A nice hotel centrally located. Clean rooms and friendly staff. Easy check in and check out. I did not try the breakfast though. As expected, you get what you pay for. I recommend a stay at the hotel.

If you are not planning to spend a lot of time in you room, then this is the hotel for you. The location is great when it comes to the distance to the train station and many of the museums. There are, however, quite a few night clubs in the area, especially ones employing ladies who do not wear to... More

Sufficient hotel. Situated close to the Central Train Station of Copenhagen. Location is close to the city center. Towards city center you can easily go by foot. To see the little mermaid it is more easy to rent a bike. For a weekends stay this hotel is sufficient.

I stayed her with my partner for 2 nights in March. The hotel is very central only 2 streets from the train station. The reception team were welcoming and helpful during our stay. The room was quite small but as we only spent around 12 hours in total in the room, this wasn't an issue. The room was clean and... More

Nice hotel in Copenhagen City. Close to shopping, main train station, Tivoli and a lot off restaurants and bars. Sometime difficult to park nearby, and all parking i CPH. City is charged. Always nice staff and easy booking... I will be back...

The hotel was very close to the train station - though area was a bit rough (there's a strip joint accross the street from this hotel as well as another next door and there were many ''ladies of the night'' hanging around the adjacent street). The service was great though, very friendly reception staff. Decent breakfast. The hotel is bit... More

The hotel is not "brand new" and needs a restyling. The position is not bad, but 2 night clubs close to the hotel (one beside and one in front) is not a real attraction for everyone. Not easy to find a free-of-charge parking.

We had a very pleasant stay at First Hotel Excelsior! We were welcomed warmly and even got medical help during an emergency. The staff is very friendly! The room was as we expected it, breakfast range was a bit small, but ok.

Nice hotel. Good value for money. Hotel placed close to public transport. Parking is however not the best as you have to walk quite a distance. Breakfast was good, and service is good. Nice and quiet.
