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...

This is such a fantastic hotel. Company I was traveling with wanted to stay at the Ramada. Ugh. I didn't travel this far to stay at a chain. This place is historic and beautiful. Staff is helpful and pleasant. Surroundings are beautiful. Beautiful cathedral across the street. Plenty of great eating establishments within walking distance. Got a king room facing...

This hotel has an incredible over-the-top decor. Almost all walls are covered in paintings. Some of these are of historical or mythological scenes, some are modern. The entire reception desk is one big goldfish bowl, and the bathrooms are full of gilded surfaces. So, it is opulent and a bit over the top, but the room was large and breakfast...

- it simply do not work when it comes to the breakfast. And the hotel is aware about this fact. Way to many people and way to less employees to make sure breakfast is available for people when wanted. Instead of listing all the things about the breakfast that did not work (same situation both days) I simply recommend that...
