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.

Everybody sholud know that hotel is placed in the middle RED light district. When You stop your car ladies and drug selers find You as a potential costomer. It do not impress me much... Possible parking far from hotel.

This hotel was a really great deal in an expensive city. The location was ideal, a 5 minute walk from the central station and the Tivoli Gardens. The the staff were helpful and friendly. You couldn't ask for more for this price.

A good value for money hotel with excellent staff in the heart of copenhagen. Rooms are a good size and clean. Beds very comfortable and no noise from the street despite the central location. I will use the hotel again on future visits to Copenhagen and am happy to recommend the place to others.

Great location, great staff, it might be the best value for money in Central Copenhagen. Rooms overlooking a nice backyard is peaceful. Breakfast is more average, but it might be improved if we all give them this feedback :-)

Nice hotel, a lot of sex clubs in the area though. The location is good with a lot of good restaurants nearby. One negative thing is that in the night Istergade is populated by a lot of drug dealers and prostitutes. But the area is nice anyway with a lot of restaurants and really close to Tivoli and in walking... More

Small room fine for a business trip but would be a little cramped if their was a couple. Room was quiet overlooking a court yard at the back of the building. Friendly staff, great breakfast and very handy to all the local attractions.
