We stayed at Miss Blanche already the second time and we really love the rooms, the outstanding friendliness of the staff and of course the fantastic location. First time my wife and I stayed there we took a superior suite with a roof terace, the interior and uniqueness of the suite have been outstanding and we decided to go back when we come to Groningen again. This time we went with friends and we decided to take an executive Appartement for 6 person, as our friends have been travelling with their daughter. Again, the interior and the location have been very good, but the appartement has some shortcomings need to be mentioned, as it is not inexpensive and therefore you need to make up your mind if you can live with it. When I booked the appartement I was under the impression we will get the appartement with 3 bedrooms and not the one with 2 bedrooms and a sofa bed in the living room (but could have been an oversight from my side), as it was not very convenient to prepare the bed every night when we came back. Further, and this was the biggest issue we had, there is only one bathroom and this is an open ensuite bathroom in one of the bedrooms. So this makes the appartement, best case, only usable for families, as everybody has to use this bathroom if you wnat to take a shower or a bath and you have to go thru this bedroom and are visible the entire time you are in it (ther is no wall or door seperating the bedroom and bathroom). There is also a toilet in there, but the is also a seperate one in the appartement. The next problem we had has been no windows can be opened in the bedrooms (an even bigger problem in the one with the ensuite bathroom) and it gets very sticky during the night. A smaller issue is the missing TV in the second bedroom as I believe a luxury appartement witht this price should have a TV in every bedroom.
Just to clarify, we zhad again a fantastic time and the friend we where travelling with are very good friends of ours, so we could arrange us with the weird bathroom set-up, but I can not recommend this appartement if you are travelling together and are not very, very close to each other.
Other than that the short trip was excellent again and the view from the appartement is super and also the kitchen, living and dinning room arrangement is very nice.
We would rather go for a suite again when we come back next time, as the suite concept did not really convince us with the shortcomings explained above.
