Top Hotel Areas in Groningen: Sitting at the very top of the Netherlands, the pretty University city of Groningen is much less well-known than the likes of Amsterdam and Rotterdam. But those who visit will be rewarded with a small but perfectly curated selection of museums and historic attractions, and a youthful, lively vibe (thanks in part to a large student population). There are also lots of opportunities to get active in the surrounding Groningen province.
The city centre of Groningen – known as Binnenstad (inner city) – is enclosed by a series of canals and gives you loads of hotel options. Cheap hotels in Groningen are easy to find, with plenty of three-star choices such as the City Hotel, and some affordable luxury options such as Suite 30, which is located near the large English garden-style Noorderplantsoen park in the north.
If you're looking for an active break, you'll find much to enjoy in the beautiful countryside that surrounds Groningen. There are good hotels both on the peaceful, picturesque coastline (part of the Wadden Sea World Heritage Site) and inland. Base yourself at a hotel in Paterswolde. and you'll have Paterswoldsemeer on your doorstep – a vast lake to the southwest of the city where you can swim, boat and kayak in summer, and ice-skate in winter.
In the city centre the excellent museums are a big draw. The Northern Maritime Museum and the quirky Netherlands Comic Book Museum both sit close to the city's famous Vismarkt Square, which hosts a popular medieval food market (Saturdays), with herring, cheese and potatoes galore. You'll find some smart canalside hotels near the Northern Maritime Museum and Vismarkt, including apartments suitable for families.
On the other side of the city you have the Grote Markt square, which is home to gothic church Martinikerk and its elaborate 15th century clocktower. You'll find a varied selection of hotels near Grote Markt, from two-star budget hotels to four-star luxury ones. It's a major city landmark and makes a good base.
Moving outside the city centre, try a hotel near the Pieterburen Seal Sanctuary to be close to one of the area's best family attractions. It's only 16 miles (25km) from Groningen centre, but there are a few local hotels that will put you right on the sanctuary's doorstep.
With its relaxed feel, fun museums and wholesome outdoor activities, Groningen is a very family friendly city. It also helps that cycling is encouraged over driving, keeping the air fresh, the roads safe and the countryside peaceful. There are lots of family friendly hotels in Groningen to choose from. The Best Western Plus Hotel sits conveniently between Paterswoldsemeer and the city centre, and boasts large family rooms, a pool and cycle hire (perfect if you're planning on tackling the Hondsrug cycling route that starts and ends at the Groningen market square).
Families on a budget could consider the Bud Gett Hostel, which is one of a good selection of affordable hotels in Groningen. Located within a ten-minute walk of Grote Markt, Vismarkt and the striking Groninger modern art museum, this simple hostel offers colourful rooms sleeping up to five guests.
Families with more to spend could consider an apartment hotel in Groningen. Try Loft 6, a roomy apartment close to the Groninger Museum. It offers plenty of space to spread out, including a balcony terrace. It also has a kitchen and dining table, which make it a good choice for those who prefer a self-catered stay – it's a good opportunity to cook some of the fresh goodies you've bought at the Vismarkt.
As well as family-friendly hotels, you'll also find a good selection of green hotels in Groningen, as the city is keen to maintain its clean streets and waterways, pollution-free air and lush countryside. NH Groningen Hotel de Ville is a popular eco-friendly hotel in Groningen centre, just five minutes walk from Grote Markt; meanwhile, the Fletcher Family Hotel offers a green accommodation option out in Paterswolde.
Hotels near museums in Groningen are a popular choice too, as they provide a convenient base near some of the city's top attractions (although the city centre is small and very walkable). Try the two-star Martini Hotel if you want to stay close to the Groninger Museum but have a limited budget. Alternatively, you could choose a hotel near to a transport link that will take you to Groninger's main train station, which sits just steps from the museum, underneath the city's southern canal.
