“location is what is on offer”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

This is more of a hostel than a hotel. The location is convenient to the town, but the First Hotel Aalbourg is better.
The place closes down from 11-6. the elevators do not run and there is just code access to a door to the stairs.
There is no restaurant that can serve food. there is just a small breakfast. if you get there too late there is no coffee.
This place is a bed, but little more.

Room Tip: ask for a room facing away from town they are quieter.

The redeeming feature of the hotel is the warm welcome from the chap on reception, who, seeing that we were tired and frazzled with a grumpy toddler after an awful journey let us get settled first and then pay.
Room very basic. Two long black hairs on the pillow and bed. Hopefully the cleaner's. sound insulation between rooms very bad. Probably because televisions are wall-mounted.
Price very high for what it is. I agree that it feels somewhere between a hostel and a hotel.
Can't comment on breakfast as we had to leave too early to benefit from it. I asked on check-in if we could have a breakfast bag to take away or something, but sadly not. Still had to pay for the breakfast we never had! At 795DKK, this was twice what I would pay in the UK and was only 100DKK cheaper than the Legoland hotel the night before (which had a fab breakfast!).
Be aware there are no dining facilities in the evenings - no room service, or hotel restaurant, which meant my partner had to go out foraging for a takeaway. Nice pizza from not too far away.
Reception not always staffed and seems there is no night porter. Had to sneak out of the back door due to early departure. Not sure this could be done if in a wheelchair, as we were directed to a door at the bottom of stairs.
Only just 3/5. If not for chap on reception, definite 2/5.

I had one night stay at this hotel and can not say that I was pleased at all. Can not say that the hotel was cheap having paid 105 EUR for me and two small kids, and it is outside city center. It is much more like a student dormitory or a hostel than a hotel.
I arrived at the hotel at 13.00h very tired and the receptionist told me at once that I need to wait one hour more because check inn is from 14.00 even without to ask the room maids if some room is already cleaned and he sound not very service minded.
The duvet was very warm, not according to the season and I needed to sleep without. Cushion was very higt and had pain in my neck many hours the next day. It was no ventilation in the room so you need to open the window to breathe.

However the room was clean and the breakfast was not bad.

Reviewed 27 April 2013

We stayed only for one night, and it was good value for the cheap price we paid. The staff is very friendly. Breakfast is average, but more than enough. The room was a bit dark, and were in need of some refurbishment. It was, however, clean. The bathroom is what really reduces the standard, it was small, simply equipped, and really in need of some refurbishment. The water in the shower did not get warm enough. Overall the hotel suffers from being old, but the staff impressed us with their friendly approach. Could stay here again.

I have stayed at this hotel a few times and it seems to have become my preferred place to stay when visiting Aalborg. Staff is friendly and very helpful, rooms and bathrooms are fine. Love the fact they have quite a few organic items at the breakfast buffet. The wifi works well (most of the time) and there is a nice smoking lounge with TV. Free parking is available on the premises and the hotel is situated a 5 minute walk from the pedestrian shopping streets. All in all really good value for money when staying in Aalborg.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the parking lot at the entrance. They are quieter than those facing Nordkraft...

only stayed there 1 night. Spacious, clean and fast check-in/out.

It took us 25mins walking from the train station to this hotel, quite easy to find.

Internet is only available in the reception area.

The breakfast is quite good.

The TV is a bit far from the bed, it's hard to watch it clearly.
