This is probably the first time I´ve been really disappointed by a hotel. I can´t for the life of me understand how this hotel can be rated #20 in Copenhagen.
To start off the room was tiny and worn out. Yes, European hotel rooms tend to be small but this felt more like a 1 star budget hotel than anything else. Same goes for the bathroom, the toilet wouldn´t even flush completely. Even the toilet paper was of the hard, cheap type! Not to mention the walls - they must have been made out of paper! We could hear everything going on both in our neighbors rooms and in the hallway. And if that wasn´t enough there was some major construction work going on next door and the workers there started as early as 6am, even during the weekend and on a public holiday. I know that this construction probably has got nothing to do with the hotel itself, but a heads up from the staff would have been nice since it was impossible not to be bothered by it. We ended up going to bed super early because we knew what was waiting for us the next morning - not really how you want your vacation to be.
The WiFi is also the worst we have ever encountered at a hotel. Two out of four devices couldn´t connect and the connection on the to devices that did connect was super slow and kept timing out.
But there are however a couple of pros with this hotel.
The location is great. Hovedbanegården (Copenhagen Central Station) and Tivoli is a 5 min walk away, add a couple of more minutes and you´ll be at Strøget. The area around the hotel offers a great deal of nice resturants and bars, and there is also some decent shopping nearby.
The staff in the reception were also welcoming and polite.
The hotel also offers free breakfast. However we opted for brekfast somewhere else to get away from the construction site.
Dispite this I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. It may just ruin your stay in Copenhagen!
