Bastion Hotel Groningen

Best Of IgoUgo

Hotel

Quote:
Situated on the A7 motorway on the outskirts of Groningen. This is one of the characteristics of the Bastion Concept. They are always on the outside of a city and near the highway. For business travellers it’s perfect to stay at. They are easy to find as you can see from afar the Bastion logo on. Personally I find this hotel a bit too far from the centre of Groningen. But one advantage is that it is in the vicinity of the Martiniplaza conference centre.It's not a big hotel and there are only 40 rooms. The hotel has a spacious parking lot and is free parking with a number of disabled parking spaces. You enter the hotel and you're immediately in a familiar environment. A typical style of the...Read More

From the street you have to climb a few steps first coming onto a large terrace for the restaurant. Walk straight ahead you come to the entrance. Once you enter you are in a corridor with these kind of two living rooms with a number of tables. Once you sit in one of the rooms, do you really feel like you are sitting in a living room. The floor is wooden and so are the tables. The walls and curtains are red and at the ceiling hangs a large chandelier. There is a large fireplace with a large mirror. It looks cosy and pleasant and because there are two spaces it is also small. From the hallway you walk on to an indoor conservatory idea with many more tables, behind is a large outdoor terrace, overlooking...Read More

Pathe Cinema Groningen

Best Of IgoUgo

Attraction | "Pathe Groningen"

Quote:
Who does not love to see a movie? Often we just watch a movie at home but sometimes it's just a fun to go to the cinema. Pathé Groningen is situated in the center and gives the perfect opportunity to go see a movie. The Pathé cinema is located in the center of Groningen and within walking distance of the station. If you walk straight from the station to the City Centre, you will pass the cinema. This is therefore 5 minutes walk from the station, but also about 5 minutes from downtown. The cinema is located on a busy but pleasant street with many cafes and restaurants. Especially in the summer you can find many terraces. When you come by car you are dependent on pay parking since you're rig...Read More

Chaplin's Pub

Restaurant | "a great pub in Groningen"

Quote:
Groningen is a town with many little bars, restaurants and shops to be found. It’s mostly due because it’s a student town. With over more than 20.000 students going here to school you will find many great little bars that aren’t too expensive. The problem in Groningen can be to find a bar that hasn’t have the typical brown wood colors. Unfortunately the Chaplin’s Pub located near the city center has the same problem.Chaplin’s pub is a great little bar located on the street Zuiderduip which is right on route from the main train station to the city center. It’s about five minutes walking from the station and five minutes from the main square in Groningen. At the street there are many bus sto...Read More

Groningen is a wonderful town in the north of Holland. It’s the largest city in the north but still small compared to the main capital of Amsterdam. It has around 200.000 people including a large numbers of students. Since the large number of students the town has a large variety of bars and restaurants. The town square of Groningen is called the Grote markt, translated it means the big market. Almost every town in Holland has a square with this name and it’s mostly the center of the town. It’s truly a lovely place to wonder around with history buildings as the city hall. There are also shops to be found and activities as a market but especially in the summer you can also find music festiv...Read More
