“Great Stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2008

We have just returned from a trip to Copenhagen to celebrate my Dad's 60th Birthday and I am glad to say that the quality of the hotel did not ruin holiday!
I had booked 4 rooms (as there were a few of us) for 3 nights. I will bullet point my review this time as I tend to waffle on which results in an essay!

Good Points:
- Welcoming reception and staff with contemporary decor and furnishings
- Clean and nicely decorated
- Comfy beds and clean!
- Newly rennovated bathroom with nice fittings
- Staff allowed up to 'save' a large table in a seperate section of the breakfast room and decorate with balloons, banners, etc for a breakfast surprise for our Dad
- Nice outdoor patio/courtyard area lit with candles in the evening making it pleasant for that nightcap
- Breakfast, Continental only, which was nice. Bit of a diabetics nightmare though as lots of sweet breads! Also a bit chaotic with mainly rude european guests pushing through but staff very helpful though
- Restaurants and bakeries within walking distance
- Hotel IS located out of the city centre and is walkable for the medium-fit, takes about 30mins. But you can get the Metro which is a 5 min walk around the corner and trains very regular

Not so Good Points
- Rooms at front of hotel quite noisy due to passing traffic. Ear plugs required (luckily for us and the birthday boy had rooms at the back overlooking the residential buildings and hotel courtyard and they were able to move my sister to another room at the back after spending one noisy night at the front!)
- Small lift, only for 2 people with luggage
- Rooms do not have air con. and it was very hot whilst we were there so it's necessary to open all windows wide. (only disadvantage with our room, 404, was that at the time the buildings at the back were being rennovated so the builders on scaffolding drilling at 7am were not welcome!)
- Bathroom toiletries bit basic, no shower gel or body lotion
- Fridge in room was switched on but not cold (i'm sure the hotel would have sorted it out though had we been bothered)
- No free internet access, 3kr a minute
- Not for you if you ant to go out on a serious pub crawl and stagger back. You need to be right in the city centre for that as this hotel is in a residential area. But the lack of stag & hen do's is much more appreciated!

But all in all, we were very impressed and we had a fantastic as Copenhagen is such a beautiful city. We have stayed in many hotels, usually 4star and above. This is a 3star but comes very close to the next grade up. Definitely recommended. We are due to go back again in Feb/March next year to watch my sister sing at the new Opers House and we will think about stopping here again. Enjoy!

Just a great little boutique hotel at a great price by Copenhagen's standards. My girlfriend and I stayed there for three nights and thought it was lovely. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast (included in the price) was excellent.

I noticed another review mentioning that the hotel is a little too far from the city centre to walk however we found it to be no problem. We arrived by train at the Central Station (Kopenhavn H) and travelled by foot with suitcases to the hotel in about 20 minutes.

My one small quibble is that the rooms could do with ceiling-fans or air conditioning as it was very hot in Copenhagen when we were there.

I would definitely stay at the Avenue again.

As our tour group was going out on a Holland America cruise they wanted to arrive a day early. We researched the city and after exploring several properties settled on the Avenue. The staff, especially Camilla, were remarkable. . . efficient, helpful, and personable. The welcome is wonderful with ivory pillar candles on a silver tray at the desk to welcome you. The rooms were lovely and quiet. The only challenge is the tiny elevator, which required a bit of ingeninuity but was managed. The continental breakfast was wonderful--try the yogurt w/ toasted sunflower seeds and a drizzle of honey. The patio out back is a lovely place to share a drink from the resident's bar and browse a cook book from the library. We will look for reasons to return to this wonderful retreat!

What can I say, except that Avenue doesn't disappoint!

I am the designated hotel booker for four friends who get together each year to cruise and once again I found a winner. We come from three different areas of the world and we were so happy that Avenue's staff took care of our needs. The most important thing was that we arrived early in Copenhagen on both ends of our cruise and we were able to check in immediately, about 9:00 am.

Our rooms were simple but big and full of light. We could open the windows wide and get fresh air. And the beds were so divine that we could hardly get up the next day!

Yes, Avenue isn't in the center of the city, but just ask the wonderful English-speaking staff and they will tell you how to use buses and the Metro so that you can avoid the expense of Danish taxis.

As for the immediate neighborhood, just use your feet and you'll quickly find good restaurants, a 7-11 and a bakery with the best Danish pastery ever!

Looking at some of these reviews, I think you have to accept that if you are going to stay in a european city the hotels are going to be a little shabby-chic but at least they have character! I stayed here for one week in july with my boyfriend. it was 450GBP for six nights in the first week of july and the price included breakfast (i booked with gta hotels). I wasn't expecting much for that price and was pleasantly surprised. once you get past the worn carpet on the stairs and the tiny lift, the rooms are lovely., cool danish bathrooms, nice shower, fresh towels / loo roll every day, beds made etc no horror stories. VERY comfy bed! noisy road so if you can't sleep easily ask for a room overlooking the back/courtyard. the lobby has a nice bar and friendly staff and I enjoyed lounging on the very comfy sofas with a glass of wine after a long days sightseeing :)

it's very easy to get to the city centre so I don't know why everyone is complaining about the lack of restaurants in the area since copenhagen has a very advanced transport network and you can get just about anywhere in a short space of time. As you leave the hotel, turn right and the main road your are on leads straight into the city hall square/ radhuspladsen (sp?). you also pass a few lakes on the way which is quite nice. 25 minute stroll/ 7minute cycle/ 2 minute car journey. alternatively, the metro is on the next block as you turn right out of the hotel and you can go anywhere on it. i recommend giving it a go , it's so bright and airy and ultra-modern, totally different from the london underground! you can also bring your bike on the metro if you want to go home at night and your bike lights have been nicked/ it's raining.

My boyfriend liked the flatscreen wall mounted tv in our hotel room. unfortunately it broke one day but we let the staff know on our way out that morning and they had fixed it by the time we returned in the afternoon so if there is anything you are not happy about don't hesitate to let them know!

free parking and space for bikes. i think it is the 250s bus from the airport but just ask the bus driver - they all speak english. enjoy your stay!

  • Liked — convenience - breakfast included and able to walk home from town if out late
  • Disliked — our room had a shower rather than a bath

We had a lovely stay at the Avenue Hotel. I will list the positives first: large room, large bathroom, nice LCD tv mounted on the wall, free WIFI internet and breakfast.
Negatives are: 20 minute walk to center town, iffy-not-so-good commercial neighborhood, no AC.
We were fortunate during our stay last weekend as the hotel owner hosted a catered promotional party to which we were invited. It was quite fun and lavish.

After much deliberation of where to stay in Copenhagen we settled on Avenue Hotel, as it appeared to be charming but modern and offer a special atmosphere. There seemed to be mixed reviews on Trip Advisor and I now see why!

We had to check out after one night.
One person who stayed there wrote that he really wondered if it was the same hotel that garnered a positive review from another guest who stayed there.
Well i am now wondering too.......rooms and hotels outdoor deck area were absolutely nothing as they appeared on the webiste.
I was expecting a charming yet modern danish style with polished floorboards and spaciousness-having booked the family room. We were very cramped as a family of four, but for convenience may have stayed the second night we booked if we had not been kept awake all night by the constant busy traffic on the main road outside our bedroom window!
Breakfast could have been a lot better quality and not much variety.
The staff were understanding when we wanted to check out and cheerfully ordered us a taxi. Copenhagen is a lovely city to visit.
