Let me start with Copenhagen is a very expensive city plus the time, we came which was end of May was the start of the peak season. . It took me a long time searching for the right hotel within my budget and I just cant find it. I had to up my budget and lower my standards which is how I ended up here. The best rate was from aa.com, I got this for 210 USD per night which is much lower than going through booking.com or their official website where the rates are 250+.
My bf was the one who checked in they gave him room 102. Yikes, its like a fishbowl coz people from the outside can see you easily plus it was really noisy. I can live with the size of the room but the noise and its position, I cant live with. So I went down to the front desk and asked nicely. Thank God Casper came to the rescue. No, he is not the friendly ghost but the real nice and friendly front desk guy THANKS CASPER! . He actually upgraded us to room 306 which was a bigger room, part of the room is facing a wall and part of it you can see the water. Now thats more like it but i bet that room is going to be more expensive.
The room had everything you need but yes I agree with a lot of reviews, its a bit dated and tired. Im not so sure about the soundproofing coz I hear noises early in the morning, they do clean early. There are ships parked outside the hotel by the water and all day all night I heard this sound which I think are the motors but it started to become white noise. In all my reviews, noise is a big factor, if I stayed in room 102 i wouldnt be able to stand the noise but this room ok to good in terms of the noise factor. I think I used my earplugs only for one night. Keep in mind I am a very light sleeper so if your a normal sleeper this would be just fine. Bottomline, I got a good night sleep.
One of the reasons I chose this hotel is that it has AC which is rare in Copenhagen hotels. Guess what, im glad we chose one with AC coz it was unseasonably warm during our 4 day stay in CPH. I dont have much to complain about the room itself, it was comfortable, adequate, clean and aesthetically pleasing if you are not OCD about the little details (dings, dents, shaggy carpet, etc). They provide free wireless and it worked pretty good. They also have one computer in the lobby and interesting enough I never see anyone use it, when we need it, its available.
The service in this hotel is pretty good, I really have no complaints especially with CASPER. Most of the guys who work during the day are very helpful and real nice. No complaints! If you got questions they try their best to answer it.
One of my favorite aspects of this hotel is the breakfast, oh was it good. We are healthy eaters, we dont care for quantity of selection but quality. Well, this place had good quantity and quality. From the fresh orange juice that you squeeze yourself, muesli, no sugar yoghurt, wheat breads, hard boiled eggs, pancakes... I have to say we had a very filling breakfast and look forward to it every day. Beware, during the weekends, the breakfast place is PACKED PACKED PACKED! Come early on weekends or you will find yourself sitting by the bar to eat.
The best aspect about this hotel is its location. You cant really ask for anything more. Its upscale, quiet yet in the middle of everything... for me it is the PERFECT location. Why stay close to the central station or Vesterboro, STAY IN NYHAVN! I wouldn't stay anywhere else. This hotel is right beside the Admiral hotel. Copenhagen is a walking City, we did not use any form of transportation during our stay, all we did was walk walk walk.
Would I say this hotel is a good value for money, its hard coz we were upgraded. But beyond the room and considering all the good points that this hotel has to offer, at the right price I would definitely stay here again. This is a 3.5 STAR REVIEW!
Oh they also have a sauna/spa downstairs which we never got to use. I think its free
