“Nice people, good breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

We only stayed for one night (passing through) but we have been to Copenhagen before and this hotel felt good. Nice touches, helpful people, good breakfast. We wanted somewhere away from the centre so we could drive up and park the car, and this worked (bus outside takes you to town). It was a hot night and we were at the front (the road is quite busy) but higher up and it was OK (just). Definitely one of our first choices for next time.

Room Tip: A room at the back might be better

My 3-night stay in Copenhagen could not have been nicer. The room was comfy; bed especially so and a great shower! Healthy, delicious assortment at breakfast. Nicolas and the staff were especially kind and welcoming. Always there to provide advice on local transport, sights and restaurants. Located about 20 minutes walk from Tivoli and right on major bus routes. Please note this is not the right hotel for those who like the Marriott. While there's an elevator, it stops between floors - could be difficult if carrying heavy luggage.

This is a wonderful hotel with personal service. We have been staying at this hotel for several years while visiting family in that part of Copenhagen. The staff remember you, welcome you and will try to help with whatever question or issue. It is a small hotel, so the luxuries of grander establishments, such as air conditioning, fitness facilities and room service are not part of the deal. However, if you want an attractive room, with excellent beds, clean and airy, personalised attention by owner, delicious and healthy breakfast, then this is a place for you. We had noisy neighbours while staying there, but unfortunately that happens anywhere where inconsiderate people are. It is one of our favourite hotels and we look forward to staying there again.

Room Tip: We love the rooms off the patio.

Summing up in a single review all your stays with us, in so few words is amazing.

Your review sums up what we are all about, and why yourself and your husband return time and time again.

Looking forward to hosting you again.

Being personally greeted at the front door by Nikolas, the owner, and then directed by him and his staff to great places to eat for dinner and brunch that were all 5-star knockouts on our 3-day visit.....the tastefully-done lobby and lounge area.....the garden patio out back....the clawed tub.....the soaps and shampoos.....the comfortable room.....the amazing neighborhood....and the hotel's accessibility to other parts of Copenhagen. ALL PLUSES!

Only downside: noise was a bit excessive at times. The housekeeping equipment on the wooden hallway floors early in the mornings woke us up as did the noise coming through the thin walls from slamming doors and loud footsteps in the halls and staircase.

One suggestion: lock access to the patio after midnight so party-happy guests with no sense of their own decibel levels don't wander outside and laugh it up while others may be sleeping.

But, all in all, we would return, in an instant. very classy and well-done, Mr. Hall!

Dear klubkleb1961

Thanks for the honest feedback of your stay with us.

All praise is much appreciated.

Thank you for pointing out some of areas where we can improve. These have been noted. I would however like to point out that access to our garden is limited to 23,30 PM. The neighboring residential courtyards are out of our hands, but we have a generally good relationship, and mutual understanding.

I will assume that the tips we provided entailed that your overall experience with Copenhagen was good.

Enjoy what remains of the summer

This boutique hotel is located about 20 minutes walk from Tivoli gardens. We stayed on there on July 2013, 2 nights before a cruise to Norway and 2 more nights when we came back. The first room we stayed in was small and with no air, the second was larger and had better ventilation . both room didn't have air condition, and it so happened that we visited Copenhagen in one of its hottest weeks of the year. Air condition could really chnage our experience.
The stuff of the hotel was very responsive and the service was very good. Rooms and public area are clean and nice. Breakfast is realy special and very good.

Dear Yacroz

Thank you for posting a review of your recent stay with us.

I am pleased that your trip(s) to Copenhagen and your cruise went well.

We have had a VERY hot summer this year, causing discomfort to both the cities residents and visitors. I will again re iterate that we do not have, and will not have Airconditioning - there are too few days a year to justify it's use, further more it goes against our environmental policies. Our Standard Plus and Superior rooms have fans in the room, while fans are available on request for the Standard rooms.

I hope that the heat wave which affected us during your visit did not limit your ability to explore our city.

The hotel is pleasant but the area where it is located is too far from the city's attractions. In addition the area itself is not pleasant. There is no parking and parking on the street (the only possibility) is very expensive and complicated!
From the very first moment, The man at the front desk gave me a most unpleasant feeling. And when I wrote my review to booking.com he started a very unpleasant (to say the least) correspondence with me ending with the words "and your narrow-mindedness...a reason you should not travel"

Dear KTch2013

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of your recent stay with us.

It surprises me that a well educated and well travelled person, chooses a property that is . located is too far from the city's attractions - if this was the main purpose of your visit. Further more, we as a hotel have no influence on the city of Copenhagen's decisions to making parking an expensive option for both residents and visitors.

Your description of our location seems to differed widely from that other reviewers express, and the general view of the city's residents.

Our correspondence with you, and this review, again lead us to draw the conclusion we expressed.

I hope that your trip to our city was otherwise pleasant.

Spent 5 nights at this outstanding boutique-hotel with my wife, combining the useful and pleasant at CBS Summer school. This magnificant place is served by a staff that re-defines the consept of friendly care and service in a way that will make staying anywhere else a truely dissapoining experience. the nights were in a bed with qualities only found in H? C. Andersens farytales, and were followed by a breakfast with a freshness and quality seldom seen. Coffee or a glas of wine in the hotels tiny, bamboo-covered backyard is noted as a pleasant bonus.

After a life of frequent mediocre and right out sad experiences in numerous hotels, our stay at Bertrams has reaffirmed me in my belief of the good in - if not mankind, so at least - good hotel management.
