New - Wakeup Hotel?

Hi everyone,

We will be in Copenhagen at the end of September and have been looking for a decent, affordable hotel. We have found some really good rates on the new WakeUp Hotel that opens next month. Its touted as a Budget hotel from the Arp-Hansen Hotel group, but with no guests yet, there are no reviews to judge if it is a decent place. It seems to be in a good location and atleast everything will be brand new!

Does anyone have any insight or thoughts on this hotel? Please let us know as it will help us make our decision to chose it for our stay.

THANKS!!!!

Hi Mikey-And-Dani,

We are in the same position about the Wake-Up Hotel. We will be taking a short cruise from Copenhagen (Sept. 10-15) and are looking for a one-night stay pre-cruise on Sept. 9. I called the hotels's booking number to be sure that the hotel will be open before our arrival (don't want to arrive to a total construction site!!), and was told that the hotel opens on Sept. 1.

I booked online for DKK 500 for a standard double-room (DKK 100 less than booking by phone)for the night. Hope it's o.k.. I can report here after we return on Sept. 17th, but that's probably too late to be of help to you.

For 2 nights post-cruise we booked the Bethel Hotel, which seems to be a favorite on Tripadvisor. Their reservations dept. (person) are wonderful to deal with -- extremely nice and helpful. Only a large double room was still available for our nights and the cost is DKK 945 including full breakfast. (Almost a bargain for extremely expensive Copenhagen!)

Thanks for the info! Funny thing is we also emailed the Bethel hotel. It looked like a sweet place in a great location, but we will be staying for 5 days and are trying to keep it alittle cheaper. As of right now we are leaning towards getting a room at the wakeup, but figured first we would try and find someone local with insight on the hotel. Enjoy your trip! We will be flying to Iceland first and then to Copenhagen. CANT WAIT!!!

Well here's a small input from a local who obviously have not stayed at the hotel.

It's in a not very interesting part of Copenhagen.

If you check out the reviews for Island Hotel - you will get a general idea of the area.

There are no shops, cafes or restaurants around and it is a brisk 20-25 minute walk to the city center.

Hello and thanks for the reply.

We realized that Wakeup is quite far from much of everything, but since we are arriving on a flight late evening and will be boarding our ship the next morning, we decided it was worth saving at least DKK 400 to just use the hotel as a place to sleep for a few hours. We'll be doing the sightseeing at the end of the cruise and for that we've booked the Bethel Hotel. Is that a better choice?

I have booked this hotel online in the heaven room for one night in early Oct including breakfast. Price was $149.00 Australian dollars which I am very happy about considering prices of hotels in Copenhagen.

Hi

Im a local and i dont think the location of WakeUp is too bad. Its not more than 10-15 minutes walk to the Central Station (Hovedbanegården) and Tivoli.

Its not in the old charming part of the city and today its still a building site, but if the price is rigth u should not be worried!

Thanks for replying!

Hopefully it won't be a building site too much longer. They assured me that they will be open as of Sept. 1 -- and we are booked for Sept. 9th! Hope they have an alternate plan if they can't open on time -- they certainly took the money in advance!

Hello BjornCPH,

How is the WakeUp Hotel looking -- have they opened yet?? We are just one week before our stay there and it would be nice to know that we will have a bed when we arrive!

Thanks for your help.

Hi...

We are leaving next week for Copenhagen, and are booked in this hotel starting 14 September. The price attracted us for what is supposed to be a 4 or 5 star hotel??? Now we are worried that when we arrive, the hotel might not be open yet! Does anyone have any up to date information?

Thanks

According to the Arp-Hansen website, the hotel opened on September 1st.

But why not drop them a mail and ask them?
