Right in the city centre on Grote Markt. Thought it might be noisy at night, but was pretty quiet. The noise issues were in the early morning when supplies for bar/restaurant were unloaded under my window. No sleep possible after 7am! Room was clean and comfortable.

There is a cosy lounge with leather chairs, chandeliers and booked lined walls,which had a fire each night.A good breakfast selection with both continental and eggs and bacon... More

I stayed at the Hotel de Doelen on my own - I wanted somewhere central, and it couldn't have been more convenient. It is a couple of minutes walk from the airport busstop, and on the edge of the main square. I had a wonderfully quiet room at the back of the hotel, generous for a single with a top-grade... More

I stayed at Hotel de Doelen for just one night together with my boyfriend when we were in Groningen for a wedding. Initially we chose De Doelen for its very central location in the city, right on the Grote Markt and very close to the town hall where we needed to go. The hotel has a lovely atmosphere. We arrived... More

But like many times in Holland, if your room is in an upper floor, you can expect some steep stairs. After taking the elevator to the second floor, steep... More

Groningen is a lively place and the hotel was in the city square with lots of bars outside and heaters to keep away the cold. Although I had a room at the front, it was not too noisy but if you are a light sleeper some earplugs might be a good idea. Good breakfast and nice clean room. Shower lacked... More
