“Wonderful beds, cozy ambiente”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

Small, friendly hotel in walking distance to any attraction in the town of Skagen. Newly restored, light and friendly rooms, awesome Hästens beds and linings. Great breakfast with different types of bread, spreads, cerials, meats, eggs and cheases. Only the bathrooms are a bit small and oldfashioned, but still functional, clean and not worn down.

Room Tip: Choose a room on th top floor with a balcony.

We stayed at Plesner only for one night unfortunatly as our holidays was too short. If we had the chance to come back we would stay for two nights to enjoy the nice town and the wonderful surroundings.
We were 2 couples and we booked 1 double room in the main building which was very nice and cosy. And we asked for a twin room for the second room. As they don't have any twins they gave us the suite for the same price. The suite has 2 connected double rooms with one bathroom and few sofas. It was perfect! Really nice! There were no other guests at that time due to the low season, so we had a perfect quiet night. The suite is on the main road, so I don't know if in the high season it gets very busy and noisy in the morning. However they have rooms on the other side as well.
One of the best things of this hotel (a part from the beatiful decoration and the clean and nice rooms) was the breakfast buffet! We had everything we could dream of! Perfectly presented. We only met one person from the staff: a very nice lady who warmly welcomed us.
I would say that this is a really perfect place to stay for a romantic trip. The only negative point is the lack of twin rooms.
The contact with the manager was also very friendly and we really appreciated the upgrade of the room.

I have been to Skagen last week and stayed over night at Plesner. Ofcorse it is a small hotel but nice and charming indeed. ^-^ Everything inside the hotel is totally new. The most important thing is the room's very clean and fresh. The room I booked is quite large with completely perfect design not too much and not too less. Friendly staff with service minded and great breakfast.

Hotel Plesner is a very precious small hotel which communicates the Danish lifestyle in each detail. A neat red brick building with large windows in the ground floor welcomes you in the middle of Skagen. Once you enter, you encounter a bright white world with charming, but minimalistic design and lovely simple decoration details. Find your way to the rooms through a cozy breakfast room, then wander through an inside beach-feel relaxing area and find your room by looking at the brass numbers on the wooden doors. The rooms are small and also furnished minimalistic, but contain everything one needs for a short break in Skagen. The only slightly negative experience was that the walls are very thin, so you could hear everything that was going on inside the hotel even when staying inside the room. But the fresh Skagen sea breeze makes you sleepy anyways, so it was nothing to complain about. Hint: Don't forget to buy some of the self-knit socks from the owner, they are awesome!

this had to be the absolute worst hotel we've ever stayed in. The room was tiny with absolutely no amenities. The hair blower had to be attached to two extension cords so I could use it while looking into the bathroom mirror. The TV had two channels, one totally in Danish and the othe had a program about sheep shearing. The shower was weak and even so, the bathroom floor was totally soaked after we used it.

We stayed here with friends who booked the hotel for a couple of days to get away from it all. The hotel is small and minimalist and the decor is pure scandinavian, clean and fresh looking.
There were paintings all over the walls (maybe one or two too many) for sale and yes the rooms are very basic. We were in room 1 which compared to our friends was huge. It had a balcony but the view was not good. The rooms were clean but little or no furniture that was of any use.
The bathroom was very small and the towels were pretty poor.
On a very positive note, the restaurant was excellent. Breakfast was a basic buffet and we had dinner on one night that was exceptional, truly one of the best meals I have had anywhere.

We had a room in a side building which had been rebuilt from a a workshop or a garage. Tried to change rooms but were told that they were fully booked. Very, very basic room, small with a good bed but no other furniture except 2 tiny wooden chairs. Midget TV was hung 2 meters up and had 2 channels. Nowhere to put clothes and hardly room for suitcases on the floor. Bathroom was more like a scullery. Breakfast was inferior to regular Danish standards. Main building had no lobby or other areas where you could sit down. Opening hours unpredictable and when we turned up for coffee at 4.45 PM we were told that they were closing in 20 minutes and could not come in. Guestts in this building were told to use the fire escape outside opening hours. For this we paid the equivalent of US$ 200 which is a rip-off. They call themselves a hotel but it is nothing more than a badly run B&B.
