I chose three stars from the options list, but this hotel probably deserves a 3.5 star rating.
Ibis hotels in Europe are similar to Courtyard by Marriotts in the U.S. Modern rooms that are comfortable with the necessary conveniences, but not a whole lot of character.
The Copenhagen Star is housed in an older building, but it's all modern once you step inside. The lobby is attractive and very busy, with nice sitting areas, a lounge and the breakfast room.
The rooms are of a decent size, very clean and very comfortable. They've got that generic taupe look, with the only unique quirk being the slanted walls on one side (watch your head!). The walk-in showers are equipped with handy hair/body shampoo dispensers and have good water pressure. Beds are a little on the hard side, but perfectly OK.
The breakfast buffet in the attractive breakfast area is very nice and worth the modest additional charge. Lots of pastries, danishes, fruit, cold cuts, open faced sandwiches, breads, cheeses, excellent coffee, teas, juices and so on.
The Star is a block from Kobenhavn H, the main train station, at the corner of Istegade and Colbjornsensgade. Istegade is the city's red light street (very tame when compared to just about any other major European city's red light area) but the Star is at the better end of it. (The sex shops start popping up two blocks further down). It's an easy walk to the train station, even with heavy luggage.
Central Copenhagen is very walkable and you can get to just about everything you'd want to see on foot from the Star - Tivoli, Stroget, Ny Carlsburg Glyptotek etc. All the S-Tog (suburban train) lines come into Kobenhavn H and are convenient to getting to sights like the Mermaid of Copenhagen. You can also take the S-Tog to connect with C'hagen's ultramodern driverless metro to get to Christianhavn.
