I had low expectations about the hotel after reading reviews that it was shabby. Well, those looking for complete luxury should go to D'Angletere -- recently renovated and probably above any other hotel in the city, but then the price would be different. Phoenix is very conveniently located close to the main shopping street, near many restaurants, and the main attractions. If you turn left, within half a kilometer is the main square where the guards change and one of the biggest churches, and another kilometer or so a nice park close to the mermaid. If you go right from the hotel, there is the Nytorv with all the attractions.
Phoenix is traditionally-designed, no frills 4-star hotel, dated grandeur style (non-Ikea) interior. My room (for two adults and a kid), was on second floor, was of reasonable size and quality. Beds were a little too soft for my liking. The mini-bar was not cooling very well, but nothing critical. Bathroom was functioning, cold and hot water was running fine. Perfectly capable of having a shower in the mornings. Wifi was free and fuctioning well. I watched the world soccer cup on the LG flat-screen TV -- was ok, but the list of TV channels was not extensive.
Breakfast was also no-frills but had all the usual things -- orange juice (not freshly squeezed), 2-3 other juices, 2-3 choices of cheese, 2-3 choices of ham and sausages, eggs, tea, coffee, fruit salad, good choice of bread and pastries (again not as sophisticatd as in Anletere, no champagne at breakfast).
People compain it has no air-conditioning. I am not sure you need one in Copenhagen. This is not Dubai.
Overall, if you are not looking for 5-star experience, fancy spa or gym facilities and want a reasonable place to spend a couple of nights in Copenhagen for a non-exhorbitant price, I would think this is a good choice of a hotel in central Copenhagen.
