Zleep Astoria Copenhagen.
Realistically what do you expect for such rates in the capital city of probably the most expensive country in the world? (IMHO)
This is a budget hotel and boy oh boy was it budget. We stayed for one night prior to boarding a cruise ship and the room was smaller than the cabin we had onboard.
It's location, right next to the main railway station was a bonus as the transfer from the airport was really easy, quick and somewhat inexpensive.
There is free wireless Internet for all guests, however I was not aware of that until I had purchased access via the little card in the room, DOH!
Ok, the room, the carpet was dirty and threadbare but the bed linen was spotless.
The electrical supply was dubious to say the least, extension cables were zip tied to table legs and as for the stains on one of the supplied chairs it made my imagination go into overdrive (both pictures will be posted to support these points, but probably when I return home)
The bathroom was tiny with a surprising amount of mould in the corners around the bathtub, the remaining furniture In the room, wardrobe, table etc were certainly passed their best. Soap was supplied but there was no hair dryer.
The bed bases did resemble a concrete slab with a mattress on top, so were not the most comfortable available.
The main window that opened was very big to allow both air to get in and suitable for throwing yourself from when you realise what a mistake you had made in booking this hotel.
Breakfast was available for an added cost and was semi decent with nice bread and cold cuts, cheese, yoghurt, cereals etc.
Surprisingly for one of the world's largest producers of bacon there was none to be seen.
There are reports saying that "there were noises from the trains" seeing as this hotel is next door to the station what do you expect to hear? Wildebeest gently munching grass on the Serengeti?
The important question I feel is thus, would I go back? Absolutely not, never, no way.
Would I recommend it to anyone else? That depends on how much I dislike them.
Listen, you are either passing through as we were or staying in Copenhagen on holiday, either way spend few Krowns more and stay somewhere memorable for the right reasons.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hotel Astoria is located as a large train in extension to Copenhagen's Central Station. It is positioned very central in a living area with a short distance to the metropolitan areas in the Meetpacker Destrict and Copenhagen Center. There are approximately 100 meters to Tivoli and the City Hall Square is right around the corner. The airport is only a 12 minutes ride away. The hotel is a 3-star hotel built in 1934 in the functionalist style typical for the architectural era and is therefore popular among people interested in architecture. We have kept many of the original parts inside the hotel.
