We stayed in the hotel for three nights and I was very impressed. After reading some dubious reviews on trip advisor I wasn't expecting much. But I was pleasantly surprised. I was delighted to find just how close it was to the station- practically attached!! Although this meant that the we could hear the trains the thick windows blocked out most of this noise and I certainly wasn't bothered by it during the night.
The location is perfect. Approx walking times- 30 seconds from train station, main tour bus depot and Trivoli, 5mins from city hall and the statue of Hans Christian Andersen, 10mins from Stroget and 15mins from Rosenborg castle and Nyhaven.
We didn't opt for the breakfast as there is a wonderful bakery across the road that has a Danish breakfast for 55,- The hotel breakfast was a buffet, but 79,-
The room was small and basic. But as we had come to see the city and not the inside of a hotel room this was fine for us. The electrics were... interesting!!! Certainly my socket was loose, but worked. The bedding was clean and comfortable and the bathroom small, but clean also.
The room was very very warm. As the windows open up wide (like a door, with hinges on just one side) it wasn't practical to sleep with it open. There was a fan in the wardrobe but this did little to cool the room with no fresh air coming in during the night.
The free wifi vouchers were handed out on arrival and more were offered daily as required. My friend asked for an extra pillow and staff were more than happy to help and even offered more! Staff were friendly and it was no trouble to keep our luggage there after we checked out on our last day.
I wouldn't recommend staying here for a romantic weekend break or if you have children- its a little too basic. But for anyone else I would say this is an ideal place to stay and exceptionally good value in one of the most expensive cities I have ever visited.

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.
