I had business at the Uni so this Hotel was in a great location. It's easily accessible via cab or public transport (which in The Netherlands is excellent), and the staff where very friendly and helpful with recommendations of restaurants etc. As others have said, the rooms can be noisy due to music coming from nearby pubs - it didn't...

The hotel is very central and within walking distance from the train station (you can also take a taxi for about 5€, if you have heavy luggage). The room I was in was on the third floor. I do not know why, but that floor was awfully hot even though it was not hot outside and the heating in my... More

Located on the campus - very basic, we had a private room - not much in it except a bed (I am not sure if a TV was there) - but convenient if you want to do something on the campus. To get to the room we had to walk along the floor for a while. In spite of not... More

The hotel is right in the city center, very easy to reach the shops and restaurants area. The rooms are very big, seems to be recently refurbished. Also very clean. The breakfast was good as well, and the nice part is that there was always tea and coffee available at any time.

If you want to visit Groningen, The Netherlands it is most conveniant to choose a hotel in the city's centre. The University Hotel offers just that so you can enjoy everything Groningen has to offer without the need for a car or public transport. The rooms are small but comfortable, the beds are really good. Reception was friendly and helpfull.... More

I stayed here for three weeks and the only issues I had were: 1. the noise from the adjacent pub and 2. the room they kindly moved me to after the first night did not have wifi. However, the day I left, the room was connected to wifi. The rooms were clean, the shower adequate, and the bed comfortable. The... More

I have now stayed here for a month every year over the last four years, seen the hotel before and after one minor and one major refurbishment, and through all this have found it as consistent as ever. Staff, even part-timers working after hours, are utterly dependable, understanding and helpful. Location is ideal, Groningen itself is a great place to... More

Ideally situated for business stay in Groningen. Is safe, clean, comfortable and has all the essentials. Breakfast options were good and well presented.The only downside of the city centre ease of location is that it can be a little noisy. A small gym and/or map of local running routes could be the only improvement. I would stay again for business... More

I stayed one night in the University Hotel during a visit to the University of Groningen. The hotel is located in the center of the city and you have a lot of restaurants and bars around the hotel to choose from. The facilities of the hotel are all fairly new and the room I had was in a top condition.... More

Great location if you like being in the centre of bars. Very nice reception staff but then downhill. My room was over a nightclub and the bass came right through . It smelt. Was small. Etc. In fact not one redeeming feature.
