“Great location, great staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

First impressions are often everything and in the case of this hotel the first impression given by the member of reception staff we met on arrival was very good indeed - friendly, informative, helpful ... and all in perfect English!

The hotel is situated less than a 5-minute walk from the central station, which itself is less than 20 minutes from the airport. A short walk takes you right into the heart of the city, to museums, galleries and the Tivoli Gardens.

Our room was in the front of the building and so experienced some street noise in the early hours. However, the room was nicely decorated and quite well equipped, although tight for space to move around comfortably, especially so in the small en suite shower room. But, most importantly, the bed was comfortable.

Breakfast buffet offered hot and cold choices and was a bit hectic.

Overall a good place to stay for a city break.

Had a fantastic stay at Clarion with my boyfriend this December in Copenhagen. Nice staff and perfect location. Copenhagen is a wonderful city - even when it's cold in the winter. Will definitely come again.

Stayed at the Clarion for 4 nights and it was just perfect! The hotel is just a couple of minutes walking from the train station and don't be put out by the neighbourhood strip club ( you won't be bothered by that). It is walking distance to anywhere in the city. Rooms are small, but nicely decorated and well wquiped. Breakfast is really good and the complimentary supper is a wonderful surprise. You will also be greated in the afternoon with complimentary tea, coffee and cake. The hotel has a really cosy feel, with small and comfortable rooms to unwind. Loved it!

This hotel is perfect, just in right location to explore the city in a very nice neighborhood surrounded by many coffee shops, restaurants and lots of shopping options.
Staff was very helpful and friendly. They offered lots of information related to sightseeing and tour guides. Breakfast was good with plenty of choices. I would definitely recommend this hotel...

I am really just agreeing with the other good reviews. The location is very convenient, staff are friendly, everything is set up to be as easy as possible. And when I arrived late one evening they'd even made a sandwich for me in case I was hungry! As people say, rooms are small but the downstairs areas round the fire are very cozy, and they cheerfully offer 2 internet signons so you can connect your phone and PC at the same time (Also free!). I would certainly use it again and in fact have already used it 3 times.

This is a great little hotel right in the centre of Copenhagen, a short walk from the main train station and many other attractions.

There is a strip club across the road from the entry way, but there was nothing seedy about the area and we never felt worried or threatened. Once inside, we found a really nice hotel lobby, lounge room and dining room. Staff at the front desk where staff were friendly and helpful.

We arrived later than expected on a Sunday night, were cold, tired and hungry. We had missed dinner but were given a large and very nice roll each to take to our room. Excellent!

The room was small but not cramped, spotlessly clean with pleasant furnishings. It overlooked a quiet back lane and we found it very peaceful. Bathroom was fine.

Dinners were excellent. Light and traditional fare and a few other things, including a sweet at the end. Just what was needed at the end of a long, cold day. Drinks cost extra, but very reasonably priced. Breakfast also very good. Newspapers available in the dining room.

I made an error with my booking and needed an additional night. This was no problem for staff who were professional and diplomatic. We were able to stay the final night - in the same room, and were charged a really reasonable rate.

No complaints from us!
