What's good is the location which is central and a 10 mins walk to Tivoli Garden, the train station & the stops for the hop on hop off buses. The tourist information office was most helpful & informative. The help yourself tea & snacks were nice too!
What's not so good is the steps up to the entrance and more steps up to the reception desk. Not great for checking in with heavy bags and there were no porter assistance too. We were grateful to fellow hotel guests helping us with our luggages. Fortunately they had a lift to the upper floors.
Then to our dismay, we had 3 steps down to our room after opening our room door. The room was most comfortable and quiet as it faces the inner courtyard.
The bathroom had a traditional tub and it was impossible to keep the floor dry after a shower. The towels were not as rough as read in other reviews. The toiletries were excellent and it's organic! Very nice!
All in all it was very homely and nice staying in Axel. Just tell them in advance not to give you the room with steps. And be prepared to lift your luggages in some parts of the hotel before snuggling up to your comfortable soft bed.
Copenhagen is a lovely city to visit with many attractions with transport ease to get to. Even taking the train out is easy. Get a day pass to cover your return and bus connections to the castle & sights.
