Great big room with all the facilities needed to self cater plus restaurants, takeaway and shop nearby. Highly recommended as an alternative to a normal hotel and close to the waterside. The disadvantage is that it is just outside the city centre and about 15 minutes from the metro but you can hire bikes from the hotel and we did walk back from the city on one occasion (about 40 minutes). Cycling to and from the city is easy and quite flat. There is a large park near the hotel for cycle rides and running and a good gym in the hotel.
The area is still being developed and there is quite a lot of building going on around. It will look quite different in 5 years. We would stay there again and Copenhagen is a great city for breaks (start the break with Mike's Cycle Tours to get a feel for the place).
One word of caution, as we read in another review, check your room allocation on arrival. We had been allocated another type of room without a water view until we pointed out the error.

Room Tip: Rooms with a view over the water towards the city are best.

The STAY loft-style apartment is an unusual and sometimes unnerving design. John names it “Industrial Chic”. The 50 foot long, 20 foot wide room (as measured by John stepping the distance off) is a single, uninterrupted space, with only distance and furnishings delineating living, dining, and sleeping. The east-facing and west-facing ends are very large windows, each of which can be opened entirely to the world. During these long June days, the room is wonderfully lighted by the rising and setting sun, warming the black slate floor and cooling the air with sea breezes. The sky is light at 4:30 am, with sunset color at 11 pm.

The furnishings of the room are entirely black and white. The kitchen appliances are shiny black, the table and sofa are matte black, the bedclothes and tableware are stark white. The ceiling has peculiar blotches of red, meant to simulate glue marks where tiles might have decorated before conversion to living space. The concrete columns are raw unfinished gray and have patched spots, again for art's sake.

A small utility room houses that valuable item, a clothes washer (bring your own laundry detergent).

The bathroom is white tile, the shower space uncorrupted by curtains or glass panels to keep the water from sluicing the entire floor. A squeegee is provided to scrape down the floor once or twice during your shower and again afterward before your partner's shower.

The light fixtures hang from the tall ceiling down to shoulder height, thus inviting banging one's head against the decorative points of the black and white plastic item that houses the little light bulb. John is a great fixer of annoying items, and attempted to raise the light fixture above head-bump height, to no avail. He noted details that showed others had attempted that fix too. There are exactly four light fixtures with small, dim bulbs for this loft, which is no problem during this long, warm, sun-filled summer evening, but might just be an issue in the dark, cold season.

The lights are turned on and off from wall switches, which is no great surprise, but accustomed as we are to using light switches, the pattern of what switch operates what light was mysterious, some lights being controlled by several switches on different walls. John, always the practical fixer of problems, scientifically flipped each switch and mapped the results on paper, so we could separate the dark from the less-dark.

The kitchen sink and the bathroom sink and the shower have a single lever that controls on-and-off and hot-and-cold, depending on which way you twist the lever. Just for their remote amusement, the architects mapped on-and-off upside down. We sprayed our clothing quite a few times and were quite gingerly about not stepping into the shower until the matter was adjudicated.

The view from the east-facing window is of the other wing of our A-shaped apartment building, with its courtyard floored with wooden slatted panels. Small children love to run around here, especially for the amplified pounding of their little feet. If the shrieking was too bothersome, we closed the sound-insulating windows, which are excellent.

The view from the west-facing window is the canal, where people take recreation by boat, bicycle and strolling. Across the canal is a large graffiti painted with a remarkable obscenity.

We used bus 250S and the harbor bus to go into town. The STAY hotel rents bicycles, if you like. The motor bus goes three times an hour to the main train station, where all other buses stop, and the harbor bus goes twice an hour to various points on the canal. The Copenhagen Card or 24-hour transit card is valid on all buses and metro, including the harbor bus.

The wi-fi is included in the price, strong, reliable, and worthy. We used it especially to plan our sightseeing transit requirements, both close-in (for example, to the Denmark National Museum) and further afield, to Roskilde.

Shopping at the Irma store within the complex is a bit pricey but very convenient. The Netto store, which is cheaper, is an 8-minute stroll or one bus stop before the apartment. The Netto is closed on Sundays and holidays, the Irma is open. We were in residence for a Monday holiday, which ran the Irma nearly out of food. The produce bins and dairy shelves and ground meat cooler were entirely empty, causing consternation among the locals and tourists alike.

The reception people were friendly and helpful. The last day in Copenhagen I wanted to purchase train tickets to our next destination, the island of Ærø. The staff worked with me on their computer to select the appropriate train and bus combination and print the tickets, which was a great easing of the burden of departure. (I had already obtained the necessary ferry tickets from another source.)

Ok I got the top suite and more room and rooms than expected. I can't help to feel putty for those complaining about 180 degrees harbour view when they spot the development site next to the hotel. If you can, and you should, walk around the close up area has lots of restaurants, bars, coffee bar etc. in the past the island which is also home to airport had a nickname as "hell island" among the non residents in Copenhagen.
You are next to the metro which is easy to airport and 5 minutes to Christianshavn add two for Kongens Nytorv.
Yes this is not the hotel if you want all designer top line furniture, but for a very quiet close to everything in Copenhagen I go there again.

Room Tip: Well you can hope for the top suite, but I will ask for the southernmost room, despite you will be able to see the development site this is morning sun and yes ask for harbour view

I chose the STAY hotel upon reading many of reviews at this website. Much to my bewilderment, nothing could be farther from reality. Our room is quite large, with a hollow space, decorated in austere monochrome pattern, and sparsely furnished. It has a view of waterfront and a plot of abandoned industrial land scattered with construction materials. Paint is peeling off at parts of wall. There was a cob web at the corner ceiling. The bathroom though not small has oddly shaped sink. It is very long but no more than a foot wide. Thus water splashes everywhere when doing washing up. Perhaps it is not designed for us earthly creatures? Shower compartment has very slippery floor, and floods easily, as though no one bothered to clean the drainage.

There is no master switch for lighting fixtures, and wiring is very elaborate. During my first night there, I spent almost 10 minutes trying to extinguish lights before bed time.

I wondered if any house keeping standard exists? One day, all towels were replaced, another day only some towels were replaced. Dust rested comfortably on top of furniture.

Breakfast is minimal and expensive. The unit does include a large refrigerator, microwave oven, kitchen utensils, even dish washer and dryer. But for visitors spending only a few days at Copenhagen, such equipment is of very little value.

This hotel is located at the middle of nowhere and taxi is the only way to commute to city centre. By the way, there is no concierge anywhere, anytime. Forget about getting help with luggage etc.

I have traveled to dozens of cities in various continents. For the price one pays at this hotel, one can check into many 5 star hotels with private butler in Europe and Asia.

This hotel could not have been better. Wonderful apartment complete with washer and dryer, and dishwasher. The service is excellent, the apartments are very large with floor to ceiling windowed on each end of the apartments. The apartments go thru the building so you have two views. Our apartment was about 1000 sq ft. Everything was supplied even the dishwasher soap. We did not use the restaurant as we preferred to cook some small meals in and enjoy the apartment.
This hotel is close to everything, on the canal, walk everywhere over the small bridges.
We would DEFINITELY stay here again. Hate to leave.

Room Tip: Try 13601 or 02
