First Hotel Aalborg

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

the First Hotel was a great place to stay. Very close to the river which offers a broad promenade for walking, the hotel is also extremely convenient to cultural and culinary offerings. It is very clean and offers a large breakfast buffet.

The quality of the First Hotel chain is ok, rooms are spacious and clean, but breakfast was average. The WIFI in the hotel is okay and your on walking distance from city centre. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Very nice hotel with large rooms. Service was excellent. Parking just outside, but I suspect it can a bit small when the hotel is full. Breakfast was very good. Nice location - close to CBD, but a quiet area. Only negative is showercurtains - don’t like them. Over all - a very nice place to stay....

good hotel, spacious and clean rooms, relaxed service and close to city centre. The breakfastI did not try but looked well prepared to reasonable price quality. Easy going to the airport and therefor a good place to go for business purposes.

Good location and modern but lacking in many ways. Onsite parking limited and expensive. Other parking a distance and very expensive. Add 20 euros per night to your trip. Not enough plugs in the room. No curtains so good for early starters. Breakfast packed in a small place and limited supplies. Lifts old and jumpy. Staff great though. There are other options close by I would try first next time.

Price / quality is very good. Good staff. Has all needs, only missing expect is not having a restaurant. But it is not a problem with so many restaurants in the surroundings. Location is good and lot of services are on walking distance.

The hotel is on a central place near to airport, city and business. Friendly and harmonic atmosphere some steps away to the fjord and has a comfortable place for breakfast with sufficient fresh assortment and friendly atmosphere.

We stayed here on our trip back from our holidays in Norway. We asked for a quiet room and this was OK. However the rooms are really totally worn out, the lighting is awfull with only a large TL as the main light above an oversized mirror that reinforces the effect and the furniture contains stains (of what I don't want to guess). Also parking space is limited. Fortunately, the crew at the reception is friendly. We would not recommend this hotel as the price/quality ratio is unreasonable.

A bit mixed experince. Location is great but... I didn't get parking as promised at check-in and ended up to park in parking house in the middle of night, alone. Also, rooms are not modern even though bathrooms are recently updated. Ventilation is not adequate, breakfast is very crowdy with a busload of loud guests Saturday morning, no refill of shampoo or showergel .. all kind of basics that I would expect for the cost of room here.

I have used this hotel frequently when I stay in Aalborg. This time was unfortunately way below normal standards. At check in, we simple got the grumpy and arrogant "service" crew. She did not explain anything, not even about the parking, just hand over paper we should fill in. I prefer if she have explained why we have to fill in paper for parking. Have order a single room, got a room with extra bed! No Shampoo, different toilet paper. (Yes quality of toilet paper is important). I was in a hurry, told the service crew. No response and no action regarding shampoo. Toilet facilities are good, renewed few years ago. Quality of room was very poor, old, used, small. Breakfast YES it was as it is always at this hotel. Good very good, different Danish newspaper to choose. When you check in ask for Helle. She was all that the grumpy lady wasn't! Smilie, helpful. Helle simple made it easier for you as guest. I vote Helle employee of the month. Unlucky me the grumpy lady was also the lady whom checked me out. That's was the top of arrogance! She was talking to another person dining the check out process, hand over my recipe with out eye contact, but continued talking to the other person. I am sorry, but the stay was way below what you can expect. No more First Hotel in Aalborg.
