Hotel is centrally located and is situated near the bridge across Limfjord on the promenade. Half of the rooms therefore have "water" view, another half overlook parallel street. I think Radisson Blu can be considered "business oriented" hotel chain - it is not cheapest but quality is somewhat better than say Holiday Inns. It is in the middle of what can be described as "entertainment" district with several strip bars/night clubs and casino nearby (I was told area can become quite noisy at weekends).
Hotel is within easy reach from the Aalborg airport (taxi fare will be ~150 DKK). My room rate was ~120 eur/night
Judging by number of signed aircraft photos in the hotel lobby, it is frequented by military (esp. air force).
Room I received was overlooking the fjord and was quite small, but yet had everything needed - comfortable double bed, writing desk with chair and a minibar. Tea/coffee making facilities were provided. No water for free and water from minibar quite pricy (~4EUR for 0.5l and ~7.5 EUR for 1.5l). Bathroom was similarly tiny with the smallest shower cubicle I've ever seen. Every shower ended up as an exercise in battling shower curtain which tended to constantly stick to my feet. Toiletries were Radisson Blu standard - Anne Semonin.
Internet was provided through external supplier (Quadriga) with basic internet free of charge and "improved" internet for 99dkk/day. Basic internet was quite alright for everything including skype calls.
Breakfast was reasonably good with above-average spread of cold cuts, yoghurts/fruits/scrambled eggs/sausage/bacon. The only disappointment was coffee machine that produced only instant coffees.
Dinner in hotel's restaurant however was complete letdown with below average "Italian" food.
There was gym in the basement - rather small with 1 rowing machine, 1 bike, 1 treadmill and 1 elliptic trainer plus one weight exercise machine with hit and miss attendance - one day it could be completely empty, another completely full.
Checkout was fast and bill was accurate.
Bottom line - reasonable option to stay in Aalborg but have dinner elsewhere.
