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.

“Good hotel in the city center”

This hotel is very well located in the citycenter, you can do everything walking around, parking just in front at the casino. Rooms are clean and functional, breakfast is acceptable but I find it too expensive. It is ok for a short stay for business or to visit Groningen as a tourist.

“Good location easy walk from train station”

Tourist information directed me to the wrong Hampshire hotel which fortunately was close by. Hotel should provide better directions to avoid confusion. The desk clerk at the first Hampshire hotel did not give me correct directions so I got lost trying to find the hotel. I am sure this happens frequently enough so they should provide a small clear map to guests who go to the wrong location. My room only had a view of the roof of an adjacent building. Very disappointing .
Owner Response of Hampshire Hotel - City Groningen
Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We are sorry that the directions were not clear. We apologize for giving you a room on the backside of the hotel instead of the streetside. Regardless, I hope that you enjoyed your stay with us and hope you give us the opportunity to right the wrongs another time. We appreciate your feedback and wish you a very pleasant evening. Best regards, Kim Bekkering

“Great Experience and Excellent Service”

Having arrived in Groningen after 3 weeks in a boat I needed a clean and comfortable hotel. The Hampshire City (recommended by the Tourist office) exceeded my expectations in this and all other areas in particular the courtesy and helpfulness of all staff including Front Reception and the ladies serving breakfast - all a credit to their company and to Dutch hospitality. My room and bathroom a little small for a single occupant but it was clean and cosy and represented good value for money. I shall be looking to staying here again when I next visit Groningen.
