University Hotel, Groningen

I got no sleep thanks to the fact that the hotel shares a courtyard with a pub. The drunks congregate in the courtyard (on picnic tables) until at least 3 AM. If you plan to stay up past 3 AM, then it is a good hotel. Otherwise, go somewhere else. And I did not stay on a weekend. I stayed on Wednesday and Thursday nights. You would think it would be quiet during the week. Also, when I checked in I had a question. I called the front desk from my room phone. The phone seemed to hang up. This happened repeatedly. To his credit, the employee came to see what I needed. He handled my situation. In addition, we had a lengthy discussion about the phone problems. I figured he had fixed my phone. This was around 3 PM. Later that night, around 1 AM, I tried to call the front desk to see if they were going to do anything about the very loud drunks below my window. You guessed it, the phone kept hanging up on me. I never got through to the front desk and no one ever came to check on me. I was too exhausted to go down to the front desk in person (It is a very long, winding hallway. Essentially, you walk all the way around the outside of the building, while remaining in the hallway.) In the interest of fairness....the room was neat and tidy. It was stylish. It was a bit warm and the phone did not work, as mentioned. If you don't care about sleeping before 3 AM, then it is a nice hotel.

Problems with University Hotel
The personal service at the University Hotel were excellent and the personnel quite helpful. The room was sparse and the shower tiny, but was also quite acceptable (though there was no AC or any fans). But, the window faced a courtyard that included a restaurant/pub and was excessively noise (until 2:00 a.m. at least). We got very little sleep. The hotel even included ear plugs (unrequested) in the room so they realize just how noisy the courtyard can be.

The hotel is quite convenient. It was a bit spartan, but everything worked and was as advertised. Breakfast was good and people friendly. Parking is a very minor issue (one must get a chip from the front desk every time) but the lot was literally a 2 minute walk from the hotel. I would stay again, maybe in a bigger room.

Great Hotel in a good and lively neighbourhood
The hotel rooms were nice and comfortable. It was definitely worth the money. The location was also great as there were many bars n pubs below the hotel. This can sometimes be an inconvenience for people sleeping in the rooms because of the noise.
