for two nights. The hotel is on the Grote Markt, which is perfect if you want to explore the pretty town of Groningen. We travelled by train, so didn't have any problem with parking, We arrived at the hotel at 13:00. but were able to check into our room early. The staff were all... More

Stayed 1 night. The hotel is right in the central square of Groningen; a lovely Dutch town. The bedrooms are a bit odd as they are small and oldy worldy but with huge modern bathrooms with walk-in showers etc. Having said that the hotel is certainly somewhere I’d stay again. The staff were really helpful and cheery. Very clean, nice... More
