Stayed here for a long weekend with friends to visit the city and the Christmas markets.
The hotel was a no frills, good value place - very similar to a Travelodge in England. Our room looked out onto the road, but was very quiet nevertheless. (May be different in summer if you have the windows open). The hotel is perfectly placed for travel and sightseeing, being just a couple of minutes walk from the back entrance to the main station.
The room was fine for a weekend, although if you were staying longer, the lack of shelves or drawers might be a problem. And unusually for cold countries, there were no hooks to hang your outdoor coats on - they would have been useful. The bathroom was clean, but there were no toiletries apart from a soap dispenser, and no bath mat, so the floor by the shower got a bit wet.
Breakfast was good - everything was tasty and fresh, and staff constantly replenished the buffet, even towards the end of service.
Copenhagen is expensive, although not that much more than things in England, and there are plenty of reasonable places to eat and drink. We bought a Copenhagen Card at the airport, but probably didn't save much over paying for things individually. (If you know what you want to visit, there is a calculator on the Card website, which helps you decide if it's worth buying one). It's only valid for one visit a day to Tivoli, so you can't use it to walk through the park on your route into town, and in December, most of the museums, galleries and castles are shut on Mondays, so factor that in as well. We started our stay with a walking tour (copenhagenfreewalkingtours.dk) which was excellent and helped us get our bearings as well as giving us lots of info about the city.
Much of Copenhagen is behind hoardings at the moment as they are building a Metro system, so we need another trip in a few years' time to see the city at its best. When we do return, I would happily stay at the Star again.
