I have stayed here 5 times over the last year. Put bluntly: the price on the NH website is too high, but twice I had a voucher for 50% discount, and booking.com offers cheaper prices.
The location is perfect, in the very city centre and close to many of the university buildings, but nonetheless no problems of noise from outside. Colleagues often go the University guest house (where I also have been twice), but if you can get a fair price, you should absolutely prefer Hotel de Ville above the University guesthouse.
Do not expect a splashy hotel, which would not fit in Groningen anyway. But everything is OK to pleasant. I had a different room each time; sizes differ. Rooms are clean, and those at the back are very quiet. One small point of complaint: For some reason the NH hoteles (I had the same experience in Amsterdam) do not daily refill the minibars. Also, the rooms only have one type of glass, so that one must drink beer from the bottle or out of a large wineglass.
The breakfast does not have a multitude of choices, but a broad choice of healthy foods. Personnel is attentive and friendly, without overdoing it. Everything typically Groningen.
