The First Vesterbro is a classic business hotel. After staying a few nights at the cosy Clarion Hotel Mayfair Copenhagen, the Vesterbro felt somewhat sterile. Given the choice, I'd go for the Clarion every time.
That said, the First Vesterbro has a great location, as mentioned in other reviews - within walking distance of the city centre, railway station etc, and with some nice restaurants nearby.
I was given a double room and it was very spacious - the bed was really really comfortable and there was always hot water for the shower. The people on reception were very helpful ... I was unwell one night and the two guys on the desk couldn't have been kinder. And the breakfast was fantastic - loads of fruit salad, toast, cooked stuff etc.
The big problem for me was that my room overlooked the inner, enclosed courtyard. So if I opened my window, I still didn't get any fresh air, and the room was quite dark. Worse, any noise from downstairs reverberated around the courtyard like in a huge cathedral. Two people having a conversation was enough to jolt you out of a deep sleep so you can imagine the cacophony that was the breakfast preparations. It's a huge design fault. Ask, if you can, for a room with a window to the outside, and at the end of the corridor.
Beware the restaurant and bar in the hotel in the evening - astronomically expensive. Try the Bofhaus round the corner.
