We stayed here for one night, stopping off on a train journey from Copenhagen to Oslo, so the location, right outside the main railway station was ideal.
The hotel is clearly an old building, probably as old as the station itself, standing alone in the square, surrounded by the railway station, the tram terminus and a busy road. First impressions on entering reception were that the interior is as dated as the building, and we were not wrong! The Receptionist, however, was very helpful.
We were give a room on the first floor, overlooking the tram terminus, and with a small balcony with a small table and two chairs. Rather ominously by the bed were two sets of earplugs! There is no air conditioning, so the only way to cool the room is by opening the windows or balcony doors, but this comes at a price as the noisy trams continue until midnight and start early in the morning. Wifi is available within the hotel but as soon as you move onto the balcony the signal becomes very poor.
The standalone bath is okay, but without a screen or shower curtain the bathroom floods easily when taking a shower. There are no drinks in the room but a small area in Reception where flasks of coffee and water can be found (but I don't know how hot or fresh these are, as we have a travel kettle).
The restaurant area is quite dark and dismal, with a central bar which also serves as the breakfast buffet. There is, however, an outdoor seating area overlooking the square. The buffet breakfast was fine.
If you are looking for a reasonably priced hotel close to the station then this is fine, but not somewhere you would wish to be for a prolonged stay.
