“Quaint hotel in perfect location”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

This is a nice but not luxurious boutique-hotel very close to Town Hall Square. Decorated with design furniture from the 60th and the room, with very comfortabe beds, had a homely atmosfere. The lobby area is decorated in the same style. Very personal and friendly hotel, for example, a glas of wine was offered by the receptionist when we came back on a Friday night. The only drawback is the asian restuarant next to the lobby area, where also breakfast was served. Not a very inviting place. However, there are plenty of small cosy coffee shops around the hotel and along the pedestrian street Strøget just five minutes away as an alternative for breakfast.

Room Tip: Ask for a room high up in the building to avoid traffic noise.

Dear Joakim2013,

Thank you for taking the time to share the experience you had with us.

We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the atmosphere - we try to make every guest feel at home with us. We are glad to hear that the beds were also very comfortable.

The restaurant next door is a different company that we work together with and we are sorry to hear that it was not to your liking.

We hope that you will consider staying with us again in the future, if you ever find your self back in Copenhagen!

Quite an experience to stay at this hotel. Well situated. Walking distance from many major attractions. Friendly staff. Much atmosphere due to the collection of Danish design. Excellent breakfast. The only negative element are the rooms. Basic comfort, although they do have atmosphere as well. My room was also quite noisy being on the street side. Still recommend the place and will go back.

Dear pilipili2009,

Thank you for taking the time to write your excellent review - we appreciate it.

We are glad to hear that you were well taken care off of our staff and that you enjoyed our passion for Danish furniture design.

We are sorry to hear that the room did not live up to your standard - the rooms have been recently renovated completely on all floors - something that we did in two phases, so perhaps you stayed in one of the non-renovated rooms during your stay with us. In regards to the noise, all of our rooms have double glazed windows that help a great deal in reducing noise from the street when closed completely and properly - of course there will always be some noise, as we are in the city centre of Copenhagen.

We would of course be more than happy to welcome you again and show you our new rooms. Thank you once again for taking the time to share your experience.

This hotel is furnished with great design classics from the 50s and 60s and gives an overall clean and stylish impression. I would love to stay here again. The location is perfect, and keep in mind the absolutely wonderful restaurant The Italian only a block away. What a lovely city, and what a great place.
The bathroom could have been more comfortable (a bit weak water pressure and a small zinc), but I would highly recommend Hotel Alexandra. The staff is friendly, safe and OK priced (to be in the city centre) parking opportunities close by. A !

Dear Tine S,

Thank you for your review and sharing your experience with other travellers.

We are glad to hear that you found our staff to be friendly and that you enjoyed the location of the hotel. The bathrooms are unfortunately not that large, as the building is historic and we are obligated to preserve the buildings atmosphere, as originally intended. We will of course make sure to be more observant in regards to making sure that water pressure is optimal in the future.

We hope to be able to welcome you back again.

Stayed here for 5 nights on business trip. A small hotel located along a busy main road but within 10 mins walk to the famous Stroget pedestrian shopping area. I booked a single room and arrived around 4pm at the hotel. The receptionist was friendly and the waiting time was very minimal. The room has a super size single bed and even though it was a little crammed it was sufficient. The room was clean but the pillow was too soft for my liking. The breakfast was served at the lele café at lobby level and it served basic western breakfast. From 1100 hrs onwards this place serves Vietnam dishes. The biggest plus point of the hotel is its Environmental conscious approach and how it rewards its guests for helping out in its aspiration. A voucher of DKK 100 was issued to guest who opts not to have their room cleaned. The voucher can be redeemed at the lele café for lunch or dinner. Love this approach! Bravo..

On my last night of stay there I was given a suite on the 5th floor. The vibrant colours of the room will make any heart beat with excitement and it is well adorned with designer furniture and fixtures. Love this room very much.

Room Tip: Since the hotel is facing a major street, if you are a light sleeper you may want to request rooms w...

The staff at the Hotel Alexandra are wonderful - well at least all whom we met during our stay. What a great hotel to have so many staff members who are so nice! Our decision on this hotel was based on proximity to central train station (not the Metro) which is where the train from the airport arrives. (Note - Metro trains also go from the airport but we were on the overground train). The hotel is on H C Anderson Boulevard which means it's in quite a central location in Copenhagen.

After a lovely staff member checked us in, we went to our room which we loved. This is not a five star hotel, or even an 4 star one but we found the room to be a very good size, lovely and clean and well decorated with some nice Danish design touches which gives it a bit of flair. In fact this hotel celebrates Danish designers. We were in just a simple room but it still had designer touches - but further up the room scale, there are many other rooms which are much more designer rooms. Our room had double glazing on the windows and even a double room door - which meant we heard nothing once in our room!

We had a desk, two small relaxing chairs and small table and a wardrobe. The bathroom was very small but perfectly formed and I really liked it! The shower worked really well and it had lovely but simple amenities - a large-size delicious smelling shower and hair wash that was in the shower (rather than individual amenities). There were the basics to make a cup of tea or coffee as well.

The lobby area is small but still it's a nice place to sit and wait for friends or read a newspaper. The internet worked well too.

Attached to the hotel is a Vietnamese restaurant - but it's sort of a 'fast food' restaurant but the food was delicious!

Would we stay here again - absolutely! We felt very at home here and it worked for us. Not quite sure why there are a couple of not so great reviews of this hotel as we're pretty critical of hotels and have certainly stayed in many around the world, but for the money, I thought this was just great!

Wonderful hotel. Very 'Copenhagen' with design furniture scattered about the place. Location is central and very easy to get around either via walking or with public transport. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, offering good suggestions for dinner and where to shop. The hotel's app was useful as well as the map did not rely on internet connection.

We had a wonderful stay. We bought a 72 hour transport pass from the train station at the airport. The hotel is just a short walk from Vesterport train stop on H C Anderson Boulevard. The Alexandra is clean, central and stylish and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. There is also a green option to not have daily house keeping - for this they give you vouchers that you can use in the Vietnam street food restaurant adjoined to the hotel. We didn't take up the breakfast options as there are so many places offering fantastic brunches that are like a smorgasbord on a plate. We loved our stay and would recommend to family and friends

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Probably the only spot on Earth where you can sit in, rest in, sleep in and admire so many pieces of Danish mid-century vintage furniture. Hotel Alexandra is a small, authentic, boutique hotel in Copenhagen - just around the corner of the City Hall Square, the Latin Quarter, the main shopping area and Tivoli Garden. Hotel Alexandra has over the past years collected a large collection of the world famous Danish mid-century vintage furniture and decorated the rooms with them. The rooms also have textiles, wallpapers and other gems that take you back in time to experience living like the design loving Danes did it in the 50’s and 60’s. As soon as you step into the Hotel Alexandra, you step into a time bubble – you can relax in the lobby, where during evening hours you can put on your favourite vinyl record from our selection, enjoy a free glass of wine and take a moment to take a closer look at one of our many designer books from our lobby library, all the while being surrounded by the finest Danish designer furniture. ... more   less
