Actually this hotel is brilliant for it's location. right next to the water for great walks, and next to a really good shopping centre, for all those daily essentials.
The hotel can be reached by walking from the Central station, or if preferred from the Dobblebro train stop 5 minutes away. Either way, don't panic. It's a doddle of a walk. And a great quiet location. Central Copenhagen can be extremely busy and full on in tourist season, so this is a nice place away from all of that. Added to that, there is the "hop-on hop-off" boat stop just behind the hotel. More handy that words can say.
The room I stayed in was based on the 1st floor, and faced the west highway. It was very quiet, the hotel is very quiet, I slept really well. The Air-con is brilliant, I kept the room temperature at 10c throughout my stay, this whilst it was a humid 22-27c outside.
The room had cleaning issues, dust everywhere, especially on the tops of the wardrobe, but otherwise ok.
TV channels include English channels ( CNN-BBC Worldwide), but I loved watching the Swedish and Danish ones as well. Even though I didn't understand a word of the Danish ones! There are no kettles or ironing boards, but I asked for one and received them within 5 minutes. Excellent.
I would really recommend this hotel for many things, but as a smoker received the usual leper treatment that goes with that these days. Originally booked a smoking room, but advised that " non were available, and that they couldn't please everyone! ", which after booking this specifically prior to the trip was surprising. It's always a shame when a hotel ignores requests, however anti-social smoking may be considered these days. they have 12 smoking rooms in the hotel. Some on the 5th floor, some on the ground.
I had a breakfast included deal, which was great. The breakfast room is well stocked and well run. They advise visiting it at 6:30 am to avoid the rush of later. Which I did, and after went back to bed till 9am! But to be fair, it was busy then as well. Good food though. Well run.
It's overall a great hotel, and the plus point heavily outweigh my negatives. And I would stay there again. It's location cannot be faulted, and this is so important. I love the new modern hotels over traditional and fussy hotels that abound. So if you like modern like myself, then you'll love this one. The lifts are bigger than shoeboxes as well, which is great. But take care walking up the main entrance stairs, and the glass stairs to the 1st floor with wet shoes. The 1st floor stairs are narrow and slippy, so use the handrail.
Overall highly recommended.
