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.

This hotel has an old school atmosphere and the rooms are clean. The carpets in the rooms could do with an update as they are fraying and smell a little old. The bathrooms on the other hand are clean, spacious and luxury. Breakfast was also good.

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
