Yes, this hotel is a bit dated, but the room we stayed in has recently been renovated. Too bad they decided to keep some almost antique details, like the radio in the bedside table (why? It doesn't even work!) and the ironing board. This made for a bit of a mix/missmatched feeling about the room. For the most part however it felt okay, adequate standard for a four-star hotel: comfortable beds, roomy bathroom with all the necesary ameneties, free wifi, clean and fresh. No ariconditioning, but the room didn't feel too warm in any way even with relatively high temperatures outside. Breakfast was copious, as it was in most of the Radisson Blu's we stayed in while in Denmark.
The location of the hotel is great: the centre of town and quite a lot of the sights are within walking distance.
Parking is free, but in a public parking lot. This is where we really felt screwed by the town of Odense when we left after our stay. Being polite we thought we'd leave some extra space for the car next to us, parking as close to the sidewalk as possible. But in doing this we missed a white line just next to the sidewalk and parked over that. While we in no way hindered anyone, the private company that deals with parking offences nevertheless fined us for this obviously "serious" offense. The staff of the hotel told us this happens a lot and cars with foreign license plates seem to be specifically targeted by this company - being easy targets. So make sure you park your car between the lines, even at the outer edges of the carpark!
