This is a typical budget hotel and you get what you pay for. Room with bed, table and 2 chairs and a wardrobe. Tv and free wifi. There is a washing table in the room, down the hall 2 toilets and 2 showers for the people of that floor. Owner friendly, good breakfast.

Spent 2 nights here, having come for the Bowie exhibition. It's fairly basic, with no en-suite in the room I chose (but fairly quiet if you ask for a room at the back), but clean. Breakfast included, really just bread and cold meat/cheese, but nice orange juice and coffee. The owner was pleasant and helpful. Probably not appropriate for a...

We were travelling from Germany and called the hotel to check availability. The manager confirmed us the double room. When we got there (18:30) he told us he has sold the room to another guys. "Sorry, I cannot help you" He said. "Maybe you fit in a single room (we are couple + dog) for 30€, have a look" The...

I lodged two nights at Hotel Friesland. The breakfast was pretty good, its dining room cozy and comfortable. My room (#12) was just okay, the double bed, actually two single mattresses placed side by side. Friesland's location was ideal, a building built in 1840 in the historic area, maybe a kilometer or less from the train station, on a quiet...

This hotel is located at the heart of Groningen (Binnenstad). The host and employees are nice. The rooms are ok, not too clean and make sure that you get one of the rooms near the stairs if the free WiFi is important to you; otherwise you might have problem in getting a signal. Make also sure to get a room...

The pluses here are the location and the niceness of the staff. The price is commensurate with the comfort. Beware, rooms are without toilet. The hot water did not work but the gentleman at the desk brought me a thermos to shave with. Of course these things should be checked by any staff worth their salt. That and the radiator...

Well, it's clean and the showers are nice and strong/warm. The beds are comfortable too, and it's well located. It seems cheaper than other hotels in town, though not significantly so. But it's very shabby - paint peeling of walls and old furniture. The breakfast is pretty poor and while the staff were not unfriendly, they didn't seem particularly enthusiastic/helpful...

This place is very old and extremely noisy. You won't get a good night sleep when staying here. It's actually not even a hotel but a hostel (you share toilet and shower with other guests) all though they charge you for a hotel.

No en-suite rooms. Breakfast times poor - 8am start on day one, switched to 8:30am on day two with no warning of this in advance. Beds reasonably comfortable. Overall value poor at €55 per night.
