The hotel promotes it self as beeing elegantly classic with moderne comforts. It´s more old and classic with a minimum of modern comforts.

The hotel was established in 1848. The effort to keep it modern and inviting has partially failed. It just feels old in most aspects.

Hotel could not be in the better location: just in main square. My room had a great view on whole square and it was large and spacious. Bathroom is new and clean. I had really nice sleep there. Wi fi was great. But, overall, there is nothing special and fantastic in this hotel so

Arrived late in a dank and dismal Tuesday night to be welcomed by old world charm mixed with good, comfortable rooms/beds, a decent breakfast and a great and quiet nights sleep.

If I could change anything it would be having to pay for WiFi- a very 2000’s approach to value added

Dear Stu, Thanks for your kind review of Hotel Dania. I am very sorry about the misunderstand about the internet. We have free WIFI at the hotel, but somehow the information book in you room was not updated. Sorry about inconvenience you did experience at the hotel. We will go through the hotel and update our room information books. Best Regards Thomas Knudsen Hotel Dania

A very nice hotel on the main square. Parking in the back and good size rooms. Slightly cold bathroom with showercurtains - that I really hate. Great bed - excellent sleep. Service as good as I expect in Denmark - and that is very good. Breakfast was the nicest surprise.

Hello Steve. Vi er er selvfølgelig ked af at du har et par kritiske anmærkninger til jeres ophold på hotellet. Hotel Dania er et dejligt hotel som ligger midt på Silkeborg Torv og heldigvis er der liv på Torvet en varm sommer aften. Hotellet er helt igennem ny renoveret indefor de sidste 3 år. Værelset I har boet på , ( ligesom alle vores andre værelser) er et fantastisk yndigt værelse, som vi havde håbet på at også ville falde i din smag. Vi er ked af, at under opholdet har du ikke rettet henvendelse til receptionen for at modtager en air-vifte som vi kunne havde stillet op på værelset. Med venlig hilsen, receptionen.

"Pick on the first floor and use the stairs instead of litfs."
"Room 218 is where Hans Christian Andersen stayed. Room 216 is also nice and faces the square In the past I stayed in a room with a bathtub, but not sure which one it was (though it was facing back yard)"
"Pick a different hotel."
