Nice location in the centre of Groningen, a 10 minute walk from the railway station and just at a central bus stop. The hotel has an interesting story, built in 1871 as a communal house for giving food and shelter for the poor. The hotel restaurant has its name from this period. I was well received at the reception, and... More

We arrived late at night but the staff was very friendly and helpful. They prepared a baby bed without any hassle or cost. Food was good and coffee was machine made. Its location beats all the others for its proximity to the city centre. Stayed for 2 nights in the comfort room. It's only €15 more a night and with... More

*The location is perfect. A few minutes away from the main squares of Groningen. Very close by is a supermarket if you need to do some shopping. *Staff is friendly indeed. I left something in my room, called the next day, and two days later the item arrived at my home with the post. Very good service indeed! *The impression... More

We stayed for one night. The parking is expensive. We were charged for both our motorbikes in the courtyard at the rear of the hotel. The staff are all friendly and helpful. The location is excellent being in the centre of the city. The room was clean, reasonably sized and basic. The breakfast was plentiful and good quality. Recommended

Near central station and near the nicest area of Groningen this hotel is definitely worth it. The hotel room was very clean and the breakfast buffet was pretty good. This hotel really exceeded my expectations.

I stayed here for 4 nights while at a conference. If all you want to do is sleep, the hotel is fine. It's clean and the staff is friendly and nice. However, my room was minuscule; there was barely room to walk around the bed. The TV was equally small, the smallest I've ever seen, and it was mounted up... More

The Martini is conveniently located (within walking distance of the train station and the town centre), the restaurant was good and the staff were friendly. The room was basic and the bathroom was small, but I did go for one of the cheaper rooms so perhaps to be expected. It was quite noisy with late night revellers coming back to... More

Martini Hotel is a reasonably good alternative when going to Groningen. The people at the reception are nice and the nearby restaurant is quite OK. The rooms are small and my room needs refurbishing. But compared with the price and the fact that we got accomodation within our limited budget ....well then this was a good alternative!

Situated superbly on 5 minutes walking distance of every hotspot in this village-like city. The hotel hotel welcomes you with a large and cosy 'gelagkamer', being bar, reading room and breakfast area. The opposite restaurant is likewise spacey and very courteous, giving it style and a little grandeur. Rooms are adequate and beds fine. Parking just around corner.
