Marselis Hotel - Aarhus

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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!

Stayed 1 night recently in this beatifully located hotel. Had a room with windows facing the sea, nice to hear the waves rolling in. Used the small gym downstair with a couple of treadmills and bikes - since the indoor pool is next to the gym it was pretty hot in the workout area but still ok. The hotel has a kind of 80s feeling in it but it was clean, quiet and had all the necessities I needed + the lovely views. Breakfast was very sufficient and the lounge are near the reception was quiet and suitable for another business appointment. Walked the nice seaside about 1,5kms to the nearby harbour and enjoyed a nice dinner at the Italian restaurant. Guessing this is the place to stay when visiting Aarhus.

The location is wonderfuls and most of the rooms have a vey nice view at the sea. But there are a few romms with view on car park.The restaurant is good, Danish dishes, but a little bit expensive a a lit bit slow at serving. Breakfast is really good!

Marselis is paced at the brink of The Bay of Aarhus to the front and the forrest at the back of the hotel. Still the centre of Aarhus is only 3 minuttes away. The facillities within the hotel are exquisit and the restaurant is good too. The emplouees´s service are polite, friendly and precise - all the way. Enjoy it if you visit, best regards Niels Laursen

Excelent hotel with good and nice rooms and with high standard of cleaning. Welcoming and friendly staff in both the front desk and the resturant. In addition, the hotel is located in stunning surroundings and overlooking the Aarhus Bay

The best definition of a 'Room with a view', good service, fine restaurant and clean rooms, no external disturbance. I might be somewhat partial because I love coming back to this hotel in my home town that I left many years ago!-) The gentle sound of the waves is better than any sleeping pill!!

Location is really the selling point for this hotel. It is located right on the beach and the modern rooms have expansive views of the ocean. It is also convenient to Arhus and several adjacent attractions (Marselisborg, Moesgaarden). The room was adequate in size and the decor was traditional. My wife did not like the liquid soap or hair products but I did not notice, but I do have less hair. The included breakfast buffet was impressive in size and selection. On the other occasions we visited the hotel restaurant we had a less positive experience. Wifi and plentiful parking is free, a welcome change from many American hotels
