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?

Museums
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.

Architecture
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.

Children
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
Groningen is surrounded by and connected to water. Take a boat tour and experience the city from another angle.

View
The Martini Tower on the Grote Markt is the city's showpiece. You can also climb the 96.8 metre high tower.

“very recommendable”

We had a warm and very freindly welcome. Following to my wish for a room in the uppermost floor we had a fine room on the fifth floor. We liked ist at once. The breakfast times are a dream for for late risers and we enjoyed the quality of the fodd an d the drinks. The coffe maker had so many choices that we hardlycould decide. The position of the hotel in the city in walking distance from the station is perfect for exploring the city. We would return as soon as possible when time allows it.

“What a lovely comfortable place”

I had driven all day from France. I was tired. Finding a hotel in a new place can be tricky, when it is dark. I drove for some time and eventually found a hotel, but it was full, so they recommended this hotel - a short distance away. I just needed to sleep. There was parking over the road and check-in was easy. The room was quiet, comfortable, well planned, and serene. I loved it. I slept very well and I needed to leave early in the morning. I did not have breakfast. Check-out was also very easy.

“Very Convenient”

This is the second of the three Hampshire hotels in Groningen that I have stayed in. Not as nice as the Plaza but it is in the city which made it really convenient for a quick trip to see a client. Comfy bed and good strong wifi signal. Parking is arranged with the very secure Casino car park opposite. A good value hotel

“never again!!”

As a business traveller who is used to the great service of Radisson, this Hampshire hotel is just a no go. Seemed ok when booking. But in the hotelnit seemed that there isbonly free liwvspeed internet. For high speed internet you have to pay almist 25 EUR a day. Free only lets you connect 1 device. This is a rip off. I will never stay here again. Advice to business teavelers, go to another hotel. I do not want to pay for internet, so I will use kobile internet. What a thieves!!!!
Owner Response of Hampshire City Hotel - Groningen
Dear JXP-Europe, The free internet option allowes you to set up unlimited connections, therefor allowes you to connect all possible devices at the same time, as you please. The free internet option has a speed up to 1Mbps. I am sorry to read that all of this was obviously not clear to you. Providing clear information about the internet use at check in should prevent any misunderstandings in the near future. With kind regards Sjoukje Witkop Hotel Manager

“Small, good value”

Excellent staff, reasonably clean but TINY rooms - about 1/2 the size of the rooms at the other Hampshire Hotel located 2 blocks away. Don't get the two confused... they are different. This hotel has small, dark rooms, and the other has large airy rooms. This one is, of course, cheaper. Our room rate did not include breakfast, and we found the charge to be rather high, so we did not eat breakfast here. There is a sauna that can be booked for a private visit - needs to be booked ahead of time so it can be heated up. One member of our party used it and was pleased with it. Staff were excellent, very pleasant, and happily stored our luggage when we arrived early, and again when we checked out and wanted to go for lunch without the luggage.
