Stayed here for 4 nights as part of a month long trip in the Scandinavian countries. Though the hotel is very conveniently located in regards to transportation it is in much need of some renovation and basic maintenance. We were in a room overlooking the city street. Since there is no air/heat/ventilation system (it is a very old hotel) we... More

We expected a high class hotel as it we paid $ 426 for one night with breakfast for two adults and an extra bed in the room for our daughter. It is an ok hotel, but prices simply does not follow along with the quality.

Very helpful and friendly staff. Nice breakfast and very good restaurant in the hotel. Somewhat old hotel and it showed in some places. Good room standard. Small bathroom and bathtub. Bathroom needs updating. Otherwise ok room.

First thing when you arrive, they ask for a deposit (in addition to the price of the room) in case you destroy the room. While it wasn´t that much money (I think around 20 euros), it´s not a very welcoming greeting that they don´t trust their guests. However, I don´t think they ever even refunded me this money. We asked... More

First impressions were good as we pulled up outside in the taxi - Cost from Airport to hotel approx 400 DK but taxi back to airport from hotel was only 200DK???? This is an old imposing building with a restaurant façade at the side of the main entrance and external seating alongside the cycle paths that are a great feature... More

Not very good that you did take reservation money 3 times. Room is very warm and a bit run down. Empty bottle was not taken from the room. Bathroom was very run down and need a update. Sheets was dirty.

Loved the convenience to the Trainstation for easy transfer to Copenhagen Airport. Charming hotel with an authentic old school feel. Complimentary chilled sparkling water was a welcomed treat after a long day of sight-seeing by foot on cobblestoned streets! On-site Restaurant looked inviting, though we didn't manage to try as the nearby coffe-houses and quaint local restaurants beckoned! Appreciated options... More

We liked our room very much, accept that that we noticed the street noise in the late evening and early am. I had requested a quiet room when making the reservation. In the future will always ask if the request was honored. We liked our room and if we had stayed another night, may have asked to move to one... More
