Babette is a medium sized hotel just north of the city center (and just south of the little mermaid so if you're a tourist you can easily check that item on your to-do list). When we were there it was in the middle of the worst heat of the summer which made it obvious that there were no air conditioning, but as the windows could be opened it was not as bad as it could have been.
The hotel prides itself with being organic, and that may be, but be aware that it does not mean non-animal because large spots, including furniture and the elevator is covered in hairy cow skin. You better not mind animal skin and animal skin smell, or you will not enjoy your stay. Apart from that, the rooms (not the smallest size) were big, comfortable and clean. The beds were among the best I have experienced. I Wish I had something like that at home. We switched rooms after the first night since our first room didn't have a working WiFi and that lack of network points to another thing: The hotel is rather new, just a few months or half a year old, and seems to still be missing a few things like well placed hooks in the bath room, door stops where doors easily slam into walls and thresholds or beams that you can walk into. The "walk into things" part was extra noticeable at the top (fifth) floor which does not have the double height rooms the other floors have. Also, the key system seemed a little broken and the keys had to be reprogrammed several times. No big deal all in all.
The staff was nice and helpful through every question and request and if they read this, maybe there will be hooks and door stops soon as well (forgot to tell them before leaving).
We did not try the restaurant, or the breakfast so no comment on that part.
If you do visit the hotel, try to use the staircase at least once because it's a beautiful and hidden part of the hotel.
