We stayed one night at Axel Hotel Guldsmeden from Saturday to Sunday in one of their bigger rooms with a bathtub in it. I guess that the hotel was much nicer when it was newly built. The place seems to be run without love and is a bit run down.

Axel gets a plus for that the room was clean, the bed was really comfortable and it is close to the central station. But do not use the bathroom near the reception, it is not the cleanest one I have seen! On the floors they keep their cleaning stuff under a blanket during the day which gives a messy impression. Overall Axel does not give a nice impression. And then when they start vaccumcleaning the rooms before 9.00 AM in the morning, although you can pretty much hear everything that is going on in the rooms between, the hotel looses a lot in service points..

We had expected more from Axel, and looking back we should have stayed at Scandic instead..

We spent a long weekend at the Axel Hotel in February 2013. Very nice place with stylish, modern rooms. Our superior double was perhaps smaller than we'd have expected but the space was used to good effect. The little balcony would also have been handy if it hadn't been so chilly outside. If you're of a delicate persuasion the sex shops and ladies of night hanging out on street corners may put you off - but overall a pleasant place to stay. Breakfast and spa are extra - and expensive - so if that's what you're after it may not be quite the bargain you expect.

Just checked out of room 403 this morning after 3 nights away with my partner.

The hotel is really well located just 10 minutes walk from the main shopping areas. Staff were very helpful and recommended a great restaurant, Mothers.

Our room was on the back and very quiet, nice and warm - even though it snowed everyday. The shower room, was slightly small but well equipped and no issues with hot water. We also had a nice sofa area in the room which was nice.

Would defiantly stay here again

When coming from airport, take train to central station Copenhagen H. After 15 inutes ride, you'll findout you've choosen the best possible location for a hotel. Only 5 minutes from central station (with only one turn toget into the street where hotel is situated), thisis perfect spot to visitall relevant CPH sightseeings. Hotel is nice, strong organic focus which is ice but forme it wasnt that much relevant. Room was perfect, clean and verypleasent to stay. Bathroom clean and perfectly designed and equiped. Breakfast I didnt have since i like eating out, but price o 160 krown is really too much, o matter how organic it is. Bside that, definitellyplace to stay and revisit.

Stayed here one night in junior suite. For the price the rooms were showing signs of well use. Furnishing/ fittings a bit tired and could be refreshed. The room was however comfortable and warm and i liked all the organic products and mini bar. We had planned to use the spa area but thus is very small and not worth the money. Service was a bit hit or miss, some of the staff friendly and helpful, others not so much. Breakfast room was very cosy and warm and much nicer than your typical hotel breakfast area. The organic breakfast was very nice apart from cold scrambled eggs. Great location

Very welcoming and friendly reception staff, extremely convenient location (just a 5 minute walk from Central Station), comfortable room (although quite small), powerful shower, lovely organic toiletries, and a good breakfast. Breakfast is pricey and not a huge selection, but everything on offer was delicious. Extremely good organic bread and jams and coffee in a cosy breakfast room. Would definitely stay here again.
