Location: fairly central. Most things are in walking distance. Noisy, and the rooms can be quite small plus you will definitely notice that it is an old hotel. Very small beds. The standard of some of the rooms matches the far cheaper CabInn. You can find much better alternatives in the same price range.

Stayed for two days on a business trip in September and chose this as it was close to the venue I was attending. It's across from the central station and there's plenty of restaurants, bars and shops close at hand. The hotel offers private parking at DKK99/night, which was great as I had a rental and no idea where to... More

I choose this place only because of its location- which is super close to the train station. The bus comes to the front of the hotel. This hotel has so much potential for being great but somehow it prevents you from relaxing as the rules need to ease up-- breakfast closes at 9:00-- check it at 10:00-- why not have... More

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in early August. It is very conveniently located, being about a block from the main railway station and many buses stop nearby. Rooms and beds are comfortable and the buffet breakfast was excellent. Staff were pleasant to deal with.

The hotel has an excellent location, a couple of minutes walk from the main train station, where the airport bus stops. The Aros art gallery and the concert hall are a very short walk away, and it is easy to walk into the shopping streets, cathedral etc. Buses for other destinations stop almost outside the hotel (e.g.18 bus to Moesgaard...
