We had a great time at this hotel. The service is excellent and the owner a really nice and friendly guy. Everything seems to be furnished with love. Very comfy "lounge room" with lots to read. The rooms are cozy and the beds very comfortable. The bathroom is nice but could definitely need a a bigger sink and better ventilation. If you rather like taking baths instead of showers, you shouldn't be bothered by not having a shower. There is a bus stop right in front of the door which makes it very convenient to get to Radhuspladsen and the city center. The breakfast was very good and offered a wide selection of tasty bread besides other things. Vesterbro is an up and coming neighborhood and is a great place to go out on the weekends. There are furthermore a few very good restaurants around.
The bad reviews for this hotel seem to be written mainly by North American visitors. This is Copenhagen and you should expect some cutbacks and lower your expectations regarding room size and bathroom functionality. Also you DO NOT need air con in Copenhagen as it rarely gets over 23 degrees in the summer. It is not common to have air conditioning in most hotels in Northern Europe and certainly not in an environmentally sustainable hotel like Bertrams. If you value pancakes for breakfast and a freezing cold room in the summer, stay somewhere else.
All together it was a great stay and I would definitely return!
