I am a touring musician so I like my hotels cheap, clean, and convenient. I don't care about workout rooms or pools or how new it is, I just want to relax when I'm in my room! This hotel is within walking distance from the city centre and had underground parking for an additional €15. Parking is important to me as when on tour I am driving from city to city. My room on the 6th floor was spacious and appeared recently refurbished. The view from my room window and from the hallway outside the door was wonerful. Bed comfort was very good, cleanliness in the room and in public areas were perfect. Free coffee and tea (and more importantly, latte and cappuccino!) is available on the ground floor througout the day. The staff was friendly and helpful at all times...(1) when I had trouble making a phone call from both my room and my mobile phone, the girl behind the desk came out to help me from the hotel lobby phone. (2) We didn't want the entire breakfast, so one of the staff spoke to the manager and we were each given a croissant with jam for no charge with our coffee. Internet was available for free and worked better on my phone than on my laptop, not sure why. Wi-fi in the lobby had no problems. Please note that there is limited space in the parking garage and you must leave your keys with the hotel desk. As a driver raised in America, I found the small spaces intimidating but having lived in the UK for the past year I am familiar with the impossibly small spaces you sometimes have to maneuver your car into...I managed it in my slightly-smaller-than-average size Toyota sports car but if you are driving an SUV and are from America, you might find it challenging to park. Given the size and quality of the room as well as the central location, you get a lot for the money. The Hampshire City Hotel was nearer the venue we were playing at, but more expensive...I might stay there but I will likely return to this hotel when we come back next year to Groningen...either way, I would definitely recommend the Hampshire chain of hotels as my first choice.
