Entrance The Happy Traveler

The Happy Traveler

In one of the most beautiful alleys of Groningen you will find Guesthouse / Bar The Happy Traveler where the entire Guesthouse is decorated with theà unique travel theme. On their unique Ibiza style roofterrace you will find yourself in a tropical resort!

Since the start of Guesthouse/bar the Happy Traveler in 2021, we have succeeded in recreating the travel theme throughout the Guesthouse. This unique concept means that we receive many positive reactions from our guests. Both business and private guests, young and old are welcome with us! Because we do not clean all rooms every day, but only a few times a week (You don't change your bed every day at home, do you?) and we clean your room on request, we can offer competitive prices!

Are you not looking for an overnight stay, but rather for the most beautiful roof terrace in Groningen? Then be sure to visit our roof terrace "The Happy View" (check our website for opening hours).
This unique terrace is fully furnished in Ibiza style so that you feel like you are in a warm holiday country while enjoying a nice drink or a tropical cocktail!
