It’s a two-hour drive from Amsterdam to Groningen. The Market Hotel is the perfect start to a tour of this wonderful city. Located at the Grote Markt square, the hotel is built on the same spot as where Willem Albert Scholten – a Dutch industrialist – once lived. It’s a home not only for guests, but also Groningen residents. The location is perfect. The beating heart of Groningen, including shopping, restaurants and sightseeing, is within reach.
The structure, interior, and furnishings of the property itself are equally impressive. As well as the beautiful square in front of the hotel, which is now being restored to its former glory. Rooms and suites offer the perfect relief after exploring Groningen. Finished with sleek and contemporary design, the rooms’ textured fabrics, beautiful wood finishes, large windows and strategic lighting placement work together to achieve a divine ambiance. Our spacious Deluxe Plus Room had everything we needed: Nespresso machine, mini desk, seating area, stunning bathroom, most comfortable bed, hairdryer, iron, even a small kitchenette with microwave and refrigerator. And a balcony with a view of the Grote Markt. When traveling with kids like we did, two adjoining rooms connected with a door is possible and create extra space and calm.
Escape to the peaceful wellness for a stress-free zone. Here, you will find relaxation and the opportunity to recharge after an exciting day in the city. Choose from a wide variety of treatments to help you relax and feel your best. It also features a fitness area, sauna and Turkish steam bath.
Vibrant Café Willem Albert
The complete The Market Hotel experience may include dinner and/or evening drinks at Café Willem Albert, a beautiful and vibrant spot. Including cozy fireplace, comfortable furniture, and a stunning bar. To end the night, sip on a cocktail while enjoying the city skyline from the Rooftop Bar, which will open soon.
Famous Bakery Westers
Bakery Westers offers the best freshly baked sandwiches and coffee during breakfast and lunch. The fresh breakfast buffet with carefully selected products in the beautiful Café Willem Albert provided everything we needed for the perfect start of the day. From Sunday to Wednesday, you can also enjoy an extensive The Market High Tea. At the pastry shop, there is a wide variety of pastries, pies and biscuits. Nice detail: the hotel is located between two squares. There is a terrace on both sides of the hotel, directly on the squares!
Home between the markets
Service is great, a lot of thought has been put into ensuring that all guests walk away happy. From the easy check-in to the remarkably friendly staff. A big thumbs up for that! Overall, the Market Hotel is a must-visit destination for anyone visiting Groningen. Lose yourself in the enchanting allure at the heart of a historic city. Whether you’re visiting for business or pleasure, the Market Hotel is the perfect place to stay in Groningen. We absolutely loved this Home Between The Markets!
