“Do they still make TV's that small?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

This well known cruise ship package feature is a well designed,compact comfortably clean hotel. The service is excellent. I found breakfast in the dining room excellent. I was not a member of their loyalty club so I did not get a peek at the club on 22nd floor... very sad...
The locations was outstanding. There is a little market behind the hotel offering snacks, drinks to offset the overpriced mini bar array.
Astonishing was the size of the television. I think it was about 14 inches... 19 inches tops... in this age large screen flat screens I felt as though I was in a time warp... or, perhaps, prison.
The rooms are small but well furnished. The bathrooms are modern and functional.
If you cruising or just musing this is a pleasant hotel to spends a few days.

Room Tip: my view from a standard room on the 8th floor was excellent

I first stayed at the Radisson Blu Royal Copenhagen some 16 years ago during a family trip to Scandinavia. At the time it was state of the art. Now it is still very good and very convenient. The staff are lovely and the price is not unreasonable for overpriced Copenhagen. It is starting to show its age, though: the drain in my bathtub was very slow and the flush valve of the toilet would stick open. Still, these were minor annoyances all things considered

We stayed here, prior to our Baltic cruise and loved the historic Danish design, great service and central location. Very convenient base camp for exploring Copenhagen. We had a club room with great views. I agree with the rest of the reviewers that breakfast on the 20 th floor was a real treat. We would return!

We stayed here at the end of a two week trip, preceded by a ten day cruise on Crystal. It was a great way to wind down and wrap up a great vacation. The location is superb ... right across from Tivoli. Service was excellent, as were the accomodations. If we return to Copenhagen, we will stay here.

For anyone who is interested in architecture and design, this hotel should be on the list to stay or at least to visit. Designed by Arne Jacobsen, the famed Danish architect in 1950s, the building was anything but controversial at the time. He also designed the furnishing for the hotel, among which, the egg and swan chairs became international icons.
The hotel is well situated, close to the train station, Tivoli and city hall. As a compact city, everything is within walking or biking distance. We stayed in a corner room on floor six with a great view of the city. Surprisingly spacious room and a huge bathroom. The retro vintage decor was simply delicious for us as if we were living in a 50s movie. There is an original Arne Jacobsen suite on our floor that we did get a chance to peek in, and that was quite amazing.
Besides the design pedigree, the hotel was well run and very comfortable. The front desk was very efficient for check in and out and luggage storage etc.
The only reason it didn't receive a five star from us was that the top floor restaurant denied our entry to have a drink one eve and to view the city above. It only sits dinning guests according to them, which we thought was a bit nutty. Well maybe that's their policy, but it was a little surprising.

Room Tip: if you are a design enthusiastic, the Arne Jacobsen suite is open for booking. We didn't know th...

Dear FlyingSocks,
Thank you for your feedback and for taking the time to rate us. We are delighted to read that you enjoyed your stay, our staff service and the experience at our Historical Arne Jacobsen Design Hotel :-) We are sorry that your expectations were not met regarding the drink in Alberto K. This is a well visited gourmet restaurant with not many seats available therefore it's only possible for dining guests. We do hope to welcome you again soon and maybe you can try our fantastic dinner in Alberto K :-)

We just spent 5 days and 4 nights at this wonderful hotel! We are on a pre-cruise to the Baltic Sea and wanted to spend sometime getting to see Copenhagen. I must say this is the best location to see the whole area. Walking a few blocks you can take a train to any city the station is so close.
Our room was fantastic, clean, bright on the 19th floor not facing Tivoli park but we got to see beautiful sunsets every night.
The hotel staff was great and I enjoyed the Danish decor clean and minimal but sufficient. Great bed and love the heated bathroom floor. We spent everyday walking the city which is what we prefer to do but there are all forms of transportation right out the door. We did the free walking tours which were both great to get to know the city.
Bottled water is quite expensive you can pay between 10 krona to 45 krona for 24 oz. ($2.00 to $20.00) but down the street is a market Rama 1000 you can get 2 liters for 4.5 krona which I'd about $1.00! ( just be sure it is mineral water not carbonated or Brus as they say here) unless that is what you want.
We had rain and sunshine but it was a great trip no matter what the weather would stay here again if we ever get the chance!

Room Tip: If possible get a top floor enjoy the view

We chose this hotel primarily because we needed a place with Airconditioning.

Trip advisor should add a rating between average and very good, as this fit somewhere in between. was justabove average in my view.

I booked ia family room on booking.com for 400 odd dollars a night and was one of the few hotels whose response time was very slow, and also in some ways inaccurate.

We had requested for a corner room if possible on a higher floor, and after a second attempt at getting a response , were informed that their family rooms are from the 4th to 6th floors.
However on check in we were given a room on the 3rd floor, so clearly inaccurate info feedback.
We arrived at 11am, but the room was apparently not ready so went out, and came back by 2.30pm. So early check in is luck I guess.

The room (305) to be fair was decent sized with a double bed, a desk in between a double extra bed on the other side, so was very comfortable. However if you need a king instead of two singles joined, be sure to specify and chase up on it.
There were two bathrooms, one with tub, and one with a small cubicle, and we for bathing only used the larger one with the tub. But having 2 loos definitely helped a lot with 2 kids.
The airconditioning worked fine which was a boon.
The only thing was that the room like the hotel does look a bit tired and dated and would be fabulous if given a good facelift!
Although the room overlooked the central station and the track, as well as tivoli on the side but too low to look inside, it was surprisingly NOT noisy at all, and we were in the rooms at all different times through the various days. I mean very mild rumblings of the train rather far apart, but not disturbing at all, and we are quite finicky about this point. Was lovely seeing the Tivoli fireworks on the weekend, as they were spectacular!

Location is the main thing the hotel has going for it!!! 2 min walk from central station, Tivoli gardens, and 6-8 mins to the beginning of Stroget (long) main shopping street.

On check in were told breakfast would be on the 20th floor, but the next day were informed that had been said by mistake and was in the lobby. In the US, could have held them to it, here clearly not.
Breakfast was decent, usual bread selections, cheese selections, meat selections, sausages, cerals, mushrooms, scrambled & boiled eggs and some fruit.
Waffles to order were great! Service could have been better.

Wifi is free and not bad. there is no pool and didnt use gym.

All in all a good stay, as fab location, extremely central. No plushness or luxury, but we are in scandinavia, and with a bit of refurbishment to the hotel, and slightly better service, would rate it very very good.

Room Tip: Family rooms are good size for sure, dont feel cramped even with 2 kids.
