fantastic location, staff were good, rooms are adequate although our bathroom could have been updated . breakfast is a waste of money, typical continental stuff ( who wants cold meat and a hard boiled egg at that time of day) and rather expensive

I had a single room and upgraded it due to it being the size of a single bed! Not a very comfortable bed and was a pretty average hotel. I think all the beds in denmark have very bouncy matteresess.

It was cheap and cheerful, idelly located to the train station, for taxis, walking to tivoli gardens and the walking streets.

Would i stay again? yes i would as its cheap and located ideally by the train station making going to the airport. and very very near kebabish!

Room Tip: avoid single rooms. Go for double room single occupacny.

Well nothing bad to say, but still nothing spectacular either. Customer service in the lobby was great though! Breakfast is quite minimal and the beds are not what you would expect, but Copenhagen is pretty expensive city so for 100€ a night I guess this was quite cheap room on excellent location, 50m from the Central railway station's main entry.

For the low price this hotel is really great and exceeded our expectations. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the hotel/the room was as clean as it could be, regarding that the hotel is quite old/not renovated.

I stayed one night at the Zleep Hotel Astoria because I needed to catch an early train next morning. I checked in late, and didn't use any of their facilities, other than the room, so not much to talk about.

The room was small, and basic, with a double bed, desk and a bathroom. The bed was comfortable, although very low.

The bathroom was okay, except for the shower which was combined with a small two-level bathtub. This two-level meant that you're standing at an odd angle and I almost pulled a muscle while showering.

Also, my room was facing the street, rather than the central station, so there was a little noise from traffic and the usual drunks. But nothing that took away my sleep.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the central station instead of the street if you are a light sleeper

I would advise avoiding this hotel at all costs. The rooms are small, basic and noisy - but that is fine as you tend to get what you pay for, and as the price is reasonable you can't expect five-star luxury - but not even basic attention is paid to the security and safety of guests who stay here - and that is why I would recommend avoiding this hotel.

Last night while we were asleep someone broke into our room and stole a phone, cameras, money, and watch. Turns out we were just one of four or five rooms (that we know about - there may be more) that were broken into in the middle of the night while guests slept. Indeed one lady allegedly had the misfortune of waking up in bed while the robbery was taking place, and was confronted in the room by the intruder.

The possible reason being is that the front door of the hotel is left open at all hours (I myself came in shortly before 3am and it was wide open then) and there is no one on duty permanently at reception. The hotel is not in the most salubrious of neighbourhoods - street prostitutes ply for trade on neighboring streets - and so it might be reasonable to expect security to be even more imprtant here...

The bedrooms have a strange and antiquated locking system whereby the doors do not lock automatically when they are closed, and there is no deadbolt or chain to lock the doors with from inside the room. The only way to lock the door is with the key in the lock from the inside. If you fail to do this, anyone can wander off the street and into the room without a key. Indeed to make the situation worse, it can be detected from outside the room whether the door has been locked or not, as the bolt has a dial which changes from green to red to indicate when the door has been locked (along the lines of a toilet cubicle - I jest not...). Obviously we should have paid more attention to our own safety and security, but sadly when you are on holiday you tend to pay less attention to these things than you should.

Having examined the door more closely, there is a very tiny sign (maybe 2cm x 4cm) above the lock on the inside reminding you to look the door - fair enough - but being tired we just pretty much got straight into bed. I can only imagine that theft is a frequent occurrence at the hotel, as when we saw one of the staff members in the corridor when we realised we had been robbed she just shrugged it off as if it is nothing new. No warning is given when you check in though, to warn people of the old fashioned style doors that require locking manually.

At least the police station is metres away in the Central Station, so there is one redeeming feature (!!) and the Police were incredibly helpful, friendly and English-speaking. Fortunately our passports were not stolen - apparently other guests have had theirs taken - but obviously being broken into while you are - given the tiny rooms - only centimetres away from the intruder as they rifle through your belongings is pretty disconcerting. Obviously the beds aren't that uncomfortable as we must have been sound asleep...

The receptionist was very helpful but the hotel management has done nothing to address the issue as while there is apparently a duty manager, and she has apparently been contacted, she will not come to the hotel to speak to guests until Monday as it is a weekend... Bit late then... What kind of hotel has such little regard for its guests' wellbeing?

Do not stay here at any cost. There are plenty other reasonable hotels in Copenhagen if you shop around.
