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?

Museums
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.

Architecture
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.

Children
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.

View
The Martini Tower on the Grote Markt is the city's showpiece. You can also climb the 96.8 metre high tower.

“Good location, great service”

I like this hotel because it is centrally located in the city of Groningen, within easy walking distance of the Grote Markt. The single room (4th floor) was clean and quiet, but tiny, with just enough room to turn around. High-speed WiFi worked flawlessly. The staff is extremely helpful. Good breakfast buffet.
Owner Response of Hampshire Hotel - City Groningen
Good evening and thank you so much for sharing your experience in our hotel. The single room is indeed quite small, I am sorry. We do have different (larger) room types, I would love for you to try a larger room next time, if you decide to return to our hotel. Thank you for the kind words about our staff and breakfast buffet. I hope that I may welcome you again in the near future, have a nice evening! Best regards, Alex Kaminski - Hotel Manager

“Great but breakfast not included”

Great team front of house, very welcoming and helpful. Hotel in a convenient central location. Breakfast is not included, and is pretty expensive at €16. But if your not a big eater there is free coffee on each floor and a supermarket 5 mins away.
Owner Response of Hampshire Hotel - City Groningen
Good evening and thank you for your review. I am glad you had such a warm welcome. I am sorry that the breakfast seems expensive. Because of the extensiveness of the selection of the warm & cold breakfast items, we are convinced it is worth this rate. But if you are not a big eater as you say, I certainly understand and you have a valid point about the coffee in the hallway. I hope you had a great stay and that I may welcome you once again. Best regards, Alex Kaminski - Hotel Manager

“I enjoyed my stay!”

It was a great hotel and room. The room was clean and they are very aware of sustainability. One thing : the costs of breakfast are vert high. I eat one Little bowl with yoghurt and muesli, so 16 euro's is very expensive then :)
Owner Response of Hampshire Hotel - City Groningen
