Ghent, Belgium
Reviewed 22 February 2017

Nice business hotel with a very good restaurant for dinner. The breakfast offers a good variety of food. Single rooms are spacious enough for a couple of nights. For longer a larger room would be advisable. The highway is quite close and from my room the traffic made a continuous noise.

My second stay at this hotel after several previous visits to Groningen had failed to identity a decent hotel, apart from of course the Prinsenhof, but the rates there are often prohibitive. The Mercure is convenient for my business but far enough from Town to warrant having a good restaurant. And that is where the Mercure scores highly. The hotel...

I really enjoyed my stay here during the Eurosonic Convention. The rooms are comfortable, clean and most importantly very quiet. I didn't hear a peep all night and I'm a very light sleeper. The bed is very comfortable and the free drinks in the mini bar are a very nice gesture toward their clients. The breakfast buffet has everything including...

This Mercure has an excellent restaurant for dinner and buffet breakfast. The food was truly delicious, and the breakfast counter full of goodies! When I explained my surprise about the price I had to pay for a single room, I found out that overall, in all hotels, Groningen was fully booked at this time of the year, and that this...

Stayed here for 2 days. Was pleasantly surprised by the friendly staff, the quality meals and choice of wines by the glass. Great quiet rooms. Everything you wish for on a business trip. There is a free Nespresso coffe machine at the entrance during morning.

I loved staying in the Mercure Groningen Martiniplaza! Nicely welcomed or served at the bar by charming people! I slept like a baby in a very comfortable bed! I loved the green way of thinking : like 5€ discount at the restaurant if you do not require that your room is made every day. Free drinks in your minibar....

We chose to book a "Mystery Hotel" via a booking site and whilst our disappoitment lies mostly with the booking site itself for allocating us this hotel, we feel it reasonable to warn others that the Mercure Groningen is strictly for those attending a conference or show at the adjacent Martiniplaza, its not a place you'd want to stay if...

I stayed at Mercure Groningen for business. The room was really great - strong wifi signal, warm water in the shower, isolated from outside noise and a comfortable bed. The resturant downstairs however is very packed and since the hotel is quite isolated you don't have much of a choice (unless you're driving) than dining at the hotel's resturant. As...

Nice hotel, perfect rooms. Unfortunately the parking lot was full so had to park outside which is a paid parking from 07:00 AM till 12:00 PM. Breakfast is a bit too expensive but nevertheless fresh and good, really liked the fresh orangejuice machine :-).
