“Comfort and style combined with affordability”
Reviewed October 31, 2011

Stayed in the hotel in late October for two nights. As we got a special discount deal and it was out of the tourist season it was excellent value for money! The hotel is very modern, our room was very spacious and comfortable. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is a buffet breakfast and there was a huge choice for everyone's taste. It's a perfect hotel for both business and leisure.
Location wise the hotel is about 15-20 min walk from the train station and 25-30min walk from Grotte Markt and the city centre. It's a very pleasant and enjoyable walk on a nice sunny day but it is a little bit too far if it's raining or it's windy. Also, as the hotel is located by the exit of a highway, some of the rooms are quite noisy at night so ear plugs are essential for a good night sleep.

Room Tip: Rooms at top two floors and at the very back of the hotel facing away from the main road / highway a...

Discount site HotelSpecial.nl booked a room for us for 3 days, saving us 50%.
Which meant more than extra value for money.
Excellent hotel, about 1,5 miles from the lively centre of Groningen.
Friendly staff. Perfect bed. Design bathroom - a bit small - but comfortable.
A extensive breakfast you won' t forget and which will get you through the day.
Free parking, free bicycles to ride to the centre.

The hotel is located at the exit of the highway, in any room you're staying in you'll get a view of the highway and...the noise that is unbearable because the isolation is not well done. Location is not so appropriate : there's nothing around the hotel (you need a car to get in the city centre).
On the other hand, the hotel is freshly renewed and the room are comfortable and decorated in a modern style (although I found the bathroom quite small).
wifi is free in the room and in the lobby.
Hotel staff is efficient and polite.

The hotel is right next to the Martiniplaza conference center and is a perfect place to stay for conferences there. It is also convenient to the ring road around the city. The rooms are clean and modern, the staff quite helpful, and the breakfasts good in quantity, quality, and variety. The staff told us how to catch the number 6 bus to the train station and the center of town. But to see the city, a more central location would be recommended.

Room Tip: Higher floors might have a better view.

I booked a special offer - a double room (1 double bed) for the price of a single. I asked for a quiet room on the opposite side to the motorway. It was very quiet and well equipped. Apparently all the room numbers ending in 9 are considered quiet, so request one of these if you fancy a quiet night! Breakfast choice was good. The dinner was plentiful and reasonably priced (23-30 euros for 2 couses and a drink). No complaints. It´s a 20 min walk to the rail station/citycentre.

Nice hotel & good value - but relatively small rooms. Easy access from the motorway. Free parking in front of the hotel. Good selection of food for breakfast. Free wireless internet worked fine with code from reception.
