The hotel is nice and clean. Staff friendly and give you good service. The hotel is locaded a 2-minute walk from the fine "pedestrian" and there are plenty of good resturants. Hotel is a 3-star standard in Europe, but it is nice, clean and quiet. We will come back. PS, if I want to ask for anything, it would be... More

We stayed for the motogp and the hotel met all our needs. Good location, about 10 min walk to train station. Room was basic but spacious, comfortable and clean and had great views over the city....although carpets throughout the hotel were stained/dated. Didn't bother paying for breakfast as the room was pricey enough (probably due to the motogp) but we... More

The hotel was originally build as a (high rise, 7 or 8 stories) office building for the city's social services & medical services office. And that shows; the inside (the stairwell, the corridors, etc.) still look a bit like an (older) office building. Also, an other result of this re-using of the building for a different purpose, is that the... More

I have stayed here a few times for business and the car parking, wifi and location are very convenient. The rooms are basic and the breakfast is adequate. For value for money it is a good hotel. I found the walls a bit thin, the neighbour's television was clearly audible. Happily he or she slept early. Car parking is onsite... More

We stayed in the apartment across the street that is owned by the hotel. It is spacious and clean. The downfall is that there is no housekeeping so you have to arrange to take your own trash out and there are no replacement towels. We stayed for a week and managed okay but you don't get hotel service at all.... More

Stayed here for one night with group of friends. Hotel staffs were very friendly, all 6 of us got the rooms at the same level, level 5. Martini Tower is sharply on our right side. Location is good, closed to shopping area, it's within walking distance. It was very hot inside the room when we checked in. The full glory... More

Excellent value for money well located serves both the business and leisure traveller I will not stay anywhere else in Groningen! Also good for wedding parties. The all night access to tea and coffee is something that means a lot to me. While I have not tried it, the breakfast offering looks weak and I have not been tempted on... More

We visited Groningen for a weekend. We picked this hotel to stay because it is a 5 minute walk from central station and a 5 minute walk to the city centre. The lobby looks nice and modern, reception was friendly but the room was a bit disappointing. Small room, small tv, small beds, no bath. Also an air freshener was... More
