We stayed 3 nights in this hotel,location wise it was great but we had room on first floor and facing the road so it was quite noisy later in the evening first with traffic then with people returning from night out. Room itself was clean a bit compact , old windows. As the weather was quite warm round 21/22 C... More

Dear Mari S, thank you for your review at Tripadvisor and for staying at First Hotel Kong Frederik while visiting Copenhagen. I’m glad that you enjoyed your stay, indeed we are in an old heritage building and with our great city location it might be noisy if leaving windows open as you describe. We do provide a fan for a...

On check in we were asked if we would like to upgrade for only $50 more a night. We politely declined and were given the worst room in the hotel. There was mildew in the shower. Out of our two windows was massive ductwork and that was all you could see. We ran out of shampoo and body wash and... More

The location was great but the bathroom was very moldy. If you closed all the windows the room was sound proof - it is on a very busy road - but then the room was very hot and stuffy - luckily there was a fan. The hairdryer over heated every 60 seconds and we had to ask for shampoo, condtioner... More

I liked staying at this hotel, the location is very convenient, close to the train station, but quiet, and the breakfast and service are very good! The hotel room was comfortable, the bathroom clean and spacious and the (non-alcoholic) mini-bar that was available was a nice touch!

The hotel is very old with no luggage assistance. Bathroom is a disaster. Cabinet nonexistent, shower/tub enclosure spilt water, small sink; drainage was noisy. Not much of an establishment. Breakfast in adjoining restaurant was good. Hotel is in dire need of a good renovation.

Location is good and nice additional service were you get free drinks in your room and next to the reception. Rooms are too small, very old, not isolated (old windows) so very noisy and appearently not booked proparly. I went with my mom so booked twin rooms months in advance, however they apparently werent available. First night we had to... More

This is my first Trip Advisor rating. The hotel does not offer beer/wine in the mini bar as posted in earlier reviews. That was a bit disappointing. Location is good. Room was sizeable, but counterspace was limited. No airconditioning. Bathroom is basic. Bed was comfortable. Linens were clean. Lighting was poor. They could use more lamps in the sitting room.

We arrived at the Kong Frederick after an overnight flight. We were eager to get into our rooms. Our first room was ready at 3 and it took more than 2 more hours to get into the second room. The rooms are clean and small but nicely appointed. My biggest warning is to carefully select your rooms. We had a... More

Dear Cara M Hutchins, Thank you for staying with us during your last visit to Copenhagen. We always do our best to accommodate our guests needs and requests, and it might therefore take a little bit more time to wait for a specific room in one category at check-in. In a heritage building such as ours, all rooms differ in... More

It should be a nice, cosy old fashioned hotel. It is said that it had been renovated recently. But looking into the bathrom it was not. Old marks on the tiles from an handle that has been there. And something that looked like mold between the bathtube and the tiles. If it wasn´t that it must have been dirt. Not... More
