We stayed here for two nights in June 2014. The location is excellent- although, as some commenters have suggested, it's located in an up and coming 'hipster' area, it's no different from Shoreditch in London except perhaps more laid back.. It's about 5 minutes from the station and a few minutes walk from the meat packing district which is fantastic for trendy bars and food, including at least one of Copenhagen's Michelin starred restaurants. If you do stay here, book ahead for places like Fiske market and Pâté Pâté. We'd also recommend Mother's for sourdough pizza.
The hotel rooms themselves are lovely. We were promised a four poster which the king sized bed definitely wasn't and there was no bath, only a power rainforest style shower. The products were lovely (although the pumps didn't work which was irritating). There are no tea and coffee making facilities in the room so you have to grab something from the free tea and coffee in the restaurant (lots of flavours and choice except standard tea). The mini bar was full but there was enough space to add some of your own drinks if you wanted to store them. Wifi was fast in the evening but less reliable in the morning.
We didn't have breakfast as thought it was expensive at £20+ each per morning,, Instead we walked 3 minutes to the local supermarket and bakery and bought fresh juices, croissants, pastries and had a picnic style breakfast in bed (much better!). With the free tea, coffee and fruit from reception.
