The hotel is in an ideal location but parking was an issue. Our room was large and beautifully decorated. The bathroom was spacious with a separate tub and shower. The buffet breakfast was excellent. Unfortunately a pub (nightclub) was across the street from our room and the noise from its young patrons made it difficult to get a good night's... More

What a DREADFUL experience! Booked a superior room - ended up in a small room in the bottom of a small courtyard with a NOISY aircon-machine right outside the window. Little did the room-aircon help, as this was twice as noisy. The hallway to the room smelled TERRIBLY. Breakfast was poor. But the WORST was, that we forgot a pair... More

Stay 3 nights for business trip. Hotel is well located in center or Aarhus. Breakfast was good. Kitchen and bar close at 10 pm. Room was very clean. Not modern as it is an historic hotel style. No parking which was not good. You have to find your own spot. Shower is small like other Danish hotels. Hotel is for... More

The Royal is a bit of a kitsch museum, a working 1908 lift in the foyer and walls covered with mediocre murals. The rooms are quaint and dressed up with art, but the plumbing is in need of attention. On my first morning there the shower flowed over and the room flooded. There is a constant smell of sewers from... More

I stay in hotels all over the world, and I LOVE Trip Advisor because it helps me avoid bad experiences in hotels. Last time I was in Aarhus, I stayed in Radisson Blu. That was a very "standard" experience, good quality, OK food, OK room, OK bed, OK location. Because it was "OK" but not superb, I wanted to try... More

Right in the heart of the city, this wonderful old style hotel is a joy to stay in. Helpful staff, glorious rooms, gold themed bathrooms, it has a palatial feel. It is a privilege to ride the oldest lift in Northern Europe, it even has a chair! The stairs are wide and gracious with amazing murals. Breakfast is a wonderful... More

It is very rare in these modern times to find a place like this. True, some will put "lipstick" on an old inn and not get it right. Major kudos to the operator and staff of The Hotel Royal Aarhus for combining old world charm, technology, cleanliness and loads of class. Really wish I could bring my family here for... More
