City Groningen is the ideal base for a weekend exploring Groningen and its surroundings. It is located close to the central station, so easily accessible with all the city's hotspots nearby. You can hire a bicycle at the hotel and explore the city. Cycle through the centre with its historic warehouses, courtyards and buildings, past the Martini Tower towards the Grote Markt and see Groningen at its best. The Groninger Museum is an absolute must. The museum has a wonderful collection of its own and also hosts special touring exhibitions. The building is an artwork on it's own.
Small dark rooms, poor breakfast
My 'superior' room was small, poorly lit and did not have proper windows (a small window at feet level and a small one by the ceiling!) The bed was comfortable although I was provided with a better pillow. The breakfast was awful.
Positiv: good central location, comfortable beds and spacious good shower; Negativ: tiny windows, room im basement with lot of noise from reception and bar, parking is around 5 min walk away and with 18€ not cheap, sauna might exist but you need to call before to use - for day of arrival not an option
Friday evening in Groningen
I can recommend the place. Room ambiance a bit dark, with low power lights and small windows. But otherwise very good. Large bathroom, spacy room, very good bed, armchair, possibility to make an espresso in the room. I'll use it again, definitely.
