“Large room, terrible bathroom, very good breakfast”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2014

Our room wasn’t in the building that appears in the pictures, but in another one, across the Skagen station.
It looked like the place has been renovated recently, newly painted and new carpets. The room was OK, quite big and comfortable, but the bathroom horrible. No bathtub, not even a shower cabin. After taking a shower there was water all over the place, no place to hang towels or your change clothes. Not at all what you would expect for a four-star hotel and the price we paid for the room.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the main building, I guess the facilities are better there.

We originally booked at the Foldens Annex, upon arrival we were so disappointed. Surrounded by construction and it felt like we were in a warehouse district. However, the hotel staff changed us to another room in another building without any hesitation. They were very nice about it. Our new room was quaint and lovely. Nothing fancy but adequate for our needs. Even included a balcony. The building we were placed in was directly across from the train station so it was a great location, very close to the center of the town which is very pleasant and full of arts and crafts. Just wonderful
Room was clean, very basic and this is an older place. Some attention to details could improve it. However, if we return to Skagen, we would consider staying here again.
Breakfast was ok but was included so we were thankful for that.

We bought a package of accommodation with dinner and breakfast. The hotel is very basic, several places appear worn and outdated.
On the positive side: good location in the city center within walking distance to the different attractions. Great dinner & a friendly waiter. Clean rooms.
On the negetiv side: The hotel needs an upgrade with focus on indoors decor and attention to details.

Room Tip: Please note that some of the rooms are near the hotel bar which is very noisy. Pre-book a quiet room...

We came for the first time to Skagen in Denmark to stay at Folden Hotel & Cafe.
It was a smal hotel with a nice atmosphere and personal service.
Our room was small and cozy and the breakfast was wonderful.
We are looking forward to visit this hotel again.

Booked with short leadtime Foldens Hotel for a "Old-boys night out" in Skagen. On arrival the hotel had allocated room with double beds instead of twin rooms as desired. The hotel changed the room with a smile, no excuses - they changed it ! Rooms are simple but have an adequate decor and function for a sleep only hotel.
The breakfast buffet is OK - Not elaborate!
Here in summer time many norwegians are here, having theier spirts and beers embeed in the bréakfast - strange - but their choice!

We we were satisfied with this hotel - and will come back and use it as our base for night outs in Skagen !

Room Tip: Room 106 has an excellent exit to a huge joint terrace!

Upon arrival we were greeted by friendly and helpful staff.
The rooms were pretty and comfortable, although there were two blueberries on the floor by the bed - a possible sign of a lack of cleaning?!
The location was excellent, a few minutes drive from the sand dunes and lighthouse, and a walk into the main shopping/restaurant area, but at night the noise was annoying - loud people and cars. It didn't keep me awake though so it's not a deal breaker!
The breakfast was average, a decent selection, although could have done with more fruit, but that's just my personal choice!
Overall a good hotel to use as a base for sleeping, washing and eating! All you need when wanting to explore and sightsee! Would definitely stay again if I happened to come back to the area.

Stayed there for two nights in July. Our room in the annex was okay, clean and had everything we needed for the stay. The main problem was the noise from the hotel bar. Concerts every night til 2 a.m. The music was so loud we had to shut the windows and even then the music was way too loud to be able to sleep. With no air condition it became very hot! If plan to go to bed before 2 a.m. I'd recommend staying at another hotel.
