From the Ibsens Hotel website, with its crisp lines, nice room photos, etc. I really expected my "medium" room at Ibsens to be similarly sharp, light and modern. Unfortunately once away from the lobby the hotel is a bit dingy and in need of an update... which, as there was building work on several floors, has perhaps already been realised and set in motion.
My "medium" room was among the smallest I've stayed in, with a strange, not really usable, mini-room at a lower level which contained a tiny desk but no power socket. I guess that adds to the technical floor area, but the practically usable area consisted of a roughly 1m strip around two sides of the bed. The decor felt a bit tired and dingy -- not at all what I'd expected from the website. On the plus side, the bed was very comfortable, the staff always friendly, and it being a work trip I only really used the room for sleeping and a bit of work. The wireless internet was fine, once connected, but I required several attempts to do that via the the rather flaky Swisscom system.
I didn't have breakfast in the hotel, since it was (by my standards, at least) very expensive: there are plenty of cafes nearby. After this I stayed at a cheaper hotel in Oslo (a more expensive city), which had a far nicer room and breakfast was included... I'll look for something else next time I'm in Copenhagen.
