Okay I booked this hotel almost a year ago so it was with great anticipation and expectation that was awaiting my visit to this hotel for my 5 night stay. On the whole it matched my expectations.
Location wise it is a 2 minute walk from Forum metro station which in itself is a 15 minute journey from the airport so connection it is great. Some may not like the fact that it is not in the central city but it's only a 15 minute walk or 2 stops on the metro to Kongens Nytorv and CPH isn't that big anyway.
I arrived at the hotel early but my room was ready so the receptionist (Simone I believe was her name) was able to check me in with little fuss.
The room was a superior double and was a nice and spacious and light with a desk, sofa, chair, refrigerator and "double bed"!! Now this was the downside to the hotel as the double bed was actually 2 single mattresses but even worse 2 single duvets!! I can normally sleep on anything but found it hard to get a decent nights sleep on a couple of nights during my stay.
I also made a mistake in asking for a room overlooking the courtyard. My thinking was that this would be more quiet than overlooking the road. BIG MISTAKE as a Londoner I should have opted for the traffic noise because at least that is a constant rumble of noise compared to the laughing, shouting, clapping , etc.
I never use hotel bars, breakfast rooms etc so I can't comment on these but going by all the positive feedback on these from others you have a great time using them here,
The hotel provides bike hire and for DKK125 you can cycle around the lovely pan flat city all day at a nice leisurely pace :) Hiring the bike was very quick and once you get used to the dutch (pedal backwards) brake you'll be eating up the KM's.
The staff were all friendly, welcoming and efficient and to be honest it is rare to find a hotel where all the staff are happy and friendly. Simone's smile could brighten up anyones most darkest day :)
Anyway i would heartily recommend this hotel with just the couple of warnings about the noise and the beds and if these don't bother you then you'll have a great stay.
I'd give a 5 star if they had proper double beds so hopefully they'll look into this and maybe change the beds.
I look forward to revisiting the hotel and Kobenhavn in the not too distant future.
