I think that the way you are welcomed into any place greatly determines how you feel about that place. Don’t you think so too? In that respect our start at The Student Hotel couldn’t have been better because we were greeted very friendly by two young girls. I had made the booking through booking.com and apparently we were registered for a luxury suite. Yes, yes…
I couldn’t really remember if I had specifically booked that but I am not one to complain when booked into a luxury suite.
When entering into our “luxury suite” we had to laugh a little but because the word luxury was mostly due to the size of the room. I think… The room was large and mostly empty.. 🙂 But the bed was fantastic, there was coffee in the room (always a plus I think) and the shower was perfect too, so that is enough luxury for me. But if you do specifically ask for a luxury suite (because let’s face it, it does have a nice ring to it) don’t expect too much.
The student hotel is a hotel that is different from others in that it – as the name would suggest – also houses students. If you’re a foreign student you can rent a room here for a month or if you have to work in Groningen you can also rent a room for a reasonable rpice. Monthly prices start from € 635,= That is not too much in a city like Groningen for the space and the facilities you get for that price.
You will see young people everywhere, but once inside your room, there is no additional noise at all. No nightly stumbling through the corridors. I have the feeling they might keep the students in other part of the hotel. No idea, but we were really happy with our one night stay. The cost for 1 room including breakfast was only € 108,=. For a hotel at the edge of the city center, I think that is more than reasonable. Breakfast is in restaurant The Pool and you can also have lunch or dinner here.
The student hotel has more establishments in various cities across the country. In Groningen they are situated at the Boterdiep and you can park in the adjacent parking garage for € 10,= for 24 hours.
