“Great hotel if you get a decent room”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

Loved the location of this hotel, stayed for two nights. Unfortunately the hotel room was very small and dark, we had the smallest window - more like an air vent the size of a catflap, this made the room extremely dark and stuffy as not a lot of air got through due to the window opening up onto other walls - therefore we also had no view of anything at all.
The pillows could do with updating as they were extremely lumpy, bed was standard. We were supposed to have tea and coffee making facilities in the room but we didn't have them which was a shame as they state that every room does have them. We had some other friends who stayed at this hotel and they got a lovely size room which was bright and airy with a huge window opening up onto the Main Street - much better than ours. So make sure you ask and try avoid room 109 at all cost!! Staff are great and very helpful.

Just what we needed. Great location and great staff. Room could have done with a lick of paint but it was great. No shower curtain though which meant the floor got very wet. Breakfast was amazing - perfect!

The hotel is ideally placed for most of the tourist attractions. Just a short walk from the Central Station and a stones throw away from Dam Square.
Our room was quite compact but the bed was very comfortable and everything spotlessly clean. There was no tea making facility in the room but if you ask at reception they will lend you a kettle for a refundable 20euro deposit. You can then get free tea bags etc from a vending machine.
Breakfast was good with a wide range of foods on offer. There was continental as well as scrambled eggs. DIY toast and bacon.
We would certainly come back another time.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that does not overlook the busy main street as it could be noisy. We did and it was l...

I have nothing really bad to say about this hotel except it's more a B&B than what I recognise as a hotel - no bar, restaurant or coffee shop only drinks( hot and cold) from a vending machine. The bed was comfortable but I prefer a double bed and would have requested a move if I'd have been staying longer than 3 nights. The room was clean and there was a TV with BBC 1&2 which was not expected. There was only a small cupboard with 3 coat hangers and a couple of shelves (again only suitable for a short stay). There was liquid all purpose soap gel and if you don't like getting your hair wet take a shower cap.The breakfast was good in both quality and choice and with a 3 hours dining slot. The staff were helpful and amiable.

Came here with my old school friends and was impressed by reception on initial entry. Up to our triple rooms; little better than expected. Turned down my bed, found dried blood (that wasn't mine) on the sheets. My friends started unpacking, and found a used Band-Aid on the floor, once again not ours. But, there was a lovely huge window that opened up completely onto the street. Breakfast was traditionally continental, DEFINITELY recommend the potatoes because oh my they are beautiful. Easy to check in and out, pretty good staff (although they still didn't change my sheets after I asked them to), just the hygiene standards need to be rethought quite considerably!

A number of historic buildings make up the Avenue Hotel. Part of these premises even dates back to the 17th century.

The rooms are divided over the different parts of the hotel so they all have a unique style and shape. You can reach all floors by elevator. Our 3 star-hotel has 82 comfortable rooms.
