Lonely Planet review

Odense’s grand dame dates from 1897 and her exterior is still a head-turner; she's had a skilful makeover in recent times, bringing the interior up-to-date, with lots of warm chocolate tones in the crisp, business-style room decor. The location is good and the breakfast excellent; the lovely lounge and brasserie areas are the best features. Online deals are good.

Our independent authors have visited First Hotel Grand and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Odense.
