This is not a three star hotel by any means whatsoever. On the positive side, the beds were clean and the bathroom was clean, and there is free WiFi. The Location- in the red Light District!! Not good, A " gentleman's club" next door and Maxims opposite, makes for a noisy and disturbed night. Have to leave the windows open... More

Good location, meaning you can walk to most sites like "Tivoli Gardens" and the main shopping street "Strøget", but this particular street is filled with adult night clubs and bordering red light-establishments. I didn't mind but I find it worth mentioning. Other parts of town are cosier if that's what you're looking for. The staff is nice, the lobby area... More

When we booked we were unaware the area looked so sleazy. Expectations were high and very disappointed when we arrived. Sorry will not be using this hotel again. Enjoyed Copenhagen even though we were only there for a day. Did the boat and bus hop on/off. Very good.

Very conveniently located near the central station, and within walking distance to many of the sites. the room was clean and cozy. The staff was extraordinary and patiently helped me navigate Copenhagen, gave me wonderful recommendations for meals and inside tips for tours. I was in a single room with a twin bed and was pleasantly surprised to find a... More

Great location in central city, on the border of the red light district so always exciting. Rooms aren't amazing but the staff are great... Could do with air con tho plus it can be quite loud and the rooms are small. Ideal for business but not so much pleasure.

We were three friends spending a couple of days in Copenhagen. We ordered one room for all of us. The room was pretty small. It felt clean, but not as pretty as the photos we saw when ordering. There was one large double bed, and one small, much less attractive single bed. The single bed was kind of a downer,... More

The room we booked was quite small and a little old fashioned, but clean and had everything we need. The breakfast was nice, but quite expensive. Staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is very close to the train station and Tivoli

It's a big rip-off!! Really expensive and the room was stinky, the beds and pillows were bed, there was no air conditioner, we couldn't even sleep because of the high temperature inside the bedroom and they didn't clean the room during our stay. They just took the rubbish and that's it and we think that they don't clean the carpet... More

The positive side of this hotel is its location, close to the train station of Copenhagen. The breakfast facility is in a basement, totally outdated. The rooms have no air conditioning, but if one opens the windows one is bothered by either the rumors of the street (nightclubs) or the neighbours.
