Think I was blinded by the company logo featuring 4**** in its emblem, hence I figured it to be a decent hotel, but I was mislead. Have previously stayed in the chain's Gothenburg Park (Götaplatsen) hotel, which was great. That may have confused too?
Anyway, purpose with stay was to sleep overnight as close as possible to Copenhagen/Kastrup airport, as I had a flight to catch 5:55 am. My first choice was of course the Hilton @ Kastrup. Yet the price tag for Hilton was way too much. Other reasonable Danish options were @ 3km taxi distance from Kastrup. Thus I picked this hotel, VERY close to the Malmö station -- connected via train to CPH airport (22 mins).
Think a **/2 star ranking would be more appropriate. Its sister, the Savoy, is hopefully better? Think I saw in total 2 other guests? Got over an info brochure saying the hotel opened in the mid-1980s. Don't think they have lifted a finger ever since then. Overall sloppy, outdated impression.
Wifi didn't work at that time. Tips to staff: get the dirty windows cleaned + dust off (e.g. top of crappy hair dryer).
Next time, if I ever leave out of CPH, I will aim for an overnight directly in Amsterdam or other connecting leg to final destination.
