“Nice, quaint hotel in a tourist town.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

Kronberg has an old world charm, quiet, clean, private. The prices are steep though because the town does not have any chain motels/hotels intown which keeps its rural, small town ambiance alive. It's the last hotel in a cluster from the nearest downtown street attractions. The staff was very helpful, especially when I had to call for a battery jump for my rental car. The free breakfast was so-so. Wi-fi was non-existent even though the desk said it was there. Tried several times to access it.

We were attending a wedding at a winery and stayed here in Solvang for a weekend. I expected a motel like experience, since that's what it basically looked like from the exterior, and I was pleasantly surprised when I walked into the second floor room. The room was fairly large with a vaulted ceiling, making it appear even bigger. There were sliding doors to a balcony facing the courtyard pool, and a large bathroom with stone countertops, nice toileteries and a jetted tub! There was plenty of closet space, fast WiFi which was free and the room looked newly renovated. The bed was very comfortable and the room was clean and quiet. We did not spend that much time in Solvang, but did walk from one end to the other, which only took about 20 minutes. Overall, it was a very pleasant stay!

Comfortable beds, quiet rooms. The pool is in a cute little courtyard. The tub was narrow but had jets. Overall, very satisfied with our stay. I thought the price was a little steep, but that's just Solvang I think.

Everything was very nice, we were pleasantly surprised! The staff was great, friendly, and helpful. The pool and jacuzzi were just right. It was quiet where we stayed in the back. The price was good. The hotel was great. For breakfast however, I suggest walking over to Paula's Restaurant with homemade orange juice, huge pancakes, and turkey sausage. The breakfast at Kronborg's is the standard continental, not bad. I would definitely go there again.

Room Tip: The hotel rooms in the back were pretty quiet, a little further away from the pool. Nice balcony...

The hotel looks really inviting and cosy. I asked for a room not facing the heavily trafficked road. Even though the hotel was more than half empty, we still got a room with the door facing the road, and the only room in the hotel with only half a balcony - the other half being part of the staircase. This meant that we were disturbed by people climbing the stairs late at night, as well as by the noise from the road - it was horrid! We could just as well have camped on the freeway.
So basically, we got no sleep at all. I found this especially annoying since I had asked for a quiet room. Maybe the receptionist wanted to punish us for that request?
The bed was extremely comfortable, so at least we could lie in bed reading since it was impossible to sleep.
The breakfast is for people who enjoy dry pastries in the morning.
The pool was very nice, but the spa was so dirty there was no way you would want to use it.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a door towards the parking lot and a balcony facing the pool if you want to have...

All the other highly recommended hotels in Solvang were booked except this one which made me wonder why. But the appointments were nice, the provided breakfast convenient, and the location if not ideal (almost the furthest hotel from central Solvang), was pretty easy walking distance to everything. Bonus: The mini mart next door was quite useful.
