Travellers' Choice
The AARHUS Guldsmeden Hotel is a small boutique-hotel with a total of 26 individually decorated rooms; all in French Colonial style. The hotel is located in the very centre of Aarhus - in the charming, old Latin Quarter - with romantic restaurants and amazing shopping facilities just around the corner. We take pride in offering our guests a personal and warm service in homely surroundings - hoping to provide a feeling of being at home away from home. Being a garni hotel we serve a full 95% organic breakfast buffet, which exceeds all expectations. At the back of the hotel you will find our beautiful garden and terrace area - with candlelights, flowers and cosy furniture. The perfect place to have a cop of organic tea, a glass of wine or just enjoying the calm ... We look forward to welcoming you at the small hotel - and sincerely hope to give you a magical stay with us.

This boutique inn is a wonderful place to explore Aarhus. You are within walking distance of everything and the hotel is a great respite after a long day exploring. You could not ask for a better location. The backyard gardens have smaller sitting areas throughout. The rooms are well appointed, albeit a little small with two suitcases, and the ensuite has everything you need. Front desk staff were terrific, particularly in terms of guiding us to use the discounted parking the hotel has arranged with the department store Magasin. Lots of local dining options around so we did not eat in the restaurant attached, but if you do request a room with a garden view be on notice that there will be some noise from that in the evening. The one suggestion that I would have is that the hotel not allow any guests to smoke on its outside terraces -- that smoke goes into guests rooms and is pretty unpleasant. The garden should be reserved for smoking guests.

We stayed a family of 4 in one room and had very nice stay. The hotel is located in an old building and was very charming. Friendly staff and a very nice organic breakfast and free coffee and tea all day.

Friendly and well located hotel but room - even a "plus" room - is worn down, slightly shabby and unattractive even with cigarette burns in the furniture. Chairs and bed is very used and unfortable. Not up to standard with other hotels in the same price bracket in Aarhus. Avoid!

Old and shabby, seems not updated in this century. Uncomfortable and very soft bed, (when I pointed this out, reception said, oh yes we know, we are working on a solution! ), chairs not usable to sit in. The older, the more charming? No, does not work this way! To use safety box, you must be able to twist your body into a impossible position! Difficult to adjust hot and cold water in the shower! Individual taps for hot and cold water. Very limited heating. No lifts, very steep stairs. Rail no use as you would then have to use the inner part of the stairs, very narrow,.. when I asked about this, reception said, yes. we know, but owner does not want to use the money.. Never again!

The staff at Aarhus Guldsmeden are the standout feature of this hotel. They are super attentive, friendly and helpful. We arrived early after an unpleasant journey to the hotel. They managed to check us in early so we could get some well needed rest, thanks to the front desk receptionist and house keeping for taking sympathy on us. Breakfast was nice, a basic but high quality Scandinavian fare. What really let the hotel down was the condition of the hotel. I see from the website that it opened 21 years ago and looks as though it has not undergone any refurbishment since it opened. The white walls, bathroom tiles and flooring look worn out and in urgent need of an update. This standard cannot be classified as luxurious. Staff get 5 stars, condition of hotel get 1 star. Unfortunately, I would not stay here again until they undergo an update.
