Stayed here with my wife for a long weekend. This was our first trip to Copenhagen and the Palace Hotel helped make it a great weekend.
Our room (429 - 4th floor) over-looked the inner courtyard and was very quiet - if you ignore the chimes from the bell on the City Hall! The room was really nice. The bed was really comfortable and bathroom nicely sized. A great place to rest our weary legs after touring the city.
The location was great for our travel, being close to the central station. It is also right on one end of what seemed to be the "shopping area" of Copenhagen. Everywhere we wanted to go was in pretty easy walk / bike range (more of that later).
We didn't use the restaurant other than for breakfast. Breakfast was pleasant enough; plenty of organic food (cereals, cold meats, cheese, etc.), plus a reasonable cooked breakfast and selection of pastries (Danish, of course!). It was more than enough to get us started in the morning!
The bartender in the bar was friendly enough. There was a reasonable selection of drinks. But, the bar was only really used for a night cap. There are plenty of alternatives all over the city for this particular service.....
The staff were friendly and, on the whole, helpful. They couldn't recommend a sensible Rent-a-Bike option (the hotel bikes were out or broken). You should research this before going. Or, head up over to the Rosenburg Castle area for that particular service. Also, they left our bags fairly vulnerable when we left them with them after checking out. For these two reasons, I have knocked a point off.
Talking of which, check-out was a very sleep-friendly 12.00 - most appreciated.
I would definitely try and book here again, if I were to return to Copenhagen.
