We spent three nights at this hotel in Copenhagen. Upon arrival, we discovered that our room was on the opposite side of the hotel from that of our kids. It was also quite small, though we don't expect large rooms in Europe. It was the distance that was an issue, especially since our middle child is autistic. We inquired about a closer room to our kids and were quickly upgraded to a room on the floor below theirs, which worked out fine. And both rooms were quite ample in size. The kids' room was in fact very large, which worked out very well for them.

The hotel has an interesting, non-traditional lay out, in that there are two wings, it seems, with a dining area on one side and a sitting/lobby area between. It's an old, nice building, in what I think is a good location. It was a relatively short walk from the train station.

One afternoon, my husband and I took advantage of the hotel's "wine hour" and had a lovely chat with the bartender. But I want to make special mention of one of the staff in the breakfast room, who took note of our autistic son and went out of her way to find him something suitable to eat and drink. Her kindness was very much appreciated and a notable contrast to the rather cold vibe we got at our next stay, in Stockholm.

I would happily recommend this hotel based on service, location and overall satisfaction.

Hotel Kong Arthur makes you feel alive yet relaxed with the cosy rooms, luxurious spa and helpful staff. The breakfast buffet is absolutely fantastic with a lot of healthy choices. The possibilities for sitting in sofa groups is much better than I have seen in other hotels.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the courtyard is quieter.

Our two stays at the Kong Arthur Hotel surrounded our Baltic Cruise in late July and early August of 2014. We had chosen the hotel on the recommendation of friends and found many reasons to be pleased with their advice. The setting is attractive, a cul-de-sac facing one of the five lakes spread across the middle of the city. It is a ten or fifteen minute walk from Rosenborg Castle, the heart of the old city or Tivoli, depending on which direction you choose. The interior is charming, and the staff are friendly and helpful. The glass enclosed breakfast room and patio are pleasant and the buffet style breakfast is excellent.
The rooms are somewhat Spartan, but attractive. The designation "small" for some of them is certainly honest, but they are serviceable. The hotel's concern for being "green" is carried to an extreme with only one face cloth and no hand towels provided for two guests. The combination of a shower floor level with the washroom floor, thus allowing water to flow across part of the floor, and the 240v hairdryer hanging above the puddle would have been daunting had we not brought our own.
The hotel claims a connection with the restaurant in the courtyard behind it, and if they refer to the Italian restaurant they might want to reconsider their relationship. My wife and I were not amused by the restaurant's refusal to serve us unless we ordered more than the pizza we had intended to share. We had ordered more on a previous visit, but were not very hungry this time.
We did not return to this establishment.
We found two major problems with this hotel. First, it is entered by a flight of stairs. Another flight down takes one to the elevators. For retirees with four heavy cases (necessitated by formal nights on the ship), these stairs created some hardship. Ramps would be helpful.
The second problem resulted from the timing of our trip, during a heat wave which struck the whole of the Baltic area--great on the ship, but deadly in a hotel with NO AIR CONDITIONING, in a city with abnormally high humidity. Our first room was on the fourth floor, directly under the roof, an area which the sun had turned into an oven. Needless to say, despite our fatigue after an all night flight, sleeping was very difficult.
To their credit, hearing our concerns on our return, the staff provided an upgrade to a larger room in a different location which was certainly more comfortable,though air conditioning still would have been appreciated.
In summation, the Kong Arthur has much to offer but needs to improve in some areas, especially if Baltic heat waves continue to occur in years to come.

I always stay at this hotel when I am in Copenhagen with my job. Nice and friendly service, good and spacy rooms, cozy hour with a free drink, free entrance to spa, very good restaurant in the backyard and finally a wonderfull breakfast.

Hotel Kong Arthur is an inexpensive hotel option in an expensive city. It is a ten minute walk from Norreport station, which is so easy to get to from the airport. The hotel has a spa attached which is pricey but very good. There are also several restaurants associated with the hotel which are very good - a great number of locals eat in the sushi and tapas restaurants.
The staff in the hotel were friendly and helpful (with my insistence on speaking in faltering Danish, even though everyone of course speaks perfect English!). Be sure to hang around the hotel between 5 and 6pm for cosy hour - a nice touch of good service. The bowl of apples by the front door for guests to take with them is another nice touch in the hotel.
The room was clean, decent sized and warm with enough room to move around. There were plenty of facilities in the room including an iron and fold out ironing board, wi-fi and a mini bar amongst others.
The only negative point I would offer is the breakfast option - it is expensive for what it is. However it is an expensive city to stay so I guess the price only reflects that: service at breakfast was of course very good and friendly.
