Centrally located in the shadow of the Martini tower, adjacent to the magnificent Martini cemetery, Hotel Prinsenhof is a real gem. The abbey church with its imposing fireplace now serves as the hotel’s Grand Café with a walled terrace at the front. Restaurant Alacarte, overlooking the Prinsentuin (Prince’s Garden) is housed in the former sleeping quarters of Stadtholder Willem Frederik and his spouse Albertine Agnes. The renaissance Prince’s Garden dates from 1626 and has a rose garden, herb garden, two romantic bowers and a magnificent sun dial. Trendy VANMOOF city bicycles are available to explore the city. The Prinsentuin Garden is located at the rear of the hotel. In the Prinsentuin Garden you will find the initials of the late viceroy Willem Frederik and his spouse Albertine Agnes, a ‘W’ and an ‘A’, cut out of low hedges. The hotel has two terraces. The Grand Café terrace is in the walled courtyard, adjacent to the Martinikerkhof square. Restaurant Alacarte’s terrace is on the Prinsentuin Garden. Groningen is the province’s capital, rich in cultural heritage. This vibrant, buzzing city is host to many colleges and to one of the Holland’s most revered universities. Places of interest are the Groningen Museum, the Maritime Museum and the Comics Museum.
The hotel’s guest rooms and suites overlook the Square or the Prinsentuin Garden. The individually styled elegant guest rooms all come with the finest bed linen, oak parquet floors and Acqua di Parma toiletries in all bathrooms.

Fine dining and lunches are served in Restaurant Alacarte, a truly magnificent setting, overlooking the Prinsentuin Garden. The Grand Café offers breakfast, lunch and dinner.
