Breakfast was not included. Perfect location (5 minutes from central station). Clean rooms, modern furniture, small and old room. Toilets and 2 showers in the corridor. Sometimes lukewarm water. Plus: own sink on the room. Feeling that we were on a school trip. The Annex is inside the Absalon. No noise from outside. Summary: no luxuru, but good enough for... More

The first thing we noticed when we open the door to the room was the smell of old furniture, old carpet, everything was very old. The bathroom had rust on the sync and bathtub! The breakfast was small, they have only could breakfast and like a kid next to me said " the worst breakfast ever"!!!

We were pleasantly surprised with the Absalon. The staff were brilliant and we had a fantastic room on the top floor. Our room was plenty big enough but some others in our party said their room was small. We had a good bathroom with a tub. Breakfast was very good and set us up for the day, although there was...

Most reviews of the Absalon talk about an average experience that seems good enough for most people traveling through Copenhagen. They are pretty much right on. The rooms are reasonable size, clean, a little run down, and a bit noisy. The breakfast was unexceptional and missing important things like fresh hot items and variety. The location is the real selling... More

We booked a room there just one night, with two beds in the Annex section. We had a great view from the window, the bed were very comfortable, the staff was very nice with us and we even had a small sink right in the room! We could hear some fireworks on Saturday because the window was open during the... More

After reading several reviews about this hotel i was apprehensive in staying here, but after my 3 night stay i can honestly say that it wasn’t that bad. The Staff was extremely nice and the room clean (and recently renovated). One of the biggest complaints is the fact that the hotel is located in the red-light district. I didn’t feel... More

As long as you don't expect to get more than you pay for, this is a good choice in the very heart of Copenhagen, two blocks from the central station and Tivoli. Be aware that rooms are a little warm and if you open the window you will be exposed to the weekend celebrations all night Friday and Saturday.
