Nice room upgrades with some older features that could be updated (shower setup). Excellent breakfast buffet which is included. The hotel is very centrally located within walking distance to the train station and downtown.

They dont give you a receipt when you ask for it....so dont be a business traveler !. It have never happen to me before in any other danish hotels. So never pay upfront, then you dont get any receipt on your stay.
