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

Pros: Location - walking distance to everything as it's in the main centre square. Price - was just under €200 for the 3 nights Bed - supersize and very comfy Bathroom - nice... 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

For my three night visit to Groningen I stayed at the Hotel de Doelen. The hotel is roughly 10 minutes walk from the train station and is located in the Grote Markt, which is the town square. The location is great for exploring the city as it is centrally located so you are close to most of the sight in... More

You're really in the center of the city when you stay in this hotel, rooms are clean and big. Everything is just a couple of steps away (food, drinks, shopping). Breakfast was quite poor for that price though...

Very nice and comfortable hotel. Staff very helpful during my stay at the hotel. There was one unpleasent situation - my company was paying my bill, and they charged company credit card twice, then did not answer for emails.

This hotel really is a must've been. Located at the very center of the city, many popular bars and places to go out at night or to have a bite to eat are directly next door. The hotel itself is as if you've travelled back in time to the glory days, with a restaurant looking like an old and beautiful... More

The hotel is very convenient in the centre of Groningen located on the central market area next to the Martini tower. The room I stayed in was fantastic value, a comfortable bed and a stocked mini bar! I have already made a reservation for my next trip.
