Stayed two days in First Grand Hotel and first impressions were great. Check in was friendly and efficient and within 2 minutes... More

They dont give you a receipt when you ask for it....so dont be a business traveler !. It have never happen to me before in any other danish hotels. So never pay upfront, then you dont get any receipt on your stay.

This is a nice old classic hotell, the rooms are abit worn down, and there is no AC in the rooms so yoy have to have windows open( and the street under could be noisy in the night), make sure to get a room in the top floors.

A well situated hotel which quaint styling. Rooms were clean and nicely presented. However the bathroom was a shocker. The shower is located above the bath and had about as much pressure as a leaky bucket. So in summary all good apart from the bathrooms and lack of air conditioning.

Very nice hotel and staff, excellent location, walking distance to shops, pubs and restaurants. The restaurant was very good as well as the bar. Wifi signal could be stronger but overall I was very pleased with the hotel, I'll definitely come back

As long as your GPS can tell a walkway from a roadway you'll be able to find it easily. Otherwise go the town train station first and then GPS your way. Parking is widely available as well as dining and shopping. I like the expansion area the best but the top floor rooms have plenty of charm.

hotel reception is not that warm, and under manned. some strange ups and downs stairs in between, therefore could be tricky with a big luggage desdpite there's elevators in the hotel. But position is quite nice, not far from MAIN train station, within 10mins walk, right next to shopping / pedestrians walks. Close to the Anderson Museum too. Except the... More

Everything was fine, the Hotel is not one of these new artificial buildings, it`s atmosphere is impressive. We liked the huge rooms, the friendly atmosphere an the feeling being in the time of H. C. Anderson.
