Reviewed 8 June 2014

We chose this hotel for its high Tripadvisor rating and reasonable (for Copenhagen) price. We were not disappointed, except for a few small shortcomings. The downsides of this modern, small hotel are: small rooms, no phone or alarm clock, and little storage space in the room. On the upside, this is a very well-run cared-for hotel with excellent, helpful staff. The entire hotel looks almost new, there is a complimentary wine service in the lobby from 5-6 pm, and the included breakfast buffet was quite satisfactory. We loved the short 200-yard walk to the Central Station and Tivoli, so the location is among this hotel’s strengths.

Room Tip: Ask for a larger room, if available. If possible, ask for one with an alarm clock, if you need a w...

Thank you for your helpful review.

To make up for the small rooms - Cool Room is the smallest - we want to have a cozy Lobby Lounge with music, design magazines, specialty coffee and a vast beer selection. The complimentary Wine Hour is popular among our guests.

I am sorry that the storage place was too small. As the rooms does not have a telephone we are happy to borrow our guests a mobile phone free of charge during the stay. This allows you to make domestic calls and contact the reception. Hopefully, the future will continue to offer easy to use alarm clocks on mobile phones .

We hope you will be back to stay with us within long.

Highly recommend. Convenient location for walking everywhere. The breakfast is very good. There is also an evening wine happy hour. The hotel is modern, clean and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. It was nice to stay in a boutique type hotel versus a mega chain.
It was a favorite hotel of our European adventure.

Thank you for sharing an excellent review.

A boutique hotel is a small privately owned hotel with focus on personal service, nice design and small touches. Andersen Boutique Hotel is named after my Grandmother Erna Andersen, I am 3.generation running our hotels. We take pride in our job and want to offer true hospitality.

Vesterbro is a Hip area and busy with the Hipster crowd. Restaurants, clubs and Designer shops are found in the neighborhod together with the Central Train Statiion, Tivoli Gardens and points of interests.

Please come back to stay with us again

Thank you for an excellent review.

The central location is perfect for visiting attractions, restaurants and cultural places. We rent bikes at the Front Desk and this is a fun way to explore Copenhagen.

We are pleased to hear your expectations were met and hope to welcome you back in the future

This review is coming in a little late, considering that I was in Copenhagen in late march, still the hotel left good enough an impression on me, that I just had to commend it for the fabulous service, wonderful rooms and awesome location.

Just about 10 minutes walk from the central station, (which would be the best way to come into the city from the airport, it takes you only 15 minutes or so from the airport), the hotel is easy to find, just make sure you get out of the central station on the correct exit and it's a short walk ahead.

When we arrived, it was a Saturday night, end of March, so the hotel was celebrating Earth hour from 8-9pm, and we had walked in, tired from a whole day of traveling from the Arctic wilderness of Abisko in Swedish Lapland to Stockholm, and then to Copenhagen - so the super bubbly personality of Sean, who greeted us so warmly and with a nice, chilled glass of champagne (thanks to the earth hour celebrations), was just the perk-me-up we needed.

Rooms are spotlessly clean and generally new-looking, and you can have a choice of the color theme - most importantly, the rooms are not the usual tiny European spaces you find, but rather a comfortable size. The hotel has a flexible checkout policy called Concept 24, which means that you can check out at the time that you had first checked in - in our case, great, because we had checked in around 8.45pm that night, and a few days later, had a late flight back home, so we enjoyed a very late checkout, allowing us to refresh and rest a little before our flight back.

Breakfast is decent enough - plenty of cold cuts, cheeses, hard boiled eggs, toast etc no warm food though, but enough to get you started in the morning. The hotel is walking distance to the shopping area Stroget and also all the main attractions. The only time we took a bus was to see the Little Mermaid, which a fantastic tip from the concierge, who had suggested we to take the bus from near the hotel, so you save a lot of walking time to Copenhagen's most famous attraction - which is great, because the mermaid is something you'd admire for about 5 mins, and then want to move on, so taking the bus saves time and effort.

Hotel is also near the harbor, Nyhavn, so you can walk over for lovely harbourside drinks/bites too. Speaking of food, the happening "meatpacking" district is where the hotel is at, so some cool dining places there too, just ask the concierge to point you in the right way.

Overall, a really good, and reasonable hotel right smack in the city with fantastic staff and rooms!

We are pleased to hear that you experienced our friendly and accommodating team. We are always happy to provide suggestions for restaurants as well as for local activities.

Copenhagen is wonderful. The politeness, the people, the citysights, the bicycle-centered traffic system, the coolness about money and consumption. All is great. And so is Andersen Hotel. The staff is very friendly and always ready to help. The room is a little small, but this is not an issue. The breakfast is complete (there's even rollmops), and for some extra bucks you can even have a barista's espresso.

Our package included bicycles and the city streets are an invitation to ride one. The hotel is one block from the train station, two from Tivoli Gardens, a couple from Stroget (the pedestrian street), 10 minutes to Nyhavn, 15 from Little Mermaid. It was spring, so we visit the whole city on a bike. The only problem was with rain. One morning we got soaked from head to toe. But people don't seem to care about it, and they keep riding their bikes even under heavy rain.

We were lucky to find out some of the places where the locals eat. Starting with Groften (it is inside Tivoly Gardens, so you have to pay the entrance). The food is comfy and very good. And the park is gorgeous at night. Also try any restaurant at the Copenhagen new meatpacking district (in Vesterbro). We had a fish'n chips at Kødbyens Fiskebar. They are usually for takeout, but you can have them on the "waiting room". And finally, have a happy hour at Torvehallerne Food Market (it is at Frederiksborggade 21).

Thank you for a very helpful review for future guests.

It is always more fun to ride a bike when it is not raining! We appreciate when our guests book directly on our own web side Andersen-Hotel and we offer a fun bike package. Next time we will offer a special designed bike rain coat with the bike.

Just by staying in Vesterbro you get to feel like a local. Always something happening and many cyclist on Istedgade. Tivoli Garden is popular for all age groups - some like the rides others the restaurants and a few just look at the beautiful flowerbeds. We sell tickets at the Front Desk, as we like our guests to skip the line. There is a concert every Friday in Tivoli.

We look forward to welcome you back to Andersen Boutique Hotel.

This is a family owned hotel that doesn't have some of the glitz or services often found in a larger, more commercial establishment. What it does offer is a comfortable setting (larger than average room size) with staff (although limited) that are very accommodating. The location (on one of the narrow side streets) is just a short walk to Central Station for those wishing to use the train services, and close to a number of local restaurants offering a variety of local food and entertainment. When my wife (both of us are "young senior citizens") saw the "Gentleman's Club" and the "adult toy store" within a block of the hotel, she thought that it may be in a undesirable location. Since Denmark and many of the Scandinavian countries are more liberal in their views about sex as compared to the US, we learned that this was not uncommon. Now that we have walked the streets around the hotel (both day and night), we did not find anything to be concerned about. Taxi's (if needed) are available, but like any major city, can be expensive. The hotel itself offered a very comfortable room in a more contemporary (Danish modern setting) with a good size bath. The staff on duty were very pleasant and helpful in giving us directions or tips about local places to visit or eat at. During our visit, the nights were cool and the heating system is a hot water radiator type system which needs to be explained upon check-in to your room otherwise, you will definitely need your blankets. The floors above the first floor do not have a telephone in the rooms which could make it awkward for some guests. The dining area offered a generous European cold breakfast, with items like hard boiled eggs, cheeses, fruit, herring (common in Scandinavia) and of course many delicious Danish pastries.
Over all, I would recommend this facility if you're looking for a comfortable setting with less of the "perks" often found in a bigger establishment.

Room Tip: Hotel is between other buildings, so room location is not rerally much of a concern. We always choo...

Thank you for a very well written review with some nice touches.

Our hotel is named after my Grandmother Erna Andersen and I am third generation running the hotel. We are a true small Boutique Hotel without all the extras. My staff aim towards offering the best service in Copenhagen and we like the central lively location, which you nicely explained.

The most convenient way to get around are for many people the by bicycle - especially on a sunny not so windy day. You may bring the bike on the S-train free of charge. The public transportation works well (although a bit pricey) but cheaper than a taxi.

The breakfast is complimentary and it is a cold buffet. Our daily Wine Hour is at 5.00 pm and a popular way to meet and mingle with other guests.

Andersen Hotel does not Air Condition. The windows will open and we have small fans in the rooms. If you need a telephone during the stay you are welcome to borrow a cell phone the Front Desk.

We hope to welcome you back in the near future

Spent a fantastic 8 nights at this lovely hotel early in May 2014 while attending the Eurovision Song Contest in wonderful, wonderful Copenhagen.
The hotel is centrally located, just a short 5 min walk (with luggage) to or from the main Copenhagen train station. By night, the area around the hotel may appear somewhat seedy. Don't let this put you off, we came and went at all hours of the day and night and at no time felt unsafe or intimidated.
For Europe, the rooms are a really good size. As this hotel is relatively new, everything is still clean and shiny and ultra modern. We stayed on level four, there is an elevator, but if you decide to take the stairs, there is a cute little surprise as you reach each level along the way.
Breakfast was included in our room and was great. There is a huge supply of continental options, including, cereal, cold meats and some yummy, yummy pastries. There are no hot options, but that is par for the course when travelling in Europe.
The hotel also offers free wine between 5-6pm each night. We took advantage of a glass before heading off for our next night out in Copenhagen.
My final comment relates to by far the best thing about this hotel, the fantastic people.
We were really well looked after at breakfast each morning by the lovely Stella and Julia (among others). It really was a pleasure coming down the stairs each morning to such welcoming staff. Ask Julia to try the breakfast liqueur, it is a really nice heart-starter to get you going for the day.
The reception staff are every bit as nice, in particular, Laura and Sean (who seems to get many rave reviews on this site!).
We also hired a bike for the day, at a very reasonable rate. Be sure to ask and reception, they will give you a key to access it and a map and you can be on your way.
Overall, we had such a fun time at Eurovision and in Copenhagen, The Andersen was a fantastic hotel at which to have based ourselves for such a great trip. Definitely recommended.

Room Tip: Higher level in case of any street noise (particularly on the weekend)

Thank you a wonderful review especially as you stayed a week.

Eurovison was a great time to be in Copenhagen and we appreciate your lovely feedback. It was fun to see all the happy people and we enjoyed hosting this. I think some financial people are happy that Denmark did not win again.

Our main assets are our hardworking, friendly and helpful staff. We try to give all our guests a fantastic time and we like for our guests to explore the Copenhagen we know and like. Good to hear that you felt at home and taken good care of.

You are always welcome to contact us prior to your stay for our suggestions and to make reservations. The top things to do are Louisiana Modern Art Museum, The Meatpacking Area and bike in the City.

Please come back to visit !
