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.

“Fantastic weekend in Groningen”

We stayed at the Hampshire hotel for two nights. We found it very clean and comfortable. The staff were more than helpful and very pleasant. The breakfast should not be missed. We would certainly stay here again

“Average but comfortable”

A very standard hotel. Nothing too special but was comfortable and spacious enough. Decided to pay a little extra for what was described in the website as 'a room with a view' although was disappointed when finding that the apparent 'view' was through a reasonably small window at the bottom of the wall, certainly not worth any extra cost. Staff were all friendly however and the room was clean and fresh. The decor is slightly outdated, could do with a renovation. Would stay again with knowing what to expect.
Owner Response of Hampshire Hotel - City Groningen
Dear ashe97, First of all, thank you for taking the time te write a review. Secondly, I am sad to read that your expectations of our hotel did not meet. We try to offer our guests a proper city experience with a great location in the city centre. It includes that we can not offer a nice view to every room. And the architecture of our building has a great appearance, but has just a couple uncommon positioning of windows. Unfortunately you`ve been given this room due to circumstances. So even though the room was larger and the view was better, I understand you feel the extra costs was not worth it. That said, I`m pleased that the staff and the room did meet your expectations. So I`m in good confidence that your total Groningen experience was one to remember. And you will be more than welcome to come again! Once again, thank you for your review. Best regards, Sjoukje Witkop

“One night Groningen”

Very good location, walking distance to the Grote Markt and the different pubs, restaurants, musea and theaters and of course the shops. Clean rooms, friendly personnel. Parking possible at the hotel or in the parking garage just opposite the hotel for a reduced price. Good value for money

“Comfortable and convenient ”

Staff are very friendly and helpful. The sauna is lovely with an outdoor shower (and one indoors if you prefer) but needs to be booked in advance. The hotel is close to the canal and the old city centre with a good tapas bar right next door. The rooms are fine, although the decor would stand updating, with comfortable beds and everything you need. We asked for a quiet room and were given one at the back of the hotel and it was very quiet. Breakfast is standard Netherlands breakfast, nothing fancy but all fine. Would stay here again.

“Weekend Groningen”

We booked this with cadeaubox deal, as I got this as a present. I had the feeling that this was one of the reasons why we got a room under the reception with view on a wall. So that was not greart, however the staff was very friendly and helpful and apologised for it and the room itself was not too small. Oh the door of our room (016) was not always closing automatically, so maybe something to look at and the lamp on left side of the bed was a little broke n too. The breakfast was a good basic buffet
Owner Response of Hampshire Hotel - City Groningen
Dear Marie_Wirion, I am sorry that you got the feeling that this was the reason why you had a room in our souterrain. However this is off course not the reason. Our standard rooms are located in the souterrain but also on the fifth floor. We do apologize for the inconvenience caused. Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. This helps us to improve ourselves. Please let us know when you will be visiting us again, we can make sure that you have a room on a higher floor with city view :-). We hope that we can welcome you again some day. Kind regards, Sjoukje Witkop, Hotel Manager
