I have stayed here a few times before as the location is perfect and I also always used to think the price was very fair. But it is starting to look quite worn. The carpets in the reception is stained and in my room there were big patches as well.. So even if the rooms are large and the breakfast... More

I booked the "weekend royal" package deal online as a weekend break whilst working. It included a standard room & 3 course meal. The emailed confirmation was for a single room? When I arrived I was told it was a single room without meal. I had to show the receptionist the deal I'd booked on my laptop in the reception.... More

My first impression when I arrived at the hotel: WOW. It is like stepping in History. I got to the room and I was amazed I got the Junior Suite. The room - the apartment - is so huge that it started feeling spooky at night. :) Many artifacts, pictures on the whole makes you feel like part of something.... More

I went with a friend and requested 2 superior rooms, I insisted on a very quiet room. We arrived at 12h30 pm, only one room was ready so we put our luggage in the room and went to lunch. When we came back I opted for the smallest of the 2 rooms overlooking a glassed inner courtyard....it was very quiet,... More

Despite the stained carpet in the hotel's common areas, my first impressions of the hotel were positive. However, I liked the hotel less and less the longer we stayed. Location: The hotel is located in the central part of town and was within very short walking distance of great cafes and shops. Still, despite being in a non-street facing room... More

My husband and I stayed here for one week while he was on a work trip. We had a suite room and it was nice and big with a separate seating area and a desk which was perfect since I worked from the hotel all week. The bed is comfortable, not a big fan of the pillows though, woud like... More

I have spent one night here so far - took train from Copenhagen - nice gentle journey - The Royal is 2 minutes taxi or 10 minute walk. Its a classic hotel. Even has the old style lift. I have traveled on a budget, and for the same cost per night in Copenhagen (and rest of Scandinavia) this was an... More

Booked the hotel last minute, so didn't really know too much about the place (hotel or even the town) beforehand. What a great surprise! Great central location, large, comfortable rooms and old world Grand Hotel charm all around, except the front desk which was quite casual. Interesting paintings in rooms and corridors, good breakfast. Hard to believe there could be... More

Best location in the center of Aarhus. Large comfortable rooms in old style and nice staff ready to help with any inquiry. Breakfast to die for with lots of temptations. Don't worry about the church bells - the don't chime during the night.

This is the historic grand hotel in Aarhus. The latest major renovation was done quite a number of years ago, but in general the hotel is in good shape. The rooms are quite large and the junior suites very large. Ask for a room with a view of "Store Torv". Lots of artwork around the halls of the hotel. Lively... More
