Hotel in the middle of Groningen very close to the famous 'drie gezusters' (next door actually). Old building with a lot of character. Rooms were ok and staff very friendly and helpful. Shame we couldn't stay longer.

This hotel is located in a very central position right on one side of the main city square in Groningen - Grote Markt. During our visit in early Sept the weather was still warm enough for the hundreds of cane chairs and tables outside the hotel to be occupied by drinkers and diners from about 11.30am onwards. The interior of...

The hotel is situated in the city center. The service is very pleasant and hospitable (both on the telephone and in person). It is quite comfortable and although the rooms are a little old fashioned (yet very comfortable), the bathrooms are very big and beautifully renovated. On the downside I would mention the somewhat steep stairs that welcome you at...

I stayed in one of the suites with a sauna to finish up a business trip with some relaxation and sightseeing. Despite the fact that it was KEI week, I heard nothing at night. The hotel is very conveniently located for all the city sights and is also a very easy walk to the train station. The sauna and the...

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.

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...

“Groningen market is very lively so if you want a quiet room, rather ask not for the front one. WiFi is very good, bad too soft.”
