Staying in Aarhus regularly I have stayed in many of the late hotel chains. I stumbled across BB Hotel online and having stayed here am hooked on the concept and value it offers. The location is great, rooms are clean and breakfast is fine. Only improvement would be to silence the door code key pads as they are a little... More

This concept was new to us and although we were a little skeptical at first after this experience we would do this again. So there is no personal present on site and our code for the door was sent by email on the invoice and sent to my phone on the day. We were worried about parking so I emailed... More

I knew when I booked this place that it was a self service hotel and I did not care because you save money and still, you get something quite amazing.

Hotels in Denmark are very expensive. The BB-Hotel chain counters that with a hotel that has no reception and no staff except for those that clean rooms and put out the breakfast. You book online, get a code and you're in. The room in this hotel had a private bath and a tv. Breakfast is not inspiring, but can get... More

When it was booked, I was suprised of the much cheaper price, then before checking in, I realise it is a self-service hotel, meaning no reception, no key but codes and self serving breakfast. Pro: 1. Price: a simple breakfast is also included 2. Location: great! Close the the sea, seeing so many nice yachts and hear the sea birds!... More

It almost feels like a gimmick that you arrive at the hotel with your "code", let yourself into the building, and then into your room with that code. In the morning food is laid out, and when you check out you leave the door open so they'll know to clean it. You could easily stay here without ever crossing path... More
