“Enjoyed big room”
Reviewed 4 November 2011

I really enjoyed my stay in the big room of first hotel grand. You will not feel as all other modern hotels are there now days, but it is worth trying at least once. Breakfast was excellent and staff was very friendly.

We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel. Excellent bed, friendly staff and a good breakfast/restaurant, especially the desserts!

Was ok, but not worth the money.
Staff were friendly. Breakfast was excellent.
But room was rundown. Holes in the ceiling, shower head rusty and filthy, with rust all over the bottom of the shower. Bed was uncomfortable and 'itchy'. Probably caused by the temperature. The room got very warm, and we couldn't open the window due to noise from the street.
It looks grand, which was fun and added charm, but you can't just rely on that, it needs more.
Needs air conditioning and more modernising (showers, lifts, entrance directly to tower 2) before it can justify the high price.

I was booked into the FHG by a conference organiser. It is about a 10 minute walk from the train station, if that. Check-in was efficient and all the staff were very friendly and polite. I paid extra to get a better room than the one I'd been booked into. Although there was no view as the room was at the back of the hotel, the room was pretty quiet (with just very occasional traffic noise). The room was reasonably sized with attractive furnishings and a stylish wooden floor. The bed was extremely comfortable - possibly the best bed that I've ever slept in. The bathroom was large, clean and bright. My only regret was not having time to sample the breakfast which, I was told by another guest, was very good. Next time.

Room Tip: Check if the room has a view and if it is a long way from the reception desk.

Odense Grand is a beautiful hotel that has been lovingly restored and now has a modern twist with lots of period charm. Rooms are comfortable, especially the beds that are truly divine. However avoid this hotel on hot or freezing days because of poor ventilation and single pane windows that don't do much in terms of insulation. Very good breakfast, nice bar, excellent location in town centre. Not really cheap so look out for special deals and book online!

Beautiful hotel in a great area in Odense. Room was clean, but it was a long walk to the room. Next time (and I would stay there again) I would ask for a room closer the the only entrance.
Shopping and several restaurants are right there.

Have just returned from this hotel and found it just be just the place we were looking for, whilst visiting my son who is working in Odense. Very central for both shopping and restaurants. The rooms were spacious and clean, bed very comfy, downside was the bathroom which could do with updating but still clean.
Breakfast was delicious with lots and choice and unlike other guests we didn't find the dining room over crowded at this time of year. The rooms did tend to be quite warm but as the weather was horrendous this did not become an issue but can imagine it to be over bearing on a hot summer night.
Would definately recommend this hotel for anyone looking to stay in the heart of the city.
