    Never Again

    I came to this hotel hoping for a good nights sleep. The first night there was constant noise from drunk people in the courtyard outside until 5AM. My window was closed. I’m not a light sleeper. I went downstairs at 5 AM because I had given up on getting any sleep, the receptionist was very rude to me, spoke to me like I was a criminal. Note: I have been a customer of The Student Hotel for 5+ years and stayed in multiple locations, some more than once. Due to this experience I will never again use one of these hotels or their restaurants. Also you might want to consider replacing the filters on the ventilation systems or increasing the cleaning schedules because the levels of dust in the air and on surfaces throughout the hotel was very bad, especially in this time of a pandemic the air quality is so important.

    Great spot in Groningen

    Lovely spot, and close to center of town. Friendly reception and service throughout the hotel. Excellent facilities. Alas, the cleanliness and housekeeping is not up to the same standard as the rest of the hotel.

    Will never come back again

    Slow check in and no standardised procedure. Other customers were provided with 2 room keys but my husband and only have one. Others had welcoming drinks but not for us. Racial discrimination? Very nice shower. When we were in a hurry to check out, it was found that the elevator was under maintenance but no instruction how to locate another lift. We stayed on 7/F and could hardly take 2 big suitcases down to the lobby on our own. Trapped on the 7/F and had to wait for the staff to take us to the hotel lobby. Very angry!

    When we booked, we were really hesitant because of the name of the hotel. But we have to say, this was the best hotel we stayed at during our entire 9 days in the Netherlands and we highly recommend it! Great atmosphere and concept. All residents and staff were fantastic! We will be sure to let everyone we know who comes to Holland about this great place!
