City Hotel Groningen, Groningen
Baffled about so many positive reviews!
80-plus € for a brothel-looking 12sqm2 room is almost a joke. A very small window looking towards a closed alley made it even more depresing. The hotel advertises a "gym" which is a, perceived, even smaller room with a Treadmill. Breakfast was average and not included in price. Only good thing about the hotel was its personnel. Friendly and unpretentious (even making jokes about their "gym"). They were really helpful. During the time of my stay, buildings across the street were being demolished. Not that you can blame the Hotel for that, but all in all it was not really an enjoyable stay. Sorry folks!

Nice location
A few blocks from shopping, seesights and transportation. The lobby is beautiful, with natural light over the bar and nice seats areas wth fireplaces. Amazing restaurants right next door. Now, about the room, the mattress has an overused soft foam cover, not comfortable at all. The toilet was clogged and the phone didn't work. They resolved the toilet fast. There's a coffee machine on each floor. The rooms don't have frigobar.

Good location
Great location, walking distance to everything, lots of restaurants nearby. A few things were lacking, no teacups, plastic glasses wrapped in more plastic, very unsustainable, disappointing. Face washers would have been nice and towels a bit threadbare. We were told hotel was in changeover of name hopefully new owners will address these points. When you are away from home for a period of time little things make a big difference in comfort. Lighting in bathroom was terrible the shower was like a cave. We did receive an upgrade, it did make me think what else might have been lacking in original room If we hadn’t received this. 2 luggage racks would be handy for 2 people.
