Our four day stay was a splendid experience in a very comfortable (heated bathroom floors, no less!) and hospitable hotel. Breakfast was excellent, reception and other staff could not have been more obliging and the room (standard double) was opulent. Right in the centre of the arts area of the city, good eating places were easy to find and the... More

Stayed for 2 nights on business. The reception service is serviceminded and no fuzz at this very centrally located hotel. However, this is a "traditional" hotel with bad taste paintings of vikings and the Danish past, and one gets the same feel in the rooms, which are very traditionally - or maybe rather outdated - furnished. Some guests will probably... More

I stayed several times at this Hotel, enjoying every time. Starting from its location, right at City Centre, accross Cathedral and Theatre, plenty of restarurants, bars and night life, but still quiet for a good sleep. The Hotel itself is a jewel of old architecture with a tasty classic decor. The reception is ample and the staff very friendly. Wide... More

An excellent hotel located next to a cathedral. It has very big spacious rooms with very fast wifi. It is an excellent choice for a a business traveller looking to accomplish one or two things before stepping out. Would recommend it to any traveller. The only small blight are the lifts which are a little old but they work all... More

I was in Arhus on holiday for a couple of days in between Copenhagen and Hamburg. The hotel’s location is pretty good, in the Latin Quarter, across the street from Arhus Cathedral. In fact, it’s a straight shot down from the central train station, maybe three of four blocks away. The street that you take from the central train station... More

This hotel is a funny one, I'm not entirely sure if it's over the top or just old school in nature! When you enter the foyer the reception desk doubles as an aquarium, and the elevator is like something from a period drama. None of these are negatives by the way, I just wasn't expecting it! This is a beautiful... More

Although my stay was very brief, I greatly enjoyed the grandeur of this old hotel with modern service. The rooms are relatively large, furnished in a historic style, and the front desk service was excellent.

Great hotel, great Staff, great breakfast, need a bar or wine bar to be a complete urban hotel . Enjoyed the nice room thinking this is a hotel as hotels should be! An the city of Århus is a very inspiring place, a lot of public events and a cultural experience. Thanks! Ove A

Hotel is ok but would not consider royal rooms are very dark not much light offered. Shower is separate but you can see where woodwork is rotted near shower. Only one attendant at front desk, no porter to assist with baggage.

My husband and I stayed here for the second time. We stayed 5 nights. As always, the service was good, room was very nice and clean, housekeeping does a wonderful job. The rooms are big and spacious. I worked from the hotel each day and had plenty of room. Overall I still think this hotel is great but compared to... More
