        central heating is not very warm. Not enough tissue, don't well-prepared. bed is too soft and small for 1 person shower curtain is too short, so the water went over the ground.

        Friendly staff

        Request for a quiet room, preferably double was ignored. On arrival we were given a noisy front room (414). The receptionist appeared unaware of our request until I protested & he consulted a paper file. The hotel should ensure all paper information is transferred to the computer. Across the street was a busy 5 track railway station, on a curve so that the wheels of the trains screeched. We couldn't sleep. We were moved the following morning to a quieter room (423). However in both bathrooms there was an unpleasant smell of sewage. Improved ventilation & flushing of the drains within the building are an urgent necessity. V poor lighting in bedrooms.

        Yes, almost in the middle of the city, well connected and the train station just in front is not areal problem, because the rooms are well isolated

        The free Wi-Fi, sometimes a little slow and difficult to access in some rooms

        Decent desk and sofa in room (Superior Double). Location - close to train station and Conference location.

        Room quite cold & no thermostat to address this (snowing outside). Bathroom ok but smell of pollution suggesting drains might need sorting out. WiFi rather unpredictable. Cleaner repeatedly quite irritable about late check-out (despite this having been easily agreed with friendly reception staff member)

        the price was good, taxis were available quickly, centrally located but still very quiet and could get a good night's sleep

        wifi connection was more complicated than in most hotels, but still it worked

      • Family with children

        Not much is to like about that hotel a part of location which is next to the station and very close to city centre

        No facilities for baby, no baby seat in restaurant, no baby coat in room even when asked twice, no car-park near by need to walk about 500-600 meters. No air-condition in room which is just funny

        The young lady at the front desk was so good to us. She helped with wifi, directions and let me use an outlet. This one you need to hang on to and she definitely needs a promotion. She is the type of employee you want to keep !

        Very friendly and helpful staff. Free internet access, free wifi, good and plentiful breakfast. Was given wrong room (double instead of twin), when we realised I called reception and receptionist came straight up with key for another room which suited us better. Great location!

        Front of the hotel gets noise from station opposite. Can only hear it if window open.

        Its location to the sights in Copenhagen was very good for walking, 5 mins from Tivoli, 20 mins from Nyhaven, approx 40 mins to Little Mermaid & Churchill Park. The breakfast was excellent lots of different food and also hot options, (egg, bacon, sausage). The hotel though not cheap by European prices was good value compared to other hotels in Copenhagen. NB It is not a town to visit if you expect cheap drinks or anything else at a bargain price, however a very pretty walkable city.

        We had to change our first room as the toilet took 20 mins to fill after flushing. Even in our second room, the bathroom had a slight smell of the drains which was strongest in the morning. Everything else regarding the room was fine.

      • Family with children

        Our family room was spacious, comfortable and clean. The rooms face a busy road, however the windows block the noise well. Good location.

        Breakfast was ok but not brilliant.

        the checking in time was so late, at 3 pm , so we have to put the luggage on the garage room by ourselves, the room without aircon eventhough you prepare it with fan. the noises from trains were annoying. anyway i like the staf, they were very helpful and nice,
