Reviewed 4 June 2014

I have stayed here a few times for business and the car parking, wifi and location are very convenient. The rooms are basic and the breakfast is adequate. For value for money it is a good hotel. I found the walls a bit thin, the neighbour's television was clearly audible. Happily he or she slept early.

Car parking is onsite and below the hotel. 10 minute walk to the Grote Markt. The hotel offers bicycles for a small fee which was a handy way to the centre and to the office each day.

There is no restaurant or bar in the evenings...plenty of alternatives close by.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the canal seem to be quieter

We stayed in the apartment across the street that is owned by the hotel. It is spacious and clean. The downfall is that there is no housekeeping so you have to arrange to take your own trash out and there are no replacement towels. We stayed for a week and managed okay but you don't get hotel service at all. It's nice to have your own space but have to buy basic things for the apartment like dish-washing liquid and milk and other basics. A heads up that these services aren't included would be nice but worth staying for a group or family.

Good space but narrow steps if you are taking luggage upstairs but that is to be expected of Dutch accommodation.

Stayed here for one night with group of friends.

Hotel staffs were very friendly, all 6 of us got the rooms at the same level, level 5. Martini Tower is sharply on our right side. Location is good, closed to shopping area, it's within walking distance. It was very hot inside the room when we checked in. The full glory of sun shined directly to the room, we were obliged to open the window to let some fresh air in and to lower the temp. in the room.

Room is small, we were left with little space to walk around in the room. Room is not equipped with water cooker but we had a limitless access to the coffee machine in the dining area, for a or more good cups of coffee/tea/warm chocolate milk. Room is equipped with telephone, television and hairdryer. Bed was ok, a sturdy bed.

Bathroom is very simple, with shower only. Shower head needs to be urgently replaced, very poor amount of water came out from it, leaving me stepping out from the shower with some residue of shampoo sticking on my scalp still.

Breakfast is not bad, many choices, scramble eggs was too dry though.

It's a very basic hotel but everything is kept tidy and clean.

Excellent value for money well located serves both the business and leisure traveller I will not stay anywhere else in Groningen!

Also good for wedding parties. The all night access to tea and coffee is something that means a lot to me. While I have not tried it, the breakfast offering looks weak and I have not been tempted on any of my half a dozen or more visits

Stayed 1 night with 13 year old son to go to gig at Oosterpoort in Groningen.
Staff very friendly
Room very nice
Nice view from room on 6th floor
10 mins walk from rail station
10 mins from main market and shopping area
accidently booked a double instead of a twin room. Staff sorted this even though hotel was fully booked
Room was very clean and comfortable. Ensuite was fine
Would stay again if in town.

We visited Groningen for a weekend. We picked this hotel to stay because it is a 5 minute walk from central station and a 5 minute walk to the city centre. The lobby looks nice and modern, reception was friendly but the room was a bit disappointing. Small room, small tv, small beds, no bath. Also an air freshener was missing in the bath room. There is free wifi. We had booked here also because it said that we could checkout at 5 PM on Sunday but when we got there they told us that we had to pay 20 euros extra for this.

Overall it was a very average hotel and I'm not sure if it worth 4 stars. The location is perfect though!

Stayed: October 2013, travelled as a couple
