I had a room facing the street in July. There was LOUD street-noise all Thursday-night long in the summer. All street rooms face the sun (south or west) and this heats up the room (the sun stays up forever in Copenhagen's summer). There is no air conditioning so the windows must be kept open so all the noise comes in... More

We stayed here for one night in June, walking to the hotel felt safe enough during the day but that was a different story at night.. There were 3 prostitues who stood directly outside the hotel and there was also a man who was approaching by passers 'trying to befriend them' and then stealing their wallets!! This was horrible to... More

This area borders on a "red light" district. There were porn shops and strip clubs all over the area. Big disappointment. Breakfast buffet was nice. Staff were helpful. Rooms were below average and connected to a Hostel.

It is positioned very close to the main train station. Nice area with many cafes and restaurants. Walking distance to the main sightseeing attractions. Nice breakfast (although not offering fresh fruits). Quite room (at least the one that I stayed). Negative: Narrow doors and corridors - so difficult to move with big luggage or a stroller.

This little hotel was all that it advertised. Great location and easy to find about 2 blocks from the central metro station and a very helpful staff. The room was tiny but very clean and the bed was quite comfortable. I would definitely stay there again! A suggestion would be to purchase the breakfast rather trying to find somewhere else... More

We booked 4 twin rooms for our 1 night pre-cruise stay in early June 2014. Two rooms were on the 2nd floor, and I would not recommend these as they were rather worn and dated. The other two were on the 4th floor, which were marginally better, seemed to be refurbished recently. So when we returned for 2 nights post-cruise... More

The location of this hotel cannot be faulted. It is minutes from Central Station, near some shops for the basics and very convenient to walk into central Copenhagen. However it is at the edge of the red light district and so can feel a little intimidating late at night, although it is still safe. The staff are very friendly, welcoming... More

In total we stayed at the hotel for 3 nights. The first two nights on the top floor at level 5 and would recommend that level. The last night also on level 5. This is one of few family hotels started by the grandparents in the 1930's. The staff, in my view are exceptional. The rooms are clean and the... More
