Very nice situated in the center of Groningen near the shops. Friendly and helpful staff who offers a drink in a nice Bar "de sigaar" nearby. Everything is in walking distance of this apartment, would go back also for a longer stay.

I travel to work in NL and stay at Miss Blanche on a regular basis. The mini apartments are really great and are centrally located in town. You just need to leave the apartments and you are surrounded by shops and restaurants. There is a supermarket about 2 mins walk way that you can stock up on. The train station is a 15 mins walk.

The rooms are tastefully decorated with a modern decor, with a kitchen with microwave/oven, dishwasher (free dishwasher tablets for a few nights), fridge freezer, coffee making machine (Miss Blanche provide free coffee capsules). The shower room is sleek and modern, with a choice of rainfall or power shower head (no baths in the rooms i've stayed in but this suits me just fine). Some of the apartments have miele washing machines/dryer, everything in the rooms are high end and the quality is great. They have really soft comfortable beds, apartments have always been spotlessly clean on arrival. The staff have always been happy to help and friendly. If you have mobility issues then the staircases to the apartments might be a problem for you, in some of the buildings the stairs are very steep, but there is hand railing in place. Another nice touch is that they give guests one free alcohol drink voucher to their restaurant.

The ONLY downfall... no cold/cool air conditioning in the rooms. When the weather is hot and there is no flow of air, the room i stayed in became really unpleasant... 25-29 C (i'm assuming the thermo in the room was telling me the correct temp), it certainly felt that hot. It dropped at night time to a more bearable temp. Keeping the shutters closed all day did nothing to keep the room cool. They do provide room fans but this only circulates warm air. If there was air con this place would be absolutely perfect. Despite the lack of air con i would stay here again, it's the best place to stay in Groningen.

Miss Blanche is an absolute terrific place to stay. From the extremely helpful and friendly staff to the beautiful design of the rooms as well as to the perfect location for a city trip to Groningen we enjoyed every minute of our stay. Would come back anytime also for a longer stay.

I was looking for a nice place to stay near everything and I found Madame Blanche. WOW ! As I was receiving guest, they've made a selection of restaurants in town and managed the booking!

Nice, very clean, well located, breakfast at the cafe next block was great. Perfect!

Highly recommended. We reserved 2 rooms and were offered an upgrade on 1 of the rooms to a top-floor, canal-facing apartment with a large terrace that was drenched in sun from morning through to evening...marvelous. Each apartment was fully stocked and tastefully decorated. The bed was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. Private parking is available, although a bit tricky to find if you're not familiar with the area.

I will never stay anywhere else when I'm in Groningen. Absolute perfection!

Room Tip: Request suite/apartment 1D with top-floor canal views and large, private terrace. You won't want...

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.
