I lodged two nights at Hotel Friesland. The breakfast was pretty good, its dining room cozy and comfortable. My room (#12) was just okay, the double bed, actually two single mattresses placed side by side.

Friesland's location was ideal, a building built in 1840 in the historic area, maybe a kilometer or less from the train station, on a quiet street. The WiFi was excellent to the room, the best I have had so far in Europe. The staff was friendly and helpful.

This hotel is located at the heart of Groningen (Binnenstad). The host and employees are nice. The rooms are ok, not too clean and make sure that you get one of the rooms near the stairs if the free WiFi is important to you; otherwise you might have problem in getting a signal. Make also sure to get a room directed towards courtyard if you prefer a more silent setting.

The pluses here are the location and the niceness of the staff. The price is commensurate with the comfort. Beware, rooms are without toilet.
The hot water did not work but the gentleman at the desk brought me a thermos to shave with. Of course these things should be checked by any staff worth their salt. That and the radiator that was making watery noises and should have been "bled."
Breakfast was included and was ok.
Ask for a room NOT on the street if on a weekend because there are noisy students on the street side.

Room Tip: not on street side

Well, it's clean and the showers are nice and strong/warm. The beds are comfortable too, and it's well located. It seems cheaper than other hotels in town, though not significantly so.

But it's very shabby - paint peeling of walls and old furniture. The breakfast is pretty poor and while the staff were not unfriendly, they didn't seem particularly enthusiastic/helpful either. The facilities seem a little poor - one toilet and two showers on a floor - but I never found them full.

I was travelling for work but with a limited budget, so I was just looking for somewhere to sleep at night - for that it was fine. I wouldn't recommend it for a holiday unless money was very tight.

This place is very old and extremely noisy. You won't get a good night sleep when staying here.
It's actually not even a hotel but a hostel (you share toilet and shower with other guests) all though they charge you for a hotel.
