Very good location and service, fine breakfast (but it wasn't 7:00-11:00, we couldn't get coffee after 10:30 and everything was already cleaned). Reasonable price. We were not satisfy with bed and tv-chanels.

Had originally booked another hotel and was transferred here due to overbooking - stayed in a so-called "superior" double-room; Despite being alone, I found to fairly small with no floor space for luggage and only a very tiny work area with a chair that did not allow for a decent working position. The mattresses were of the super soft kind,... More

We were not told that the hotel was under construction when booking online, but when we went to check in there was no reception and told to walk to a hotel which it is being connected. The hotel was a building site.

Our stay at the first hotel Excelsior was very good although they where doing some changes to the hotel and the construction site was bothersome. On the other hand they made up for it with great staff and service along with a great breakfast buffet. Also the location of the hotel is the best for a tourist since it's close... More

Hotel is in good location, but at the moment under construction. The beds were very narrow and sagged. SAS should do a better check of the rooms they are offering through travel bonus award program. This was not SAS quality.

Hotel under reovation. Many things not working out so well. No one in breakfast room understands English. Not so easy to come to your room. You have to cross a inner yard were people working, Dirty, wet.

The First Hotel Excelsior is under construction and not fit for tourists. The First Mayfair, to which we were transferred was wonderful in every way: comfortable room, great location, wonderful breakfast, and friendly, attentive staff. The rating below refers to the First Mayfair.

Location, service, value for money, as always nice staff. No parking exept i the streets - that is sometime a problem. It can be difficult too make a reservation if you are a member of the First Hotel.

Hotel is well located just close to everything . Tivoli gardens and restaurants are 5 minutes away as well as city hall . We had a bad smell in our room so they gave us a better room at same time . Staff were very gentle , polite and helpful . Breakfast buffet was good (just what is needed)

I will start my review by telling you that the hotel is currently in a merging process with First Hotel Mayfair that is on the other side of the building, so hopefully this process also involves renovating the rooms in the Excelsior part of the hotel, so that what I write about the room might not be the same in...

Staying in Inner Vesterbro

Neighborhood Profile
Inner Vesterbro
This neighbourhood is home to Tivoli Gardens, a world famous amusement park and beautiful garden always worth a visit. Just west of Tivoli, you’ll find Copenhagen Central Station, from where you can reach just about every part of Denmark within 5 or 6 hours, or you can reach Copenhagen Airport in less than 15 minutes. Next to the Central Station, you’re in the middle of “old” Vesterbro, where several cultures and hundreds of languages are spoken in an area not more than one square mile. This neighbourhood is considered one of the most trendy places to live in and to visit in Copenhagen. For a real treat, visit Kødbyen ("meat town"), home to several restaurants, cafés and nightclubs, all within a short walk of each other.
