A fairly new and pleasant hotel with friendly, helpful staff. Very central. Very small room. Steep stairs up into hotel from street (stair lift available). No vehicle access to hotel entrance, so be prepared for a short walk from taxi/bus. Some late night noise, intensity depends on room location. I would stay there again.
Great motel next to the highway which is easy when travelling north-south through Denmark. The noise of the highway could be disturbing if you are not used to it and want the room window open at night.
This isn't a luxury hotel but for the price it's fairly decent. Bathroom design is rather poor (shower is not enclosed and sprays all over the bathroom floor). Staff were friendly. Breakfast was good, if a little boring, but included a few cooked items (bacon, sausages and scrambled egg). Wifi should not be relied on; it is extremely slow (too many people sharing the same connection). The hotel isn't too far from the town centre (5 minutes or so), but it is on the edge, so it's a bit industrial.

The hotel room was small and basic, a twin, but it was clean and functional. The pool and sauna were really nice and the free wifi was a bonus. There was no noise at night and so I slept well.
I liked the fact that the hotel was situated out of the town centre in a nice area. It only took just over 30 minutes to walk to the zoo and around 40 for the centre of Aalborg.
I asked for gluten free breakfasts and the hotel kindly baked me a loaf of gluten free bread (but didn't provide a separate carving knife and expected me to use the knife used to cut the gluten containing bread). There was no gluten free cereal, but I was able to eat some of the hot food (bacon and eggs), yogurt and fruit which was very tasty.
The staff spoke good English which was appreciated as I needed some help and advice regarding my stay in Aalborg.
The hotel wasn't cheap so the room was a bit dissapointing, but I suspect that this was due more to the high cost of most things in Denmark.
This is the first time we stayed with this chain. The check-in was easy and the staff helpful. The family room was nice and had plenty of space. Has bunk beds and two desks. Why not a higher ranking, the bathroom is very poorly designed. No space to store or hold items, and part of the toilet is under the sink, very uncomfortable. Worst than in C-class of a small old cruise ship.
Aalborg has transformed itself from an industrial hub to a pleasant college town. Its waterfront features the futuristic Utzon Center cultural complex. In contrast to this 21st-century landmark, go to the Jens Bangs House, a Renaissance mansion across from the Town Hall. A short walk from the city center is a slice of Africa: the Aalborg Zoo is home to 140 animal species, from aardvarks to zebras.
