NH Groningen Hotel de Ville

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I spent only one night but it was very nice. Friendly reception staff and the room was very big and very clean. the price was very good for the service I received. Located in the center it is perfect to reach any other location in town. Easy parking facilities directly on the street or in parking houses.

Visited Groningen for the first time for business and chose this hotel for central location to the city. Though weather was a bit cold for exploring too much, it was very close by walking to restaurants and the center of town. The hotel itself is of the older European style, so don't expect the most modern hotel in this university town. Yes, actual metal keys are required to lock and unlock the door, and don't look for a thermostat on the wall, you need to adjust the radiator for heat. But service was good, and the breakfast (extra) was fine with European cold meats and cheeses, bread, fruit, cereal and yogurt, and bacon/sausage and scrambled eggs. But the biggest complaint as mentioned by another was the poor wifi reception in the room (better in the lobby).

Disappointing stay- the wifi was extremely poor for the entire time. The room was very small and a constant shuffle was required to get access to the bathroom. The decor was dated and in need of a revamp. Having said that the room was clean and tidy.

great hotel , but beds were very hard and split in the middle, breakfast was awesome , lots of choices and great food. hospitality was great as well. rooms were clean and well layed out. even floor heating in the bathroom.

I had a great time and can recommend the stay at this hotel. The stuff is friendly, the rooms are ok and clean and worm. It was a pleasure to spend the 2 nights at the hotel. the breakfasts are ok. and the location in the center is perfect.

We had a comfy stay in nh hotel de ville. It is just a minute walk from Vismarkt and groote markt. The general interior is nice, the room size was bigger than usual. Bed was very comfortable! Only con would be the thin walls, so you may hear your neighbors shower. It was not our first stay here and we will stay here again.

We had a first floor room overlooking the inner courtyard. We did not have any noise or wifi issues that other reviewers note. The room was clean, the bed comfortable and the linens adequate. Friendly staff. No air conditioning. The valet parking is essential! the hotel is not easy to reach by car, but once found, it is an ideal location for exploring the inner city. The breakfast buffet is satisfactory. Dinner at the ala carte restaurant was just OK -- our group was forced into the set menu (mackerel starter and veal main) which was OK, but the service was extremely slow for a non-busy night. Recommend the hotel, but not the restaurant.

This is a nice hotel, clean, well run, stylish & central. The room was large & well appointed, but we had to leave the windows open because of the heatwave and were woken a couple of times by drunken idiots in the alleyway below. I was very irritated by the free wi-fi, which is explicitly inhibited to stop streaming, but was slower than 3G and in a hotel with it's apparent aspiration, this is a foolish way to try & get money from the customer. The staff however were delightful & the breakfast was impressively varied. But - and it's a pretty big but, finding it in a car is difficult and it's on a narrow one way street so you really need the offered valet parking - which has a maximum height of 1.8m - not enough for our van.

I stayed here for a week in November 2016 on a business trip. The hotel has a great central location, the room was spacious & comfortable. The choice at breakfast was also very good. Hotel is situated about a 5 min walk from town center and is close to many good restaurants & bars. The Hotel staff were friendly, efficient, and always helpful.

I really loved this hotel. Stayed here 5 nights. Our room overlooked the inside courtyard. Very beautiful and peaceful. You can sit inside or outside. There us bar service. One evening some guests were up late outside right outside my window. I asked the front desk if they could move inside, which they handled immedately and very politely. Every afternoon the hotel sits out fresh water and small treats. In the morning there are apples. Beds were comfortable. Plenty of towels. This is not high end, but it was really very nice and I would stay here again. Only complaints: no clocks in the rooms and poor bathroom lighting.
