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.

“Great rooms, central location, kind employees”

The breakfast was delicious and had a wide selection; the rooms were clean and modern; the employees were very friendly and helpful. I would gladly stay here again. Through a mix up with my conference registration, I did stay in the other Hampshire Hotel for one night. My view in the City hotel wasn't as good as in the Centre hotel, but the facilities, breakfast, and staff were superior at this one.

“Assen moto gp”

Stopped here 2 years in a row now and got my 3rd booked for June 2017. Perfect location for all the attractions in Gronigan, very central but quiet if you want an early night, it is only 20 minutes to get to Assen for the Moto GP. Hotel is nice and clean and we have always been looked after and the staff are very friendly, wouldn't stop anywhere else. Mark H

“kind service and top breakfast”

We were for a visit in Groningen 18th march. The hotel was near the station (15 minutes walk) in the center off shops, restaurants and bars, and across the casino wich was open till 3 am. In the hotel and everywhere the people where very kind and helpfull. The room was oke, clean and everything we needed. Coffee machine in the hall to use for free was a good service and breakfast was outstanding. In the city we can recomment a kind bar, "het Kelderke", The only thing we didn't like was the weather.

“Overnight stay”

Accommodation was average, although clean and staff were friendly. Parking garage was not on site although only a few minutes by foot, website doesn't mention this as far as I could see. Was fairly central and easily reachable by foot to the main square in town.
