Very central

Location, cleanliness, helpfulness of staff
The hotel was well situated. It was not convenient if one has a car as you have to park several blocks away and carry your luggage from there. It was clean and comfortable. The staff were very helpful.

Best location

Best location, nice staff, large room
Old building, clean room. Comfortable bed, large room. Centrally located in the city centre, walking distance to many photo spot. Restaurants & bars arround the corners. No carpark in the hotel, must walk about 500m to some car parks.

Awesome location, everything close by!

centrally located, easy walk to the train station, great staff
Stay was okay and great staff. Room was super small, but the location makes up for it, but ask for a room in the back and on a higher floor for some additional comfort.

Great location

Great central location
Stayed for one night to explore the city of Groningen. Hotel is 10 min walking from central station and perfectly located on the city's main square. Only negative was that the hotel's wifi wasn't working.

Ideal location - but don't come by car

The hotel ist directly on the market place, ideally located for exploring the city. The rooms are a bit on the small side, but comfortable and offer everything you need. WiFi is free. The adjoining restaurant (The Three Sisters) is quite good as is the breakfast buffet.
We had quite an enjoyable stay for the reasons mentioned above, especially because everything in the city is within walking distance. A really negative aspect - but most likely beyond the control of the hotel - is the fact that you don't stand a chance to get close to the hotel by car, because of the city's traffic regulations, which are strange - to put it mildly. There is a multi-storey carpark about 500 m away, but you only find out about it, when you have finally reached the hotel. The interior (especially the rooms) is a bit faded. And don't open a window (they open to the inside) to enjoy the view better. The last cleaning must have occurred a (very) long time ago, so your clothes get dirty.
Travel tip: Groningen offers quite a few sights. A boat tour on the canals (1 hr) is recommended - € 11. There is a considerable number of cafés and restaurants in the vicinity of the hotel.

Great location and a great place

Location and not part of a chain
I stayed 2 nights travelling to see a band. It's a great place and nice that it has it's own character - not part of a chain of hotels. I'd stay again.

Excellent location and very comfortable

Characterful & comfortable, free wi-fi, right in the centre
i was very happy with my stay at hotel de doelen, had a room at the back with a nice bathroom. secondary windows meant silence and good sleeps. staff v. helpful & pleasant. location unbeatable: on main square with bus stops right outside, also walking distance to train station, bike park in square too.
Restaurant Tip: Da Vinci Italian restaurant on the canal is one of the best value in town; requires a reservation

great location, friendly staff, comfortable stay

Location, helpfulness of staff
We came to the hotel by car and did not know whether to park our car. The hotel staff had save us from being ripped off by a parking gara nearby and provide us access to even closer but much cheapter gara. The hotel is cleane, comfortable and very characteristic. A very good place if you want to enjoy Gronningen in its classic and relax atmosphere
