Visited Copenhagen many times and stayed in this hotel for 5 nights. It is perfectly positioned if you want to arrive/depart by train, if you want to be in a short distance to swimming pool, if you want to be in a walking distance to the center. But you have to listen trains all the nights, survived in simple rooms... More

Hotel is very near to the central station. Very clean and comfortable hotel. Great breakfast. Very friendly staff. Easy walking distance to centre and just round the corner from Tivoli gardens. Don't let the fact that it is part of a leisure complex put u off as the rooms are far enough from the sports facilities so you wouldn't even... More

Great for you and your kids! Had a 2 and 4 year old. There are two heated pools, one for infants and one for toddlers. Both worked well for mine (2 & 4).

There was also a climing wall above the diving pool but it was broken, the diving pool has a trampoline to jump off and various height diving platforms... More

We absolutely love the swimmingpool at DGI-byen. My kid is in paradise. Jumping around in the different pools greatly separated so that all age groups can have fun. Warm pools for little ones, jacuzzi, and lots of space. Having so much fun and paying and premium fee for going to the pool is absolutely okay, the major problem is that... More

I visited the pool with my 14 year old son. There are instructions in English but its worth noting in advance that etiquette here is very different from UK pools. It is pretty much mandatory to have a full shower and shampoo before swimming this means getting naked in the communal (single sex) shower area before putting your costume on.... More

Part of a larger sports complex, it has several pools including a circular one, so no boring laps and no crashing into other swimmers! Modern, very well organised and clean. Sauna too.

I chose this hotel as it was easy to find if arriving by train. however in the end it meant hearing the train noise all day and night long. the room was ok for the two of us, rather spacious, as well as the bathroom (though all appliances were very old). unfortunately there must be some problem with the sewage...

Visited for the swimming facilities and to see the magnificent circular 100 mtr pool. The centre offers swimming, diving, yoga, badminton, gymnastics to mention only a few. The only negative point I have is as someone else has said, the spiral staircase down from the changing rooms to the pools can be slippery when wet. Other than that I can... More

Staying in Inner Vesterbro

Neighborhood Profile
Inner Vesterbro
This neighbourhood is home to Tivoli Gardens, a world famous amusement park and beautiful garden always worth a visit. Just west of Tivoli, you’ll find Copenhagen Central Station, from where you can reach just about every part of Denmark within 5 or 6 hours, or you can reach Copenhagen Airport in less than 15 minutes. Next to the Central Station, you’re in the middle of “old” Vesterbro, where several cultures and hundreds of languages are spoken in an area not more than one square mile. This neighbourhood is considered one of the most trendy places to live in and to visit in Copenhagen. For a real treat, visit Kødbyen ("meat town"), home to several restaurants, cafés and nightclubs, all within a short walk of each other.
