Hotel impression

Singers Ilse de Lange, Guus Meeuwis and the Swedish singer Maria Mena have all spent the night at City Groningen on occasion. The barman at Hampshire Hotel – City Groningen is the longest serving member of hotel staff, so he’s got all the stories about famous guests and enthusiastic tourists who’ve been to Groningen for a city break. The modern hotel in a quiet location in the centre of Groningen is a good starting point for business guests and those who’d like to eat well, do some shopping or view the sights. Rent a bicycle from the hotel and follow the marked cycle route along historical warehouses, the Groninger Museum, courtyards or through the surrounding countryside. Groningen is a lovely, multifaceted city to visit for a weekend break.

"Overnight stay"
Accommodation was average, although clean and staff were friendly. Parking garage was not on site although only a few minutes by foot, website doesn't mention this as far as I could see. Was fairly central and easily reachable by foot to the main square in town.

"Good stop over hotel in city"
The hotel is fairly close to the airport taking around 15 minutes and costs approximately 70Dkk. The hotel itself is central, has plenty of bars and restaurants nearby and a casino opposite. The hotel is ok, not 4 or 5 star, the standard rooms are fairly basic but comfortable and with everything you'd need for a 1/2 night stay. I was on a business trip so I'd recommend it for location and cost consciousness.

"Visit"
This is an excellent hotel, located just off the city centre, convenient for bus and train stations. Accommodation is well maintained, good housekeeping. A buffet breakfast offers a wide range of items and drinks. A small bar is available with pleasant setting area. Good value for money.

"A really very nice experience"
The hotel has a very good location - you can go by foot from the railway station and the city center is also at a walking distance. The rooms are perfectly clean and nice (one complaint: the pillows - uncomfortable for the backbone...). The breakfast is great, much more than you expect from a 3-star hotel. What makes the hotel really special is the kindness of its staff - always ready to assist and help the guests.

"Look no further!"
It's such a great place, with a friendly staff and a really nice ambience. And it's close to everything! We were traveling with our infant and the staff prepared a really nice crib with a cute set of baby linen. Way to go! We will stay there again!

Groningen

Museums

The Groninger Museum is a must see, but the Museum Shop and the Mendini Restaurant are worth visiting in their own right. The Nederlands Stripmuseum (Dutch Comics Museum) is an entertaining, lively museum. See Dutch cartoon figures as well as internationally famous figures. Not only is the Noordelijk Scheepvaartmuseum (Northern Maritime Museum) an exquisite building, but it also has a very interesting collection of objects depicting Northern Dutch maritime history.

 

Architecture

There is a lot of exceptional architecture in Groningen. The Central Station (also known as Hoofdstation, main station) was designed by Isaac Gosschalk in 1896. The ceiling is made of a very special kind of papier mâché. The Goudkantoor (Gold Office) in the city centre, a Renaissance building dating from 1635, and the many historical warehouses along the Noorderhaven are certainly worth seeing. As for modern architecture, you will find the well-known Gasunie building in the city and also the urinal designed by Rem Koolhaas.
