You can enjoy a cup of coffee while reading your emails in the newly renovated lounge, which is called the ‘Harry Potter room’ by the hosts at the hotel due to its interior and atmosphere. Despite the modern conveniences, you will still be able to enjoy the comfortable and historical surroundings, from the entrance and all the way the way to your room. The room types differ substantially as the hotel is made up of four wings that were each built in different centuries!
More than just a bed
On the left side of the reception is the breakfast buffet, where we daily make sure that you get a proper breakfast, which consists of a healthy and varied diet so that there is something for everyone. You can sit and enjoy breakfast by the buffet, which is placed in a bright room with a great atmosphere among the guests and our staff. You can also sit in “the library”, which is both used for breakfast and later by groups, who want to sit together in the evening and enjoy a beer or a glass of wine from the reception. Breakfast is sold separately from the room, giving you the option to decide how many days you want to eat at the hotel, and which days you want to go out and eat somewhere else.
In extension to the library there are two meeting rooms, named “Mads Skjern” and “Director Varnæs”, who are characters in a classic Danish TV show set during the World War 2, Matador. The hotel was a source of inspiration to the author of the show, Lise Nørgaard. The meeting rooms can be used by anyone free of charge. As mentioned above, we want to be part of the local environment and this is one of the ways that we invite local companies and associations inside, but if you come from abroad, you are of course also welcome to host a meeting at the hotel.

The hotel’s architecture
The hotel in Roskilde consists of four wings: the listed main building from the beginning of the 1700s; a stairwell from the 1930s; a side building from the first decades of the 1900s; as well as a new room wing from the year 2000. The main building was designed by architect Ove Petersen from the Royal Theater, who was inspired by the style of the French renaissance, which is very visible in his play with the brick work. This style is what ensures the building its very distinctive, beautiful and mansion-like front that faces the shopping street of Roskilde. It is this façade and the Golden Age banquet room that are particularly noteworthy in the building’s architecture.
History of Roskilde’s hotel
On March 5th, 1695, King Christian the 5th issued a decree concerning “public shelters and pubs in Denmark.” In this decree it was written that shelters were to be opened on shopping streets through which post was delivered. In accordance with the decree, what is known as Zleep Hotel Prindsen Roskilde today was built as a privileged inn. In 1731, a terrible fire ravaged the city of Roskilde, and it unfortunately burned down a large part of the hotel as well. However, the hotel was restored by the owner, Madam Berg. In the 1800s, H.C. Andersen frequently visited the old hotel. The world-famous author wrote the following passage in his diary back then: “Such poor lodging at Prindsen, no blinds, so the neighbors had to shut their blinds when I changed my clothes. The sun was burning piping hot inside. The servants of course noble at Prindsen. Home 8 o’clock, first time I sleep in the city where the kings sleep, I sleep terribly, I sleep at Prindsen. Across from me a gentleman sings: Lille Viggo vil du ride ranke [poem by H.C. Andersen], not knowing the poet sits just on the other side.” It should be noted that blinds and other modern necessities have been added to the rooms. In the same century, the hotel was also visited by author and seascapist Holger Drachmann, who stayed for a long time before moving into Roskilde Mansion.
Restaurant and banqueting rooms
The Golden Age banqueting room is often considered the pride of the hotel and is probably the most beautiful and historic room in Denmark. Since the inauguration in 1880, the banqueting room has facilitated several large events in Roskilde. With expert guidance from the National Museum, the Golden Age room was gently brought back to original appearance in 2001. Today it is an exemplary illustration of just how well a classic room and modern technology can be combined; the architecture is very visible whereas the technology has been hidden as much as possible. Not many banqueting facilities in Denmark can facilitate as beautiful and festive surroundings for a wedding or other events. Thus, it is not without good reason that the banqueting room is such a popular choice to host festive events such as weddings, confirmations, birthdays, receptions and much more in.
Author Gustav Wied portray the atmosphere of Roskilde’s bird shooting company’s get-togethers in his book ‘Evil of Life’: “In the huge room, the large gas chandelier was lit, and chandeliers were beaming on the side of the six pillar mirrors. The audience was sitting head by head in tight rows; the gentlemen in full evening dress, and the ladies in their wildest clothing. An almost devout silence reigned the room. One hardly dared draw breath, that’s how excited one was. The eyes’ sparkling had become bigger and the color of the cheeks higher. The escorts’ protecting arms lay more firmly around the ladies’ meek waists. The hearts were beating and the lips were laughing. One started becoming a human being. Class differences melted away. And the hour of the uncritical involvement had come. The entire room was a confusing mass, a noisy buzzing of laughter. The chandelier rocked in the draught from the whirling skirts, and the floor was shaking. And the saloon decorative canvas wing doors in the theater were opening and closing. At 4 1/2 o’clock, the last guests went home.”
