This is a "bang in the middle of town" hotel. Excellent staff and their knowledge of the locality is very good. No car park and you need a credit card to operate the parking machines outside the hotel.. Only 24 hours allowed per visit. The LIFT is a highlight, and check the reception desk.

The rooms are of good size and quality, and the breakfast was adequate. The place has charm about it; the elevator is particularly remarkable. The wifi wasn't strong in my room and the receptionist was very helpful with finding me a replacement room straight away. The only downfall with the experience was that I left a postcard with reception upon... More

We had not planned on staying at Aarhus but travel plans had changed and we needed a place late at night very last minute. We did have to switch rooms after the first night due to a leaky air conditioner but the hotel staff was very accommodating. Our second room overlooked the breakfast cafe area which we were very concerned... More

This hotel hasn't fallen for any cheap IKEA furnitures, but kept the old carpets and golden toilets. Still, you may surf their complimentary WiFi on the can just like in the good old days. Jokes aside, this hotel is both old fashioned, classy, charming and comfortable. And it's a perfect place to wake up each day when exploring the city... More

We booked a junior suite, but were upgraded to a larger suite: huge living room, good sized bedroom, large bathroom, with all rooms looked out onto the cathedral across the street. The windows open in all of the rooms! Hotels of this age are difficult to keep in tip top shape, so be prepared for a few things to be... More

If you're used to stripped-down Scandinavian design, the Hotel Royal comes as a shock: it's gilt, gilt, and more gilt, combined with plush carpets, chairs and bedding, set off by Northern Europe's oldest elevator. The hotel is lovely, all clean, fresh and seemingly newly-renovated. The breakfast buffet is one of the best I've had at any hotel.

We were a family of four traveling to Aarhus for two nights and what a treat it was to stay at Hotel Royal. Staff were wonderful, beds were comfortable, and suite was large and beautiful. My husband and I stayed in a separate bedroom while the children each stayed on extra cot in the living room. Even with two cots,... More

This is an excellent hotel in the center of Aarhus, within walking distance to the entire central Aarhus. The rooms at the hotel has high class with stylish armchairs, great paintings, very good beds, and gold ornamented faucets. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was simply great, very high quality of the ingredients, and again very friendly... More
