This hotel is convienently situated in the centre of Groningen. Everything, from begin to end, I liked about this hotel. Friendly staff, nice beds, good breakfast (until 11.30 in the weekend!) and the bathroom had a bath tub! The location is perfect, as it is close to restaurants, shopping centre, bars etc. I would definitely recommend staying here.

The hotel is located in a very quit area but only ten minutes walking distance to the city center. It is very confortable, and the rooms are not small. I appreciated the sympathy of the personel and the breakfast.

only an average cost/performance ratio for a hotel which is in some areas already worn out / renovation due. A rate below 100 EUR per room would lead to a better rating. Unreasonably high car park rate of 22.50 EUR. Reception faced some minor problems to sort out a booking of two rooms for three persons.

The hotel is in an excellent location in the town centre and for a decent price. The lobby is modernly decorated and generally comfortable, with pleasant staff. The restaurant/bar area was a bit boring. The room was outdated and quite dirty. There were a few fingernail clippings on the floor near the bed and stains on the carpet and walls.... More
