Dear Saltmal First of all thank you for your nice review. We are glad that you had a good stay - besides minor flaws. Our cups may look like plastic, but they are not. They are made of an environmentally friendly material (corn) and they dissolves easily. However, you may like a glass more, and also we regularly debate if... More

We resided at the ISBENS Hotel, Vendersgade 23, Copenhagen on June 26-29, 2014. As anticipated, the rooms are very small for the price. The staff was very professional and kind, and provided assistance. Service was very good. Dr. Daniel Stabile, Falls Church, Va

The Ibsen is very well located, a short walk from Norreport train and metro station, so don't take a taxi from the airport. We had a triple room and it was spacious on the top floor, even with a walk in robe. There are no extras in the rooms, no toiletries except a soap dispenser, no fridge or air conditioning.... More

Dear guest Thank you for you review. We are glad that your overall experience was good. I have a few comments to add. Regarding the toiletries, we have worked for a while on making changes on the bathroom. We will soon equip the bathrooms with a new brand of toiletries instead of dispensers. True we don’t have A/C. Denmark is... More

We actually enjoyed our 2 nights in this hotel. Very small rooms and as in most Danish hotels there is no soap bars or closets!! Nice staff (even though we got our room without it being cleaned from former guests)!! With that said nice boutique hotel with decent breakfast centrally located.

This fine hotel is filled with Danish design (Hay) and has a great young atmosphere situated in an old place. Nice restaurants and bars nearby. If the carpet is replaced by something a little bit cleaner and the bathroom was just a little bit bigger it would be perfect.

We chose Ibsens for its central location, close to the Metro, and for its reasonable price. The quality of the hotel was very good for the price and location. Yes, the rooms are small, but typical of Europe. The beds and bathroom fixtures are of high quality. The rooms are quiet with the windows closed; but if you want some... More

This hotel was recommended by Rick Steves. We found it to be a good stay. We are on the sixth floor with a larger room. However, it is still European small – especially the bathroom. Beds are comfortable and the staff is very helpful. It is about two blocks from the metro (which goes to the airport )and about a... More

I came back to this hotel only because the sister hotel Kong Arthur didn't have a space for me and two of my coworkers for the last night of a business trip to Copenhagen. The rest of the group was at the Kong Arthur. Here are my thoughts... - It looks like the rooms have been renovated but in a... More

Dear traveler Thank you for taking your time to write a thorough review. I don’t know when you stayed here the last time, but I guess it must have been several years ago, since Ibsens hotel was refurbished in 2011. The refurbishment was carried out by a well-known Danish interior designer, Morten Hedegaard. The idea was to mix vintage and... More

The hotel was very nice and charming. It was easily reached by metro from the airport and walking distance form the main attractions in the center. The staff was helpful and they even printed us a schedule when we needed to go a bit outside the city center by bus. The rooms were clean but quite small.

This little hotel is out of the main area of downtown Copenhagen, so a bit of walking is involved, or an expensive taxi ride. Fabulous staff who did all they could to make amends for transferring us to another property after overbooking the hotel. Great breakfast. Nice Italian restaurant attached to the hotel.
