Convinient location regarding buses, trains and close to the airport. Not so nice area because of strip show clubs all around. Great breakfast and tv. Our room was nice and quiet enoung but there was only a single blanket for a double bed. One of us was cold when sleeping. The shower tap was usually stuck and not easy to... More

Stayed here on a city break for 2 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. This is based on a 2 night stay and could be... More

I have stayed at a few of Copenhagen's First hotels and the experience has varied considerably. I wouldn't say this was my favourite. In my opinion it felt very cramped, tired and dated interior. The design is dated and the quality of the interior was lacking for my tastes. The room, though having booked a double, was a small twin... More

We were surprised by how central this hotel is. This is only 3 minutes of walking to central station, major cross road of all HOHO buses, shops and restaurants...Across from a strip club but we feel quite safe. Room was clean, breakfast ( paid separately) was very good. Scott, the front desk guy who happens to come from the USA,... More

We where 4 friends travelling together and booked 2 double rooms. A week before one of my friends had to cancel so we contacted the hotel to change the booking to 1 single room and 1 double room. This was not possible, they said, because there where no single rooms left. They pointed out that even if there was only... More

A nice and centrally located hotel for a business trip or short stay in Copenhagen. The hallway to the room was not very welcoming and the room was small. But it was very clean and comfortable and had a good shower and a well working wifi.

This place has a great location, is cheap (relative to Copenhagen), clean, and friendly. It is no frills so don't expect a coffee maker in the room. They have a breakfast buffet, travel brochures, hot shower, and plugs for my gadgets. If I were a Euro businessman this place wouldn't make the cut. As an American tourist who spends total... More

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. We chose it based on central location, as one in the group rely on a wheel chair and we were looking for easy access to city centre. Comfortable beds, good breakfast. We had seen some reviews that there was noise from the street, but even though we had a room facing the street... More

Near Tivoli, circus, railroad station, real god location. No parking at hotel, only parking at street or in a parking house around 10 min. away, with hotel discount (if you park in right area). God breakfast, little soft beds, missing a place in the bathroom to put personal things in. Nice stuff, real helpful about things around the area.
