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

I was looking forward to my stay here but was very disappointed overall. The hotel is dated in need of urgent renovation and is dirty. Smelly pillows and disgusting toilets which should not be experienced in a fortunate and wealthy city hotel like this one. Pros: Very good location. Nice breakfast. Comfortable bed. Large room. Coffee and tea facilities. Cons:... More

I have written a review before - but now I had the chance to try the hotel again.... unfortunately with the same BAD experience. When trying to check-in (one hour after guarenteed check-in - which is at 14.00) there were no rooms ready. I was in a hurry - so asked if they could get me another room - but... More

I've visited here several times. Time to time they have discounted rate and its well worth taking if you need room in Arhus. Location is perfect. Hotel Royal serves great breakfast and casino is free for the hotel guests. Parking is sometimes an issue as the hotel doesnt have their own car park. However there are parking spots outside hotel...

The hotel is located centrally in Aarhus next to the dome and the shopping street. I stayed in the hotel one night on a business trip. The staff is friendly and the rooms are nice "royal" rooms. The breakfast was nice and with a good selection. Note that the hotel does not have its own parking but usually there is... More

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of vikings and the Danish past, and one gets the same feel in the rooms, which are very traditionally - or maybe rather outdated - furnished.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
