There is a lovely 'independent' or 'indie' feel to what the Bertram's group are doing with their hotels. Thus, the Axel hotel is small enough to feel like the hotel's staff care about you. My Danish friends recommended this hotel because it's simply both comfortable and aesthetically pleasing without being OTT. I booked a superior single room for 4 nights and loved the lay-out of the room, with its adjoining balcony. The materials used in the hotel are simple, great quality and are a step in the right direction for hotels. Breakfast is expensive but is very, very good.
Yes, this hotel is situated in the red light district beside Central Station but it is really unthreatening. If you don't like the look of a few down-and-out's and hookers then your problem is general anxiety about you own life and lack of security. This area is safe and has a proper urban regeneration programme in place unlike quite a few cities I have visited. Nearby, there are many top-notch cafes and restaurants. Just ask at the hotel.
The hotel is well served for transport.
Would I come back? Yes and next time i want to try the spa.
