“Good hotel close to city centre”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

Stayed here for three nights. Wanted somewhere close to the station and toward s the southern part of Groningen. The hotel is well placed by the canal basin (plenty of boats to watch) and easy walking distance into the centre where there are plenty of bars and eating places. The room was quite small and warm but we were able to sleep with the windows open without too much external noise. The breakfast was good and was included in the room rate when we booked. The staff were very helpful all the ime, even loaning us a phone charger for the duration of our stay.

Room Tip: We asked for a quiet room and were situated on the back overlooking the town, don't know if this...

The hotel is nice and clean. Staff friendly and give you good service. The hotel is locaded a 2-minute walk from the fine "pedestrian" and there are plenty of good resturants. Hotel is a 3-star standard in Europe, but it is nice, clean and quiet. We will come back. PS, if I want to ask for anything, it would be a "mini bar" refrigerator for my wine;-)

We stayed for the motogp and the hotel met all our needs.

Good location, about 10 min walk to train station.

Room was basic but spacious, comfortable and clean and had great views over the city....although carpets throughout the hotel were stained/dated. Didn't bother paying for breakfast as the room was pricey enough (probably due to the motogp) but we did make good use of the drinks machine and lounge area which was nice to relax in.

Staff were friendly and helpful.

The hotel was originally build as a (high rise, 7 or 8 stories) office building for the city's social services & medical services office. And that shows; the inside (the stairwell, the corridors, etc.) still look a bit like an (older) office building. Also, an other result of this re-using of the building for a different purpose, is that the hotel does not have a (un)loading area upfront, which makes it cumbersome for unloading suitcases (unless you double park in the street, in front of the main entry, which we didn't want to do for risking of blocking the traffic). For unloading our luggage, we therefore had to briefly park our car just around the corner, at the Winschoterkade, at the side of the building, where we got a parking fine (in the amount of 60 euro) within the short time when we were waiting at the check-in desk and waiting to receive driving directions to the hotel's parking garage. We were not amused. So a warning for everybody: buy a parking ticket (for 15 minutes or so) in a machine on the street, even if you park your car only very briefly to unload your luggage and check-in!! It turned out that the hotel's garage was full anyway, but a few minutes away there was a large public parking garage (by Q-park). The hotel rooms seem to be quite small, but we were lucky that we had booked a "comfort room" which is a lot bigger (room nr. 607), although a bit sparsely furnished. The aircon worked fine (it was a hot summer night), the beds were fine (we had ordered twin beds), and the bathroom was fine (including a bathtub). The location is good, at easy walking distance to the city's main market square (Grote Markt) and close to a lot of restaurants etc.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a high floor (for a nice view over the city), and ask for a comfort room (which is...

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.
