                  • Very good location and worst hotel ever. Friendly staff and very nice room. Tasty breakfast.

                    The bathroom is probably not anymore renovated since 20 years.

                  • Nice location in the city centre and kind hotel stuff. Likewise a friendly reception, very comfortable beds and cheap soap. Breakfast is the best.

                    Impolite staff and dirty rooms. Expensive for food.

                  • The central location meant that was not a major issue to find restaurants, etc near by and for a Danish hotel in the center of Odense this was a great value. Staff were really friendly and room was big. Breakfast choice was good.

                    Shower head rusty and filthy.

                  • Location is excellent and the hotel is nicely located near the pedestrian area. The rooms are cozy and renovated, breakfast is correct.

                    Free internet clouds very old style, poor service and the bathroom is really small and uncomfortable.

                  • Good location, nice atmosphere and reasonable rates. Very friendly and helpful staff, comfortable bed. Cheap towels and great breakfast. The only choice in central Odense.

                    Most of the rooms are in an annexed building behind the old hotel and the window without a fence is dangerous for children.

                  • Good location, very convenient place and we liked the atmosphere in the old building. Reasonable price and staff friendly. The bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was lovely.

                    This hotel was dirty, smelly, had hot rooms and was way overpriced, the bathroom was too tiny.

                  • Excellent location and convenient to the central train station. I loved the unique design and beautiful building. Just next to primary shopping streets, reasonable price public parking nearby and particularly the bathroom had a classic style. Staff were very friendly, rooms were great and breakfast was delicious and varied choice.

                    Comfortable stay and dirty sanitary interior. Very bad service and bed was uncomfortable.

                  • Really near the city centre, and the train station is just across the King's Garden and the price of the hotel is very reasonable. Staff are extremely friendlily and helpful, the best bed that we have ever slept in, only bread is great.

                    Furnishings in common areas a little tired and taxis's expensive. Low value for money, beautiful old building and not functional design of the interior in the bathroom. Impersonal service, really small room and dirty toilet. Breakfast no good for food, limited facilities, I guess are the reason is not 5.

                  • Great location in central Odense and the train service from Copenhagen is excellent. The hotel is elegant and Danish style and comfort at its best. Staff is polite and professional, the furniture of the rooms are in modern.

                    View from the window is not very exciting, the young woman at the front desk seemed to be unaware of this and just a bit tired Some complimentary water would be nice. Limited facilities, i guess are the reason is not 5.

                    Old and badly maintaied rooms.
