Only stayed there for one night. Trouble at check in with my booking - some computer glitch, which was soon sorted out. They apologised and upgraded me to a suite. Wonderful service and the rooms were brilliant. So well appointed and everything to hand. Ate at the restaurant - a little expensive but the food was brilliant. Thoroughly recommended. Go...

Friendly staff, Minor shower, to small. Pay for parking. Good breakfast. Perfekt room. Located near to Aarhus train station. No balcony, not necessary in wintertime. Sometimes you have to park at the other side of the train station.

The good part: 1) It's location is central compared to the station 2) Their juice was ok The not so good part: 1) Not enough space to serve the amount of visitors at breakfast. 2) The rooms was cold 3) Very noisy because of...

Centrally located very near to Aarhus train station, shops and art gallery, The Mayor is a good place to stay for the main attractions found in the city. I have stayed in this hotel on a number of occasions though not recently and was pleasantly reminded of the Scandinavian room designs - clean, functional and comfortable- the bed was very...

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.

It was not me who staid on the hotel, but my family for three nights ! So Here I give a summary of their comments and my visits. The rooms were big, clean with nice comfortable beds. There was TV in german, english and nordic languages nothing to hear from outside. The bath seems new, not big but very friendly....

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...

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...
