Choosing a hotel in Copenhagen turned out to be a challenging task for me. I tried to get the combination of a reasonable price (generally local hotels are definitely overpriced relative to their quality), central location (between Tivoli and The Mermaid), and tranquil surroundings. BW City Hotel looked like the right choice, and turned out to be the one.
We stayed for three nights in a superior double room. The location is really good, with Nyhavn, Kongens Nytorv, and Christiansborg Palace within a few blocks from the hotel. We could easily walk to pretty much all central attractions of the city. The area was also very quite. Combined with the top-floor, courtyard-facing, end-of-the-corridor location of our room, the environment guaranteed us good sleep. As mentioned in other reviews, guests staying close to the elevator may be less happy.
The room was small (probably not more then 12 sq. m plus a small lobby), but functional. Besides a bed (quite comfortable) it had a coffee table with two Danish-design armchairs, a desk and a chair. The room was equipped with tea-making facilities (instant coffee as well), but lacked a refrigerator, an A/C or a safe (missed most). The bathroom was fine for a 3-star hotel. Everything was clean and looked fine. The sleeping room had a door, which helped to guard our sleep. Free WiFi worked well throughout the hotel.
The hotel has a very nice and functional lobby and a small bar area. Danish-design furniture is everywhere, and, to my mind, it made the hotel different from other generic institutions. The breakfast was very good. In the evening it is possible to get light snacks (e.g. chips) from the bar. The staff was friendly and efficient. Both times we asked to call a taxi, it worked smoothly.
