            Good service, nice location, central but very quiet

            Could do with more (international) TV channels - it is nice to have more options when you need to relax after a hard days work..... Nice if available: CNN, TVS News and more satelite channels with films in English.

            Location is good, but that's where the compliments end.

            Our room was incredibly hot, sleepless, even with the window open. When telling the front desk staff in the morning they said we should have rung and they would have wheeled a portable air conditioner in. Previous guests have written about the same thing. Fix it. All we ask is a good nights sleep.

            Very good location.

            Four star hotel with 2 star facilities. Shabby room with smell of smoking (no option to ask for a non-smoking room... probably all taken already). Floor was not properly hoovered and bathroom walls were starting to drop down piece by piece. All together: overpriced.

            Great location in central Odense, just next to primary shopping streets

            The room temperature turned out to be very hot during the night, and the morning after the receptionist only commented how unfortunate that sounded but did not convince us she would tell anyone or similar

            The 2nd room i was given. The evening meal in restaurant was superb & a good price. Best entrecote steak for a long time, great waiting staff.

            My 1st room although a single was tiny, when sat on toilet my knees touched the wall, no room in bathroom / toilet room 237. Woke by refuse bins being collected at 5.30 am too & tv only 5 channels all this £127/night. so they happily changed room for me when asked & this was much better. however the liftt kight didnt work for 2 days & i got stuck between 2 floors with no light. However the hotel staff were very good in sorting this & my room change.

            I had a very good experience at the hotel. They first were going to put me in a room with a view of a roof and fire escapes but upon my request gave me a much better room with a good view. The breakfast was excellent and the location is very convenient.

            The bathroom was too tiny and I'm not huge. The whole room felt too small. I have stayed in First before, in a First Lady room. Maybe that's why this was a disappointment.

            The hotel is nicely located near the pedestrian area.

            The room was comfortable but noisy. The bathroom was nice but no possibility to open the window and poor venting.
