“Basic, but close to everything”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2012

We stayed for a weekend, and got a big and bright room. It was a bit noisy because the hotel is located right next to the train station, and the room was too warm to keep the balcony door closed. The drain in the bathroom didn't work properly, so the floor was flooded when we showered. The location suited us perfectly, as it's close to the shopping and restaurant areas. The breakfast was disappointing, especially as far as the vegan/vegetarian selection goes.

To sum it all up, it was just OK, and not what I expected in this price range.

I staid here for a couple of nights for a work trip to Copenhagen and I honestly could not bring myself to like the place.
The overall look and feel of the place (no room service, no in room wifi, no mini bar) is that of one of those hostels where you can get private rooms as well as dorms.
I didn't find it modern I found it squalid and shabby. Both room and bathroom are spacious but everything is absolutely plain, white, with nothing to cheer up the environment. The bathroom (specially the sink) could do with a bit of refurbishing as some items (specially the sink) are very old.
It was although clean and sleep quality good (it is by the train station but from the 3rd floor you could barely hear the trains in the distance).
Good points about it:
- breakfast was tasty
- the hotel is located within a sports center with gym and swimming pool that you can access for a decent fee (30 DKK for hotel guests)
- walking distance from both Tivoli and downtown
- right beside the train station

Beside this I found it sad. even for an average business hotel and incredibly overpriced (238€ for a room which is not worth it: ok we're in Denmark and everything is expensive but it felt like a rip off!). Maybe I don't fully understand Danish minimalism....

Because it was hot in te room and no air conditioning, we wanted to keep the windows open but we soon had to close them due to the fact it was too noisy because of the noises of the trains which is competetive all night! Although there was no air conditioning, we had a fan whick had to stay on all night as it was so hot! The fan made a horrible sound which was annoying and went on all night long reapeting over and over again! I enjoyed how near the hotel was to everything apart from the train station! Overall i liked my stay at DGI byen as they also have free wifi!

everything is and looks dated. Great swimming pool (sizewise) but is in fact a swimming pool next door and there is an extra charge.
Most disappointing of all: there is no air-conditioning in the rooms and when it's warm you still don't want to sleep with the window open because of the noise from the train station on the other side of the street.

Nothing actually wrong with this place and it's in a good location - but don't whatever you do assume it's an 'occasion' place. Rooms are basic, there's no WiFi except in the public places and I've never been to a hotel that asked me to pay extra for the tea and coffee in my room before (you are given a kettle but have to go and buy the tea/coffee from reception). Frankly when I arrived tired it wasn't the money, it was having to drag myself back to reception again before I could have a hot drink that rankled.

Breakfast buffet is fine as long as you didn't want anything hot - so, basic but workable and within easy walk of a lot of the sights and excellent eateries, Tivoli etc.
