We stayed at the Hotel Hebron for two nights in late May 2014. We booked a spring/summer special offer nearly 5 months in advance and got a cracking rate of DKK 895 (just under £100) per night for a suite. I wouldn't normally book a tourist class hotel, but was so impressed with the description and pictures of the suite on the hotel website and the reviews on Tripadvisor that I thought we'd give it a go. First impressions were good with a friendly welcome at reception and we were able to check in early. Unfortunately the room we were allocated (123) whilst undeniably a suite (living room, bedroom and bathroom) it in no way looked like the suite in the pictures. In fact it was decorated and furnished in a very similar way to the room the reviewer 'connect2source' referred to in March 2014. It was dated and drab and there was no sign of the promised free minibar. I went back to reception and explained my unhappiness. She asked to see my reservation confirmation, saw it clearly stated "suite - one king bed" and suggested that the room types available when booking don't easily match the room types that actually exist. Bearing in mind the only suites mentioned on the hotel website are the recently refurbished ones that come with an inclusive minibar I can't understand how this situation occurs. If there is more than one type of suite available at the hotel this should be clearly described on the website. She kindly checked to see if one of the refurbished rooms was available and arranged the 'upgrade'. This room (323) was much better and looked just like the pictures. It was lovely and quiet with a view out the back of the hotel and we enjoyed the complimentary drinks.
Breakfast, as almost all reviewers have mentioned is excellent in a lovely, light and airy room with a wonderful selection of foods and friendly staff laying tables and replenishing items.
There are a few reasons I haven't given this hotel a higher score. Firstly the room standards are clearly variable. The difference between the two I saw was marked and had we have stayed in room 123 my score would have been even lower. The owners are clearly trying their best with the property, but as they say, it's a 100 year old building and these things take time. As such the corridors are tired with green carpet and bright green doors with aren't exactly contemporary. There's no air conditioning in the room but as we were at the back of the hotel we were able to sleep well with the windows open. Finally the main reason I haven't given a higher score is the immediate area the hotel is located in. Whilst it's true that the area generally has undergone something of a renaissance with new bars and restaurants moving in, the immediate vicinity of the Hotel Hebron is still very much stuck in the red light district. There's a still a strip club next door and a sex shop around the corner. At the bottom of the road prostitutes still walk the street. We're a mid-thirties gay couple from Brighton, so hardly prudish, but it just wasn't very pleasant walking back to the hotel at 11pm. Had we walked along the main road we would have probably felt less uncomfortable.
All in all whilst we had a nice stay at the Hotel Hebron I think we'd stay elsewhere if we were to return to Copenhagen.
