We stayed at the Palace Hotel for 5 nights. While the room was quite comfortable and the breakfast excellent, a few issues crept up. But first, the positive: one can not find a better central location. Importantly, it is only 700 meters from the rail station (note, those flying in should take the train then walk from Central Station). Once at the station, walk! During the day, it will cost up to 90 krone (about $15) and will take as long or even longer than walking. Likewise, the train is convenient for other travel around the country or even to nearby Sweden. The staff was friendly and generally helpful. Danes can speak English better than some Americans.
Our major problems were maintenance related. First, a light bulb had to be replaced, and that took a day. Second, there were numerous plumbing issues which not have even been occurring. Those took several days to rectify. For a 4-star hotel, none of these issues should have existed. We had to ask housekeeping for Kleenex (the box was almost empty). Finally, the tub is slippery without hand bars to help. They will not provide a rubber mat.
One final problem over which the hotel has no control is the Radhuis (city hall) clock. The tower is just across the street. From 12 midnight to 7 am we get bells every 15 minutes plus the hourly gongs. Trying to keep windows opened and sleeping is not a great idea.
