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.

“Nice hotel with good location”

We stayed at the hotel one night. Good location close to restaurants. Rooms clean and comfortable. They have a nice roof terrace where one can sit and enjoy a drink or free coffee. Car parking at the opposite casino is unfortunately very expensive, and the hotel could be better advicing on cheaper options.

“it's a business hotel”

No atmosphere whatsoever, hotels OK, helpful staff, good rooms, secure motorcycle parking (expensive). It's got a bar but no draught beer. 5 minute walk from City centre with ample bars and restaurants, 10 minute walk to the train station (easy access to Assen). Breakfast not until 8.00 am at weekends (and it's 15€).
Owner Response of Hampshire Hotel - City Groningen
Dear guest, Thanks a lot for writing this review. I'm very sorry that we were not able to live up to your expectations however with your input we can improve ourselves. Due to the unexpected crowd (beer lovers :-) during this specific weekend (TT-races), we unfortunately ran out of draught beer however in general we always have 3 types of draught beer (throughout the year). Due to this "unexpected situation" we offered an alternative with buying bottles of beer. Small detail... we have never sold soo much beer but next year we will make sure there is plenty! I do hope I may welcome you again so you can experience that we will do anything to give you a pleasant stay. With kind regards Sjoukje Witkop Hotel Manager
