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.

I booked one night in this hotel as a surprise for my Husband-to-be, so we could relax the night before our wedding. Location is great, in the city center, a few steps away from the Central Train Station. I fell in love with it by looking at pictures on internet and even more

Boutique eco friendly hotel, situated very close to the centre of Copenhagen - a 10 minute walk tops. The train station is a 2 minute walk from the hotel, which is ideal when the easiest way of getting out of the airport to the centre of Copenhagen is a 10 minute train journey.

Me and my daughter stayed here for three nights. She is not used to hotels, so her expectations were really high - and also mine based on other reviews. BUT; the double room we got was really small, and the bathroom had only room for one person at a time - I guess it must be the

This is a boutique eco hotel. Their design concept is quirky, playful, modern and warm. The staff is friendly and extra helpful. Our room was larger than expected, comfy bed, nice bathtub/shower. Plenty of closet space. I liked their little touches like the lemon green vintage

We absolutely loved our hotel room. It had wonderful character and was so warm and welcoming. We felt immediately relaxed in the room. The check in and out were easy. The location is within a few short blocks of a main train/metro station so it is easy to get to. We found some

Reading a lot of bad reviews about this place, is it really that bad?
No, it’s a wonderful hotel. I too was very unsure about the mixed reviews. It’s a block away from the main train station so it’s very easy if you are coming to Copenhagen by train. The train station area in large cities is always a little seedy but I did not have any problems coming and going (as a single female traveler) on my own at all times of the day or night. However, if you do go left out of the hotel you do end up quickly in an area I didn’t feel comfortable in (hookers, drug dealing, and mentally unstable people hanging around) but I would not let that stop you staying here. You will spend all of your time going in the opposite direction so you won’t have to deal with this at all. As for the noise that people report. I specifically asked for a quite room and was give a room in their other building that was absolutely lovely and quiet. It didn’t have a view, but it was so peaceful (and I had the window open all night as it was so warm). The room also had a portable fan. The people who worked here were all warm and friendly. I would not hesitate to stay here again!

The spa costs around $40US, you can walk to Nyhaven (the coloured buildings) in around 15 minutes - it's a lovely walk. Tivoli is shut until April so unfortunately I didn't get to try it out so can't give my view. All in all though, the hotel is great - I'd highly recommend it.

"Ask for a big room with a bathroom where you are able to stay more than one person"
"2nd building was very quiet, though it required a walk through the courtyard, no A/C in rooms, heated bathroom tile floors (amazing!)"
"Ask for a room to the back"
"Ground floor in building 2 a bit noisy"
"Nice & quiet in House 2 (set back from main road)."
