“Characterless, modern, efficient.”
Reviewed November 15, 2013 via mobile

It's a brand new hotel that will date really badly. On the design front they've tried far too hard with, for example, big green glass panels in bathrooms that will look awful within 3 years.

The accommodation doesn't feel in any way warm, cosy or welcoming, but the big rooms do their room extremely efficiently. If you just want a business hotel it's perfect: if you're here privately it disappoints.

Breakfast was excellent, as was dinner (though again the restaurant atmosphere is bland and unwelcoming).

The staff were as cold as everything else: a perfect match for the characterless place.

Dear PeterEde7,
we are glad to know that you enjoyed your breakfast and dinner in our restaurant Pier 16 and therefore we say "Thank you".
Using insulting language towards people doing a very good job in our hospitality business should not be part of a rating - it makes a comment just trashy.
Kind regards,

We stayed one night at the hotel waiting for the boat to Oslo the next day.
The rooms are quite big and very nice. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the location excellent very clost to the harbour. We had dinner in the restaurant, and the food and the service were great. The breakfast was also top notch. In sum a very nice hotel well worth the money.

We stayed here for a weekend. We had a smokers room which did not have an ash tray which was rather annoying and is kind of weird too. The hotel is very close to the city centre, taxis, railway and harbour. The hotel seemed clean and quiet. The breakfast was very nice. Although we found the staff was a bit snobby when we asked where the cutlery would be and we just a rather looking down on us reply that it was at the table, this was before we were seated.

Dear Jonavfc85,
thanks for your response with good references and a surprising complaint.
The reason for having no ashtrays in our guest room is that we do not have any smokers guest rooms at all and smoking inside is not allowed.
We think that smoke is not in line with the aim to have a good and healthy sleep, especially for non-smoking guests following you.

Adjacent to the railway station, it is within walking distance of many sights. It is modern, very clean and has a nice ambiance. My room was right on the square opposite the railway station, and I was surprised at how quiet it was at night.
The restaurant was expensive but worth the price with some very well cooked and presented food. The buffet breakfast was terrific.

Well worth your Money, if you want to stay in a modern clean hotel. It has all the Things you could want, gym, spa, good restaurant, wine cellar, good bar, parking, central location, free WiFi. What more could you want? Yes you could want a top notch breakfast, the hotel has that too. In fact the breakfast is so good that it is difficult not to overeat.
The staff is polite and efficient so I recomend this hotel despite the price. have stayed there on at least three occasions,
we will definetively go back there.

Spent 1 night here on our way to Denmark. It was a fairly pricey option - 2 rooms (one standard, one superior) cost £290 for both - but we stopped off last minute, so not really a surprise.
We were blown away by the hotel, which is right by the harbour and opposite the train station. Beautiful room with everything you could need - comfy bed, lovely soft pillows, spotlessly clean and an amazing shower in the rather super bathroom. All new and fresh and sparkly.
The roof terrace bar was another winner, we had some lovely cocktails watching the sun set - it's a great place to unwind after a day travelling.
We also ate in the hotel restaurant, which was also excellent - as another reviewer said, the Caesar salad with beef was excellent. My dad had gherkin soup - unusual but very tasty! We also loved the smokers bar where we could smoke our cigarettes in the comfort of a nice, sealed room and not upset other diners.
It was an expensive experience but very well worth it for a lovely experience.
We had a fantastic nights sleep and were sad to leave this lovely hotel behind. Thank you Atlantic Hotel!

I stayed at the Atlantic--Kiel recently on a business trip to the University there. My room was great---large, airy, comfortable, luxurious. I was very happy there and looked forward to returning each night.

Also, I hosted several events (2 large dinners, 2 smaller lunches) and found the food, menu, service and overall experience entirely wonderful. The included breakfast was varied and delicous as was my room service food (some of it ordered at very late hours, due to my jetlagged state).

I would gladly return and most highly recommend this hotel to friends and colleagues. All the staff I had the occasion to interact with--front desk, room service servers, restaurant servers, catering managers, housekeeping staff---were professional, helpful, friendly, and kind.

























I would gladly return

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a high floor for a great view of the harbor.
