About Hotel Royal, Aarhus, Denmark

Renovated 19th-century 4-star hotel close to harbor

Convenient to Old Town

A 6-minute walk from the waterfront, Hotel Royal has been an Aaarhus institution since 1838. Only 300-meters from Skolebakken Train Station, the hotel is also perched close to all the major sights of Old Town, a 17-minute walk.

Vikings in the forest

One of the largest art museums in Northern Europe, ARoS Aarhus Art Museum is a km away and houses 18th-century through contemporary works. Families may enjoy Moesgaard Forest, a 16-minute drive, where kids can explore the woods and discover the Vikings at Moesgaard Museum.

Arty casino

Traditional and luxurious, the hotel houses 300 pieces of art, including a vast array of stained glass windows and glass chandeliers. The exclusive casino has exquisite paintings of historic scenes on its walls and guests breakfast for free under an expansive glass ceiling.

Old-fashioned ambience

Warm rustic tones and gilded mirrors carry the traditional feel through to the rooms. Free WiFi and flat-screen TVs are matched to dark wood headboards and high-backed armchairs, creating an elegant ambiance - an ideal setting to peruse the free newspapers.

Hotel Royal, Aarhus, Denmark
Very Good8.0
One night prior to relocation
I arrived one day prior to my new apartment being ready for a relocation to Århus. The hotel has some dated characteristics but the service is solid, the breakfast is solid, and the room (albeit dated) hit the mark. The staff was super accommodating with my extra luggage and recommendations for food and drink nearby. I would stay here again for sure.

3 weeks at the Hotel Royal
The hotel itself was so so. The room was large but dated. The mattress was not very comfortable, after a few days my back was not happy. Some of the fixtures in the bathroom didn't function or functioned poorly. Breakfast was ok. Parking was a pain. The proximity to shopping was excellent.
