Reviewed 13 March 2014 via mobile

We stayed at this hotel for 4 days. The location is fantastic, very close to everything. Staff pleasant n willing to help. The room sucks. Small with a bad smell. The floor was uneven, there is no sound, you hear everything. The cold bath because there is no heating n towels smelled bad. Throw them on the floor to change them but take n put them in their place. The taps tragic not closed to anything and got lukewarm water should be quite educational. Breakfast is fantastic! Definitely not my way again!

It was probably a nice hotel 40 years ago ; now the glory has faded considerable. Electricity wiring on the wall instead of in the wall, bathroom rather old fashioned, windows do not close tight giving street noise in your room.

Breakfast is OK.

In my opinion not the right value for money. I would rather rate this hotel 3 stars (the hotel rating in Copenhagen is rather disputable).

The location of this hotel is fairly central to everything in Copenhagen, 10 minutes walk from the Metro station, this makes it an easy travel from the airport. Breakfast buffet is good if you can get it for just £4 on expedia, it is not worth the £15 the hotel will charge for direct booking.,

Hotel lobby and recepetion are quite nice and so are the rooms, but they are quite small although the bathroom is big enough. We were first given a room that had a large room beam sticking out of the wall, this made the room very small, but we did get moved after complaining.

apart from breakfast we didn't eat in the hotel, the restaurant wasn't very inviting, very plain and very few guest whilst we were there.

We did have a major issue witth a large group of teenagers shouting and singing at 3 am, we had to call reception, we were very suprised that reception allowed the group to come into the hotel clearly very drunk and noisy and they must have heard the noise from anywhere in the hotel, but did nothing to stop them until we and others complained.

we booked a double room, but got two singles pushed together, we were told there were no double beds even though this was confirmed on our booking,

In summary there are bettetr hotels in this price range and unless offered a really good deal you should look at alternatives.

Dear traveller,

We thank you for your review of Phoenix Copenhagen. We are sorry to hear that you had a mixed experience staying at Phoenix Copenhagen. We are glad to hear that our service minded staff moved you into a room you liked better and our staff reacted on complains from noisy guests when notified. It is correct that it is always less expensive to book a room including breakfast instead of buying breakfast during stay for DKK 170,- p.p. per day. Double rooms are either with 2 single beds or 1 king. When you add preferred bed type on your bookings this is always on a request base that we will do our utmost to accommodate. Your first room given had 1 king bed and we are sorry if we did not have another king bedded room available. Even though you think better hotels are available in Copenhagen, we hope to have the opportunity to welcome you at Phoenix Copenhagen on another visit in the future.

Kind regards

This hotel is in a great location for all the sights of Copenhagen.We had a superior double room with the romance package (sparkling wine and chocolate strawberries on arrival) with breakfast included. The hotel has lovely facilities and the staff are attentive and friendly. The room itself was a good size with modern facilities but some of the fixtures were looking dated (albeit of a very high standard when first put in - so you don't really mind). The breakfast was a buffet with a good selection of food from pasties, fresh fruit, yogurt and cereals to hot food such as scrambled eggs, sausages and bacon. Overall we had a great stay.

The Phoenix is a well appointed four star hotel in the centre of Copenhagen. Large rooms, very helpful staff, good breakfast and a bar and restaurant on site if needed. It is located on Bredgade halfway between the picturesque Ny Haven and the Amalienborg Palace, and only a short walk from Kongens Nytorv metro station which is a 14 minutes ride from the airport. Also handy for the pedestrian shopping streets
Visitors to the city should be prepared for costs to be significantly higher than those found in Germany, France, Spain etc but it probably isn't too much of an issue for a short city break

Room Tip: Rooms at the back provide a very quiet environment. Rooms facing Bredgade might be a little noisy du...

The hotel is as central as you could wish for - the Royal Palace is right opposite the hotel and the pedestrian streets and shopping district close by. Also the Nyhavn area is within 5 minutes walk.
On the downside is the hotel rooms interiors. I got a single room on the 3rd floor (room 3323), and this was - shall we say - small..... The electrical sockets were limited and some of the ones that were there, were half pulled out of the wall.
The shower had a vent opening that was halfway out of the wall, and the warm water in the shower took over 10 minutes to get as the hotel have chosen to put in one of these EXTREMELY annoying shower heads with a so-called water saving devices (limiting water flow so a shower takes for ages as you can not get wet)
Do not get a room rate without breakfast as the hotel thinks it is reasonable to charge DKK 179,00 (EUR 25,00) for this as an extra charge. The breakfast is nice with a good breadselection, but nothing special. In addition, f.ex. the bacon was burnt beyond recognition, almost cremated. Impossible to eat.
I would not really recommend the Phoenix Copenhagen as I think there are other and better alternatives around, also centrally located.

Room Tip: Single rooms on the 3rd floor extremely small. Parking is made in the street around the corner of th...

Dear Traveller,

Thank you for taking you time to write a review of your stay this month. We are glad to hear that you liked our down town location but we are sorry to hear that your stay was not perfect. All rooms at Phoenix Copenhagen have a minimum of 2 electrical outlets per room. We are sorry if this was not enough outlets for you needs. We are sorry to hear that you had issues with the shower in the bathroom. We have notified our maintenance staff to make sure this will be in order for other guests in the future. Our large breakfast buffet for the price of Dkk 170,- has a big selection of bread, fruits, scramble eggs, sausages and much more. It's true that it's less expensive to reserve the room including breakfast instead of reserving a room without breakfast and then buying the breakfast buffet during the stay. We are sorry to hear that you didn't like the bacon from the breakfast buffet. We have forwarded your experience at breakfast to our head chef. We hope you will reconsider staying elsewhere in the future so you can visit Phoenix Copenhagen and experience Phoenix Copenhagen as it should be.
Kind regards
