Copenhagen is an expensive destination but this hotel, with its location and prices with included breakfast, meant we didn't have to compromise on anything.
This hotel is a semi-hostel in that there are private rooms but shared bathrooms, though there is a wash basin in each room. The toilet was tiny on our floor but the showers were very spacious.
Location is great. It's a quiet area but all of the main sights, the city centre, Tivoli, Nyhavn, The Little Mermaid, are all within walking distance. There is a market hall just across the road and the nearest station is only a 5 minute stroll away. More for very light sleepers: we had a room facing away from the main street and there was what sounded like the buzzing of an automatic gate/door quite often, so you may need to keep windows closed.
The rooms are clean and, though not huge, there is plenty of room for two including a small desk with chair and a wardrobe. Towels are provided along with soap and shampoo. The curtains weren't very good at keeping out light so if you don't want to wake with the sun or need darkness to sleep I'd recommend wearing a mask.
Breakfast was simple but good: tea, coffee, juice, toast, rolls, cheese, cold meats, spreads and fresh oranges. They also put out Merci chocolates which is a nice touch.
The staff, both at this hotel and the sister hotel which acts as reception during the afternoons/evenings/nights, are friendly and very happy to help. They were also happy for us to leave luggage with them after check out.
As mentioned in other reviews, there is no lift so you will need to be able to walk and carry your luggage up at least two floors of stairs.
Overall I enjoyed the hotel and I would recommend it as well as happily stay there again.
