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?

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.

“Excellent stay!”

A great little hotel in the city centre. The staff are friendly and professional and nothing is too much trouble. Great breakfast, ate lunch and dinner out so cannot comment further but based on breakfast I'm sure other meals would be good. My room, on 3rd floor, facing main road was warm & comfortable. I'd happily stay here again.

“Much value for money”

Although I did not see much more than breakfast and bed I can only recommend this hotel. Everything was clean and proper, employees were friendly and helpful, Wifi worked well (although an encrypted connection would have been slightly better). The location is excellent, as all the inner city is easily reached within a couple of minutes.

“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.

“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.

“cost/performance ratio”

only an average cost/performance ratio for a hotel which is in some areas already worn out / renovation due. A rate below 100 EUR per room would lead to a better rating. Unreasonably high car park rate of 22.50 EUR. Reception faced some minor problems to sort out a booking of two rooms for three persons.
Owner Response of Hampshire Hotel - City Groningen
Dear Sir, I'm very sorry to hear that your expectation didn't match the reality. Thanks a lot for writing this review. With your input we can improve ourselves. We do realize that the parking charges in Groningen are relatively high. Therefor we do offer discounted parking (50 % of the regular rate). Groningen also offers the possibility to park at the edge of the city.

“Good hotel at great location”

This hotel was satisfactory and for another business trip I would pick it again.I don't think it was "cousy" enough for a private trip, but that is my personal opinion. A big plus was that you can rent a bike from the hotel! Wifi also worked fine.

“modern building without ambiance”

Very small room, I was alone, never seen such a small room for 74 euros. even de hotels formule 1/etap in France where You pay 28-34€ have nicer rooms, but the employes where helpfull. kleine kamer, behulpzaam personeel, gebouw zonder sfeer en dat in de binnenstad van Groningen. Ligging is goed.

“prima zaken hotel”

zeer ruime kamers, en badkamers. Jammer alleen geen goede verlichting bij bureau. Ook de tv's zijn redelijk verouderd en klein. personeel zeer vriendelijk en behulpzaam bij problemen. ontbijt zou wat beter kunnen met bv gebakken eieren ipv alleen scrambled en gekookt. iet meer variatie en presentatie van vlees en kaas zou ook de prijs voor het ontbijt (€15) rechtvaardigen.

“9,5”

alles perfect, alleen functioneerde de eucalyptus-toevoer niet optimaal in het Turks stoombad; receptie wist niet of dit een technisch probleem was of dat gewoon de voorraad op was. Een aanbeveling voor citytrips!

“Prettig hotel met aardige mensen”

Gevraagd om een rustige kamer, die we ook kregen; met kingsize bed! Goed geslapen. Zeer vriendelijk en behulpzaam personeel. Bij het (uitgebreide)ontbijt was er geen strooibaar zoetstof, maar dat wilden ze voor de volgende dag graag gaan kopen. Helaas bleven we maar een nacht. Geen gebreken geconstateerd. Prima service. Het hotel ligt aan de buitenrand van het centrum, maar alles is goed te lopen. Geparkeerd in P Damsterdiep bijna om de hoek. De parkeergarage van het hotel is daarnaast. Een paar fijne dagen gehad dus.

“Prima hotel op prima plek, met gastvrij personeel”

Fijn hotel. Alles echt prima in orde. Nette, niet te krappe kamers, lekkere bedden. Prima (uitgebreid) ontbijt, gezellige lounge. En zeer gastvrij personeel, gingen heel netjes en uitgebreid op alle vragen in. Ook heel coulant tov bijzondere wensen. Ik gaf mijn baby borstvoeding en het bewaren van de gekolfde melk in hun koelcel vond geen van de personeelsleden lastig. Terwijl ik toch heel wat keren daar aan kwam zetten met een flesje om bij de rest te gieten...

“op zaterdagnacht kan het buiten tot heel laat heel luidruchtig zijn”

Alles was prima in orde, goede service, mooie kamer, goed matras, thee en koffie op de gang, ontbijt goed, heerlijk gegeten via een regeling met een naburig restaurant Moro, gunstige uitrijkaart. Maar slapen is helaas niet gelukt door de geluidsoverlast van buiten. Dat vind ik toch een belangrijk gegeven. De locatie hadden we bewust gekozen, maar we hebben ons niet gerealiseerd dat de locatie voor zoveel nachtelijk lawaai kon zorgen.
Owner Response of Hampshire Hotel - City Groningen
Zeer geachte gast, Dank voor uw heldere feedback. Fijn dat u heeft genoten van uw kamer, het prettige matras en de koffie en thee faciliteiten. Wel spijtig om te vernemen dat u geluidshinder heeft ondervonden op zaterdagnacht. Wellicht dat u mij uw directe contactgegevens kan sturen met uw verblijfsdetails. De kamers aan de voorzijde beschikken over roosters welke nl gesloten kunnen worden dit verminderd het geluid aanzienlijk. Graag zie ik uw reactie tegemoet.

“Hampshire City Groningen”

Mooi hotel, nette kamers, goede bedden. Klantvriendelijk personeel en een ruim ontbijt. Alleen gehorig aan de straatkant. Maar het hotel bevindt zich midden in de stad dus straatgeluiden zijn op zich logisch. Parkeergarage is een fijne aanvulling. Personeel doet wat ze kunnen zodat je ook na uitchekken nog welkom bent voor evt je spullen en auto.
