“Good location, old fashoned hotel”
Reviewed 15 April 2012

Helnan Phoenix is nicely situated on the main thoroughfare in Aalborg and close to both shopping and bar areas as well as the conference center.
The hotel is old and it shows - it doesn't feel like being upgraded for a long time. And it shows as well. The restaurant has old style Danish food, and the breakfast is kind of boring.
But the rooms are clean and functional, although the layout sometimes is illogical, especially with the huge, old tv on the cupboard in the middle...
There's free wifi throughout the hotel.

I stayed here for one night as part of a group of three. The hotel was nice, but nothing really made it stand out for me. The rooms were clean and big-enough for an overnighter, the staff were polite and spoke very good english, the breakfast selection was varied and the rooms have access to WiFi.
As far as location, there is a short walk to the centre of Aalborg so no noise polution from nightclubs which is a plus as the windows aren't massively soundproof (although adequate for the location).
In all, I would only book into this hotel again if I was staying for one or two nights, If I was staying longer I would have to book somewhere a bit more special.

We booked online for 1 night only. Although above our price range ( this cost us $200aus pn) I was very happy with the hotel. The decor was traditional and "regal" in style. Our room was super large, as was the bathroom. Everything worked perfectly. The bed was very soft and Internet was provided in the rooms. At breakfast all tastes were catered for. Staff were friendly, and their English was good . Location was very central, and the hotel provides parking.
Two minor gripes : firstly there. is no drinking water provided in the room. Secondly and more importantly although there is a lift provided by the hotel to floors there are a number of steps to be navigated when entering from the car park, and to some of the rooms.. There are no ramps, so this is difficult for the elderly or handicapped with luggage.

Good looking hotel, in the old style.
Good breakfast, many sorts to pick.
Rooms look nice, but they are not large.
It's close to the bars and shopping central zone.
No bathtub, just shower.
Staff at the hotel is helpful, you can ask for wake-up call, for taxi reservation in the morning, for breakfast to take-away.
I didn't like at all the pillows - of the cheapest kind :) I had to use the other blanket to rest my head on.
The free internet connection sucks too :)

We stayed in this old but nice hotel in november, and we liked the location best. In the middel of Ålborg center. Here you can park the car in the backyard and walk around in the oldcity. The restaurant is good, but we had dinner out in the city, because it was to empty. Breakfast was also good. As its usualy are in Denmark.
The room was ok. We will surly be back another time.

When I am on business travel I always prefer to stay in places that carry some part of the history of the city they are in. The Phonix seems to be such a case, it just melds with the surrounding city and gives you a nice, warm feeling.
I have stayed here many times and never had an issue with staff or the rooms. Furthermore, the hotel is practically in the town center and you get easy access wherever you need to go.
The hotel is easily recommended for busyness!

Old-school hotel. A bit worn here and there but location is good and staff are friendly and service you well. Secure parking at the back of the hotel (dkk 75 extra).

Did not try the restaurant - there are loads of good places to eat in Aalborg, but is seemed a little dark and empty. Breakfast was included in the price and lived up to my expectations.
