    Good location. Great bed. Good breakfast.

    Very noisy at night. Room very warm.

    Walking distance from train station. Beautiful boutique hotel. Nice bar. Excellent breakfast buffet.

    None.

  • Group of friends

    Good tourist hotel with an excellent location. It's a typical 'behind the railway station' neighbourhood, a bit lively but noy unsafe. Breakfast was really good. The room was comfortable but nothing special. I was on a city trip with my mother (65 of age), and would certainly recommend this hotel.

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    We liked the breakfast because the food was good and it was well presented. The people at the desk were very friendly and helpful.

    We would have liked washclothes in the bath..

  • Family with children

    It's a shock -liked very litte and won't stay again

    Lack of internet access -one old pc that gets hogged and can never get on it. Incredibly noisy, allowing students to run up and down the corridors all night-laughing, talking, midnight we got knocks on our doors and people running off. you could not fail to hear the noise, and hotel staff would not address or turn up to fix. people have no regard for others. place is a joke and completely over priced.

  • Single

    It was very close to city centre.

    It was not very nice to walk on my own in the evening.

  • Family with children
    4.6

    Basic, budget hotel with reasonable facilities. Very good breakfast buffet. Suit those on a budget, school and family groups. Friendly and helpful front desk staff.

    Bed was very uncomfortable: small room, very bad hair dryer. Bad location.

  • Group of friends
    5.0

    The breakfast was quite decent, and the hotel was near the central railway station, although location otherwise wasn't that great. It was within a reasonable walking distance from all the main attractions in Copenhagen, but so is almost anything since it is a small city.

    The room was quite horrible compared to the price we paid. I had allergic reactions there, and there was not a single room in the hotel without a carpet that we could have changed into. The rooms really need to be repaired and did not reflect at all the pictures on their website.

  • Single
    5.4

    The room had a pleasant appearance. Breakfast was good.

    The bathroom was ridiculously small and the shower even worse. The toilet paper roll was places away from the toilet and beside the shower that has a plastic curtain so it got wet. The bed was uncomfortable. The room was very poorly designed.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    It was convenient to the train station and Tivoli gardens which was the reason for coming to Copenhagen. It was also convenient to a lot of the museums and restaurants that we were interested in.

    We are non-smokers and found that there was usually a smoking smell in the area of our room. We also wound up in an smoking room, but that did not seem to be really a problem. We also do not care for duvets as they are too hot and we always wind up taking them out of their covers and just using the cover, which then turns out to not be quite enough cover. Can't win on that one. Wish they would provide a blanket instead. This, of course, is not just this hotel's problem but also it now appears that this is the standard bed covering in most European hotels.

  • Family with children

    Minutes walk to the city centre and some worth visiting attractions.We were able to walk and see everything in Copenhagen.Nice atmosphere,clean rooms.Breakfast was really good,too!!!

  • Couple
    8.2

    Great location near main railway station and city center. Room was good and breakfast was excellent. Car park was extra about 20€. Total price was high but Denmark is expensive country, did not find any cheaper and better than this.

  • Older travelers
    5.8

    Absolutely the best thing was the location!!! The hotel is situated just a stone cast away from the central railway station and was easy to find. Also the staff was very friendly, spoke very fluent English and the breakfast was good and tasty. I can recommend the hotel for young couples or friends, who wish to explore the capital of Denmark by foot and wish to accomodate near the center.

    The room was very noisy, one needs earplugs to be able to sleep. There was a night club nearby and the noise was horrible! Do not recommend the hotel for families with kids. The room wasn't very clean, dusty overall carpet and the bedcover was dirty and spotty. Also the electric kettle was dirty because of chalk and we really didn't feel like tea or coffee. The breakfast was good and tasty, but we did miss fresh fruits and vegetables to be served as well. There were only canned fruits and dried cucumber slices. The price for 3 nights (360 euros, E.G. 120 euros/night) was too much looking for what you got for that price.

  • Couple
    10.0

    Wonderful staff who were very helpful about pretty much everything, decent budget restaurants nearby, close to the train station and quiet. The breakfast was great as well.

    Location is good but too noisy at night

    Too noisy at throughout the night especially we had to open the window (no aircon)
