Pros: location, view (water side).
Cons: stairs at entrance of hotel; restaurant and front desk staff.
Great location for getting around and shopping. S-train station is just a 5-minute walk (Dybbolsbro station, 24 DKK ticket via machine) and the big Fisketorvet mall is right next door where you can pick up gifts, groceries and try a variety of buffet meals (from Thai to Italian) for 69 DKK and up. Request a room facing the water and enjoy an open-window view of the Inderhavn (patio style doors do open). Free wifi in room with fairly good speed.
Be prepared to haul your luggage up the stairs at the front door. No door staff to help you. Breakfast, which is included in the rate, is a bit of a circus. I ate after 9 one morning and found slim pickings since the food was not replenished after large tour groups foraged through. The second morning was better at 8:30 but had to hunt around for a spoon and napkins. Staff seemed to have difficulty keeping up. Not too impressed with the front desk staff at check-out. Had to wait 8-10 minutes even though there were 4 agents at the desk (but only 2 helping 4 people in line). Be warned, the hotel does charge a credit card fee (1.25%) maybe for certain cards.
