“Sub-par in every way”
Reviewed 21 July 2011

The hotel is relatively cheap, but don't expect any value for your money. The rooms are tiny with uncomfortable narrow beds (almost impossible not to fall out of). We paid for an upgrade to avoid having to use bunk beds, but that was probably a mistake.

There are absolutely no amenities in the rooms, and the bathroom is cramped with only a curtain separating the shower from the rest of the room. In consequence, the whole bathrooms is filled with water when you shower.

When we arrived, our keycards didn't work. We went down to the reception, got them replaced, and suprise - still didn't work. The third set worked for a day, and then they were also disabled.

The reception staff are friendly but not very helpful.

The location is nice in the middle of Aalborg, but there are plenty of other hotels in the same area. You'll probably be better off trying one of them instead of cabinn.

Room Tip: Avoid getting one

Good location; part of a mall with large underground parking, however extremely expensive to park for more than 3 hours. Why has the hotel not negotiated a special guest rate - the car park was almost empty. Parking there for the weekend would have used up the saving that we made by staying here rather than at a more expensive hotel (our Aalborg friends showed us where to park nearby for free). Rooms are in the style of a ships cabin. We upgraded to a Commadore room, which was barely large enough for two adults with 2 airline bags. The tiniest room I have ever stayed in, even on board ferries. I have no idea how 2 people would fit into a smaller, standard room. Front of house is nice, as is breakfast area, and breakfast. BUT there is potentially a security problem. The rooms are on floors accessed from the same stair well as the car park - i.e. outsiders can enter the bedroom corridors from the car park without passing reception. Similarly, the guests pass through the bare stairwells, where outsiders could easily hide. As a minimum, there should be security locks (activated by the usual key-cards) to make the hotel corridors secure and CCTV in the stairwells. Overall very disappointed - for 200 Kr (£20/$30) more, we could have had a real room in a real hotel. It was not particularly low price and everything in the room had a feeling of being pared to the bare bones.

Reviewed 27 December 2009

Booked a standard room for 1 night directly through the hotel for 675 DKK excluding breakfast as third party booking vehicles did not seem more competitive.

Excellent location close to shopping, restaurants and the harbor. Around 10 minutes/160DKK taxi ride to AAL airport. Breakfast is 60 DKK and starts at 0700hrs. Not able to review it as it was too late for our flight.

You get what you pay for in terms of seize of the room, especially the bath room is very small. Seems like the standard rooms are not bigger than the economy rooms; the only differences is an extra bed (mattress on the floor) and coffee making facilities. Internet was free but did not use it.

In general a good option (for a solo traveler) if you just need a place to stay for a couple of nights. Couples might find the room seize problematic for longer stays.
