Location of the hotel is very good if you want to be in the centre of the city. Might be noisy, but we had a beautiful suite on the first floor looking over the roofs on a back, so it was totally quiet. Personal was polite, helpful and all was going smooth. The hotel itself, even though is charming and...

Thus hotel in the beautiful centre of Groningen was an excellent place in the old days. Was... I said. Sadly enough the glory and the grandeur faded away. The staff is acting as if it's still the most upperclass place in town. With high eyebrows and without a trace of kindness a lady listened to us while we complained about...

This hotel boasts a great atmosphere and is very centrally located. The staff is very friendly and the breakfast buffet is great. The room was very clean and nice, but a bit "year nineties modern". Still to be recommended. Ask for a room with a view. We looked at a blank wall.

Nice room with a huge jacuzzi. Friendly staff. Nice location in city centre with hotel parking spaces available. Hotel with an authentic old atmosphere, feeling of travelling back in time without loosing any comfort.

Upon my arrival on Monday the 6th of February 2017 I was given suite number 3 in your hotel. During the night I was kept awake by machine noises emanating from somewhere outside. The sound was very much like a heater starting up for four seconds, pausing for about 10 seconds and then starting up again. This event would repeat...

Hotel Schimmelpenninck Huys is located in the heart of Groningen. The staff is friendly and the monumental building gives you the feeling that you are travelling back in time. The room we booked was clean and spacious, but unfortunately it was somewhat outdated. However, the giant hot tub in the bathroom was a great treat. All in all, the stay...

I am in Groningen for the night and a coworker recommended this hotel. It's a charming, old, well cared for hotel! It's what serious travelers want to experience!
