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

We spent two nights here and really enjoyed our stay. Our room was on the top floor overlooking the cathedral. Even with two camp beds for the children we had loads of space There's no parking but by purchasing the Aarhus card we were able to park for free at Pier One, which is only ten minutes walk away. There... More

We loved the hotel. It was like a little palace. My daughter was in awe. In fact, we were supposed to stay one night. I cancelled the next hotel that wasn't prepaid and stayed another night even though it was almost twice the rate of the next one that was booked way in advance. We took a taxi from the... More

Let me start by saying I would've liked to have given this hotel 3 1/2 stars. Hotel Royal has a great location and in my opinion, that is its greatest strength. The double room that my parents stayed in was huge with high ceilings, a sitting area and a bathroom equipped with a bathtub and a shower. My single room... More

Had a great stay at Hotel Royal. The rooms are spacious, decorated with antique furniture and the hall with big glass chandeliers. The staff was friendly but I found it a little bit strange in a four star hotel that there was only one person working at evening. Other than that it was wonderful and I hope to stay there... More
