“Waterfront Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

A lot of effort has been made to make this hotel as nice and comfortable as possible with upgraded furniture and furnishings. It is located right on the boardwalk and waterfront of Christiansted. You are steps from restaurants, shops, the quaint old town, the national historic fort, seaplane dock, scuba dive boat, the $5 shuttle boat to the hotel beach on the island, the Buck Island tour boat and the fishing fleet. Walking through old town was interesting with many shops, but caution about so many steps and uneven sidewalks. This hotel is situated perpendicular to the boardwalk, therefore, there are only 2 rooms that actually face the water and those are 215 and 315. We stayed in 215 for a week and really enjoyed the covered balcony with nice furniture, stepping out our door to the pool deck and watching all the activities of the waterfront. The room was large with a comfortable king bed, nice and clean with title floors and a kitchenette. The two manageable problems were the kitchen noise from Angry Nate's restaurant below and the toilet which operated on island time. Each time we called down to Nate's and asked, they lowered the noise from the boom box and apologized. Their food was delicious and always offered fresh fish right from the boats on the dock. The maintenance man said, yes the toilet is slow. We did not drink the tap water because it comes from a rain cistern in which they add chlorine. Bottled water is for sale in many shops for $2 a gallon, recommended for drinking and coffee. If you don't wish to climb stairs, a ground level room would be nice. Any of the rooms in this hotel should be fine and comfortable. The housekeeping staff were great and very accommodating. The free Wifi worked great and stayed loaded which we appreciated because we kept our cell phones on Airplane mode to avoid roaming charges and communicated by email. The room phone has free local calls up to 30 min which is handy for calling a tour company, taxi or Nate's. This hotel does have nightly roaming security and we felt safe, but like anywhere don't leave valuables lying around and don't walk in dark alleyways at night. This room did have a safe. With so many things easily accessible we did not rent a car and preferred not to try driving on the left in an American car with the steering on the left. Instead we took Sweeny's Tour and the free shuttle on Tuesday to Divi Resort and Casino at Carina Bay in Rudy's Taxi. This was enjoyable and we had a lovely lunch by their pool beside a beautiful beach. The island bus is available for $2.50 and a great way to tour the island or go shopping with US dollars. The room frig did have a small freezer space so we had the taxi to stop, for an extra charge on the way from the airport,at Plaza Extra to purchase drinks and snacks. Taking the stairs down to Nate's for a lovely meal by the water or picking up take out to bring back to our balcony was wonderful. This was a relaxing enjoyable vacation at the Holger Danske Hotel, Christiansted, St Croix.

Room Tip: For waterfront view ask for # 215 or 315. If you do not want to take the stairs ask for a ground fl...

We went to St. Croix to visit their three national park units.
St. Croix is a lovely island, full of friendly people. Nowhere is this truer than at the Holger Danske Hotel. It is located right on the boardwalk, downtown. It's clean with all the amenities. If you don't get a room with a view, just go downstairs to the boardwalk and the view will be amazing.
The Holger Danske caters to groups of Danish visitors coming to see their history. So you can believe that everything works. And if something doesn't, they will fix it right away. Oh, and the price is very reasonable.
Now, if I can only find another reason to go back to St. Croix/

Room Tip: No need. Just go downstairs for an amazing view

This hotel has a very good location if you plan on staying in Christianssted. It is very next to the harbour-walk with a few restaurants and shops. It has a pool looking over the harbour.
It provides free parking but without a car/taxi etc. there is not much to see or do in Christianssted.
The rooms have a small balcony but the rooms look quite dated and old. A small renovation would easily give 4 stars.
But i would recommend the hotel if you stay in Christianssted.

I got to St Croix for business on Oct 23 returning on Oct 24. The rooms have wi-fi, a table and TV (the old big ones). The rooms need to be updated since the looked worn but I didn't mind cause i was just there for one night on business. The room was cleaned and I felt safe.

Great hotel, perfect location, huge room, must be 20'x20' not including bathroom, clean, comfy bed, hotel staff very informative. Refrig, microwave, coffee pot. Internet was great on wifi, they do have wired internet if needed, never needed it, Parking is small, but anywhere on the islands parking is always sketchy, park where you can, nobody seems to mind where you park. great restaurant, Angry Nate's, perfect food!!! you are steps away form the pier. Would stay here for any trip to St Croix.

Room Tip: I like first floor rooms, being a business trip, have a lot of things to take in and out of hotel...

I love to travel, and would rather spend money on experiences than hotel rooms. I look for clean, safe and convenient, preferably all with a great price. The Holger Danske provided it all. The rooms were comfortable, the ladies at the front desk were helpful and kind, the cleaning lady was there everyday to tidy up, and it was a perfect base from which to launch our adventures. Stepping outside our door, we saw every beautiful plant and tree that grew on the island lining the path. I'd happily stay there again.

Recently stayed in the Holger Danske in Christiansted for 4 nights. Booked a King Bed room and was given the ground floor room #108. We enjoyed the privacy of the closed-in patio as opposed to the open ones on the upper floors. The only rooms with a good, unobstructed Harbour View are #215 and #315. We didn't mind not having a view inasmuch as we were only a few steps from being on the Boardwalk. There is no elevator on the premises so the ground floor room was a blessing to these senior citizens. Room was very clean and everything worked well except the Internet. We were given a small router for the room but could never get it to work. Others were having the same problem while we were there. We were able to access the internet on our IPad from the Hotel Lobby. Did not experience water pressure problems that precious reviewers had mentioned. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay again!

Room Tip: Beware of mosquitoes on the Boardwalk at dusk. They are ferocious!
