Reviewed September 16, 2010

I stayed at this hotel for 5 nights and it is one the best "budget" hotels I have ever stayed at. The hotel is brand new, modern and comfortable. The rooms are bit small, but big enough for one person for a long stay. They are modern and clean, there is no cupboard or any kind of storage facilities in the room, but there is a place to put your suitcase on and you can also make use of the second chair. The bed awas extremely comfortable. The bathroom is very small, but very functional and shower size is as per international standards, you can easily pick the soap up from the floor. The air conditioning does work, but it takes about an hour to cool the room down, this is quite normal in big buildings, and since the cleaner turns it off when leaving the room. There is free wireless internet access in the rooms and the connection speed was fairly good, I could watch videos and upload plenty of pictures onto my social networking website. In the lobby there are also 6 Lenovo workstations with free internet access and one printer, which you can make use of to print out a few pages completely free of charge. The breakfast costs 60 DKK, about 8,00 Euros, I only had it on the last day, since when I am on holiday I do not like to wake up very early and breakfast is only until 10:00 in the morning, but the price is ok for Copenhagen standards. There hotel is on a brand new street (building works are almost complete) and there are almost no eating possibilities around the hotel. In the reception they sell sandwiches, croissants and coffee from an automated machine. In the morning I used to eat two croissants and a take a coffee at the cost of 50 DKK, so you may really consider paying the 60 DKK for the breakfast, if you are the early bird, then I strongly advise it. I did not try the self check-in machines, it did not work because I did not have the room card, make sure you pick one up by the door before attempting to use the machine. Unlike some other reviews say, the staff was really friendly and polite. I cannot say anything about the noise, because I have a bad ear. From the central station you can easily reach the hotel on foot, I took 15 minutes walking slowly. The area is safe and I did not have any problem.

I stayed for 3 nights. Having booked a standard room (presumably on the lower/middle floor) I was upgraded to essentially the same standard room but on a higher floor (floor 7 out of 12). Unfortunately the bedside lamps weren't working so I mentioned this to reception who were friendly enough and tried to get the lamps fixed the following day but having been unable to fix them we were upgraded to a room on the 11th floor with even better rooms! Rooms were small but for a short break more than adequate. Air conditioning worked a treat and the bathroom, although small, had underfloor heating! Free wifi was a bonus, as were the 6 computers by reception with free internet access. Luggage compartments (if you've checked out or too early to check in ) were 20DKK that was non-refundable. Didn't opt for the breakfast at 60DKK (around £7) as there were plenty of pastry shops and 7elevens dotted around the city. The hotel was about 10 minutes away from Central Station and within easy walking distance from all the sights (within 30 minutes walk).

My husband and I stayed at Wakeup Copenhagen for 2 nights at the end of August 2010. The hotel is about a 10-minute walk from the central train station and the Tivoli Gardens. There are very few restaurants nearby but given the reasonable price, the hotel was still a good choice. We arrived in the morning on the red-eye. Our room was not ready but we were able to store our luggage in their luggage room (20 kr for a large locker) and freshen up in the restrooms in the basement. There is also a lounge area if you wish to wait for your room. Check-in is at 3:00pm. We ended up upgrading to a Heaven room because it was the only thing available. It cost an additional 100 kr per night. Initially, we were given a room facing the train station. We asked to be moved to the quiet side and we were promptly given another room. We stayed in room 910. It was small, but based on previous reviews, this was expected. The room was very clean and comfortable, despite the small size. The hotel also offers complimentary WIFI.

We would recommend this hotel to other budget travelers. The accomodations are nice and the staff is always available to help. We will stay here again the next time we visit Copenhagen.

PROS
- Location of the hotel is quite good. 10mins walking to the Central Train Station and Tivoli Gardens. 15-20mins walking to the main shopping street and most of the tourist attractions.
- The building is a new one. And the rooms are furnished in a minimalistic, modern way (more like IKEA style). Everything is new and clean (not used thousands of times).
- Hotel has a nice view, on one side it looks over the canal, and on the other side to the Central Train Station. It is not surrounded by other buildings, so most of the times it is very bright (if there is any sun in Copenhagen)
- Hotel has a free wireless internet access
- You have to pay 60DKK for the breakfast (which can be considered as cheap compared to what you can get out of the hotel). The breakfast buffet has some varieties that everyone can find something for his/her taste.

CONS
- There is no telephone in the room! You have to go to the reception to ask even the simplest question! And I don't know what can happen if there's an emergency.
- There is no room service. You cannot even order a cup of coffee!
- They change the bed sheets EVERY FOURTH DAY! So you have to stay for at least five days to get your second sheet! If your sheet gets dirty, it is completely your problem!
- The rooms have a modern, huge size LCD TV but there is no water boiler or refrigerator (and even a phone as I said). Even if you ask to the reception, you will only get plastic glasses, not a glass one. Instead of the LCD TV, I would prefer to have these basic things!
- You cannot leave your luggage at the hotel for free! You have to pay 20DKK for the lockers and there are only 15-20 lockers for big luggages. When I was there, they were all occupied.
- For the bikes, they ask for 150DKK per day. But from the Central Train Station you can get if for 85DKK per day.
- There is an ongoing construction right next to the hotel (as of Sep 2010) and it is quite noisy in the mornings.

Wake Up Copenhagen stuns for his cheap prices in comparison with others hotel of the same category. It is well designed by Kim Utzon till in details. Maybe it will be more appreciated by youngest people for its contemporary room with a frosted glass bathroom.
Lobby area is spacious , well furnished. Very good service at reception 24h/24 , six internet point with printer completely free, free wi-fi in all structure. Rooms clean. Breakfast with wide choice.
Only a pity: there is not a bar avalaible although the structure could be offered, there are only some food machines with snacks and beverages.

The wakeup was ideal for us as a base for a 3 night stay in Copenhagen.

The service from the staff was good when we checked in, and with helping us to hire bikes.

We had an 8th floor room with a stunning view over the city. The room was very small, but just enough room for the two of us. A decent bathroom which was clean, and a comfortable bed. Having free wi-fi was good as well.

The breakfast was basic, but with enough variety of breads, cereals etc to be fine for 3 days.

Location wise, it is close to the train station, about a 10 minute walk. It is around 20 mins to walk to the centre, so it does mean quite a bit of walking. The area seemed fine, but a bit quiet and with there being quite a bit of building work and not being that light, my girlfriend would not have liked to have been on her own walking to the hotel at night. However, we did not see any problems.

Overall, if you are going to be out alot of the time and don't mind walking or will hire bikes to travel around, then this is a good budget option for Copenhagen.

We stayed two nights after an exhausting 36 hours of travel from Australia.

In many ways it reminded me of a cross between a hostel and a hotel, which for the price suited our travel plans.

Previous discussions re: aircon, I didn't think ours worked on cooling but that has always been our experience where-ever we have traveled in the northern hemisphere so wasn't phased by it.

We booked a family room which was two rooms with an interconnecting door. We were two couples travelling so it made the room cheaper with no loss of amenity. It was booked directly with the hotels website.

The breakfast was adequate, it was close to the station, still in the middle of a building site but not inconvenient.

Walking away from town there is a shopping centre/cinema complex with some meal options at night.

Definitely worth checking for prices and making a value judgment, A lot of other people have as I do not remember ever seeing a hotel as busy at reception. There were always lots of people coming and going.
