Very Comfortable Stay
Reviewed 1 week ago

First time in Copenhagen and didn't know much about the hotel's location or facilities. Very pleasantly surprised indeed as the hotel is spotless with well appointed (if small) rooms. Comfy bed and pillows which seems to be a bit of a rarity these days. Less than 5 mins walk from Tivoli Gardens and the Hop-on Hop-off Gray Line bus stop No. 12. Breakfast was overpriced, as it is in most hotels to be honest, so we jumped on the Hop-on bus and got off at Nyhaven and ate at the fantastic outdoor canal side restaurants. Lovely sports bar on the ground floor of the hotel, which we didn't get a chance to eat or drink in as the weather was fantastic, so all meals had were 'Al Fresco'. Very nice attentive staff on reception and around the hotel generally giving a friendly family run feel. Would definitely recommend and would return.

Great place for a short stay

We had just arrived in Copenhagen and were really pleased that we stayed here. Good location, great staff, good breakfast, great wifi and lots of good restaurants nearby.

The need to preseve the exterior building facade limits has forced some design issues on them - such as small corridors and use of a nearby building - but these didn't cause us any concern.

Easy to find !

We took the train from airport to Central Station. With walking instructions from TripAdvisor readers, it was easy to find.
When you come out of the station on the door on the left, you will see a bar called Jernbane Cafeen directly opposite you. Take the road to the right of the bar called Istedgade, follow the road down and take the second road up Helgolandsgade. The hotel is on the right.
We had a room with ‘city view’. Actually it was just above the main entrance. Not much of city view. Opposite was a Best western hotel and next to it was Lady Love !
Room had no aircon so we opened the windows alittle at night to let in the air. Quiet street until early morning when we could hear delivery trucks downstairs with engines running. Didn’t really trouble our sleep. What we were not used to was the early sunrise and by 4.30 am, the room was bright as curtains were not black-out curtains.
Good location though. We could walk past Tivoli Gardens to the pedestrian street and onwards to take a canal cruise.
Missing our home food, along the pedestrian street, we found the Middle Eastern kebab food and even a small Chinese food stall.
Had a pretty good stay for 3 nights.

Like many mixed feelings.

Location very good. Staff very friendly and helpful. Design interesting. Rooms small but clean. Beds comfortable and firmness can be adjusted. Air conditioning, none in our room.

I have a feeling room location and available air conditioning depends on price paid especially if using a third party to purchase. Our room did not have air and was only comfortable because the evenings cooled off enough to sleep. Being on the backside of the hotel there is an Urban House (upscale Hostel) across the street, it does provide some entertainment value but is quite noisy especially on Friday and Saturday nights making opening the windows ill advised.

Overall we enjoyed our stay.

Very cramped and poorly designed
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

The hotel seems to be two or more building fused together and not very well. The hallways are bumpy and the ramps are terrible for wheeling bags. Too many stairs and too many confusing entrances. Also, the room was tiny and the shower could barely fit a Normal size person. Expected better for the price.
