How to Get There

First Hotel Mayfair
Helgolandsgade 3
Copenhagen, 1653 Denmark


2 nights before cruise

2 star room with 4 star service. Beware that this is really 2 hotels under one name as they merged the Excelsior Hotel. The excelsior rooms are a bit different than the Mayfair ones as found my room in the Excelsior smaller than one got moved to on Mayfair side. The excelsior room bed was against wall and did not have separate shower area. Beware to Americans there queen is really a double sized bed as called it a European queen. I am 1.9 meters and was a bit small for me. I had picked this hotel as stated had queen sized beds. Judge need to stay at international business class hotel I get a true queen.

Hotel has small bar that can get various wines and beer. Staff politely switched rooms when asked and called two restaurants when had to change them from 4 people to 2 people as online system did not allow this. Also quickly called taxis when going out. Bar in excelsior side is where they serve breakfast and is open to 12.

Location is near train station on street that is nothing but hotels, restaurants and a strip club. This is not some seedy American one as did not really see anyone hanging outside and there are a number of gentlemen clubs in the area.

Convenient. Location

I got a discount by booking through Hotwire, but still it was over-priced like most hotels in this part of Copenhagen. We returned to from Odense the day before our flight home and wanted easy airport access. We would have rather spent our last night in Odense because of the express airport train from there. The Mayfair would probably compare well with area hotels in terms of quality and comfort, but for its neighbor, the Axel Guldsmeden, which is uniquely worth the money. Americans should be prepared for one (unnecessary) feature of both hotels: no a/c.

Wouldn’t go back.

Bathroom and first floor room were horrible. We could barely get in and out of the shower and if you were claustrophobic this would be a big problem. Also the bathroom was soaked after showers. I had looked into air bnb but didn’t do that because I wanted a real more American shower and the website showed better showers online. We booked this room after looking at tons of hotel reviews and pictures. I was gravely disappointed with this hotel as the room was barely renovated and the bathroom definitely wasn’t. They advertised that they had renovated rooms but when I asked the front desk they said that was the other building and not ours. I asked if we could change rooms and they were not helpful. The breakfast was great. Location was decent but we used the bikes which they also charged us for but it was definitely worth it because biking is so much better in Copenhagen!
