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.

“Nice city hotel ”

Pleasant city hotel , clean , comfy , nice breakfast but nothing fancy . Decor looks old as you get past reception but don't let that put you off . No reason why I wouldn't go again . Some of the hotel room views were poor ie staircases and brick wall , so ask for a room with a view . Good Casino opposite and Irish bar just50 meters up the road .

“Average”

Stayed for 4 nights midweek. Good location in the city centre, good walking distance to everything really, bars, restaurants and even the great toy shop, Asbran, just over the road. The hotel was ok, very friendly staff and breakfast was fine. The standard room I had was very basic and squished into a corner. The flooring is some kind of tiling which means you have to dust your feet off before getting into bed (very strange). The only plugpoint which was accessible was down in the far corner of the room at the desk, so charging a phone overnight on the sidetable was impossible. I had to unplug the tv high up on the wall to be able to use the iron I borrowed. Pillows were horrible. Two massive things resembling thick sofa cushions. All 5 in my group had the same horrible pillows. Bed was comfy but the drunks leaving the casino over the road every night were annoying every night. Tea and coffee machines in the hallway were ok to use. The fitness room is a bike and treadmill. But I loved the bike. Sauna room seemed to be working but was always locked and I didnt bother to ask.

“Very comfortable nights at the Hampshire city hotel”

I was at the Hampshire city hotel for two nights and the welcome at my arrival was excellent. During my stay I had good interaction and help with the hosts. My room was comfortable, expect the pillow that was too big :) I like to sleep on my belly.

“nice stay”

Simply good. Not excellent, but good. The system tells me ot fill up unto 200 "characters", which takes my time. Time I'd rather like to spend on planning my next stay, maybe in a Hampshire Hotel. Maybe.
