So that you have an idea how helpful the staff is, I'd like to tell you what happened to us. We booked a "Brilliant Deluxe Room" and were given the one on the first floor, right in the corner. The room was really nice, big, with sofa, bright (three windows) … but we felt too exposed to anyone looking at us from the street. We communicated this concern at reception. We got immediately the keys to two other rooms and were invited to have a look in case we wanted to move that very night (despite having already made use of the room we were staying at). As the rooms we saw were much smaller, we decided not to move. When we said that, we were invited to ask the next morning when more rooms were available. Next morning we had a look at two more rooms but, being better than the ones the day before, we still did not want to make any change. We decided it was enough, thanked the staff and said that we did not want to cause any more inconveniences. But they insisted that we had another look to other rooms once we came back in the evening after other guests checked out. Finally we could move to the second floor and stay there the following days.
As it has already been remarked in other critics, there are aspects concerning this hotel that could be considered positive and others not so charming. Briefly here is what we think about it.
Positive: the design, breakfast, being near the train station, at walking distance from the centre, nice room (at least the "Brilliant Deluxe" with a comfortable bed, good lights to read, plenty of sockets, fridge, safe, sofa, …), no "extra" charges (free internet or safe, …), etc.
As less positive this hotel has been criticised because of the not so good sound-proofed walls. I suppose it is a problem if you have noisy neighbours but we slept anyway with ear-plugs as usual and that was not a problem for us.
The other aspect is the presence of prostitutes around the area. It is true that there are a some of them and what we supposed to be their pimps and drug addicts/dealers as well. It really depends on how "sensitive" you are to this matter. My wife or I never felt unsecure going out of or back to the hotel. It is not that there are dozens of prostitutes along this street where so many hotels are (Best Western, Mayfair, Axel, Absalon, etc.) We ate twice at restaurants in the zone where the guests were tourists and what we supposed to be "average" Danish citizens. Difficult to judge if this topic is of relevance to you until you see it with your own eyes. For us it was not a question of feeling unsecure, but of being remembered about things you'd rather like that they did not exist.
All in all, we will go back to the Andersen Hotel if we visit Copenhagen again.
