4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel is located in a downtown area. Breakfast was excellent. Internet worked well. The staff was friendly, helping us by printing boarding passes for our flight. Check-in is very late (just after 15:00). The area for the shower in the bathroom is very small and it is no shower cabin, but only a curtain, very uncomfortable.

Everything costs money. Even tea and coffee cost money here. Checking in early is 100 KR extra even though room is vacant. Room too small and bed too tiny. I wouldn't stay there again. They must work on this.

Booked a superior room, ended up with a small room ground floor facing the noisy street. Didn't sleep much unfortunately. The service desk promptly told me that no other rooms were available. I have been a couple of times to the same hotel already and a GHA member, they should take better care of their frequent guests.

Bathroom was old style and no heating. It was too cold. In place of one double bed, hotel has provided 2 single bed. Room was old style and there was no locker to keep the belongings. Breakfast was good.

The breakfast consists of semifinished products. The breakfast was a problem! Good location, nice staff! We booked a double room but got twin beds instead which was unfortunate. The windows were very beautiful!

Everything was very nice! The staff was friendly and we were able to check-in earlier without any problems. The breakfast was really nice with fresh baked bread. Only funny thing is the gentlemens club right across the street but it didnt disturb us at all and the street was really calm as well.

If you want a cheap hotel, smack bang in the middle of Copenhagen, you could hardly do better. The rooms are bright and clean, the staff are polyglot and extremely helpful, and the breakfasts offer a range and quality rarely seen for the price. There are drawbacks, though. If you demand a kettle and tea bags in your hotel rooms,... More

A nice hotel centrally located. Clean rooms and friendly staff. Easy check in and check out. I did not try the breakfast though. As expected, you get what you pay for. I recommend a stay at the hotel.

If you are not planning to spend a lot of time in you room, then this is the hotel for you. The location is great when it comes to the distance to the train station and many of the museums. There are, however, quite a few night clubs in the area, especially ones employing ladies who do not wear to... More
