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

We stayed one night at this hotel in the begnning of December. We arrived to the hotel around 12 PM - and asked if it was possible to check-in early. The receptionist Scot, clearly in a bad mood, told us in a very unfriendly way that check-in is from 15 and pointed towards the luggageroom where we could leave our... 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.

Enjoyed my stay. The staff was friendly and helpful. Great location as it was within a short walking distance to the train station and city centre. The wallpaper in the room needed some attention but overall it was clean. Would stay again.

Rooms are ok for price/quality, but bathroom was freezing cold (6-8 degrees outside). Very low water pressure so takes a lot of time to get the shampoo out of your hair. Some noice from outside / nightclub next to hotel. Breakfast ok but down in the basement. Rooms were clean, small bed.

Really enjoyed it here- budget price and really clean rooms in a central location- all you can really ask for! The staff were super friendly, and went out of their way to make our stay more enjoyable. Only stayed one night, but will hopefully be back.

Hotel was better than I expected with budget price. location was good: right next to the railway station and easy to find. Spacious and clean double room for two, friendly staff, very good breakfast. Only minus is that the walls were quite thin. I highly recommend to rent bikes, and bicycle around the city.

The hotel is average but the bed was very small. One problem is that staying at the hotel should earn you points ppb the EuroBonus frequent flyer membership, but they refuse to do it, saying that orders through booking.com should not receive those points. It's really disappointing and makes me not want to get back to the hotel.

Will not recommend this hotel- the chef of the place is really weird. Have never experienced a more rude hotel manager in any place of the world. I'm a 'geniusmember' of booking.com, because I book many rooms throughout the year. I have never ever been kicked out of a hotel- but that happened today because I asked if my dog... More
