Discover the many faces of Groningen and its surroundings.

Hampshire Hotel - 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 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 Hotel - City 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 Hotel - City 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
Groningen is surrounded by and connected to water. Take a boat tour and experience the city from another angle.

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

“Comfy Hotel”

We have stayed in this hotel previously, about 5 years ago. That was such a quick trip, I couldn't remember anything much! This time, we stayed 2 nights and I got to form a (good) impression. The staff was pleasant and professional. The room was good sized, and very comfortable. The bed was really wonderful - I slept so well! The duvet/comforter were nice, but I did find it odd that there was no sheet. It was cool out though, so a heavy comforter was actually a good thing. The shower had fairly low water pressure, but the bath tub was wonderful. No washcloths, as is typical of a Europe hotel. No in room fridge or coffee, but they had a magnificent coffee/espresso machine downstairs available gratis 24/7! For it's price point, I found this hotel to be excellent and would definately stay again.

“Nice hotel”

The hotel is located in the center. Near to the casino Holland (free admission for guests). There is a nice bar with a gasfired furnace, friendly bartender. Rooms are ok, but ordinary. Will definitely stay there again.

“Good for quick business stay”

Only stayed for two nights, didn't want a clean-up, so I hung my "do not distrurbe" sign outside. Came back from a full day and was pleasantly surprised, as they had left spare linen for me in a laundry bag outside... just in case I had forgotten to remove the sign and wanted fresh towels etc anyway. Excellent! Breakfast service very friendly and selection quite good.
