Helnan Marselis Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The rooms are worn down and not very clean. Booked the hotel because of the location and the see view. Got a room facing the parking lot and very loud from an event in the park. When asking for a different room the staff was very unfriendly and didn't wanted to help at all! Won't stay here again!

Firstly the good : our room was terrace level right away from the main exit doors and this gave a nice extension to the room. The sea views are lovely and being close to the beach was a bonus with the kid in tow. The pool and gym are small but again it's useful when it rains. The room was quite large with 2 singles made to a double and a fold up bed. The bathroom was shower only but roomy. Almost all the staff were very very nice especially the waiters. Breakfast did have a good selection and at the time of our stay the hotel was very busy and they kept food stocked up. Safe in room too. Location is very picturesque. Right on beach short walk to the deer park and bus outside to town or towards moesgard sound. Plenty of walking away from the city centre. What I didn't like : firstly I'd expect there to be some sort of complimentary tea / coffee just basic instant but there is none. This was especially annoying as I only drink Decaf and was charged for instant with hot water and a splash of milk. As a conference facility they could set up complimentary residents drinks I'm sure. Secondly we ate twice at the hotel and the prices are very high. The first meal was much better than the second where the service also fell far short of my expectations (younger staff on that night may have been the reason?). Had lunch there too which was good but again expect to pay a high price. For us it was the right hotel in aarhus based on its location.

The location is lovely. All rooms have Sea view and easy access to nice beach. Close to woods and not too far from town. The staff is friendly and helpful. Rooms are adecuate for Standard, but there is generally something broken. And DO NOT get a room under the restaurant or you will get little or no sleep The restaurant is lousy. The food is not well cooked and hugely overpriced. The scrambled eggs are overcooked, made in the oven, the boiled eggs nearly raw. The Applejuice is so watered down it is water. The water for tea luke warm.

Visited Marselis during my business trip to Aarhus. Very nice hotel with spectacular sea views. Breakfast was also good. Propably even better for holiday travellers. Hotel is located quite far from city centre - you will need a bike or taxi to get there.

My wife invited me on a romantic trip to celebrate my 40th birthday on this amazing hotel with the most wonderful view of the Aarhus Bay. The restaurant in the hotel is nothing short of amazing. The surroundings with the bay, the forest and Mindeparken are amazing. This is one of the best getaways I have had for years

Third stay at Helnan Marselis - had the "worst" room compared with the first times, at the very end of the hotel and on the second level from ground - I think we had this room because of the two big parties, which we didn't notice/heard at all - a bit dusty, but still with this magnificient view to the east across the Århus Bay area. Open door and no curtain to the see side - saw again the raising sun around 4 pm...just because you can. the breakfast is so so but still ...its there, and the waiters quit nice, so can you ask for more, before you chearfull enter Århus

A hotel which is only 10-15mins away from the city where you get to take in the beauty of the elegant coastline. Nice sea view from the room. Furniture are slightly old but otherwise it's good for vacation or business stay.

The hotel is very nicely situated at the waterfront, and the view from the rooms is breathtaking. The restaurant is quite good. The rooms are not new, but they are clean and OK. We used the hotel as basis for the Nortside17 festival, and it was all perfect. Can be recommended for a couple of days away 😀

This hotel has the best view of the sea. There also is a lovely beach to walk on. The rooms were very comfortable and roomy. There was also a small deck from which to enjoy the view from. The restaurant has wonderful food with great service. Many authentic Danish recipes. The reception staff was very helpful. They booked a ferry trip for my party. Also helped me get a forgotten item returned to me.

My family and I stayed at Marselis hotel during the annual Classic Race Aarhus festival, and I can only say that we need to stay there every year for this event. The hotel is located just next to the entrance of the event, which makes it very convenient ... To wake up every morning to the most beautiful view of Aarhus bay, and to go for a run in the woods just next to the hotel is just amazing... It is a great location if you want to be close to both nature and Aarhus city. Breakfast is also very nice with a big selection, and a with lot of organic food as well. I can only recommend!
