This is a mediocre economy hotel on the outskirts of Copenhagen. There is nothing around. A giant supermarket on the other side of the road is only accessible for members with member cards (which we only realized at the checkout).
It is relatively easy to take the public transport and go to the city centre with buses 30 or 10 (both go to City Hall/Tivoli), although in the evening buses come once in every 30 mins only. Everything is very expensive in Copenhagen so what you save on cheaper accommodation you might lose on public transport or taxi fares.
The best word to describe rooms is featureless. Rooms are extremely basic. The only "extra" is a minibar. The one in our room made terrible noise, we had to unplug it because we could not sleep. Windows can be opened, there is no air conditioning. There are no toiletries, you have to buy them if you forgot something at home. Beds were too soft for me.
Breakfast was way the best thing in that hotel. Great variety of food, fruits and tea. Staff was also tolerant with late comers and they let them pick something.
The hotel also had free wifi, which, in practice, worked only in the lobby and pigeon post seemed faster sometimes than sending an email. There is a small recreation area on the 5th floor with sauna and a small pool, which was nice.
Staff was helpful and kind, however reception does not offer services, which are normally considered average or basic, for example, there is no money exchange or no selling of public transport tickets.
Some travel information say this is a four star hotel but it is definitely not. I'd still definitely recommend this hotel as it was clean, safe and breakfast was excellent but do not have high expectations because everything is so basic and there is nothing unforgettable there.
