This is a great hotel, and has a friendly/helpful staff. The breakfast is also good -- lots of great hot and cold choices (it was included with my room charge).
I also liked the hotel because it is in a more quiet, less hectic area of CPH.
Now for some tips if you have baggage (that is, if you don't want to deal with stairs). The hotel is a 5-minute easy walk from 1-stop from the central train station (the stop does have steep, long stairs, but there is a lift). The problem is as you near the hotel, if you have bags and don't want to deal with stairs is that to get to the hotel's lower area along the harbor is that there are a lot of stairs (and no lift). The round about way is to go through the mall/cinema (if it's open when you arrive/depart) and use the escalators or lifts there. It takes a bit more walking, but if you have a lot of bags...or "roller bags" ...this re-route makes it a LOT easier.
Also, at the entrance of the hotel, again if you have a lot of luggage, you will be greeted with 10 steep steps (and think, "oh my!"). Look to the right of the steps.. there is an elevator (it doesn't look like an elevator, or something you are authorized to use, but you can!).... it's a bit quirky and manual to use, but it's a great way to avoid the 10 steps into the hotel lobby with bags.
