We went to this hotel for a one night stay in Aarhus. The good things about this hotel is that is very well located to explore Aarhus. This is really great. Furthermore, it is a very nice old hotel in a great building. We had a terrific room with a great view on Aarhus. I feel the breakfast area could...

I can't but say that this is a beautiful original 'boutique' hotel. It was a very pleasant surprise with a super feel to it. More like old palaces, beautiful art all around the interior and beautiful furniture. Love their simple practical breakfast.. I recommend it the most in Aarhus

I stayed in this hotel for a couple of nights. The location is perfect: central but quite, you can easily walk to the train or bus station (5-10 minutes). The hotel is old but well preserved. The decoration is amazing, paintings and hundreds of details everywhere. The reception desk is a beautiful aquarium! Perhaps the hotel is a little bit...

This place is great -- perfect location, very nice rooms, "Scandinavian aesthetic" (paintings of plundering Vikings hang on the walls), good breakfast, and the building is grand and stately. Ignore the fact that there's a casino adjacent; this hotel is as classy as they come in Aarhus from what I could tell. I really enjoyed my stay here and would...

I believe this must be the most central located hotel in Aarhus. Everything is within walking distance. The rooms are very beautiful, and well maintained, and so the rest of the hotel. Breakfast buffet isn't huge, but still nice - and the small restaurant has very nice food, but limited choices. Only downside is the lack of parking option near...

After spending eleven nights st this fantastic hotel it is nothing to complain about.Miss the personal feeling and to say some kind of a ariety on the breakfast menu. The place is really amazing but be aware what room your are dedicated for. Try to avoid the rooms facing the casino and the restaurant floor as an example.

You feel transported to former glory with banqueting hall and royal incense when you check in at the Hotel Royal in Aarhus. The nearness to the Cathedral inspires a certain respect and helps to raise expectations. You will be kindly received, and we were assigned a room overlooking the church and the street life on the square. The room was...

Don't consider going here for the weekend, as you have a great chance to get to sleep not before 2.00am. The rooms are not sound proof at all and in weekends they intend to have wedding parties - you can hear the music of the band very clearly when in your room. Furthermore it's really an old fashioned hotel -...

the hotel is perfect location to the old town and for wandering around and great restaurants and shopping nearby. Aahrus the hotel is beautiful - antique with a very very old elevator. the staff were very helpful - the only drawback is if you leave your very heavy key and no one is at the front desk- you have to...

Only stayed for the one night but was blown away by the decor throughout. Every wall is adorned with paintings, murals, mirrors etc. The main lobby/reception area incorporates a salt water aquarium and there is an old (very old) lift. Rooms are comfortable and clean, WiFi is free and good. Breakfast is good offers a wide selection. The hotel is...
