Discover the many faces of Groningen and its surroundings.

Hampshire City Hotel – 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 in itself. It was designed by several well-known architects, including Allessandro Mendini.

There is also lots to see outside the city. You could go to Pieterburen, for example, to visit the seal nursery, or spend an afternoon walking on the tidal marshes. Back at the Hampshire City Hotel – Groningen, it's time to relax in the sauna followed by a lovely meal in one of the local restaurants.

The bicycle city of the Netherlands.

The city of Groningen has won numerous awards. Such as ‘Best City Centre’ and ‘Bicycle City of the Netherlands’. You can experience the latter at Hampshire City Hotel – Groningen by hiring a solid Johnny Loco bicycle and going exploring. Visit the historic buildings and pretty courtyards in the centre of Groningen or cycle into the lively night life on the Grote Markt and Poelestraat. What other activities are there?

A really fun museum is the Dutch Comics Museum (Nederlands Stripmuseum). Here you will meet comic book heroes like Suske en Wiske, Olivier B. Bommel and Jan, Jans en de kinderen The Noordelijk Scheepvaartmuseum is not only a wonderful building to look at, it also has an interesting collection about the history of shipping in the northern provinces of the Netherlands. At the Groninger Museum, the Museum Shop and Mendini Restaurant are worth a visit in their own right.

The city has a lot of wonderful architecture. The central station or Hoofdstation, for example, was designed by Isaac Gosschalk in 1896 In the centre, the Goudkantoor, a renaissance building dating from 1635, and the many historic warehouses on the Noorderhaven are also worth a visit. Examples of modern architecture in the city include the famous Gasunie building and the urinal by Rem Koolhaas.

Not far from the city is the village of Pieterburen. This is home to the world famous seal nursery founded by Lenie 't Hart who takes care of ill seals. The visitor centre has an exhibition and a film. And if you're in Pieterburen anyway, why not take the family walking on the tidal marshes?

By water

“last minute booking, but well worth it!”

I arrived in Holland, and due to changes whilst in the air, ended up not knowing where I was staying in Groningen, but I was able to find a vacancy at this hotel. The welcome when I got to the hotel was fantastic, and although it was last minute everything was easy, and Lucas who was on reception at the time couldn't have helped more. The hotel rooms are great, comfortable beds, good bathroom facilities, and fortheosecwarm nights air con. All in all a great stay in a really good hotel.

“Weeken city trip”

The hotel is perfectly located, just a few minute walk to the center. Nice, silent and cleam rooms and friendly staff. Private car park available in walking distance. The only thing i would likte to mention is that the breakfast is overpriced (low value for money)

Friends getaway

This hotel is convienently situated in the centre of Groningen. Everything, from begin to end, I liked about this hotel. Friendly staff, nice beds, good breakfast (until 11.30 in the weekend!) and the bathroom had a bath tub! The location is perfect, as it is close to restaurants, shopping centre, bars etc. I would definitely recommend staying here.

“Tidy but basic”

Stayed here for 3 nights . Staff very friendly , room a bit basic and small ( Twin ) but clean and tidy . Location is good with all the nightlife a few minutes away . About a 10 minute walk to the train station . Not cheap for what it was but then it was the Motogp weekend so that might reflect the price . Bit basic and character less but did the job
