I stayed at this hotel about 15-20 years ago and when it came time to go back, this was the first hotel I considered.
This hotel has (IMHO) the perfect location in Copenhagen, directly across the street from the Tivoli Gardens with most (half?) of its rooms having a view of the park.
The restaurant on top has magnificent views of the entire city, and while I never ate dinner there, it was great for breakfast (great buffet breakfast, though).
The staff I encountered during my stay were very polite and attentive.
Our room had wall-to-wall windows on the entire width that overlooked the entire Tivoli Park. This was especially nice on the non-rainy nights when they did fireworks.
Now, onto the not-so-good. The rooms now look old, tired, and much of the furniture is worn (literally the couch/loveseats were worn through in places and you could see stuffing showing through). The carpets in the room had some stains/wear, and some of the seams were starting to pucker up.
The design of the rooms/hallway areas now looks very 1970's, and there are a lot of dents/chips/scratch marks that I wouldn't expect from Radisson group hotels. (If you're from the property and would like proof of the wear/tear, I did take some iPhone photos).
Did these defects ruin my holiday? Absolutely not. I payed to stay near Tivoli, and got everything I wanted from that. However, at the room rate that was charged, I expect a little better.
The hotel could definitely use some updating and TLC to make it shine again.
