Absalon is very convenient to the central station. Not sure if the neighborhood qualifies as "red light" district - there are some sketchy businesses nearby, as well as many other reputable-looking hotels, and we didn't feel unsafe or queasy about walking around at night. Staff is helpful, room was small but had everything we needed. And the breakfast buffet was... More

My wife and I stayed at Absalon, pre and post cruise. All hotel staff (inc cleaners) were friendly, helpful and welcoming. Reception were very friendly and helpful, on arrival, during our stay and upon departure. The lobby area was comfortable, but could be somewhat crowded at times. The breakfast was good, offering a wide selection of foods and drinks. The... More

The hotel was great. We had a family room for three adults and the room was big enough for a double bed and a double sofa bed plus wardrobe, desk and table. The breakfast was great but they were very prompt at tidying up at 10.00. It's close to central station and Copenhagen is a small city to walk round.... More

There are lots of mid-range hotels and restaurants (and few strip clubs) in this area, because it's close to train station, great location. Not just train station. It's 5 minutes walk to the famous Tivoli Garden, 10-15 minutes walk pass train station (and Tivoli) to the bustling old town and shopping district. Very nice walk too, interesting shops and views...

Stayed here last week really good location very short walk from central station and Tivoli gardens. Our room was very clean and compact but functional only fault we could find was there were no additional pillows and the one pillow provided was very flat. We asked for additional pillows which we were told there where none available which for a... More

First tine I stayed at this hotel and I must say I was impressed. They do not have a restaurant but serve excellent breakfasts in true Danish tradition; there is also a very well stocked (but slightly expensive) bar that sells excellent cocktails. My room was immaculate and very comfortable. Make sure you reserve a room at the back of... More

We (almost) loved this hotel so I’ll start with the positives. The location is a bit out of the tourist center which worked fine for us (tourist areas way too congested.) The hotel itself is an old building that has undergone a lovely renovation. Our room (549) was on the 5th floor, facing the street. The 5th floor is the... More

We spent two nights at the Absalon Hotel - one before and one after our cruise. The front desk staff were helpful, friendly and made our trip an easy one. The breakfast was excellent - loved the iced danish and wonderful breads. The first night we were in a very small room that left no room for opening suitcases except... More

The hotel is very convenient to Central Station. Some have expressed concerns with the neighborhood. No reason. You will find a number of good restaurants within easy walking distance, and it is a short walk to Tivoli Garden and the town square. We felt perfectly safe day and night. Breakfast is adequate, nothing special. Get there on time, the shut... 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.
