First of all, let me say that in terms of fixtures and fittings, this accommodation is excellent. Thereafter, my review goes downhill I'm afraid.
Why? Reception staff not friendly and unhelpful. Location - well, it's in the middle of a building site and a fair walk into the city centre (Tivoli gardens end - even further to the little mermaid). No air conditioning so when we stayed there at the end of July 2014 because our apartment was on the corner with glass on three sides, it was stifling and sleeping was made somewhat worse by the very uncomfortable pillows. Finally, there is no safety deposit box so that left us with a dilemma about what to do with passports, travel documents and excess cash etc.
What can I say on the positive side? Once I have out of my system the rude taxi driver who brought us there - appalling little man!
Well, there is a good supermarket downstairs and the little bakery served some excellent pastries. Like most things in Copenhagen, it was pretty expensive though. The view from the balcony across the river was great (as long as you didn't look in the other direction at the building site).
My overall score of 3/5 is tainted by the rude staff and the rude taxi driver, the building site and the lack of air con. My wife wanted to score this 4/5 but I overruled her on the basis that it was me who bore the brunt of these rude folk!
