I spent two nights in December at this small hotel, only three bus stops from the central railway station (destination Fredriksberg Allé). The location was very good, since the buses (26 + 6A) are connecting different quarters of Copenhagen. The staff was very helpful, the service was good, however no luxury. The interior of the rooms has all bare necessities, including a hair dryer. However, there is no soap nor toiletries to take away, no real cupboard, no water kettle etc. The interior design is typical Danish minimalism - functional but no additional luxury. The mattress of the queen sized bed was comfortable, and the room was very clean.
My room on the 1st floor was to a small court, and thus very quiet, however with view to a gray wall that did not irritate me, since I was in a solemn mood anyway. However, you should book the top floor, if you want a brighter view from your room. Also, for customers with handicap this is not the right hotel - the halls are very narrow, and only 2 people fit in the tiny elevator at a time. Also there are steep steps leading up to the entrance, and from there to the reception.
Since I booked the room at very short notice (I had to attend a funeral in the surroundings of Copenhagen), using TripAdvisor as a guide, I can confirm the positive reviews that I read before the trip. I booked the hotel via hotel.com, and paid € 86 per night, including a good continental breakfast (however, again very minimalistic - (no scrambled eggs, nor bacon, nor rolls or croissants, but good whole-wheat bread, 'Smorrebrod' and toast; tea from teabags, two varieties of cheese, small selection of sausages, cereal, cornflakes, fresh pineapple, grapes and melon, no fruit to take away), thus I considered this to be a good price. The note on the door said that the room was 1700 Danish Kronen per night - an equivalent of € 240 - which I consider much too high a price per night.
The shower (en suite) was OK, with a very small sink - I stayed in a double room which, in my opinion, would be rather tight for two people. Definitely bring your own shampoo (the installed dispenser has only a general 'fit for all' purposes detergent)!
The only real shortcoming was that WLAN was NOT included in the price in the room, and cost 50 Kronen (about € 7) per 24 hours which is untypical for Kopenhagen with many publicly available WLAN locations that are for free.
Book a room on the top floor (4th) !
Thus, for single business travellers who want to be close to the main train station without having the noise and rushed atmosphere, this is an ideal location and a good deal.
