Nice Old style Hotel with big and clean rooms. Friendly staff at the reception. Good restaurant at the lobby. Good internet connection but table is small for business traveler. A distant away from the train station but manageable.

Good central location in the town center 5 minutes walk from station. The lobby, the dining room, the staircase, corridors .... everything of the hotel exudes grandeur. Yet it is also in many ways past glory! The lack of double glazing explains the nuisance of noise from outside n some rooms, paintwork has seen better days, windows can not be... More

Lovely characterful old hotel: high ceilings, large dining rooms with impressive columns, relatively up to date rooms with super comfortable beds. Baths available (uncommon in Denmark). Gorgeous cocktail bar. Impressive breakfast. Parking 50 meters away at the Q park, the hotel has the top floor. Remarkable feature.... That the hotel serves Honey from its own rooftop bee hives. Service was... More

Stayed at this hotel a few times as my Company makes the travel arrangements. Hotel is nice, but over rated. I stayed in the "Grand Suite" for two nights just recently. Shower was in-operable. Plug for the bath didn't fit the hole in the bath ?!?! Food is highly over priced, along with the beverages. Staff are always very pleasant,... More

A really terrible or a really excellent hotel is easy to review. It is in fact hard to describe a hotel that is close to being very good but is in the end quite bad. And this is the case with the First Grand. A place which still has single beds that are hard for adults to sleep in, a... More

Located centrally in Odense this hotel gave good service and value for money. Beautiful old buildning which has retained some pleasing details such as old paintings, staircases etc. Friendly staff, cozy bar, excellent breakfast and large rooms.

This is a great hotel, well located withing walking distance of the railway station, and right on the restaurant/cafe strip. We walked everywhere. On our first night when we both used the shower, a sewer blockage became evident and flooded the bathroom. I accept that such things can happen - it is how they're dealt with that's significant.

After a drive from Esjberg we needed a friendly welcome and we got one, in fact we were greeted with a smile and a friendly welcome every time we passed through reception. The room was very spacious and had a good modern feel to it despite the old (but in a good way) look of the rest of the hotel.... More

It is a gorgeous historic building at the heart of Odense. The staff is very nice and helpful. Unfortunately, the good things end here, at least for me. The room HVAC system is not good. The toilet is the problematic part. In my room (220), the toilet bowl is tiny and the seat is SIGNIFICANTLY bigger than the bowl. Flushing... More
