I spent a week in Copenhagen and spent it at the Savoy Hotel. It is literally a 7-10 minute walk from the main train station and easy to find. The lobby is very pretty and modern with ipads and a computer for the use of the guests. The check in was smooth and simple. There is also a bar where you can buy a soda, water or wine/beer. There was also complimentary tea and coffee in the lobby with a couch and two comfortable chairs. There is an outdoor seating area in the alley which was nice for breakfast and and for just anytime really. There was wifi in the hotel- I had an android phone which had some difficulty but the front desk was able to provide directions to use to login. It did drop at times but if you notified the front desk, they reset it.
My room was pretty small but tastefully designed. It was simple and compact and I was on the ground floor. There was also a hot pot with tea options. The bathroom was super tiny. I don't know how I would have managed in that space with two people. I was in a double room. The windows opened up to the courtyard. Unfortunately there was a heatwave going on, but luckily after two nights I asked at reception about a fan and I was given one. Definitely ask if you need one! The only issue was noise in the AM. Every morning except one at around 7:15 hammering and drilling started. I didn't figure out what was going on until my last morning when a fence appeared between our courtyard and the building next to us. That was a bit frustrating but it tended to cease before 8am which was weird but it was a relief. I don't know if that noise will continue but it was hard to sleep through. The only other noise I found was from the metal breakfast tables- if people were up early they'd drag their chairs over the stones. I wore earplugs so it wasn't terrible but I'm not sure if the sound maybe would've been lessened higher up?
Breakfast was great- in a city of such expensive food, it was a delight to have it included daily. There was a variety of fresh breads, cheeses, danishes, fruit etc. There was a coffee machine and loose tea and fruit juice. It was pleasant and clean and replenished frequently.
The location was also great. Sights like the Little Mermaid and Nyvahn were far walks but not outrageous- maybe a 1/2 hour or so? Tivoli and the Carlsberg art museum and National Museum were 10-15 minutes. I walked everywhere so it did take me a little longer but buses and trains are readily available and close by. The Copenhagen lakes were right behind the hotel and they were great to walk around and sit by to watch the sunset. There were many restaurants and bars all over. There is a also a small supermarket, Irma, one block down from the hotel by the theater which had cheap beer, soda and a small selection of food good for a picnic or snacks.
The front desk staff were great. They were so accommodating and friendly. They talked to me the solo traveler starved for conversation and gave great tips and recommendations. There was always someone on duty and every request was met with a smile. I definitely recommend this hotel for it's prime location, great service and cleanliness.
