I have used Grand Hotel, Odense several times with satisfaction. This time I was dissatisfied, because I was given a room at the far end of another building, which meant a long walk inside the place. So remember to specify that you want a room in the old building, I was told.

Central location if you want to go to restaurants and cafes or jus go shopping. Downside is the noise from people going out. Stayed in the old block but changed room due to noise from drunk people going out and later at night going home. Moved to the new block, but it didnt do that much since there was a... More

The Best location in Odense - center of the city. The staff were very kind and helpful. The rooms were very nice and the beds were great. The only negative ting were the cleaning in the bathrooms. The breakfast was delicious - large selection.

Nice atmosphere in historic building located in central Odense. Pleasant and quiet room with beds of high standard. Bathroom is OK but the standard could be improved to match the rest of the hotel and room. Excellent breakfast buffet. Friendly and helpful staff.

Have used this hotel several times over the years and have always been impressed by the staff, service and location. Stayed here before its refurbishment and enjoyed it but after the refurb the rooms are far more comfortable and modern and the building appears to have regained that Grand superiority it lacked prior to refurb. Brilliant location in central Odense... More

I stayed for 2 days in January 2015 on a business trip. The hotel is in a central location. The rooms are spread out quite broad within the 2 buildings owned by the hotel so it can be a bit difficult to find your room the first day. The staff were friendly. The decor is nice. My room was very... More

Nice central location near the station , shops and restaurants. The stile is kept in same style as the building, the same is the incident with the the beds. But they are comfortable. Nice with a cup of coffee and a cookie when we arrived. Nice breakfast.
