From the main railway station and bus terminal it is not a short walk to the hotel, our flight was delayed so it was quite late at night when we were trecking up and down steps to get there. The nearest T-Bane station is not terribly close either but it's still in the city centre.
The service was friendly and efficient, the hotel seemed a little dated, especially the lift which was a strange experience. The room was small, we took a double on the first floor facing the street, the bed was flush against the wall so we had to climb over each other to get in or out, the desk was slotted in and I had to sit sideways on the toilet. The shower was adequate but I've never liked the wet-room idea and you end up with the floor covered in water.
The breakfast was good, a good selection, only slightly odd with it being in a Chinese restaurant and there being noodles available. The area gets very busy in the evening at the weekend, it seems like quite a party hot-spot and was a little overwhelming when we popped out at night to get some snacks.
We went on to stay at the Hotel Nebo in Copenhagen and this cost more than twice the price and was supposed to be a fairly luxurious weekend before 'slumming it'. I wouldn't say there was any real difference in the hotels so I find it hard to justify the price beyond having breakfast included. The room in Copenhagen was much larger and quieter.
