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

We only stayed one night but it was most enjoyable. Lovely clean and bright room and the staff were very friendly. Scott who greeted us at the reception desk was very friendly and helpful. The room was very bright and clean. We would certainly stay here again and would recommend it to our family and friends.

The staff is the worst! They don't like foreigners, they don't do one movement to help or make you feel welcomed. I was welcomed everywhere in Scandinavia and especially in Danmark but at First Hotel I felt that they would prefer not being there and doing what they do.

The hotel needs restoration. Old carpets and grey towels. Ok breakfast but no one told me I had to buy a ticket to get admission to the breakfast room. Not the best location and a strip club across the street. Nice to jog around the small lakes....

The Hotel Position is great! Breakfast can be improved, no equality between price and offers. Staff are nice, except for 2 people, but ok. No minibar in the room If for someone could be a problem and no cotton or toothbrush in the bathroom,you can have them by paying! Generally great for few days!

Nice hotel close to the railway station (which is nice when you`re travelling from/to the airport). Short walk (2 min) to the railway station and places like Tivoli (5 min), Strøget (10 min). Perfect for my purpose when i was travelling to Copenhagen. Nice bed and good cleaning. Paid about 90 Euros per night.

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
