We booked this hotel last minute as we were looking for a sleepover hotel near the airport - and must say we were pleasantly surprised by it! It's a very nice small boutique hotel with lots of attention to detail. Apparently, 3 couples bought this place in 2015 and set on an adventure to build their dream hotel. Danes are world famous for their sense of design and you can see elements of that clean, chic, cool Scandanavian design all over the hotel.
Location : It is a short taxi ride to the airport (150 DKK) and according to other reviews a short walk to Legoland. The reception desk ordered the taxi for us - so no hassle in getting to the airport.
Rooms : The room we managed to snatch last minute was a bit small but was functional - One double bed and a bunk bed - so can easily sleep a family of four. (Note to the management - The bunk bed was creaky (room 16) so a bit annoying). There is very little floor space so it can feel a little claustrophobic bit We didn't mind it for one night. We did pass some larger rooms in the hallway.. So they do exist in the hotel (just not available last mimute I presume). It is important to note that there are no elevators in this hotel..so if you have heavy luggage you will need to carry it up and down the stairs yourself.
Food : There is a restaurant in the hotel which is very chic and inviting. My husband and daughter had dinner there - said the food was good. Breakfast is basic Danish breakfast (fresh breakfast buns, cheese, yogurt, scrambled eggs, fruit, juice, coffee, etc.) - only served till 10:00 a.m. but they were nice enough to let us eat just a little bit after 10 am.
Also, there is a store attached to the hotel which sells high quality chocolates, wine, cheese, drinks and small Danish decor items.
All in all.. the hotel met our needs and I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a sleepover hotel or an alternative to the overpriced Lego hotel and an authentic Scandanavian experience.
