2/10 Poor

I had a very horrible experience with this hotel. Everything was overpriced. It claims to be 4 stars but the rooms were dirty, the food was stale, there was no room service the whole time I stayed several days. The front desk staff lady I don't know her name but she was Danish in her Mid 30-40's she was extremely rude to me she wanted me to wait around 2 hours in the lobby instead of the room on a flloor not a single staff was cleaning because they could not locate my laundry I had given then 2 days prior. With heavy luggage after spending a fortune on their dirty, unsanitary hotel. I tolerated all that including waiting in long lines with huge family crowding to go to the swimming pool. They were loud people coughing everywhere I saw no Covid precautions in place at all. Everything was old and outdated. The front desk staff lady was so rude to me I asked to speak to a manager and she gave me a "Stepherd Wives" grim ignoring me told me to go over there like a little boy. I keep repeating my request until a guest behind me a man rudely interupted me and this lady incited this whole thing by stonewalling me and rudely disregarding me. My laundry should have been ready at 11 am at check out they had it for 2 days. They charge 800DKK to do simple 3 outfits. I tolerated all of it after spending $170 a night to basically stay in a dump then the manager calls me up and basically abuses me during a dinner hour totally and completely unprofessional. Lotte Anderson a nightmare! -WORST!

Parking convenient - restaurants nearby
Right in the heart of town, parking was very convenient just across from the hotel. They gave you a note to place on your dash board. Overall good stay w many restaurants nearby. Room will be good to have a fridge and could do with a bath mat even though the design of the shower door is very good
