Recent guest reviews

A good, nice and simple hotel perfect situated by the canal. The restaurant area is along the canal, so you have just some hundred metres to walk to the restaurants and the city centre. Friendly staff.

Over all liked this hotel Pros 1. Central Location with bars and restaurants in walking distance 2. Sea views from restaurant on 9th floor where breakfast is served 3. cleaniness 4. Good for the price Cons 1. Room size small 2. Toilets need upgrade.

I was there for a four night stay during the New Years. The hotel is near the bus station and the train station. My room faced the harbor and the view of the fireworks on New Years Eve was outstanding, The breakfast was very high quality. The staff was excellent. They were helpful in providing recommendations for museums. Free and good Wifi.There is tea and coffee in the front lobby. Bring your own thermos bottle because there is no a cooker in the room. The front desk will fill it up so you can have coffee and tea in your room. In the evening there were brownies with the tea and coffee. The staff all speak English, as did all the people from Denmark I met. Only issue with the trip was not anything related to the hotel, but the museums were closed on December 31, 2017, and January 1, 2018. Also many eating places were closed. If you want to tour sights, this is not the time to visit the city.

Very centraly located by the harbour, parking available and good infrastructue by tram and busses. Friendly staff, good rooms, great view from the breakfast restaurant and a very good selektion of food for breakfast.

My mum and I stayed 2 nights First Hotel Atlantic and had a fantastic stay. The rooms were really comfortable and spacious with excellent complimentary WI-FI, the location was great with everything you needed in walkable distance and the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The hotel also offered free coffe/tea and cake in the reception area every afternoon and because of the month of December we could even get a free glass of the Danish Christmas drink gløgg. The breakfast is probably one of the best breakfast I have ever had in a hotel. Everything you could imagine was there including a free morning bitter if you fancied. Can only highly recommend this place and would definitely book again if I ever go back to Aarhus.

The hotel has nice amenities, plentiful breakfast and free WiFi. Unfortunately, lighting in the rooms leaves much to be desired, especially in December. An addition of decent ceiling lamp would be quite welcome. Located near several decent restaurants and shopping district.

Centrally located near city center, library, and short distance from the train station, this hotel is very friendly and would be well suited for business and tourists alike. Only thing to note is that the attached restaurant is separate from the hotel and doesn't allow you to charge to your room

I stayed there 25 years ago and hated it. Hotel surrounded by drunks and bad looking hookers. Now? Great area, great hotel. Renovated rooms and super breakfast! This is highly revommendable if you visit Aarhus!!

We were attending a concert at the Musikhuset so wanted a hotel near to the venue. Hotel is very visible from train station where we arrived. A lovely room on the 6th floor with a balcony, all amenities very good standard. Breakfast and breakfast room on the 10th floor were as nice as anywhere we've stayed. Traffic noise a bit intrusive at night, but all round, a great choice of a place to stay.

definitely good value for money and nice location as well. Clear and spacious room. Breakfast was ok good. Staff was very friendly and humble. Outside parking could be an issue, but I was lucky to find one for free.
