We stayed for a weekend in June - one of the poorer hotels we have visited. Copenhagen is an expensive city however this hotel was overpriced (c £160 per night) for a poorly decorated & standard of room. Shower leaks all over the bathroom floor, pillows are half a normal pillow size and dooner does not cover the bed. We...

pros: The room was spacious and had a lot of natural light (got 3 big windows), everything was clean. The staff is good and the location is excellent, walking distance from the little mermaid statue. Breakfast is ok. Free wifi. cons: The shower's drain seems to be a little clogged and the extra bed (tripple room) wasn't that confortable. A...

This is an old-style hotel -sadly not in the nice historical way. This place went without renovation obviously for too long. Seems like the fact that many times all Copenhagen hotels are fully booked anyway makes the management not investing into this place at all. The lobby is OK. The rooms and the corridors however are showing their age. Worn...

Rooms are very cramped with old and uncomfortable furniture. The bathroom in my room isn't clean and the toilet is broken. The receptionist said that it isn't - without checking. Tonight (I am here as I write this) after a long day out working I come back and ask whether the restaurant is still serving food - there is no...

the worst thing was the cleanliness. We saw 5 different rooms because we were complaining and all of them had a few no-go's. Dirty sheets with dark hair and spots on it. Mold on the bathroom walls and the shower curtains. Dirty matresses. Altogether the Level of cleanliness was really bad. In the end they gave us their best room,...

I stayed in this hotel several times and found the quality of the rooms to vary quite a bit (I booked a single). All were quiet and clean, most were ok in size with a double bed and relatively small bathroom, but some were very small - think of a small single bed with a little walking space next to...

I chose the hotel because I had stayed there before. The hotel is very centrally located and, provided you take a room towards the back of the hotel, very calm. The buffet breakfast is great. Unfortunately the service depends on individuals at the registration. I arrive late at night. The room I was had not been cleaned, hair in the...

Neighbourhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
