  • 8.0.Very good

    Beautiful hotel - but no parking.

    All great, except parking. “Parking available” implies “free” and “at site”. This was a search for parking and then up before the parking cops arrived to pay.

    Perfect location, excellence staff

    Great stay, perfect location, excellence service, nice room. Very soft beds, nice to have fridge in the room, and to be able to make tea & coffee in the room. We missed a free shelf or some hooks in the bathroom for toilet bags etc.The curtains could not be completely closed, so we were awakened early by the sunlight. Staff was very serviceminded and kind. All in all a great stay!

    Hotel Royal has charm and character. The staff is top-notch, very friendly and knowledgeable (Lars and Jens). We loved the custom cocktails made for us in the Atrium lounge too. We will return when we visit Aarhus again.

    Really amazing old hotel with tons of character and in an ideal location. Mattresses weren’t great and pillows were poor and issues with the WiFi. The property itself was in great condition and I will definitely stay there again.
