stayed here during a recent event in Groningen. The hotel is about 15/20 minute cab journey into the centre of Groningen and seems to be on a slip road to one of the main roads into Groningen. Its standard fare 3 star hotel. Everything is clean and perfectly good for an overnight business trip. I wouldnt recommend it if you... More

This hotel is simply great value for money. Ignore any bad comments its actual merits out way them. Slightly outside of town but this hotel is more for people travelling thru or on business rather than taking a holiday here. Plenty of free parking. Nice clean comfortable room. Excellent food in the restaurant and really nice friendly helpful staff

This hotel is fine, very standard for this kind of brand. The location is far from the city centre, however can be convenient if you are in your way or in a business travel. The best I have found the bed, I rested perfectly. The worst: the service. It seems that every single teen who is working in the hotel... More

Stayed for one night with a group of 4 friends. Arrived late, which wasn't a problem, and left pretty early. We got two rooms close to each other. It is close to the highway which is great, and the price is also a plus. Wouldn't be that great if you intend to actually visit Groningen though, as it is a... More

But must say all my fears were put to rest. Its a nice decent place. The staff were quite friendly and helpful. Rooms... More

A small Chain Hotel in an industrial area (was very quiet, but stayed at a weekend). Great value - had a special last minute deal. Still - only if you have a car. Far away from the city center or anything else , for that matter. Clean , comfortable room. No double bedroom (!) at all, we were told.

Cleanness fine, no hair-dryer except in the VIP rooms, gloomy neighbourhood, but easily reachable from the highway. Then... When we woke up in the morning, the room was cold, no hot water also. I tried to call the reception, but no one answered. After 15 minutes of unsuccessful attempts, I had to personally go into the lobby: the receptionist apologized,... More

For me it was exciting going back to Groningen after few years. The hotel was very convenient not too far from the city. The only hitch was the transport which was every hour or so. However because of the efficiency within the system the bus would come on time as per the time table at the stop. The hotel was... More

If you need a good budget hotel in Groningen, and you do not care that it is not within walking distance from the city centre, this may be a good choice. The rates are very reasonable. The hotel has a free parking space and within ten minutes or so you can reach the city centre by car. The hotel has... More
