About Helnan Marselis Hotel, Aarhus

4-star hotel with free breakfast on Aarhus’ scenic coast

Between forest and sea

Nestled on Aarhus Bay, Helnan Marselis Hotel has a prized location on the beach overlooking the tranquil waters of Aarhus Bugt. The 200-year-old beech trees of Marselisborg Forests are only a 10-minute walk, spreading for an impressive 7 km along the coastline.

Royal palace, fun rides

The Danish royal family’s summer residence, Marselisborg Palace, is a 15-minute walk and the Queen’s rose garden is an idyllic spot for long summer picnics. It's a 5-minute drive to Tivoli Friheden, a family favorite with more than 40 rides and a recently added 5D Haunted House.

Pool and sauna

A free breakfast - as well as Danish and international cuisine at lunch and dinner - can be enjoyed while admiring Restaurant Marselis’ views of the bay. Guests have the opportunity to clock laps in the indoor pool, pound treadmills in the gym, or simply chill in the sauna. Free parking and an electric car charging station are also available.

Free WiFi, bay views

Waking up to a view is guaranteed for all 168 rooms thanks to the hotel’s all-glass wall, which faces east over the sea. Dark wooden floors, patterned drapes, and deep royal tones create a traditional ambience, though the rooms are brought up to date with free WiFi.

Very Good 8.2 From 977 reviews

Helnan Marselis Hotel, Aarhus
The food was really, really good. The room was so nice, opened on to a terrace overlooking the beach. We walked to the forest are saw the animals. We visited the summer palace. It was a bit of a hike to the bus stop to go into town, but totally worth it for the reasons listed.

Very Good8.0
Wonderful location
The location is wonderful and my room was very comfortable. Check-in was slow because the person before me was making special requests. I really enjoyed the sea-view from my room and ease of walking on the beach.

A night on the parking lot of Marsalis
Apparantly Marsalis have added an annex to their hotel which meant that we stayed in the backyard of the hotel on a parking lot. Everyone could look into our windows and whenever a car drove by our room would lose all its light. It was more like a hostel than a nice hotel.

Great hotel...great value.
Marselis is a great hotel reasonably priced, right on the water, with nice rooms, the best breakfast buffet we enountered in our 5 country trip. The only negative was the hard-to-imagine tub in the bathroom. It had a narrow, rounded bottom that felt actually dangerous to stand on. They need replacing!
