Stayed here for several nights on a business trip. The hotel is fairly large and located on the western outskirts of the city, one benefit is free parking. It’s kind of like an upmarket Travelodge, practical, provides the essentials but not upmarket.
The rooms are OK, the furniture is fairly modern (looks like IKEA) but some parts look a little tired e.g. bathroom, skirting, door etc. Don’t like the laminate flooring. My shower ran all over the bathroom floor – judging by the state of the bathroom door it wasn’t the first time. You’ll also find a small minibar, safe and TV. I noticed some suite type rooms which would have been nicer than my basic room.
There’s a small seating area, a couple of PCs and a small shop in reception, plus bar and large dining area that doubles as a breakfast room. Note: restaurant/bar not open Sunday evenings, though there were a couple of sandwiches in the shop fridge.
Free wifi throughout the hotel but could only get it to work in reception, a small gym (couple of running machines and a bike) in the basement.
Nothing of any interest apart from a petrol station near the hotel. Various places to eat in town but parking was a struggle, we ventured down to the harbour on one occasion where there was a good choice of places to eat – couldn’t really see anything of the harbour as it was dark and raining.
Final few things, Aarhus airport is quite a long way out of the city and taxis can be few on the ground outside the peak morning and evening times, there did look to be a bus but I’m not sure if it goes anywhere near the hotel. Check the restaurant/shop takes all credit cards as some only take Danish cards.
In summary, I would use the hotel again as it ticked enough boxes and I didn't have any problems, but if given a choice would pay a little extra for something nicer.
