I stayed in this hotel for a week in July 2014 with my husband. My parents, sister, and some friends were also staying there for different lengths of time. It is a good concept and conversion of an historic building. Unfortunately, the housekeeping service was not good. The rooms were universally not cleaned properly. The toilet in our room was visibly dirty from the previous occupants when we checked in. The bathroom was mouldy and rusty and could do with updating. There were dust and hairballs floating across the floor in the room. It was very hot, being summer, but no air conditioning in our room meant we had to have the windows open. This would normally have been fine as we had read reviews on tripadvisor and asked for a courtyard room (its true- the rooms on the roadside are VERY noisy). Unfortunately the courtyard seems to amplify the noise of the hotel bar and early in the morning the deliveries to the kitchen so we had very difficult sleep. We booked a superior double but were given twin beds and told we had to pay an extra 20 euro a night if we wanted a double bed. The hotel was a ten- fifteen minute walk from old town which is fine in itself, but given the noise and cleanliness issues, I'd recommend staying in a hotel central to Old Town since the side streets there are not as noisy as the traffic outside the Valdemars. We stayed at Hotel Justus for a couple of nights prior to the Valdemars- it had air conditioning so we could sleep with the windows shut and were not disturbed by any late night revelers.
