I stayed here on my last visit to Denmark while on business. The rooms are very spacious and clean with excellent amenities. Located in the city centre, you will have access to great food and drink along with shopping. The rooms have all wood floors, so you can hear some guests in the other rooms, but I wasn't bothered.

Hotel is set in a very good location in Odense, near the train station and in the middle of town. The hotel has a very nice group of staff and Louis in the bar makes great cocktails! Highly recommended.

This hotel is located within walking distance of the train station and is situated near the city's shopping district. Many shops and restaurants are within walking distance. The hotel itself has old world charm. The staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet is very good. The only improvements needed for 5 stars would be a clock in the room... More

I stayed at this hotel for business purpose. During that week the temperature was between 18-25 but my room felt like a sauna. Huge rooms with 2,5+ meter from floor to ceiling and bathroom directly connected but no aircon at all. Only way to get fresh air inside was to open a small tiny portion of the window, helping pretty... More

Good: Clean, nice location - standard continental breakfast (it has all you might want) Bad: in the bathroom is a 40-60W incandescent light bulb with a cover on it so you get little light. Overall it is what I was expected.

Lovely hotel. Right in the centre with a very friendly staff. No need for a car if you are only planning to stay in and around Odense. Only thing we could fault was that there was no air conditioning in the room. This meant that even with the window open it was uncomfortably hot.

Overall had a fine experience at the Grand hotel. While the hotel has a horrible layout - it seemed like a 10 minute walk through winding corridors in almost a maze like pattern, the overall stay was fine. We especially liked the hotel bar. Small intimate experience and the bartender is great at making custom cocktails and such. Rooms were... More
