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.

“A really very nice experience”

The hotel has a very good location - you can go by foot from the railway station and the city center is also at a walking distance. The rooms are perfectly clean and nice (one complaint: the pillows - uncomfortable for the backbone...). The breakfast is great, much more than you expect from a 3-star hotel. What makes the hotel really special is the kindness of its staff - always ready to assist and help the guests.

We have thinner ones available, we would have loved to bring you these. My apologies that we did not know. I am glad that you like our breakfast buffet and thank you for the compliment! Best wishes and we hope to welcome you again in the future! Best regards, Sjoukje Witkop - Hotel Manager

“Look no further!”

It's such a great place, with a friendly staff and a really nice ambience. And it's close to everything! We were traveling with our infant and the staff prepared a really nice crib with a cute set of baby linen. Way to go! We will stay there again!

Friends getaway
“Very good”

I stay in this hotel at least 3 times a year, to visit old friends living nearby. So, I'm not in the hotel a lot but just use it to sleep and have a shower. I think it is very affordable, being based in the city centre, with great rooms, good beds and friendly staff.

“expected better”

We are used to stay in Hapshire hotel Groningen Centre, which is 400 m away from this Hapshire. This time we decided to have a change a go for the current one, which is slightly closer to downtown. Well upon our arrival we were told that the only clean room they have is on the ground floor, with not a great view. We did not care much for a view and agreed. The room in located in the corridor behind the reception. The view is indeed into the wall... But we i had no problem with that. However, the noise level in this location is very disturbing! late night one hears a cafe noise from next door (even with closed window) and early morning the door which separates the reception from the room kept on banging... people were leaving and you could count every single gust exiting the corridor.
Owner Response of Hampshire Hotel - City Groningen
Dear Alina, Thank you for taking the time to write about your stay in our hotel. My sincere apologies that there was noise coming from the restaurant next door and that the door to your hallway did not close quietly. We will definately look into it. We very much appreciate your feedback. I am sorry we did not meet up to your expectations. I hope you consider giving us another chance and let us give you a room in a different part of the hotel. Despite the noise disturbance, I hope you had a great time in our city. Have a wonderful day! Best regards,
