Wow, after reading some of the reviews on here, I was hesitant to stay at the Copenhagen Island -- but considering the 82 euro a night price I found on hotels.com and the fact that their parking only cost about 19 euros a day, I chose it anyhow.
So I was very surprised when we found the place to be so lovely! We got a free upgrade at check-in, and ended up in a comfy room with a huge bathroom and a nice view of the river/canal. Honestly, for anyone who has been traveling in Europe for a while, I would say that this hotel far exceeds what is to be expected of most European hotels and reminds me much more of a nice place I would find in the US.
The best parts of this hotel:
1. Modern, clean room
2. Wood floor instead of carpeting (cleaner)
3. Refrigerator for our food
4. Really comfortable bed
5. Huge bathroom with a really nice shower
6. Fitness Center!
It is true that the hotel is a bit far from the center of town - but by "far" it's really about a 20-minute walk, and you can walk along the canal, which is lovely. Also, the hotel rents out bikes, which is the best way to see Copenhagen anyway. Or, you can rent bikes in the city. It's a safe area, surrounded by many businesses and runners/bikers, so it's just fine to walk back from town after a large dinner.
I can see where, if someone is a bit older or has a physical limitation, they might prefer to stay closer to many of the tourist sights. But for anyone else who is planning on walking or biking around a lot, anyway, the location should not be a problem.
Personally, I would gladly take the location if it means I can get such a nice hotel at such a low cost.
