I paid for it before a month and I don't care to remember... great location, clean and a great example of Scandinavian design and functionality. Tastefully done, the room was tiny but even carried an iron. The only disadvantage was that the hotel did not have breakfast included. Remember Copenhagen parking is a nightmare... the hotel does not provide parking.

If there was a rating for good, I would click on it but there is only average and very good and this hotel is not very good. The positives: Central location, clean, well kept, friendly and attentive staff, good choice of English speaking BBC channels on TV. The negatives: small room, poor quality mattress and pillows. We felt on reflection...

We spent three nights at the hotel and enjoyed the location, helpful staff and breakfasts. Our room was a standard and a bit on the small side but adequate for a short stay. The room rate was reasonable and we would stay here again.

The hotel is well located a few minutes walk from Central station. The place is very chic and funky. Our room was small but stylish and everything we needed. We found the hotel quiet and comfortable. We hired hotel bikes to explore the city on. Really enjoyable stay.

We chose this hotel after consulting tripadvisor and its high rating (4/5). We paid around 630 euros for 4 nights breakfast included. The hotel was nice, the breakfast quite good, sometimes crowded but ok. It is close to city center but not in a great area, but that was ok, too. However, I find it unacceptable for a 4* hotel...

The hotel itself is close to the main train central, so pretty downtown, on a quiet side street though. The hotel itself is clean and nice, but nothing special. Not lifestyle nor romantic.

Staying in Inner Vesterbro

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner Vesterbro
This neighbourhood is home to Tivoli Gardens, a world famous amusement park and beautiful garden always worth a visit. Just west of Tivoli, you’ll find Copenhagen Central Station, from where you can reach just about every part of Denmark within 5 or 6 hours, or you can reach Copenhagen Airport in less than 15 minutes. Next to the Central Station, you’re in the middle of “old” Vesterbro, where several cultures and hundreds of languages are spoken in an area not more than one square mile. This neighbourhood is considered one of the most trendy places to live in and to visit in Copenhagen. For a real treat, visit Kødbyen ("meat town"), home to several restaurants, cafés and nightclubs, all within a short walk of each other.
