FAQs about hotels in Groningen

Grab a Bike in Groningen

Tucked away near the German border in the north-eastern corner of the Netherlands, Groningen uses its isolated position to forge its own distinct character. The young student population attending the 17th-century University of Groningen complements the historic architecture and famous Dutch canals.

The skyline is dominated by the magnificent Martinitoren (Martini Tower) that overlooks the Grote Markt (Main Square). Many buildings showcase Groningen’s merchant history and the centre features regular food markets such as the Vismarkt and Grote Markt.

Groninger Museum has one of the finest modern art exhibitions in Northern Europe and Oosterpoort plays host to cultural events from around the world. Students play a role in defining modern Groningen, giving this city a reputation for a vibrant nightlife.

Booking.com has a selection of hotels and apartments within its compact city centre. Grab a bike and discover this delightful and dynamic city for yourself.

    Groningen is a beautiful city , I would prefer it to Amsterdam . It is a nice size, there's loads to see and do. The Groninger Museum always has terrific exhibitions and the building itself is amazing. The Ship Museum is excellent also . There is a lovely ambience with many cosy cafes and bars and great eateries such as the Drei Gezusters. We had great takeaway food at the Vis Markt , the Kibbeling is very tasty and the portions everywhere are generous. As it is a University city , there is a lively student atmosphere, We walked everywhere as everything is accessible. It is a wonderful spot for a city break.

    We liked this time a lot because of the boat tour through the town and our visit to Groninger museum with the Rolling Stones exhibition. We had diner at the Branderij and at Eetcafe de Slingerij. Both good quality for a fine price and kind staff.

    Groningen is a lovely univeristy town easily reached by train. Taking a walk through the center to visit the almshouses (there is a good guidebook for that) and their gardens was a pleasant way to get to know the city. A big plus is that there is no mass tourism as in Amsterdam, mostly day trippers from the area or just across the river from Germany.

    I would definitely recommend Groningen as a place to visit.

    I would definitely recommend Groningen as a place to visit. It is a little gem. It’s easily reached from Schipol airport by a direct train that takes just over 2 hours. I only discovered it as I found Dutch family that live here. Definitely recommend as a change from Amsterdam. The town has plenty of shops and restaurants, museums and a canal. Everything is accessible by foot or local buses. Just be aware of the cyclists.

    Groningen is a very lovely smaller town with a nice old town surrounded by water canals. In the city I spent most of my time at a conference at the university, whose campus itself is very interesting and I had the opportunity to see the particle accelerator there as part of the excursion - certainly very interesting for those interested in (bio)physics and (radio)medicine. In my free time I walked through the old town and around the canals, which was very nice and romantic. The same could be said of the walking path from the city to the university area, which led through beautiful, almost wild countryside along horse paddocks, one arm of the river, among meadows, etc. The town also offers great gourmet experiences. I was only able to spend a few days in the city, so unfortunately I didn't have a chance to explore the surrounding area.

    Most everyone we encountered in the Netherlands spoke English. However, in Groningen, we were met with outright hostility and a dismissive hand wave when we stated we didn't speak Dutch. We did not find the majority of the people friendly.

    The apartment is situated just outside the city centre, but this can easily be reached on foot in less than 10 minutes. Car-park is either in front or at the back of the apartment, which is convenient. With its 45m2 it is well-sized, especially for 2 people. All the spaces, living room, bedroom and bathroom are bigger than your average hotel room for sure, which is nice. The small kitchen is equipped with a dishwasher, microwave and a small refrigerator. Basically, all you need for a short to mid-long stay.

    The Lobby was amazing and available to hang out by the fire or have some complimentary coffee or tea. The room (including the beautiful paintings of famous opera houses around the world) was nice. Bathroom was incredibly beautiful. In addition to having the most central location in Groningen anyone can think of, the staff and service could not have been nicer! Having lived in Groningen for years myself, I can attest that you will have the most authentic Groningen-like experience staying at this hotel.

    A very nice place to stay while in Groningen- great location by the lake, so you have beautiful views and peacefulness. Can't walk to the city center though - it's a bit far, but there is a bus stop nearby. You can also rent a bike at the hotel (or a boat!). Spacious free parking just at the front. Friendly staff. Delicious breakfast. Clean and comfortable rooms although might give you a gloomy impression at first due to dark interior design. Very quiet. Worth recommending! :)

    Brand new hotel in the middle of the city. The hotel is very contemporary and nicely decorated. The staff at front desk, restaurant and bakery are very hospitable. The first morning we missed breakfast so ordered some (freshly made) sandwiches at the bakery. In the evening we had a superb meal with Dutch ingredients/recipes with a modern twist. We will surely book this hotel for our next stay in Groningen.

    Very good hostel double room that had air con and a TV. Although small the ensuite shower/toilet was very good. Hostel included other communal areas and is part of the large Martini Hotel. Was allowed to bring my bike into the room which was a great help. The location was superb in the centre of Groningen. You can also have a reasonably priced breakfast at the Hotel.

    The hotel is very conveniently located close to the city centre. Bus and train stations are within walking distance, as are supermarkets. The kitchen facilities are more than adequate. We had to modify our reservations a number of times during our stay. We found the staff extremely helpful and they went out of their way to accommodate our requirements.

    Cute hotel, close to the city centre (less than 5 minutes by foot), right next to a supermarket. It's quiet. The room was a bit small but perfectly fine for one person. Comfy bed, nice shower. Good breakfast buffet (bit expensive at 15€). Super friendly and helpful staff. Would come here again.
