We spent 3 nights here in October 2014. The hotel is a perfect location to explore Copenhagen - close to the train station and Tivoli Gardens (highly recommended for Halloween); the furthest we walked was to the Little Mermaid which was c 60 minutes walk and Nytorv was less than 30 minutes walk. There is of course a metro stop close by however we chose to walk everywhere.
The hotel is lovely - modern yet authentic decor, relaxing cafe/lounge/bar area downstairs (with free coffee all day) and a small but relaxing spa (very nice to relax and warm up here in the winter months with face packs etc).
The rooms are also perfect - our room had a separate bedroom/entrance hallway/en suite with a small balcony looking into a court yard (I believe we had specifically asked for the court yard view as other TripAdvisor reviews had recommended it to avoid hearing street noise). The only thing was we did hear glasses being dumped into a bin one night but only once and didn't disturb us. The room was therefore quiet considering you are in the middle of a busy city (!) and has everything you need (hairdryer, toiletries etc) and you are also supplied with a bathrobe and slippers to go down to the spa in.
Some other reviews had noted the hotel being close to a strip club - there was one on the same street although we never really saw people going in or out and felt very safe walking around at night.
Overall, very relaxing peaceful hotel in a great location and would highly recommend it.
