“Not great facilities”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

Yes we know Danish Hotels are expensive but we were disapointed with the facilities here. 5 star prices but not even any coffee making facilties. We asked and were told we could upgrade our room at an additional cost - we had already paid £160.00 !! Surely a kettle isnt too much to ask?

The room was fine but you get a wet room not a bathroom with shower so it gets , well - very wet in the toilet area.

Location is nice and quiet and easily accessed by Train from Central Copenhagen. The station is 10 minutes walk away and you can buy multi trip tickets to save on fares.

Reasonable place in a nice area, rooms are basic and there is no fitness suite etc, no bar as such but bottles of beer etc available to buy from reception, staff really friendly and helpful, breakfast reasonable but lacks a choice of warm food.

We upgraded our room from standard ( ground floor ) to superior ( third floor ). Found the room small, clean and quite basic though there was no AC. Which is a drawback in the summers. Since the temperature was high during the last week of July, it really turned our room into a furnace. But we suggest you carry a small ventilator like we did, or check with the reception for availability. Netto is few blocks away and the nearest station is about a 10 min walk from the hotel. You can take strolls at the nearest park or visit the churches or catch up with a movie at the Kino close to Netto. One can also take the bus 169 or 179 to Lngyby Store Center for shopping or for having tea in one of the numerous cafe's in that area. Breakfast at the hotel is OK, just right to fill you up, free WiFi and parking is a plus, especially if you are on a long stay. The staff are friendly and discreet. Overall we had a pleasant 4 day stay in Gentofte and would surely return back.

It was a very nice hotel in a lovely setting. Very easy to get to Copenhagen but also near a park and lake for an evening stroll. The staff was very friendly and keen to make your stay a nice experience. As an example, after I had checked out I went to the gym and they still let me borrow their towels and offered me toiletries. I stayed there because of work 3 times over three weeks and they made it feel like home away from home. The rooms were pleasant decorated and had all the amenities your need. The breakfast was good and the restaurant had great food. All together a very pleasant stay and would definitely recommend to anyone.

Room Tip: I would go for rooms on the second floor and not the "upgrade" rooms. The second floor has...

It is a small hotel with nice and clean but small rooms (3 rd floor). No air conditioner so in summer you have to sleep with the windows opened and some bugs may get in. The surroundings are VERY quiet, not much to do or see but the train station is near (7 mins walking) from where you can take the train to downtown or airport. The food is good, not so expensive, the breakfast is included.

+ good value
+ free parking
+ free wifi
+ good breakfast (free)
+ pleasant staff
+ rooms were fairly spacious
+ fairly quiet rooms, you could hear the toilet flushing upstairs and TV very slightly from next door but that was it.
+ pleasant leafy suburb

- rooms were a bit worn down. Fixtures and fittings missing in the bathroom, limescale, but generally an ok standard. This is the only thing that really let the hotel down. I had ordered a standard room and chose to upgrade to a superior room on a higher floor for 100kr when we arrived. Was glad I did once I saw the room as I think I would have been disappointed with a room of a lower standard.
- it feels like a bit of a trek into central copenhagen. The train station is only 10 mins walk away and it takes just 20 mins so it's not a huge deal, but the transport is so expensive in CPH (70-80kr return train ticket)... On the plus side at least you feel safe walking home at night, not sure I would have if I had stayed closer to the central station. And the free parking is a huge bonus.
- the rooms were pretty hot at night, no ventilation or AC.

Perfect place to stay especially for business and when visiting family in the area. The bed was extremely comfortable, the bath was modern and very clean, and overall, the hotel is very quiet. Breakfast was fantastic. Only thing missing I could have used is a clock.
