Brilliant location! Would not recommend a room facing the street if you want to sleep at night without earplugs though. On the 3 nights we had here no one cleaned our room or changed our towels, had to ask for clean towels ourselves. The reception at daytime was very pleasant and serviceminded. Poorly cleaned rooms with bad smelling shower curtain... More

This review is for a single night. Had a second floor bedroom, on the small side but perfectly adequate for two people. Came in during the late morning and check-in was not yet available. We had a bunch of bags and were directed to the complimentary luggage keep room. Plenty of shelves and room for all types of bags. The... More

Very overpriced and nothing I can recommend to anyone. No hair dryer in the room, not enough toilet paper, only one towel for two people to share, very soft beds and cheap pillows and the overall standard of the room was very low. Breakfast was OK.

I took a trip to copenhagen with my boyfriend, and the hotel was perfectly located in the middle of the city. The breakfast was amazing, the rooms were totally fine(the bathrooms were so classy!) and it felt really good staying there during the weekend.

This hotel is well located, close to railway station(central) and Tivoli park. Also easy to reach pedestrian area inside the city. But for the price, other services are poor ; no air-condition, small rooms, noisy corridors. The breakfast is basic and the most important for driving visitors, parking is difficult even if a distant solution is offered at a 50%... More

The staff here were very unfriendly - reception would not let us book in until exactly 3pm on the dot. The breakfast staff were just plain rude each morning. The hotel is in a back road with one strip joint next door and another opposite. The rooms are small and have no air-con. We had a double bed just about... More

Good location and great service. Do however lay in a noisy street and since there is no AC we had to open the windows at night - it resulted in a sleepless night. The staff is friendly and smiling. The hotel has bike rental for 20 USD a day
