The room was terrible. Smal bed and very smal rom. Nice staff. Okej breakfast. God location, near the trainstation Not so far to Tivoli or Ströget. No parking area you hade to park on the Street. I will not go bak again.

Good location if you like stripping bars and the smell of urin in the streets, if this is not your hobby, stay away. Don't trust the male staff in the reception, they will try to rip you off and they don't know what service means.

Our stay at the hotel was short, but good. The breakfast was not too enjoyable, but we chose to eat at a café nearby instead based on a reccomondation from another guest. The location of the hotel is great if you don't mind having two gentlemen clubs right outside the entrance..

Nice hotel, with great location. Small rooms, but the standard is good. Bathrooms could need a redo - but overall good enough. The hotel is not very well adapted to users of wheelchair. Friendly staff. Good breakfast, but breakfast area could be better designed for effective serving and seating.

Excellent location. Clean room, especially bathroom. No fridge in the room. Nice bed. Little noisy on some nights but closing windows helped. Our room was on inner court side. Friendly staff. Versatile breakfast. Nothing bad to say.

The location of this hotel is great and the staff was extremely helpful giving ideas of where to go and what to see. We lost a hat one night in the lobby (presumably) and they had it in their lost and found. We had about a 10-20 minute walk to Nyhavn and many other locations. We ate breakfast at the... More

Poor condition of the room, with close to zero ventilation. Good location, with walking distance to all main atractions. Nice (but small) breakfast buffe, which had everything you need. The room was extremly small, and we got the feeling that a total refurbishment is necessary.

Although hotel location is very good (very close to main train station and good restaurants) and most of the staff is friendly and helpful, this hotel had a couple of big problems. Even for European hotels, the "Queen-Superior" size bed offered by this hotel for a 2-person reservation was much smaller than normal and not at all adequate for 2... More

A nice and small hotel in the middle of Copenhagen. Near Tivoli and not too far away from the shopping areas. Me and my Girlfriend spent a couple of days here. The room was clean and the bathroom wasnt too small. But since we were spending most of our time in the city we didnt care too much about the... More

Stayed here on a city break for 7 nights. Check in was at 3pm which was fine and the hotel allowed us to leave out bags at the hotel so we could do some sightseeing. Very comfortable rooms and spotlessly clean. Bathrooms tidy and adequate. Good decor and furnishings. Need a mat or handle in shower or gets slippy. Breakfast... More
