Enjoyed my stay at this hotel. Location good - close to train station, cafes, restaurants and attractions. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

I can recommend staying at...

This brings its own disadvantages however in terms of noise - late night revellers kept me awake till the small hours (despite me having a room that overlooked what appeared to be an inner courtyard). I was booked in by my company, and found myself in a tiny room with...

Lovely rooms. Some with tub and some with shower. Old hotel, perfect location, nice staff and superb breakfast, dinner and wine not forget the delicious drinks. It is not a handicap suitable hotel, the elevator. A stay I will recommend!

Missing air-condition, but no other reminders. Personnel at the front desk was excellent and assisted voluntarily with out any problems.Also breakfast was served nicely in the old hall. I will use this hotel again in case I would be traveling to Odense.

A really well situated hotel with good and easy access to almost everything. Just 400 mts from the station and even the shopping street.The hotel has a great old world charm. It's like staying in a huge mansion and has a hugely spacious feel- quite unlike a hotel actually. The rooms were nice and big. Well the breakfast too hmm...

Somewhat of a journey from Parking to hotel and from reception to room. You need bags on wheel! The breakfast restaurant is ok and room standard too. The environment is fine and you have good suroundings to give you rest and relaxation

Old hotel with lots of atmosphere. An excellent room and dining experience - had both a nice dinner and a superb breakfast. The sweet service in the hotel made it a very good experience for our Group one- night business stay.

The hotel is old but has it's charm. It has spacious rooms, quite modern but already damaged edges and somehow dated. The bathroom was much too dark, impossible to shave. Wifi was free and fast. Breakfast was very good and free parking was available around the corner. (Free parking between 18.00 and 09.00)
