We stayed here for 4 nights in July in the 3 Elements Suite. It was gorgeous and had lovely period features including beams and brick walls. Housekeeping were excellent and the room was spotless each day. Breakfast was fine (the usual cold meats, bread, fruit, yoghurts etc), wi fi worked perfectly in our room and the icebar was quiet but nice.
We arranged transportation to and from the airport through the hotel and this was faultless. Would recommend, particularly given the horror stories here about rip off taxi drivers!
You could not ask for a better location. The hotel was right opposite a lively beer house- we didn't hear a peep from it at night in fairness- and within crawling distance of the town square. It was wonderful every morning to walk through the square and soak up the Old Town atmosphere. Restaurants overpriced there and not good so beware! We recommend Ribe (and also Olde Hansa if you fancy the more tourist places).
The hotel reception were efficient and helped us book a visit at the KGB museum at the Viru Hotel (interesting).
All in, I would recommend this hotel. Its not a Marriott- it has character and uneven floors and single glazing. But then it is a piece of history at a reasonable price in the Old Town.
The only reason this doesn't get 5 stars is because the aircon was broken and it was 30 degrees throughout our stay. The fan and the open windows were sufficient to ensure a decent night's sleep. Thanks to Merchant's House for a lovely long weekend :)
